Blurb: The battle the pack have all been waiting for is now upon them. Their enemy advances closer as even the world around them falls to total annihilation.
Jesse and Micah try to grasp the severity of the situation while still keeping everyone safe, but soon learn that is not possible. Pulling on their love for one another in hopes that it will see them through, Micah and Jesse step out onto the field of battle, along with those they love, and hold onto their faith that Fate knew what she was doing when she chose them.
As the battle ensues, many surprises are revealed, but a world of heartbreak shatters their resolve. In the end, will they stand victorious or will Hades win and bring the world to its knees in darkness for eternity?
When all is said and done, when the battle is over and the smoke clears, only one remains standing, in a field of blood, but is it one on the side of good or evil?
Review: So much more than I’d expected, so much better and so much worse. And although the author stated that she’d cried her eyes out writing this book, I swore that I would not…and I failed. I was actually reading it on a plane and had to stop, compose myself, start reading, and stop again…repeat that over and over again. Ugh, it was so awful but so good at the same time. Brilliant ending to the paranormal war and much different than I’d ever imagined.
This was brutal to read in so many ways. Watching the devastation through Micah’s eyes just about killed me. We all knew that some of our favorites would not survive the paranormal war, but the complete decimation of the Angel Pack was not what I was expecting. If you have not read this book, please stop reading this review and pick up the book. One must experience this for themselves to get the full effect. The good and the bad.
But, as with all things paranormal, there is always a chance that things are not as they seem, or some God or other mythical creature with amazing powers, can turn things around. But for Micah, to live through this, and have to survive it alone, and forever have that memory in his head and his heart, just harsh man…way too harsh for an alpha who gave everything for his Jesse, for his family and friends, and for his pack. I know it ended on a positive note, but if Micah doesn’t end up with PTSD after all that he’d witnessed and experienced, I will be amazed.
I have no idea how the author can top this one, but I am willing to wait and find out.
Overall Impression: I loved it!
