Life as the Preliator is harder than Ellie ever imagined.
Balancing real life with the responsibility of being Heaven's warrior is a challenge for Ellie. Her relationship with Will has become all business, though they both long for each other. And now that the secret of who she really is has come out, so have Hell's strongest reapers. Grown bold and more vicious, the demonic threaten her in the light of day and stalk her in the night.
She's been warned.
Cadan, a demonic reaper, comes to her with information about Bastian's new plan to destroy Ellie's soul and use an ancient relic to wake all the souls of the damned and unleash them upon humanity. As she fights to stay ahead of Bastian's schemes, the revelations about those closest to her awaken a dark power within Ellie that threatens to destroy everything—including herself.
She'll be betrayed.
Treachery comes even from those whom she loves, and Ellie is broken by the deaths of those who stood beside her in this Heavenly war. Still, she must find a way to save the world, herself, and her love for Will. If she fails, there will be Hell to pay.

Maybe when I read the first book in this series (Angelfire) I wasn't in the right mood? Because I don't remember loving it. I liked it, but I don't remember freaking out over it. Was I on paranormal overload?
Well, WHO CARES, doesn't matter now, because when I read this sequel, it was EXACTLY what I was in the mood for and I was FREAKING OUT.
I think it's that I go for forbidden romances. OH, THE TORTURE! Will loves Ellie and has forever. Like, literally, FOREVER. Well, 500 years. And she loves him but they cannot be together and aghhhh the tension my heart I cannot handle it all.
I completely enjoyed it. Okay, let's be critical for a moment: I totally skipped ahead during some of the fight scenes. Yeah, bad reader. I just like to get to the kissing parts, what can I say? But, look, if you haven't read a paranormal series in a while and you are in the mood for a torturous romance (as I was), this will hit the spot!
