The Daughter of Zion by Elicia Hyder

The conclusion and 9th book of the Soul Summoner series. Urban fantasy. Not a stand-alone.
A war between angels threatens to leave the human population devastated. It’s the year 2032 and Warren, Fury and Iliana lead the forces trying to stop the devastating conclusion.

Warning: this book includes the after effects of a manufactured virus that wipes out half the population. It is in no way related to our current situation (early 2020). It is fiction. The story uses the virus as backstory.

War and fighting and even arguments disturb me. I had to back off a bit in the of middle of the story for perspective. Don’t get me wrong - it has NOTHING to do with the current world environment. I just needed more happy to go along with the war in this book.

The characters are strong and well developed. The series is intense and electrifying. The second half of the series, written mostly from Warren’s perspective, is fierce and powerful. The conclusion is everything we wanted.

✅ Plot
✅ Action
✅ Characters and funny moments
✅ Death (I'm not happy that some character died, but I would have been disappointed if no one died so...)
✅🆗 Pace
🆗 Romance

This book starts exactly where The Guardian ends. Warren, Fury, and Reuel are back from Nulterra, only to realize that the 2 days they spent there were in fact 17 years on Earth. Reeling from the shock of seeing Iliana all grown up, learning that Azrael forgot everything about the supernatural world since he didn't have his bloodstone, and also learning that a fourth of the world population died from a manufactured virus (thanks to the Morning Star), Warren is having a tough time to figure out what to do next.

The final battle is finally there (after a huuuuuge build-up that took 8 books) and while it was great and full of action, I was a little disappointed by the Morning Star. He's supposed to be this insanely clever fallen angel, but he didn't feel that clever to me honestly. Also, the fact that the build-up leading to this confrontation takes so long does not help. I think nothing could have lived up to my expectations after reading 8 books about how hell-bent the Morning Star is on destroying the spirit-line and Iliana and how he wants to rule over everyone and will be nearly unstoppable because he is so damn brilliant and ruthless.

While I did enjoy this book, I was honestly expecting more. I feel as though there were some explanations that were lacking, and I don't feel like I've had enough closure with this whole adventure. The fact that they spent what felt like a third of the book looking for a cure for a new weapon designed to kill angels also made me feel like the plot could have been better for some parts.

The fact that this book was published in March 2020, and that the first chapters explain how a deadly airborne virus has spread everywhere in the world and has killed over a fourth of the population is kind of weird/funny (I'm not saying that the COVID-19 is funny, just that the resemblances between the book and our real situation is).

“Like a vaccine…” Iliana said quietly. She looked around. “Where’s Papa?”
No one had told Iliana that her grandfather was MIA. He hadn’t returned with Sloan and the others.
“Yeah, where is he?” Sloan asked. I grimaced.
“We really don’t know.” Her eyes doubled.
“You lost my dad?”
“Not lost, exactly. He’ll find his way back here.”

“You saved me.” As Iliana stood, she pressed a kiss to my forehead.
“Then Fury bitch-slapped the Prince of Darkness with the butt of her rifle.” Ionis was sitting on the hood of the SUV with his legs crossed. “It was epic.”

One thing that I really liked about this book (even though it was still in Warren's POV), is that the whole crew is finally together again! Reuel, Fury, Nate, Sloan, Iliana, Warren, Ionis, and even The Father is there (and he is funny!)... They're finally reunited and working together to stop Satan from destroying the world. Of course, that means some funny moments in the midst of life-threatening situations and end-of-world catastrophes.

Sloan continued her introduction. “This is Anya and Fury.” She pointed at me. “And this is Warren.”
The woman’s brow tightened with confusion. “But I thought Warren was Iliana’s father.” Oh, this is going to be fun. It was going to be like telling people Azrael and I were brothers all over again.
“He is,” Nathan announced with a smile as he plucked a banana from a fruit basket. “Sloan liked ’em young.”
Sloan put a hand on her hip. “So I guess I settled for an old man like you.”
Nathan paused with the banana halfway to his mouth and laughed. “My dear, I do believe your wit is getting quicker with age.”

