Review: Garden of Dreams and Desire by Kristen Painter

Publication Date: 4/7/2015
Series: Crescent City #3
Rating: 5 Stars

Official Blurb:

Magic and mystery collide in this thrilling conclusion to the new urban fantasy series by House of Comarre author Kristen Painter. 

Tourists are disappearing at an alarming rate. While Augustine and his lieutenants attempt to find them, Harlow and the evil spirit possessing her remain Augustine's true focus. Freeing her from the spirit's grasp is all he can think about, especially with no real solution on the horizon.

Then he discovers the tourists are disappearing because the witches are stealing souls to cast a dangerous chaos spell. Before he can stop them, Harlow becomes their victim. Now he must race the clock to set her free and end the witches' machinations before the chaos spell strips every fae in New Orleans of their power and bring fae rule to an end.

With the release of this book, the Crescent City series has come to an end. I’m honestly not sure how I feel about this series ending. I’ll admit I stumbled across this series on netgalley and I have been a stalker ever since. Painter’s unique PNR tale has enthralled me with every book. Harlow and Augustine have become some of my favorite characters. After the cliffhanger in Book 2, I was a little nervous to start Garden Of Dreams and Desires because I honestly wasn’t sure how Painter would wrap up the story and how Harlow would ever be the same again.

I won’t be giving a detailed review for this book as I want to preserve some of the mystery and plot twists for new readers to this series. However, I will say that Kristen Painter has taken the Crescent City world to new heights with the final book. Harlow and Augustine’s story ends in such an epic way that will be left in complete shock that this the last book. I’m not ready to move on from these characters in the least bit. This book is filled with non-stop action packed with twist and turns that will leave you head spinning. If you’ve never had a chance to read this series then I suggest this move immediately onto your TBR pile. You won’t be disappointed!
