Synopsis (Cover links to Goodreads page)
Cade committed himself to saving lives before he learned the full consequences of his life-altering decision. It wasn’t until he was tending his sick wife that he learned the enormity of what he’d done and he was unable to save her from the monster he had become. Consumed with guilt and praying for absolution, he threw himself into killing every Fallen he could find to save the humans he’d sworn to protect. But then Emma, deliciously mortal and completely forbidden, swept into his world, stirring an overpowering desire. Now he’s not only fighting soulless creatures, but also his inner cravings, trying to maintain his distance and continue on his path to forgiveness. He can’t afford to lose control again and sacrifice another love

Where did I get the book: from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review
My Rating: 4 bookworms
When reading the blurb you don’t really get a feel for what the book is going to be like. When I started reading it I was at first a bit disappointed. I thought I was dubed into reading another typical vampire book. Boy was I wrong. The author created such a different idea, a different view point to the myth that I felt like I was reading about a creature I have never come across before.
I was captivated by Cade’s inner turmoil and his refusal to be happy in his own life. He fights to save the innocent and helpless yet refuses to see that he deserves to be happy too. His conflict with Gabriel makes for a funny read (which I didn’t expect) and Ms Austin’s description of the Sept and it’s inner workings was complex yet completely understandable.
Emma is adorable. From being fired to getting sloshed at the bar on the way home she shows a type of character that is very rare in fiction these days. She gripes, and moans, yet she is determined to stand on her own two feet. And I had a crazy laugh at her descriptions and view points throughout the story.
This was a great start to what promises to be an amazing series.
