"East of Ecstasy" is the final book in this good versus evil series. The East wind is wreaking trouble on the East Coast--all the signs that the evil Eurus is in his final stage of destruction. But out of the storm comes Devlin to right his father’s wrong and save the mortal realm. Drawn to Annalise, Delvin finds acceptance and love--something he has never had. But Annalise's world is changing and she is slowly getting sicker-–while painting graphic pictures of battle between Devlin and his father. This book brings back all the characters from the other books as we read the final showdown of evil versus good.
An outstanding conclusion to the wind series ('Hearts of the Anemoi'), with this book bringing all the characters back for a final showdown. Eurus of the East Wind has always been that character we hate in the books and it’s great to see him replaced by his son Devlin. Devlin was introduced in an earlier book and his character is one of great pain and passion trying to make up for his father’s past sins. Annalise's character is a struggling human trying to care for an ailing father while painting pictures of the future battle between Devlin and his father. Her acceptance of Devlin is a beautiful thing even before we know that she is the daughter of two gods. This is a book that is not only a love story but like all of the books in this series this is a book of acceptance and forgiveness and battling the darkness. The East Wind has a new god and Devlin (with Annalise's help) is its master.
I must say that I am sorry that this is the conclusion of this series. Hopefully the author will continue a spin-off from this series. If you have not read this series, you should try it.

Annalise Fallston made peace with postponing her big-city dreams to care for her ill father, but lately she's been filled with a restlessness not even her beloved painting dispels. Worse, the colors don't speak to her as they always have, and all her efforts produce dark, foreboding images of a dangerous man and a terrifying future.
Devlin Eston, black-souled son of the evil Anemoi Eurus, is the only one who can thwart his father's plan to overthrow the Supreme God of Wind and Storms. But first, Dev must master the unstable powers he's been given. Distrusted and shunned by his own divine family, he never expected to find kindness and passion in the arms of a mortal.
But Devlin's love puts Annalise in the path of a catastrophic storm, and in the final Armageddon showdown between the Anemoi and Eurus, sacrifices will be made, hearts broken, and lives changed forever...or lost.
