Resurrected from the dead, Michael Blackwell is enraged and heartbroken to find Ally—the girl he loved—in the arms of the very man that killed him as a human. In Michael’s eyes Ally’s betrayal is absolute. But there is more than meets the eye when it comes to the man who killed Michael, and even more with the girl he thought he knew.

Told in alternating view points from both Michael and Ally, Black Apocalypse is a journey full of heartache and redemption where the past weaves an uncertain future. Can Michael forgive Ally for her betrayal? Can Ally finally embrace who she is destined to become to save them both? The world?

Who is the elusive Seraph, Laurel? Who was the Devourer before his colossal fall from grace? What decisions did they make together that altered the course of history? Shocking revelations, prophecies fulfilled, a war where not everyone will make it out alive, the final installment in the Vulcan Legacies will leave you breathless.
 


Review: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

Vulcan Legacies has truly been a fascinating series, weaving together mythology and magic, love and betrayal. The final installment did not disappoint. It left me thinking afterward-- always the sign of a good read, when you can't get it out of your mind.

What I Loved:
World Building- Ms. Hibbs wove an intricate, creative world brought together with amazing descriptions and an addictive plot.
Unique Characters- Wonderful characters, main and secondary, made this book (and series) amazing. Full, three dimensional characters, flaws and all-- that's what truly addicts me to a book. Main character Ally has always been my favorite.
Blend of Supernatural & Mythology- I loved the breadth of supernatural creatures in the series. Mythic lore of all types blended together to form this fantasy world. It made for an intriguing plot and a never-ending source of interesting characters.
Fast-Pace- The story unfolded at a quick pace, with few lulls.

What I didn't like as much? Well really there wasn't a lot. I tended to skim once in a while in this last installment, more to get to the next scene than because I wasn't enjoying what I read. I'm sorry that it's over. If you haven't read this series, it's one I highly recommend!
