She was merely a pawn in their game.

And then something happened.

Once the fragile, naïve human, Evangeline has become altogether … different.

A being who holds formidable power, she may be the key to changing the course of fate.

Or she could be the final nail in the world’s coffin.

But Evangeline doesn’t know exactly what she is, what she can do. She knows only that she has to stop an enemy far worse than the Sentinel and the sorceresses—one driven by revenge.

And he’s hunting the man she loves.

As Evangeline fights to keep Caden alive and the human population from eradication, she can’t help but sense the imminent doom.

Find out if fate will prevail in the harrowing conclusion to the Causal Enchantment series.

why I picked it upI have read and adored the previous novels in this series and I couldn’t wait to see how K.A. Tucker finished off the series. I’ve been waiting for this book for a while!

plotThis novel was definitely the most eventful and thrilling of the series. Everything in this novel comes down to a boil–the fight with the Fates, the fight with Viggo, and the fight against the sorceresses. There’s destruction, hard decisions, betrayals, lies, deceit, kidnapping–basically everything under the sun. But oddly, it wasn’t overwhelming. Usually, when an author smushes this much action into a single novel, it seems rushed and confusing–not such the case with this novel. Everything flowed, and for the most part, everything that happened was understandable. The only part that I wished I would have known more about was the part with the Fates. That, I’ll have to admit, could have been expanded on a bit more.

Leading ladyEvangeline finally matures in this novel. Not that she was immature, it’s just that she grows out of her naive mindset. She finds out that not everyone is to be trusted, and that you can only depend on certain people to do you right. She also spends this novel adjusting to her new life as a vampire. Luckily, she’s a bit different, and that difference comes into play a lot in this novel. She grew as a person in this novel and became a lot stronger and more determined than she was in the previous novels. It was nice to finally see her grow into herself.

leading maleCaden was amazing, as always. He wasn’t as big of a part in this novel like he was in the previous ones. He was present pretty much at all times, but this novel wasn’t as centered around their relationship as it was about the action going on in the novel. So there isn’t much to say about him other than that we got to see a few emotions from him after certain events in the novel, and that he was always there for Eve when she needed him.

other charactersSofie- Sofie was also an integral part of this novel. like she has been in the entire series. We have to see Sofie make some hard choices and struggle with her position as leader. We read some of the chapters from her point of view. which really shows us what is going on in her mind, as well as showing us why she did what she did. It was a complicated game that Sofie was a part of, and it was interesting to see how she dealt with it.

The Fates- The fates are the ones running this show. They have their players and are moving the pieces. They’re manipulative and deceitful, and what happens to them is interesting to say the least.

The others- The others weren’t as big in this novel to where they’d need their own little section,, but they were as awesome as always. Veronique and Julian were also adjusting to their lives as vampires, something terrible happens to Amelie, Bishop and Fiona are as cute as always, and Mage is as serious as she always has been.

romanceAs I mentioned, the romance wasn’t the main focus in the novel. Although there was some, of course. But it wasn’t a big part of the story.

world buildlingK.A. Tucker definitely hit the nail on the head with the world building in this novel. The story of the downfall of the world was perfectly creative and realistic. It had different facets that it hit, and it was just great over all. It was definitely one of the better stories of the ‘apocalypse’ that I’ve read. So if you have a thing for the world ending, this is definitely the one for you!

conclusionAnomaly was a thrilling conclusion to the story of Evangeline and her friends. It surpassed my expectations and more, with only a few minor things marring its perfection.
