  • SPOILERS!!!Ok, i liked it, but i didnt love it. It took too long for me, and then the action was actually cut really short. I also couldnt get into Jenn and Antonio, maybe i just need to re-read the other two books but i feel like there was NO development in thier relationship. I mean WHY are they so in lovei didnt get it. I felt like a book was missing where we got to see their love bloom, or that maybe they would start to spend more time together, but there was nothing, in the entire series th [...]


  • This book honestly sets you through the ringer. First you've got the team still grieving for Eriko, then you have Skye missing with her psycho ex, then Antonio is still a little evil, Holgar is being hunted by multiple packs and also Jenn's father is back in the picture. Dum dum durrrrh. Since the majority of this book is spoiler central the rest of this review will be spoiler locked.(view spoiler)[So really the only part that is screaming at me to write about is the ending. Honestly that will s [...]


  • Spoiler Alert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOODNESS. This was the best ending to a trilogy!!!!!! There were so many surprises. I will admit I never though that Antonio would give in to his baser urges and actually bite Jen. Nor did I think that Jamie would confess his love for Skye. In character development I'm very proud of Skye. I thought that girl was never going to come to terms with her feeling for Holger but true love did prevail. I will admit I did feel a bit bad for Jamie. First he lost Eri to d [...]


  • Detailed Review: * Start of the book, I was completely hooked! The book is split off with Team Salamanca and other characters from the bookOK ONE - It starts off with Skye, a White Witch who has been captured by her ex, Estefan who is a Dark Witch. She convinces him by using memories of Holgar, the Danish werewolf and her. And next thing you know, Estefan goes crazy He was totally jealous and Skye got away. Met her family, done that. But the saddest thing is that Skye's family threw her out! I m [...]


  • Okay, well I finally finished this trilogy and I do not know where to begin. Crusader was really good and had so much promise in it, that I was determined to read the other installments. Damned lower the star rating by a lot, it was simply a hot mess. Now, Vanquished. Vanquished was more than a hot mess, it was Judgement Day itself boiling in Hell's fire. Let me give you some examples (these examples are off the top of my head):1) When Holgar punched her in the face. Jenn woke up and was like, " [...]


  • OMFGGG!!!! THE ENDING!!! AMA-FUCKING-ZING!!!!!!HOLGAR & SKYE MARRIED!!!JENN & ANTONIO MARRIED!!! & ANTONIO IS HUMAN!!!JAMIE A PRIEST!?!?!? LMFAOOOOO OMFGGG WHAT A SHOCK!!NOAH DEAD TOO! & HEATHER, PSYCHOTIC BITCH!!! FATHER JUAN WAS ST. JOHN OF THE CROSS!!! FATHER JUAN ALIVE!!!!OMFG THE ENDING HAD SO MANY SURPRISES!!!!Book 1 - Morrigan: Estefan is torturing Skye - he'd kidnapped her at the end of Damned (Book 2) & she escapes, using images of her & Holgar kissing to shove E [...]


  • Genre* YA ParanormalRating: 3.5-4*Review*Vanquished, written by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie, is the final installment in the Crusade series. If you haven’t already read the first two books in the series called Crusade and Damned respectfully, I would encourage you to do so before attempting to dive into this book. The series is complex in its creation, and there are a bunch of separate storylines that won’t make much sense to you unless you know the particular characters and nuances invol [...]


  • This book made me cry. In fact, at times it ripped me to shreds. Beautifully written. And I am truly sad to see the trilogy end. I was very attached to the characters in this story. The journey I was taken on touched me deeply. And for a vampire novel, I am impressed.There was so much growing up done in these three books, for all of the characters. It was very inspiring. I was satisfied with the ending, though I wasn't sure if the last part was supposed to be humour or what. It actually just mad [...]


  • Such an amazing end a really great trilogy. Though I hate how the last page was kind of a cliff hanger. But I loved the series and I wish it were more popular. I know people are probably straying from these books because the vampire theme is getting old, but these are very well written and deserve more readers.




