The serial at last draws to a close in a spectacular, page-turning conclusion. On the verge of his long awaited release, Jeremy hopes to finally be able to put the nightmare of prison behind him. Enemies from within the prison as well as outside attempt to deny him freedom. Trey seeks escape from the vengeful scheme of Jeremy’s ex-lover, and Shontay, Corey, and Bobby yearn to find their happily-ever-after’s.
Soaring Angel is the last instalment in the Life Without Parole Series and as such we finally get to find out what happens to everyone.
I must say that I really liked the way that Jeff wrapped up all the loose ends in this serial. In this last instalment you not only find out what happens with Trey and Jeremy but you get the answers to all the question raised about the secondary characters through the previous instalments.
Shontay gets out of hospital after being shot saving Jeremy in prison, the first place she goes is to see Trey. Getting to Trey she finds Jeremy’s ex Chord attempting to murder him so that his secret won’t get out. After all is said and done, Sam gets the ball rolling on Jeremy’s release from prison.
After Jeremy is released from prison he tries to settle things with his family and discovers he has effectively been disowned more because he is gay than the fact that he’s been in prison for a murder he didn’t commit.
Corey Levins realises that what he has with Bobby isn’t real and luckily the path away from Bobby is eased by Bobby being moved to another level of the prison. Corey doesn’t let a failed jail-house romance stop him from finding happiness with a man that is singularly suited to him.
Rick Slater makes the biggest mistake of his life when he tries to entice Darren Anducci into killing Jeremy to shut him up about things he thinks Jeremy knows about Rick’s deal he’s got going on within the prison. Within a matter of days Rick finds out what it’s like on the other side of cell bars.
Jeff ties up all loose ends with the all of the secondary characters and then gives you the added bonus of revealing a bit into their future after everything is settled. Trey and Jeremy find a way to have their very own happy ever after as well.
I must say, I’ve never read a serial before but the way that Jeff has written this one I’m definitely going to be reading more in the future. Make sure you pick up your copy of Soaring Angel you won’t regret it!
