WHO WILL TAKE CONTROL?
And an ancient enemy returns to claim a crown while a fallen hero tries to save a world in decay.-Goodreads
Review: A Conjuring of Light was a very good conclusion to a wonderful series. The biggest surprise was Holland. I really didn't care for him in the previous books and he was redeemed here. I loved how his storyline wrapped up. Throughout the series, Rhy definitely grew the most as a character and Alucard remained my absolute favorite of the entire series. Love him! I will say that there were several narrators here (like the king and queen) which seemed completely useless. I also wish we learned about Kell's parents (I understand he came to terms with who he was and didn't' care...but I cared!).
Overall-very good book and great series.
