Summary

This FBI agent has come to expect almost anything - just not this…

When Agent Mercedes Ramirez finds an abused young boy on her porch, covered in blood and clutching a teddy bear, she has no idea that this is just the beginning. He tells her a chilling tale: an angel killed his parents and then brought him here so Mercedes could keep him safe.

His parents weren’t just murdered. It was a slaughter - a rage kill like no one on the Crimes Against Children team had seen before. But they’re going to see it again. An avenging angel is meting out savage justice, and she’s far from through.

One by one, more children arrive at Mercedes’s door with the same horror story. Each one a traumatized survivor of an abusive home. Each one chafing at Mercedes’s own scars from the past. And each one taking its toll on her life and career.

Now, as the investigation draws her deeper into the dark, Mercedes is beginning to fear that if this case doesn’t destroy her, her memories might.

fantastic!

This book not only gives the stark realisation of the horrors in the world and what FBI agents have to go through, but also how children can be so elastic and bounce back from hell on earth to a life of their choice thanks to the bravery of a few. This book is brutal, honest and truthful yet showing beauty at every corner. truly and easily one of the best books I have listened to In a long time.
I highly recommend the trilogy to anyone.

Loved it but....

Loved it. Great end to a wonderful trilogy. My only drawbacks were: 1- We have become used to 2 narrators per book. It would have been wonderful to continue the trend. 2- For those non-spanish speaking persons like myself, it would have been nice to take us into consideration. For me, the interjections of Spanish in this book was annoying and frustrating. I wonder why Spanish wasn't used in the first 2 books?

Great story, disappointing narration

Overall, I thought the story was great. I've loved the characters since The Butterfly Garden and love how strong and resilient Mercedes is in this book. With that being said, the narration was pretty disappointing. I though Siri Scott did much better in Roses of May, but maybe that's because she didn't preform the entire book. I thought she was too "over the top" with some of the things and she made the characters in this book sound like they were missing brains in their heads. I think it would have been a more enjoyable listening experience if someone else narrated the book.

What happened to this trilogy?

Butterfly garden was just great. 2nd book was very slow but kinda kept your attention but a far cry from the 1rst with little attention payed to the serial killer. The 3rd was like a soap opera. Very boring and completely different method of story telling from the first. The butterfly garden was focused on the victims and killers family with probably 1/3 being the FBI. The 2nd got away from that almost completely and the 3rd is just too much like a soap opera almost completely following around an FBI agent up until the very very end with a few blurbs about the killers past along the way. It's like a different author.

Worst book in the series

I really enjoyed previous books in the series however it seems that with each book the stories get weaker and weaker. This was my least favorite of all , Both from a narration as well as the story. The very worst part of it for the last four chapters which just seemed meaningless and went on and on. If she writes another one I’m not sure I will buy it

Third Book Was Worth the Wait

I discovered the Butterfly Garden by accident and fell in the love with the book. I this series and author are now on my watch list. The third book was just as good as the first - I have enjoyed learning more about the characters and watching them evolve and grow from our first encounter with them in the first book. I know this is labeled a Trilogy but I am hoping it becomes a longer series.

Can't wait for the next one!

I really enjoyed this one. I liked the emphasis of overcoming your childhood vs. perpetuating the cycle. I would have liked to know a bit more about the children, but maybe that will show up in the next book.
