Alexis Ames has a life full of promise…but not all promises can be kept.

When Alexis Ames is attacked by creatures that can’t be real, she decides it’s time she learns who she really is, with or without the help of her mother, who guards their family’s secrets closely. After meeting the inhumanly attractive, multi-talented Tristan Knight, however, Alexis retreats behind her façade of normalcy…until she discovers he’s not exactly normal either. Then their secrets begin to unravel.

Their union brings hope and promise to her family’s secret society, the Angels’ army, and to the future of mankind. But it also incites a dangerous pursuit by the enemy – Satan’s minions and Tristan’s creators. After all, Alexis and Tristan are a match made in Heaven and in Hell.”


Alright, I got this book and honestly it took me a while to get around to reading it. It was on my TBR list for about a month. (which for me is long once I have a book on my Kindle…I was in the middle of another series and just didn’t want to interrupt the story line by reading something else.) By the time I got around to reading it I honestly had no clue what it was about!

When I first started reading I noticed a few similarities to the Twilight Saga and I just KNEW that Tristan was going to be a dang vampire and if he had been…well this book wouldn’t have gotten 4 stars from me. However, the book (while similar to Twilight in some ways) was so much more! The plot line has depths to it that everyone (after reading some reviews by others) clearly didn’t get when reading it. I can’t even believe that I read the same book as some of these people! I mean wow…can you say harsh! 

Anyways, as I was saying, the plot line (fighting our inner and external demons, along with a little romance of course) and characters are well developed and catchy. I was literally hooked within the first few minutes of reading, I just didn’t want to put it down! I love the idea of the battle of Good vs. Evil and breaking it down in such a way with the characters was awesome and fun to read. I found myself crying and laughing along with the characters and hoping that things worked out.

There were a few times that I wanted to shout at Alexis for being so childish and non-understanding…especially when he explicitly said he was going to have to say things he didn’t want to. I mean really…come on chick the man is crazy for you!

I adored how well the author kept the secrets! I had no clue what was going to happen and when I guessed…well let’s just say for once I was wrong! I loved it! Not many books can keep a secret that well hidden while still having you so engrossed int he book that you cannot help but read on! I was frustrated, thrilled, and angry throughout the book for so many different reasons! 

The book ended in a way that left me hanging and dying for the next book! I just HAVE to know! The author’s writing style is easy to read and get sucked into…so only pick this one up if you are ready and willing to spend a good bit of time focused on the book!
