Fear and desperation leave Portia and Vance clinging to threadbare hope as life is given, and taken away. Manipulated, driven by bloodlust and the desire to claim sole possession, the stakes are raised higher than they’ve ever been before. Evil rises with the intent to dominate, leading them and their coven to the ultimate confrontation and battle—a battle which will force one of them to make a devastating, life-altering decision. Who will survive the final stand?
Possession of Souls is the fifth book in Lacey Weatherford's YA paranormal series, Of Witches and Warlocks. This is the final installment of Vance and Portia's breathtaking love story. They not only have to deal with life and death situations, but also their relationship with each other as they are being held captive.
This book will have you in suspense the entire time, wondering what will happen next. The stresses of their situation leave Vance and Portia struggling with their own relationship, and these scenes between them seem just as dire as the life and death situations.
Vance has had such a burden put on him, it would make any normal person go crazy. He grows a lot in this book, putting aside his wants and needs in order to do what he thinks is right. It takes a lot of work and effort to get past his inner demon. Every thing that he goes through just makes you love him even more.
Vance and Portia are one of my favorite book-couples of all time, but I am glad that things weren't blissful between them 100% of the time. These obstacles made the book that much more interesting and suspenseful, and also made their love even stronger. Despite everything, their connection was sizzling more than ever. They had some HOT, yet PG scenes.
This book takes you on another amazing roller coaster ride of emotions. There were happy moments, sad moments, sweet moments, sexy moments... The ending left me speechless - I feel like I really can't say much more without giving anything away. I just want to say that this may be the best Young Adult series that I have read, the writing and emotion put into these stories is just amazing. I'm really sad to see this series end – I feel like I actually know these characters and I'm going to miss reading about them. If you like any kind of paranormal romances, even if you're not a young adult anymore, I seriously suggest you giving this series a try. I don't think you'll regret it.
