Rating: 5/5 stars

This is the eighth and final book in the Jaz Parks series by Rardin. It was a wonderful way to end the series. Definitely one to read, especially if you are a fan of the series. You do need to read the previous books to fully understand what happens in this book since it is closely tied to previous plot elements.

This book starts out with Jaz and Vayl on vacation enjoying each others company. That is until someone shows up at the door and tries to assassinate Vayl, at the same time Jaz gets a frantic call from Cassandra telling Jaz not to kill the assassin because he is one of Vayl's sons reincarnated. in addition to traveling to hell to finally get Brude out of Jaz's head and banished to Hell again, they have to hunt down Vayl's other son, rescue a ghost, and not get killed doing it. It will take the whole gang to succeed...and a trip to Romania.

This was an absolutely wonderful book. All of our favorite characters from previous books are back and play major roles. Astrid, the robo-kitty, is even more hilarious than normal. And we finally get to go to Hell!

This book had a lot of laughs, a lot of butt-kicking, and was just in general awesome. If you are a big fan of this series you will not be disappointed. I loved it and was sad when it was over.

Overall an excellent installment in this series, and excellent ending to this series. I am sad we won't be seeing anymore books from Rardin, but happy that she left us with such a wonderful conclusion to this series.
