I am in love with this series! Each book builds upon the predecessor, so if you haven’t read Michael’s Passion or Ramatel’s Vow you really should. Although the romance in each book follows a bit of a formula the background action and the brewing battle between our group of angels and risen demon(s) against the spawns of Hell is as intriguing as ever.
This book features Asael, the Angel of Metalworking. However, since his rise from the pit he’s taken on the mantle as the Angel of Punishment; his chosen outlet is via a secret gig as a dom at an exclusive BDSM club. Outside the club, though, Asael definitely has a softer side, demonstrated when Isda, a healing angel we met in book two, flashes into Gabriel’s compound after demons seek her out. What they want from her is a mystery, but it may have something to do with Isda’s research into the capabilities of demon tears. The interactions between good-girl Isda and tatted & pierced bad-boy Asael were delicious. Isda knows she shouldn’t, but the pull toward Asael is too strong to ignore (yay for us!).
I loved the inclusion of a mortal this time around. Jahi’s therapist gets drawn into the fray and her reaction to learning the truth was wonderfully believable… not to mention comical. The battle continues to heat up, with our angels still largely in the dark as to what the demons are planning. But it’s got to be something major. The way Joel Crofoot interweaves all his various characters is impressive and creates a thrilling tapestry. Can’t wait for the next book!
