Deeply, Darkly, Beautifully by Megan Tayte (Young Adult, 10E/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

 February 2016, Heaven Afire, 313 pages, Ebook, Review copy 

Content: dark themes, some violence, humour
Book Summary
The Ceruleans: mere mortals infused with power over life and death. Five books; one question: If the might of the heavens were in your hands, would you be sinner or saint?

With her mother’s life hanging in the balance, Scarlett is devastated – and done with being in the dark. She wants answers, all of them.

But when was her pursuit of the truth ever straightforward?

Pulling a single thread impels a great unravelling. And each revelation will force Scarlett to rethink what she thought she knew about the Ceruleans, the Fallen, her family – herself.

All that came before was a mere prelude to this, the last journey. From London to Twycombe to Hollythwaite to Cerulea, Scarlett will be stalked by the ghosts of what has been, what may have been and what may come to pass. Until she reaches the place where it all began, and it all must end.

But in the final reckoning, none will survive unscathed. And some will not survive at all.
Nayu's thoughts 
 A perfect twist filled end to an awesome series. It's truly beautiful. This review is short because I could wax lyrical how so many truths come to light which dramatically impact on Scarlett and all other Ceruleans, how the ending is unexpected yet perfect, which fits the previous endings of the other books. 

I could go on about how all of Scarlett's friends and frenemies are a huge support even when she pushes them away, how watching the sisters slowly mend their fractured relationship is sweet, and how much I adore Cara and Estelle for their enthusiasm and much needed humour. Go read this book, and the rest to find out why it's awesome!!!
