The fourth and final installment of a "riveting" (RT Book reviews) urban fantasy series about a renegade mage and the demons who love her.
Complicated does not begin to describe Arcadia Bell's life right now: unnatural magical power, another brush with death, and a murderous mother who's not only overbearing but determined to take permanent possession of Cady's body.
Forced to delve deep into the mystery surrounding her own birth, Cady must uncover which evil spell her parents cast during her conception…and how to reverse it. Fast.
As she and her lover Lon embark on a dangerous journey through her magical past, Lon's teenage son Jupe sneaks off for his own investigation. Each family secret they uncover is darker than the last, and Cady, who has worn many identities—Moonchild, mage, fugitive—is about to add one more to the list.
Banishing the Dark is the last book in the Arcadia Bell series. And it begins about a month after the third one ended. Cady is going to try to take down her mother once and for all, and she also has to figure out a way to save her family, and more. But it is not as easy as you would think. Especially with Cady needing to keep secrets from her mother, and also trying to learn everything her mother did to begin with that created her. They must race against the clock if they want to help save Cady, and get rid of all the crappy stuff going on.
This book was really really good. I was so sad to see the series end, and this was the perfect way for it to go. I really loved getting to see more interaction between Cady and Lon as well. They are a great couple. And then getting to see Jupe's point of view was just icing on the cake! Then the ending with the epilogue was just awesome. This was a perfect way to finish off this series, and I very much enjoyed it.
