The Reckoning (The Fahllen #2) by M. Leighton

Carson Porter thought she’d had one of her most challenging years to date when she began her transformation into a reaper, but little did she know her battle had only just begun.
Faced with changes in her boyfriend, Derek, the fear of her sister being able to steal her powers through mirrors and having to fight her every step of the way to rescue even one soul, Carson is ready to throw in the towel.  Only she can’t.  During a visit from an angel, Carson learns that her destiny is far more important than even she realized—and far more deadly.  Can she dig deep within herself for the strength and the perseverance that she’ll need to carry out her mission?  And will she have to do so without Derek or can she recover the man she’d once loved so desperately?  Find out in the exciting conclusion of the Fahllen series, The Reckoning.

My Review 
OMG - I LOVE LOVE LOVED it!!!! This is such a wonderful, passionate story! It's so full of heartache but instead of letting all it bring her down, Carson remains filled with hope & faith that she can accomplish everything she was meant to do. And very determined to keep Derek beside her despite all the complications they encounter. There were several scenes that nearly made my heart stop beating, I was so invested in the story. And many times the emotions made me feel a little dizzy or maybe I just get a little light-headed reading about Derek....ahhhh Derek. He is the perfect bad boy on the outside, loyal & perfect heart on the inside. And Carson is one of the strongest heroines I have ever seen. Together they are just amazing and even though I'm sad to see their story come to an end, this conclusion was just as beautiful as the cover of the book itself!
