What can I say?

I can't believe I'm still crying! *sob.sob.sneeze.sob.again*

It's been 4 days since I finished the final installment of the Darkness Falls series and yet, I still can't get over it! *sob.sob* Reading the Darkness Falls series is by far the best action-packed Paranormal Romance I've read in 2012!!! Oh yes. It is breathtaking, magical, astounding, jaw-dropping, tear-jerking, heart-pounding, bone-breaking, hair-falling, book-throwing (READ.IT.NOW.AND.YOU'LL.KNOW.WHY). Oh, look at that. I run out of words to describe it!

Wilde's Meadow is the best book in the series! I hardly finished the book because of the twist at the near end, but I was deceived. It was stunningly a series of twists and it was GREAT! I can't stop crying when it ended because the book was well-thought of! Every detail has a meaning or symbol or story attached to it.

I'll definitely miss Arland. *please give me more tissue.sob.sob* He's the man any girl would want to have. I know that in God's perfect time, He will give the man for me and he will be better than Arland! *AMEN!* Anyway, sorry girls you can't have Arland. He's already to married to Katriona, who indubitably deserves him. :)

Speaking of Katriona, she's the best heroine that I've encountered! She endures anything. She sacrifices for the common good. She committed herself to the greater good. She loves her family. Oh, you'll love her!

Wilde's Meadow picks right up where Wilde's Army ended. Katriona and Arland are preparing to leave for the most awaited battle in Encardia: the battle to kill Dughbal. The preparations for the battle was epic! I didn't see it coming! Sorry, I can't explain what "it" is. You'll just have to read the book, but "it" involves portals, weird spells, and vomiting. Lots of vomiting. Anyway, I just thought that the roles of the creatures from the portals were not fully emphasized. I was also surprised that killing Dughbal was...that easy. You read it right: easy. I was expecting for something different. The deaths--oh yes, death with "s"--were heartbreaking. Why did they have to die? *sob.sob*

HOWEVER, don't you worry because it didn't make the book anything less than marvelous! In fact, the deaths were nothing but ASTOUNDING. The meaning behind their deaths were so perfectly knitted. I'm not sure, but it seems like an allegory. I mean, I believe the whole series is an allegory! An allegory of the sacrifice of Christ. Because of the sacrifice of someone, the curse was broken and they were given life that will never last. It was awesome, but I'm not sure if Krystal Wade meant it to be like that. :)

I don't know how to put my emotions into words. This book blew me completely. I'll have to read it again...and again...and again.

Thank you Krystal Wade for this awesome series! Thank you Curiosity Quills Press and NetGalley for my copy! :) You guys are awesome! :)

Major Lessons Learned

I learned a lot. A LOT. I can't just write it because it's too many. I'll just share the best lesson that I got from the story. I still believe it's an allegory of Christ's sacrifice. :)

1. Accept the gift and it will be yours.
I guess you're all wondering what gift I'm talking about, but it's a gift for everyone. A gift that was paid thousands of years ago by Jesus Christ who died on the cross. He gave His life to pay the price for our sins. Do you remember? I hope you can help me browse the Bible in Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Because of our sins, we are bound to die and to suffer eternally. However, there was someone who took the price at the Cross of Calvary. He was innocent, but He bore all our sins that we may receive the gift...the gift of salvation...the Gift of Life. Unfortunately, many have not yet received God's gift because they failed to acknowledge it. 
Wilde's Meadow reminded me of this truth. As soon as Katriona embraces who she really is, she accepts the gift given to her. 
The gift of salvation is right there in front of you. You just have to embrace who you are. Do you know who you are? :) You are "fearfully and wonderfully made..." (Psalm 139:14). You are created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:27). You are made to enjoy an eternal life (John 3:16). All you have to do is to confess your sins, believe and confess with your mouth with all your heart that Jesus is your Lord and Savior and you will receive the Gift of Salvation.

If you did this, CONGRATULATIONS! You are now a citizen of Heaven. Don't forget to take care of this gift. Don't throw it. Don't waste it. SHARE IT! :)
