Mafia clan leader Rosa Alcantara's life is falling apart: everyone she loves is dead and everything she's ever known about her family is a lie. Even so, Rosa and her boyfriend, rival leader Alessandro Carnevare, refuse to give up on their love for each other. On the run from their adversaries and searching for answers, Rosa and Alessandro begin to unravel the secret behind the conspiracy to keep them apart: an ancient prophecy that predicted the destruction of all Arcadia.

As the clock ticks down to their own destruction, it's a race against time for the young lovers as they evade murderers, track down clues, and avoid a showdown with the man who wants them dead.

The pair must find out the truth behind Arcadia once and for all—but will it be the key to unlocking their freedom and future together, or the final step in bringing them to their knees?

I’m always sad when series ends. And this one I’m sad to see go. I think the way the series progressed and the how it ended was good.

Plot: This plot follows what has been happening since the first book. The clan’s are gearing up and choosing sides for a war. People are betraying people and others are dying. I think this plot is full of excitement and really doesn’t stray the reader. If anything, the reader is captivated by all the fighting, the non-stop drama and SECRETS!

Family Secrets: Okay, this part I was the most excited about. I have read so much about Rose’s life that when things were FINALLY coming to light it was like,”OMG!” The author made it easy for the reader to piece together all the info and for me, it gave me a huge adrenaline rush.

Ending: The ending is great! It did go down a road I certainly didn’t expect but it didn’t push me away either. In fact, I felt more intrigued once things started to look clear. I like that it went back in history. The reader has a chance to travel the world and visit unique places and most importantly, go back to where it all started.

This is great ending to an awesome series. I have never read one like this series before and I’m honored that I and a chance to read it and enjoy it. Answering all my questions and ending brilliantly, Arcadia Falls is great!

I give it 4 BITES!


Happy Reading!


  1. I don’t know a whole lot about this series, but I agree that it’s always sad to see a good series end. But nice that you liked the ending – oftentimes I don’t like the last book in a series.

      Yeah, sometimes that happens to me too. Especially cause I’ve stuck with the book and gotten attached to the characters and I have high expectations about how it will end. Oh, run on sentence there! HAHA!

    My friend made me buy the first book but I still haven’t read it. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it though!
