Synopsis: Fate has bound them together--and torn them apart. Now Daire and Dace face one final fight that will seal their destiny forever.

Daire Santos is the last of the Soul Seekers, and the only thing standing between the Richters and the destruction of everyone she loves. With her grandmother gone and Cade back in Enchantment, Daire must finally step into her destiny and lead the fight against the Richters. But what if that means sacrificing the person she loves most?

Bound to the Richters by blood, Dace struggles against the darkness growing inside him that threatens to claim Daire too. Though Daire refuses to give up on him, the choice may not be hers. An epic battle is on the horizon and the end of the world looms near. With such insurmountable odds stacked against them, is their love really enough to conquer all?

My Review: Horizon is the final instalment in the Soul Seeker series and now it’s over I want more which isn’t what I was thinking when I first started to read the series.

The final instalment picks up a few months after Mystic and the tragic death of Daire’s grandmother Paloma at the hands of Cade Ritcher.

All Daire can think about is getting her revenge but Dace can only think of keeping the evil inside of him inside.

During this time all Daire seems to do is train and hone her inherited skills so that she can once and for all destroy Cade and Leandro.

During the six months the Ritchers have started to rebuild the Rabbit Hole night club.

Where Daire is dealing with her loss and her new role as the only seeker, Dace has to deal with the fact that he has evil in him who wants to come out and play but Dace wants to keep it locked inside so he doesn’t hurt the girl he loves. He wants to use this evil to take down his family before Daire gets the chance to.

Throughout the story you get the other character point of views such as Xotichl’s struggle with regaining her sight and her boyfriend Auden’s new found successful music career. We also get a look at Lita’s life living in Paloma’s house with her angel boyfriend Axel now he is no longer an angel.

Although this is the final instalment it ends on a cliff-hanger. Yes they kill all the Ritchers and manage to save Dace but then it just ends, no I won’t accept that, we need to see what happens now the upper, middle and lower worlds are safe from evil.

This final book does give the final showdown between good and evil and of course good wins.

I do believe that there should be another book just to tie up all the things at the end of Horizon. So we can see them all having the happy ever after that Daire saw but we didn’t get to experience.
