Summary: (from goodreads) It all comes down to this. 

Vlad’s running out of time. The Elysian Council has given him weeks to live, and that’s if the Slayer Society doesn’t kill him – along with all the citizens of Bathory – first. Then there’s the issue of Vlad’s father, who may or may not still be alive after all these years, and oh yeah, that tiny little detail in the Pravus prophecy about Vlad enslaving Vampire kind and the human race. So much for college applications.

In this epic finale to Heather Brewer’s heart-stopping Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, dark secrets will be revealed, old friends will become enemies, and warm blood will run cold. Just be careful it isn’t yours.

I REALLY loved the ending to this series! Brilliant job, Heather! I don't want to give too much away, but so much happens in this book that you have to really pay attention while you read or you'll have to go back.

In this final book in the series, a bad vampire and somewhat questionable vampire die, a good vampire returns and Vlad becomes the most powerful vampire of all. Vlad and Joss come to an agreement and Joss explains why he has to complete his task or the whole town will be in danger.

The group all get to dress up for Halloween at school this year. They all go to Matthew's house for his Halloween party and Vlad even takes a date.

Some of the visions Vlad was having were starting to come true, and it scared the daylights out of him.

There's a huge battle towards the end and some key characters suffer. I was shocked at a few of the deaths and cried a lot while reading the last 1/3 of the book. I was pleased with a few of the things that happened, but saddened by some of the losses. The ending was bittersweet, but at least the series ended on a happy note, sort of.