Nathan nudged Warren with his elbow. “So how are we going to play this? Good cop, bad cop?”
“I prefer outright threats,” Warren said.
“Did you bring the sword?”
Warren jerked his head toward Fury. “She wouldn’t let me.”
I crossed my arms and looked at them both.
“You want her to move in with Jett and Rogan? She’s eighteen too, ya know?”
A deep crease formed between Nathan’s eyebrows. “You and I have issues today, woman.”
“Just trying to keep you from doing something all of us will regret, my dear.”
I lifted my wineglass and hid my mouth behind it. “As always.”

“Wow, you look—”
“Too damn pretty.” Nathan stepped over beside him and pointed toward the stairs. “Go change. Right now.”
Iliana rolled her eyes. “Dad.”
“You do look really pretty,” Warren said quietly to her. She smiled and did a twirl in the pink sundress.
“Thanks. Mom picked it out.”
Nathan whirled toward me, horrified. “You’re responsible for this?”
“Paid for it with your credit card,” I said with a wink.
He put his hands on his hips. “Issues,” he said again.

Also, Warren, Nate, and Sloan. Nothing more to say except that I missed them too much in the 7th and 8th books. ❤️

The sound of paper crackling caught my ear. I looked across the group as Nathan shoveled a handful of candy into his mouth. Midchew, he stopped and looked at the wrapper. “Wait a second,” he said around a mouthful.
“What?” Sloan asked him.
He turned the candy’s label toward me. “Did you name your dog after me?”
I laughed.
He swallowed and pointed at me. “You did! You named your dog Skittles!”
“I did no such thing.”
Fury leaned her head to the side. “The dog’s name is Skittles.”
“Reuel named her. Not me.”
“Warren, there’s no need to be embarrassed. You don’t have to lie!” Nathan came over and threw his arms around me. “You love me! You really love me!”
Laughing, I pushed him away.

I had no idea what I was getting into when I started the first book of this series. Actually, I had no idea there were 9 books (+ novellas) in this series)! This is a great adventure, full of action, twists, and funny moments, and I definitely recommend it if you are looking for a paranormal series that's funny, entertaining, and original.

This is the epic finale of the Soul Summoner series. This book starts exactly where the previous one ends. And it ends with the most epic battle between heaven and hell and the battle for earth. This book is so full of suspense, drama, angst, love, loss, regret, salvation, and the greatest HEA I have ever had the opportunity to read. I cried tears of fear, sorrow, joy, and elation. I am so sad to see this series end. The emotional investment I had in these characters was great. 

The first chapter of this book had me wondering if the author wrote this before or after news of the Coronavirus broke. The opening chapter storyline mimics what is currently happening in our world today. As it turns out our author might be a little clairvoyant. It's a case of life imitates art. 

This is a 9 book series with some extra novellas to flesh out some of the characters. It's unlike any paranormal romance series I've read in a long time. When I started reading this series I had no idea what a wild ride I was in for. I would love to see this made into a TV series. 

If you are looking for something good to read during the current pandemic I highly recommend investing in this series.

✨ 🦠 👼🏻 ⚔️ 🚁 ⛈ 💥 💫

𝘈𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵: The final book in a 9 part series, The Daughter of Zion focuses on the last big showdown between the Morning Star and the “good guys.” All of the series’ favorite characters come together to plot and fight against a brainwashed human army, a hoard of fallen demons, and of course, Satan himself...

Having been away for 17 years, unintentionally, Warren (the archangel of death) is faced with some complex realities about life as it stands in the current day and age. As if betrayals from deceiving coworkers and a newly teenaged daughter weren’t enough to reconcile with, he finds out his friends and family have been torn apart - not to mention there is an ongoing national epidemic!
Several problems stand between the old crew and (ya know nothing big) the total annihilation of humanity. Among them include being forced to miraculously come up with a cure for the bioengineered virus, plus figuring out how to handle the deadliest weapon they could have never seen coming.

↳ 𝘔𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩𝘵𝘴: Elicia’s writing is as captivating as ever, don’t get me wrong. However, as this is the conclusion to a much-beloved series, I was expecting a lot more. I feel as though I didn’t receive enough explanation and closure. Maybe I'm just bitter to be forced to say goodbye to all of my favorites!

