After crawling her way out of Hell, Six is ready to cast aside her angel wings and all the responsibilities that come with them. But Earth is not as peaceful as she imagined it. Demons, dark angels, and other hell-beasties escaped before her, and they’re not as content as she is to live a quiet life on Earth.

A fellow angel who escaped Hell with her commits a series of soul-murders, destroying human souls so they can’t go to the afterlife. Although Six has conflicting feelings about humans, she goes after the other angel to keep their escape a secret from the one she fears most.

This was a short, fast read. I would have loved a little more detail in several areas, such as Six’s background, the fight with Alden and Luke’s visit. I hope future books in the series go into the happenings a little more, and answer my questions, which include details about the angels and why they are thrown into Hell, and more specifically, what is Six’s story.

I am also looking forward to seeing how Six acclimates to live on earth. Will she actually have to learn to live like a human, but will she take the route of Alden. Who I also have unresolved questions about.

I quick warning, this is not a clean read, there is a rather erotic scene, but it certainly does not detract from the book.

Overall, while I enjoyed the story, I was left with a lot of questions. I think a bit of expansion within the story to provide more details would greatly enhance it. I did find the actual plotline interesting, although I was confused with Cara’s casual acceptance of everything. I found myself shaking my head at the idea that she didn’t once bat an eyelash at anything.

  1. I have this one also. It looks interesting. I was sad to see that it was just a novella. Thanks for your review, I might read it one the weekend between books.
