Can a love that transcends death survive a war between angels, vampires, and lycans?

Adrian Mitchell is an angel of immense power and insatiable desire. Leading an elite Special Ops unit of the Seraphim, his task is to punish the Fallen—angels who have become vampires—and command a restless pack of indentured lycans.

But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals—losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly two hundred years, he has found her—Shadoe, her soul once more inhabiting a new body with no memory of him. Only this time he won’t let her go.

With no memory of her past as Shadoe, Lindsay Gibson only knows she can't help being fiercely attracted to the smoldering, seductive male who crosses her path. Swept into a dangerous world of tumultuous passion and preternatural conflict, Lindsay is soon caught in the middle between her angel lover, her vampire father, and a full-blown lycan revolt. There's more at stake than her love and her life—this time she could lose her very soul...

There are certain elements in this blurb which make me feel; been there done that but at the other hand, it's such a delicious mix of elements I often ejoy. We get the all powerful angel, the fallen baddies, a passionate heroine, the impossible situation and a plot that promises firework.

Now when S.J. Day came with The Marked Novels I was hooked on Eve, Cain and Abel. The action was thrilling, the love triangle scintillating and the characters intriguing. With that knowledge this author delivered once before it piques my curiosity for this series. I hope S.J. Day works her magic again in this series because Eve's story was cut short so unexpectedly :(

Does this blurb get your blood pumping or do you go "meh"?

  1. Hmm, sounds like there'll be a lot going on. I like the cover! :)

  2. It does sound good but yes the biggest part of me goes meh

  3. Angels and demons are hit and miss for me. I'll probably wait for the buzz on this one.

  4. Not really calling to me yet.

  5. Ohhhhhhhhhhhh this one sounds so promising. I can't wait. And yes I loved the Marked books too. So sad she stopped that abruptly.

  6. That blurb, combined with SJ Day got my heart beating a beat faster than is good for me, but what really did it was the meantion of 'smoldering, seductive male...'
    as long as she doens't break his smolder I'm good to go on this one!!!

  7. Oh yeah! I'm dying to read this!!

  8. If there are angels or vampires count me in! Adrian sounds like the tortured hero I love to read about..this one's going on my list!

  9. @Janna - I like PNR the moest when a lot is going on ;) I think the cover and title convey a lot too!

    @Blodeuedd - I hope it will knock it out of the park for me because I know S.Day did it for me before but based on this blurb I don't get that 'need now' vibe ;(

    @Fiction Vixen - I'll see what the book budget can take the month of release *smiles*

    Aurian - Is anything else calling you at the moment?

    @Susi Sunshine - I know, I had such a sad when I heard S.Day was going to cut that series short :(

    @Natascha -ROFLMAO girl you said it; Do NOT break the smolder!!

    @VFG - I so hope you get an ARC, I will so read your review LOL

    @Lori - Angels and Vampires will always pique my interest but I have so many series involving them on the shelves and this blurb just made me go; Don't I have this in one way or another already on the shelves *taps lip in thought*
