ARC Review of Golden by Melissa de la Cruz and Michael Johnston

Goodreads Summary:
In this epic conclusion to the trilogy, Nat and Wes go on a journey to find the Rift, save the source of magic and defeat the Drau, the pirates, and the RSA—but at a great sacrifice. Wes is dying, and as he's rotting the Drau will let the rot "cleanse" the source of magic, dooming Wes forever. Nat and Wes discover that the source of the magic lies in the Drakon—the key to the Blue, the protector, the soul of the world. But in order to close the Rift, a great sacrifice is needed. Nat must decide to sacrifice her beloved drakon in order to save the world, and to save Wes. In the words of the sylphs, death is life, and now the worlds can be reborn again. 

My Review:
Oh goodness, where to start. This book went in so many directions. I really enjoyed the finale of this series. Nat and Wes have had one heck of a journey so far. It only gets more intense in this book. They have a short amount of time to do it or the world as they know it will end. Wes is not doing well and Nat does not have her Drakon. Between them and their group of allies they must venture into a secret land in hopes to retrieve another drakon. They must rely on each other to make it through this. Sadly not everyone will survive. The war is coming at them head on. Will Nat be able to make the ultimate sacrifice to save her world?

I loved the secondary characters. Wes's group is still together and fighting for them. They are willing to die for each other. They understand the importance of their mission.

Nat and Wes's relationship really takes on a whole new life in this one. They finally realize how much they mean to each other. They truly love each other and rely on each other a lot. They can't make it without each other. They obviously don't have to much time for romance given the fact that a war is waging around them. They do have some sweet moments though. My heart did break for them a couple times given the situation. Nat had to grow a lot to try to accomplish what she needed too. Her willingness to sacrifice was beautiful. 

This book had so many twists and turns. I was on my edge the entire time. Right up until the end. It was a very interesting ending. One that I did not see coming at all. Now is the time to pick this series up if you haven't yet!
