Third instalment of the Heavenly Series, Absolution was everything you could have asked for in the last book in the series. Jennifer wraps up the series with an ending that is heartfelt, filling and completely satisfying. Absolution is the perfect end to a fantastic trilogy.
Zoe still fights Albert for her soul..Her brother knows her secert and her boyfriend to and Albert constantly challenges Zoes will to survive and protect the ones she loves without giving in, her will is challenged, her fight

I have been putting off reading this book for quite some time. If I love this series so much, why on EARTH would I put off buying and reading what could be the final book of the HEAVENLY series? That is very simple. I DO NOT WANT THIS SERIES TO EVER END. Seriously. I have fallen in love with this series. Jennifer Laurens has created a story that seems so real to me. Good VS Evil will always prevail in our world. It is a universal symbol. Jennifer has taken Good vs Evil to a whole new level. The ...more

Absolution. Absolutely full of varieties. Everything was so mixed up. Human emotions crammed with heavenly light. Imagine that.
The book started where "Penitence" (the second book) left off. There were a some things I didn't like about the book but there were also tons of things I loved about it.
First off, the things I loved about it. I liked how Zoe decided to fight off evil and protect her family against it..and in the end, she found herself being honest with them and shared what she saw and ev

I honestly don't know where to start with this one. For some reason I always find it really difficult to write reviews for Jennifer's Heavenly series. It made me think as to why I have such trouble expressing my opinion about these books. If you have read my reviews of Heavenly and Penitence, you will see that this series has touched me on a very personal level and I think that is the reason I stumble when I am writing the reviews. it makes me feel like I am exposing my 'soul' so to speak. I can ...more

I have been pondering on what I could say for Absolution that I haven’t already said about the other two books for a week now. I have drawn the conclusion to keep it real and share how it has made me look differently on life. For me this is so much more than being a love story it is more of a message on how you should treat others and live your life. I feel like Jennifer Laurens sends a huge message to her readers and I hope everyone can take what I did from these three beautifully written books ...more

What a wonderful ending to a great trilogy! I finished reading this book while on a quick road trip and I couldn't put it down. My husband kept complaining because I was ignoring him, but I so completely engrossed in this book that I couldn't even respond much to him. I was so in love with Mattias through the entire storyline, but by the middle of this book I was also rooting for Weston. What a beautiful way to say goodbye and move on with one and yet be someday destined for the other. I loved, ...more

Jennifer Laurens' wonderful descriptive style kept me engrossed once again. As the final book in the Heavenly series, I thought it rounded out quite well. I kept thinking how far the MC, Zoe had come since the opening of the first book. The character development was great, not only in her but also in Weston - they developed while still maintaining flaws. I also loved the way the spiritual aspects were woven into the book - showing spiritual truths through the story without being preachy.

The title is very fitting compared to what happened in this book. It was fast paced and the ending was heartfelt. Zeo is battling against Albert, Matthias' father who wants nothing more than to claim Zoe's soul. And to top it off, her stoner brother knows about her secret: she can see good and evil spirits. Her family, boyfriend, and best friend are in danger and Zoe is the only one who can save them f

I am going to start this review by saying WOW about the Cover!!!! The title of Absolution is so fitting for this third book in this epic paranormal fantasy! The first book, HEAVENLY and the second book, PENITENCE where so amazing that again just like the end of the 1st to the beginning of the 2nd book I was so looking forward to this:

It was ab-so-lute-ly amazing. The series is now one of my favorite series. It is sort of sad, but the story line, writing all of it is awesome. I wish I had a guardian angel like Zoe did..but we don't get to chose ours, which is still alright with me. Definitely recommend this to anyone that loves books about angels and demons:)

I wish I could give more stars to this series...its sooo very good. and of course I bawled like a little baby at the end. but was also very happy with the ending. Definitely going to look in to Mrs Laurens other reads!

What I don't understand why would you chose a guy who almost raped you over a heavenly being?????? That's is all I'm going to say about that!

Anyone that knows me in the blogosphere knows that I am a HUGE fan of Jennifer Lauren’s books and so to say I was eager to read Absolution, the final book in the Heavenly series, is an understatement at best. I feel honoured to have read this before the publication date and guys, believe me when I tell you that you will not be disappointed. Before I go any further, if you have NOT yet read Heavenly and the most awesome sequel ever Penitence then...1. Where have you been? 2. You are SERIOUSLY mis ...more

I really love the Heavenly series by Jennifer, and this book did not let me down. Absolution had everything that I hoped for and more! It is such a story of hope, repentance, forgiveness, and true love. It not only demonstrates a familial love, working through troubles and coming out stronger, but what love in friendship should be like, as well as romantic love.
Zoe has really matured and blossomed and she deals with everything that bombards her in such a loving and awesome way. I really have g

I’m now a few chapters in. It starts just where Penitence left off, on the day of Brady’s funeral. Zoe and Chase are on their way to Krissy’s house, to talk to Krissy who seemed upset about something. As you may recall from Penitence, Krissy’s father appears to be one evil man, if judged by the many black spirits that constantly encircle his persona. Krissy refuses to tell Zoe what is bothering her, but it I have a strong feeling her father has something to do with it.

Have you ever had a piece of cake or your favorite pastry, sitting in front of you waiting to be devoured? It looks so delicious and so satisfying that you almost don't want to eat it because then it will be gone. So then you decide to eat it, but instead of shoveling it onto your mouth you take your time, savor each bite. That's what reading this book was like for me. I'll give you another example, since its the holidays I'll use Christmas. When you're a kid, or at least it was always this way ...more

I drew this book out for weeks, because I just didn't want this story to end. It was difficult, and once I got about halfway through, I could no longer put it off. I had to finish it in one sitting. Loved it.

We get more of Weston, which I absolutely love! He's a dream. Honestly, I think I've said this before, but I don't think Zoe deserves him. Her constant back and forth between him and Matthias continued into this book, and it still annoyed me. I didn't feel it was fair to Weston in any way. I

When I first started this series with Heavenly I fell in love with this series as much as Zoe fell in love with Matthias. I waited and waited and read Penitence, then I waited and waited some more and read Absolution. The first thing I can say about Absolution is that I have never cried over a book a few days later just THINKING about the book, until I finished Absolution. I can also say that the Heavenly series is the only one that I know EVERYONE I suggest it too will LOVE it the way I do. I r ...more
