Conclusion to the Cassie Scot series.

My Review

Without spoiling the book for those who haven’t read it yet it is sorta hard to review! I am sad to say that this is the final book in the series but happy to say that Christine Amsden reported to me with the release of book 3 that there are spin off books to this one with some great characters. So, it’s not completely over!

This series is easy to connect with and while I wouldn’t necessarily say it is YA I am not sure what I would call this genre. It is a great read for adults with an open mind and maybe even some interest in the occult, though definitely not mandatory. I would also allow my children to read this book because it’s not scary or beyond their realm of being able to understand the plot.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is in the mood for a really awesome read and if you want the full story start with book one of the series “Cassie Scot ParaNormal Detective”. This is a series you can really get into, learn from and totally enjoy!

The message that I take away from this and that I hope any young people take away from it is that it is not only okay to be different, but it is amazing to love yourself just how you are instead of trying to be something you’re not or impress people who don’t matter. It is beyond great to just be YOU!