  • Each book kept getting better and better. This was a nicely wrapped up story. I wish there was a showdown with Lucifer fighting wise but overall I enjoyed the outcome.


  • Holder and Viguié did a great job wrapping up their epic crusade series! As always, this book was jammed pack with action!As this series went on, I found myself caring about the characters more and more. One of the things that I loved most about this series was how readers are able to see each one of the characters grow. We are able to see changes in ALL the characterscluding Jamie! Speaking of, he actually grew on me in this book! I found myself somewhat actually liking him!The only problem I [...]


  • It's been ages since I read the last book in Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie's Crusade trilogy, I read it as an ARC in 2011, so it's been a really long time! No matter, after a few bumps in the road I was able to get back on track with Vanquished.So much has happened to Jenn and her team that it's impossible to sum it all up now, even with my poor memory! This time around, Jenn is still hurting from Antonio's actions, he went to the "dark side" and was able to come back to himself, but there's a [...]


  • This was a thrill ride of a novel! I've always loved this series, and I finally got to finish the series! I was not disappointed with the finale in the least. It completely lived up to my expectations!The beginning of the book starts off so dark and hopeless. One of the team members of Team Salamanca is dead, another is missing, Antonio is fighting his blood lust, and Jenn is reeling from what happened to Antonio. The only member at all who seems to think they can recover from this and be triump [...]


  • Talk about rushing a whole book from start to endat said, I loved the ending. I don't know why exactly, but I did. It was a fitting end for Jenn and Antonio, though I was a little scared for a bit about what would happen to my favorite characters, especially after Eri left. And my goodness, poor Skye. She was always being tormented, wasn't she? Jamie's end was definitely unexpectedif not a bit ironic. I'm super happy that all of the characters had 'endings' but I still get the same feeling I dis [...]


  • This book was another case of hate that its over but loved the ending! This was an amazing end to a great trilogy. Want vampire books done well? Read the Crusade books. They will not disappoint. Unless you only like cutesy sparkly vampires. Then you might be disappointedis book picks up right where the last book left off. The Battle of Salamanca just ended and Skye is the prisoner of her dreaded ex. Antonio is trying (and failing) to come to terms with what he did while his humanity was taken aw [...]


  • I definitely loved the portion of the book where Jenn's grandmother tells Antonio off. He has been moaning and complaining about his lot for many pages. She puts him in his place not a moment too soon. I envy her this moment. Even Father Juan got on board and tried to pull him out of his self induced confinement. I have encountered many similar characters in my reading. I often wish I could smack a little 'so what' sense into them. Do something, anything just make a decision.Loved the ending or [...]


  • I enjoyed Vanquished the last in the Crusade Trilogy. Jenn is the new Hunter of the Salamancas after Eriko was killed in the last book. Antonio is still a Vampire and is battling the monster inside him more than ever and his love for Jenn. Father Juan has cast the runes hundreds of times and is certain that Jenn and Antonio can and will be together if Jenn can finally lead, let go of her anger and love completely. It is also up to Antonio to let go of the monster within, believe in himself and h [...]


  • IT'S NECESSARY FOR THIS TO BE IN ALL CAPS. I WAS ABSOLUTELY BLOWN AWAY BY THIS BOOK, AND THE SERIES AS A WHOLE. IT'S BECOME MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE TRILOGY, AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT ANYONE AND EVERYONE READS IT. THE MAIN THING THAT I LOVED ABOUT THIS BOOK WAS THE ENDING. IT WAS PERFECT, TERRIFYING, MADE ME CRY, BEAUTIFUL, AND EVERY POSITIVE ADJECTIVE EVER. I CRIED FOR FIVE MINUTES WHEN (view spoiler)[JENN WAS DYING. THEN FATHER JUAN SHOWED UP, ANTONIO NEARLY CONVERTED HER, HEATHER'S DAD KILLED H [...]


