I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

While everyone calls St. John Evernight "Sin" he once had a childhood friend see him as a "Saint" instead. After years of being apart, Layla and Sin are about to have a reunion. With destinies that were decided long before they were born, these two are going to prove that fate i

He wanted more. Now. Forevermore.

Layla Starling first met St John (Sin) Evernight when she was ten years-old. She grew up in Ireland on an adjoining property to the Evernights'. For five years he was her dearest friend until her guardian, Augustus took her away. Now both Sin and Layla are back in London and meet for the first time since she left Ireland. As Sin's mentor, Augustus has asked Sin to watch over her. But has Augustus hidden motives?

It is with a heavy heart and quite a lot of sorrow that I write this review. This is the final book in the Darkest London series and it's a bittersweet ending. Fans will no doubt be clamouring to get their hands on this book but please if you are new to this author start with Firelight as its a journey you won't regret.
Ok this book kind of wraps so many storylines up so its not easy to review without humongous spoilers. It's predominantly about two lost souls reconnecting and seeing themselves i
Man, I'm kinda bummed over some mixed feelings for this one. If I focus on the series a whole, the coming together of the characters, and some of the new directions they know face in light of "the end", I really liked it. But some things felt rushed and as a result of complicated wrapping up of loose ends, and a few surprises, things did feel kind of rushed in FOREVERMORE. And nothing felt more rushed, and kind of neglected, as the main characters and their romance.

I've given this an A- at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars rounded up.

I’m not a great reader of paranormals, but all the buzz and good reviews I’d seen for Firelight the first book in Kristen Callihan’s Darkest London series tempted me to read it; and once I did, I was totally hooked and have eagerly devoured all the subsequent instalments. Forevermore is the seventh and final chapter of the series; and because it pulls together a number of the seeds sown in the earlier novels and features several re

Callihan masterfully wraps up the Darkest London series with Forevermore, the seventh book in this series.

Layla is an extreme wealthy heiress, even though she is from America. She has had a huge influx of marriage proposal but none of the mean interest her like the St. John Evernight. Although, he has never proposed.

John, aka Sin, is conflicted between his desire to have Layla and his oddness. He wants her to have the best match but with his “powers” he will never be that man.

Beautiful conclusion of the series!

Layla is a wonderful heroine who knows what she wants and what she has to do to get it! And what she was is her Sin, her old friend, her first love!

Sin is also in love with Layla since forever, but he's afraid of himself and his sins (and they're many... as we know from the previous books).

Sitll their love story is very touching. It's obvious that they're made for each other and even Augustus states it since the beginning. Only Sin is uncertain, but Layla soon
What a great finale for the Darkest London series. I love how Kristen tied up all the loose end from Book 1 to Book 7 and gave us an epic showdown for her final book of the series.

Truth to be told, I only read Firelight and Evernight prior to reading this, but it doesn't take much for me to remember the London setting, the history and the previous characters.

The main couple in this book is St John Evernight, the youngest brother and black sheep of the Evernight's family and Layla Starling. They

In any given series readers can realistically expect there to be a couple of knockout installments, any more than that, and you KNOW that you’ve found a primo author. So, needless to say, Kristen Callihan’s impeccable record with her DARKEST LONDON books is beyond impressive. FOREVERMORE was the first and ONLY title that came in below her usual standards, but it was still a satisfying conclusion to a phenomenal ride.

So sad to see this series end. It's very hard to say goodbye to the Darkest London series, one of my favorites. If you have not yet had a chance to start this series, check out Firelight the first book in the series. Read them in order and marvel at the wonderful steampunk contraptions that form the backdrop to the series.

The series takes place in Victorian London, except this London has a whole lot of paranormal creatures running about. Forevermore was a solid installment to this series. St. J

4-stars rating is for the series overall.

I am a bit sad to see Darkest London end but really satisfied with the conclusion to these seven PNR-steampunk stories. Although the world building can be a bit confusing throughout the series, there's definitely no shortage of interesting characters and engaging storylines.

Like many fans have commented before, I hope Kristen Callihan continues to give a fresh voice to the adult-PNR genre or perhaps venture into CR (minus NA) genre. Fingers crossed!

4.5 Stars

This was a great ending to a very fun series. The only thing that is keeping this at a four rather than five stars is the hero’s sisters behavior, who each had their own novel. They annoyed me, particularly Miranda. Otherwise, I loved this childhood sweethearts addition to the series. It provided good closure in this very well plotted series.

Thanks Sam for the Buddy Read!

