The conclusion to the Heven and Hell series.

I’ve been beautiful. I’ve been ugly. I’ve died. I’ve been brought back. I’ve had abilities awakened within me. My strength has been tested. My beliefs have been tested.

Yet I stand.

What’s next when you’ve pretty much experienced it all?

The end.

Sam and I are picking up the pieces. We’re trying to come to terms with all we’ve los

“But destiny waits for no one.”

This was an okay story, but as big of a Cambria fan that I am, I really didn’t enjoy this story much.

The characters in this were okay, but I didn’t love them this time. Why Heven thought inviting Kimber to stay with her when they were barely speaking was a good idea I don’t know. And why she told Sam she’d still love him, even if he became a mass-murderer, I don’t know.

“You could get out of this car right now and kill everyone in the parking lot, Sam. When you w

This was a decent end to the series.

I've liked Heven and Sam from the start, and that didn't change in this installment. They're so cute together!
Kimber has annoyed me in the last few books, and she got worse in this one. I really couldn't stand her.

I didn't like this one quite as much as book two and three, but it was still an enjoyable read, which ended the series nicely.

I'll defiantly be reading some of Cambria's other books.

Have you ever read a book/series that you've been away from for so long but you once you get back into you feel like your home? That's how I feel about Heven & Hell! I've been with with these characters for a while and their really close to my heart! I was really sad when it was announced that Renegade would be the last book of the series but bittersweet at the same time becaue it'll never be over! With all this being said I would like to give you my review of this book.. so here we go! What ...more

So sad to see this series end. Loved Sam and Heven!

Favorite quotes:

"What does it say about me that my boyfriend hauls a fire extinguisher everywhere we go?" I asked.

"That you're really hot?" he said. I swear there was a hint of a smile on his lips.

"Proud of you," Sam mouthed and I actually blushed under his pride. Apparently I could be a total badass but still fall prey to girlish tendencies when my boyfriend paid me a compliment.

His voice floated through my mind. My heart's been yours from the

Oh how I have missed Sam and Heven. Truly I have come to think of them as friends. I care about them, their happiness, the outcome for them both and it is so hard saying goodbye to them after feeling like they have become a part of me, which is why, I am ashamed to admit, it has taken me so very long to pick up this last book.

Their last book.

How will I ever be able to say goodbye?

I kept thinking if I put it off long enough I wouldn't have to admit that it was almost all over. But then I reali

Holy cow!!! The very best of Heven & Hell was saved for last. Wow. Wow. Wow. It's totally the perfect balance of humor, suspense, drama and romance!!! You've got to love this book!

So what did I love? Well first: the characters. I love the complexity and variety of characters of the Heven & Hell world. I knew Gran had a secret!!! Also, you'd think the character growth (which I love about YA literature) would be complete so many books into a series, but Heven and Sam continue to surprise.

This is my favorite out of the whole series. I was reading it steady until I hit about halfway through & I couldn't put it down. My eyes were glued to my kindle- I couldn't read fast enough.

I love how Sam and Riley describes how the change and shift come over them. Made me want to shake off imaginary fur.

The loyalty of Gran to her family and the secrets she harbors are eye opening and gives insight to Heven's mom and dad.

The romance? Gosh, it made my face flush with excitement and shyness.

There is going to be a spinoff series for Riley, right? He's gonna be totally badass and grow wings for his hound and fly away to heaven and kick all those angel bastards' asses, right?

I am not at all ready to be finished with this series and these amazing characters. :'( God help me.

What can I say? This book rocks. Best book in the series so far. And if you've read the first three books - prepare to be mindfucked completely.

I was upset when Cambria announced that this would be the last book in the series, but she did a great job tying it all together. I would be perfectly ok if decided to write a spin off with Riley as the MC.. hint, hint! Don't miss this one!!!

Heven watches her fellow students jostling in the crowded hallways. She wishes that she could go back to the days when things were normal and simple, but then she wouldn't have Sam. Her life would be incomplete without Sam! Things are chaotic and as dangerous as ever for Heven. She knows that she must return to Hell and free all the souls trapped there, including her mother. She must also confront Beelzebub once and for all before he hurts someone else. No matter what, she has her friends and of ...more

So it ends

This series was amazing. I thought I had read all the Cambria Hebert books available on KU, so I was so surprised when I found these. The story is quick paced and action packed. But it is the dialogue that pulls you into the characters and gives you their personality.
This book series is definitely YA and suitable for an early to mid-teen with no worry about mature content.

Oh, where to start. I mean, Cam, if I had your number, I would have called you with death threats I think. You tore apart my heart just a few times. You made me laugh. You made me cry. You also made me completely shocked… I NEVER would have thought that for Riley, but I think I underestimated him. I have become so utterly proud of Heven, she found herself. I am so happy for Sam, that when he let go, Heven could float by herself. I will start by saying I am really happy most got their happy endin ...more

I have to say that I have been with this series since the beginning and so sad to see if end but boy does the author end it so well. I don't think there could have been another way to finish this series and tie up all the loose ends and still make the readers happy. The author really brings it in this final book and left me satisfied with the ending and ok with the series coming to an end. This book will take you on such a ride and on a serious emotional rollercoaster. There were some parts of t ...more

Renegade is a slightly better sequel, but still a disappointing ending. Heven, Sam, and Company are back to school, but evil is still underfoot. They’ve also filled in Heven’s grandmother about what’s going on, because some events are essentially happening in her own backyard. Then she tells them what she knows, and everything makes much more sense. But simply knowing what’s really going on, isn’t going to help them defeat Beezlebub and his minions.

