Annabelle has always been happy with her quiet, normal life. Like most people in Elderan, extreme poverty is all Annabelle has ever known. After humans seized power from the witches 100 years ago, Elderan collapsed along with the witches’ reign — but Annabelle has everything she needs in her boyfriend and parents.

Until one day she doesn’t.

When Annabelle’s parents are mysteriously murdered, she finds herself barely able to keep it together — and it only gets worse when a wolf shifter named Angelo arrives and explains to her that she’s not nearly as normal as she once thought.

Annabelle is a witch, the last of her kind, and it’s her destiny to help return Elderan to its former glory. But how can she focus on saving her entire country when she’s coming apart at the seams? How can she trust Angelo and his pack mates, Lio and Rhyion?

…and how can she keep herself from falling in love with them?

Annabelle doesn’t know who she has left to trust. After being captured by King Robert of Elderan, a brutal ruler who will stop at nothing to make sure witches never rule the country again, Annabelle has been cut off from everyone and everything — including her powers as a witch.

Until Angelo, a member of her shifter guard, arrives to save her.

When the attempt fails, Angelo’s left mortally wounded and the King is determined to make Annabelle pay. While Annabelle nurses Angelo back to health, the other members of her guard, Lio and Rhyion, devise a plan to overthrow King Robert — and Annabelle finds her feelings for all three members of her guard deepening as intensely as her desire to see King Robert fal.

Annabelle is a witch, the last of her kind, and it’s her destiny to return Elderan to its former glory. But how can she focus on saving her entire country when she’s worried about Angelo’s safety? How can she topple an abusive King when he is equally as powerful as her?

…and how can she stay focused as she’s falling even deeper in love with the men who protect her?

One woman, three men — and their desire to reclaim their kingdom.

Annabelle is so close and yet still so far from defeating King Robert. The closer she gets to finding the key to overthrowing him, the more complications seem to rise up. But she is determined to destroy him because if she doesn’t her home country of Elderan will rot in poverty and turmoil forever.

Up until this point, Annabelle has only been focused on one thing: destroying King Robert and saving her country of Elderan from his wrath. But now that she is actually close to defeating him, she has to learn more than magic.

One of the members of her royal guard, Rhyion, helps to teach Annabelle everything she needs to know about the government of Elderan. As Annabelle considers what kind of Queen she is going to be, she also has to consider that her feelings for Rhyion are growing. But she’s already in a relationship with the two other members of her guard, Angelo and Lio, is it greedy of her to want Rhyion too?

…and can she balance her love of the three of them with the responsibility of being Queen of Elderan?

This steamy reverse harem urban fantasy is the final book in the Annabelle’s Harem series! Readers will be absorbed in the action, adventure, and romance in the last book of the series.

Before beginning my review I quickly have to thank Rockstar Book Tour for allowing me to be a part of the blog tour for this series and for sending me the books to read.

I love looking in my emails daily to see what various blog tours are promoting. This is a great way to discover new books, authors and genres. As you can see my reading taste are all over the place and I love discovering new books in very different genres from what I normally read. Which I think is good because you get to taste a whole new world in books and personally for myself I find I always need a break from reading the same things over and over. I tend to feel like some books feel like deja vu so when I switch things up I get a whole new perspective.

Since this is a  three book series I won’t give a personally review for each one just because I know I will end up giving spoilers away.

These are a super quick and fast read. I managed to read all three of the books over a three day span.

Our main character is Annabelle. On the outside she looks like your typical girl who works as a waitress, lives with her long time boyfriend and trying to deal with the lose of her parents. Annabelle looks and feels (well almost since her parents death she is on medication to numb those feelings)  like everyone else but what she doesn’t know is that she is not like everyone else.

Annabelle lives in a world where magic is against the law and you could go to jail for life if your  caught using it. But, for Annabelle she has decided that she needs to find out how her parents died and will stop at nothing to find out why even if that means searching for someone who has magical powers to help her. She has sent aside money and is getting ready to go and get the answers when her boyfriend discovers her hidden stash. They fight and she takes off only to end up in this abandon house. What will Annabelle do when she realizes that there is actually more to her boyfriend then she realizes?

She thinks she is safe until someone comes in to try and kill her. Thankful someone comes in to save her and tells her to trust him. They manage to get away before anything else can happen. Annabelle soon realizes that things aren’t what they are suppose to be and discovers so much about who and what she is. Can she embrace who and what she really is?

As as each book progresses so does the story line giving you more insight into the world and the people. Everything moves along at just the right speed. Anna does a fantastic job and making it all seem seamless and believable. I loved how each book blends right into the next one.

When the third book wraps up  you get all the answers you have ever thought of while you were reading the book. It was nice to see that Annabelle was embracing her powers. It was nice to see everyone rally around her to help her through this since she had no clue or idea who she was because she was numbing herself.

This is definitely a series you need to read from book one.  I definitely want to read more by this author and within this genre.
