This is a book where the standard fantasy characters appear – angels, demons, vampires, werewolves. but we also have some Archangels and multiple gods – and it would appear a multiple Demon at the top of their hierarchy too. So some differences in hierarchy and behaviours, especially as the main female protagonist is a Guardian Angel and therefore not expected to fight.
But there the differences stop.
The female has hidden powers that she finds when she does fight. She is someone that even the Vampire Queen and Alpha werewolf want to protect as well as one of the major Angels.
It is quite a nice read – damned by faint praise? It did not really make need to see what was on the next page and in the next chapter. And in fcat there were several points in book 1 where I thought it should have stopped – and then we would have really wanted to read book 2 to find out what happened next. I think an editor would have been useful to sharpen it up and make Ava more intense as a character. And Liam was still rather shallow as a character even by the time we got to the end of the book.
