Publisher's Summary

The end is nigh for either humanity or the ascensionists. Who will be left to pick up the pieces?

Gödel has made her final move, and the future of Irth hangs in the balance. How far is Bethany Anne willing to go, to prevent Kurtherian victory?

If you don’t already know, then you haven’t been paying attention....

The Queen Bitch returns to the planet of her birth, and gathers the heroes who rose up to defend Irth in her absence. Meanwhile, the Federation is under attack from all sides.

While Bethany Anne’s rage scorches the Irth, Lance gets to experience the unity he always dreamed of, as the Federation factions unite. Long awaited family reunions must take place under the shadow of the final war.

Old faces and new faces come together to fight for what is theirs....and no one is immune from the consequences of war.

Don’t miss out on the universe-shattering conclusion to The Kurtherian Endgame series.

Watch out for spoilers in the reviews!!!!

Before I even read the book someone in these reviews aired their opinion about something in this book and then after said “Spoiler”! If you are a fan read first then look at reviews if you want.

Nice last story

Very sad that this is likely the last full length BA story. Nice to revisit many of the characters! The narrator did a good job.

I laughed, I cried and I screamed Hell Yeah

As the titles says, I was all over the place with this one. There were so many moments through out this book let alone the series that just had me cheering on Bethany Anne and the Bitches. This was a great way to wrap up the series for a while.

Finally Made It

I’ve listened to both series six or eight times. Not sure exactly. Audible is awesome! I can’t get enough of BA. I haven’t listened to the side books so there are annoying gaps. I plan to pick up a few during the next pass. I think I’d lose my mind trying to keep track of all of them. The best news I just heard is that the Queen Bitch may return. I can’t wait! Time once again for “Death Becomes Her”! Thanks Michael!

collection

I love these stories so much on Audible.
ever time I see a new one coming I figure out the time and start from Book one and listen to the newest even the books about Micheal Nocked coming back. I hope this is not the end of TQB but if it is, it was one heck of a ride and I know I'll relisten to them all again.

A fun conclusion!

I am impressed, he managed to write so many books and keep up the joy, and love of the characters! I know that I have spent many nights reading to long, supposed to sleep, etc...many of these books are page turners! Thank you to Michael Anderle!

still a lot of loose strings but I'm satisfied

several stories have popped up in the KU that were not acknowledged in this book. which I wanted to see those people. however, they may still show up in a collaboration of the magic side of the Ku just not in endgame... Maybe. I honestly miss Emily's take on the book and wanted her to say something about it finally ending as she read so much of it and created so many character voices throughout the years. I understand some things had to happen answer me the ending was bittersweet but promising. thank you Michael and Ali for giving me a story to get involved with in the last X amount of years! and here's hoping we have more!
