Publisher's Summary

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.

An things come together.

Erin once again proves that she deserves far more credit than she get.
In an interview she once expressed her happiness at the prospect of being allowed to finish her story, even if at short notice.
Well, she has certainly managed to end her tale with a bang, creating a grand finally both managing to present several new things, while simultaneously managing to try together seemingly endless plot-threads, in addition to some created by others than her own writing (like the physical change of Erinyes between 4th and 5th edition D&D).

Erin also manages to give small bods to several older characters, not having played a role in the story for 1+ books, like Tam Zawad and Queen Raedra Obarskyr.

Lastly, the story is just epic, with tensions running high throughout most-every scene.

My only complaint is that the narrator struggles a bit with delivering consistent representations of the various characters. This being a problem not present in other narrations of hers.

A great ending to a fascinating story

Was tied to this series all the way through. Felt the ends were tied up neatly and character development was done very well. Wish to see how their story fares down the road.

These characters I dont want to see leave

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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 :)

A muddled need held aloft by good characters

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.

Wonderful climax

This is one of those books where the story is matched beautifully by the narration.

Excellent story, very good reading

Really the only criticism I have of this relates to the reader. A few words were strikingly pronounced wrong. Most notably genasi. It's only used a handful of times, clustered towards the beginning of the book, but every time, it's pronounced with a hard g. No word in the English language starts with gen and has a hard g, and the etymology of genasi is genie, which is also soft g. So the mistake was striking.

The story, however, was fantastic. Really nicely wrapped up the series. Though it's sad to think there won't be any more stories with Farideh et al.
