I love it when a series builds on itself well, and in the conclusion on the Kingdom Come trilogy, growth is made, secrets are revealed, and a satisfying conclusion is laid out for readers.
In My Opinion…
Julia White has acknowledged and accepted her place fighting beside heaven’s warrior angels. And while she’s learned some hard lessons, she still tends to play the lone ranger and face the fight on her own.
Lucifer isn’t the only one who wants something from the White family. And Julia isn’t sure who she can trust.
One concept Earl explores (especially in the second and third books of the trilogy) is Grace (given to humans) and Glory (given to angels). They hybrids have both—and the devil and his minions want to obtain it all.
This series builds well, and in When Fire Rains Down, the battles are bigger and the stakes are higher as Julia, her family, and her friends fight for the lives of the citizens of Shady Grove. The town’s history is revealed and, while it wasn’t at all what I was expecting, the ending makes sense as Julia realizes the gift and power in free will.
These books serve as a reminder of the unseen battles fought around and for us.

About the Book
The little town of Shady Creek is under attack by Lucifer and his demons. To save the people she loves, human-angel Hybrid Julia must rescue their kidnapped Guardian Angels, even when it means defying her father.
Trouble is, he knows only too much about Hell’s perils. When a demon sucks Julia into a cosmic vacuum, the experience leaves an indelible blight she dares not mention for fear of losing her place on the angelic rescue team.
As a growing demon army surrounds Shady Creek, Julia’s feelings for her own Guardian become all too real and dangerous. But the cosmic imbalance fueled by Hybrid Angels, Rogue Guardians and Warriors is already depleting the strength of the rescue team. And there’s no room for distraction when the mission is to get into Hell–and out again.
For the sake of the mission, Julia must face the truth of the Hybrids’ existence. Because nobody will be safe unless she can trust the gift of free will–for others and for herself–in this end-of-the-world finale to The Legend of Shady Creek Trilogy.
