This was an easy book to get sucked into. The descriptions pulled me in. The story idea was one I hadn’t read before. I loved the world the author created and the detailed characters. I enjoyed the dynamic between Avery and Cole, and I was surprised when Wyatt quickly became one of my favorite characters. I would looovvee to see a book from his point of view.
If you’re looking for a unique read with interesting dynamics between angels and demons, this is a good read for you.
My rating: 4.5 stars
He’d put on a linen shirt, which he left unbuttoned. The white material accentuated his tan abs. His faded blue jeans hung low on his hips, revealing rope-like muscles that invited the eye to travel downward. His mildly bored expression gave me the notion that his outfit had less to do with impressing anyone in the room and more to do with being comfortable in Hell’s sauna-like atmosphere. I wondered if he’d always been so toned or if death had fine-tuned his body like it had done to mine. I didn’t want to announce I’d been checking him out, so I didn’t ask.
Death isn’t the end for eighteen-year-old Avery Williams, and her final resting place isn’t beyond the Golden Gates. No, the Queen of the Damned has plans for her and, unbeknownst to Avery, fought hard to gain possession of her soul. As Hell’s newest succubus, Avery is expected to siphon life from the living. It only takes a long, meaningful kiss, but for a virgin like Avery, kissing guys she barely knows isn’t something she’s comfortable doing. Avery focuses on the upside of her fate—she’ll be returning home, or so she thinks. When the Queen of the Damned cuts her off from her old life, Avery is determined to find a way back to her family and friends, even if it means facing Hell’s fury if she’s caught.
