The Wicked Within (Gods and Monsters, #3) by Kelly Keaton

The Wicked Within (Gods & Monsters, #3)
Ancient lore leads to present danger in the final book in the dark and sexy paranormal romance trilogy about a descendent of Medusa, set in a richly reimagined New Orleans.

Her fate is not set in stone.

Having temporarily defeated Athena, Ari races to break the gorgon curse that has plagued the women in her family for centuries. Her one lead sends her on a quest for the Hands of Zeus, an ancient relic last seen in the charge of New 2’s ruling elite, the Novem. But if there is one thing that Athena desires as much as revenge, it’s the Hands of Zeus—and Athena always gets what she wants.

Before either can locate the Hands, the statue goes missing, and a trail of blood follows those who once protected the relic’s secrets. Ari knows that her city, her friends, Sebastian—her life—depend upon her finding the statue before Athena. And with rumors an ancient power is on the rise, that may not be her only concern…

Additional Comments:
I love this series and was sad to see an end. I loved Ari for being kickass and a smartass with a potty mouth yet she's kind, loving and concerned individual.
If you have noticed that the romance was NA, it isn't that it's not present. It is, but those weren't what you'd consider romance. They did snog, yes, but it's not enough for me to judge.
Sebastian, although a little too broody for my taste, had a put himself a place in my heart. He had relatable flaws and although he wouldn't be in this book as much as the first two installments, it's because he has his reasons.
The secondary characters were also hilarious and chemistry worked well between them (um what?).
It'd be sad to say farewell to this trilogy.

Overall Rating: 4.5/5
