Just as Harper Price starts coming to terms with her role as David Stark’s battle-ready Paladin, protector, and girlfriend—her world goes crazy all over again.
Overwhelmed by his Oracle powers, David flees Pine Grove and starts turning teenage girls into Paladins—and these young ladies seem to think that Harper is the enemy David needs protecting from. Ordinarily, Harper would be able to fight off any Paladin who comes her way, but her powers have been dwindling since David left town…which means her life is on the line yet again.
New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins brings the fun once again in the finale of this pitch-perfect romantic paranormal comedy series.
I loved how fun this series was to read, and was able to dive back into this last installment without much pressure to re-read the series. Though I had forgotten a lot about the second book – the weakest of the series in my opinion – there were enough references and reminders for me to never feel lost in this finale.
I loved that we had a strong team of girl power in this last book, and that Harper and Bee were finally team bestie again and working well together. Everyone was just so much more grown up in this book. I was a bit surprised as to how little David wappeared, but I think it worked really well, Harper was being forced to pick her path and to weigh her role as a normal girl and a Paladin against the challenges she faced, and the betterment of people outside of herself and her little bubble.
The ending was satisfactory and adorable. And while there wasn’t as much snark in this one that has kept me laughing and enjoying Hawkins’s writing, there was enough action and interest to keep me sucked into the story and read it easily. Overall, a very satisfactory ending to a really fun series.
