Goodreads Synopsis:
Will love conquer all?

Nora and Patch thought their troubles were behind them. Hank is gone and they should be able to put his ugly vendetta to rest. But in Hank's absence, Nora has become the unwitting head of the Nephilim and must finish what Hank began. Which ultimately means destroying the fallen angels - destroying Patch.

Nora will never let that happen, so she and Patch make a plan: lead everyone to believe they have broken up, and work the system from the inside. Nora will convince the Nephilim that they are making a mistake in fighting the fallen angels, and Patch will find out everything he can from the opposing side. They will end this war before it can even begin.

But the best-laid plans often go awry. Nora is put through the paces in her new role and finds herself drawn to an addictive power she never anticipated.

As the battle lines are drawn, Nora and Patch must confront the differences that have always been between them and either choose to ignore them or let them destroy the love they have always fought for

My Thoughts:

This was an extremely emotional way to end a great series. I am a huge fan of Patch and Nora  and I am seriously going to miss this snarky, condescending bad ass.

Over the course of the series Nora has grown significantly as a character and I really enjoyed that. Patch's undying love for Nora is one of my favorite things about these books. Even though his actions don't always show it, everything he has done has been to keep Nora safe.

New character's are introduced in Finale and old characters that we have grown to love surprise us in this great ending. Nora is tested more now than ever but does she have the strength to do what needs to be done?

There is so much drama, betrayal, deception and love in Finale. I honestly do not know how to write this review without adding spoilers and you all know how much I hate spoilers. But to everyone who loves this series, I thought this was a great way for Becca to end it.

There were moments when I wanted to scream and pull my hair out but I understand why Becca left it this way, even if it hurt. So what I am trying to say is that if you have not yet read Finale you need to. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
