Katie didn’t send her boyfriend to Hell, but she’s going there to bust him out!

Katie thinks she’s going crazy when a baby angel and death’s personal assistant appear on her doorstep. Both claim she’s destined for something great. If she can survive, that is. She’s drawn into a world filled with immortals like Rhyn, an outcast who claims her as his mate in a show of defiance to his brothers. Katie rescues Rhyn from Hell, and he discovers fast just how special his little human is. With Death counting his days on one hand, Rhyn must learn to love, before his own time is up and Katie becomes the first human casualty in the brewing war between immortals. Will the love between a gifted young woman and an immortal outcast save the world–or destroy it?

I’m not sure where to even begin. This story had me so confused. It started right in the action with very little explanation given for the who the people were or how the world was set up with humans, immortals and Ancients. As the story progressed, it started to make a bit more sense, but I still have a lot of questions about world and creature history, and what purpose the Council of Seven serve, and what is the deal with Toby?

One thing I did really enjoy was the snarkiness of Katie. She’s been thrown into this crazy situation, and yet she manages to stay strong and relatively independent, wanting to feel in control. She has a bit of a snarky sarcastic attitude which makes for some good scenes and dialogue. Her ability to survive deadly situations while not completely losing her cool is very admirable, and fits her character quite believably.

The relationship between Katie and Rhyn is something I am not quite sold on. They had a very hate-hate beginning with a lot of mistrust and fear, and yet that seemed to change without much explanation or reason. The tension between them was hot and exciting, and yet the progression of their relationship had a few holes.

The ending is something I also need to comment on. It’s a non-ending, with the story just stopping. Not the type of ending I enjoy. There is no clear cliffhanger or plot completion, just an obvious continuation into the next book. Which I do not feel compel to read.
