Just as Harper Price starts coming to terms with her role as David Stark’s battle-ready Paladin, protector, and girlfriend—her world goes crazy all over again.
Overwhelmed by his Oracle powers, David flees Pine Grove and starts turning teenage girls into Paladins—and these young ladies seem to think that Harper is the enemy David needs protecting from.  Ordinarily, Harper would be able to fight off any Paladin who comes her way, but her powers have been dwindling since David left town…which means her life is on the line yet again.
Rating: 3/5

My Review:

This was my least favourite out of the trilogy. In the beginning the narrative felt very repetitive, almost like the author was continually trying to remind us what happened in the first two books. It's to be expected, but it was a little bit too much (At least that's what I found). The book was a very easy read though, and I liked the story, I just didn't love it like I loved the first two books.

I enjoyed the road trip between the girls as they went to find David. Blythe joining them to try and redeem herself was interesting. I love the female companionship in this book, it was to see these three girls work together towards a common goal. Also enjoyed going through Harper's conflict of what would happen when she found David. The final chapters with David and Harper were my favourite because I love them so much. The ending wasn't what I expected before I read this book, but it made sense and I'm okay with it. I'm not sure yet if I'm happy about it, but I'm upset with it if that makes sense.

Overall, I did like this series! I'm a big Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and I can see why people compared Harper to Buffy as they are similar in many ways. I loved that about the series and it's what drew me to it. I would recommend it as I personally did find it very interesting.

Have you read the Rebel Belle trilogy? What did you think of it?
