Book Description

5 Feb 2013 Personal Demons Novels (Book 3)
In this final installment of the thrilling, edgy "Personal Demons" series, the battle between Heaven and Hell has become critical, and Frannie Cavanaugh is right at the centre of it. With the help of the powerful angel Gabe and demon-turned-mortal Luc, Frannie has been able to stay one step ahead of the forces of Hell. But when the demons killed Frannie's best friend and destroyed her brother, they raised the stakes. If Frannie wants to keep her family and friends safe, she knows she has no choice but to go on the run. Their best defence is the power Frannie has been struggling to master, but her attempts to hone her skill go horribly awry. If Frannie doesn't learn fast, the consequences could be devastating - even apocalyptic. What happens when you can't outrun Hell ...or trust the ones you love?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab ending to the series 15 Jun 2012
By Book Angel Emma VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book picks up the plot from the exact point Original Sin finishes, there is very little recapping so it is essential to read the previous books first in order to fully appreciate the plot and interactions. The amount of guilt the three main characters apportion to themselves at the start was a little annoying but understandable. Each of them feeling responsible for their current situation. Touches of sarcastic humor lighten the guilt ridden tension.
One of the things that stand out with this series for me is Lisa's ability to tell the story from 3 different viewpoints, each picking up the story a the exact point the previous character left it off. I did feel that Gabe abused his position of protector in a way. Although Frannie needed his calming presence and her need to gain peace where contributing factors; it is Gabe's actions that cross the acceptable boundary. It made me angry as I think that men that take advantage of women who are in a vulnerable state are little more than scum.

There are plenty of twists and turns alongside an explosion of revelations that leave you wondering why you didn't pick up on these points earlier as the clues are there and the way the plot unraveled made perfect sense.

The way in which the characters both main and peripheral grow and develop is a credit to Lisa's writing talent. Although some aspects of the plot were unexpected they worked brilliantly in context of the story as a whole tying every single outstanding plot thread together.

The action and emotion kept the pace flowing quickly, there were times when I couldn't turn the pages fast enough in order to find out what happened next.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best endings ever... 10 Sep 2012
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I was incredibly lucky to win the last ARC of Last Rite from Lisa Desrochers herself many months ago now and I immediately devoured the book in one sitting. I'm a HUGE fan of this book series and it goes without saying that if you haven't read Personal Demons or Original Sin, please go no further as you will encounter spoilers.

If you're still with me, you'll know that this is the last book in the trilogy which makes it a bittersweet reading experience. I mean, I was dying to know what happened but desperate for it not to end at the same time. Luc had me from his very first line in Personal Demons and I've loved him ever since.

Last Rite picks up exactly where Original Sin left off with Frannie, Luc and Gabe on the run from Lucifer and his minions. Lucifer wants Frannie and will stop at nothing until he has her so that he can use her sway to his own end. Everyone is lying in order to save each other and at times, you'll want to knock their heads together. Gabe is becoming human, Luc is frustrated at still being human as it renders him helpless and Frannie would probably like to be just human at this point! In the midst of everything, Lucifer manages to trick Frannie into going home and then the mother of all showdowns comes into play. A lot of authors joke about killing off their characters and how "everyone dies in the end". It's kind of not far from the truth but in a book about heaven and hell, it's not necessarily being dead that matters but what side you're on ;)

Prepare to laugh, cry and generally be a mess by the end of this book. Last Rite if full of angst and incredible tension with nonstop action and a sense of profoundness. With one of the best endings I've ever read, this book will give you ALL THE FEELS and then some. I'm gutted to see the end of this series and I'm still hoping that Lisa might revisit it one day but in the meantime, I want to say thank you to her for writing the story as I've loved every minute of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Last Rite 25 Jun 2012
By Tamela Mccann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Last Rite is the final book in the Personal Demons trilogy, picking up with Frannie and Luc leaving Haden to escape the forces of Hell which are after Frannie for her Sway (her ability to get others to do what she wants). The three hop a plane after a wild chase and end up in Florida where Gabe hopes to help Frannie refine her skills and Luc attempts to push her away so he can regain his former demon powers (in order to help save her). Of course things do not go as planned: Luc cannot stay away from Frannie, Gabe finds himself in danger of losing his wings because of his love for Frannie, and Lucifer sends fallen angel Matt (Frannie's twin) to track her down. When Frannie discovers that the family she left behind in Haden is in danger, she decides it is up to her to save them however she can.

For all that's going on, the first third of this book moves a bit slowly, with Gabe and Luc both spending too much time lusting after Frannie rather than coming up with a viable solution to keep her from Lucifer's clutches. In fact, though there is some necessary set up during the time Frannie is in Florida, it's not until she arrives back in Haden that things begin to move with a capital M. Frannie's entire family becomes involved in the ultimate battle of good vs. evil, and no one is quite sure what Frannie should do or how she should do it. There are some family secrets revealed, all of which are surprising and welcome, and some intense moments as souls are bargained for and decisions are made. I literally could not put the book down for the final 100 pages...I had to know what happened next!

Still, there are some issues I have with all the final threads, and this is a spoiler warning...

