Publisher's Summary

The ghoul population is on the increase. FACT. Creatures' numbers are dwindling. FACT.

Into this sorry state of affairs falls Eve. She's abnormal in all the ways that count to humans, but at Caelum, where she should be among her peers? Even here she's weird. No woman has more than one mate. Eve? She has seven. And the creatures that dominate her mind? There are eight of those battling for power in her soul.

With the war having come to Caelum's front door, Eve and her mates have no option but to escape the perils she faces at an Academy where anyone extraordinary is to be exterminated. On the path to safety, however, Eve and her mates must uncover exactly who she is, and what, if they can ever hope to lead normal lives. But with the revelations come more peril than any of them could have imagined.

Contains mature themes.

The final book

This was the final book of the trilogy, and worthy of the 3 credits used for each.
Reverse harem, paranormal slow burn romance. It had a new perspective on paranormal creatures and religion with the idea that creatures have 8 souls (vampire, were, gargoyle, etc) in them and that they were the original creations of God. With a spin on religion(s) and mythology about the creation of all, it was an Interesting journey.
I listened to the book on speed of 1.5 (I usually end up doing so as narration always seems way to slow in most audiobooks, perhaps that’s just me)
Narrators were a mix of good and great and I enjoyed this 3-book journey!

Well that just got weird.

I generally liked this series, but the way the story takes Eve's nature and mission kinda killed it for me. Pretty much wish I had stopped with book two.

Just wow!

I won’t say I agree with all of the biblical standpoints, but I love how Serena took such a twist and blended the paranormal with a biblical aspect. I know she had to change up the story of the Bible to make the story work, so it still works for me. I honestly wish I had more of this story. Eve was such a breath of fresh air. Her whole story made so much sense. I loved how the whole tail unraveled. The overall narration and story was amazing. Seriously I feel as if Dre left me needing more of him throughout the story though. If I could just get more of him I would be so happy. This whole series is a definite must read for me. I am so glad I found it! Now I have to go bury my sorrows in another book or something because I can’t believe it’s over!

WOW. Hands down one of the best.

This was one of the best audible books I’ve done this year. I really enjoyed this paranormal RH it was amazing. I enjoyed the growth and even the religious take on it. & I’m not a religious person. This books pulls on all your heart strings make you laugh and wanna cry. It’s not a teen bullying book. It had very little bullying in it. I finished all three books in 2 I couldn’t stop. I was obsessed

Disappointed

I loved the first two but this one did a dive into "God" which is fine but not my cup of tea. Then it was humans don't deserve ......blah blah blah. I had high hopes and only finished because I don't like quitting.

Amazing

Having the last book read to me allowed me to have that first time feeling all over again. I have loved this story since it was released and the audio for this book is no different. Amazing job!

Well thought out.

Love this story ❤️ read this one before listening to the audible so I did have a different idea of the voices of everyone in my head but they still did a good job. Love this story and with everything going on in the world it was the perfect listen ❤️

9 Lives

Some aspects of this final book was fascinating in the info added to the book. The storyline -ok. I don’t quite know what I was expecting, but this wasn’t it. This not a bad review, just a bit different.

All in all this series was ok

The storyline in this series was decent aside from it taking a turn towards the biblical and the fmc being kinda dense due to her cult upbringing. After book one she should have wised up with her odd mannerism. It was an interesting take on shifters/vampires/sirens/demons etc. I like more steam in my rh this was definitely lacking in that department it was about a 2/5. I like that it had a male and female narrator and that it was multiple pov.

***Confusing***

I loved the first 2 books but book 3 is disappointing, it went on and on and im a Catholic but involving *GOD* here make it sound like God is a fiction. I can tolerate the devil being constantly used in books but directly involving God is not good dude. Anyway the saving grace of this story are the narrator's their both brilliant and the dynamic of the the chosen's is interesting to see and their relationship evolved specially Dre the grumpy lol. thank you.
