Will love conquer all?
Nora and Patch thought their troubles were behind them. Hank is gone and they should be able to put his ugly vendetta to rest. But in Hank's absence, Nora has become the unwitting head of the Nephilim and must finish what Hank began. Which ultimately means destroying the fallen angels - destroying Patch.
Nora will never let that happen, so she and Patch make a plan: lead everyone to believe they have broken up, and work the system from the inside. Nora will convince the Nephilim that they are making a mistake in fighting the fallen angels, and Patch will find out everything he can from the opposing side. They will end this war before it can even begin.
But the best-laid plans often go awry. Nora is put through the paces in her new role and finds herself drawn to an addictive power she never anticipated.
As the battle lines are drawn, Nora and Patch must confront the differences that have always been between them and either choose to ignore them or let them destroy the love they have always fought for.
I've been dying to see how this series would rap up and I did enjoy it, but I must say somethings were still the same. As in Nora, always annoying. I don't know what it is about the girl, but I can't get over the fact of how annoying she is. And didn't see much 'final develop' either, which was kind of disappointing. She had a thing with lying in this book, and I felt like that was completely unnecessary even with the situation as well. But I love being reunited with Patch again! Patch will always have a special place in my heart :) There were so many things going in within the book that kept me intrigued. Nora and Patch's fake 'breakup', devil craft (weird stuff), Donte (spell check, I listened to the audio), and the ever growing issues with the fallen angels and Nephilim.
I thought the action in the book was awesome :) That never disappoints and the romance was awesome as well. Even though Nora and I have a love/hate relationship, I love the connection between her and Patch. I felt like the ending of the book did rapped up well and left me with no question unanswered! Let me tell you, that deserves a hand clap because some authors are not able to do that for me :D Overall, I really enjoyed the series and I'm sad to see it go! I can't wait to see what Fitzpatrick has in store next.

I used to be your average, everyday girl but all that changed one night in Dublin when I saw my first Fae, and got dragged into a world of deadly immortals and ancient secrets. . . .
In her fight to stay alive, MacKayla must find the Sinsar Dubh—a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over the worlds of both the Fae and Man. Pursued by assassins, surrounded by mysterious figures she knows she can’t trust, Mac finds herself torn between two deadly and powerful men: V’lane, the immortal Fae Prince, and Jericho Barrons, a man as irresistible as he is dangerous.
For centuries the shadowy realm of the Fae has coexisted with that of humans. Now the walls between the two are coming down, and Mac is the only thing that stands between them.
I must say that I enjoyed this sequel way better than I did the first book in the Fever series. MacKayla was a lot more interesting to me in this book than the first, but I can't quite put my finger on why. She still questions everything, but I don't think she was as whiny. She still had her bitchy moments as well, but I enjoyed them in this book. I felt she had reason to act that way. Jericho is so interesting to me. I just can't figure him out. He's mysterious and doesn't care. He tells you only what you want him to know, and yet I LOVE him for that. I hope he doesn't turn out to be evil because I really like him. I think he is, by far, my favorite character in this series.
I also liked that there was way more action in this book that I enjoyed. I really didn't care for the action in the first book, so I'm happy to say that it was better in this one. And did I see a hint of romance?! Hmm, I'm really excited to check out the next installment because this ending did nothing for me. I have no clue what will happen next :)
