Synopsis: A new adult romance from Entangled’s Embrace imprint…
There are some debts you can’t repay…
Josh Walker is loyal, reckless, and every girl’s dream. But he only has eyes for December Howard, the girl he has yearned for since his high school hockey days. Together they have survived grief, the military, distance, and time as they’ve fought for stolen weekends between his post at Ft. Rucker and her schooling at Vanderbilt. Now that Josh is a medevac pilot and Ember is headed toward graduation, they’re moving on—and in—together.
Ember never wanted the Army life, but loving Josh means accepting whatever the army dictates—even when that means saying goodbye as Josh heads to Afghanistan, a country that nearly killed him once before and that took her father. But filling their last days together with love, passion, and plans for their future doesn’t temper Ember’s fear, and if there’s one thing she’s learned from her father’s death, it’s that there are some obstacles even love can’t conquer.
Flight school is over.
This is war.

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Review: Hallowed Ground is a beautiful, romantic and perfect end to the Flight & Glory series.

I loved this book from start to finish. Ember and Josh were first introduced in book one and it was a beautiful story, as well. You don’t have to read the other books in the series, because Hallowed Ground does give you enough of the back story though, so you don’t go into the book completely lost. However, this is such a great series and each book is intertwined, I would highly recommend reading all of them.

Ember and Josh have been through a lot and Ember is not thrilled about being a part of the military life anymore, but she loves Josh and accepts him for him and that life goes along with him. When Josh gets his orders, Ember hides her fears that he won’t return and Josh encourages Ember to follow her dreams, because he fears not returning either. The time before he leaves had me blubbering. Their relationship is threatened in more ways than one and there were times I was just sure they weren’t going to make it.
There are so many emotional ups and downs. Make sure you have your tissues handy. You’re going to need them.
Rebecca Yarros wrote a fantastic ending to one of my favorite series. I highly recommend reading the entire series, but this one is by far my favorite.
