Doesnt even begin to describe how truly great this book is. I've been waiting so long and it didnt dissappoint. The ending, although rushed, was worth it. Thank you for the amazing story I've loved to follow throughout the years. This will always be a favorite. The growth is amazing.

I just can’t put it into words. This is probably the best installment of the series. I can’t even explain how amazing these books are. This was the perfect ending to the perfect series, and I could not be more thrilled with it. I was kept on my toes through each chapter. It does not disappoint. Melissa de la Cruz seemed to know what her fans would want, and she hasn’t lost her ability to throw in her iconic twists that you just can’t believe. I was given the scare of my life near the very end! But I love how everything turned out for not just some, but all of the characters—Schuyler, Mimi, Bliss, and also Oliver!

Words can't describe the way I feel about this book. But i felt that it was the perfect ending to such a great series. I'm sad that the series has ended after this book but it ended perfectly. Blue bloods has always been my #1 favorite book series since I read Blue Bloods for book club. To see a book series end always brings tears to my eyes especially this one.

One of the best series I have ever read. Truly beautiful and mezmerizing. I have been reading the blue bloods series since two years ago and I was really looking forward for Gates of Paradise. On the release date, I went to my local book store and there was only one left. I did not care if anyone else wanted it, I took it the second I saw it. I have not read it yet but I am really looking forward to reading Gates of Paradise. Schuyler is my favorite character of the whole series. And I was enthralled with the romance between Schuyler and Jack. They both deserve each other. The sad thing is that the Blue Bloods series is over. Sad face. But I heard Melissa de la Cruz may be making a new Blue Bloods series. Which is so exciting!!!!!!! I will forever adore this series.

I have adored the Blue Bloods series from the very beginning and I am pleased to say that the conclusion did the series justice. I read the whole thing in under 5 hours. It was fantastic. Each part of the book is like a puzzle piece, and they all come together at the end. Some may call it fast-paced, but I thought it was perfect. Sadly, I haven't read the Wolf Pact novellas since they're ebooks, so I was a little lost about the wolves. But it didn't detract from the conclusion. I loved how everything was ended so cleanly. There's not any guesswork of "what happened to that character?!" And I loved what Melissa de la Cruz did with Oliver. He was one of my favorite characters and I'm happy that he got a happy ending. It was a beautiful end to a beautiful series.

Oh, how this series is truly one of my beloved stories. Its sad to see the blue bloods series end! I was not disappointed on how this ended. I was almost choked on my food on the second to last chapter. I truly praise these serious, I've started with them when I was a young tween and now finished it as a young adult..

This book was an amazing way to end the series. Although I am sad that this series I have been following since middle school is over, it ended perfectly even though I did shed a few tears here and there while reading it. Thank you so much for creating such wonderful characters and story. The Blue Bloods series will be one that I will continue to re-read over and over again in the future.

Such a wonderful Series - this finale was by far the best. Melissa de la Cruz made my heart ache for these characters that I have come to love. I cried and laughed with this one. It truly was the perfect ending to the series - can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

I have waited far too long to read this conclusion of the Blue Bloods series, so I was incredibly happy when I decided to pick up a copy at the library and just finish it. Everything starts coming together in this novel, and it’s mostly action from start to finish, which was a lot of fun. Mimi and Jack are acting as double agents, Bliss is working with the hellhounds to help fix the timeline, and Schuyler is finally figuring out what it means to be the key to the Gate of Promise. I loved getting back into the swing of things and how everything is on a knife’s edge throughout pretty much the whole book. Who can be trusted? Is Kingsley on their side? Are Jack and Mimi really double agents? It’s a whole lot of suspicion and doubt and trying to fight the good fight, and I really liked that. Everyone’s preparing for an all-out war with Lucifer, and I liked how the shifting character perspectives shows how the war is shaping up as a whole and what each character’s part in it is. I LOVE that we get more Bliss time and that she’s really coming into herself as a hellhound and working to find her place within her pack. While I enjoyed this book, however, there were two main problems with this book: the pacing and the ending. I expected it to be all action and let’s go get Lucifer, etc., but there were way too many side trips for this to have been a really satisfying ending. Schuyler randomly flies out to meet her paternal grandmother, who accepted her with very little question-asking and suspicion, and then meets a half-sister that does the same. It’s heartwarming and I’m glad Schuyler is finally looking into her father’s family, but that probably should have been put in an earlier book to give this last one the oompf I thought it was going to have. It seemed out of place and frivolous. Also, while I love happy endings, I wish this ending were just a little more on the dark side; they were fighting Lucifer, after all; I thought there should have been more personal, heart-wrenching devastation, but that’s more of a personal preference than an actual problem, I guess, so moving on. :p This series as a whole is definitely one to check out. It provides an interesting perspective on the idea of vampires and history in general, with how they played a role in major events. It’s intriguing, but also has light, fluffy moments of romance and regular teen intrigue, which is a fun contrast. If you’re interested in vampires and angels, definitely give this series a try.

This book had my heart racing SO much! What an action packed adventure that kept me guessing the whole way through. I definitely want to read the Wolf spin off series now as well. I have to admit to being devastated through parts of this book, but to the reader who hasn't read it yet...keep going because in the end you will be pleased with how all the loose ends tie up. It might not have been what I was expecting, but it was GREAT! I'm so glad I picked up this series.

Whoa, I read this one so long ago, that I barely remember reading it. I read this during my spring break at the beginning of April, and while a satisfying conclusion to the Blue Bloods series, it wasn't anything spectacular. Not the best nor the worst of what I've read.
