Once she was a soldier for the Light, the prophesied savior who would decide the outcome of the eternal conflict raging unseen in the dark corners of her glittering hometown. Now Joanna Archer is just another mortal -- still born of an impossible union of Shadow and Light . . . still hunted by both -- and carrying the unborn child of a lover held captive by a depraved demon goddess. Joining forces with a band of rogue Shadow agents, Joanna's ready to storm the stronghold of her demonic foe, risking everything to enter this ghastly, godforsaken realm where the price of admission is her eternal soul. Because in a world that has stripped her of her power, identity, and fortune, Joanna has nothing left to lose -- except her baby, her future, and the epic war poised to consume the city.
Another great series has come to an end. Vicki did a great job of wrapping up things. I didn't feel that she left anything unresolved and everything flowed into everything else at a great place. All the characters seem to make an appearance at some point which was neat. We get answers to some things that might not have made sense when they first happened. There is plenty of action and drama. I wasn't crazy about some of the midheaven scenes and some of the things we learn are shocking to say the least but I can see how they needed to be done the way they were to close certain plot holes. I'm sad to see the series end, and I wish we could follow Joanna a little longer to see what her future holds.

I gave it 4/5 stars
