J. R. Ward, the sixth and final book in the Fallen Angels series, a paranormal romance. Blurb from book: The Creator invented the game, and the stakes are nothing less than the fate of both the quick and the dead: seven souls, seven crossroads—each an opportunity for salvation or damnation. Coming into this sixth round, reluctant savior Jim Heron has compromised himself, his body, and his soul, and even still, he’s on the verge of losing everything… And that includes Sissy, the innocent he freed from Hell. Jim’s determined to protect her—but this makes her a weakness the demon Devina can exploit. With Sissy once again in danger, and Jim torn between the game and the woman he’s sworn to defend, evil’s ready to play dirty and finally claim Jim for her own. As the war comes into its final chapters, humanity’s savior is prepared to do anything it takes to win—and that includes embarking on a suicide mission into the very darkest shadows of Purgatory. True love is Jim’s only hope for survival—and victory. Bit can a man with no heart and no soul be saved by something he doesn’t believe in? As this series progressed, each book got better. This last one definitely the best. You know, it’s hard to read something slow when all you want to do is read it! Devina, as evil as one can be, cracked me up with her OCD. I never liked a villain more. While this series ended, I get the feeling some of these characters will continue on in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series (yay!). I look forward to that next book. Spring, I believe. I’m ready!
Now for a bonus VIDEO! Saw this and just had to share. That's my high school! And you know what? It really hasn't changed all that much.
The funny thing is, at the beginning of the video, where the band is playing, I'm thinking, "I haven't heard that song in ages. What is it?" Well, DUH! It was our fight song! Yeah, I really AM getting old.
(I also just learned that Katy Perry went to my high school. How did I not know this? Hmmm...)
So... What have you discovered recently that flabbergasted you?
