Review: 

From the very beginning after reading The Kiss of Deception I knew immediately that this series was going to be amazing. Well, Mary E. Pearson did not disappoint me in the last her Remnant series. I just wish the story wasn't over!! Lia is tougher than ever as you dive deeper into this fantastic fantasy world! You will just devour this beautiful book!! Even after reading the book I will definitely will be re-reading this amazing series because every reference is important. 

The book does start where we left off in The Heart of Betrayal where we see Rafe and Lia are rescued and start making their journey back home. While I loved Kaden, Rafe just won my heart in one swoop- especially during some scenes!! The Beauty of Darkness was everything that I expected. I still enjoyed the point of views from Lia, Rafe, Kaden and Pauline. All the relationships between the characters felt real especially with everything that happened. The characters were themselves throughout the entire series and they even showed that they can be flawed. 

Since the series began, Pearson woven together the books of History of Gaudrel, Song of Venda and Last words of Morrighan as very important keys to what the characters would have to face as well as wisdom. I found it fascinating how it wove together perfectly with the world building. Hopefully we will see a novella that explain more of these stories! The entire plot was built in pefect order to the very end to see if Lia will defeat the enemy who will  meet his end. Well at times I felt like my heart was breaking through some scenes (Lia and Rafe) it was definitely worth it with that ending and even some specific scenes (page 210 ish) Here I'll give you a preview: "You are what matters to me, Lia. If you don't know that already, I'll find a hundred more ways to show you." I was swooning at this moment. 

Overall, I loved The Beauty of Darkness. This series is a must read and you will devour them all so quickly as it will also become one of your favorites. Mary E. Pearson, I am already looking forward to your next book series (hopefully out soon) or I would be happy with more Lia, Rafe, Kaden and Pauline. Thank you for creating this world that I have thoroughly enjoyed.

5/5

Review: The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter

Review I thought this book was AWESOME!!! It is one of my favorite Greek mythology books. I practically finished it in one day:) My expectations were really high, and Carter did it beautifully and exceeded beyond it. I have always loved talking about Greek Gods and Goddess, its one of those cool subjects in history. From beginning to end you have to root for Kate to pass those 7 tests throughout the entire novel. The ending was really good and some of the scenes were surprising, I was in shock! But with that ending it was amazing. I loved the part where Henry gives Kate a dog (Pogo) because that scene was sooo cute, and also when they kiss for the first time! Kate was an easier character to like because she was a normal teenager, but she focused on her mother because she was dying, waiting for her to pass. But Kate is handed a somewhat miracle of meeting Henry when he saves Kate's friend Ava. Henry is Hades, but in The Goddess Test he is the perfect gentlemen, who would protec
