Nessa has begun summoning a new skill that she does not understand: halos of color are appearing around people and animals, but what do they mean? And why are the darkest shadows surrounding Delphine? Who are the kids that lurk in the dark corners of the woods? Are there other wolves and shifters that Nessa doesnt know about? Daniel Host, Nessas father, has called together a group of special researchers and scientists to view the ultimate creation. All eyes are on him. And a storm is coming...In this epic conclusion to the Weregirl trilogy, Nessa must battle science and magic, leading her family away from the evil that threatens them all.
TRIGGER WARNING. Story contains the death of a dog. While it doesn't bother me as long as it pertains to the story, I think it should be said to those who are sensitive to the matter.

I'm gonna be quite honest, when I saw this on NetGalley, I requested it without knowing it was part of a trilogy until I was sent the copy. That's exactly why I ended up getting the first two and why this review took so long to go live (so I apologize!). I definitely don't regret having made this mistake because the trilogy turned out to be a great read. Be sure to check out my reviews for Weregirl and Weregirl: Chimera. Anyway, let's get into the review.

As the conclusion of a great trilogy, it had a lot of hype (for me) and expectations despite the fact that I should probably remain neutral. Nessa continues to be a strong character, though I do have to say that I found myself yelling at her when it came to decisions regarding her family. I mean, if it were me, my ass would go out and do stupid shit to make sure that my family is safe. The fact that she blindly trusts someone she doesn't know very well because of something her mom said before she left? Speaking of, there's no real reason for her mom to have said to protect the chimera in the end so what was even the point of her saying all that? That just really threw me in for a loop and one that I didn't particularly enjoy.

The change in love interest was certainly unexpected. Welcomed, but unexpected. It also seemed a bit forced, almost as if Bell said "well, we need to have a romantic interest to keep things interesting, so let's just put this in there." The reason I say this is mostly due to how things play out in the end, which I won't spoil. If you want to learn more, you can e-mail/pm me and I will give details.

Overall, regardless of the few times I wanted to strangle Nessa, the conclusion was really enjoyable. With the way it ended though, it didn't seem like much of a conclusion. There's still so many things that happened that just.... disappeared. What about Paravida? What about what happens with Nessa and her family after everything? Do things really go back to normal? So many questions unanswered and it leaves things feeling unfinished which causes an issue for me considering it was supposed to feel like an ending. Regardless, I enjoyed the book and series overall. I definitely recommend it to fans of werewolves!
