--- The real demons live within ---

Laurent. Time traveller. Devoted husband. Stubborn as the devil himself.
Beast. Kings of Hell MC president. Will stop at nothing to protect his family.

After everything Baal put them through, neither Laurent nor Beast considered ever making another pact with a demon, but in the spur of the moment, temptation becomes too great, and they decide on one more deal.

This time, with Mr. Magpie.

But the gift might prove to be more than they can handle. The danger to the human world has already strained their relationship, but Magpie’s offering brings out the worst in both Laurent and Beast. Confronted with each other’s flaws, they need to decide if, despite all they’ve been through together, perhaps they’re just not meant to be.

With the world on the brink of collapse, and their pact binding them in new and unexpected ways, they have to put their differences aside to stand a chance at saving their family.

Squee in delight for the final book of Kings of Hell MC. This series is absolutely amazing and I love all the couples. I can't even choose a favorite because every time I read the next book, the couple became my new favorite. 

Going in to this finale, I was expecting to be full of mayhem and action, so I was actually surprised that the plot isn't as jam pack with action and violence. We get some lovely down time between Laurent and Beast in the beginning and witnessing how their relationship developed over time and the challenges they face as a married couple. With Laurent making a special demand that totally threw me off and cause much frustration to Beast, the minor angst was delicious. I like reading couple problems instead of a smooth sailing relationship. There are some surprised thrown in and a certain character start to endear to me so much, but I don't want to spoil anything!

I was full of anxiety before I started on this and suffice to say, my worry was for naught. The authors really did all the character justice and didn't left out anyone. I'm pleased to say I love how things ended and the way the epilogue was plot out.
