Note: While this review will be spoiler free it will reference previous books. If you haven’t started this series yet, check out VBC’s review of book 1, Getting Wilde.

The war on magic that has been looming on the horizon is finally here. Sara learns that the gods trying to pierce the veil is only one wave of the battle to come. To survive, the heads of the four Houses, the Connecteds, and the Council will all have to work together. But what if all the preparation still isn’t enough? Sara will have to reconcile everything she learned from the past with what needs to be done to ensure a future.

With Wilde Fire Jenn Stark ties Sara Wilde’s journey into a successful conclusion of this story arc. As with most endings, there’s a lot of importance placed on what came before, but each of these instances further feeds into the decision Sara needs to make about her future, what path she needs to follow next.

It’s almost difficult to review Wilde Fire because while it’s definitely an ending it’s not the end. Instead, it’s a book that leads readers into the Sara’s next journey. By the start of Wilde Fire Sara has embraced and grown exponentially in her powers. She wields them like a pro. She also acts as the head of the House of Swords with confidence. And she still fights the good fight as a champion for the Connecteds and she does so with an open heart. Sara has built up these qualities within herself throughout these ten books, and I loved finally seeing all the different aspects of Sara merge and fit together. I’m excited to see how this all translates for what’s to come.

The same can be said for the relationship between Sara and The Magician. I really loved seeing this relationship grow and, especially with the last two books, I loved the acknowledgement of their feelings. The books have been pretty much a series of chaos with Sara jumping from one conflict to the next, so I’ve come to appreciate any of the sparse moments of quiet and Wilde Fire has a really lovely moment between Sara and The Magician which makes me hope we’ll get more moments like this in future books. I want to see the mundane as much as I want to see the exciting.

The Immortal Vegas series has been fun and it’s definitely a favorite of mine. Ten books in and one story arc complete, it would make for an excellent binge read. If you’ve been wondering why I’ve been talking about Wilde Fire not actually being the end, it’s because it’s not. There will be more stories told in this magical world (yay!). How and if Sara will appear in them will have to remain a mystery for now. Suffice it to say: Things are about to get very interesting.
