Harley Merlin and the Mortal Pact by Bella Forrest

This is the 9th book and the final one of this storyline in the Harley Merlin series.

Without magic, Harley knows the odds of defeating Katherine are stacked against them. Yet a sliver of hope survives in the pages of her parents’ Grimoire. The final, mind-boggling spell entails making a deal with a Child of Chaos. But what must be offered in return?

Finch wants to be the one who ends Katherine. Mother Dearest brought him into the world, and he wants to take her out. He will give anything for that chance—even his life.

Meanwhile, Katherine needs Harley’s body, or her carefully crafted façade will crumble. And she can’t let that happen, not when she’s so close to becoming a goddess walking the Earth.

Unbeknownst to them all, Chaos still has surprises in store—ones that not even Eris herself could predict—in a showdown of epic proportions.

I absolutely love this series. This book provided a satisfying conclusion to this storyline. The story has been brilliant and the plot developed at a good and fast pace.

The characters have been brilliant. I love them all. Harley is just great. She’s strong, brave, kind and always looks out for everyone else. Finch was the true hero in this book though. It was great to have his point of view included. It was also good to have Katherine’s point of view. Reading her thoughts whilst the events unfolded put another perspective to everything.

This book had me completely drawn in to it. There were highs and lows for everyone. There were losses and victories. It was a roller-coaster of a plot.

Overall, I absolutely have absolutely loved this series and it has become one of my favourites from the very first book. I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*
