She just hopes the casualties won't include the one man she's risking everything for....

The final installment of this series does not disappoint. The large plot that has been gradually revealed over the last several books comes to a head and most of the questions are finally answered. For the most part, the outcomes are what you would expect if you've been paying attention to all the little clues that were dropped along the way, though there are a few surprises here as well. By the end, to say that nothing will be the same again is a huge understatement.
The substantial character growth we saw from Georgina in the last book continues to develop and solidify in this one. After a lifetime -- several lifetimes actually -- of dodging consequences and shying away from confrontation, she's finally ready to truly own up to her mistakes and at least attempt to deal with the mess she's created. Though she learns some staggering truths about just how much her actions over the centuries have impacted at least one other person in particular, instead of burying her head in the sand and dissolving into a ball of self-pity as she's always done in the past, she sucks it up and faces it head on, determined to try to finally do the right thing and at least try to make amends. Once all it said and done, it appears that she's been successful and will finally get the happily ever after that she's long been denied.
Overall, the answers found in this book are largely what I had expected they would be, for we'd been given enough clues up to this point that it wasn't hard to guess what had been going on in the background unbeknownst to Georgina for all the centuries of her long life. Still, enough of the details had still been uncertain that it wasn't all just an "I knew that" situation here. A few surprises await us as well that keep the story fresh and from being too entirely predictable. The final outcome is largely a happy one, but it's not without a few bittersweet notes. It was inevitable that at least a few sacrifices would have to be made here, and while the biggest one is a bit surprising, it makes sense once you think about it.
A satisfying ending to a very intriguing and entertaining series. While I'm a bit sad to see the last of Georgina, for I've enjoyed her personality as well as those of all her friends, it was good to finally see her get some resolutions and closure to issues that have plagues and haunted her for centuries. I'll definitely be checking out more of Ms. Mead's works for I've really enjoyed her style of writing.
I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.
I liked this whole series a lot. Georgina was a flawed, but likable character and her ups and downs felt real.
That being said, I think the series went one book too long. I'm glad that G got her happily ever after. But am curious what happens to her crew.

A fascinating series, this installment had it all. There's intrigue, suspense, intense emotion and satisfying surprises. The characters are all entertaining.
There's a point where Seth and Georgina recognize that they were centuries old lovers and keep running across each other in time. At this point, there's a sequence of events that makes the rest of the story so intense that you can't stop listening!
The emotions of the characters draw the listening into the story, unable to hit pause as the complex plot is professionally unwound and painstakingly detailed.
This was the perfect ending to a wonderful series. Georgina Kincaid is not given a happy ending, she earns it. I love the series and it will always be one of my favorites.
I love everything this author writes and I loved this series, however Seth was starting to get on my nerves. I was glad in Book 5 that Seth and Georgina had broken up only to be disappointed in Book 6 that they were back together.

I loved this series and am sad that this was the final book, but it was also nice to have an ending that brought all of the threads of the story together in a satisfying way. I think it would have been hard to keep the story fresh if it had continued on for a long time, and it's sad when a series starts to feel like it's dragging on. I'll miss these characters, but I'd rather have that than get tired of them.
For background, my favorite authors are George R. R. Martin, Robin Hobb, Jacqueline Carey, Ken Follett, Bernard Cornwell, Kevin Hearne, Jim Butcher and Margaret George. My favorite illustrators are Johanna Basford, Millie Marotta, Richard Merritt, and Claire Scully (just to name a few).
I was not at all disappointed in this installment. It was a great ending to the series that was satisfying. There aren't really any threads left hanging and that is a good thing. I would love to see stories about some of the other Seattle characters at some point but there is no real need unless Richelle Mead wants to take a dip back into that world.
If you have been following the series, do not skip this book! If you haven't read any of the series yet? Go start from the beginning because it is totally worth it!
Look out for laughter, tears and just all around characters you want to invest time in.
Thanks Ms. Mead, I really enjoyed Georgina's story. And Ms. Rodgers, thanks for giving a consistent and believable voice to a character I really like.
The series although kind of slow and anticlimactic actually grows on you the last book was almost unbearable this one was better and tied up everything nicely.
It hooked me in the first book and I had to keep reading. An epic love story that has it all, tragedy, humor, steamy romance, and a .happy ending. Narrator did an excellent job. Well rounded story. Glad I picked up the series.
Watching the story come full circle.
Richelle Mead is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. I loved this series..
Very good narration, sad to see the series end, totally fun audio series to listen too, highly recommend it.
