If you've been following along and reading the Hail Raisers series in order then this book is loooong awaited and much anticipated. The spectre of Dante Hail has been dangled in front of us from book 1 and we knew it was going to be dramatic, angsty and rather bleak. If not and you picked this up now, you CAN totally read it as a standalone (but I wouldn't recommend to do that and miss the goodness that the rest of the books offer!) However the blurb gives you a pretty good idea what the tone of the book will be - although I don't really think it totally does the story justice as there is SO much more to it than what it gives away...
Dante Hail has had a tough, terrible tragedy take over his life and he has been struggling for years to recover. But the surprise arrival of his daughter Mary drags him out of his grief and self imposed exile from his family. It also brings Cobie into his life in an indirect way and as he rebuilds his life he finds himself, reluctantly, drawn to her and into the trouble she finds herself in as well.
Cobie has also had really horrible luck in her life - she is one of THOSE people - who seems to have everything bad happen to her. Really bad. She is almost at the end of her rope and literally cannot find the will to go on - for what? Then Dante and Mary enter her life and drag her kicking and screaming back to the land of the living. Of course, nothing in her life is ever easy and this is no exception.
Prepare for this book to drag you through ALL the emotions and leave you rather wrung out on the other side. But of course, the author gives goodness with the bad and moments of pure humor too. In all the bleakness there was light and love and a reason to carry on. I really loved it and totally recommend as a great read!!
Dante is barely existing after that devastating loss of his family. Everyone is worried about him. In drops Mary, a daughter he didn't know existed until her mother, who is dying of brain cancer shows up on his doorstep. Much to his reluctance Mary is bringing him back into the land of living. She is such a sweet little girl. That had me at times saying 'aaahhh' as I read along in the story.
Also showing up in his life is Colbie, Mary's mother's best friend. Life hasn't been kind to Colbie either. When she's faced with some difficult news of her own Dante doesn't let her face them alone.
Dante and Colbie's attraction to each other is something that Dante fights against due to the tragedy of his past.
There is another party doing his best to keep them from having a HEA.
This book is very well written. I was absolutely gutted by Dane's loss of his family. His up and down emotions of moving on with his life were so realistic and pulled me that much more into the story. The characters are well developed and have great dialogue. I love the twist of intrigue and suspense, too. My favorite type of story to read.
I love that we got to know Rafe a little more. Just enough that it has me craving for more.

This mans story just gutted me.
I knee ever since reading about the tragedy that happened to his wife and kids, back in Dixie Wardens Rejects that once Dante got his own book that it would be hard on the heart. And I was completely right. You couldn't help but feel emotional when your reading this one. Right from the start wh. Reading Marianne's parts, your heart just broke more than it already was with what you already knew about Dante's story. But, then you wee introduced to Mary, and hope was starting to form for the lost man. Then Cobie walked onto his life and that hope grew even stronger.
Dane's pain and struggle to live was one that anyone that lost a love would feel. Could he move on, or was he going to continue to just be. Then when he started to let himself think that he could, he grew angry with himself. Thus pushing the person that he was letting in away. That was the turning point for him, and he needed that to let himself start to actually allow himself to be happy. That is what Lily would have wanted.
There was that one person that was not wanting tho happiness to be. And it was this push of someone wanting to take the chance of happiness away that got him to open his eyes and heart.
Mary was Dante's, Hail Mary that started making him cone back to the world of the living.
Codie was Dante's, Saving Grace that finally brought him back to his family and to the light.
The character Rate was present thought out this one and some things started to cone to light about his character. But, then some things were still being held back. Now I really can't wait for his story to find out more about this secretive character.
I'm sad that this series has come to an end. I am glad that Dante finally got an HEA.

Hail Mary was an emotional roller coaster of a ride. Gods only know how bad things had gone for the eldest Hail brother when he lost his family and I'm sure a second chance at life was not something that appealed to him never mind something he considered but that's exactly what Dante Hail got in the form of his little girl, Mary.
I adored Cobie, she was strong AF, had been through so much but still had so much to offer. Her connection with Mary was heartwarming and I loved reading scenes where they were together.
Now, you get no points for guessing that Hail Mary was a definite 'rip your heart out, throw it around, stomp on it and just when you thought you'd finally get it back, broken but fixable, it was squished again' read but gods, I loved every single minute of it - even when I wanted to kick Dante in the nuts for being so stubborn and stoopid.....
A fantastic end to one of my favourite series, I cannot wait for what Lani has lined up for us next!
5 solid 'heartbreaking but worth it' stars!!!
I think everyone assumed Dante's book would be heart wrenching. We've had teasers of him through the series so I had an idea but it was nowhere near the reality, it was so much more. The grief, the hurt, anger it all was almost to much. The journey was a hard and one that hit so close to home. We all experience loss so the emotion that grabs you is almost unbearable it's raw.
Dante and Cobie's journey is bittersweet. It's a battle of the toughest kinds. I was a blubbering mess of hormones through 95% of this story. I loved them hard! It's written seemlessly and while it's not an easy read it's impactful. It's one I'll remember and one I'll go back to.
I can't wait for Rafe and Janie's book. Especially after that ending!.
