Summary(from Goodreads):

He was the right one, the chosen one, but was he meant for her? The end of the world. The day of reckoning. The final battle. In the last chapter of the My Merlin Series, it is a time of great strife for Arriane (aka Ryan) and Merlin (aka Matt) as they struggle to stem the flood of destruction unleashed upon the world. Their only hope rests in the one object that can restore their greatest ally: the Healing Cup.
 With every scrap of life hanging in the balance, Ryan must convince both friends and enemies that the key to survival rests in the plans of a sword-toting girl of only eighteen. She must reconcile a fifteen-hundred-year rivalry between two brothers, and be ruthless enough to break a heart—and a life—in the process. And at some point, she really needs to get herself to Prom.

I love the My Merlin series so much! It is one of my favorite series based on a legend that I have ever read. The world that Priya Ardis creates is incredible. Fans of King Arthur and Merlin need to read this series. 
Matt and Vane. This whole book boiled down to that one choice. And what a choice it was! I didn’t even know what I really wanted, but still Ever My Merlin was right on point the whole time. Ryan’s struggle was like reading my thoughts the whole way. It was such a good journey for her to go on. Like an epic adventure. I didn’t really know who to believe all the time, but that was part of the fun. Who was telling the truth? Who was really bad? Was anyone bad? Were they both bad? I am not kidding- all of those questions and theories passed through my mind at one point or another while reading the final book in the My Merlin series. 
I knew what I wanted to happen guy wise, but I am not going to tell you what that is. Instead I am going to tell you one thing I love and I thing I hate about both guys. 
Matt- I love how good he was. It really did seem like he wants to save everyone all the time. But I couldn’t stand how he would never make a move concerning Ryan. I know he cares about her. I just really wanted him to do something a little more a bunch of times in the books. 
Vane- I love how you can tell he really does care so much about Ryan, and seeing glimpses of his true self when she is around. But I can’t stand how arrogant he is. He holds is cards so close that no one can tell what is really going on with him half of the time.
Ever my Merlin and the My Merlin series in general is one that I whole heartedly recommend for fans of legends, mythology, magic and fantasy. I love the story that Priya told. The writing is magical and the attention is detail is incredible. She created a pretty awesome and expansive universe. The ending of the book was so intense too! I loved it.  
5/5 Gavels

Author Bio:
Priya Ardis loves books of all kinds—but especially the gooey ones that make your nose leak and let your latte go cold. She started her first book at sixteen, writing in notebooks on long train rides during a hot summer vacation in India. Her favorite Arthurian piece is the poem The Lady of Shalott by Lord Alfred Tennyson. A hopeless romantic, she’s a longtime member of the Romance Writer’s of America. When not living in her characters’ world, she might be found at the local coffee shop—her nose buried in a book.

    Hello, everyone!

    Thanks for taking the time to chime in.

    Michelle, thanks again for being so awesome and hosting My Merlin from the beginning. I can’t believe the final book is out & I’m so excited to share it. I’m doing a happy dance because you liked it! It’s hard to talk about this one without spoilers. You did nail the characters, though 🙂
