18492859Sixth and seemingly final book in Fallen Angels series, Immortal is a good ending to this chapter in J.R. Ward’s writing history.

In Immortal we have a two for one battle in the final seven rounds of earth existence according to the creator.  Seven souls, seven rounds between heaven and hell, winner takes all.  Up until now things have been tight.  Good guys were winning, a win was traded off, the bad guys won a few round so when we start we’re five rounds down, score 3-2 in favor of hell.

It all comes down to Sissy and Jim, and what they’re willing to do for each other.  Of course in the end the good guys win, but it was a near thing and ended surprisingly quickly.  I thought there would be at least one more book but no.  Thankfully everyone lives happily ever after.  Colin and Nigel, Adrian and Eddie, Jim and Sissy.

I like the segway between this series and the Black Dagger Brotherhood, as they talk about the fallen angel Lassiter and at the end of the book God (who was been posing both as Dog and the demon Devina’s therapist) sends the two angels Eddie and Adrian to fetch Lassiter.

I smell a Fallen Angel/BDB crossover coming, as well as possible three more BDB books of Adrian, Eddie, and Lassiter stay in that series….

All in all a good ending to the series, looking doubly forward to what the next BDB book brings now…

But!  Until that day we must bide out time with other lovies, such as Bound by Flames by Jeannine Frost.  That’s up next.

Vlad must battle with a centuries-old enemy whose reach stretches across continents and whose strength equals his own. It isn’t like Vlad to feel fear, but he does…for Leila, because his enemy knows she is Vlad’s greatest weakness. As friend and foe alike align against him—and his over protectiveness drives Leila away—Vlad’s love for his new bride could be the very thing that dooms them both…
