REVIEW: FALLEN REIGN by S.L. Jennings

Synopsis

Yesterday, I had the audacity to imagine a future.

One that didn’t include hunting rogue demons and battling archangels to settle an ancient score at the expense of humanity. One comprised of a home and a family and all the things I’d longed for as a broken child.

Then in the blink of a silver speckled eye, my foolish hope was extinguished, and my world came crumbling down.

We stood strong. We fought. We lost.

I lost.

Legion, the demon I dared to love, was gone.

Now I’m going to tear myself in two and do the unthinkable to find him. I’m going to put my trust in his brother, his enemy, and make a deal with the Devil. And while his darkness and depravity echo mine, I know this won’t end well for either of us.

My body may survive, maybe even my soul. I can’t promise the same for my heart. This time, I will not fail. I will not hesitate. And if it comes down to it, I’ll be the weapon I was created to be. I will follow the code of the Se7en, and do what I should have done when we had the chance.

Kill one to save a million.

Kill him to save the world.

Review

I was absolutely RUINED by the end of book three, and I truly didn’t understand how Legion and Eden were going to come back from what transpired; it absolutely felt like end times, meaning that all hope was lost and there were very few people/beings, if any, who could bring back Legion, the being, instead of the evilness that he embodied by the time Wicked Ruin was over. Despite my feelings of hopelessness, though, I knew that Eden would not go down without a fight and that the big bad devil, Lucifer himself, would factor into Eden’s plans.

Body, heart, and soul – those are all parts of Eden that she willingly gave to Legion, and now that he’s gone, she will willingly risk all three in order to save the world and the man she loves. But if readers have learned anything from the previous three books in the Se7en series, it’s that nothing is what it seems; time and time again, S.L. Jennings has led readers and her characters into some extremely fucked up situations, destroying the world in her story and leaving everyone to pick up the pieces, knowing that it will never be the same because there’s always another foe to battle, another sacrifice to be made, and another life to save, which means that the ending is never quite the end because the full story hasn’t been told yet.

The road to bringing Legion back is incredibly dark and twisty because not only do the Se7en have to rely on the devil to prevent total annihilation, but Eden’s destiny still hasn’t been completely revealed and by the time that information is told, things may be too far gone or the outcome may not play in her favor given what she was initially created to do.

But despite everything that the Se7en and Eden have been through, the need to find Legion is a mission that they are not capable of achieving on their own…there’s too much at stake…to much power and evil to contend with, which means that they need the help from the biggest badass of them all – Lucifer.

While Lucifer doesn’t steal all the thunder of the other characters in this series, he definitely is an intriguing alpha male – one who oozes sex, lust, desire, and danger. It’s clear he has his own agenda and easily manipulates situations in his favor, but it’s also important to understand the other side of the devil…the side that very few see…the side that happens to shine in Eden’s presence because his feelings for her are beyond comprehension given his position and his selfishness.

S.L. Jennings’ paranormal series are some of the best due to her incredibly detailed world building and the complexity of the characters she creates who seem to be a combination of both good and evil. Her story lines are never straight forward; there are always multiple complications and roadblocks that have to be take, care of and plans readjusted in order to continue on the path that will lead characters to either their damnation or their redemption.

Eden, Legion, Lucifer, and the Se7en have been to hell and back throughout the series: they’ve experienced casualties, life-changing revelations, and cataclysmic incidences.

‘Kill one to Save a Million.’

‘kill him to Save the World.’

That’s where Eden’s existence begins and ends…at least that is what fate dictates, but Eden is beyond a badass and she refuses to not be in control of her own destiny as much as she can be, so I never doubted that she would have her say and act according to what her hearts wants and needs, and while it almost destroyed every part of who she is, she’ll do anything to fulfill her personal mission, meaning tearing the world down to the guard to reunite her with the only man she wants to spend forever by his side.

This series took me on one hell of an amazing, emotional, and beyond crazy journey. Any feeling a person has will be expended in this story line; the events will irritate, anger, sadden, and ultimately destroy because it is just that epic, and it’s made even more so due to one evil bastard and a Jennings’ character that readers just can’t help but love.