  • In some ways I liked this book best out of the trilogy - there's a fair amount of action, and it feels directed and not aimless, unlike the first two. Also, Jenn sucks a lot less. She comes into her role as a leader and is so less annoying. Still though, the plot overall was on the confusing side and seemed to leave a lot of things out. How did all the warriors manage to gather in Transylvania for the big battle? Given previous descriptions of travel, it would seem rather hard for people all ove [...]


  • After the battle at Salamanca in Damned, the hunters have scattered to the four winds. Countries all over the globe have surrendered to the vampires, but there is still a very strong resistance organization consisting of werewolves, priests, witches, humans, and even a vampire priest. Young lovers have been separated by distance, and some have been captured and tortured by the Cursed Ones (the vamps). While the hunters are plotting their attack, the vampires are cooking up a virus to release on [...]


  • Complete letdown of a series.All series long, we're told Jenn is oh so special because she's thinks as an individual and that will be key to defeating the vampires, but this never pans out. Jenn didn't do anything extra special that any of the others couldn't do in the ultimate battle.And of course there would be a HEA for Jenn and Antonio - a ridiculously contrived manner of achieving HEA to boot! [At least the authors didn't drag out the love triangle too long. And what a silly introduction TH [...]


  • I thought that this ended the series fairly well. I liked everything leading to the final battle. So much happened to these group of characters and they grew so much throughout the series. Defeating evil exes, finding love with an unexpected person, overcoming old hatred, and figuring out one's strengths. What happened with Jenn and Antonio near the end was kinda surprising to me. I found it to be different and interesting. I found the finally battle to be an epic one. I found myself to be at th [...]


  • I know that on the other books I did not comment on the book, it was just that I was super tired and did not want to do it right then and there. So to sum up the series, it was amazing! If you like mystical creatures like werewolves, vampires, witches, angels, ect I would read this series. Also if you like romance, mystery, and action/adventure. Now for Vanquished, I predicted some things and they came true, but how/when/why kind of caught me off guard. It made the story much more entertaining.A [...]


  • Brilliant end to a phenomenal series!! Loved it. The battle scenes were epic and all I can say is if you havent read this series you are missing out! Vanquished was an amazing ending to the Crusade series. I cried so much and my heart broke but it was worth it. The authors finished it perfectly. All the characters come into their own with one surprise (Jamie)and some losses. I loved how the book has so many different characters and things happening and the way they all come together in the end.I [...]


  • Wow that was a nailbiter! To be honest I wasn't really sure what was going to happen & I was on the edge of my seat most of the time. I was satisfied with that ending, even though there was a lot of pain & heartbreak to get there. Team Salamanca is pretty freaking strong & there were some interesting reveals along the way. That epilogue left me wondering though!Jenn & Antonio, as well as the other characters, had to go through a lot & it was kind of amazing to see them get pa [...]


  • I didn't expect the ending to come together like it did. Without giving anything away, I would say that this trilogy is easier described as one of those "better by the book" trilogies. Book one was decent enough that I wanted to know more. Book two held my attention and book three was the best of all. I'm still not crazy about the different things mashed together (magic and prayer done togetheraying to God and to other false things). I guess it just shows diversity. It's safe to say there is an [...]


  • I always liked this series and this last book tied it all up nicely. Everyone fully developed their talents and truly believed in themselves which is what was needed in the end against the vampires. We FINALLY get an answer as to how Jen and Antonio are meant to be, considering she's human and he's a vampire. Tons of action, betrayal you don't expect, and lots of love. Love of self, declarations of love between surprising people, and love conquers all. I also love the very very end. Poor Fr. Jua [...]


  • Epic!Nancy my diva *Great finishing to series!I wanted to cry, I wanted to jumpOH MY GODThere were many surprises and losses, but everything was brilliantly snapped by Nancy. The ending was amazing and beautiful.I will miss these characters.***** stars
