ENDURE Blog Tour {Review & Scavenger Hunt Giveaway}


Author: M.R. Merrick

Source: ebook from author for review

Wrapped in darkness and woven with defeat, every action Chase has taken since being exiled from the Circle has been met with a devastating response. Now he's been burdened with a quest that seems impossible, and he needs to evolve into something more, something greater than he ever thought he could be.
Armed with magic, friendship, and an unbreakable will, Chase must build an army and find a weapon capable of defeating the ultimate evil. But he knows that nothing great comes without sacrifice. Blessed by the very gods who have abandoned him and carrying the fate of all the worlds on his shoulders, Chase Williams is about find out just how much one man can endure.

My take...
It is super hard to start a book that you know will be the last of a fabulous series. It is even harder to start it when it begins with such a powerful, heart breaking scene. I forgot the hurt and loss of the last book, only to be reminded when ENDURE began. Oh my heart! My poor, sweet Willy.
Lately, some para/supernatural books haven’t been of interest to me. Only a select few I truly want to read. But the minute I step into the crazy, demon infested world Merrick has created, I know I am a goner. I truly love what he writes and would love to one day see it up on the big screen. Yes, this should definitely happen, like soon.
I will not write a lot about what happens in this book, because saying even a little will give so much away. Trust me though, this book was by far my favorite of the series. I think it was everything that Chase had experienced up until this point. Realizing, finally, that he isn’t alone in this. He has people he can fall back on and assist him when it is needed. Ah, my heart is sad thinking about how far he has come since the beginning. But it is a good sad. Like watching a child grow before your eyes.
I don’t know what it was about this book, but each and every word held my attention captive. Merrick truly wrote a fantastic book that ended the series perfectly. Chalked full of action, a side of romance, and some of the best darn characters you will ever read about…ENDURE is one of those books that will go down in history as one of my most favorite ever.
