The Offering Blog Tour Review + Giveaway

Offering Tour


The Offering
Published: January 31st, 2013
Genres: YA, Dystopian, Fantasy
True love—and world war—is at stake in the conclusion to The Pledge trilogy, a dark and romantic blend of dystopia and fantasy.

Charlie, otherwise known as Queen Charlaina of Ludania, has become comfortable as a leader and a ruler. She’s done admirable work to restore Ludania’s broken communications systems with other Queendoms, and she’s mastered the art of ignoring Sabara, the evil former queen whose Essence is alive within Charlie. Or so she thinks.

When the negotiation of a peace agreement with the Queendom of Astonia goes awry, Charlie receives a brutal message that threatens Ludania, and it seems her only option is to sacrifice herself in exchange for Ludanian freedom.

But things aren’t always as they seem. Charlie is walking into a trap—one set by Sabara, who is determined to reclaim the Queendoms at any cost.

 Praise for The Offering 

“This was a truly epic ending to the series.” –Crystal Perkins, Goodreads Review

“The final book in Kimberly Derting’s Pledge trilogy is a thrilling conclusion. I was immediately swept up into it and powered right through. It was pretty much what I wanted with a few surprises along the way.” –Krys at Bibliopunkk Reads

 Another amazing hit for The Pledge Series! This book has been a long time coming since reading and loving the first 2 books in this series.

I love the magical blend of fantasy and dystopian in this series. I have to admit, when I first started this series I was a little skeptical. It was hard to imagine fantasy and dystopian in the same book.But some how Kimberly Derting pulled it off plus some! She did a spectacular job with this whole entire series, and it has easily become one of my fave's!


Queen Charlaina of Ludania, other wise known as Charlie, thought she'd been through it all. She was wrong! As war wages against her county that she has sworn to protect, Charlie must face many hard choices that could either save Ludania, or destroy them.

When a threatening proposition is delivered, Charlie will make her hardest choice yet. To restore peace and ensure a successful future to Ludania, she must sacrifice herself to end this once and for all. But what Charlie doesn't know is that she's really walking into a trap, and if she isn't careful, she could seal the fate of Ludania, and all she worked for will be lost!

Will Charlie be able to save Ludania and her people? Will she be able to rid herself of the evil curse of Sabara's Essence? But most important, will
Charlie be able to save herself before all is lost? Watch it all unfold in the heart-pounding final installment of The Pledge series!
 This was a magical ride of ups and downs that couldn't get any better! Well, their was one thing I would of wished more of. Maxxxxx, I wanted more of him! I would of love to have more Charlie and Max time! Especially with this being the last book! But I understand that they both have to fight their own battles! I just wanted a couple more swoony love scenes with them! But it was still great has it is.

Overall, this series was great, and well worth the time I invested. I enjoyed the fresh take and originality this series took. I will find myself reading this series for many years to come!

Thank you to the host and the publisher for providing me with a ARC for reviewing purpose for the tour. All opinions expressed are my own and are not influence in anyway.

  1. thank you for hosting :)

  2. Kimberly Derting is one of those authors that can do no wrong in my eyes. I love The Body Finder series, and I adore this one, too. I am seriously looking forward to this final book in the series. I am so happy to know it is as great as the first two. Thank you so much for your review!

  3. I know I am commenting again, but I had to come back and say that this book was a phenomenal ending to a truly great series. I was blown away at the growth of every single one of these characters. And it ended perfectly. I can't wait to read her next 50 books!
