Heaven gives a whole lot more meaningful reason to fight and stay for the one you love. This final book creates a new way of love, friendship, and sacrifice. It embodies a great faith from the decisions of God to every humankind and angels. The challenges that God gives to them is a test between devotion to their duty and the love that binds them until the end. Married life have never been this challenging for the star-crossed lovers, despite from all of it they still form a strong bond between them and also to their family. The drastic decisions of Bethany and Xavier leads to a disastrous results which costs some lives.

Bethany and Xavier from the first book are the young and innocent star-crossed lovers that defies an enormous emotions between them. They feel so much hope and love from everything that they are ready from every obstacles that might come. As the sequel goes by until this very end they became mature, brave, and courageous. Believing their faith and love is what I witness the most from this trilogy and I love that. It shows that once every people have realize they're entire existence for another, nothing can stop them to prove it to everyone.

The Seven has so much apathy within them. They feel no remorse, fear, and hate. The only thing that drives them on cue is their duty to maintain a balance between human and celestial beings. It seems to me that they are all full trained soldiers tested from millennia to prove themselves and to serve God. But I think that at some point they all wanted to create a balanced world for everyone of us. The only problem is that they take no considerations to anyone, and that feels not right.

I do have some questions hanging around on my silly mind after I finished it though. I wonder what are the other plans of God for Bethany and Xavier, especially Xavier since he is discovered as more than a human. Another thing that bugs me is about Gabriel and Molly, how did those two characters went well after since Gabriel showed affections to Molly. Those are things that I keep on thinking about.

As I finished this book, I've never felt more contented on how an angel can sacrifice anything or even the most sacred things within for the one they love.
