Two eternities. One ending.

“Harmony would only come with destruction.”

The moment Eric and Jessica are reunited, they are torn apart. After the appearance of a new breed of shades and lights, the powers shift for the worse, and all three descendants find themselves face-to-face in the Light realm. When Darthon is in control, the last thing everyone expects is to finally hear the truth.

While Jessica learns the reason of her creation, Darthon’s identity is exposed to Eric—and only Eric—and Eric can no longer defend himself. With the eternities of the Light and the Dark resting on Jessica’s shoulders, she must choose who she will be—a light or a shade.

In the end, someone must die, and the end is near.

4 out of 5 stars


Jessica and Eric know they need to find out Darthon’s plan and identity. They have no idea how to do it or how to go about finding new information. All they know is that Darthon is a Light and his other identity is someone who goes to their school. Jess and Eric come back to school to none of their friends remembering many events of their recent past regarding the two of them; they have no idea why. They have recently become engaged and wear rings that Eric’s deceased mother gave to him before her death. They continue on with their everyday lives until something bad happens. They find Darthon, but they get held captive. The Dark are desperately trying to find them and find out what happened, but they can’t; Darthon and the other lights have forbidden them from knowing. Why can’t the Dark find them? Why can’t they talk about it when they get back?

Huge thank you to Shannon A. Thompson for sending me this book for review! I loved the first two books in this series and this one didn’t disappoint! These books really are great and are beautifully written. The whole concept is super cool and I’m really fortunate that I got the opportunity to read them. :) I loved the plot in this one, and so many explanations happened, but I just want more! I wouldn’t object to an epilogue or a short story explaining what happened when they got to Iowa. I mean, I’m from Iowa so I would know where some of the places were ;)


Jess and Eric are so perfect. I’ve loved them in the two previous books, and I still think they’re great. I love them together so much. I want to know what happens when the Iowa trip gets done, I want their wedding scene, and I just want more of them! I loved all the new characters that were introduced in this book; one of my favorite scenes dealt with one of the new characters. My favorite part *well, one of many* was when Eric’s dad was talking to him about what happened to his mom. It was such a great scene because Eric got clarity on the situation and he got to bond with his dad a little bit.

Who Would I Be?:

I would definitely choose to be Jessica. She’s just such a strong lead role and her Shade color is purple. That’s super cool. She also has really great friends and a great boyfriend. Even though she has some tough decisions to make, she thinks them through and is really logical about things.