There were parts when having characters be introduced seemed a little too much. We didn't need the weird family reunion on earth. It also seemed that this book upped the corniness factor a lot, and there were fewer feel-good moments. Although I did love Nate and his skittles comment. 😂👌

Another qualm I have.. there was not enough Azrael. Not enough of Enzo’s behind-the-scenes work. We didn't get to see the inside world of Adrienne struggling with Michael or even much of Azrael’s journey to remembering. She could’ve circled back to so many things and given us those a-ha moments! It seemed like she was trying to fit in a conclusion before it was time. She could’ve made this one of her best by dragging it out to be an 800 pager or even by putting it into two books! These extraordinary characters deserved more. I personally didn't want a clean-cut ending as much as I wanted to know the intricacies of how everything happened and worked out for the greater good.

As always, my favorite part = the lovable characters.
The Father is always the best. 😆
& You definitely can’t read this book without having already read about Nathan‘s family. They're in the story, but not much. I thought the epilogue was cute, but I felt uneasy with how everything ended up being too perfect. 😕

We've come a long way from the murder mystery Sloan and Nate started out with. I would have never expected it to bring us here, but wow. Much admiration for Elicia‘s continued ability to tell wonderful, heartfelt stories.

I've been a fan of The Soul Summoner series since I discovered the very first book, and I definitely enjoyed The Daughter of Zion, the 9th novel in this excellent series.

The Soul Summoner series is about angels and humans, with a few demons, the Morning Star, and the Father himself getting involved from time to time. The main characters are Warren (human first, then Angel of Death), Sloan (human with some angelic powers), Nathan (human), Azrael (Warren's father and previous Angel of Death), Fury (human) and a host of others who bring these books to life. None of them are one-dimensional or boringly predictable. The women are just as powerful and heroic as the men. I've grown to love them like family. The stories are wonderful. They can be fascinating, frightening, suspenseful and belly-laugh-inducing.

The following paragraph is a light spoiler if you haven't read the previous books:

The Daughter of Zion takes place after Warren, Fury and Reuel (angel) emerge from Nulterra (celestial name for Hell) after rescuing Fury's sister Anya (angel) and two others. They were in Nulterra two days, only to discover, after they escape and emerge, that it's been 17 years in real time. Warren's daughter, Iliana, the greatest and most powerful angel ever born, is now 18 and has come into her powers. Fury's son Jett, an angel reborn into the body of her baby, is grown. Missing their childhoods devastates Warren and Fury, who have to come to terms with that pretty fast, since Satan, the Morning Star, has taken control of Azrael and his vast military complex and is determined to kill Iliana, the only being as powerful (or maybe more) as he.

The rest of the story is a rich blend of love, grief, battle, desperation, and, in some cases, healing and victory. There isn't as much character discovery and enrichment in this novel, because it consists mainly of characters we know so well already, but the situation which humans and angels alike face is both fascinating and terrifying. I was nicely satisfied at the end of the book, which tied all the loose ends up very sweetly.

*voluntarily and honestly reviewed the ARC I received from the author*

This is a 3.8 for me, mainly because it was a slow ride in spite of all the emotional drama. There just seemed to be a disconnect between me and Warren. I couldn't bring myself to be totally into his relationship with Fury because I still thought he was only ever for Sloan. I guess it only took him decades to get over her and their situation. Something I still can't accept (lol). But I had to, in order to move on, but this thing with Fury just seemed so... sudden. If there had been hints in Sloan's story, I would have accepted this better. Instead I was constantly wondering if he'd really felt anything for Fury while he was with Sloan after all, and if Fury is the same person as she was when she was first introduced, and if she's changed, how... and just the fact that I'm more worried about that than anything else that actually happened in the book shows how much I personally needed to get over the Nathan-Sloan-Warren train.

Reading Warren's trilogy back to back after taking a break from Sloan's was a little strange for me. His POV is very different from Sloan's, and his romance with Fury would've gone better with me if I'd been able to accept it more than I did. And though this is the most action-packed of the installments, I still thought it read slow until the very end. And then when something finally got accomplished, I couldn't help but feel that not much had really passed except a lot of romantic stuff and dangerous stuff with the Morning Star. WHO, by the way, didn't really come off as anyone big and bad. He came off more as a spoiled teen taking dangerous risks to get what he wants. I was a little bummed about that bit.

Overall, it was an okay read. Not amazing, but it wasn't bad. Just a little slow. And if it wasn't slow, it seemed so fast with the deaths. Like, people and angels were GONE, but people cried and then moved on. It didn't seem as serious as I thought it'd be, but maybe that's just me.

