Schuyler Van Alen is running out of time. The Dark Prince of Hell is storming the Gates of Paradise, intent on winning the heavenly throne for good. This time he has his greatest angels by his side, Abbadon and Azrael—Jack and Mimi Force, as they are known in the Coven.

Or so he thinks. Even as Lucifer assigns Jack and Mimi the tasks of killing their true loves, the Force twins secretly vow to defeat the Dark Prince once and for all. But how far will Mimi and Jack go to conceal their real loyalties?

Meanwhile, former vampire Bliss Llewellyn has joined forces with Lawson, the greatest wolf of the underworld, to free his people from their imprisonment in Hell. As they struggle against impossible odds, an ancient message, woven into the very fabric of time, reveals just how much depends on the success of their mission.

Lucifer seeks the key to the Gate of Promise, and when Schuyler is taken captive and delivered straight to Hell, she must make an unthinkable choice—the same one the archangel Michael was forced to make during the Crisis in Rome. Will Schuyler find the strength to do what he could not?

The epic, heartbreaking Blue Bloods series comes to a close with this final novel about staggering courage, unbearable sacrifice, and the immortality of true love.

    " Oh how I will miss this series.. It was awesome to read and sad to see it end. But everything worked out perfectly for all the blue bloods. Jack and Schuler together, Bliss and Fenrir, Mimi and Kingsley, and oh my Olivers ending was I think the best. lol :D Will def be re-visiting this series in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Byrne | 1/20/2014

    " I was dissapointed that even though Schuyler and jack have this epic love story, there wasn't much about them together in this book. The ending was not as satisfying as I had hoped. However, it was overall a pretty good book. It kept me entertained and because I absolutely love Kingsley I was happy with the amount of page time he got. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 pansy | 1/17/2014

    " I read this in one sitting. Its was an amazing read. Its sad to see how it unfold. How every secret was shown and the twist at the end of who her father was also good. I wonderful end to a wonderful series. Melissa did it right and I love her for it. There was no more cliffhanger because she tied it all so nicely. Engrossing and loveable... "
