Summary: A war is brewing—the first battle has been waged and Savannah Levine is left standing, albeit battered and bruised. She has rescued her half brother from supernatural medical testing, but he’s fighting to stay alive. The Supernatural Liberation Movement took him hostage, and they have a plan to expose the supernatural world to the unknowing.
Savannah has called upon her inner energy to summon spells with frightening strength, a strength she never knew she had, as she fights to keep her world from shattering. But it’s more than a matter of supernaturals against one another—both heaven and hell have entered the war; hellhounds, genetically modified werewolves, and all forces of good and evil have joined the fray.
Uniting Savannah with Adam, Paige, Lucas, Jaime, Hope, and other lost-but-not-forgotten characters in one epic battle, for a grand series finale.
This is the series that defined urban fantasy for me. It was my gateway in, quickly followed by The Hollows, the Shifters series, and even Sookie Stackhouse. This is the one that came first for me, and for that I will always love it the most.
I had no idea that the next book would be the last; when I found out, I was so bummed! But as much as I want the series to last forever, I still can’t wait to read the book.
