Review: Overtaken - K.F. Breene
For one brief moment when she lets down her guard, Shanti falls into enemy hands. But if Xandre thought she would be a docile prisoner, he was sadly mistaken.
With Shanti running interference, it is up to the boys she has trained, and the army Cayan leads, to fight their way to her side.
The fate of the land will finally be decided.
Which side will be overtaken?

I absolutely love the Warrior Chronicles series by K.F. Breene but I had the final book, Overtaken, sat on my kindle for months before I eventually got around to reading it because I just didn't want the series to be over. I've really grown to love Shanti, Cayan and the others so I wasn't ready to say goodbye to them and if I'm honest even now I'm hoping the author may decide to go back to this world in the future so we can see how everyone is getting on!
So this is it, the book we've all been waiting for and the showdown between Shanti and Xandre, everything the entire series has been building towards. So was it worth the wait? Thankfully I'd have to say yes it was. I love so many characters in these books and they all get the chance to shine here, it has all the snarky banter I was expecting, lots of action, lots of Shanti kicking butt, some really sweet moments between Shanti and Cayan and it has the happy ending I was hoping for. There isn't an epilogue in the story which I was initially disappointed by but then I realised the author has posted a free epilogue on her website and trust me if you enjoyed this series you won't want to miss that.
I'm going to miss this world and these characters but I guess that's the great thing about rereads, I can revisit them anytime I want to!
