The Final Calling (The Crucible Book 5) By: Angela Colsin 5 out of 5 stars
The story The Final Calling (The Crucible Book 5) by Angela Colsin is a paranormal romance book. This is the story of Edith Walsh. She is working on her Final Calling which once completed will make her an enchantress. All she has to do is gather the items together to complete her staff, oh and to avoid a tyrant named Rothario that has marked her for death because of a prophecy. This will lead to her accepting the help of a demon that is determined to keep her safe as he says that she is his mate. What could go wrong?
This is an awesome book that had my attention from the very beginning and held it right up to the last page. It is the second book I have read by the author and I love the way she weaves a story and the attention to detail that she gives. She creates characters that have you rooting for them to succeed not only on their quest but also to fall in love. The characters I love in this book are Edith and Isaac. Edith is excited when asked to be the apprentice of a sorceress. She works hard and excels to the point that she is offered to complete her Final Calling. Then she finds out that she is part of a prophecy and that she is marked for death. She also meets Isaac. He is a Perosian. He is a demon that not only has a past but says she is his mate. Edith is not experienced with relationships and doesn’t know how to handle Isaac. He, however, vows to keep her safe and wants to help her any way he can. Edith is confused about her feelings for Isaac and is unsure on how to respond to the emotions that he is making her feel. Will Edith take a chance and act on her newfound feelings for Isaac? Will she be able to complete her Final Calling and survive the attempts on her life?
Isaac has been waiting and dreaming of his mate for a long time. He knows that Edith is the one. All he has to do is convince her. She needs his help and protection and he gives both. Isaac is a demon with a past that he can’t remember. He is strong however because he is a fugitive he also has limitations. Isaac also is someone that says exactly what is on his mind. It just comes out of his mouth which leads to some conversations that are very hilarious. Will Isaac be able to keep Edith safe and convince her that she is his true mate, the one he wants to spend eternity with?
The other characters in this book are also wonderful and while most are there to help Edith and Isaac, some work against them. I love that there are characters from the previous book that return and you get to catch up on their lives. This is a book that has plenty of action and romance, the two things that had me quickly turning pages to find out what happens next. Will Edith complete her Final Calling and defeat the tyrant Rothario? Will Edith and Isaac finally get their HEA? Read this book to find out! This book does have adult situations which include some very steamy love scenes. It would be recommended for those 18 years of age or older.
in this entire series, Isaac has always been my favourite character for his cheek and rough charm, and i waited so long for his story ever since we first met him. i was absolutely not disappointed when i finally got the chance to read the final calling. it's delightful, steamy, and action packed, and i couldn't have asked for anything more. angela coulsin strikes again as one of my favourite romance authors!
The Final Calling is the fifth book in the Crucible Series by Angela Colsin. This Paranormal Fantasy is full of action, suspense and of course romance. This is the first book I have read in the series, so it can be read as a stand alone. I had no problems following along, but I would recommend that you read the series from the beginning because the backstory is so extensive, and if the rest of the books are half as good as this one you definitely won't want to miss out on some great reading. Ms. Colsin takes us on a roller coaster of a ride in this book. It grabbed my attention from the very beginning.
Edith is studying to be a magi and she is on her final quest, a scavenger hunt of sorts. She must collect the things to to make her coveted staff. This final quest will grant her eternal live and make her an enchantress. Of course there are many obstacles in her way. The first being a prophecy made centuries before she was born, that foretold the Steward of Perosians demise. He is not taking and chances and has marked her for death.
Isaac is a Demon who is on the run because he was convicted of murdering his family, but can't remember his past. He has been hunted by the Steward’s people for as long as he can remember. When Isaac meets Edith he knows she is his mate, the one he has been dreaming about. He has agreed to keep her safe through her quest even if it mean he must give up his own life.
This is a magical story that will hold your attention with the wonderful character descriptions and witty dialogue. I truly enjoyed this book and hope to go back and read the rest of the series.
