I searched for you in the stars tonight.
But I found none
that burned as bright as you.

—Part of a letter from Dev to Molly

With the loss of Terra’s greatest weapon, the war against darkness escalates rapidly, and time is on no one’s side. While Dev struggles to keep his home and hope alive, Molly and Rae find themselves forced to confront a desperately kept secret and quickly learn that a life-altering sacrifice is the asking price to restore order. 

Nightmares, betrayal, the fate of two worlds, and one man’s hunger for vengeance lead Molly down a twisted and dark path she fears she might never come back from. Cornered into making a heart-wrenching decision, Molly teeters between deliverance and damnation. Who is worth saving most—a nation or the one she loves?

My Thoughts:

I was sent a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I can’t believe this is the last book in this series! I’m going to miss all these characters so much!! The book hangover with The Destined was so real, it took me a while to pick up another book and get over everything that happened.

I could not be more satisfied with the way things ended so as much as I’m going to miss the beautiful world and amazing characters that have made their way into my heart, I will say E.J. concluded this novel beautifully. Molly and Dev are such amazing characters and I will always love them, but there is one character that stole my heart and his name is Rae! Gosh, he may not be one of our main characters, but he sure made an impression on me; I love how selfless and just overall amazing he is and the fact that he is such an adorable dork makes me love him even more. The way E.J. Mellow made me fall in love with the secondary characters speaks volumes of her writing! I’ve read so many novels where the secondary characters just blend and become background noise, but not hers. This novel had me at the edge of my seat! I just could not put it down! Mellow put my babies through so much, but I forgive her hahaha.

Molly is such a bad ass character and her growth in this novel is amazing, she goes from a broken, shy girl to someone who won’t take shit from any one and will let her power known! Dev, what can I say about him?! He is just amazing and the way he loves Molly makes my heartache! He also goes through tremendous growth himself and learns that sometimes it is okay to trust others. Mellow made me an emotional wreck towards the end, but I would not change one single thing about this novel or series. Thank you so much E.J. for introducing me to these amazing characters and to taking me to the beautiful world of Terra! I’m sure I will be revisiting it soon on my spare time. And if you have not picked this series up please, please do I promise you will not regret, I mean come on Dev haha! But in all seriousness, I highly recommend this series is one of my favorites.
