This is the fourth and final book in the End of Eternity series! No more cliffhangers.
Surrendering herself to the monster that has destroyed her family, Carmen follows his commands while secretly hoping for a moment when she can gain the upper hand. Having reached her final breaking point, she will take no more of watching her loved ones get hurt because of one depraved man's psychotic behavior. Carmen takes matters into her own hands, and lies in wait for the moment when she can make her move and end this.
And she will end this: once and for all.
In the meantime, Owen is hurt and confused by Carmen's sudden rejection, and considers reconciling with his girlfriend Caroline and getting married to her. He realizes that things might have moved too quickly with Carmen, and that maybe he should rekindle the relationship he has had for several years, instead of diving headfirst into something new and being unsure of the outcome...
