After a daring escape from the angels, Penryn and Raffe are on the run. They’re both desperate to find a doctor who can reverse the twisted changes inflicted by the angels on Raffe and Penryn’s sister. As they set off in search of answers, a startling revelation about Raffe’s past unleashes dark forces that threaten them all.

When the angels release an apocalyptic nightmare onto humans, both sides are set on a path toward war. As unlikely alliances form and strategies shift, who will emerge victorious? Forced to pick sides in the fight for control of the earthly realm, Raffe and Penryn must choose: Their own kind, or each other?
Whyy oh why is this already over?! To be honest, I'm not quite ready to let this world and the characters go ... I'm sure I'll miss them so, so much! Since this is the last book of the series I won't go much into detail as of what happened but I can say that I highly enjoyed it!

Penryn is still a very, very likeable and badass character! We saw another side of her in this book where she's a little more ... girly. She's thinking about Raffe most of the time and the what if's but I kinda liked that! No character is badass all the time, so yeah. Plus, that meant we got more of Raffe! And heeeelll, did I like those scenes!!! *___*

"You accept me just the way I am, regardless of whether or not I even have wings. Even when I had my demon wings, you've never looked at me with pity. You've never wavered in your loyalty. That's who you are—my brave, loyal, lovable Daugther of Man."

It started off pretty epic and hot which was AWESOME. Their relationship is just great and I liked how slow everything was between them ... I mean, yes, it was frustrating as hell at times but I wouldn't want it any other way! There were some very sweet scenes, others were serious and emotional so it was everything I needed and wanted. I also liked the change in Raffe, that he finally "admitted" his feelings for Penryn ... or at least he didn't fight them that hard anymore. He's generally one gorgeous guy/angel. *sigh* He said so many cute things in this book ... it was fantastic! 

"If I were human, I'd plow the nicest farm for you." He sounds completely sincere. "Better than anyone else's. It would have golden pineapples, the juciest grapes, and the most favorful radishes in the entire world."

There was lots of action and no dull moments, if I remember correctly. In fact it was really thrilling, exciting and even horrifying. The writing was great, as usual. Very easy to read and still detailed - I can even imagine this to be a movie! How awesome would that be?!

Overall, I can only say that this series is definitely worth reading! If not for the completely crazy and apocalyptic world, then definitely for all those brilliant characters! I'm not kidding! They're amazing and I love them all so, so much! Please read this series, if you haven't done it yet!

  1. I just finished this one recently too!! I think I reviewed it last week? I did feel like it was really slow, but I did ultimately enjoy it. I think a lot of my problem with it was that the ending seemed really rushed and that probably had to do with the fact that it was supposed to be a five book series, but was crammed into three. I agree with what you've said about their relationship though! I love Penryn and Raffe! :D Great review!

    1. I'll definitely check out your review then! Why did they even cut it to 3 books? I have no idea! I think it would've been cool to read 2 more books about Raffe & Penryn ... oh well. But I'm glad you enjoy it too! I'd recommend the series, even if the ending is a bit rushed - the characters are great and ugh, I loved it a lot! :D
