Everything must come to an end, and as Eli contemplates the loss of Malachi in a London ripped apart by war, he knows that the final battle looms ever closer.

Where is Ethan? Eli can feel him, their love for each other calling through time, but History conspires to keep them apart as Morbius uses him for the final game.

Desperate to find a way to end the war, Eli once again delves into the distant past in search of answers, but as Jack the Ripper taunts him from the pages of his dead lover’s diary, Eli is left despondent. So many lies, so many terrible secrets bleeding across his memories, and all of it to keep him safe from the fingers of those who would destroy him.

Love. All of it for love. So much lost, and all of it because of love. As Eli says goodbye to London for the last time, he can only hope that love will be enough to end the madness.

He has a plan to rescue Ethan. An audacious plan and it will take all of History by his side to see it through to the bitter end. It is time to break Ethan free from the bonds that enslave him, and as they hurtle towards Berlin, the final sacrifice begins.

In the blurb at the beginning of this final book in the series, Sean Kerr says that “it is in how those stories end that we remember them.” Using that as a guide, then this story will be remembered as a devastating, overwhelming, horrible, wonderful, heart-wrenching story with a romance of truly biblical proportions. And he drags us through it, holding off on the resolution until the final paragraphs.

This series was way out of my usual comfort zone for reading. It was challenging because of the level of horror. It was challenging in how it incorporated so many stories from the Bible and channeled them into the horrors of the twentieth century. There were moments that had tears running down my face. There were moments of humor that were desperately needed. And through all of that, Kerr weaved in some epic romances. Eli and Ethan. Melek and Malachi. Gideon and Leonidas. This final book pulled all of the elements together and allowed the reader to find resolution. While this is not my usual genre, I am so thankful I read this series. It will stay with me. I can definitely recommend it.
