Author: Katlyn Duncan
Publication Date: February 27, 2014
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars
The final installment of The Life After trilogy…
A Life for a Life
The battle between Shadowed and Guard has brought destruction and terror to Gate Seven and now Maggie wants revenge. As the only after-life being who can save the souls from ultimate death Maggie comes face to face with her own human body, preserved for a century, waiting for just this moment to arrive.
Yet, how far will Maggie go to exact her revenge on the Shadowed? And when she comes face to face with her past, how will she survive the onslaught of memories she thought long gone?
For when the truth comes out all is not what it seems and Maggie has finally run out of time… She must choose her destiny or watch all she has perish in the fight for her life!
This was a great conclusion to a solid series. I really enjoyed Soul Betrayed, although I did feel at times that Maggie regressed into her past a little too much. Katlyn Duncan did a great job creating a dynamic character though, so Maggie was still able to become who she needed to be.
Once Maggie got her memories back I thought she got very reckless. It ended up working out for her, but her willingness to get whisked away by the Shadowed seemed very foolhardy. I did like that she was able to team up with Jackson and find out the truth, although it did bother me that she was willing to go with him without an explanation first.
It was also very interesting to see Maggie interact with Hannah especially after what happened. I was not prepared to start feeling sympathetic for Hannah and Jackson after what happened. It took me awhile to come around, but by the end I didn’t think Jackson was bad or that Hannah was completely evil.
I thought the ending was very unique, and although at first I was upset that it wasn’t a traditional happy ending I think it was the right way to end it. Maggie has the potential to do so much and be so great, that it was awesome to let her realize her full potential.
I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars, simply because there were some flaws I thought surrounding Maggie’s memories, and also her blind trust in Jackson. In this book, she wasn’t proved wrong, but she could have so easily been that it bothered me. I can’t wait to see what if the author has anything more in store for Maggie!
4/5 – An Enjoyable Read, Well Written
