Purchase on Amazon KindleTo be completely honest, I may not be the best person to review this series. The only reason I finished this book was because it was the last book in the series and I had to see how it ended. I really wanted to walk away from this series, but I couldn't walk away when I was that close to the end, especially after I invested so much time into this series.
"The time has come for Ivy to face her dark fate. There are no other options—she must destroy Kreterus. Failure to destroy him will result in the annihilation of the world we know and Ivy being doomed to reside in the Underworld for eternity. "
The 13th Prophecy was hectic and overwhelming. I couldn't enjoy this novel because I was so turned off by the Ivy-Collin-Eric love triangle and the Ivy-Eric weirdness. So much happened in this novel, and the characters changed so much that they were no longer the characters that I came to care about. They were different, and not in a good way. I kept reading this novel because I was waiting for the conclusion, but the ending was weird and confusing.
I really enjoyed the first three books in this series: Demon Kissed, Cursed, and Torn. Each novel was nicely paced and well-written. I felt like I knew the characters, and I genuinely cared for them. However, the last two books: Satan's Stone and The 13th Prophecy, just didn't do it for me. They were complete chaos. I enjoy action packed novels, but Satan's Stone and The 13th Prophecy were just too much. Honestly, they ruined the series for me.
I gave The 13th Prophecy by H.M. Ward 2 STARS (2.5 STARS). I know that there are a lot of Demon Kissed fans out there. A lot of people loved this novel from start to finish. I just wasn't one of them.
