Conquer is the third book in the Control series. This description contains spoilers for those who have not read books one and two in the series, entitled Control and Conflict.
Private Investigator, Paige Stone’s world was shattered when she learned truths about her past. Following her discovery, Paige is forced into a situation where she needs to accept that, although a person can control their mind and body, the circumstances of their lives are far outside their grasp. As Paige struggles with coming to terms about events in her life, she is also put through the harrowing task of learning when to fight and when to let go.
Strong-willed and arrogant, Daemon Pierce agrees to help Paige on her hunt for Chris. As Daemon instructs her how to fight with both body and mind, he breaks down the final walls she has built around her heart.
Paige and Daemon’s emotional journey concludes as they learn the meaning of love and forgiveness, and ultimately…surrender.
Wow. That’s pretty much all that I have to say about this book. Just WOW. After reading the first two books in the series, Control and Conflict, when it comes to reading the last book in a series, you
are left with a lot of expectations. What you want to see happen in the book, because you know readers are the ones who chose how a story ends! (At least in my head.) This book surpassed any expectations that I may have had and ended up being extremely well written.
With everything that has happened in the prior two books, Paige just showed more and more strength than I ever thought possible. Even in this book, she showed what she was willing to do to protect her friends and keep them safe. Putting her own safety to the side. I was really impressed with her character in this book.
Daemon’s character showed a lot in this book. I enjoyed that we were able to get into his head during the course of this book. Having the split perspectives was done extremely well in this book,
and you could tell which character was talking during their time. That showed that M.S. has an amazing writing ability to where the characters stand out on their own without a lot of confusion. With
Paige being the way that she was, it was great to see Daemon being concerned about what she was going through and putting her through what all he did.
Of course we can’t forget David, who I have loved since the first book. We are graced with his presence in this book many times, and he was done just the right amount as well. He was serious when he needed to be, but he also brought the right amount of funny to the story when needed.
I completely enjoyed how M.S. worked out the plot line involving Chris. I think that that was done just the right way because it wasn’t just an ‘instant’ problem solved. I liked the fact that his part in the story did continue on throughout everything. Usually that bothers me, but I did like how Chris seemed to pop back into the story when you least expect it.
Overall, I am completely amazed with how this story ended up playing out. This series is a complete must read from me.
