The final instalment of Zeth & Sloane's story is here! With Lacey missing and everything falling apart, Sloane and Zeth will do everything they can to get her back. If that includes facing off against Charlie Holsan, the DEA, and anyone else who gets in their way, then so be it.

I always knew reading the final book in the series wasn't going to be easy, I've become so invested in the characters Callie Hart has created and completely engrossed in the story and situations they find themselves in. In going into Collateral with the situation as it stood at the ending of Fallen, I knew the prices would be high and maybe the cost too great.

In truth I don't know where to start in reviewing this because as usual I don't want to say too much, but let's get the most important thing out of the way first....It's brilliant! Hang on to your seats, brilliant! For a series that I found built in strength, intrigue and suspense with every book, it would either sink or soar at the last hurdle and luckily for me, it was the latter. There were moments of extreme highs and devastating emotional lows and honestly times where I had to take a moment to cry, quite frankly.

In all the drama and craziness that occurs, the relationships of this dysfunctional gang was surprising a major focus for me. I love how much they care about each other and will always be there when needed. Zeth has never been in a more vulnerable position and on top of that we see him facing his own personal demons head on, all the while protecting what is his.

"And despite that, despite the brutality of his past and his upbringing, there is still a kindness inside him. He protected me. He fought for me. He found my sister, and he’s carried me through so much."

Zeth and Sloane's dynamic also takes on a new form, the sexual chemistry between is still present but the intimacy in their relationship matures. Zeth as impossible as it may seem, is even more desirable and takes on the role of the Dark version of Prince Charming.

There is some action that takes place off camera and rather than feel cheated, it rather ties in nicely with what will be the spin off to this series and will be Rebel's story to tell; which I'm very much looking forward to.

The Blood & Roses series is one of my favourites, it's been a crazy ride and though it may be the end of Zeth & Sloane's story, I seriously hope we see more of them in the future.
