Surrender by Lee Nichols

For Review: Bloomsbury
Published: 12 April 2012

From Goodreads: After a devastating battle at headquarters in New York, the ghostkeeping world is in shambles. When Emma and Bennett return home, they are determined to defeat the wraithmaster, Neos, forever. But it's not going to be easy. Bennett's parents kick him out when they realize he is still using drugs to enhance his powers. Emma is convinced her aunt has come back from the dead to warn her of a new threat. And worst of all, Neos is using wraiths to possess the students at Thatcher Academy. If the ghosts manage to take over the entire school, even Emma won't be strong enough to stop them. But if either she or Bennett sacrifice his or her powers, they might be able to save the ghostkeeping world once and for all-and break the "ghostkeepers lose their powers when they fall in love" curse. The question is: who will be the one to surrender all power?

Fast-paced and romantic, this conclusion to the Haunting Emma trilogy will thrill readers as it brings the ghostly mystery to a close.

I've really enjoyed reading Lee Nichols' Haunting Emma series and the final instalment is a brilliant conclusion to the saga.

The story picks up from where we left off in Betrayal. Neos is still a threat and gaining power, Bennett is using desperate means to gain the power he believes he will need to beat him. And, of course, there is still the problem of ghostkeepers losing their powers if two are together...

One of my favourite aspects of this story is the romance between Emma and Bennett so I really enjoyed this one. There were some really great scenes between the two. I'm also please that her friends played a larger part in the story, especially Natalie and Coby. I really liked Coby and his friendship with Sara and Harry.

I liked the showdown at the end too - and how it all turns out - and the way all the pieces fit together. The characters all really develop and become stronger over the course of the series so it's really nice seeing them get to this point.

I'm really excited to see what Lee Nichols writes next. Hopefully it will be as romantic, and action packed as this series!

I was gutted reading Betrayal because of what happened at the end...I couldn't bring myself to read this one sadly. Glad you enjoyed it though :)
