Victories by Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill


Victories is an excellent wrap up to a good four book series. The authors did an excellent job tying up loose ends and making clear everything that had gone on in the previous three books.  I thought the previous books dragged a bit as they focus primarily the insecurities of a bunch teenagers.  This book has more action and consequently was a more interesting read.

This book is definitely a young adult book and is marketed as such.  That is not to disparage it but a caution that it may be a bit juvenile and if that turns you off , you should be aware of that fact.

Spirit White finally discovers what her magic powers are.  She finds out some surprising facts about herself and her friends.   Losing a friend provides the pathos of the book making victory a bittersweet success.   The kids face their insecurities and tap their inner heroes in battling evil.   The King Arthur aspect is finally clear in this final volume.

This was a good series.  For my taste, there could have been more action in the first three books but overall it was a good series.  

I recommend the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
