Everything Vero has trained for in the Ether has led to this. In the third and final book of Laurice E. Molinari’s Ether series, the young guardian angel Vero is given the quest of locating the Book of Raziel—which was lost when Adam was forced to leave the garden of Eden. And not even Raziel himself knows where the book is now. It soon becomes clear, however, that Lucifer is intent on finding the book for his own means.
When the C.A.N.D.L.E. library in the Ether is missing the information he needs, Vero, his sister, and his best friend, Tack, discover the clues to the book’s whereabouts may be right in front of them on Earth—and that Vero’s father’s new assignment in Sri Lanka may be no coincidence. As their quest begins in earnest, the lines between good and evil begin to blur. Vero will need to use every ounce of his training to take on not only the Devil and his hordes, but also Lilith, who may be lurking closer than anyone thinks.

My thoughts:  The Dragon's Descent is a good book. I wouldn't recommend this for eight-year-olds because it might give them nightmares, but other than that it is thrilling. It captured my interest and didn't let go until I reached the end of the book.  

It is very challenging for the guardian angels to actually become guardian angels, because the angels-in-training have to stay in their earthly families and they don't live to adulthood. But the highlight of guardian angels being guardian angels is that they get to know the future of the person they are guarding. I recommend this for anyone who enjoys a good thrill. 

I am going to look up the first two books in this series: The Ether and Pillars of Fire. 

5 stars.

Thanks for the thoughtufl and kind review! Very curious to hear your thoughts on the first two books... Vero Rising, and Pillars of Fire. (Also, thrilled to hear you liked book three without having read the first two!)
