Book Review: Loyalty (Mark Of Nexus #3) by: Carrie Butler

Release Date: March 7, 2015
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

"Rena Collins should be busy planning her happily-ever-after. Instead, she’s working for the enemy—or so they think. With the help of her fiancĂ© Wallace and his unscrupulous brother Cole, she’s been struggling to hone her powers in secret. If they can stop Faye, the leader of ERA, the prophesied end to their war could be within reach...

Too bad they don’t get the chance.

The human experimentation project has moved forward, thanks to the help of an outside group of supernaturals, and it’s about to explode across the country. With lives on the line and a violent clash of wills suddenly at hand, Rena, Wallace, and Cole must decide where their loyalties lie. Now. Is the future of humanity worth dying for, when they aren’t even a part of it? Just how far are they willing to go?"

My Thoughts:

Loyalty is a wonderful conclusion to the Mark of Nexus series. It is action packed from beginning to end and the twists and turns keep you turning pages. Loyalty does not hold back and proves that happiness does not come without sacrifice. This book delivers everything you have been hoping for and surpasses expectations. It is new adult paranormal at its best.

I think my favorite thing about this series has been the cast of characters. This book just delivers so many great characters that it is hard to know where to start. I guess I should start with Rena since it’s kinda her story. I love Rena. She has grown so much over the course of the series. She is feisty, strong, stubborn, and determined and I love that. I also love her wit and sarcasm.

Then we have Wallace who I also adore. He has also shown a great deal of growth. Honestly, all of the characters have grown and I truly love that. They progressed along with the story and that was awesome. Wallace no longer lives in fear of himself and is finally beginning to live his life. I loved seeing him open up.

And now we get to my favorite character. Cole. We all know how much I adore him and I swear to you, Cole stole the show in Loyalty. Every single time he showed up, he managed to become the center of attention and that didn’t surprise me in the least. He is still his funny and inappropriate self, but he has also grown up and he knows what is truly important now. I was so proud of Cole in this book.

Loyalty is not like other new adult reads out there and I love it all the more because of that. The romance is the center of the story and what set everything into motion, but really it is about so much more than that. It is about the very serious threat to the world and what this little rag tag group can do to stop it. It has twists and turns everywhere you go and trust is not given easily by the reader. I loved the non-stop action.

All in all, Loyalty is everything I was hoping for in a conclusion to the series. This is easily my favorite of the series and I loved seeing the characters I have come to love get the ending they deserved.

Strength (Book One) is currently free! So now there is no excuse not to get started on this series.

  6. Okay, I'm sad this series has come to an end, and I haven't even started it yet! I know how much you love it (and Cole), and that tells me this is going to be a great series for me. I adore the sound of it as well as this group of characters. I'm so happy the conclusion was everything you hoped for. Fantastic review, my dear! *smurgles*

  7. Another series I really want to read. And I really like when they're all out - binge reading. Maybe soon. Glad you enjoyed.
