Synopsis:

In the final showdown between the forces of dark and light, Mal and Chrysabelle face not only their old master, the vampire Tatiana, but the ancient evil that now controls her: the Castus Sanguis. Chrysabelle gathers her friends and family around her, forming a plan to bring an end to the chaos surrounding them. But the Castus is the most powerful being they’ve ever come up against.
Defeating such evil will require a great sacrifice from someone on the side of light. One of them will change sides. One of them will die. No one will survive unscathed. Can Chrysabelle save those she cares about or will that love get her killed? What price is she willing to pay to draw last blood?

Review:

I hate that feeling you get when a series comes to an end. I didn’t want to read the last book knowing this was going to be the case. However read it I did.
While there was not one big action scene that I thought there would be, there were still many twists and turns. Nothing is ever easy for Mal and Chrysabelle. If everything were I wouldn’t be reading these books.
A beautiful conclusion to the series. One I will surely read again.