Most of the time, the final book in the series is a disappointment. The Daughter of Zion is an exception to that rule. Hyder has crafted an exceptional story that perfectly balances tying up loose ends with a rock solid storyline. Little nuances and moments from previous books that seemed like throw always (though meaningful in that moment) prove to be key elements to the conclusion.

This is not to say I enjoyed every moment. It is unfortunate timing that this book has references to a (past history) global pandemic and is being released during an actual pandemic. There are moments of deep grief when things happen to beloved characters. But a good story reflects reality, and bad things happen to loved ones.

I finished the book tonight. Tomorrow, I will likely begin re-reading the full 9 book series. I’m not ready to let these characters go, but I am so happy I can revisit them at will.

I really enjoyed this series. Anytime you bring in Angels and the wonders of what Heaven can be like, it is so intriguing. This series was full of action, humor, romance. It had it all. Just a fun read.

Finally a series that gives readers the closure they deserve! Elicia Hyder's gift to make readers care about her characters and reside in their world for the duration of the books is a rare thing that not many authors possess. I will miss these characters so much, but am satisfied with the ending. She truly closed things out in a great way.

Where do I begin? The book starts off exactly at the cliffhanger that kept me on edge for months: Warren, Fury and Reuel returning 17 years after they left for Nulterra thinking it had only been a day. I was crying when I realized how much time Warren and Fury missed with their children. The bright spot of all of this was Iliana coming into her powers and being such a good kid. Her bond with her Appa (Warren) is a beautiful thing and leapt out of my Kindle. Her bond with Jett was also great to see, but I felt Warren and Nathan's pain (I have a daughter too).

This book was like a big old reunion. Characters from the earlier books are mentioned and Shannon Green had a pivotal role in the amazing climax of this book. She is still overbearing (her poor son) and obnoxious, but I actually liked her in this book.

The bond between Sloan and Adrianne was one of my favorites parts of the series, but they are fragmented for most of this book (so many tears on my Kindle). And having Azrael, such a strong character in the prior books behave like a broken person was also hard to see. His son Michael aka the Morningstar was arrogant to the point of being laughable, yet a controlling force that made me long for his comeuppance. His controlling everyone around him (not Iliana - she was not having it) and segregating his family from their loved ones gave the book a melancholy feel up until the the middle of the book where the battle began.

This book was so prescient considering where we are with COVID-19. There are some very scary parallels here. I got the chills reading some of it (she wrote this book months before it hit). Loss and devastation were prevalent, but there was always hope even in the darkest of moments.

I was on the edge of my seat for this entire book. Reuel as usual brought the comedy along with Nathan, Iliana and Warren. I laughed, cried, cursed and smiled throughout. The ending was so fulfilling that I wished for those beautiful stairs to appear here for real.

Be sure to check out the epilogue (it definitely brings the LOL's). This book (and series) is a must read for not only for Hydernation members, but anyone who loves a good read with characters that become like family.

Elicia, thank you so much for sharing your gift with us. You ended the series with the perfect amount of closure and some laughs. :)

OK, I admit I am a HUGE Elicia Hyder fan, so of course I loved this book. There are not enough superlatives in the English language for me to describe how fantastic it is. If you haven't read the series, you really should. You have to start with The Soul Summoner and go from there. This whole series will make you laugh, cry, gasp and be angry. Yes, it gives you all the feels. Yes, it's a book that you stay up reading all night because you can't put it down. That is, until you realize you HAVE to work the next day and actually need some sleep.

If you have read the previous books, I shouldn't have to tell you how addicting this series is. I am sad to say goodbye to Sloan, Nathan, Warren, Az, Fury, Adrianne, and Illy, but they all do have a great ending. Elicia said she wanted them to have a happy ending and so she wrote it. I'm so glad she did.

I would love to see this whole series brought to a TV or movie screen, but I fear that it would not do justice to the books. But ya know, special effects have come a long way, so.... maybe??? :)

All of Elicia's books are written so vividly, you feel as though you are the fly on the proverbial wall. If you've read this series but not her other ones - the Roller Derby books or The Bed She Made books, you won't be disappointed to read those. Though there's no paranormal in those, you still get Elicia's writing style which again, puts you right next to the characters as their story plays out.

I received an advance electronic copy of the book as I had pre-ordered a signed copy by the author.

