Last Rite by Lisa Desrochers
In this final installment of the thrilling, edgy Personal Demons series, the battle between Heaven and Hell has become critical, and Frannie Cavanaugh is right at the center of it.
With the help of the powerful angel Gabe and demon-turned-mortal Luc, Frannie has been able to stay one step ahead of the forces of Hell. But when the demons killed Frannie's best friend and destroyed her brother, they raised the stakes. If Frannie wants to keep her family and friends safe, she knows she has no choice but to go on the run.
Their best defense is the power Frannie has been struggling to master, but her attempts to hone her skill go horribly awry. If Frannie doesn't learn fast, the consequences could be devastating--even apocalyptic.
What happens when you can't outrun Hell...or trust the ones you love?
Last Rite was the conclusion to this series. And it was awesome! The story took so many crazy turns that I never saw coming! Both Gabe and Luc struggle with their feelings for Frannie and trying to the the right thing. Frannie's family also played a much bigger role in this book and it was nice to see. Some big decisions were made here and not everyone survives!
Like I said both Gabe and Luc are struggling with their feelings for Frannie. They are torn between doing the right thing to keep her safe and having broken hearts. This left me yelling at the book at both of them when they were being stupid boys! AH! So frustrating. Because it usually ended up with everyone feeling bad and heartbroken! I don't want to ruin the story by saying who she ends up with so you will just have to read it to find out!
I really enjoyed how Frannie's family played a bigger role in this story. They were awesome characters! Maggie and Grace proved to be very interesting. Faith was also a really good character. I felt so bad for her! Especially at the end.
The ending of this story will blow your mind! It was such a perfect ending. I couldn't have been happier! I am sad to see the series end but, I guess all good things come to an end. This was such a good series, I would recommend it to anyone!
