In the finale book in the series, Anna and her father continue to recruit Nephilims so that when the final battle against the Dukes happens, they will be able to win.

The best part of the book is Kaiden and Anna’s relationship. Now that they are together, they are both happy and not making each other miserable. Their relationship certainly takes center stage in the book because it is what helps give Anna the strength to do what she needs to do and Kaiden the strength to stand up to his father.

We do get to see more of Jay in this story as he continues his relationship with Marna. I for one was happy because I liked his relationship with Anna in the first book and was sad that his character pretty much got cut out of the 2nd book.

Again, the story is a little slow to begin but when it picks up, it’s smooth sailing until the end. Though there were times that some scenes or problems were rushed and it would have been interesting to see these things play out. For example, the whole Ginger/Marna relationship. They have a fight in the story and it’s surprising that Ginger didn’t fight more because that is the person that I see her as.

The battle was a big battle between the good and the bad angels and the war of whether or not they will end up in Heaven or Hell. Usually with book series, there is this shocking moment in the story that changes things and has you go WTF. This book had a bit of a twist, but not one that took me by surprise.

This book certainly made up for the last book and ended the story in a nice way. The lack of casualties and that SHOCKING moment is what made me not like it so much. It’s a decent trilogy to read if you want a quick fun read.

Rating: B-
