In the long-awaited finale of her riveting Brimstone Angels series, Erin M. Evans thrusts her signature character, Farideh, into an epic battle of good versus evil, rife with deception and intrigue, where the question is as much who is evil as how they can be defeated. The stakes have never been higher, and the fallout will shake the Hells and, through them, the Forgotten Realms.
Before Farideh took a devil's pact, before she was Chosen by the god-king of the Hells, before any of this started, there was Bryseis Kakistos, the original Brimstone Angel, first of Farideh's line. Now, at the end, there is also Bryseis Kakistos - but this time, instead of helping the king of the Hells achieve godhood, she's going to kill him. All she needs is a little help from Farideh - which she should, by all accounts, be happy to give. After all, who could object to killing the king of the Hells? Except, it turns out, Farideh. Because as always, things are far more complicated than they seem.

Yes I would recommend this. It was a great series the twin girls really came to life for me. And Lorkin really is a devil, darling :)
As a fan of previous volumes in this series, I'm quite displeased to say that the latter half of this novel is written so slapdashidly it's makes the final installment of the Brimstone Angels wholely forgettable.
Erin chose to write flashbacks within dialogue and flash forwards from gods' perspectives without much pause or foreword on the matter. Mrs Pearlman is not a strong enough narrator to convey these jaunts back and forth and miles apart well enough for the scenes to even make sense.
[spoilers] Toward the end of the novel, an army marches on the city, then they're in the nine hells - no wait, it's a dream I sup- apparently the devil's are, no wait they're still on Toril? What turtle are they talking about? wait, who is talking now?
I thought I must have missed something and listened to the last 3 chapters two additional times and only have an adequate grasp of what transpired - where other installments in the series, PARTICULARLY Ashes of the Tyrant are fantastically clear given the subject matter.
I also have fault with the editing of this Novel: "as if [he/she] could" is written no less than a thousand times in this book if I had to guess. "Wet [his/her] mouth" and "Pursed [his/her] mouth" are also used to a STUNNING degree. unlike the written format, one cannot simply glide over these repeated phrases when the occur too rapidly - It happens enough to be jarring to anyone who listened to this novel with me.
This is one of those books where the story is matched beautifully by the narration.
