Infinite: Erica Crouch

**ARC copy provided by author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**

Erica Crouch has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Through the development of this series, she has made me laugh, and most recently, cry. This last book will make you cry. If you think I am wrong I dare you to keep a straight face.

The last installment in this series was pretty action packed. It was done in alternating viewpoints (Lilith, Az, and Pen) and I'm not sure whose was more intriguing. I mean, most of Lilith's was brutal, but some of the quotes took my breath away.

     "One way or another, all will kneel before me. I want to hear their kneecaps break as they fall at my feet in genuflection..."

I mean holy shit Lilith. Lilith was harsh, breaking the world apart so it could be hers, and hers alone. I liked the whole strong female who don't need no man vibe she gave off, but she was also insane. Like, batshit crazy. She had no fear, and nothing to lose. She was ruthless, and if you didn't do what she wanted you were dead.

And then there was Az.

     "Hell is here, and we leave no survivors."

I loved his development in this book. He was hard to like, but hard to dislike. (Without giving away any spoilers) Az's ending was hard for me to accept. I wanted a happily ever after. But I guess I'll have to settle for the happy. I liked Az'z perspective quite a bit. The author did a great job of having him slowly going insane, and we were able to watch it from several perspectives. He was up and down and just generally insane.

And we can't forget Pen! She and Michael were as great as ever, but in this book they were so much stronger. Pen stepped up and took control of New Genesis and herself. She didn't rely on everyone else to help her make decisions. She owned up to what she did, and did what she had to do. Some of it was brutal.

Her poetry was crazy amazing.

     "You contain galaxies on your shoulders
          In freckles and stars"

Pen was much more mature in this one. She grew more and more stable, more and more sure of herself as the book went on. I was in awe that she made it through some of the things she was forced to do. I wasn't happy with her and Michael's ending either. It may have been happy, and what the characters wanted but I thought they deserved better and I wanted more!

I love this series so much. I'm so excited to follow this author and read whatever else she writes. She has become such an amazing writer, even just after a few book. I know she will only get better! These are by far the best angel book I've ever read. If you haven't started this series it now! Now that I don't have any more of this series to look forward to I just don't know what to do.
