He'll destroy everything and everyone to save her...including himself.Easton doesn't believe in love. He believes in death. Darkness. Sin. As a reaper for Hell, it's all he's known for more than four hundred years. So when he gets slapped with the job of training the boss's daughter, an angel that knows nothing but joy, he knows he's in for a world of trouble. Though he's made it clear he wants nothing to do with her outside of work, Gwen will do whatever it takes to get close to the dark and wounded reaper - even taint her angelic image and become a reaper herself. But in all her planning, she forgot to factor in one thing - how far the demons Easton doomed to Hell will go for revenge. When the dangers of Hell threaten Gwen, Easton will destroy everything and everyone to save her. But as the darkness closes in, will he be able to save himself?
The long-awaited finally of the “Kissed by Death” trilogy is here! “Descent” by Tara Fuller brings a great conclusion to this wonderful series. The reader is given the Angel of Joy and the Reaper from Hell. Gwen, the Angel of Joy is a bit different. She isn’t just content with being an angel, she wants to experience more than just her angelic self and joy. When Gwen sees a soul get reaped first hand it has a big effect on her. Now she wants to know more; learn more. Gwen is tired of being kept in her little bubble of joy, she wants to see what else is out in the world.
Easton is definitely Gwen’s opposite. Easton has a very special job that he has been doing for over four centuries. He is a reaper, which means he reaps the souls that are destined to be sent to hell. Now that Gwen has become some curious with Easton’s job, Easton has been given the task by his boss, whom is also Gwen’s father, to familiarise Gwen with the job but also why protecting her.
Then the unthinkable happens and Gwen and Easton get stuck in hell. Of course nothing seems to go well at all for the two of them, so they end up having to battle their way out. I think this story keeps up a pretty good pace keeping the reader on their toes. I have to say that the book is a bit darker than the first two but still really good. I think Fuller has done a great job with this series and I was definitely not disappointed in the finale.
I thought the characters were great and very easy to get to know which everyone knows is one of my main things to look at in a story. I feel like each character was able to grow and become a better version of themselves. I look forward to seeing what other young adult novels we will get from Tara Fuller.
