“I’ve come too far to surrender now…”
Eledan’s nightmare has been unleashed upon the worlds and with Oberon gone, only the messenger crew stand in its way.
Kellee, Talen, Sirius, Sota, and Kesh. Together, they are stronger, but there are forces on Faerie who do not want the worlds saved, forces that would see the Messenger and her crew torn apart.
Queen to Faerie’s new king, Messenger and more to the saru, lover to some and a weapon to others, but who is Kesh Lasota really? A guiding light or an unwitting puppet?
Answers are coming.
The time for lies has passed.
And Kesh will soon learn some battles can’t be won alone.
Her Dark Legion is the final installment in the Messengers Chronicles. It’s a reverse harem paranormal sci-fi fantasy series with fae in space. From the start to the end, this series was an exciting journey filled with action, adventure, magic, and romance. I can’t believe that it was finally over. I’m definitely going to miss this world and its complex characters. To avoid spoilers, please skip the summary part if you haven’t read the previous installment.
The story continues from where it was left off in the Prince Of Dreams. After king Oberon’s death, Eledan’s nightmare the hunt has been unleashed into the world devouring everything that comes in its way. Kesh and her crew are the only one who can stop this threat. To save the faerie, all the polestar fragments needs to be send back to its place to restore the balance. In the final battle between light and darkness, sacrifices are need to be made and Kesh had to make some difficult decisions that will change her fate.
I loved every character in this series but my favorites are Kesh, Talen, and Eledan. Kesh is a strong female protagonist and I really enjoyed her character development from the start of this series. Her connection with each member of the messenger crew was unique and admirable. She deeply cares for them and wouldn’t hesitate to sacrifice herself to save them. Talen was absolutely amazing! He’s my second favorite character in this series. His calm and serene personality never fails to impress me. Eledan is my third favorite and definitely one of the most intriguing characters in this series. I’m sucker for anti heroes who’re both wicked and smart. He never fails to steal the spotlight. Kellee is another main character that I really like, but he was a little bit annoying in this book. Nonetheless, I still love him btw. Coming to Sota and Sirius, I really enjoyed them. Whereas Sota was fun, Sirius was quite the opposite. He’s a total brute with a soft side which he rarely shows.
The plot was engaging throughout and there’s no dull moment. From the first page, the book pulled me into this world, and I never wanted it to end. It’s an emotional roller-coaster ride. The twists and turns were unpredictable. The romance and the relationship between the characters was well built and well developed. Unlike other adult RH books, this one was mostly focused on the plot and less on the sexy parts. The writing was addicting. The book was written in multiple POV’s, as usual. The world building was amazing. It’s one of the best aspects of this series. We finally get to see the faerie in this book and I loved exploring their world and its magic.
Overall, it was a great conclusion to the series! There are so many sacrifices, but the last one totally broke my heart, I still can’t get over it. It’s sad that this series was finally over because I’m not ready to say goodbye to Kesh and her harem. The Messenger Chronicles is definitely one of the best Reverse Harem series I’ve ever read because I liked every installment in it.
If you like Kickass Heroines, Anti-heroes, flawed complex characters, unique and twisted plots, Sexy fae, and lots of action and adventure.
I know not many people are comfortable with this genre, but if you ever want to give it a shot then definitely pick this series up. You won’t regret it!