I had to wonder Why Frannie? If all her sisters and brother had special powers, thanks to her dad and grandfather, then why should the third daughter of the family be the One? I also had to wonder why Frannie found it so hard to trust the two men who had only been trying to help her for so long. I also felt the entire sub story with Faith was sorta odd...she just didn't seem necessary to the story. And only under the guise of Free Will do I understand what happened with Luc and Frannie and the hospital scenes...really, was there a decision that had to be made?

Last Rite is a fitting ending to a great trilogy, despite its minor flaws. The characters are compelling and the ties of family permeate the entire story. I loved this series and look forward to reading anything and everything Ms. Desrochers writes in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great conclusion! 30 Jun 2012
By Brittany @ Spare Time Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Last Rite was the conclusion to this series. And it was awesome! The story took so many crazy turns that I never saw coming! Both Gabe and Luc struggle with their feelings for Frannie and trying to the the right thing. Frannie's family also played a much bigger role in this book and it was nice to see. Some big decisions were made here and not everyone survives!

Like I said both Gabe and Luc are struggling with their feelings for Frannie. They are torn between doing the right thing to keep her safe and having broken hearts. This left me yelling at the book at both of them when they were being stupid boys! AH! So frustrating. Because it usually ended up with everyone feeling bad and heartbroken! I don't want to ruin the story by saying who she ends up with so you will just have to read it to find out!

I really enjoyed how Frannie's family played a bigger role in this story. They were awesome characters! Maggie and Grace proved to be very interesting. Faith was also a really good character. I felt so bad for her! Especially at the end.

The ending of this story will blow your mind! It was such a perfect ending. I couldn't have been happier! I am sad to see the series end but, I guess all good things come to an end. This was such a good series, I would recommend it to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reading with Tequila 16 July 2012
By Jennifer Sicurella - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Why read: Received for review

What impressed me: Last Rite finally answered all my burning questions, and managed to do so in a surprising manner. Most importantly, what is Frannie's purpose in the grand scheme of things. It was wonderful to finally see exactly what her power could do and what that meant for both good and evil.

What disappointed me: I actually had to check to make sure this was the final book in the series. You'd expect that the end of a series would have more finality that Last Rite did. It ended well, but left the future wide open which always annoys me. And of course, the romance has always kind of irked me throughout the series and continued the trend right to the very end.

Recommended: Yes. If you've read this far, you'll want to know what happens with Frannie, Luc and Gabe.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love angel-deomon mythology go pick it up 25 Jun 2012
By Mundie Moms & Mundie Kids Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
*reviewed for MM's by Sophie:

Dear Frannie,

When I read Personal Demons, I had to write a letter to Luc because, well a) I'm a Mundie Mom and b) Demon Boys usually spell trouble. But, Luc was lovely and conflicted and oh, Frannie, I know you know exactly what I'm talking about. And yes, he still spelled t-r-o-u-b-l-e.

Katie wrote a letter to your author, Lisa Desrochers, after she finished Original Sin, because let's face it, Katie was in still in shock at the ending.

I decided to write this letter to you because you are no longer the nave, young girl we met in Personal Demons. Oh no, Frannie, you are mature and apprehensive and fiercely protective of the ones you love. And Mundie Moms have to love that.

When all Hell, literally breaks loose, you hold your own. Okay quick aside, kiddo. Gabe? Gabe? Gabe! I didn't expect he'd cause me to tear up. I know why you love him - his protection and safety (okay, and hotness) made me understand the sacrifice he made to stay with you. He spells trouble in an entirely different way.

I don't want to give anything away, but there's a Really Bad Guy in the story and the way Lisa presented him quickly made him one of my very favorite antagonists. I have a long list, trust me on this, and he remains near the top. He was untrustworthy and seductive and OMHeavens funny. Yes, in the middle of a holy-heck-what-is-going-to-happen-here scene, I found myself giggling out loud. Be sure to tell Lisa that part because her comic timing was pitch-perfect.

Frannie, may I mention your family? You know how much I love them (and particularly, Grandpa) and there's a lovely back-story that made everything make so much sense. Again, I have to thank Lisa because she revealed pieces of a puzzle in the midst of an action sequence that didn't let up, and I got to have that amazing feeling of "OOOOOOH, I get it."

I need to end this before I give up spoilers (I've already edited out a few). I only have one question left - who was the better kisser, Luc or Gabe? Oh, never mind, I think a little demon may have whispered the answer in my ear.

(Aside to MMs: If you love angel-demon mythology (and I know you do), go pick up the Personal Demons series. You guys need to meet Luc, Gabe and Frannie. This summer, turn up the air conditioning and enjoy one hell of a ride.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good 24 Jun 2012
By Savannah (Books With Bite) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the last book in the personal demons series. I have to admit right off the bat that I did not enjoy this book as much as I thought. I had some serious problems with Frannie for one and the plot for me, I just didn't connect.

Frannie has grown much. She has some big descions to make. As a reader of this series, I am not happy with some of descions that Frannie made. I did however, enjoy Frannie learning so much. Many secrets are exposed and it's nince to see Frannie handle everything with such grace.

The love interest. Not going to spoil it, but I did like it. I am happy with what Frannie chose.

I'll leave it at that.

The plot of this book did not enjoy so much. There are some parts of the book that rubbed me the wrong way. But again, that just me.

Last Rite is a great book. Filled with much action, love and sarcrafice, Last Rite takes the reader for one heck of a ride. Explosive from start to finish, Last Rite is great!
