Nila, Jethro and those they care about have all gone through agonizing pain to get to where they are. How much more can any of them take before they buckle and crack? Oh trust me, you're going to find out and live all of the pain yourself. I loved these star-crossed lovers from the very first word of their story and no one deserves a happily ever after more than they do. But is that really in the cards for them? Can they put a stop to this heinous debt inheritance before the final debt is collected? Blood will be shed, tears will be cried and you may even want to hide your Kindle in fear. (I don't recommend putting it in the freezer).
This entire book had me tense with apprehension. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next while simultaneously being terrified of it. I did not a breath a deep sigh of relief until I got to the end and knew no more damn pain was coming. What an epic journey this series has been and I loved every second of it. Thank you Ms. Winters.
There is also an Epilogue that was surprise released with this final installment, and while I don't want to talk about it much because I don't want to give anything away, the tone of that book was so different than its predecessors. It didn't make it better, but sweeter I guess. It was just great for closure and for a final goodbye to all the characters I've come to love.
|“I’m going to take you.” I’m going to claim you. I’m going to give you everything because you deserve fucking everything. You deserve to be worshiped and praised. You deserve to be loved every damn day of your life.”|
|She looked so fragile and delicate, but I knew that was a lie. She was stronger than anyone. And I wanted to bow at her feet for the rest of eternity.|
|“I love feeling your thoughts. I love knowing you want to heal me even while your body demands I take you first.”|

Excerpt: Nila's POV
|“Ready to die, Nila?”|
Cut’s voice physically hurt me as he forced me to my knees. The ballroom splendour mocked me as I bowed unwillingly at the feet of my executioner.
Velvet and hand-stitched crewel on the walls glittered like the diamonds the Hawks smuggled—a direct contrast to the roughly sawn wood and crude craftsmanship of the guillotine dais. No finesse. No pride. Just a raised podium, framework cushioning a large tarnished blade, and a rope dangling to the side.
“Don’t do this. Cut…think about what you’ve become. You can stop this.” My voice mimicked a beg but I’d vowed not to beg. I’d seen things, understood things, and suffered things I never thought I would be able to endure. I refused to cry or grovel. I wouldn’t give him that satisfaction.
“In five minutes, this will all be over, Weaver.” Cut bent to the side and collected a wicker basket.
The wicker basket.
I didn’t want to think about what its contents would be.
He placed it on the other side of the wooden block.
My lungs demanded more oxygen. My brain demanded more time. And my heart…it demanded more hope, more life, more love.
I’m not ready.
Not like this.
“No. No more talking. Not after everything you’ve done.” Ripping a black hood from his pocket, he didn’t hesitate. No fanfare. No second guesses.
I cried out as the scratchy blackness engulfed my face, tightening by a cord around my throat.
The Weaver Wailer chilled me. The diamond collar that’d seen what I’d seen and whispered with phantoms of my slain family prepared to revoke its claim and detach from around my neck.
This was it.
The Final Debt.
Cut pushed my shoulders forward.
A heavy yoke settled over the top of my spine.
I closed my eyes.
I said goodbye.
I waited to die.
