Publisher's Summary

One last time, the Phoenix will rise, and her flames will savage all who stand between her and those she loves.

The game is afoot, and I never saw it coming. A game of demons, angels and new breed of abnormal that is beyond anything else I’ve faced. A monstrosity that is bent on destroying every other abnormal on the planet. Only one thing can stop those who would wipe us out. A cursed weapon. Created by a person who has been dead a long time.

With an impossible task at hand, I can no longer face the darkness on my own. Even for me, the Phoenix, I need people at my back and my side. The clock is ticking as my team and I race to find the curse, the weapon, and the final pieces that will save the world. And when the darkness rises to consume us, I will have to face my greatest fears.

Will I survive my own flames, or will I burn the world and my own existence up to save those I love?

The end is the end

This is the finale of the Nix series and it so sad to see, I have absolutely fallen in love with Nix when I honestly didn't think this was my type of book. The characters are put through every challenge possible and leaves you on the edge of the seat. Can they rise from the darkness or will it swallow them up whole?

Khristine Hvam is Nix period. When I hear her voice Nix becomes so alive and real.

Epic conclusion!

Each book in this series just gets better and better!! I absolutely LOVE this book. The narrator is amazing. The narrator breathes life to the characters in the story and it’s like I’m right there beside them. Just brilliant!!
Be ready to be transported into the world of Nix and fallen angels. It’s definitely a addicting listen.
If you’re a fan of urban fantasy, and vigilante justice, pick this baby up!!

Love the series, but little disappointed with this one

Feel like it was rushed, decent ending, but left so much undone… several holes in there for me as well.. love the series and characters though

The End?

I hope this is the end of their stories. there are so many characters that have their own.
my only complaint on this one was it felt rushed. and I tend to think that might be more the editor pushing it or the publisher, I don't know. it seems like important things were sacrificed to finish it at a certain length.

Epic conclusion!

This was such and emotional, heart stopping. and action packed conclusion to Nix's story. Nix is such a fierce character. She does everything that she needs to even if it breaks her heart. These are always mystery and suprises that I do not see coming throughout these books. I love when that happens. I really love getting to see Alex and Riley for a little. Everything come together perfectly and love how this audible ended. I will miss Nix and this world, it is always an adventure. Kristine Hvam is such a great narrator. She brings the characters to life in such a entertaining way. Each voice is distinct and full of life.

MEN!

I’m honestly sad to see this series end, Nix has always been a favorite of mine. A mother that doesn’t WANT to rule the world, but will damn well do it if it means saving her children. Of course it doesn’t get by me that every single character that is wishy washy, tucks tail, or plays both sides in fact owns a peen. Men can’t be trusted, obviously! Easter and Emerald both kick ass as backup for Nix in what ends up being the ultimate showdown with Bazaxil and Gardreel. Galia is exactly who and what I hoped for so I am so very happy about that!
The only question I have is how Nix ends up getting to Bear, although I am very glad she did in the end.
This entire series was very much worth the read!

An awesome, action-packed story

Wow…….listening to this audible is amazing! This story is fast paced, filled with action and really hard to press stop. I love all the characters, but my favorite is Nix. She is really awesome, strong, protective, determined, brave and very skilled. She never hesitates, not even when her life is on the line. If I was in trouble and needed help, Nix would be the one I’d want on my side. This action-packed story is filled with danger, demons, monsters, magic, the Fallen, abnormals, talking guns, abilities, mystery, night of the bleeding stars, spells, rescues, suspense, family, friends, romance, the in-between, betrayal, sacrifice, battles, twists and turns and more!

Fast and harsh

A great story for the series! The team is together again - even a glimpse of Rylee and Alex from The Rylee Adamson series - and fighting for their and others lives. Enjoyed the story and the characters! The narrator did a great job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene. I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Amazing

I’m sad this is the final book in the series as I have enjoyed Nix so much. It was awesome to have the crossover characters I didn’t expect it at all. All the series are on my to be listened to again list not many books get on there but I have 3 of Shannon’s series in it.

4 star listen

4 star listen I really enjoy the nix series narrator.
We see Rylee in this book very briefly which I thought was adorable.

I was expecting this to be the final book but I doubt this is the case. No cliffhanger but story is not complete.

I love nix as a fmc she’s so strong and doesn’t need anyone apart from her kids. The rest even those who she’s loves can be sacrificed for the greater good.

Great series I strongly recommend it.
