My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the final installment of the Coldharbour Chronicles series and boy does it deliver! Richard Amos has created the most amazing world where magic and reality have merged, where the supernatural walks among us and trapped in a magic bubble is a city that is ground zero for an invasion from another reality - the reality of the Beast - bent on claiming our world as theirs.
In this final installment Jake Winter and his guardians finally face down the Head Beast herself, Lilisian, who has inhabited the body of the former lover of Jake's guardian - and lover - Dean, the half fae. Pregnant, Lilisian used the blood connection between the child and Dean to enslave him to her will in the last book. And in a bizarre twist of fate the White Eyed Guy who started Jake down the path to become the Weapon of the Goddess, turns out to be Jake's ancestor, _THE_ Hercules of old who clashed with the Titans, and he saved Jake in the last book by almost killing him. But he's definitely Team Jake now, even if he has a grudge against the Goddess.
So Jake has to defeat Lilisian, drive the Beast back to their own dimension, save his lover _and_ his lover's child and not die in the process... all in a day's work for the Weapon, right?
This book was a thrill ride and an amazing end to the series. There is a HEA, which made me happy, but not everyone got out alive, as is expected in a book series about the attempted take over of the world by a terrifying reality of monsters.
