Brielle can’t help but see the Celestial realm. Even without the halo, it’s everywhere she looks. And with the heavens above Stratus ravaged by war, Brielle wishes for another gift, any gift. Because Jake is gone. The only boy she’s ever loved has been taken by the demon, Damien—and she knows if she ever wants to see him again, she must fight.
But fighting is so hard when everything you see makes you afraid.
When she receives instructions from the Throne Room leading her to Jake, she unknowingly walks into a diabolical and heartbreaking trap. Then the Prince of Darkness himself offers Brielle a halo of his own making. With the dark halo, she won’t have to see the fear and brokenness that surround her. She’ll be free of that unbearable burden. And it comes with a promise: the guarantee of a life with Jake.
When confusing details about Jake’s past emerge, and the battle above reaches a fever pitch, Brielle is forced to make a choice. Will she choose the dark halo and the ignorance that comes with it, or will she choose to live with her eyes wide open and trust the Creator’s design—even if it means a future without Jake?
Jake is gone. The Sabres continue to sing and fight while the terristial veil keeps thinning. Breille is barely going on and keeps getting consumed with thoughts of Jake being taken but she continues to worship and pray. Canaan leaves Breille in charge of the chest so that they stay in communication with the Throne Room. Stratus is beeing terrorized by nightmares and Breille must show her faith in overcoming the fear that is trying to take them all.
Marco has trusted in Olivia to take him to kill Henry but something always gets in his way. When he thinks that he is finally going to get his revenge, Olivia takes him to the lighthouse where they find themselves in a situation they can't run from. Jake is tied up in the lighthouse with Damien keeping him captive but now that Olivia brought Damien the halo, he is on a mission to try and corrupt the halo.
Breille unites with her pastor and closest friends to believe in the miracles God is capable of, to pray and continue to fight against darkness. While waiting and praying, some pages torn out of Ali's journal show up in the chest with Olivia's phone number and the name of the lighthouse. With time getting closer to when Damien takes Jake to "the Prince" aka Satan, everyone is on a mad scramble to rescue Jake and win the war against Satan.
In each book there has been something that really stood out to me. In this book it was the power of prayer. When our prayers aren't instantly answered, we begin to doubt. This book showed that we have to trust in God and know that He has it covered. We have to continue to pray even when we feel like we are alone or our prayers weren't answered. Another thing that stood out was worship. It is so easy to underestimate the power that is behind worship. Just like we fight our battles on our knees, we also right with our praise. Nothing can come against our songs of worship.
I really loved this book, well I loved the whole series. This is definitely a book I think everyone should read. I hope ya'll love it as much as I did.
