Author: J. Kowallis

Sisters will clash.
A staff, a sword.
The gates are thrown open.
Darkness sweeps through Taran’s consciousness. Hellia’s deathly apparition stole her sisters. She doesn’t know where they are, where to look, or if she’ll ever find them. While Taran’s powers are growing, so is her fear and anxiety. Answers elude her, and no one understands her terror. Not even Coll.
And time is running out.
Every second brings them closer and closer to nothing. And closer to the waning end of the hexen race.
Hexen’s Wane by J. Kowallis is the final instalment in the Hexen’s Cross trilogy and it sure has been a magical ride through fulfilling a prophecy, a binding that makes the couple more powerful and finally bringing down the villain once and for all. I honestly cannot believe that this series has finally come to an end and it was wrapped up really well.
It is satisfying to have followed their journey and finally reaching the end of Taran and Coll’s story through ups and downs. In this book, I was even treated with some romance as the story progresses and for this, I have nothing to complain about as I think it balances out with all the action.
The author really took the time to build up the story until the climax finally arrives which I was absolutely looking forward to. It was sad, heartbreaking and most importantly justice is served and all is right again for all the hexens. An ending I was already expecting it to turn out.
All in all, this was a great read and an overall amazing series to get sucked in. This is a book unlike any other I’ve read before and I would totally recommend you to pick up this trilogy.
