EmilyAnne284 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful ConclusionJanuary 17, 2017EmilyAnne28Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Forever Doon is the fourth book in the Doon series by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon. As such, I dont suggest reading this review until after you have read the previous books in the series because it contains spoilers.
The zombie fungus is back, and it is worse than ever. Half the Doonians get stuck in the modern world, including Kenna and Duncan; Jamie has reportedly been executed by the witch, who has taken over the castle; and Vee and her followers are gathering an army deep in the forest. Heartache and chaos abound.
Forever Doon is a wonderful conclusion to the Doon series. It ties all of the loose ends together in a spectacularly beautiful ending. At the end of book three or the beginning of this one, Jamie was executed, but something went wrong and he survived, unbeknownst to his friends. It was difficult to see Vee and Jamie suffer the way they did because of this, but their ultimately sweet reunion was worth it. I loved seeing both couples grow closer through all of their troubles, for they were better for it. Vee and Kenna also grew closer in a way one would not expect but that worked splendidly to the benefit of the novel. The ending was absolutely beautiful!
There were a couple of thing that did not make sense. Mainly, the callings from all over the world and the calling between Vee and Kenna. Those were miracles that had never happened before in the story world. They benefited the plot, but the calling between Veen and Kenna especially seemed as though it could have been a cop-out of the authors instead of finding a better to their solution. It was a cool idea, but it seemed almost forced.
Overall, I enjoyed Forever Doon as a great conclusion to the series. I would recommend the series (reading them in order, of course) to readers of YA romantic fantasy.
I received this book from NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

When I finished Forever Doon I texted my husband, "I finished Doon. I feel like I just lost my kingdom." So, yeah. I'm pretty much in love with this series. I'm suffering from sever book death now. (Book Death is a little know condition that refers to when you finish the last book of a series you completely adore.)
This story is... Breathtaking? Heart wrenching? Thought provoking? Funny? Intense? Swoony? Powerful? Checky, check, check. From the desperation in the beginning to the epic final battle to the bittersweet last page, you won't want to put down this spell-binding story. Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon weave in key details that continue throughout the series, and while the ending was perfect, it was written with losses, questions, and choices. And in my opinion, that is the mark of a mature writer, or in this case, writers. I held my breath, rejoiced, cried, and loved right along with Vee and Kenna! And I loved being able to read from Duncan and Jamie's perspectives, too!
You don't want to miss the stunning conclusion of the equally stunning Doon Series. Five Stars! If you haven't read the previous books, you may be a little lost if you read the last book. Normally it doesn't matter to me if you read a series out of order. Confession - I do it all the time. But seriously, why wouldn't you want to read the first three books? GO GET THEM! READ THEM ALL!
I received a copy of Forever Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon published by Blink from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest opinion, which I have given.
