Review
ABSOLUTION, by Jennifer Laurens, is the third and final book of the Heavenly Series. I am such a fan of this series and author. I was both pleased and sad to see the end of this series. I raced through this novel to get to the final conclusion and I have to say it was definitely bittersweet.

The change in Zoe from Heavenly through Absolution is magnanimous. In this book, she is still fighting against Albert who is stepping up his game in the pursuit of her soul. He uses her family to try and break her will. She is definitely stronger and I was rooting for her to not give up hope.

Zoe's relationship with Weston is more strained than ever since she told him about Matthias and also the jealous Britt is even more murderous than before. I really love this couple together. I would have never expected them to be together because of what happened in Heavenly but I am very happy with the outcome.

Laurens wrapped up this series perfectly. It had a bittersweet ending but I couldn't imagine it happening any other way. Fans of this series will definitely love this book.
