A brilliant ending to a fatastic trilogy that I was very sad to see end. I haven't been this enthralled in a series of books for quite some time! I'd love to see more adventures with Elizabeth and Cynara and really hope Mr. Straatman may one day revisit these rich characters.

I haven't been able to put the book down. Georges' writing is fantastic and the description of the scenes are such that they actually give you a clear picture of what you are reading. I'll post another review once I finish the book and I am sure that it will be good ending which will keep me from putting the book down

The trilogy is done, and the ending was totally unexpected. The author keeps you on edge throughout the etire trilogy and has you thirsting for more. In the end you are left very satisfied in the way the author ends the journey we started with Cynara, Elizabeth and he rest of the characters. If you have not read this series, put it at the top of your list for must reads, you won't be disappointed.

The author is a gifted story teller along with an amazing imagination which permeates through the last book of The Converging Trilogy, "Closures In Blood". I will focus my review on the events of the novel I found intriguing and thoroughly entertaining and less on the plot.

First a little background information. At the end of bk#2 of the trilogy, Elizabeth killed herself instead of her son which despite being evil she could not bring herself to do. Nathaniel was one of Cynara's enemies who also held Elizabeth under her dark, evil spell. Once free of Cynara's hold on her she spent five years as an immortal during which she developed compassion, debated moral consequences to her actions and became a very caring entity.

Few authors can portray a character like Elizabeth for almost two entire novels then convince a reader that the deep down moral fabric of the character is in essence very pure. Author George Straatman achieved this very successfully.

In "Closures In Blood", Elizabeth faces a complex scheme by demons who are afraid of her. Despite the overwhelming odds and danger, she endures extreme sacrifice to find her lost love David Simpson.

One of many surprises the book contains is the appearance of Artemis (Goddess of the Moon) who's following is a group of women called the Wiccans. Many were shot or set on fire by a lunatic evangelist called Bobby Ingram.

He is one of my favorite characters, a revolutionary evangelist who broadcasts on the news and radio for his extremist followers to take up arms against Elizabeth as God's enemy. His speeches reflected his insanity and reminds me of Waco, Texas.

Another event that I found very fascinating is when Cynara (freed by Elizabeth to help her make retribution to David) and Elizabeth melted into transparent separate pools. The pools then started to form what became an eagle and an owl. A perfect disguise to try to elude the many enemies.

In the end Elizabeth endures attacks from Bobby Ingram's thousands of followers, scores of demons and a person who can astral project themselves and a trained assassin named Jurgen. Will she succeed in her quest? Highly recommended to anyone who likes paranormal and/or horror novels. A great conclusion to a very well written triolgy.
