Wow, not sure what to say, just wow, what a journey this series has taken me on. This series actually left me with a book hangover in a way. I needed more of this world, and more of Heath, lol. Wow, just love that guy.
This last book in the series (at least I think it is) really was the best, although they all build up to this one, so really, to me it was like one giant book, lol. I absolutely loved it, loved the ending, and was happy for the most part, but was not expecting a lot of what did happen to happen.
I have trouble writing this review, because I do not want to spoil anything for anyone, especially if you had not read the previous books.
I am not going to tell you anything about he story, you can get the gist of it from the summary, and like I mentioned, don’t want to spoil some of these amazing twist and turns.
We do get a lot of the questions answered, and can see that this could be the last book. But to me, it could go on, as there is always something more that can happen.
I would give many more stars if there were any, lol, Let’s just say, Max stars no matter where it is posted, lol
Great writing, and great story. I highly recommend it.
I only dislike one thing, and that's the cover, it poorly done, if you look, the girl is UNDER the wing of the Pegasus, just not possible, so, I have issues with that, I am a person who loves great covers, and the cover is actually what draws me to a book, so this is a big flaw to me. BUT the story is amazing, just wish the cover would have been done better (meaning the flaw in the wings and girl done wrong.
This book was given to me by the author for my honest review.
**Update note: The author has informed me, that this is the end for Raylas point of view, but she is not done with that world, so I really look forward to more of this world.
I have some great dream cast at my blog for the previous books, you should check those out. Direct link to one of them.>> Dream Cast Here>>http://concisebookreviewsbymichelle.blogspot.com/2013/01/giveaway-book-tour-five-elemental.html

Hello, Smashwords? I NEED MORE STARS!!!
Horizon is the final book in the Elemental Enmity series, and what an ending!! This was one of those series that will stay with me for years to come. Five stars isn’t even close to enough!
How do you describe a story that moved you, that days later you cannot get out of your head? I’m going to have to try, but know there is no way my review will do this story justice. It starts out after Rayla has been rescued by Heath, the two are in love, but she is still bonded to Zach (Ammon). Zack searches for his bond-mate and she is physically ill from their separation, but her heart only wants Heath. This disagreement between Rayla’s heart and body was heart-wrenching.
When Zack finds Rayla she vows not to give herself over fully to him. She doesn’t hide her feelings for Heath and Zack (who I expected to EXPLODE) accepts her, thankful to have whatever pieces of her she's willing to share. Another Fae, more powerful than the five Fae Lords sets his sights on Rayla. He’s vile, evil, powerful, and one of the most horrible villains I’ve come across in the paranormal romance genre. I won’t say anymore because it would be impossible to do so without spoilers.
The story is eloquently written. I love the way Christie Rich writes, every scene is written so vividly that I feel like I’m in the story. Every scene is full of action and *swoooooon* she makes me fall for every male character! How is that possible? I hate love tri-angles, but she has accomplished a love-pentagram (five sided – five Fae Lords) that I could not put down!! Her characters are multi-dimensional and her plot is deeply layered.
Get the first book in this series, FIVE, (it’s free from all book stores). Read it, and then try to tell me I’m wrong. I know you’ll fall in love with Christie Rich’s writing, just as easily as you fall in love with her characters.
Congratulations, Christie, on another HOME RUN!! I’m sad to see that this series has ended, but the ending was pure magic. Thanks so much for sharing it with the world!
