Jack Templar faces his greatest challenge yet...

In the sixth and last book of the Jack Templar series, Jack and his friends race to stop Ren Lucre before he launches this Creach army against humankind. But the Lord of the Lesser Creach and the Lord of the Zombies hold the last two Jerusalem Stones Jack needs to have any chance of success. To make matters worse, the Oracle predicts that one of their group will die in the upcoming fight, and Jack discovers betrayal among those he trusts most.

Even so, Jack must find the courage to lead his friends into battle. Either they collect the Stones in time to defeat Ren Lucre or die trying. It’s "Do your duty, come what may" no matter the cost. The fate of the world hangs in the balance.

This is the sixth and final book in this series and was my favorite one! Bits and pieces of Jack's story were revealed throughout the other books and this is where we get the final pieces and understand what his quest has been about.

Jack and his friends have their toughest challenge yet--to obtain the remaining two Jerusalem Stones and then attempt to defeat Ren Lucre in battle. It seems impossible to accomplish and they will need help in order to be successful. I loved how this story unfolded! Jack and his friends have a strong bond and stay loyal to each other, even when they're not sure how that will affect the outcome of their battle.

The series takes place within one year and what an action packed, adventurous year it has been! I would highly recommend reading it from the beginning so you can get to know the characters and their interactions with each other, as well as the complete story. I'm always sad when a series I have loved comes to an end. I enjoy this author's writing style and look forward to reading more of his books in the future!
