Grace by Ava Martell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
To Hell and Back
This story had everything, it had the epic romance between Lucifer and Grace. It had angst with Lucifer being afraid that Grace wouldn’t be able to love the true him that he had been in the past and was going to have to be again in the fight against the fallen that escaped from Hell. I was cursing Ava Martell for making me love this series so much and making me cry like a baby so soon after starting this book. It really “has all the feels” as I have heard people say.
The story centers around Grace and Lucifer again, but this time it is after they are already in love and Grace has already gone through the spell where she has seen everything Lucifer has done and been through. She still loves Lucifer and has told him that, but after the spell she saw his life of thousands of years in a very short time then she sort of locked it up in her mind and hasn’t gone back to it.
So Grace saw some of the things he did in Hell as the Devil and when he was on Earth committing sins of lust and gluttony but she didn’t really stop to take it in. Lucifer is afraid that once she does, or if she sees how hard he has to be to take down the fallen, she won’t love him.
Lucifer walks away to think and doesn’t return for a while and that is when the story really takes off. I am not going to give away any spoilers but to say it is awesome. I knew Grace was a fighter but she is surprisingly resilient and awesome in her own right.
The adventure in this story was better than in the first three, and I can’t wait for the next one. It should be epic. Also, I was right about where Gabriel was hiding, if you read my review of Phenex. 😇
I received an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
