Summary: May Contain Spoilers! “People will die.”

Locked doors are opening, and uncanny creatures are tumbling through mysterious portals from Mag Mell, the world-between-worlds, into the streets of Chicago. The Dark Man has marked Aiden with a new song that’s scared him badly, and a frightening new group of sĂ­dhe is lurking nearby.

Teagan knows this is war, and she must protect her family. She leaves her flesh and bones behind to join Finn in hunting the evil beings across the city. Meanwhile, their relationship is heating up—almost faster than they can control. But he is still bound to fight goblins his entire life . . . and by blood she is one of them now.

Then the gateway to Mag Mell cracks open again, and the Wylltsons find themselves caught in a trap. As her loved ones begin to die, Teagan realizes that she must destroy the Dark Man and his minions once and for all in order to save those who remain . . .
. . . before it is too late.  (Taken from Goodreads)

Thoughts: I have been following Finn and Teagan’s journey since the very beginning and having just finished the third and final book in the series I can say that I am going to miss their adventures.

The story starts off action packed and then slows down a little bit but the story kept moving along throughout the book because there was a lot of plot to resolve but it all got done.

There were a lot of surprises in this book, let’s just say that I was surprised about some of the events.  I don’t really want to give away spoilers so I don’t really want to go into depth with this review.

I particularly loved the quest that Teagan’s dad left for Finn to complete which just made me laugh so much.  You’ll have to find out what it is by reading the book yourself though.

I really enjoyed When the Stars Threw Down Their Spears and the entire Goblin Wars trilogy.  I will definitely be keeping out for more books by Kersten Hamilton in the future.
