The final book in the Garnet Lacy series finds Garnet and Sebastian on their honeymoon. The plan is to fly from Minneapolis/St Paul to Austria for their honeymoon, but Garnet sees the Frost Giant, Fonn, sitting on the wing of plane. No one else can see him and her reaction causes the two of them to be removed from the plane, separated and investigated by the FBI.

Garnet is interviewed by her FBI friend, Gabriel Dominguez (who we met in the first book, Tall, Dark and Dead) and Sebastian is interviewed by some other agents.

The two end up spending their honeymoon in St Paul at the luxurious St Paul Hotel. Garnet convinces Sebastian that it would be fun to hang out and tour her old stomping grounds, but this will not be a quiet honeymoon.

The Illuminati are still out to get Sebastian, someone calls Immigration to claim that Sebastian is in the country illegally and Garnet runs into some old friends of hers. Some of the old friends wish her well, but others dont.

Soon Garnet finds herself questioning her past decisions and realizing that she hasnt always been the best she could be. Some of her past decisions (mostly casting spells of romance) have caused her to hurt people despite her good intentions. She begins to realize that she cannot live with two goddesses Lilith, with whom she has a blood bond, and Athena, with whom she has recently formed a bond. But which goddess does she want to lose and how exactly does one go about getting rid of a goddess one no longer wants?

And, will they every get to spend their honeymoon in Austria?

I enjoyed the conclusion to this series. I wasnt expecting the introspection on Garnets part and it was really interesting to see how it would play out and which goddess she would choose.

I have a small criticism, in that when Sebastians citizenship is question, Garnet insists that he is a citizen because he married her and uses the movie Green Card (which I havent seen) as an example. No one points out to her that marriage doesnt make you a citizen it just allows you to live legally in the US (and could get you a green card which allows you to legally work in the US.)

But that is a smaller criticism than my criticism of the publishers choice to change the artwork for the books. (Ive met the author the publisher pushed the cover, not her.) For some strange reason, they went from the cartoony and leggy, short, dark-haired Garnet in funky clothes to a more romance novel women with really long brown hair in a pearlized up-do wearing a frilly pink gown and an ungodly long left arm. They even changed the font-style. Im not sure what compelled the change you would think theyd want the book to be the same style so people would recognize it as part of the series.

The final book in the Garnet Lacey series. Garnet and Sebastian have finally married and are on their way to Austria for the honeymoon. Or so they think. Garnet sees Fonn, a Frost Giant, on the wing of the plane and refuses to fly. This leads to questioning by Homeland Security and the FBI. Total chaos follows as the couple stays in St Paul. Good ending for the series and an enjoyable read. 4 stars
