Review: Her Dark Legion - Pippa DaCosta
Eledan’s nightmare has been unleashed upon the worlds and with Oberon gone, only the messenger crew stand in its way.
Kellee, Talen, Sirius, Sota, and Kesh. Together, they are stronger, but there are forces on Faerie who do not want the worlds saved, forces that would see the Messenger and her crew torn apart.
Queen to Faerie’s new king, Messenger and more to the saru, lover to some and a weapon to others, but who is Kesh Lasota really? A guiding light or an unwitting puppet?
Answers are coming.
The time for lies has passed.
And Kesh will soon learn some battles can’t be won alone.
The mind-blowing Messenger Chronicles comes to its explosive conclusion in Her Dark Legion.

It's really hard when you pick up the final book in a series you loved, you want it to end on a high note but at the same time you don't want to have to say goodbye to the characters you've come to love and that's exactly the problem I had when I picked up Her Dark Legion. This series has been absolutely fantastic from the very first book, Pippa DaCosta has thrown twist after twist at us, we've had incredible highs but also a few devastating lows along the way and now it's finally time to say goodbye to Kesh and her boys.
I really don't want to say too much about what happens in this story, if you've read the rest of the series you'll already know to expect the unexpected and that trend definitely continues here. The stakes are higher than ever and danger is coming from all angles so it's not going to be easy for Kesh to come out of this alive. Sacrifices will need to be made and they're all going to have to face impossible decisions with consequences they can't even begin to imagine.
One thing I will say is that I loved seeing Kesh spend time with each of the men in her life. I've grown very attached to Kellee, Talen, Sirius and even Sota over the series and it was good to see that they all have an important role to play in this final book. Even Eledan, a character I've loved to hate, has a few redeeming moments although I'd never go so far as calling him a nice guy.
I hate that this series is over but I'm glad things ended the way they did, I know I'll return to these books again and again in the future and I'm equally as excited to see what Pippa will come up with next!
