Wilde's Meadow (Darkness Falls Book 3) by Krystal Wade

Wilde's Meadow (Darkness Falls, #3) 
Genre: YA, Fantasy, Romance
Expected Publication: November 5, 2012

Synopsis: Picking up where Wilde's Army (Darkness Falls Book 2) left off, Kate and Arland are setting off with their army to seek out the evil god Dugball and his hoards of daemons. They must meet the god in the Meadows, but getting there will be risky - despite fighting off daemons, they also have to fight their own fears, gain the trust of other-worldly allies and not starve in the process. And even if they beat the evil God, who is to say that the ending will be happy?I loved this final installment in the trilogy. Once again, Wade runs you through the whole gamut of emotions. Fear, nerve-wracking anxiety, sadness, and bittersweet happiness. Besides the darkness, daemons and huger, the Army must first conquer their worst fears by going through the caves.  OMG the caves!  Battling through the caves was brilliant and my very favorite part. In a sick way, I wanted them to stay in the caves for much longer - it totally messes with your head as they try to face their fears head on and not succumb to them.  Then, Kate and Arland must enlist the help of creatures from other worlds...including Earth and the loved ones Kate left behind.  

After all that, there is still the battle against Dugball.  She and her rag tag army must fight daemons in all their incarnations, destroy the evil god and restore Brad, and stay alive in the process.  And then when the battle is over, it isn't all happily ever after.  There's the aftermath and consequences to face.

I enjoyed the battle scenes, but more than that, I loved the ending. Bittersweet and touching, I unashamedly cried like a baby. It's hard to say goodbye to such wonderful characters, but I am happy that their stories wrapped up so satisfyingly.

Rating: 5 stars!
