Eden by Jamie McGuire (Providence #3)

She had seen the unspeakable. She would learn the unknowable. Now, she would fight the invincible. In the third and final installment of the Providence series, Nina Grey will marry the wrong man, carry the child that was never supposed to be born, and fight a war she can't win. Faced with the impossible task of protecting his new wife and unborn child against the throes of Hell, Jared Ryel is allowed no mistakes. Pressured to return the Naissance de Demoniac to Jerusalem, he revisits St. Ann's to learn the answers were in front of him all along. Together, they must survive long enough to let their child save them - and the world.
Initial Thoughts:
This is the final book in the trilogy, so I was hoping to get the answers I was looking for in the first two books. And hopefully a happy ending too.

The Pros:
Action. Freaking. Packed. Big upgrade on the other two books! The series started as a romance, and ended as a thriller.

All of the conclusions that I wanted to happen, happened. I don't want to give away too much.

The ending battle was intense. I really didn't know what was going to happen. I like when I can't figure out the author's next steps.

The culmination of all the different paranormal beings in this book was super intriguing. It was like seeing what you were taught in bible school come to life.

The Cons:
The same writing flubs she made in the first two. Gets me every time.

Some of Nina's friends sort of get shoved to the background. I liked Beth's character and missed her a lot in this book.

The hybrid baby thing was a little too Twilight for me

The Wrap Up: 4/5
A good way to round out a series. Full of action, a dash of romance, and a happy ending. What more could you want?

Favorite Quote:
