Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick (Hush, Hush book 4)

SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't read the first three books in the Hush, Hush series, Stop! I don't want to ruin the conclusion for you.

“Will love conquer all?”
With Cheshuan starting in less than 72 hours, Nora Gray finds herself in the middle of a brewing war between the Nephilim and fallen angels. Coerced by her biological father into becoming a pureblood Nephil, Nora swore an oath to take over Hank Millar’s army at his death. Failure to comply to lead the Nephilim army will result in not only her death but her mother’s as well. Quickly realizing she has no creditability with the Nephilim and a forbidden relationship with Patch, Nora finds herself turning to her right-hand man, Dante Matterazzi.
Having to walk a fine line between the Nephilim and the archangels, Nora wants to avoid a war and death at all costs. Staging a public break-up with Patch, he and Nora work on opposite sides to bring about the same resolution. But when Nora becomes wrapped up in her newfound power and position, will she get carried away or can she find her way back to Patch?

Eternally Yours by Cate Tiernan (Immortal Beloved book 3)

SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t read the first two books in the series, Immortal Beloved and Darkness Falls, Stop! I don’t want to ruin a great series for you.

“Ancient evil. How odd that it actually exists. But it does.”

It has been one month since that terrible night in Boston with Incy. Nastasya is back at River’s Edge trying to put the shattered pieces of her life back together. Between unlocking the secrets of her family’s magickal history and shamelessly flirting with the incredibly hot Viking raider Reyn, Nas discovers that she alone has the power to convert her bad girl persona into becoming a better person. Just as she begins her transformation, word comes that someone is killing immortals around the world and Nastasya and her friends at River’s Edge may be next.

Soon River’s older brother, Ottavio, the head of the Genoa house, arrives and voices his suspicions about Nastasya. He is soon followed by the remaining brothers; Daniel, Joshua and Roberto. It is obvious that Joshua and Reyn would like to tear each other's throats out and Nas realizes that Roberto is a face from her past. When it becomes apparent that whoever is targeting the immortals has an inside connection at River’s Edge, Nastasya finds it in herself to fight back. But with Reyn doggedly pursing her, can she also protect her heart?

Told once again from Nastasya’s snarky point of view, long simmering questions are answered in this conclusion to the series.
