Title: Endure

Series: The Protector Series

Author: M.R. Merrick

Published: June 2013

Wrapped in darkness and woven with defeat, every action Chase has taken since being exiled from the Circle has been met with a devastating response. Now he’s been burdened with a quest that seems impossible, and he needs to evolve into something more, something greater than he ever thought he could be.
Armed with magic, friendship, and an unbreakable will, Chase must build an army and find a weapon capable of defeating the ultimate evil. But he knows that nothing great comes without sacrifice. Blessed by the very gods who have abandoned him and carrying the fate of all the worlds on his shoulders, Chase Williams is about find out just how much one man can endure.

My Review: I believe my exact words when I reviewed the first book in this series, Exiled, were “Whoa…I feel like I’ve just read the script for an action adventure movie”! And I have to tell you that those feelings never let up throughout the entire series. It’s bittersweet to see this series come to an end. On one hand, I feel like I’ve experienced so much with these characters and am lucky to have done so but, on the other, I’m going to miss them terribly! In fact, I already do!

This final installment provides the reader with the action, mystery and adventure they’ve come to expect from Mr. Merrick while providing those who want it (like me) with a bit of romance and even stronger friendships. Although it seems impossible, the characters continue to grow in this book. I’ve loved Chase all along but here he’s stronger, more determined and better able to face his foes. Rayna, who’s kicked-butt all along, gives us a peek into her softer side…although she doesn’t stay there long, there are wars to fight! I has happy to learn more about Tiki since I absolutely fell in love with him in the last book. And all the secondary characters had their time to shine as well and for that I am thankful (waves at Vincent and Grams).

I can’t possibly end this review without mentioning the author’s ability to paint pictures with words. In this book (actually, throughout the series) we hop from dimension to dimension with our characters as they live their adventure. These worlds are not just shared with us in words, they crafted so carefully that they almost leap off the page as clear, vivid images. I could see them, feel them, smell them…the true definition of being immersed in a book.

If I haven’t told you already, although I’m sure I have, go read this series. Go lose yourself in this adventure. Go fall in love with these characters. I did…and I’m sad to see it end!
