With her fiancé extraordinaire, a friend with a penchant for Velcro patches, a fallen angel, a gung-ho tactical barbie/nemesis, and a hungry hulk, Sloan must deliver her baby, rescue Adrianne Marx, and save the universe before summer starts! There are no second chances; it’s do or die. A pregnant woman with a hot temper and a quick wit is humanity’s last hope.
(I was given this Advance Reader Copy (ARC) in exchange for an honest review. Plus, spoiler-free.)
My favorite group of badasses is back for a final battle! It was a pleasure to revisit my favorite ex-publicist, ex-marine, and ex-cop in an all-out war for world peace. Everyone from The Soul Summoner to The Taken returned with their comedic brilliance in Elicia Hyder’s fifth paranormal contemporary.
Heartrending moments were raw and genuine, and I would’ve thrown my Kindle at the wall if I didn’t have to explain that to the insurance company, lol. The action scenes were visceral and intense; I felt included in the fight while chaos ensued. But the back-and-forth banter entwined in dialogue and monologue—that made this book (and the entire series) a success! Even though I knew all the characters, eL managed further character development and kept chapters flowing with nuances and novelty.
The last third of the book went at warp speed compared to the steady pace of the novel. Still, everything transitioned cohesively even with the fast unravel because the build-up met the resolution and exceeded my expectations. (In other words, the novel didn’t fall flat after breaching the climax.)
The Sacrifice is my favorite of the series! It was hilarious and heartbreaking and suspenseful and romantic. It had me unabashedly laughing out loud in public in every chapter and depleting my tissue box with swoon-worthy moments. This page-turner tested true friendship and love's limits while the clock wound down.

Would I read future books by this author: Yes.
This is book 5 in the series and with each book I feel Elicia has outdone herself. Well…she did it again! The Sacrifice is fast paced; I could not put it down. In true Elicia style, she had me laughing, crying (more like had to put the book down sobbing) and when I got to the last page, sad I had finished. This is a must read series (start with book 1 if this is your first) and I guarantee you will love it as much as I do!
I'm sorry to say I was disappointed by this novel.
So much time was spent on everyone everyone making Sloan eat and rest that the actual plot of the book suffered. We get it already...she loves grits and chocolate...how many times does the consuming of and drooling over said items need to be repeated??
Nothing happened most of the novel. It was pretty much wrapped up in one chapter. And if you're a fan reading a book with a definite conclusion,you're out of luck. Look elsewhere. I've read all of the books in the series and even though I've enjoyed them, by the end of the fourth book I was over the cliffhanger endings. And speaking of endings, don't expect a happy one.
