Wow! What a riveting conclusion to one of my favorite series of all time. Seeing as this is book seven and the concluding installment, it'd be difficult to comment on my favorite plot points and characters without spoiling at least one of the proceeding books for those who have not read the series or are up to date.
It feels like eons that I've been waiting for the Blue Bloods final battle, and while it was fast paced and intense, it seemed to rush a little too quickly. Some romantic pairings left something to be desired, while others finally meshed in the exact way I wanted them to.This series has definitely gone by in a whirlwind and Gates of Paradise did not disappoint.
Schuyler Van Alen is running out of time. The Dark Prince of Hell is storming the Gates of Paradise, intent on winning the heavenly throne for good. This time he has his greatest angels by his side, Abbadon and Azrael, or as they are known in the coven, Jack and Mimi Force. Will Bliss and the wolves she has recruited to join her win the battle for the vampires? Is Schuyler prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice, the same one Michael was forced to make in Florence so long ago? Love and vengeance, duty and and loyalty, life and death, are all at odds in the gripping, heartbreaking finale of the Blue Bloods series.
