Book Review: Promised (Birthmarked #3)

In true fashion of keeping up with blogging about books in a series, this is the final review of Caragh M. O'Brien's Birthmarked series. The book is called Promised. You can find the review for book one (Birthmarked) HERE and for book two (Prized) HERE.

As expected, this book was adventurous. I enjoyed it just as much as the first two and could not put it down. Gaia is a narrator that I cannot relate to very much, yet she still captivates me and keeps me reading. It takes a strong character to do that, and I will say that I felt like I WAS Gaia by the end, despite our drastic differences in lifestyles. Promised delivers. 

This book tells of Gaia, the new leader of a community called Sylum, and her adventures getting her people to the Enclave safely. She thinks the long journey to the Enclave will be the tough part, but when they all arrive, that's when things really get rough. Will Gaia be able to protect the people who trust her and look up to her? Will the people of her past allow her to come back in, along with so many new people? 

I don't want to spoil anything from the first two books, but this one is spectacular. I highly recommend this series to all of my reader friends. You will not be disappointed.
