  Hellsbane Hereafter, (Hellsbane 3) , Paige Cuccaro Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre: Romance, Fantasy/Paranormal The final book...and what a fun trilogy it’s been. Poor Emma Jane – it seems like she’s been used by both Heaven and Hell. Though she started off believing it was a simple good v evil battle, and knowing she was on the side of good, recent events have made her look differently at things. She’s lost so many friends to the battle and now she’s working for her father she’s made friends among his side too, and can’t bear losing any of them. I’ve always found that the way the Nephilims were treated as strange – the Bible tells us they were evil, some were monsters etc and they all needed to be killed, and would go straight to the Abyss. Well, how that ties up with the God is Mercy and Suffer Little Children to come unto Me etc I’ve never understood. Children can’t help who their parents are, and it seems wrong that if the angels who fathered them simply gave up them and their mothers and repented they could return to Heaven, while they who’d done nothing except be born were punished and their mothers, who did nothing but fall in love – or were raped – were left literally holding the baby....Double standards and certainly not Merciful. Archangel Michael here epitomises how I feel about these stories. so much for being Angelic, he and his brothers are judgemental, will torture and are horrifically cruel to get what they want, twist the truth to suit their needs, and want Emma Jane ( and others like her) to do their dirty work as they can’t possibly soil their own hands, and yet they call her and the others “it” and an abomination....Now she’s unable to return to human, as her father isn’t an ordinary angel, and has seen the supposed “good” side arrange some awful things she’s doubting herself. Her love for Eli though is true, and she’s feels so sad about his Falling, she knows he misses his brothers and they will have no contact with him. That’s what I mean about judgemental, he’s worked for them and for Heaven for centuries, and yet fall in love and all is over, he’s doomed, shunned by all his former angelic friends, except those that have also Fallen. Why did God make them capable of loving humans if he won't allow it to continue?  Jakar, her father wants her working for him, and Michael wants her spying on Jakar. Both sides make her promises, and all she really wants is for Eli to be able to return to the Grace she thinks he wants, to be able to be back with his lifelong friends. That’s true love when you’ll give up someone  to ensure their ultimate happiness, and it was heart-breaking seeing her try to arrange it, knowing all the while Michael would find some way to weasel out – he and the others of the Seven really were two faced. They infuriated me in earlier books and this one they really are shown in their true colours..She’s keeping a lot of secrets and struggling, trying to work out what’s best to do, and then finds out that humans are being used in the latest theatrics from both sides. who can she believe? What can she do?  Its clear do nothing isn’t an option and yet whichever way she turns people are going to get hurt.   I so feel for her, she’s been ( in my eyes) betrayed by her father, and by Heaven and the angels. All she’s ever done is try to do right, to help people, and yet its as if the two sides are just playing and care nothing about people dying, whether supernatural or human. Its a real struggle and I was as puzzled as Emma Jane much of the time. I kept thinking “what would I do” when she’s faced with some awful choices, has to decide who she can trust and how far, and what she can do to save people. When the final battle comes – that was so sad....I felt really tearful and gutted. That just couldn't  have happened could it? but yes it did...I was heartbroken along with her. Paige manages to pull off one final event though, and just when I was thinking how on earth could it end, as I couldn’t see how either group could win, without destroying humanity somehow she pulls off the perfect finale. Stars: Five, loved it, was swept along with the story and characters and it’s a perfect ending. ARC supplied by Netgalley and publishers

Emma Jane Hellsbane must choose between Heaven, Hell, or something all her making in Paige Cuccaro's Hellsbane Hereafter. I've been a big fan of Emma Jane since reading the prequel novella Commencement. It took me a little while to get into this book since it's been so long since I've read book two, but once I got into it a bit and remembered who was who and the like, I didn't want to put the book down. Emma Jane is strong and pretty badass, but Cuccaro really forces Emma Jane to grow in this last book of the series. We see new characters, old characters, and the return of characters we haven't seen since the prequel novella. My favorite thing about this series is no one seems completely good or evil. There are so many shades of gray, even among angels, the Fallen, and demons. The ending is really perfect for the series as well. I highly recommend Paige Cuccaro's Hellsbane series and Hellsbane Hereafter doesn't disappoint!

So just what is the right side? A good story about the battle between good and evil and choices that need to be made by the characters – and how their view of what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ depends on so many other factors. This is the third book in a trilogy but still works well as a standalone story. A nephilim, Emma Jane loves her angel partner, Eli, but consummating their love means that Eli is now a fallen angel – one of the angels she is supposed to kill! Her father is also a fallen archangel and he has plans for her . . . ones that conflict with her original goals. Now she’s confused as she can’t trust anyone but Eli and her love for him makes her really want to redeem him – whether he wants that or not! Life certainly isn’t a bed of rose petals for Emma – more a bed of thorns – as the two sides try to use her and her skills against others who were actually her friends. Emma needs to find out who is behind all the drama, angst and try her best to make the “right” choices, but will that be to save humanity or the angel/man she loves? Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley too for letting me read this book in exchange for this, an honest review.

I totally loved this series with some romance, action, mystery and all of the things that make a book a page turner. Add in angels, and demons, without getting too bogged down in religion, I didn't want to put it down. Go ahead and buy the prequel, Commencement... You won't regret it.

War has broken out between the Fallen and the Angels and Emma Jane is playing both sides. She is stuck between an impossible decision and goes back and forth trying to figure out what she should do, who she should trust and can she even trust herself. In the end her hand is forced and her choice was ultimately the right one it costs her a lot. This was a good ending to the story with and lets you know what happens with all of the characters you've come to care about in the story. There was a small logistical question I had regarding the state of Emma Janes life at the end but still a great ending.