FOREVERMORE is book seven in the Darkest London series and I was excited to read this one because of the hero. St. John Evernight is one of the characters we’ve met before in the series. He’s probably not the most well-liked character, and you’ll know why if you’ve read the other books in the series, but I loved him. The most intriguing thing about his character is that he is a Judgment Angel, and therefore, many other fear him because he has the ability to really do some harm.

As I said, I
I’m sad to see this series end, but this was definitely one of the better books in the series. Sin may be my favorite guy in the series. Then again I’m a sucker for a tortured hero. One bad choice as a kid trapped him in a horrible situation, and it drastically altered the course of his life. Most people gave up on him and believed the worst of him, and it all fed into his self loathing. Although emotionally damaged, he wasn’t a lost cause; with the right support he could learn to cope with his ...more

There are so many mediocre books and series out there that it always makes me sad when a really good one ends. This series has produced some of the most well written and addicting novels that made me, someone who has a lukewarm appreciation for steampunk/historical paranormal novels, fall in love with them.

This final novel in the 7 book series while monumental in scope and plot, only rated 4 Stars from me instead of 5 mainly because there was SO much happening I felt it was a bit confusing in so
Meh. The main couple had zero chemistry, as well as little personality. Sin was far too angsty and whiny, and Layla was a vanilla snowflake, as well as super needy and desperate. I guess they kind of suited each other as they were both so blah. Strangely enough the most entertaining element was how laughably bad the British speak/dialogue was.

The end of one of the best historical paranormal romance series - despite losing its momentum a little Kristen Callihan 's lovely writing and the inclusion of the previous characters still made it a thoroughly enjoyable read and a satisfying conclusion to the Darkest London series.

Darkest London by Kristen Callihan is one of my favorite paranormal romance series. I started reading these books after meeting the author at the 2014 RT Convention in New Orleans. I was impressed with her comments about writing historical PNR and so I thought I would give this series a go. Ms. Callihan is able to bring the dark, foul, eerie, creepiness of late nineteenth century London to life. For me, these stories bring togeth

London has fallen Victorian style.

The end. Fin. Ende. Alas we have come to the end of the road with this series and what a fantastic journey it has been.

St. John Evernight is the long lost brother to the Ellis sisters, Poppy, Daisy and Miranda. Before he came to London he grew up in Ireland. We see glimpses of St. in the other books and the role he played which seemed to be an act of betrayal in boo

Forevermore is damn near perfect.

Forevermore should not be read as a stand alone but as the last book in a fantastic series by Kristen Callihan. If you are looking for something that's a bit historical, bit paranormal with characters and plot lines that are a pure delight you need to start with the first book Firelight.

Now that I've listened to Moria Quirk narrated two of the installments I can highly recommend the series on audio. I love the voices that Quirk developed for Sin and Layla. She pu

This mystical, fascinating, paranormal world Kristen Callihan has created is well-written and highly addicted to read. While I didn’t love Forevermore as much as I would’ve like to, I still loved being back in this world and seeing all the previous characters again. If you’re a fan of the series, you probably won’t

*MY Thoughts*

Forevermore is the seventh and final installment in Kristen Callihan's Darkest London series. Forevermore features St. John (Sin) Evernight, and Layla Starling as the main protagonists. I dare you to read this book without relying on the synopsis to guide you into choosing to read, or not to read the book. While the synopsis is interesting, it has nothing to do with the actual events that happen in the story.

4.5 Stars. A good ending to the series. Although I thought Sin let his sisters off a little too easy, but overall a really great read. My only niggle was that I wish the ending could have been drawn out more, but KC did a great job of including our couples, but not letting them overwhelm the series. Note to JRW, you see how KC let one of her hero's get deathly ill, but she found away to save him in the end...she didn't let him die. (Yes I am still bitter about it!)

It’s hard to say goodbye to a series I have enjoyed as much as this one. This seventh installment is the last in Kristen Callihan’s Darkest London series, and while a new reader could probably catch up, I’d definitely recommend starting with Firelight; one, because I loved that book like chocolate, and two, because this book is really a culmination of the series. It pulls together lingering threads, builds bridges between stories, and ends with the world in a very different place from where it b ...more
Gosh, that was a lot to cram into the final book. I'm almost overwhelmed by what happened and how each character changed over the course of the book. It will most likely take me a while to process my overall feelings about everything but my gut reaction was that this was an incredible way to say good-bye to this world, the characters, and the series.

Plotline #1 - Layla and Sin's romance was Darkest London at its finest. Wonderfully detailed, romantic, with just the right mix of pain and pleasure

I love these books and am sad that this is the last one. I'm so impressed with Callihan's ability to maintain a series this long, with each book consistently well written and each romance just as good as the last. FOREVERMORE is another strong addition, and a lovely note to end on. These will definitely be favourites on my bookshelf for many years to come. <3 ...more
