Kara has been training for months to help take down Brakken-the merciless black-wing who is making life hell for the Demiare. But when Julian discovers a scout has been tracking Kara, he wants her out of the fight-even if it means breaking her heart in the process.Gavin isn't much better. He's already lost so much to Brakken and has no intention of allowing the woman he loves to be the next sacrifice. He and Julian have their hands full trying to fight Brakken's army and keep Kara safe, especially after her recent visit to the mythical white-wings. Since her return, she's been acting decidedly...strange.With a terrible battle looming, Kara doesn't have time to think about her conflicted feelings for Gavin and Julian-or the fact that she's developed an unnatural taste for Gavin's blood. But if she thought it was complicated evading mysterious scouts and fending off vicious black-wings, she's learning that's nothing compared to loving two strong-willed men.Warning: This book contains angels that aren't what they seem, a heroine with mad midwifery skills, and a metamorphosis that will change life as we knew it.

I almost made the very big mistake of reading this book as a standalone and hoping that I'd be able to pick up the story from the previous two books... I'm such an idiot!
This series is a trilogy and should be read as such and after reading the first few pages I did get so mightily confused that I picked up the first two and started over. Don't be an idiot like me and try to read this as a standalone, it seriously doesn't work AND you'll miss the wonders of the first two books.
Carver has managed to create a whole new world in these books, one that leaves you gasping for more and more. After finishing the first book I couldn't wait to start on the second one. The books are pacy enough to keep you hooked but not too drawn out to get you wishing time on.
The book has a very intriguing love triangle and I didn't feel any allegiance to either Gavin or Julian but lucky Kara! With this being the final part of this series, it all was tied up nicely with some of the secondary characters from the earlier books. I really like that attention to detail as some authors can ignore the full cast and I appreciate that Carver had thought this through.
The book seems to allude to more so maybe there will be a fourth book, if not there is plenty more here to write about with different side stories and relationships. Well done Cassi, another favourite series :)
No spoilers at all as I don't want to spoil it for you all but it gets the full 5 out of 5 :)
