Tell Me About It
Kit's job description includes solving crimes - the supernatural kind . . .

Glow, a fae-created drug, is rapidly going viral and the suppliers have to be shut down. Teaming up with Aiden and Dante, Kit follows leads across London, tracking down dealers. They stir up trouble, making themselves a target for the gang they're trying to stop.

In the Otherwhere, Thorn stumbles across a secret that could destroy both the human and Fae worlds. The Veil that separates our human world from the fae realms is weakening and the goddess is dying. And if she dies and the Veil fails, madness and chaos will wreak unstoppable havoc upon both lands.

Thorn turns to the only person he knows who'll be able to help him: Kit. Torn between working the Glow case and her loyalty for the young prince, Kit is propelled headlong into a world of danger. She faces enemies from both the Otherwhere and our world. And as the stakes are raised, the consequence of failure for both Kit and Thorn, and two realms, could be devastating.
My Thoughts
Ever since I finished reading Vowed, I knew I had to read the final installment in this series. I needed to know how it would all end, and what would happen between Kit and Thorn, so when I found out the publication date for Judged I sent my request in, and waited not so patiently for the book to arrive.

Judged picks up after the events of the previous books, Thorn is stuck in Otherwhere, leaving Kit, Dante, and Aiden to try and find out where Glow is coming from, and to find the reason behind the unusually cold weather the UK is having. Glow is a problem that just keeps on getting worse, this faerie drug is becoming more prominent and more dangerous, and Kit and her friends must follow the clues and find out how is responsible.

Reading Judged, you would be mistaken into thinking Kit was not human, and although Kit does mention it, I did honestly forget that tiny bit of detail. With her magic and her ability to seriously kick some ass, she just comes across as being so much more than human, and in reality, she IS human, with the ability to wield magic. With Dante and Aiden in tow, this trio really know how to get what they want, and they use any means necessary in order to achieve thier goal. This trio are not only an amazing fighting team, but also best of friends, and I like how relaxed they are with each other, and the unashamed flirting certainly lightened up the mood.

I fell head first into this magical world that Liz has created, from Fae, Werewolves, to Deities, and I really did not want it to end. But Judged is a book that takes us on an adventure of epic proportions, and even though the end came, it was a truly spectacular show of magic.

Final Verdict
Judged is a great end to this series, taking us full circle and back to the beginning again. I really enjoyed this book, and the ending was worth all the pain.