Renegade has quite a bit going on. Of course, t

I've really enjoyed the other books in this series, and Renegade was no exception! I think I liked it about the same as Tirade, maybe a little more.

I definitely got pulled back into this world, which I really like. It's different than a lot of other paranormal books I've read, and it was nice to jump back into Heven's life.

Everyone got the ending they deserved, and I'm glad things worked out for so many characters. There were some unexpected happenings, but even then, I wasn't too surprised th

What did I think? Well, that is an easy question. I LOVED IT! Of course. :)

I have read the entire series, and have been turned from Sam to Riley who is my Fav character and has been since Tirade. There is just something about a hotass babdboy with a quick wit and smart mouth!

Renegade was an awesome read. This book was all the things you love in a good book: humor, sarcasm, sadness, loss and love. I went through every emotion I possess as I devoured the pages. There were times I cried, Riley alwa

Oh My God!!! The BEST is saved once again for last! And this one sure doesn't disappoint! Cambria Hebert has done it again!

I absolutely REFUSE to say anything about this book because I do not wish to spoil the story for those who haven't had a chance to read it yet.

What I will say is that the Characters are once again BRILLIANT! I love books where their is growth and this series does not miss that very important factor. I love the intricacies of this series. The ups and downs of life.

Well well well........

What a fantastic series.

I totally enjoyed this book, thankfully not as dark as Tirade, but equally as fascinating.

Sam and Hever, the odds were stacked against them from the start, but the path of true love although never runs smoothly, it does build the bond between the two of them. Hever was a lovely strong determined person, although her past was not a straight one you just knew she was going to get her job done. Sam never ceased to surprise me, what a beautiful boy he wa

I have read all the books in the Heaven & Hell series, and in my opinion, this is the best yet. Poor Sam and Heaven never seem to get a break and are still going through all those trials and tribulations, but still manage to keep it together. Add in Cole’s problems, not only the continuing problems with Gemma, but also with Kimber, and Riley’s power lust and his own problems and you have a winning book. I especially loved Heaven and Kimbers interaction; I could totally see it happening if it ...more

Renegade is full of emotion without all the angst (which I truly appreciate). For me though, there is a little bit too much lag in places, a little too much ‘filler’ while waiting for the ‘real’ action to start. There are quite a few twists in the telling of this story. It just feels as though the story would be told just as well without the extraneous happenings, ie… green fog..

I must admit that I didn’t really see Riley’s nor Ana’s paths ending where they did. I can say that for most of the an

At least he didn't try to tell me it would be okay. We would have both known he was lying.

Sam and Heven are picking up the pieces, and trying to come to terms with all they've lost. Now everything is at risk as Beelzebub brings his war home. Can Sam and Heven win this war, or will they lose too much in the end?

Sam and Heven, along with the rest of the characters from the series, join a few more in an effort to save the world from Beelzebub's lofty plans. The characters continue to drive this sto

I wondered what I would say once I came to this point, the series finally at an end and me left wishing some how I could make it all a reality. Cambria Herbert did an amazing job with the final book in the Heven and Hell series. Renegade is gripping and intense with just the right amount of drama, romance, suspense, and humor all rolled into this wonderful book.

I promise not to give any details away in this review. Strictly my thoughts =) And so here goes nothing.

Completely not expected the ways things went down. I admit that I teared up on more than one occasion; I am a girl after all (LOL) So full of vivid details (as always) and emotion, it's kinda hard not to get swept up in this

The Heven and Hell series is without a doubt one of my personal favorites. I fell in love with all of the characters that Cambria created in this series. It's really hard to accept that there will be no more tales of Heven and Sam, but Cambria did an amazing job with the conclusion to their story.

In the final book Heven and everybody in her life are tested more than they ever have been before. Time is running out and Beezlebub needs to be stopped before he wreaks even more havoc than he already

This is a favourite series of mine and I've been hotly anticipating the final book to see how everything goes down in the end. Renegade does not disappoint and is full of all the action and twists as the previous books and is an excellent seal on the series. I don't want to say too much, what with it being the fourth book and chances are, if you're reading this review then you've already read at least some of the series and are curious about whether it keeps up t its high standards.

To be honest I was disappointed. Not because of the story itself, but because I am not ready for it to end. I have fallen in love with each and every character in the series and look forward to reading them again.
Sam and Heven just can’t seem to catch a break from Hell! Every time they turn around there is another reason for them to be back in Hell saving a life. The trauma that they go through losing loved ones is really felt in this last book and the relationships that are built are stronger t
