Synopsis (Goodreads):
The gods are rallying to take down Marion, their ally and voice in the mortal worlds. She’s gotten her memories back to disastrous results. She’s destroying the faerie courts, and the rest of the universe is next. The other deities want Seth—also known as the God of Death—to stop Marion before she breaks something that can’t be fixed.

Unfortunately, when Marion looks at Seth with those eyes and insists that she’s not doing anything wrong, he wants to believe her. Marion claims she isn’t trying to rewrite history. She’s protecting it.

Seth wants to trust Marion. It’s only the universe that’s at stake, after all. And some women are worth shattering worlds over…
Thoughts on Cast in Godfire: Holy wow, this series had some REALLY big things happen during it. In the sense that if I met Marion in a dark alley, I'd run screaming in the other direction because THINGS HAPPEN when she's around. War and bloodshed and beheadings and trying to end the world as everyone knows it.

Marion's a complicated lady.

Dangerous, too. But let's not put labels on the woman who fell in love with Death and had so many plans in motion that no one knew whether she was coming or going.

Speaking of Seth, I spent the bulk of this book wondering if his trust in Marion was misplaced. I SO wanted it to turn out all right because Seth deserved a happily ever after. But I didn't know, man. I didn't know.

Also, Konig can suck it. I feel no pity for the guy. He orchestrated some very bad events and he continually saw himself as entitled to the things he was taking. I can't recall the last time I disliked a character as thoroughly as I disliked him. In the love to hate sort of way, of course.

I'm sad to see this series end, but it ended SO well. Plenty of danger and heartache and resolution for everyone. *thumbs up*
