From the Back Cover
The great battle has finally arrived, where love will be tested…and a world will be won.
A BATTLE FOR THE AGES
As a vampire and a warrior, Leto Distra is deadly. But after years of being forced to drink dying blood, he is now part beast―a wild savage thing lurking beneath the surface. With war on the horizon, Leto is determined to help the Guardians of Ascension destroy the enemy who turned him into a monster. And there's only one woman who can help him.
A LOVE FOR ALL TIME
Grace Albion is certain that she's meant to be with Leto, but their future may be cut short by the impending battle. Now Grace must embrace her obsidian flame powers―and bind her powers with Leto's―if they're ever going to survive. With the fate of the world at stake, they must tap into powers they never knew they had…and unlock their deepest passions.
"Sexy, cool, edgy romantic fantasy…Prepare to be enthralled."
―New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian

I must take a moment to ask Ms. Roane...What about the last remaining warriors? Will they get books?
Love the entire redemption of not only Leto but Casimer as well. I loved the way the stories of Leto, Casimer, and Grace were so intertwined and required to not only survive but defeat the terrible Greave's. I just gotta say he has some bad times ahead of him in the pools, eeek.
And how about those Obsidian Flame gals and Endelles transformation?? Total badasserie !!
I was a bit nervous about Grace initially. She willingly moved into a convent. The World of Ascension books are highly sexed and very sensual. I wondered how Grace and her lifestyle would play into that. I was not disappointed. Grace may in fact be an ascended vampire, but she transforms more than any of the previous heroines. She is the final member of the obsidian flame triad.
I was blown away by Endelle. Something was done to her towards the end of Obsidian Flame. This affects her in so many ways. I've enjoyed Endelle from the very beginning. She is warrior rough and the leader of this breather of warriors that she directs in an attempt to protect all of Second Earth from the evil mechanisms of Greaves. Endelle is as tough as her warriors. I can't wait to read more of her.
I loved the fact that so many of the heroes and heroines from the previous books in the series had such large roles in Gates of Rapture. The Warriors of the Blood and the breh's of the mated ones pulled together to put up a tremendous fight against Greave's and his power mongering ways. They even had assistance from several unexpected fronts.
I was thoroughly pleased with the wrap-ups and revelations that were made in Gates of Rapture.Read more ›
Totally enjoyed all the books.
I feel like a lot of people have this series confused with angels, but these are truly vampires, they just live in different dimensional worlds and have different ways of mating. Oh, and how I love the way these vampires mate… (Dragging mind out of gutter LOL). Anyhow, this story has a lot of action that will leave you on the edge of your seat. I loved how everything went down with Graves and the death vampires and how just about every character was a part of the whole scheme of things.
Leto and Grace are perfect together. To those that have read book 5, we were left with Grace leaving with Caimir, but we all knew she belonged with Leto. When Leto turns into the beast he keeps calling for her, and what do you think happens when she finally answers his call? Well you have to read the book to find out. All I can say is I wish I had a Leto too. Grace’s role in the story is wonderful. Once she finds out what she can do she will stop at nothing to do her best.
Casimir, has an awesome strong role in this story and I loved the direction the author took with him and his powers. I hope to read more about him and Patience one day.
I have to give Caris Ronae huge credit here. The publisher pulled the plug on this series way before it was intended. I felt Caris did an OUTSTANDING job delivering what looks like the closing of the series.Read more ›