The Daughter of Zion book 9 of The Soul Summoner series Makes all the rest of the books fall into place. To me somethings that happened in the other books didn't make sense at the time, and made me frustrated and mad. But it all happened so that the final book could take place the way it did. There is somethings in this book that I didn't like, but the ending was amazing. I don't like sad books because I deal with sadness all the time, and I read to get away from the day to day things in the world. Reading is something I love and even though I read some books that make me cry its usually because its a book that shouldn't be missed. This series is that way for me, because yes there is bad things that happen but there is also good, and the good out way all the bad things. There has been a few times I got mad and said "WHY" or "YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME" or just growl and shake my fists. I'm laughing about it now but at the time I was frustrated with the whole series that I stopped reading book 9 for a month. I am glad I finished reading it even though it frustrated me, it also made me laugh as well. I Love Nathan, he just makes this series better; His character is amazing, and funny. Him and Warren together give this book an edge because their bantering is so much like brothers. It's funny because at first Nathan doesn't like warren but then they come to an understanding with one another and then they do become like brothers.

The end

When I first started this series I was hooked I was lucky a few books was out so I could read back to back but after book 8 there was along wait and off I went to read many many more books forgetting.yesterday realized I did not read the last book it took me a bit to remember all that happened I remembered the end of book 8 as it was a fantastic cliff hanger end. At the beginning I thought Sloan should be with Nate but then Angel Warren showed up and he did not stand a chance.being that she had not dated Nate it was easy to fall into Sloan and warrens romance.but then he has to leave her and baby it was tears strumming down your face heart breaking sobs kind.it felt to me wrong to be with Nate after that.even as friends you can see love there and warren and nates bromance is weird it's like Nate I give my soul mate and child to you because I love you all.weird.then there is fury/Alison I felt poor Warren got second best yes she is this stunning women but so what.I like him with sloan.then his daughter is dating first son while he dates the mum.just werid.really did not like cassiel or fury both women used it at the beginning.only Sloan was real. I enjoyed the read some heart breaking moments but lots of girlfriends swaps with main characters.I guess there is not any fated mates in this supernatural Angel storyline series,lots of great action and close friends relationship in this series

This took me a long while to read because I lost interest easily. I’m so glad this is the final installment of the series. I was ready for it to be over.
In this book, Warren and Fury return after destroying Nulterra and find that they have been gone 17 years. They also return to a very different world where plague has destroyed a large part of the population. The Morning Star has risen into his power, but so has Iliana. There are new weapons and no help from Eden as the earth has been cut off. Warren and Iliana work together to figure out a way to protect earth and angels and restore the Spirit line.
The first part of the book was a lot of setup and constant love scenes between Fury and Warren (gag - I still don’t like Fury) and I found it easy to lose interest and put it down. The last 1/3 of the book was rather exciting and full of action as the battle between The Morning Star and Iliana occurs.
I liked that all of the loose ends were pretty much tied up by the end and I’m glad that Warren was happy with his choices, but I honestly didn’t like all of the characters and it made it less endearing to me. I’m happy the series is done.

In this final book in the series, we know to expect the ultimate battle between good and evil. The battle between the Morning Star and the Daughter of Zion - aka Michael and Illiana.
There are some good twists here, some surprises. But what this reader remembers most is that Warren, newly appointed Archangel of Death, enjoys a lot of sex. The situation in Eden and on Earth is supremely stressful, to say the least. And there Warren is, busily engaging in carnal pleasures at every opportunity and some inopportune times too. Stress reduction? It feels gratuitous, the author showing off what a stud Warren is. Over the course of the series, Sexual scenes have become more frequent and not always integral to the plot. Was this writer's block? Perhaps Hyder saying, 'I can't think what comes next, so it is time for Warren to have sex again'? Sorry, just my impression. (No, I don't have a problem with sex scenes where they fit the needs of the plot.) Maybe it was inevitable the final battle would feel anticlimactic. That said, the series was a fun read.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of "THE DAUGHTER OF ZION" OMG!!!!! What an epic finale to this phenominal series you will be quite emotional in parts, laugh out loud at others, so much happens you are totally glued to your seat until finished reading.
Warren, Fury, Anya her sister, Reuel and Samael return from Nulterra with the little girl Hannah who is a ghost to be reunited with her father and Torman a fallen who helped them escape.
Warren sees Iliana and she says Appa I new your were still alive he was shocked when he left she was 1yr old baby it's been 17yrs so much has changed and Jett who is Fury's son is there also so emotional so much has changed.
They all have to be prepared for what is to come the adventure is amazingly beautiful the ways everything ties up Elicia Hyder you did an absolutely phenominal job writing this excellent series with the most awesome ending I recommend to everyone get this entire series its a keeper that won't disappoint.

