I loved this whole series and falling into the world of angels, am so disappointed for it to be over.

I can't believe it's over! It was sooo good! It kept me hooked, it was surprising me, and I was left feeling completely satisfied with how this series ended. From the awkward moments that made me cringe, to the tears I shed, these books are some of the best I've read. I love Webster, I love how Angela is alright in the end and back to normal for the most part. I love Christian. I love Tucker. Jeffery is home and Clara shows that she can be seriously BA when she wants to. She turned a Black Wing back to the side of good for Pete's sake. (I think she should do the same for Samjeeza even though he may resist at first.) In the end, all of the evil Triplare are gone besides Desmond, Tucker and Clara get together and everyone's lives are great.
Now. To make it even better. This is the real ending in my mind.
Tucker and Clara love each other and have three adorable kids who are stronger than Quartius but weaker than Dimidus, then Tucker dies at age 65-ish. Clara grieves and through the help if her best friend, Christian, learns to live life without her cowboy. Then, of course, at around age 75, Clara and Christian get married and have two little Triplare kids of their own, being together for the rest of their lives. This way she has a life and can be with both guys she truly loves. (I just realized, that because Angela and Christian are siblings, Clara has dated the brothers of her best friends.)
Yup. That's how it goes. I love the series and would definitely recommend it.

The ending left me with sadness and grief. I'm happy for Clara and Tucker but I don't get to know what happens to Jeffery and most importantly, Christian. I feel sad for him that he's left alone or he chose to be, either way, I can't get over the fact that he deserved more or at least I expected more for him in the end. I almost cried at the ending which hasn't happened for a long long time for a book character.
The part where Clara, Angela, Web and Tucker are shown after 9 years since Tucker came back to life, Cynthia Hand doesn't mention anything about Jeffery and Christian, again! Also, Billy should have been addressed IMO that she's moved to heaven or a better life.
I hope there's a spin off series or another book where they finally show lives lead by Jeffery and Christian. Both of them deserve more than what they got.

This book had me laughing, smiling, crying, and dying of feels. I enjoyed all the detailed work put into this book.

I just LOVED this book! The part nearing to the end had me crying, but I'm glad the ending was happy for Clara. I just wish the series never ended.

This series was quite exciting! I enjoyed it a lot! But this last book seemed to be a bit of a disappointment; the ending seemed to have thrown me off. I believe the ending could have been better. Overall it was a good read, there were many interesting plot twists. I am looking forward to reading other books written by Cynthia Hand! ;)

This book was just plan amazing! There were so many twists that I wasn't expecting. By the end I couldn't even decide whether I wanted her to end up with Tucker or Christian,even though the whole series I was hoping she'd end up with Tucker. This book showed a side of Christian we hadn't really seen before, and I loved it.

I liked the ending. I know it was cheesy, unexpected, and the dark moody guy didn`t win the day. I can`t say that I care - we got an interesting story and sometimes to see the nice guy come in first, the baby saved, and all that jazz is what you want. Especially when it is so well written. Loved the scene where she meets her mom back in the past, fun.

This gave the ending that the Mercy series lacked. Boundless did a great job at building up to the fight and then did not disappoint in the aftermath. Excellent angel trilogy.

This series has been a wonderful journey to follow of Cynthia Hand's adaptation of angel-bloods roaming the earth trying to fulfill their destiny. This book ends the battle between the angel-bloods and black wings and we finally find out who Clara ends up with. Because I didn't like Hand's choice of eternal love for Clara, I gave this book a rating of 4.75 although it would have received a 5 with it ended the way I wanted it to.

So often we only do what we think is expected of us, when we are capable of so much more.
