Book Review: Midnight's End (The Fae Games Book 5) by Jill Ramsower

204 pages
Sorceress, enchantress, deceiver, murderer—I’ve been called all those and more, some that might make you blush. Lucky for me, I couldn’t care less what people think about me. I’ve had my sights set on one thing for the last thousand years, and that’s all that matters. I’ll do whatever it takes to find the cauldron, even if it means taking on a partner. They call him a knight in shining armor. For me, he’s my golden ticket. He fell into my lap, quite literally, and now he’s going to help me get what I want.

I don’t play particularly well with others, but he’s the best shot I’ve got, so I’ll hop on that train and hope it gets me where I need to go. He thinks he’s going to crack my shell and see what’s on the inside, like maybe there’s a warm, gooey center to make up for the hard exterior. He’s in for a world of disappointment. Everything soft and delicate about me became rough and hardened a long time ago. I’m Morgan Le Fay, and I’m the villain in this story.

In this thrilling finale to The Fae Games Series, Jill Ramsower ties together the four previous books in a romantic adventure full of jaw-dropping twists and heart-stopping heroics you won’t want to miss!

Warning: This is NOT a Young Adult novel! It contains graphic violence and scenes with adult sexual content.

Jill Ramsower’s Arthurian Legend-inspired Fae Games has been an overall winner. The series features action-packed storylines, smouldering romance, and strong female leads. Book five, Midnight’s End, is an especially strong installment. The tables are turned and we have a book written from the perspective of Morgan Le Fay, the big bad villain featured in the series’ earlier installments. The shift in perspective gives the series added dimension and interest.

While imprisoned by Merlin on fae lands, Morgan plots to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to achieve her goals. While her motivations have been largely misunderstood, her notorious reputation makes it difficult for anyone to trust Morgan. Her assigned companion Knight is drawn to the sorceress, but wary given her laundry list of misdeeds. The plot of Midnight’s End is rich and Morgan’s quest unfolds with imagination. There are many twists and turns along the way to keep the reader wholly engaged. I was initially skeptical; how would I identify with or care for the much-maligned Morgan Le Fay? Ramsower met this challenge formidably. Morgan and Knight are now my favourite characters in the series.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series and highly recommend it to urban fantasy and paranormal romance fans. Ramsower’s take on the King Arthur legend is modern and refreshing.
