The moment that the short-lived apocalypse came to an end, life returned to normal. Mortals continues on with their oblivious existence while the earth healed and flowers bloomed again, all devastation instantly swept away. It was as if it had never happened. But it did. Luce knows. He's cursed to remember every moment, forced to live with everything he has done. Finding himself out of confinement, he's faced with a descision: where to call "home". Free will turns out not to be the freedom he expects when the only thing he wants doesn't know he exists. Serah woke up with no memory of where she came from or who she was before that moment. Struggling to adapt to the world as a mortal, she's haunted by a set of bright blue eyes that always seem to be watching her. She can't shake the feeling that they could be her salvation, if only she can remember who they belong to. Lucifer didn't fall from Grace alone, and he's not the only angel with a grudge. Nor is he the only one fascinated with his mortal.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
A fantastically beautiful ending to the Extinguish series, it lived up to all of my high exceptions after the phenomenal first book and just about superseded them. Lucifer's and Serah's story isn't a tradition tale of love beyond everything and anything else. Lucifer continues to struggle between the need to seek forgiveness and the feeling that he has done nothing to apologise for, whilst Serah struggles with her memory loss and finding out who she really is. This is a story of fighting for what you believe in, not being a pawn in someone else's game and having the courage to find redemption within yourself and others. Although not a traditional love story, Reignite has made its way into my heart and into my list of top romances, the only fault I could find in this book was that it was way too short! Whether your sins include wrath, pride, envy, lust, greed, sloth or glutton, this story will satiate all your cravings whilst leaving you begging for more.
