Awesome series!!!

Good book other than the fact that it was a huge cliff hanger ending. very disappointed about that.

great book :D even if she didnt end up choosing, the ending lets you imagine what happens afterwards, and that way you can imagine anything you want. not the most satisfying ending for me, but still an awesome book

Um, hello people? why is everyone complaining that Dru didnt choose anyone? i saw that all over the goodreads site, and here. I thought it was obvious. she turns down christophe, and lets graves leave, and says mushy stuff etc. think about it.

Sad that this is the end. Especially because it feels like there could be another book once you finally find out a bit more of her past.

I loved graves, he was amazing. but I want her to end up with Christophe. I don't know why, I just liked him for her so much. must read this series!!!! amazing!

A great end to a great series. Through the whole series Dru stayed the same tough, witty, main character that I loved. Another action packed, well written novel by Lilith St. Crow to go with a perfect cast of well developed characters and an even more perfect ending. Of all the books I've read, I have to say this ending was one of my favorites, it was just perfect! And not too cliche like some other series endings where it is a flawless happily ever after type thing. An addictive read for sure. Recommended.

I loved this whole series, but despite the good ending, I still wish Dru would have chosen( if you know what I mean). Anyway, this is an awesome series and I would recommend it to anyone who has read the Vampire Adademy series.(If you haven't read V.A. but you have read this series, READ IT!!!;)

Dru has officially bloomed into being a Svotchka, and has (finally) developed all the power and the beauty that she seemed on the cusp of in the previous books.
Having just busted Graves out of Sergej's, They are both on the run with Ash and heading to the one place Dru ever felt safe so that they can all recoup and regroup before Sergej finds them. Which of course is sooner rather than later.

We get plenty of action leading up to and including when Dru finally has her showdown with Sergej and gets to avenge her mother, father and everyone/everything he's taken from her.
As for that triangle?
Graves and Dru finally get honest with each other and lay it all on the table with each other.
And we finally find out what's the whole story with Christophe.
But where this book was the lost in the slap-you-in-the-face lack-of-resolution at the end.
This book absolutely does not read like the final installment in a series. After I finished it I actually had to go back and reread the last few chapters to make sure I didnt miss anything, and my response was a loud "What the hell kind of ending is that?"
As a character, I am and have been pretty damn fond of Dru. She's handled everything that's been thrown at her with a maturity that belies her age, exhibited heart wrenching loyalty and a surprising lack of selfishness when it comes the people she cares about...until that last damn chapter.
For me it completely took away from that highly anticipated, wretchedly perfect, heartbreakingly awesome exchange two chapters earlier.
