Some things in life are not black and white. Will Vassago falls into one of those gray areas. Anjali really doesn't know what side the fallen angels is on -- good or evil. He could be one of the good guys or he could be one of the bad guys Anjali has dedicating her life to vanquishing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If being one of the fallen is wrong though, I don't want Will to be right. There is something sexy about a fallen Angel like Will because he is suppose to be saintly, but instead he turned away from God. You know that he must have had a good side to him to have been an Angel, yet he has a bit of a naughty streak, which caused his fall. With this fallen the good definitely outweighs the bad, but that does not stop him from being a man in the ways that count, including arrogance, stubbornness, and drop dead gorgeousness. The author did such a great job creating my ideal hero that I found myself thinking about him for days.
Anjali is one strong female. The fact that she is the only demon hunter in a foundation full of vampire hunters speaks highly of her. Demons may knock her down but she refuses to stay down for long. Plus she has a secret weapon that no one else possesses. It is one of the reasons Will finds her so intriguing. She proves her strength by showing she has what it takes to tame Will heart, body, and immortal soul. Anjali is the type of woman we average mortals envy. Her OCD is also a quirk that I happen to love about her. It makes her less than perfect which is something I enjoy seeing in a heroine.
I can say that this story had an unfair advantage from the beginning because I am a sucker for an angel vs. demon story. Crista McHugh's plot contained everything I love about the epic battle between good and evil. Part of this is the gray area. Lucifer and the other fallen angels may not necessarily be entirely evil as we expect them to be. Then again, they could be the ones out to destroy the world. This conundrum is what keeps readers entertained and makes them come back again and again.
This was the first story I have read by Crista McHugh but with work this skillful it will not be my last.
