SPOILER ALERTThe first 3 books were really good and created a great set up for an intense ending...but I felt like this final book left me wanting. Her relationship with the real Ben never fully develops and after spending 1 whole book with the 3 other men it's hard to actually root for real-Ben. I wish more time had been spent on that relationship and had more suspense involved with how it would end.

This is not a stand alone book you do need to read from the very beginning of the series to know what is going on. That being said this is a fantastic read one that has the reader anticipating the next page.

Good Read

Wow is all I have to say! Well ok, I'll explain~ this is the last of the trials series and by far the best! In this book, Leslie has to choose the one to love, the one to lead and the one to exhile. There are so many surprises and unexpected twists in this story that I am left smiling and crying all at the same time. Such a good ending! I love your imagination Lizzy! I am a huge fan!

Great read

Mystery, action, hot men and a kick butt heroine, what more can you ask for. Big twist you don't see coming also. Would love to see some follow up books on the other characters.

Trial by Heart is the fourth and final book of this four part series and holy mother of plot twists. I must say that I had many, many ideas as to what was going to happen to our heroine and what our lovely gentleman were up to; but I was not expecting what actually happened. If you've read this far, you'll definitely want to give this last book a chance. It doesn't have any sexual encounters and is more centered on our heroine: dealing with the curse and final trial.Overall, I'd give the series a four-star rating as the mystery was intriguing enough to keep me wondering what would happen next. I do continue to believe that her writing style needs a bit more improvement (and maybe a thesaurus); however, it did not keep me from enjoying the story.

Like WHAT?

Trial by Heart is the final installment in the Trial Series.In this last book, we watch as Leslie is forced in choosing her mate, the leader of he clans, and who will be exiled.There were shocking twists and turns that I never expected in this last book. One in particular threw me through a loop! Like WHAT?!?!! I wish I could tell you, but alas I cannot, because I don't want to ruin a big wambo jambo. But suffice it to say, I was utterly surprised!I love all the main characters. All the men were wonderful and helpful in so many different ways. Each one carried their own type of relationship with Leslie, and each were good for her in their own right.Which is why some of this book was hard to read. I was heartbroken like Leslie. Utterly.Some of truths she learns.The lies told to her.What had to be given up in order for her to become the Kingmaker she wanted to be and the clans needed to be...While the first three books were journeys Leslie needed to take, an enjoyable wild ride, the final book is where you get all the answers you've been dying for.Who will Leslie choose to run the supernatural community?Who will be Leslie's mate?Who will be exiled?What were the lies?Will Leslie be able to break the curse?
