Marley Canton is done being a victim. A year and a half has passed since she discovered
her ability to nullify power in those who aren’t supposed to have it. She’s now on a quest not only to stop the brats who’ve become addicted to goddess power, but also to find the source of their addiction.

Like Marley, Gage Samargo is tracking down the goddess who went rogue decades ago. Insane with too much power from the sun, she’s selling that energy to Gage’s younger brother and his friends, who are no longer content to come into power naturally. While they work to find a way to neutralize the goddess, Marley discovers that every time she nullifies someone, she takes on some of the goddess’s insanity.

Gage falls for Marley’s sharp wit and intense desire to right wrongs. But once he discovers she’s turning into her enemy, is it too late to back away?
 I highly recommend reading the series in order.

My review of book one:  Under the Moon

Cerridwen's review of book two: Heavy Metal

Unable to regain her Goddess powers, but "gifted" with a different type of ability, Marley is out to make sure no one is given power that isn't already theirs.  When they realize that another goddess must be giving away her power, she begins the hunt to find out who it might be.  She doesn't expect to run into Gage, son of the leader of the newly discovered Numina group, also on the trail of the elusive goddess.  Thrown together by mutual goals they never expect find out they actually like each other.

The third book in the series really brings all of what has happened in the first books to a huge and very climactic resolution.  There was so very much going on all that at times I did find it a little difficult to keep it all straight.  While Marley is trying (unsuccessfully) to hide her growing insanity, things take on a life of their own and the power starts to get out of hand for everyone.  The last half of the book I really couldn't put down.

I loved that Natalie brought back all the main couples from the beginning of the series, it helped to tie things together and make the series seem extremely cohesive, it flows from one book into the next effortlessly.  You know you've run across something great when the series ends spectacularly but you're still sad to see it go.
