Summary:

The gateways linking the great libraries of the world don’t require a library card, but they do harbor incredible dangers.
And it’s not your normal bump-in-the- night kind. The threats Gia Kearns faces are the kind with sharp teeth and knifelike claws. The kind that include an evil wizard hell-bent on taking her down.
Gia can end his devious plan, but only if she recovers seven keys hidden throughout the world’s most beautiful libraries. And then figures out exactly what to do with them.
The last thing she needs is a distraction in the form of falling in love. But when an impossible evil is unleashed, love might be the only thing left to help Gia save the world.

Review:
*The publisher provided this book in exchange for an honest review through NetGalley.*
In this book, Gia continues her mission to complete the tasks given to her by her ancestor and save the Mystik realm. She could have been just a normal teenager but she still has to deal with her identity crisis and save the world at the same time.
In her journey to retrieve all of the seven keys hidden in various libraries around the world Gia will learn who really are her friends and her foes, while also not being able to trust anybody. Her mission is truly dangerous and trusting her friends and family will put their lives in danger.
This is a beautiful conclusion to the series and I am able to say that I was not expecting the way it ended, it taught me a very good lesson (about what I rather not say so I won't spoil the surprise). You know that you are reading a truly great book when you literally cry and laugh out loud because you cannot possibly contain your emotions.
One of my favourite aspects of this book was Gia trying to discover her identity: is she Gia Kearns. Gianna Bianchi or both? Identity is something that can be used as a tool for much character development and, looking back, that has always been one of the most positive aspects of this book series. The author is able to take identity issues from everyday life and put them not only in the main characters plot parts but also in the secondary characters one. That is part of the beautiful intricacy of the overall story.
I can conclude by stating that this is an amazing story and that I am very happy with this ending, I cannot see what this author writes next.