Edith is a mage in training to become an enchantress. To become an enchantress she must complete her “Final Calling” which is a scavenger hunt to find all the materials needed to create her staff and gain immortality. To get all her materials she must journey through magical worlds/realms and encounter various magical beings that are good and evil. To make things more complicated, she is “marked for death” by a Perosian Tyrant. Luckily an attractive and loud-mouthed Perosian, Isaac, claiming to be her mate, wants to help her and will do anything to keep her safe.
Isaac has known that Edith was his mate since she helped cure him of a curse (read Light of Dawn – Charlotte and Ulric’s story) but he couldn’t pursue her until she had been trained as a mage. Now that Edith is ready to move forward with her “Final Calling”, nothing is going to hold him back from her. She is his and he is going to pursue her until she accepts.
Talk about an exciting and captivating adventure! This book has such a great plot that will keep you turning the pages and on the edge of your seat! I absolutely loved that Edith was on a mission aka “scavenger hunt” for all of her items to make her staff. There are so many people and magical beings she encounters on her journey and she has the help of an attractive and loudmouthed Perosian, Isaac, who claims to be her mate. There were some seriously funny, hot, heartwarming and heart wrenching moments that I LOVED! I really enjoyed Isaac as a character. He is well developed and his honesty/bluntness is really funny. It made for some awkward yet charming moments with the sweet and innocent Edith. Edith’s personal growth throughout the story was exciting! Isaac really pushes her out of her comfort zone!
Like I have said in other Angela Colsin’s book reviews (Blue Moon, Light of Dawn, Strange Brew & Fallen Hearts)…Angela creates such a wonderfully detailed world full of magical beings. Each story, like this one, has a plot full of twist and turns, making a truly captivating story. Each story/book follows a main character who finds or is looking for their mate therefore there is ALWAYS hot chemistry and romance. There are always some hot and steamy scenes!
If you are looking for a romance book that will take you on a journey and has magical beings – you have to check this book out!
The Final Calling is the fifth book in the Crucible series and follows the right of passage for Edith and the attraction of Isaac, can these two people together complete the Final calling.
Edith is currently mage apprentice but once she completes the scavenger hunt she will ascend to the next level, an enchantress. Although the tasks are dangerous it is right of passage and through completing these tasks she is somehow marked for death by the steward of Perosian regarding a prophecy that was discovered before she was born but predicted his demise and he is not taking any chances.
Isaac has become an outcast on the run for the conviction of murdering his family he is scared of running into the steward, he has been clever so far hiding from the steward’s minions but when he offers his help to Edith with her tasks will this throw him into danger and put him on the steward’s radar also. So he begins to help her and he starts to develops feelings more than just to protect her, she is his mate and going on the adventure he must keep her safe and protect her so she can complete her Final Calling.
The relationship between these two characters is complex and at parts you feel so involved in the story you are willing them to complete the task and get away from the dangers they run into. Edith’s character has no idea what these kind of feels that she is having for this sexy perosian but he has his issues of lost memories and she is unsure how to love a demon. Will they have their happily ever after or will the past intervene and destroy this couple.
The story flows and the world in which the book is set gets your imagination running wild especially with the twists, you could read the book as a standalone, but once you become involved you will read the other stories in this series. The character of Edith is a strong female lead and she shows true strength throughout the book, but also she has a vulnerable side regarding her experience with men and this is endearing and shows another level of complexity to the character. I can’t wait to read the next instalment in this series and would recommend this series to my friends.
The Final Calling by Angela Colsin is the fifth book in the crucible series so if you do not want to be lost and want to know what is going on go back and read books 1-4. This series is a sci fi fantasy romance that involves mages and demons. It is very well written and I love these books.
Corruption, lies, and betrayal, Alder, stood accused of murdering his entire family and is branded and banished into the pit. He is stripped of his identity and all memories. Isaac, awakens as his body is slowly decaying, losing fingers his teeth and eyesight and the only mage powerful enough to heal him is Chandra, but he wants nothing to do with that as her first apprentice was to be his mate as told by the prophecies. Except in the past to centuries she hasn’t taken an apprentice nor has she even shown interest in having one.
Edith lands the spot as the apprentice after curing Isaac of his curse on the first try.In order to become a successful mage she has to go through the Final Calling which is a scavenger hunt of sorts she has to gather items to create her magic staff which will grant her her immortality. Except Edith is a marked woman, marked for death by the Perosian Empire, the very same Isaac/ Eldar was banished from. Isaac will do whatever it takes to save his mate, even if it means sacrificing himself.
