From when a friend pushed me to read the first book in the series, I have been entranced and consumed by these books, I have laughed and cried along the way, but A Portrait of Pain is where I have laughed the hardest and cried the most, both happy and sad tears. This book gave me everything I wanted from the final and more that I didn't even know I needed. It wrapped it all up in a paint splattered, unicorn emblazoned, razor edged bow.
From the beginning I have been #TeamSilas all the way, but I've also always been a #TeamNoah (I'm so glad Jane cleared up something concerning regarding Noah in this book *phew*) and #TeamCabe fan too. Well in this book, Jane managed to also finally make me a #TeamMiro fan too with a super hot, still fanning myself, gas station scene. Seriously, that scene was just something else and I never knew that Miro could be like that, but wow am I so glad to have discovered more about him.
Seraph, who quite obviously is the main centre point of the story, has grown and developed so much through the series. She's never irritated me as so often main lead characters can. She's been an incredibly well written and complex character who has gone through a lot in her life, but she's pulled through it all and in this final book we see her becoming who she wants to be and making the choices that she feels is right. I may love the boys and be seriously goo goo over all four of them, but I feel that this is where I need to state that I am a #TeamSeraph fan for going through all that she has gone through, but still coming out the other side as a stronger person. She is an admirable main character and she is one of my top 5 female leads.
Jane Washington really has written a masterpiece here. I am so going to miss Seraph, Silas, Miro, Noah, Cabe, Poison, Clarin, Tariq, Jayden and even Charles. I'm going to miss the banter between Seraph and the guys. I'm going to miss Silas's gruffness. I'm going to miss Cabe's playfulness. I'm going to miss Noah's steadiness and good looks. I'm going to miss Miro's seriousness. I'm going to miss them all, but I'll be going back to re read this series over and over again. Thank you Jane Washington for creating such a great series and for giving it the perfect ending as I've loved all of it, but A Portrait of Pain is my favourite of them all.
It was amazing, fabulous, sensational. I'll stop there before Jane starts getting ideas above her station and thinks she's a good writer!!
The final book in this series was everything I wanted it to be. It cleared up all those little niggling doubts we had about Seraph and her guys and it was all tied up in a nice, neat little rainbow coloured bow.
Miro was just *sigh* adorable and so freaking hot in this one (he was always my favourite though). And as for Cabe and Noah. Phew! *fans self*.
Poison and Clarin were there usual snarky selves, I love them both and should have been her third pair, in my opinion, that would have been hilarious. Can you write that in Jane?
It left me feeling good, no slump, which is always a bonus! I would recommend to any of you who love a good RH book. It's marked as a YA/NA book and is slightly more detailed than the previous books in the series but not overly so.
A definite must read for those who are looking for a complete series. One that I will definitely be re-reading again and again.
Good show, Jane x
Disliked, well I wouldn't say there was anything I disliked, I just wanted to read more and more, it was/is so addictive.
The book hooked me from the beginning and would not let me go! The 4 books have all finished and it is still Holding on to me - absolutely brilliant writing by Jane Washington.
I would recommend this book YA ParNormal readers, readers of sci-fi and fantasy & romance or just anyone who likes a good story well told. JJS
There were some things I questions, like some of the contradiction scenes in this book in compare with the rest of the series but the way the entire story flowed? Beautiful.
I must say, the last chapter was a little disappointing but the epilogue? My heart melted. I only wish that this serious could continue.
Maybe a spin off series based off Seph's vision at the end? ;)
Now to find another Jane Washington series to attachment myself to... This will always be my favourite series, though. Always.

Danny, der Zwillingsbruder von Seraph, treibt sein böses Spiel bis zum Exzess weiter, ist durch nichts mehr aufzuhalten, die Toten häufen sich und die Menschen wenden sich gegen Seraph. Für die fünf verbundenen Liebenden ist es schwer, mit dem Tod der Mütter zurechtzukommen, die durch das Band mit Lord Weston ebenfalls ermordet wurden. Eine Zukunft, die ihnen ebenfalls bevorstehen könnte. Sie bereiten sich auf den finalen Kampf gegen Danny vor.
Alles in allem, eine tolle Serie, die sich bis zum Schluss steigert. Einziger Makel ist für mich, dass ich nicht wirklich sehe, wie ein 17-Jähriger eine solche Allmacht entwickeln kann, obwohl seine einzige Fähigkeit direkten Hautkontakt benötigt. Aber ich drücke mal ein Auge zu und geniesse den Lesestoff mit den schönen Covers trotzdem.
I'm now in a state of post APOP sadness. That book was incredible!
The series picks up a short while after the last book ended with Seph having given up position of Voda, the stalker's identity revealed, and dealing with the emotional aftermath of the grief her pairs have been going through. A portrait of pain follows Seph and her pairs (Silas, Miro, Cabe and Noah) in trying to defeat Danny and not get anyone hurt in the process.
I loved Seph, she seemed a lot stronger in this book in comparison to the others. She just seemed to have hit the wall in terms of immaturity and she was forced to grow up and grow up fast, given the decisions shes had to make. She is finally finding a balance between all of her pairs and has realized she wants a romantic relationship with all of them, not just one, and she loves them all in their own way. I'm definitely going to miss Seph as a character and i'm a little devastated i wont be reading anything new about her now that the series is finished.
The pairs, what can i say about them. They are honestly some of the best book boyfriends ever.
Silas; i do have to admit that Silas is probably my favorite from this series, hes just so intense and loves Seph so much, hes even tried to curb his sociopath side a little which was funny to see. Hes got such understated humor and he's absolutely perfect for Seph. Miro, i was a little mad at him at first for what he put the bond through with all his indecision, even after he admitted to himself that he was in love with Seph. When he did address his feelings, holy hell was that HOT! It was completely perfect for their interactions, and i loved from that point on wards he got more vocal about his possessiveness. His scene in the epilogue was amazing and totally hot! Cabe was a sweetheart as always, he honestly was the peacekeeper. He only wanted what was best for Seph, never pushed her and just wanted a piece of her for himself. He had no problems being honest about what he wanted to her and his brothers, and was always a voice of reason and humor. He was an absolute Gem of a book boyfriend. Noah definitely fought for his place in Seph's heart, he was fighting his own demons and was really struggling with finding his place. I'm so glad he got out of his own head and just focused on his bond with Seph, he was the silent and intense of the younger pair and he definitely brought his own unique personality into their bond.
I wish that we had seen more of the relationship between Seph and the Pairs after they had had sex, i think that would have been really interesting to see. But i'm not complaining at all, because this book was still perfection.
The side characters were interesting, but we didn't get to see much of them. I was really fascinated by Tariq and his relationship with Jack and the Sophie's, that was bizarre but interesting all in one. Poison and Clarin were also background characters, but i loved their relationship with Seph.
The last few chapters, equally broke my heart and made me cry of happiness. I just loved everything about this book, the writing, the characters, the plot. I just cant believe its over!!
There are still parts of the story that I would have liked more clarification on, but on the whole it is a good paranormal kind of tale.
Loved the entwining of the five lead characters, it made for interesting reading - even more interesting imagining. The secondary characters are fun.
While I would really give the overall series a 3.75 rating - 4 stars will do.
