Heaven and Hell are on the brink of war as Lucifer builds his Nephilim army and waits for his new agenda to become a reality — that of having a Nephilimchild of his own bloodline to lead his forces to cataclysmic victory.
With rumors of the pending war rampant on Earth, Alex fights to save humanity from its own panic – leaving little time for her fledgling
relationship with Seth, the man with heavenly origins who has captured her heart. But when Nephilim children begin to disappear, along with Alex’s own vulnerable niece, the inevitable war between Heaven and Hell becomes as personal as sin.
Heaven has its own plans to fight the coming apocalypse, but first it needs Seth back. Asked to betray the man she loves, Alex must turn for help to the soulmate she thought she’d given up — the Archangel Aramael, who may be her last chance to save her family and humanity from the ashes of Lucifer’s Armageddon.
This book is the darkest and deadliest of the series so far. The story is moving beyond Alex and her involvement with everything that’s happened so far, and is setting up for the big showdown. Like the last book, this is an intense Heaven versus Hell story, without religion. I find this incredibly intriguing, and very satisfying, in a slightly horrorific sort of way.
While Alex is still very much near the spotlight of the book, I thought that more focus was put onto Seth. I didn’t really care for his character, either in the beginning, or when things really started to heat up. He makes several choices that I can’t comprehend, and reveals just how non-human he really is.
There are several things that happen in the later parts of the book that make it really hard to review without revealing spoilers. Without being able to discuss them, I feel like I can’t really explain why I loved this book as much as the last one. The situations that happen are absolutely mind boggling, and heartbreaking. There are some great set ups for the next book, which is sure to be a doozy.
Overall, this is a great book. This series definitely needs to be read in order to understand what is happening, and this book doesn’t really stand on its own as it is too in the middle of the series plotline, but it is an incredible addition to the series, and is sure to make your eyes pop. I hope the next book comes soon, because I don’t want to wait to find out what happens next.
