About the Book:
For months part-angel Clara Gardner trained to face the fire from her
visions, but she wasn’t prepared for the choice she had to make that
day. Now, torn between her love for Tucker and her complicated feelings
about the roles she and Christian seem destined to play in a world that
is both dangerous and beautiful, Clara struggles with a shocking
revelation: Someone she loves will die in a matter of months. With her
future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire
was just the beginning.

I love this series. While I felt like this particular book didn’t
accomplish a whole ton plot-wise, I really enjoyed reading it. I grew to
like all the characters a little more and became more invested in what
happened to them. I even loved Samjeeza. What a fantastic bad guy! He
was so creepy.
I will definitely be reading the final book in the series.
