Auralee went because she can hear the thoughts of others. Zane could speak to other creatures and Mira not only helped keep Kassia from using her gift, she could also compel others to do what she wanted or to forget things she wanted forgotten. Kassia worries that the only way to keep her friends safe from the demons is for her to die. She doesn't want to die but she is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her friends safe.
After all they are the only family she has I won't tell what happens in the end : you have to read the book to find out for yourself! You won't be sorry!

May 27, Maria rated it it was amazing Shelves: high-school , fantasy , demons , angels , magic , young-adult , friendship. I really, really loved this book. I felt like the group of characters fit so neatly together — both their powers and the way they related to each other. I liked all of the powers and the way they were used.
It was emotional and because the plot was so driven by these emotions it was hard to put the book down. Kassia is a strong girl, whose main strength lies in her ability to love. Mira is much stronger than she gives herself credit for, and seeing her grief broke my heart.
Daxon is a real sweetie. Zane, surprisingly, might be one of my favourite characters — he has one of the smallest presences, but his sense of purpose and determination shines through in it. It reminded me a bit of Vampire Academy, in the way that friendship — mainly the friendship between Kassia and Mira — carried this book and in the way their school, with its class schedules and stuff like that, was described.
Seeing as these are two of the things I love the most about VA, I really liked seeing those elements. Jan 27, Tyra rated it it was amazing Shelves: 3rd-quarter-books. This is book is absolutely one of my favorites.
It cleverly combines a teens problems and gives them a fantasy twist, and many people will relate to Kassia, a 16 year old girl has some pretty peculiar problems. Not only is she trying to find out who she is and where she fits in with the rest of the world. She has supernatural abilities, and she isn't alone. Kassia goes to a school for gifted teens where there is everything from Psychics to Dreamers. And then there is Kassia who is a Mind Blower. Her powers can sometimes get out of hand and she hurts people without meaning to. But what she doesn't realize is that her powers extend beyond what she thought possible.
In "The Ultimate Sacrifice" she learns how to control her abilities and save her friends from the dangers that lurk in dark corners and wait silently to strike. This book is one of my favorites. It is a little more for young adults-adults because it has a lot of context that would be lost if a younger reader would happen to find this book. Recently I just read the second one in the series and I think there is another one. I can't wait for it to come out, or she decides to finish the series. Oh, and if you decide to read this book, you will come to love cliff hangers.
It sounds odd, but it is so true. The suspense she builds in her story adds to it and draws you in immediately. May 22, Tracy Smith rated it really liked it.

Unfortunately that might be enough and whe is left with only one way to make things safe aagain for her friends. Will she put herself totally at risk to save them? Will her demise be enough to stop the evil that threatens their survival? This keeps you going, page by page, because you can't put it down til you see what happens next.
