Is this really over? A different Jeaniene Frost but as great as ever. The Brightest Embers was a well worthy end to this trilogy and prove that nothing is carved in stone. It took me some hours to get my head clear again, after finishing this book. The end was full of shocking moments and I wasn´t prepared for them at all. But then, can a Jeaniene Frost reader ever be prepared for what she presents in her novels?

The life of all people is in the hands of the young Ivy. In the war between the angels and demons, she is destined to destroy the kingdom of darkness forever. But her own life is in danger when she uses the holy weapon against the demons of darkness. Adrian, Ivy´s great love, wants to help her in the final fight. Only his demonic side seems strong enough to save Ivy – but the evil in him could forever destroy their love. In the fight for their lives, Ivy and Adrian have to face their fate … (personal translation)
Ivy knows that if she wants to free all those humans trapped in the demon’s kingdom, she has to find and use the holy weapon. But is she really willing to give up her own life to free those, she doesn´t even know? And why is Adrian lying to her and keeping important information back? Is this his way of helping her? Or has he already betrayed her?

The atmosphere is darker, and the main figure completely changed. Ivy is what we call a strong female character and she proves it on every page this book has. Thankfully, the irony, the cynicism, and the sarcasm are in this novel too. But the story itself is totally different from what I´ve expected. That her job is a matter of belief and faith, was clear to me, but that both were essential to fulfilling what Ivy was destined to do, which I thought was another story. Jeaniene Frost was able to keep her writing style. Many unanswered questions got an answer, and the novel brings some loose ends together. Once you´ve got started you can´t put it aside.

I was very happy, that Jasmine had only some short appearances. It was exhausting to see her reaction almost every time Ivy decided something Jasmine wasn´t happy with: she then turned into a hysterical screaming woman. The only good thing was, that the author made some positive changes in this novel regarding some of her figures. It was wonderful to follow Ivy´s new way of thinking, how she fought not only for herself but for others as well. And the one scene, where she tells Adrian how she really feels about him and their marriage – fantastic!

What an end! There is so much emotion between the pages, so many unspoken things you can see, and everything fits perfectly. And that end – holy smokes. The Broken Destiny trilogy is different from the author´s other series but absolutely worth your time.

Happy reading