The Final Calling The Crucible is Book 5 in the series by Angela Colsin. It has it all from Romance to Paranormal and filled with Demons & Devils and is an erotic novel to boot. Not only will this novel leave you hot around the color but want to read the entire series. While The Final Calling can be read as a standalone, it is part of a series so it would be better if read as a series. However, as a standalone novel, it is an awesome and amazing read. The characters will have you believing you are part of their world even though you are not and the story line is very easy to follow. This author has created a wonderful world of characters and places that even though they are fiction you can still relate to no matter what. Even the villains in the story line will have you wondering how to find this magical place to become one of them. Angela Colsin knows how to create and write a paranormal romance that isn’t like any other on the market along with a magical element added into it, she may have her readers believing that mages and magic really do exist in another universe or realm and we can get there just by simply wishing for it. A lighthearted and fast passed read but still worth the time it takes to read it and reread it because the novel will quickly become one of your favorites.
I give The Final Calling (book 5 of the Crucible series) by Angela Colsin 5 stars. This review may contain spoilers of previous books in the series.
Isaac is a demon who has been a restless spirit for centuries. He doesn’t have a permanent home, just places he stays. He only has one true friend. He has never really been happy, but there is one thing he longs for. Her. The woman of his dreams – literally. He can feel her loving embrace, hear her sexy voice. He dreams of everything about her, but cannot see her face. He knows there is a prophecy, and it states that she will be his mate. He also knows that she will be a trainee of a powerful mage he knows. But there is more to it. This same woman is supposed to bring down an evil ruler and be a savior to many.
After a he touches a cursed artifact, he is left to slowly rot away. He hasn’t died, but he cannot heal himself fast enough. After many failed attempts to reverse the curse, he knows he has no choose left but to call the mage for help. He can barely see at this point, but he hears another voice in the room. It is the woman of his dreams! They are able to stop the curse and he starts to heal, but before he is well enough to find the woman, the mage takes her away. He cannot stand the thought of another second without her, but knows he cannot follow where they went. Patience is not a virtue Isaac possesses.
Edith Walsh has not had a good childhood. After her father died, her stepmother hated and ignored her. The kids at school made fun of her. She never fit in, never belonged. She has one best friend she would do anything for. When she is asked to help someone, she readily agrees. With the help of a powerful mage, she helps heal this sarcastic, smart-mouthed demon. She also learns that she has powers and is offered to be trained to be a powerful mage. This feel right to her, so she readily agrees.
Once she is sent out to finish her training, she is warned of a few things. First off, there was a prophesy that everyone knows about the one who will defeat the evilness that has come upon Perosia. Everyone believes it is her. There will be assassins after her just because they think it is her. Secondly, she will be hounded relentlessly by a demon, but she is not told why.
She quickly learns that said demon is Isaac, and that he believe he is her mate. She has never even really dated, she doesn’t believe in fate like this. Besides, she wants a man to love her for who she is, not because he thinks he is supposed to. She will not accept this fate business, but she does accept his offer of protection since she is still human and he is quite powerful.
Can she finish her quest and earn the right to be a powerful mage? Is she the one they talk of? Can she help the ones suffering? Could this crazy, smart-mouthed but sexy, caring man really be the one for her?
This book is incredible. I have read another book in the series and I was not disappointed in the least. This is a longer book and is was a bit daunting, but I could not put it down! The characters are written so wonderfully, you feel like you are part of the book. There are quite a few hot sex scenes that will make you feel all hot and bothered. Plus there is so much action going on, you will never for a second be bored. Oh and don’t forget the supernatural creatures of all kinds! This book has it all and will definitely please you in all ways possible!
