Today, we’re continuing our week-long celebration of the release of Reckoning by Veronica Wolff, the final book in THE WATCHERS series. Be sure to keep reading after today’s review for your chance to win one of Veronica’s books!
Veronica Wolff’s addictive and seductive vampire saga comes to a thrilling conclusion with Reckoning, the long-anticipated fifth and final installment in THE WATCHERS series.
Annelise’s slaying of Vampire Dagursson has thrown the Isle of Night – and her own heart – into chaos. Though she shares a bond with the vampire Carden, her connection to Ronan grows deeper as he protects her from those who seek justice for and power from Dagursson’s death.
But there’s one thing Ronan can’t protect her from – his sister, Charlotte, who is alive and sworn to destroy Annelise and everyone she holds dear. Now Annelise must decide who she trusts as she embarks on a suicide mission to rescue the most important woman she’s never met: her mother.
Trapped in a deadly game against an ancient evil, not everyone will be left standing as Annelise faces the final reckoning.
As usual, Wolff has a knack for writing unexpected twists and turns — and Reckoning is no exception. Annelise’s goal may be clear, but the road she takes to get there is filled with treachery and surprises. Each new twist keeps readers on their toes, as Annelise navigates the always murky and deadly world of the vampires, and fights for he chance to have a real life, and save the ones she loves most.
I’m so glad Wolff saw this series through to its conclusion, because (1) I don’t know if I could have lived with so much left open-ended and unanswered and (2) it was so satisfying to follow Annelise’s story through to this finale. Reckoning is packed with action, intrigue, and sizzling romance. It is a worthwhile conclusion to a sexy and seductive series; frankly, I’m bummed out that not more people know about these books — but I’m doing my darnedest to make sure more people learn about it every day!
If you haven’t delved into the world of THE WATCHERS yet, this is the perfect time to take the plunge. Start with Isle of Night and binge read to the very conclusion. And if, like me, you’ve been waiting patiently for the release of Reckoning rest assured that the wait was well worth it. Wolff delivers brilliantly on this tantalizing franchise, and serves her characters well with a thoughtful and emotionally powerful, action-packed finale.
