Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up—By the time this series concludes on the 401st page of this volume, the Earth has been rent at least three times, two cats and one human have been reanimated, the Horned God and the Goddess have engaged in hand-to-hand combat, and Merlyn has been revealed as the fourth wise man. Although "Wicked" had ceased publication with the release of the fourth book, Spellbound (S & S, 2003), recent reissue as a pair of double volumes has reinvigorated its popularity. The series follows Holly and her cousins, sisters Amanda and Nicole, who discover their inherited power as witches, learn of their family's position of power among those who practice magic, and attempt to resolve a historic war between their family and a powerful clan of warlocks. Resurrection resolves the conflicts and dilemmas established in the earlier novels, albeit in a much higher fantastic mode than in the first installments. The narrative details past events that inform the characters' current situations and even allows the characters from the past and present to intermingle to dramatic effect. Readers of the original (or rereleased) novels will be interested to discover what becomes of the cousins and will find the conclusion outrageous, somewhat surprising, fantastic, and satisfying.—Amy S. Pattee, Simmons College, Boston END

And finally, the ending was terrible.
As I expected, this twist was a very, very big thing in this book and I was concerned that the effects of such a twist might result in a story/writing fumble.
I had started reading the series and need this book.

The first books in this series were so wonderful and thrilling with many twists and turns, but alas, there were too many twists and turns for my liking in this one. I felt like I was discovering something new every few pages. It was just too much. I know it's fiction, but it was just way too much. Too unbelievable even for the fantasy genre. I was left feeling disappointed and disillusioned as well as very confused.

There were too many loose ends and happy endings. Why did Eli end up being "good?" Why was Owen left to live after it is known that he is Merlin's son? And why the heck did we have to include Merlin and Christian beliefs in the story? In the end, the pagans lose out to the one true " God." Yeah, OK *rolls eyes* And let me not even get started with Holly becoming blind and one of the Justices who keep things in balance. I loathed the ending. I know the authors were trying to give everyone a happy ending, which is something I always hate, but please do better. I mean, the main characters, Holly and Jer, received the most depressing ending. Holly can be only with Jer for a while in some stupid castle, but then she has to go back to her new job. So, where does that leave Jer and where does he go after that? How is that supposed to be a happy ending? For all that love between them, they never were together in the books. Kari was with Jer more than his so called soulmate. And oh yeah, Kari is some kind of recarnation of Karienne, Jean's mistress. Lame. And more reincarnations. Nicolette and Elijah are now Nicole and Eli? What? Apparently, the whole Deveraux and Cahors feud started with them in the 1200's. But it was so confusing that I did not get it. Nicolette and Elijah are in love and supposed to meet but end up disappearing.

Like the other reviewers, I had waited a long time for this one. Some of the plot tie ups were expected, but others just felt a long time coming. After remembering the battles in the other books, one thing became clear when reading this one-the authors didn't like killing off characters. For everyone that "died"-someone ended up coming back (hence I guess, "Resurrection") but I found myself wanting closure for some of the characters. At the end of this book I felt like almost every character had a near death, death, or ghost experience, and it ended up seeming like nothing but a jumble at the end. It was nice to finally have a conclusion to the series, but that is really the only reason to read this one.

I don't know what the authors were thinking when they introduce a character who changes time. Maybe they thought they could save a dying story with dozen plot lines change. It's all poorly done. Like pulling teeth without medication.

This book just sort of spins out of control. Let's throw in Merlin. Everybody change sides. Holly's not a witch any longer.

After 4 previous books about witches, suddenly angels show up to save the day. Regardless of that - in the final battle, Jer, the sorcerer, "chuckles at the Christians and their quaint belief in one god." Really? I thought for just a second that he had a brain.

Then the goddess and horned god turn out to be bad guys thwarted and banished by the One True God - and Holly, who drops in after throwing a silly tantrum in the "Blind Justice" chambers - realizes she's always served God.

I'm a Christian. God is my all. But for a story line, I felt like I'd been duped. It's not a supernatural thriller. It's anti-witch propaganda. Adding fuel to a lot of self-righteous fanatical Christians belief that the horned god of the Pagans is actually satan.

Then all the characters, regardless of finding out that their deities are evil - go back to life as it was before.

Wow, the other books were decent, better than the Twilight Series but this book was horrendous. The only redeeming quality was it ended the series. Everything else was terrible.

This final chapter of the story of the Cahors witches, Holly, Amanda and Nicole, was a big let down. It was like the authors had no idea of how to finish up all the plot twists in the previous novels so they just started grasping at the first thing they could think of.

First of all, they were SO off base with the myths and legends of the God and Goddess that the reader is left thinking "Where the heck did this come from". Taking a little creative license is okay but going so far off base is not.

I think the biggest turn off for me, is that the authors are literally pushing their religious beliefs down the reader's throats, or at least it sure seems like that. Honestly, tying Christianity and the God/Goddess belief together was really nauseating. Come on, Merlin was the fourth Wiseman???

Then, there were so many different types of mythical creatures that the pages were really crowded. There were so many crowded together with their Christian Wisemen being portrayed as wizards (yes all of them) it made a very sloppy story line.

One of my biggest complaints with the previous 2 books was the frequent jumping around from one character's thoughts to another's. It doesn't seem possible but there was actually more of that going on in this book. Some pages jumped to 3 points of view, all in the span of one page! It is very obvious the authors did not pay any attention to their reader's previous comments for the very same thing in the other two books. I really do not understand why they felt it was necessary to do this.

And finally, the ending was terrible.
