A former Agent of death, Madeline Black now has everything to live for, most importantly, her unborn child. But Chicago has become ground zero in a struggle between ancient creatures, and only Maddy can stop the carnage... The mayor of Chicago has announced a plan to round up the city’s supernatural beings and put them in camps. With her due date looming, Maddy’s best move would be to lay low for a while. But not everyone is willing to respect her privacy. Hounded by tentacled monsters, a rogue shapeshifter, and a tenacious blogger, Maddy turns to her most powerful ally, her uncle Daharan, only to find him missing. Just when it seems like things can’t get any worse, Maddy gets an invitation in the mail—to Lucifer’s wedding. Turns out everyone has been invited, friends and enemies alike. And with that kind of guest list, it’s highly unlikely there will be a happily ever after.


Every single time I open a book in this series I think “Man, what will Maddie get into this time?”.   Then every single time I start reading it never fails that there is always an adventure to be had with the characters.  This one was a little bitter sweet though because it is the very last one ever in the series.  Let me just say that I am going to miss this series and its characters and I will most definitely have to read these again so that I can have my Beezle fix!

I will say that trouble doesn’t stay away from Maddie but in this book there wasn’t as much action as some of the others.  Maybe because it was coming to an end and they needed to stop but I like when there is the non-stop, action packed storyline.  Don’t get me wrong though because I still loved every single bit of this book!   The ending was just about the most perfect way that Christina could’ve ended this rollercoaster of ride, in my opinion.  This series will always stay one of my top favorite series and I can’t wait to see what else Christina Henry has in store.

This book was purchased and is an original review.  It is also the last in the series and it is not really a stand alone book.  If you don’t read the others then it could be confusing.

I give this book 5 Bullets

    I honestly wasn’t expecting the 5-star rating when I clicked on this post! I gave-up on Henry’s series long ago because I just couldn’t stand the heroine, and most of my blogger peeps that stuck with it were disappointed by this finale. Way to prove ’em wrong!
