I loved this series! While I'll miss this world I'm grateful that she ended it before it got stale. The final battle for the salvation of the Blue Bloods involves all the various strands of the story. Mimi and Jack are pretending to return to Lucifer to betray him. Bliss is bringing in the hell hounds. And Oliver and Schuyler are searching for a answer having to do with her father. In the end, it will take all of them to protect heaven. While everything gets wrapped up tight, I wasn't unhappy with how things played out. A good end to a great series. ( )

It's been so long since I read the last book (after devouring the rest of the series in roughly 6 weeks), it was somewhat difficult to remember all the specifics of this particular vampire world. I do love how all of the main characters' stories wrapped up, the most surprising being Oliver and Finn. Good wrap up for the series. ( )

I have waited far too long to read this conclusion of the Blue Bloods series, so I was incredibly happy when I decided to pick up a copy at the library and just finish it. Everything starts coming together in this novel, and it’s mostly action from start to finish, which was a lot of fun. Mimi and Jack are acting as double agents, Bliss is working with the hellhounds to help fix the timeline, and Schuyler is finally figuring out what it means to be the key to the Gate of Promise.

I loved getting back into the swing of things and how everything is on a knife’s edge throughout pretty much the whole book. Who can be trusted? Is Kingsley on their side? Are Jack and Mimi really double agents? It’s a whole lot of suspicion and doubt and trying to fight the good fight, and I really liked that. Everyone’s preparing for an all-out war with Lucifer, and I liked how the shifting character perspectives shows how the war is shaping up as a whole and what each character’s part in it is. I LOVE that we get more Bliss time and that she’s really coming into herself as a hellhound and working to find her place within her pack.

While I enjoyed this book, however, there were two main problems with this book: the pacing and the ending. I expected it to be all action and let’s go get Lucifer, etc., but there were way too many side trips for this to have been a really satisfying ending. Schuyler randomly flies out to meet her paternal grandmother, who accepted her with very little question-asking and suspicion, and then meets a half-sister that does the same. It’s heartwarming and I’m glad Schuyler is finally looking into her father’s family, but that probably should have been put in an earlier book to give this last one the oompf I thought it was going to have. It seemed out of place and frivolous. Also, while I love happy endings, I wish this ending were just a little more on the dark side; they were fighting Lucifer, after all; I thought there should have been more personal, heart-wrenching devastation, but that’s more of a personal preference than an actual problem, I guess, so moving on. :p

This series as a whole is definitely one to check out. It provides an interesting perspective on the idea of vampires and history in general, with how they played a role in major events. It’s intriguing, but also has light, fluffy moments of romance and regular teen intrigue, which is a fun contrast. If you’re interested in vampires and angels, definitely give this series a try.

This book had my heart racing SO much! What an action packed adventure that kept me guessing the whole way through. I definitely want to read the Wolf spin off series now as well. I have to admit to being devastated through parts of this book, but to the reader who hasn't read it yet...keep going because in the end you will be pleased with how all the loose ends tie up. It might not have been what I was expecting, but it was GREAT! I'm so glad I picked up this series. ( )
