From Goodreads:
Aislin Ferry and Jason Moros have only days until they will be called to account before the Keepers of the Afterlife. Yet as they race to restore order and make their case, their worlds fall into total disarray.

Mutiny within the fractured Ferry family threatens Aislin’s hold on power and role as Charon. Meanwhile, the fearsome Lord of the Kere has family trouble of his own. Someone is unraveling the fabric of fate, and Moros suspects one of his supernatural siblings is behind the terrible bid to unleash Chaos.

Now unlikely allies, Aislin and Moros each need the other to escape the wrath of the Keepers. As the stakes rise, it becomes clear that protecting their respective empires is not the endgame. With the fate of all humanity dangling by a thread, Aislin and Moros must surrender completely to one another if they are to fight their common enemy. And as time runs out, someone must make the ultimate sacrifice.

I really liked the combination of supernatural and dystopian, although I definitely had questions that weren't answered about the mythology and the world.

It's a fun series, filled with action, and this last book teams up two unlikely characters.  A lot of heat between Aislin, the cold, organized, and seemingly ruthless Charon, and Jason Moros (Death), who find themselves working together to keep order and prevent Chaos from rising and destroying the world.  I enjoyed them opening up to each other, especially Jason, who has been alone for over 2000 years. They don't trust each other, Moros can't touch Aislin without her feeling pain…it's a little tricky.

In this final book, we finally learn who has been stealing the souls of the Kere, who wants Chaos to take over, and we meet more characters, like the Keeper of Heaven and the Keeper of Hell.

I was wondering how all of this would be resolved and Sarah Fine does a great job of bringing it all together at the end, although as always, I wanted an epilogue to see how exactly it was going to work.  I'm greedy that way.

Definitely recommend this entertaining and sexy adult paranormal series.

  2. I'm so excited to read this when it comes out! It's definitely one of my favorite adult paranormal series. I really hope I love the romance.

  3. I will read this some day! I'll probably binge read it after this one comes out... I'm glad to see you enjoyed the conclusion!
