From J.R. Ward, the number one New York Times best-selling author who has kept readers on the edge of their seats with her phenomenal Fallen Angels novels, comes one of the most heart-stirring and eagerly anticipated events in that acclaimed series.
This is a world where sin and salvation collide. This is a world where a cynical fallen angel struggles with the seven deadly sins and seven chosen souls. With the spellbinding Immortal, the riveting series that "changed the face of paranormal romance" comes to an epic close as mankind's reluctant savior struggles with his greatest challenge yet.

Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!
This series is filled with interesting characters and the right balance of suspense, action and romance.
I like that each book had two stories in one. The ongoing fight for the seven souls between good and evil to see which side could collect the most souls and the romance of these souls meeting and falling in love.
I was sad this series ended; however, I think there will be either a spinoff or will be picked up in JR Ward's other series "Black Dagger Brotherhood" because one of their characters being mention in the last book.
Eric did an awesome job of narrating the story and I will definitely look for the other books narrated by him.
I recommend this book and series for anyone looking for a differnt PNR but suggest starting with the first book.
Only if they've already started this series. In light of how the final book in the series ended, though, I won't recommend new readers.
Eric's performance was good as usual. I just had a problem with the story itself.
I don't know what happened. I seriously can't explain what happened in this series. One minute it was a cool little fallen angels series. Then the final book is released and it's... Not.
Maybe it's the post-coital feeling of the end of a series. Usually with the end of a series the expectations are high to have a satisfying ending and all your questions answered.
The best thing I can say about this were the little tidbits of information we learned about Lassiter.
For those that have not read Wards Black Dagger Brotherhood series, that is where you can meet Lassiter. Not until book 8 of that series, though. I can assure you EVERY scene Lassiter is in is almost guaranteed to make you either giggle, smile or laugh uncontrollably. He's so much fun.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I was surprised to discover this was the final book in the Fallen Angels Series. What about 7 books for 7 souls – or at least that is what I had assumed. It makes me wonder if JR Ward got tired of writing this series and just decided to end it at book 6. The one was good but it did feel rushed compared to the previous books in the series. I would have preferred a little more “meat on the bone” to this story but I guess the author had another view. Fair enough, it’s her series.
Overall I mostly enjoyed this book and I am satisfied with the overall conclusion even if it did feel rushed. As with all the other books, Devina was the true star and her character made me laugh and at times feel sorry for her. I credit Ward for her brilliant writing and character development.
I would recommend this series to fans of Ward or those who enjoy paranormal romance or fantasy.
Sr Exec-High travel & no time to read. Love UF PNR with strong character develpoment & supernaturals living among us. own nearly 900 titles
Imagine a war between good and evil going on right around us without our knowledge. This storyline builds on common believes of God and Angels and Heaven and Hell. Flawed characters right to do what they believe is right for the sake of mankind. And their are steamy scenes and twists and laughs. I've enjoyed every book! Ward has a great imagination and I can get lost in her universe.
Jim, Sissy, and the band of sexylicious angels finally have something good happen! This was a great ending to an awesome series. There were moments that were a little anti-climatic, but, overall, the angels and demons went at it hard fighting for their side, and I loved every minute. This entire series has been a spiritually mind bending, emotionally charged, hysterically funny and erotic journey. I'd give it 10 stars if I could; I can't wait for another series from Ward, I'm a fan for life!
I started listening to this series after listening to The Black Dagger Brotherhood. At first, I was disappointed because I thought it was going to have Lassiter in it. After a couple of books, I couldn't wait to finish the series. I am extremely happy with the ending of the series.
I would recommend the entire series to any of my friends. I am an atheist, and I take all stories of angels and daemons as fantasy. J.R. Ward was brilliant in this series with the war of good and evil. Each book in the series was better than the last. This one the final book in the series was great and had several twists that made it very enjoyable.
So many that make this series work, however Jim Devina and Sissy really play off each other so well. And of course Devina is an evil you love to hate. (Devina was so much more than evil) I loved her sessions with her Psychotherapist........(is she really the "Almighty"?) LOL. The heavenly cast of Archangels really are a mix too.
He was a fantastic narrator, doing both male and female voices great.......I couldn't believe how well he did Devina.......and Jim.
I actually started on Saturday night and finished on Sunday. It wasn't that long of a book just over 10 hours but truly a great ending to a series.....So many series are a disappointment with the endings.....However so far this is the second series I've completed that ended fantastic. Kim Harrison's "Rachael Morgan" series just ended and it to was narrated very well and ended beautifully. Thank you J.R. Ward for dong this so right. And Eric Dove for his fantastic narration.
Not sure if there will be follow ups with Lassiter, and the the other Angels looking into things that delve into the BDB. I guess we'll just see.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Oh, Jim Jim Jim our loveable Hero and Saviour sadly we have to say a fond farewell to you and all the other well loved characters including Dog, the Archangels, Eddie and Adrian in this, the finale, to what has been an action-packed series... you will all be missed. We've witnessed 5 souls reaching their crossroads, 5 flags won and the battle of good vs. evil rages on with the fate of the world resting in one Immortal's hands.
J R Ward has delivered yet another very imaginative, addictive and brilliant story that has suspense, humor, snappy dialogue, romance, lots of plot twists, sex (milder than other books) forgiveness, miracles and plenty of drama. Davina, the wicked Queen Demon with her O.C.D. shoe fetish, was just so funny but she still doesn't change her evil plans and her all consuming desire for Jim. But this is mainly about Jim and Sissy and what they have to go through to finally get their HEA ending. But there's a hint that we haven't seen the last of Adrian and Eddie as their new mission could involve Lassiter from the epic BDB series.
Worth a credit? For all of you who, like me, have loved each and every book in this series then you know already what my answer is going to be..... a well deserved YES. A standing ovation not only goes to J R Ward but also to Eric G Dove's narration who skilfully created the atmosphere, the emotions and brought to life all the characters from mere words.
I don't know about you, but when I begin a series and get seriously entranced by it, I always worry about how the author will wrap it up at the end. I felt that there were many ways the author could go with this, but I feel that J R Ward did a fantastic job of tying up all the loose ends and delivering an ending that should please readers. it certainly pleased this reader!
