Publisher’s DescriptionThere’s a battle brewing on Earth, and it has been for centuries, between the loyal angels to God and the Fallen who took the side of Lucifer after the Great War in Heaven. Thankfully, Earth is watched over by the Archangels and by the lower level angels who have been ordered to take human form to keep a watchful eye on Mankind for God. Jakiele is one such supernatural being.

But the war that started in Heaven is far from over as the Fallen will do whatever it takes to once again gain dominion over the Earth and determine man’s fate. Zadikiele is the one demon they can count on to follow orders without question and see their evil goals to fruition. Zadikiele has no fear and will use or kill anyone who gets in his way and is ruthless enough to take on any angel foolish enough to stand against him.

Jakiele is forced into the fray when the woman he is forbidden to love becomes accidentally entangled in the Fallen’s malevolent plans. Zadikiele has every intention of using her to his advantage to accomplish the Fallen’s goals and then dispose of her. And so begins Jakiele’s race across time and space to not only save her, but mankind as well even if it means he has to give up his own immortal soul.

This book is an interesting read to say the least. With the prologue being about the fall of Satan and his followers I expected there to be more demon and angel action. But the story read more like a military romance (ie. secret service falls in love with a top scientist) with a few other worldly elements like fallen angels, angels, and vampires thrown in.

Characters like Jakiele and Kataliana are great for the romance. They have that steamy forbidden insta-attraction that actually annoys me but it works in this case. I also find Ana and Caleb to be a charming side romance. My favorite character was Dariah the demon. I almost felt sorry for him in places of the book.

badge3v4There were some weirdly worded sentences and some misplaced words throughout the novel. Some places it was way too verbose. Overall I have to give this novel 3 wings. It just didn’t capture my imagination the way I thought it would.
