The Wondrous and the Wicked by Page Morgan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Summary from GoodReads
For fans of Lauren Kate's Fallen series comes the exciting conclusion to the trilogy that includes The Beautiful and the Cursed and The Lovely and the Lost. The Waverly sisters must save themselves before all is lost.
Since the Waverlys arrived in Paris, the streets have grown more fearsome by the day. As Ingrid learns to master her lectrux gift, she must watch Axia's power grow strong enough to extend beyond her Underneath hive. By all indications, the fallen angel's Harvest is near-and the timing couldn't be worse.
Targeted by vengeful gargoyles, Gabby has been exiled to London for her own protection. Meanwhile, the gargoyle castes are in disarray, divided between those who want Luc to lead them and those who resent him and his fondness for humans. The Alliance is crumbling from the inside as well, its members turning against one another, and possibly against the Waverlys, too.
Axia has promised that the world will burn. And now, unable to trust the Alliance, separated from Luc, Gabby, and her twin, Grayson, Ingrid is left to face the demon uprising alone.

Gargoyles! They were the top haitus of the year! Not only with Jennifer Armetrout's final book of the "Dark Elements" series but with the final novel of the "Dispossessed" series!
After the events of the second book, Ingrid and her family are in danger not only by Axia, the evil angel who wants to destroy everyone, but also from the gargoyles of Paris who want her sister, Gabby dead. Luc is the only one who can stop them but only if he takes the role of the elder.
On the other hand the Hunters will try to help in every way they can but that isn't always good for Inrid and her friends.
Through many third POVs we get a full idea of how the story moves without getting lost. It's a challenging tactic which I highly recommend to the readers. But the main center of the book was how all the relationships progressed. I will not spoil you, there are tears and some unfair endings (to my opinion) but the surprise is Luc and Ingrid. I loved every scene of them, every shared dialogue and thought! Add the historical setting in the beginning of 20th centur and you have a marvelous ending which will be remembered!
Loved every part of it and certainly I will read anything the author decides to write next!
About the author:
I'm the author of the YA Gothic thriller THE BEAUTIFUL & THE CURSED, its sequel THE LOVELY & THE LOST, and the upcoming THE WONDROUS & THE WICKED. I've been intrigued by les grotesques ever since I came across an old, black-and-white photograph of a Notre Dame gargoyle keeping watch over the city of Paris. I wanted to tell that gargoyle's story. Soon, the idea for The Dispossessed series was born.
I live in New England with my husband and our three daughters, an English Pointer puppy, an arrogant cat, two cuddly bearded dragons, a bunch of chickens, and during the summer and fall, our neighbor's two sweet horses.