The final battle has finally come! The ninth book starts out where the last ended…17 years have passed while Warren, Fury and the others were in Nulterra for two days. Grown adults and angels that now have a whole lifetime packed into those short years. Everyone that is human aged as well. Az lost all his memories of the supernatural and Warren. The Morning Star now controls almost EVERYTHING! He also claims to be As’s son, Michael. The spirit line was destroyed the moment Fury drank the crystal water from Eden and everyone is stuck, including the Father. It will take sacrifices, intelligence, brazen ideas and balls to plan and plot the demise of the Morning Star. Elicia Hyder definitely outdid herself with this finale~ All the new elements to the plot, the part each character plays, and the final chapters that displays her warmth, love of family and humor! She could not have given these characters a better departure…here is hoping there will be another season to the Soul Summoner!

Time is fluid, moving across worlds at different speeds, a harsh reality when Warren and company return from there mission to find the world a changed place, the people they knew, all changed. But all roads, all time lines converge to that one point where each choice made can save or condemn the world. Warren brings them all together to take on the Morning Star who has a new weapon made just for angels. As Warren grapples to get a setting in this new time zone, his daughter is all grown up, Iliana, is a powerful force who has trained for this moment. Adrianne, Azrael, are so changed as to be almost unrecognizeable. Jett, Fury's son, raised by a man who had threatened to dump him if she didn't return, is a guardian who refuses to leave Iliana's side. Past grievances are forgotten as families and friends join together to battle for their existance and everyone elses..and there is a special guest appearance! Fast paced, surprise reveals, sit on the edge of your seat read is just wow!!

This is The Daughter Of Zion, book 9 of the exciting series The Soul Summoner written by Elicia Hyder. We pick up right where we were dumped off at the end of book 8. You have to read the entire series!! Warren and Fury and the others have returned from Nulterra to find that everything has changed dramatically in the time they were gone! Have you ever seen someone and just thought how much they have changed since the last time you saw them?? Well this change will beat your change by miles! This book will rip your heart out and sometimes make you LOL. I have been waiting for the conclusion to so many different stories within this series and Ms Hyder has finally delivered. I hope you plan to stay up to finish this one....because that is what you will be doing! I just couldn’t put it down!

I’m glad if an end had to come, that Elicia Hyder was writing it. This book brought it all with moments of sadness and plenty of stress-laden moments with that humor we have come to depend throughout the series peppered in along the way. It was a war, THE War, the one we all knew was coming. And it was everything I wanted, some things that were inevitable, and surprises at just the right moment. I got the time I needed with the characters that have become a huge part of my life in the past couple of years - not the time I *wanted* because I wanted it to never end.

From the dedication to the epilogue, it was what the faithful fans, the story and the characters deserved. I am thankful to Elicia Hyder for this journey and cannot wait to see where her imagination takes us in future series!

Way to end a fabulous series. It was dramatic, edge of seat drama packed with moments of sheer adrenalin, a little frustration, some seriously gut wrenching moments counter balanced with some silliness, and heart felt joy.
If you have enjoyed the series so far, this will not disappoint. There are some rather dramatic scenes in the book that I feel a certain someone has contributed a substantial portion of their experiences to these scenes, they almost felt a little too real at times. Thank you for all those that do that work for us for so many reasons.
There are a number of loose ends that wrapped up with a very satisfying ah haa. My favourite moment is with Az made me cry out loud with tears of joy.
Once again, I say this at the end of all your books Elicia, you’ve outdone yourself. Hazaar girl we look forward to your/our next adventure.

