Publisher's Summary

"Darkness is a tricky thing. Especially when it cloaks itself in light."

Luka isn't dead. He's not beyond saving. Tess knows because she saw him with her own eyes. After what she saw, she's sure of one thing: If they don't rescue him soon, Luka won't be Luka anymore.

If only she could convince the other members of the hub. They're not sure Tess saw what she claims she saw. And they're preoccupied by the fact that their kind is being systematically eradicated. Answers lie in an ancient prophecy, one that revolves around a 17-year-old girl who never asked for any of this.

K.E. Ganshert's final installment in The Gifting Series brings listeners on an action-packed journey through loss, sacrifice, betrayal, and the impossible choice between what we want most and what we know is right.

    "Fantastic!"

    I absolutely love this series. I laughed, smiled and cried with the characters. I didn't want it to end. I found myself cheering for the happiness of Luka and Tess.

    The only thing that's not completely concluded is the part about Summer and how she found out about the grandmother.

    "This book was so good it gave me chills!"

    The Gathering was a phenomenal conclusion to a fantastic series!!! I was so invested in the characters by this 3rd and final book that I felt like I was reading about my own real-life loved ones.

    There was never a dull moment in this story. It was full of action and kept me on the edge of my seat. There were twists that I didn't see coming, and the ending wrapped up all the loose ends, so I wasn't left with any nagging questions.

    Bringing a series to an end is always hard, but I thought this author did an amazing job of it! I will definitely seek out more books from her!

    I also highly recommend the narrator. She did a great job of bringing this story to life!

    "The best of the series"

    Overall Assessment:
    This is the third book in ‘The Gifting’ series by K.E. Ganshert. This book picks up immediately where the second left off. I really enjoyed the first two books, but this was my favorite. We finally got to see Tess develop into who she was meant to be. Once she accepted who she was, she was a force to be reckoned with. The ending was nice and I thought it wrapped up most story-lines well. You can see in my ‘didn’t like’ section why I said most.

    What I liked:
    – Again, Tess’s growth – emotional and her abilities
    – Heather Masters did a phenomenal job narrating this series. I would listen to her again.
    – Like the second book, this one is action-packed. I didn’t ever feel bored during this book. While it was action packed, it also didn’t feel rushed. I thought the pace was about perfect.
    – The development of secondary characters. Getting to know Jillian, Link, Cap, and a few new ones was fun. I liked that we got to dive into their backstories or personalities a little more.
    – Ganshert wasn’t afraid to take risks with her characters. We lose a couple characters in this book, but nobody’s death felt like it was put in there for shock value (I’m looking at you Allegiant). While heartbreaking, it felt necessary to move the story along and for the character development of Tess.

    What I didn’t:
    – There was KIND – OF a love triangle, but I didn’t feel like it was completely resolved. I can’t say more than that because of spoilers, but this was the only thing about this book that irked me. Overall, it was fantastic.

    Would I recommend this book to family and/or friends?
    Yes!

    "Jenny's review "

    The final book in The Gifting Series is super good! A bit to much kissing for me but the overall story was very intriguing.
    Tess Eckhart is finally realizing that she is the prophecy and she doesn't like it nor does Luka Williams her Keeper.
    After everybody at the hub puts their lives on the line in rescuing Luka from the evil side and losing one of their own in the process cause them to scatter to find answers. Meeting up in Newport proves to be a challenge for the gifting and somehow the cops seem to know where they are. Is one of their own giving them away and how come Luka can't protect Tess anymore? Will the Gifting be stopped by Scarface and his goons or will Tess figure the prophecy out in time?

    "Still Amazing"

    I love this whole trilogy. I have been having a hard time listening to books but this made me listen nonstop. I will be buying hard copies of these books just because I loved them that much.

    "Worst of the three"

    The story line is interesting and I wanted to find out what would happen but the writing in this book was so forced. Way too many similes and metaphors. It's like the author couldn't come up with more story but really wanted to have 3 books. And there were so many moments I was screaming at the characters because they did the most unrealistic things.
