Aislin Ferry and Jason Moros have only days until they will be called to account before the Keepers of the Afterlife. Yet as they race to restore order and make their case, their worlds fall into total disarray.

Mutiny within the fractured Ferry family threatens Aislin’s hold on power and role as Charon. Meanwhile, the fearsome Lord of the Kere has family trouble of his own. Someone is unraveling the fabric of fate, and Moros suspects one of his supernatural siblings is behind the terrible bid to unleash Chaos.

Now unlikely allies, Aislin and Moros each need the other to escape the wrath of the Keepers. As the stakes rise, it becomes clear that protecting their respective empires is not the endgame. With the fate of all humanity dangling by a thread, Aislin and Moros must surrender completely to one another if they are to fight their common enemy. And as time runs out, someone must make the ultimate sacrifice.

 
 
I have absolutely LOVED this series by Sarah Fine. She does such an amazing job of writing paranormal romance and I have loved all three couples and the relationships they have developed. This book really explores the Fates and the roles they play and I was absolutely fascinated with how Fine incorporated that. For the last two books, Jason Moros has been an anti-hero, being the Leader of the Kere who begrudgingly work side by side with the Ferrys. The Kere are in charge of marking souls for death, while the Ferrys are responsible for sending those souls to their proper final resting place. I knew this last book would feature him and Aislin Ferry, the Charon, but I was still unprepared for the intensity of what would develop between them!
 
I ended up really loving Aislin. She was a bit of an ice queen in the previous books but she is extremely hard-working and dedicated to her family and her job. She was not presented as a warm, embracing character like her sister Cacy was. Aislin has always felt that abyss between her and her sister and it was heartbreaking, because she really wanted to have a friendship with her little sister. I knew that Aislin's character would be completely different once we saw things from her point of view. I felt the same way about Moros's character. It was awesome to see the Lord of Death FEEL and have emotions just like any other human would. Aislin and him are the perfect match and I loved seeing them come to that very realization. Naturally, they have some pretty sexy scenes together and I couldn't get enough of them.
 
I can't say much more as this is the final book in the series and definitely do not want to spoil it for anyone. Fine is such an engaging author and does a spectacular job of transporting you into a world that has been ravaged by the forces of light and dark. Loyalties are tested, trust must be earned, and deception is never far.... but underneath it all, love remains and serves as a symbol of hope. I cannot recommend this series enough!

  5. So, I have not read this because of how disappointed I was with the second book, Claimed. I am hoping this one not only makes up for the second, but blows me away!
