Fierce twenty-two-year-old Addy hasn’t had the easiest of circumstances. Then she runs into Adriel, a half-naked young man with major back burns, kickstarting a series of disasters in her life, mainly her younger brother Reed disappearing into thin air with a strange man. She immediately suspects Adriel is the culprit. After all, Reed’s kidnapper had the exact same burn marks on his back.
Adriel, who a few hours ago had been a guardian angel, doesn’t know why he is on Earth with a human heart pulsating in his chest. After he sinned, he was sure he would be cast into Hell. Instead, the wild young woman he stopped for help on the road won’t stop questioning him about her missing brother.
Although Adriel claims innocence, Addy doesn’t believe him until she comes face to face with Lucifer, the lord of Hell, who has imprisoned Reed. Lucifer awakens the demonic blood dormant within Addy and sends her on a mission to corrupt human souls. His desire: to wage war on Heaven with an army of demon-turned humans.
And not following his plan? That’s a sure way to get Reed killed. Against Adriel’s objections, Addy must follow through with a job she never signed up for—preying on human souls.
This is a spoiler-free review.
A small disclaimer… I read this book at a very hard time in my life when my mom wasn’t feeling so good and to top it all our beautiful dog Menta passed away, Reading this book not only made this time pass easier as I was truly immersed in the story.
Wow, wow… Wow. I can’t stop saying wow, hehe.
I truly enjoyed reading this book and I can’t wait to know more and read more.
This is a dual point of view story, between Addy and Adriel. Most of the time I can’t fully connect to these types of stories but here it was well made and thought off, that you can feel the characters and see their desires and understand how they work.
The main character Addy is so strong and so relatable, I instantly got invested in her and I enjoyed seeing how the character growth over time. I love how fearless Addy is especially with helping her lost brother Reed, but she herself is dealing with new issues as new things awaken in her and the things she finds about herself only makes her even stronger and better at understanding what is really good dor her. Addy showed her true self in these pages and I was fully connected to her because of that.
Adriel is such a strong and great character as well, that as a fallen angle needs to deal with so much as well but also poove to Addy that he is not the monster she thinks he is. This story cured my reading slump I was in and helped me with the sadness I felt, weird I know… But it’s the truth.
I loved the characters so much, each and every one of them felt so real and so strong in their beliefs, it made the story flow so smoothly and feel so much stronger as I read deeper into the story. They’re so much more I want to know and understand, I need more books by this author 😀
The writing style is on point, it usually takes me a few chapters until I dive deep into a story but here, from the first chapter I was completely in and hooked.
This story has everything you need, pure exciting adventures, angles, and demons, family and love. I think it’s a must book to read in this fall season and a must in every book lover’s TBR ❤
*** Don’t forget that it’s the last day that you can pre-order the book for a great deal, so grab it while you can.
