In a frightful world of dark magic and savage beauty, two sisters are about to discover that love is the most powerful weapon of all. Don't miss Elegy , the mesmerizing final chapter of the Watersong series!



An ancient curse robbed Gemma Fisher of everything that matters most--her friends, her family and the guy she loves. But now that she found the scroll that binds the curse, she finally has a chance to get her old life back. She just needs to destroy the scroll--but it's not as easy as she hoped. Protected by ancient magic, it seems utterly indestructible. Making matters worse, Penn has grown even more obsessed with stealing Daniel for her own...and she's about to succeed.

Gemma's frantic search leads her to someone who might be able to help--the mysterious immortal who cursed Penn and her sisters thousands of years ago. As Gemma and her friends unravel the tragic history of the curse, they plunge deeper into a world of shocking secrets and twisted vendettas--and it'll take all their courage, love and the power of their friendship just to survive. Gemma has so much to fight for and she's never wanted anything more, but will it be enough to stop her enemies?

This is the last book of the four book Watersong series, which has been quite an adventure. I am sorry to say that the violence does just keep repeating itself over and over, and I really wish I had read this at 16, and not when I was younger. Innocent people be warned! The ending was not what I was expecting, but I guess at this point I didn't expect much in general. But I was pretty satisfied with it in the end, and I guess somewhat to this day. Characters developed rather nicely, unlike in the second book which felt like a filler in a cake. This was definitely a nice layer of (bittersweet) icing!

Great! Wow, just an incredible conclusion to this series. Everything figured itself out, it was a perfect ending with a sympathetic character dying, and all that happened to right the wrong of the curse made logical sense- even Diana's reaction to being asked to help. I thought this book was very captivating, it kept me on edge, and it all together just made me happy :) Plus, I love Harper and Daniel!!!!! Yay!!!

A good end to the series and not nearly as predictable as one would expect. I'm still in love with this author and the worlds she creates. Looking forward to future books from her.

“ Perhaps it is the heart that is the most supernatural thing of all. Not just because of the power it wields over mortals and gods but its ability to remain unchanged even in the face of peril or temptation. No curse, no spell, no creature on earth or in heaven can reroute its true course. What the heart loves, the heart will always truly love. ”
