Heaven and Hell are at war
The clock is ticking
Homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis’s niece is missing and pregnant with Lucifer’s child, her sister has descended into madness, and the human race has begun a relentless spiral toward self-destruction that Alex is desperate to stop. Now Michael, the Archangel she holds responsible for Earth’s plight, has returned—and he’s demanding her help to track a missing god.
Heaven is losing
Fighting for the very survival of his own realm—and that of humanity—Michael’s only chance to defeat Hell lies in returning Heaven’s long-lost daughter to her throne before it’s too late. But first he’ll have to convince Alex to help him—and to keep her out of Seth’s clutches long enough for her to do so.
There can be no right choices
In a desperate bid to save both their worlds, Alex and Michael must put aside their animosity and find a way to work together in the face of increasingly impossible decisions…and unimaginable sacrifices.
I had no idea this was the 4th in a series when I requested it. However it did such a good job explaining what was going on, I was able to get the context and understand without having read the first 3 books. And without over-explaining or making it so it would be a slow read if you had read the first 3 books.
I loved this book! All the characters were well-developed, as was the world. The way immortality was done is something I haven’t seen before. Instead of having immortality be just a state of being, it was almost like an object. This little bubble they kept in their chests, and if it was pierced then they lose it and truly die.
There were Hell’s Angels, and motorcycles, soulmates and slowly falling in love, Evil being evil, and crawling back from the brink of madness.
I liked Alex, she had so many bad things happen to her, and yet she still tried so hard to do the right thing. She’s strong and smart, and not in the over-the-top perfect way some main characters end up becoming.
Michael (or Mika’el) was my favorite character though. There was just something about him that made me hope he would be able to pull off finding Emmanuelle and save the world. He had just as many bad things happen, though in different ways, as Alex did. And every choice he made was like picking straws to find the least bad one he could.
I liked Bethiel, though his part in the story wasn’t as focused on as some other characters. Aramael was talked about often enough that you get the feeling you know him, even though he never actually appears in the book.
The bad guys were believably bad, and had reasons that worked for being so. And the various governments acted in ways I would have expected them to as well. Even if those ways were crazy or stupid in the eyes of those characters in the know about what was really happening.
I will most definitely be picking up the first 3 books that I missed, and if you haven’t read this series I highly recommend you do so!
