It has taken a few years, but there is finally a conclusion to the Daughters of the Moon series, as well as closure for its tie-in, Sons of the Dark. In The Final Eclipse, Vanessa and Serena finally find a way to flee Nefandus, the world the Atrox has kept them captive in, but only Vanessa manages to succeed in doing so. The situation becomes more dire back in L.A. when Vanessa discovers that not only is the moon being eclipsed permanently, much to the joy of the Atrox and its Followers, but that her seventeenth birthday is fast approaching. Any dedicated fan knows that that's a crucial day for a Daughter of the Moon -- if Vanessa isn't able to save Serena and stop the final eclipse before then, she will have to make a choice about her destiny that could very well keep her from being able to. This book is definitely the darkest in the series in terms of plot and character development, but Ewing still manages to weave in enough humor and whimsy to appease her readers. There are even situations that mirror those from the first book, making it feel more full-circle and reminding us that it really is the end. Many dangling plot-points are answered, and even though a couple were never addressed, having them be would have just made the book too clunky. Readers will regularly find themselves elated, shocked, and saddened by the events in the book, leaving them wanting more, but in a good way. After living with these characters for thirteen books (seventeen if you include the spin-off), I find myself missing them like an old friend, unable to stop thinking about the final book no matter how much time passes. The Final Eclipse is a worthy end to an excellent series that any fan would be a fool to miss out on.
