The sky is dark with wings . . . .\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nLike sand in an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past they must find the place where the angels fell to earth. Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn’t know if he can do this—live only to lose Luce again and again.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nYet together they will face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies . . . and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed. And suddenly Luce knows what must happen.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nFor she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they’ve borne has always and only been about her—and the love she cast aside. The choice she makes now will be the only one that truly matters.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nIn the fight for Luce, who will win?\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThe astonishing conclusion to the FALLEN series. Heaven can’t wait any longer.

Heaven can’t wait any longer?  Neither can I!!  Hallelujah this series is finally at an END!!!  It took me so long to get through this book!!!  I know all I had to do was listen to it but by this point, I just don’t care anymore.  The author’s lousy writing has totally lost my interest.  It is no longer any fun ripping these books apart.  I mean how many times can you say that the author’s writing sucks, the plot sucks, the story line is complete horse manure, the characters are so crappy they are not worth the pages they are written on and the narrator (throws hands up in the air in defeat), please don’t get me started with her.  I actually turned down a free audio book just so I wouldn’t have to listen to her voice anymore!!   WARNING!  SPOILERS FROM PREVIOUS BOOKS AHEAD!  The Last Recap: Luce and Daniel meet every 17 years for just a few days or hours, fall in love and Luce dies.  This has been happening for over 7,000 years, until now.  Why now, why is this re-incarnated Luce different; she was never been baptized and is able to make her own religious choice.   So, she finds Daniel and falls in love.  Daniel tries to keep Luce ignorant and safe this whole time, so they can try and beat the curse.  When she re-lives her past lives with Bill (aka Satan), she learns that Lucifer plans to go back to the beginning of the fall and collect all the Fallen Angels and force them to choose between him or the throne.  That means he will wipe out the last 7,000 years of existence for all the fallen and humans.   The last installment of this series takes Luce, Daniel and the rest of the Fallen Angels on the hunt for three items that will point the way to the original site of the Fallen.  Once at the site original site they will be able to stop Lucifer from wiping out the last 7,000 years of history.  The book is extremely fast past and jumps from scene to scene.  This is the book that the people that should have died don’t and people that should not have died did (very annoying).  Also the book was not totally resolved.  There are a lot of loose ends (please don’t make a spin off series!!!!) and many questions still unanswered.  Good news is the climax was a HUGE disappointment!  Luce and Daniel finally got together.  Happily ever after, blah blah blah!!   The narrator of the book is Justine Eyre.  I will be so happy never to hear another book by her.   The most enjoyable part about this book is that the series is OVER.   P.S. I still love the book covers!!!
