Read from November 05 to 10, 2012 — I own a copy

** spoiler alert ** I really liked the storyline of Finale, and it was really hard to put down, but I think it could have been written better in some parts at the end. However I did enjoy Scott and Marcie and Vee getting involved with the story more. I cried when Scott died but I think that when Patch died it could have been written with more emotion and not rushed off so fast. It felt like the story just skimmed over his death a little bit, and Nora had to get over it really fast, the emotion wasn’t there for me. However Scott’s death was written really well and it fit in to the flow of the story. I liked the new characters Dante and Blakely and how devilcraft was explained more and the effects were shown. I thought that in the end, all the loose ends weren’t really tied off. We didn’t find out what happened to Dabria or to Pepper Friberg and we only heard about Marcie’s death in passing. We also don’t know what happened to the rest of the nephilum or the fallen angels or how Nora’s mark made Patch able to feel. Although I expect that Detective Basso being an archangel might have made an exception. Overall, it was a satisfying ending to the series, but it could have explained more and maybe a bit more time could have been spent finishing the series and tying up loose ends.
All in all, congratulations Becca Fitzpatrick on writing a great series!
P.S I loved Patch's letter at the end, it made me teary!

Becca Fitzpatrick
“I personally believe Patch scared the pants off normal, and it took off running for the far side of the world.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Finale

“I want to wake up with you every morning and fall asleep beside you each night,” Patch told me gravely. “I want to take care of you, cherish you, and love you in a way no other man ever could. I want to spoil you — every kiss, every touch, every thought, they all belong to you. I’ll make you happy. Every day, I’ll make you happy.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Finale

“The antique, almost primitive band he held between his fingers caught the sunlight, glinting silver. “I found this ring shortly after I was banished from heaven. I kept it to remind myself of how endless my sentence was, how eternal one small choice can be. I’ve kept it a long time. I want you to have it. You broke my
suffering. You’ve given me a new eternity. Be my girl, Nora. Be my everything.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Finale

“If anyone were to find out—” I began.
Patch kissed me, hard, but with an amused glint in his eye. “If I get caught, it’ll mean the end of kissing you. Do you really think I’d risk that?” His
face grew serious. “I know I can’t feel your touch, but I feel your love, Nora. Inside me. It means everything to me. I wish I could feel you the same way
you feel me, but I have your love. Nothing will ever outweigh that. Some people go their entire lives never feeling the emotions you’ve given me.
There is no regret in that.”

“At last Patch spoke. His voice was so steady, so full of quiet admiration, it made me wonder if he could have known my secret all along. “Did
you know, the first time I saw you, I thought: I’ve never seen anything more captivating and beautiful?”
“Why are you telling me this?” I said miserably.
“I saw you, and I wanted to be close to you. I wanted you to let me in. I wanted to know you in a way no one else did. I wanted you, all of you. That
wanting nearly drove me mad.” Patch paused, inhaling softly, as though breathing me in. “And now that I have you, the only thing that terrifies me is
having to go back to that place. Having to want you all over again, with no hope of my desire ever being fulfilled. You’re mine, Angel. Every last
piece of you. I won’t let anything change that.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Finale

“You don’t deserve me,” he agreed. “You deserve better. But you’re stuck with me, and you might as well get over it.” Scooping me under him in one agile movement, he rolled on top of me, his black eyes all pirate. “I have no intention of letting you go easily, something to keep in mind. I don’t care if it’s another man, your mother, or the powers of hell trying to pry us apart, I’m not easing up and I’m not saying good-bye.”

“Boys everywhere take note: That was a kiss.”

“I dug the untraceable phone Patch had given me out of my handbag and dialled his number.
"I have a free couple of hours," I told him, walking toward my car, which was parked on the next block. "There's a very dark, very secluded barn in Lookout Hill Park behind the carousel. I could be there in fifteen minutes."
I heard the smile in his voice."You want me bad."
"I need and an endorphin boost."
"And making out in an abandoned barn with me will give you one?"
"No, it will probably put me in an endorphin coma, and I'm more than happy to test the theory.”

“Nice costume," he said.
"Ditto. I can tell you put alot of though into yours."
Amusement curled his mouth. "If you don't like it, I can take it off."
I tapped my chin thoughtfully. "That just might be the best proposal I've had all night."
"My offers are always the best, Angel.”
Becca Fitzpatrick, Finale
