Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Fans of Jones's "Darklight" series (St. Martin's Griffin) will be delighted with this final installment. Lorelei McAlister-destined to stop an impending war between humans and demons and in love with the Angel of Death-adopts an alias, leaves her hometown in New Mexico to protect her loved ones, and takes up residence at a Maine boarding school. While visions are nothing new to to the teen, her latest depict not only people's deaths but the end of the world. Lorelei is also aware that she is being followed by someone who knows her true identity (and that she carries a demon in her soul). The feisty heroine enlists her friends' help (including that of a brooding Nephilim) to fulfill her role as the Prophet, making this story line darker than the previous books'. The characters are more focused, well-developed, and witty in this entry, and the dialogue is quick and fun. Loose ends are tied up somewhat satisfyingly, and the surprise conclusion will not disappoint. Because this novel is confusing for those who have not read the earlier titles, libraries looking to deepen their paranormal romance collections will want to make sure that these are available.—Karen Alexander, Lake Fenton High School, Linden, MI

From Booklist

Bring your orange soda and get ready for the snarkiest apocalypse ever. In this third title in Jones’ fantasy trilogy, Lorelei McAlister has been sent into hiding at an elite boarding school in Maine—as far from the doomsday events in Riley’s Switch, New Mexico as possible. But her visions confirm her worst fears: the world is going to end, and she cannot stop it. So she returns home to make her final stand with her friends and family (can you say, “deus ex machina”?). The book benefits from its trim page count and moves at a brisk pace. Lorelei still indulges in too much hand-wringing, but with the Angel of Death on her side, rapture may be secured. Grades 9-12. --Kara Dean

I loved every word of this book! It being the third and last in the Darklight Trilogy I was anxious for the ending,on how Darynda was going to wrap it all up. I was enthralled with the story just as I was for each of the other two books, heck with all of her books!

Lorelei is hilarious, and when you add Glitch and Brooke it is wonderful the things that are said. I really loved getting to know Kenya she was a wonderful addition and I thought it brilliant the huge role she actually played. I think the reason the reality in Darynda's books are so addictive is that even though they have a feel of reality to them in the midst of the turmoil the humor shines through like a rainbow after the storm.

Truly I laughed out loud, I sniffled back tears and most of all I couldn't put it down until I devoured the story completely! Jared is yummy yummy and even Cameron brooding and all is smokin'. I wish I had me some Jared and what I would give up to have the Angel of Death as my own! The emotion in this book makes me long for an epilogue novella, a 'what happened after and who is loving on whom'. Oh in a perfect world *wink*

Anyway even without the novella, the Trilogy far surpassed my expectations and after reading Charley Davidson they were somewhat high!

Love love love and I recommend to all and of course give 5 huge Angel of Death stars (you know hot, sexy, smoking, shiny, need I go on?)

This book was the perfect ending to a phenomenal series. The ending was not at all what I expected, but it was definitely satisfying. A must read!

ARC Review:Was Given this from the Publisher for an Honest review.

Watch out world Darynda Jones is taking over and death has never looked so hot!

If you have not picked up the first book Death and the Girl Next Door you are seriously missing out! This 3rd book is just well amazing and is defiantly my favorite! The twists in this story will throw you for a loop and you really have to take a moment to stop and think before you have that AH HA moment! Well at least I did anyway. I personally love a book that makes you think and boy I did not see a few things coming that surprised me. yes there is a little romance and a lot more action from the start of this book then the last ones. Oh and yes you will want to bring tissues because I know I cried a little reading this and was a little devastated till I fished the book to tell you the truth.

Death, Destruction, and the end of the world really sums up what this books is about and all hell breaks loose literately. No matter how far Lorelei runs away she can not escape her destiny or without someone trying to killer her either. If this person succeeds in killing her the world will end and it wont be pretty. Help will come from the most unlikely of places and she must do everything in her power to save the world and everyone she loves.

I don't want to go into too much detail because I want you to go out and read it for yourself. So now off you go read it you know you want to!

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:
*Copy gifted for an honest review

Death and the Girl He Loves was a nice conclusion to the DARKLIGHT trilogy. Was it my favorite of the series? No. Was it interesting, compelling, and worth recommending. Absolutely!

This installment was quite a bit more somber and serious than the previous two. Since the moment Lorelei found out about her heritage, she has known that she was the key to stopping a war, however, she never knew how, or when, and nobody could (or would) tell her. As the end draws near, Lorelei's stress ratchets ever higher, and her self doubt skyrockets. Add to that the fact that she's literally foreseen the deaths of everyone she loves and is convinced that she just CAN'T stop what's to come, and she's kind of a mess. As she and the rest of the gang try to come up with ways to literally stop the apocalypse and change fate, she systematically works through these complex layers and attempts to find her center. While I enjoyed all of that, found the seriousness necessary, and loved the journey and growth of the characters, I missed the snark and wit. There just weren't as many one liners, snippy comebacks, silly escapades and practical jokes as there were in the previous 2 books, and while my brain understood the necessity for the solemnity, my heart longed for the level of Darynda Jones snark and with that I've come to crave.

I will say this, where the book 'grew up' and swapped fun for seriousness in my opinion, it didn't turn into a stodgy old biddy shut in at home. The level of action was as great, if not better, than the previous 2 books. In addition, the suspense and surprise in this installment were amazing.

MIND. BLOWN

Can I just leave it at that? I can't even begin to pull together what this book has made me feel and think but I suppose I should try.

I loved this series from the beginning. It makes me sad to say goodbye to these characters to whom I've grown attached.

Lorelei knew this day was coming. It has been foretold for centuries that she would stop this war from happening but that doesn't mean she was prepared for it. If the visions of what was to come could bring her to her knees, how was she supposed to handle the real thing? Doubts plague her. Everyone seems to have faith except Lorelei. She's seen the gruesome deaths of her family and friends and knows failure is not an option, but without a plan she sees no way out.

Darynda has worked her magic yet again with this wonderful conclusion to the Darklight series. I'm reading along in the midst of the action, gripping my kindle, heart racing, on the verge of tears screaming NOOOOOOO. What are you doing? This isn't how it's supposed to be!
Then in true Darynda fashion TWIST! I gotta say, I did NOT see that coming! I fought it for as long as I could. Nope, this is not how it's gonna end. She'll throw another twist in there, I'm sure of it. Then once I got to 98% and nothing changed I figured I might as well accept it. This was how she was ending it. I had to accept it. This was how my beloved characters would spend the rest of their days.

I have a love/hate relationship with the ending of this book. It was masterfully done. It's something no one will expect, but I'm not ready to say goodbye! The way Darynda ended this book, I feel she could continue on with these characters. I really hope she does. I'm not sure I want a world that is devoid of the shenanigans of this rag tag bunch.

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
