Blurb: Their love could save the soul of a fallen angel or damn an archangel to an eternity in Hell.
The realm of angels was created as a paradise where angels could watch over the earth as mankind took his first steps. For the archangel Michael, it is the only home he has ever known and he could never envisage another life. Michael’s life changes the day his path crosses that of the favored son of the morning. From the moment he sees him, Michael wants Lucifer for his own. When the two angels come together the passion surprises them both.
Their love is forged in Heaven, but is doomed the moment Lucifer falls from grace to become the leader of an army of demons.
Separated by war, the former lovers know the time will come when they must face each other in battle.
Their confrontation will set in motion events that neither could have foreseen. For Lucifer it is the chance to persuade Michael to stand at his side, as his partner as leader of the demons. For Michael, it is a mission to save his lover’s soul, while risking his own.
Torn between his love for Lucifer and his duties as an angel, Michael walks a fine line, where one wrong step could result in his own fall from Heaven, and an eternity in Hell.
Publisher’s Note: Although this book contains characters from the Heavenly Sins series, this can be read as a standalone story.
Review: An amazing journey into the lives of two powerful angels that spans centuries. Archangel Michael has been secretly enamoured of the morning star, Lucifer. When first they meet it seems as if Michael has lost his chance forever but Lucifer seeks him out, and so a hot and passionate relationship starts between the two.
It was a book about taking chances, heartbreak, tragedy, love and doing what you think is right for the one you love. A lot happens throughout this wonderfully written story. Though I’m not going to give anything away needless to say I was impressed by how each man was portrayed. Although I must admit I was a little put off by how Michael seemed so shy around Lucifer at first but it was to be expected.
There were a few questions left unanswered so maybe a sequel or follow up book? Who knows. Aside from that I loved the entire story. It states that this book can be read as a stand-alone yet is in fact connected to the series Heavenly Sins. I did not read that series so some characters that came into play were written as though I should know them already in certain situations. I wish I had read the series.
The whole story was a gripping epic tale that took me by the most delightful surprises. I never knew what decisions each person was going to make when it came to the difficult ones, which thrilled me. There is not always happy times but they eventually get there. I loved it.
