Publisher's summary

In the end, everyone must pay for their sins. 

Trial after trial, Nevaeh's loved ones have struggled to save her from a dark destiny. The time has finally come for her to return home and join the Earth-bound angels in a war threatening to destroy the human race.  

Is it really Nev who's walking the earthly plane, though?

True, being surrounded by evil for weeks on end would change anyone, but Nev's friends suspect something is wrong with the Nevaeh they've extracted from hell's grip.  

Archard, Arkin, Maggie, and Malach prepare to fight the impending apocalypse brought on by the rebellious Dominions, while trying to accept the new Nevaeh and help her gain control over her powers. 

Will Nevaeh be able to save the world, or will she make everyone pay with their lives?

Contrition is the third and final book of the Faltering Souls series. This book is told in multiple POV for several of the characters. This audiobook is much shorter than the others from the series but jam packed with action and emotion. Mini spoiler alert- I cried...like actual tears cried at one part and teared up at another. It is rare for books to make me actually cry so I love it when it happens.

This book picks up right where book two ended, just as book two started right where book one had ended. These books do not standalone. You must start with book 1 and go from there.

In Contrition, we see Nev, or at least Nev's body full of souls that she consumed, in a struggle to save the world or damn it completely. At the end of book 2, Severance, we saw Rhett trick Nev into consuming his soul so he could escape hell, and since he is so powerful, it is unknown which soul, Nev's or Rhett's, will assume control of Nev's body and all of her powers.

There are a lot of twists and turns and even the readers are left to wonder what is going to happen. And maybe it is just me, but I definitely was not expecting it to end the way it did. It was definitely a surprise. Whether it be a good or a bad surprise though, is up to you to determine. No spoilers from me.

Overall, I really enjoyed this series. This series was the first time that I have read this author and I will definitely read more from her in the future. I recommend this series. It is captivating and spans multiple sub-genres so we get a bit of a lot of things, such as mystery, suspense, horror, small amount of romance, and the obvious- Urban Fantasy. Even though this series discusses religion heavily, it is mostly done in a way that even non-believers will enjoy the story because it isn't preachy. The only exception to that was one chapter in Contrition where it stepped over from toeing the line and did feel a bit preachy for a moment there. But besides that, it is totally enjoyable for the fiction that it is.

As for the narration, the second and third books share the same narrator but the first book has a different narrator. I have to say that the narrator of Falter, book 1, knocked it out of the park. She was incredible. The narrator of Severance and Contrition was good but I struggled with her voices for Archard and Gavyn when she was doing straight narration for their POVs. She used almost the same voice as she used for Nevaeh and I occasionally had to stop to figure out whose POV it was. When it was all dialogue with each other, it was totally fine.
