The final book in the Wings in the Night series wrapped the story up very nicely (and I did a happy dance for getting a series complete). In Twilight Fulfilled we shift our focus to the deadly part of the mongrel twins, Brigit Poe and her power to destroy with a flick of her fingers has been assigned the task of killing Utanapishtim. Yep, it's a suicide mission, he's all powerful, can steal any powers he doesn't already have, and is just an overall tough guy. Oh, and did I mention he's lost his mind - totally insane - but I can't blame him after what he's been through.

Utanapishtim has paid dearly for the sin of creating the vampire race; imprisoned in a living death for centuries, driven to near madness. With a single white-hot glance, he immolates his descendants; and the vampire Armageddon begins.
Beautiful and deadly Brigit Poe, not wholly vampire but fiercely loyal to that shared bloodline, is called into action. She abhors yet cannot deny her destiny: to vanquish the once-great king of the immortals and save the vampire race.
Two warriors, equally matched in power and determination, are soon locked in an unwinnable battle, only to discover a passion so shocking it threatens every truth they’ve ever known; even as they must face one final battle that seems fated to end in death and heartbreak for them both.
But something happens when he meets Brigit. Sparks fly, intrigue is aroused, and he just doesn't want to kill her. So starts the battle within himself. Brigit pushing him one way - join the vampires and learn to live in this new era. And his mind, DPI, and the government pushing him another - detroy the vampires and become the ultimate weapon.
I love the very psychological aspect of this book. You understand Utanapishtim's confusion and worry over what to do. His connection with Brigit really the only thing holding his last thread of sanity in place. Their relationship was a lot different than ones from previous books, and it's going to stand out to me for a while.
Full of action, love, and sacrifice Twilight Fulfilled was an amazing way to close out the epic vampire series Wings in the Night. I hear there's a follow-up/spin-off that started and I think I'll be on to that one next!
