Madly & the Jackal (Madly #3) by M. Leighton

Goodreads Description:

How deep does love run? Deeper than the ocean? Deeper than memory? Deeper than magic?

Following their plan to save Atlas, Madly and Jackson return the spirit of Wolfhardt to his prison beneath the sea. But even the best laid plans couldn’t account for the surprises they find. This time, Lore aren’t their only challenges. 

Madly is special in ways no one could have guessed and dark forces seek to control her. They want her power, but first they must weaken her. They need her beaten. Vulnerable. Near death. And alone. But that task isn’t an easy one with Jackson at her side. The strongest of their kind, the only way to separate Jackson from Madly is to destroy his love for her, to erase it from his mind. And his heart. 

Is it possible to steal Jackson’s love from Madly? Or is their love the only truly unbreakable thing?

Mary's Review:

This is how I sum up this book......WHAT!? This book was crazy! (In a very good way)

M. Leighton gives us another twist by using the Jackal and Hyde tale while Madly tries to still save Atlas, her family, and her people.  Let's not forget her feelings for Jackson are still grow stronger and now there are more dark forces that are trying to drag her down.

In this part of the series I felt so bad for Madly.  As much as she leans on Jackson, she is really starting to feel the struggles of all that is happening around her.  The dark forces are really dragging her down.

The one part that I loved was a couple scenes between Jackson and Madly, but then their love fades (slightly).  Of course the one thing that M. Leighton is good at is leaving us on a cliffhanger!

It's hard to put into words how great this story/series is because I do not want to give away the full plot or have any spoilers.  TRUST ME, READ IT!

Now I have to wait until Book 4!