The Final Calling is book 5 in The Crucible Book series by Angela Colsin. This paranormal romance follows Edith and Isaac. Edith is finalizing her journey in which she becomes an enchantress. She finds herself teaming up with the most unlikely person, a demon, that promises to keep her safe and gather all that she needs to complete her staff. Edith has to watch her back at every step for tyrants and assassins because if she is not careful she will find herself victim of her death mark. Her helper, Isaac, has been on the run for years after he is found guilty for murdering his family. Isaac runs across the opportunity to help Edith on her journey, but he quickly finds out there is so much more than what meets the eye. He realizes that Edith is his mate and he will do anything to help her and keep her safe, regardless of how troublesome this journey becomes. Helping Edith to her final journey of becoming a Mage is the only way that Isaac can continue to pursue her. This story takes us through an amazing action packed storyline of two people who are meant to be together but have to overcome some major obstacles to end up together. The characters of Edith and Isaac are fantastic and the more they fight to be apart or together made me fall in love with the story that much more. Not only did this book give me my need for paranormal romances, but it also gave me my need for adventure and a scavenger hunt! While reading this novel I found myself just as attached to the sub-characters as I did the main ones. This is my first Angela Colsin book and I have to say that I was very impressed. I read The Final Calling without reading any of the other books in the series, but I did not get lost or find that I was not able to keep up with the storyline. The novel was packed full of a magical storyline filled with heartbreak, plot twists and in the end- finding the one who your heart is meant to be with. On a side note, can we talk about hot and steamy? Whew!
The Final Calling is the fifth book in the spellbinding series The Crucible, by Angela Colsin. It is an incredibly well written and exciting page-turner that is full of fantasy, action, adventure, drama, magic, mystical and mythical creatures- as well as travelling between fascinating realms. Ms. Colsin’s world building is truly sublime; her unique plot is entirely sexy, thrilling and quite mesmerising; the characters are fantastic (even the baddies) because Ms. Colsin has developed them beautifully with so much detail in not only their appearances, but also their complex personalities and backstories. I couldn’t help but feel a connection to Edith and Isaac, and therefore became completely invested in their incredible story. We met Edith Walsh in the third book of this series ‘Light of Dawn’ (Ulric and Charlotte’s story), as she is Charlotte’s best friend. Edith is a mortal who suffers from low self-esteem and a lot of self-doubt. This has kept her from finding her true path in life, her passion and a place she feels she belongs. In the third book Edith discovers a whole world she never could have imagined. A world that scares her- but the magical, mystical and dazzling discoveries leave her full of excited wonder. She found herself chosen to become an apprentice to a powerful sorceress named Chandra. She is taken into a magical realm to receive her training, where Edith finally feels like she has found her true calling and a place to belong which is her dream come true. This book sees Edith accepting her “Final Calling”, where she will be put to the ultimate test- she will need to undertake this to qualify as a fully-fledged enchantress. The Final Calling will require Edith to embark on an action-packed adventure to collect all the components required to forge a staff that will enable her to gain her full powers and obtain her immortality. But unbeknown to Edith there is a prophecy that has foretold of her being the one to bring about the demise of an evil tyrant who has caused much misery over many centuries. Because of the prophecy, Edith finds herself with a bounty on her head and assassins sent to eliminate her. She won’t be able to complete her ‘Final Calling’ without some help from her friends, some she has yet to meet and some who she is already familiar with. One person in particular who has offered his help doesn’t just intrigue her; he makes her yearn for the things she can’t afford to be distracted by. Isaac is a Perosian who is still paying the price for a situation that occurred centuries ago. He found himself stranded in the mortal realm where he has learned to adapt as best he can. He was also introduced to us in book three, as he is Ulric’s best friend. He has a part to play in the prophecy that Edith is unravelling. Isaac has an immediate and powerful connection to Edith and will do anything he can to assist her in her endeavours and to keep her safe. But with the complexities of Edith’s Final Calling that bring their own perils, as well as danger stalking their every move- can Edith complete her Calling and attain her powers and immortality? Or will her opponent prove to be far more formidable that she gave him credit for? Will Isaac be able to protect her? Will they get a chance to explore the bond that they have? What of the prophecy, what really will become of them? What does fate have in store for them? This is another spellbinding instalment in this really fantastic series. I love, love, love this series and I think this is the best book yet! I was so enthralled in the story that I couldn’t put it down and read the whole book in one sitting. This truly is a must-read that will enthral you from the first page until the last. I can’t wait for more from this talent author!
