When we last left Luce and Daniel, they had fought a battle with the evil Outcasts in her parents' backyard. Luce has found herself conflicted by her love and lives with Daniel. Needing proof of why they live the nightmare of her flaming death over and over again, she steps into an Announcer (smoky little portals that can be used to see or go to a person's former lives) to find out what all these former lives are about. She starts off in Russia during WWII where she sees how painful her death is for Daniel each and every time he loses her. She goes to Italy during WWI, England, Egypt, China, and many more. Each time, Luce learns a little more about herself and her love for Daniel.
Along the way, she picks up an odd little helper in the Announcer named Bill. He is a small little gargoyle thing that proves to be helpful in finding both her way and the meaning she has been searching for. He helps her blend in with the time period, guides her into meeting her former selves, and even helps her "cleave" with her former body, becoming that person through the last moments of their life. All of this helps Luce realize everything Daniel has done is because of his undying love for her. What she doesn't know, is he is following her through the Announcers, trying to find her. At her first life, Bill convinces her it would be best to release her soul from the curse, thereby releasing her love of infinite lives from the curse that destroys him with every reincarnation. What she doesn't realize at first is Bill might have his own agenda that might not be as genuine as Luce thinks. Can Daniel find her in time? Can they break the curse after all?
Oh this was such an interesting book! Every pair of chapters was a new place. The first chapter would be Luce arriving in the former life, and then the second would be Daniel's arrival. Seeing the lives from two different perspectives really explained the whole story in a way the reader can appreciate. Then their two journeys differ a bit, and you see how their two lives are entwined, but also how much they need each other. The love between Luce and Daniel is epic, and nothing, including a bratty 12-year old French king, a huge class discrepancy, or a Mayan sacrifice, can keep them apart. At different points in the last two books, I became annoyed with either Luce, for being too petulant or Daniel, for being too vague, but this book made me love both of them at the same time. This was the perfect lay-up for the final book, and I simply cannot wait to read it!
As she travels from Announcer to Announcer and goes further and further into her past she picks up a Gargoyle named Bill who says he is there to help her. He never lets himself be seen by the angels in any of the lifetimes, but he pulls strings and makes it so she can safely live in each of the times for either a few moments or for days. Something about him feels wrong, but she is so glad to have someone with her on this journey that she doesn't always see or feel the discrepancy. He tells her the way to solve her current problem is to kill her soul so she can go back to Daniel in her present and she will be safe.
Daniel meanwhile is racing after her, always arriving just a little bit too late, but also seeing their shared past from a new perspective. Sometimes he visits his old self, sometimes he does not, but he does take the time to visit the gathering in Heaven when the angels were told they needed to chose a side, either that of Lucifer or that of the Throne and he tells both his old self and all the angels something they need to hear.
Bill has his day towards the end and things are all set up for book four, the final book in the series.