I will read this book again

The thing with reading a serious like this Is you fall in love with every character. It doesn't matter if it's a big to small they play from a archangel to a guardian angel or a soldier or someone who runs a cake shop. From the start I was crying then I was laughing The relationships with the children there were babies when they left and then teenagers when they come back. Warren and fury handled it in their own way which I think this was beautifully written. Sloan and Nathan have gotten stronger as parents and as a couple. Honestly I could go on about this forever but I don't want to give you spoilers I will tell you this You will laugh you cry and you will stand up and shout noooooo and have your husband and children look at you like your crazy. I hope this was helpful I just know I loved The whole series and I read them again

The stunningly perfect ending that fans deserve. I couldn't have imagined a better wrap up to this series. All loose ends are tied. I struggled with the changes in relationships but I finally realize where the author was headed and it all makes sense and respects the connections and love shared. This one picks up where book 8 left off. Seventeen years have passed. The depths of imagination and foresight of the author amazes me. There is action, suspense, tension, humor, shocks and the right amount of romance. I read straight through and my emotions rode the rollercoaster. The final chapter was a beautiful and satisfying conclusion. I have to be honest and admit to slapping myself in the forehead. It was a brilliant eureka moment. I'm sad to see the end come, but what a way to go.

OMG...I loved it! The Daughter of Zion book #9 is the explosive finale of The Soul Summoner series part 2 by Elicia Hyder. If you haven't read any of the others you are totally missing out! The Daughter of Zion starts where The Guardian left off…Warren and Fury return after rescuing her sister Anya in Nulterra. What an eye opener…it’s 17 years later and the children are almost adults! The battle with the most vile demon to save Heaven and Earth is about to take place and OMG what a battle. I laughed, cried…yelled WTF!!! and a lot of other choice words…I was so upset I was ready to throw my e-reader across the room but I forced myself to continue reading and all I can say is….WOW!! I am so looking forward to her next book.

I love how everything turned out. Despite still feeling a pang of nostalgia in wanting Sloan and Warren together, I’m happy they both got to be with who they initially fell for.

As I’ve learned, it’s a slow and subtle build up. I think it’s mostly develops the characters and their relationships and interactions with each other. I like how you can feel everything that they all went through with each other.

It was a refreshing change to read a heroines story from another POV. I would have totally dug reading illys POV, coming into her powers and how her relationship with Jett formed. Reading from warrens POV had me totally on his boat like “yeah, she’s too young!”

Another great read. Bittersweet that it’s finally over.

This is the last book in The Soul Summoners series, which I have enjoyed. This is a fictional story that the good angels defeat the morning star (which is portrayed as Satan). This book is action-packed and will keep you turning the pages. I read the book, then listened to it on audible. The voice character was great. The only issue that I found that I wish were different was that god was somewhat clueless and not all-knowing. Towards the end it is questioned that maybe he knew what was going to happen, but it wasn’t certain. The ending will give the reader peace for sticking to all the books in this series. Sloan is by far my favorite character. Loved this series! Be thankful you don’t have to wait for the next book!!!

I read an advance copy. It freaking ROCKS AMAZEBALLS. Elicia Hyder hits it out of the park with this final installment in the Soul Summoner series.

I know a lot of people are going to cry. And laugh. And snort laugh. And pump your fist in the air while screaming, "YEAH!!!" It's all in there. All of it. All the feels and all the threads get pulled together into a bow. Ok, not a bow. There could NEVER be a bow (just like that last HP book). But the ending satisfies.

PLEASE be sure to read the epilogue. Don't read it while taking a sip of any liquid. Nate is hilarious in the epilogue. (Oh, wait, that's kind of a spoiler.) I'll stop now. No more potential spoilers.

Omg Best Author and book ever!!

I first came across this series from an ad off Instagram. I took a chance and I’m just so happy that I did. The first book pulled me in with just the first few pages and I have been hooked. Each book in the series has been absolutely mind blowing in such an awesome way. You get to know each character in each book so much that they become a part of you. So much feels in every book!! Daughter of Zion had me staying up all night to just finish it yes it’s that’s amazing!!! I’m not giving and spoilers other than you don’t want to miss out of this series and this book!! Best Author ever!!! You rock girl!!! I can’t wait to see what else you have in store for your readers!! Hydernation!!!!

And now the journey is complete

All good stories have to eventually conclude and sadly The Soul Summoner saga has reached the end of it's journey. The entire series has made me laugh and cry and filled me upon occasion with anxiety. I never thought I would be interested in a book of this genre but Elicia wrote each book with such skill and ease it was easy to get wrapped right in. I have laughed out loud and I have cried and I treasured every moment... and The Daughter of Zion didn't disappoint. I am sorry to see the series end but I look forward to what lies ahead from Elicia
