Overview

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Kenner (aka J. Kenner) �

The death and rebirth of Lily Carlyle has put her on the side of the angels, albeit with demonic powers. She has fought as a hired assassin for the forces of good, and as an undercover soldier, moving secretly amidst the forces of darkness. Now she must gather friends and allies and go underground, because the final battle against those who would open hell�s gates will be the fiercest of all.

�A wonderful balance between urban fantasy and paranormal romance. A casual, catchy first-person point of view peppered with slightly more four-letter-words than the genre usually bears, mingled with a kick-ass heroine and a dangerous, smoking-hot hero makes for an excellent read.�
The Discriminating Fangirl

This is the last book in the Lily Carlyle trilogy. I strongly suggest you read the two previous books (Tainted and Torn) before reading this book. I really enjoyed this book. It was a super fast read for me, solely because Lily dispensed an excessive amount of internal-dialogue. There are very few authors who can successfully carry-out continual internal-dialogue throughout a novel and still keep my attention. However, having skipped through much of the internal-dialogue scenes didn't make this book any less enjoyable for me. The story was chock-full of danger and excitement, a plethora of twists and turns, an abundance of intense action/fighting scenes and edge-of-your-seat apocalyptic events. Besides the internal-dialogue sections, this book didn't have a second to waste! Lily's dominating character is passionate, loyal, strong and fierce. This alpha-female literally has the weight of the world on her shoulders. She walks a fine line and fights a constant battle between reveling and surrendering to the darkness and cruelty of the powerful all consuming demon essence inside her; in contrary to her determination to achieve the aspirations for righteousness in her heart and her perpetual desire for ascension to be unsullied and virtuous. This last installment did wrap up the series but it also left a window for future books, if the powers-that-be decide to expand this series. This trilogy was my first exposure to Julie Kenner. Although, I won't be reading her Tales of a Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series, however, in the future, if Julie put out another trilogy such as this one, in all likelihood I would probably read it. As I've mentioned in my review of book one of this trilogy, I still didn't particularly care for this books affirmation of the Christianity version of faith and god. I don't usually read books that affirm any one particular religion; however, regardless of the non-preachy religious aspect, I still enjoyed this trilogy. I highly recommend this trilogy to fellow dark urban fantasy readers.

When monstrous Lucas Johnson viciously attacks her sister Rose, Lily Carlyle sought vengeance but died instead only to have an angel give her a second chance at righting all the wrongs she committed (see Tainted). After being used as an assassin by those she thought she should kill, she went undercover as a double agent destroying demons form within (see Torn). When the demons realize who she is and what she is doing, Lily revises her plan because she does not want on her eternal résumé a description of starting the Apocalypse, which she apparently has done. Now she enters Hell praying she can find the Oris Clef demonic key to shut the Ninth Gate and control the demonic horde answering the Apocalypse call. However, treachery from within her allies thwart her efforts, but Lily focuses on what the Archangel Gabriel told her that she is also a key, but that means her résumé will only be read in her eternal residence, the hottest inferno of Hell that Dante failed to describe out of fear. The final End of Days Blood Lily Chronicles is fast-paced and loaded with action from the opening of the final war between Heaven and Hell until the climax with Lily constantly caught in the middle. Fans will enjoy Lily's escapades and growth from the bad girl of Tainted as she tries to save humanity from the invading waves of demonic hordes, but the key is for the heroine to accept her apparent fate of spending eternity in the worst pit of Hell.
