Overview

"If you love the girls in Amanda Hocking's and Suzanne Collins' novels, it's time you discovered bestselling YA series author Kailin Gow!" - Steve Windwalker, #1 Amazon bestselling author and Kindle Nation Magazine founder.

The dark night, veiled in a cool mist, collapsed around me, closing in as I ran. The forest grew dense while the mist danced through the leaves and flailing branches. For a brief moment I lost sight of my prey.

I pressed through the tightly packed shrubs and saw him, running at a speed that was astonishing, but not quite past my own capabilities.

He darted around a huge tree, leaped over a stream with ease and clambered up a boulder with a quick glance back at me. "I don t want to fight you, Lux," he said, his voice clear and well-controlled, completely unaffected by the chase. "Not here. Not ever."

I jumped to grasp his ankle, but he climbed on, out of reach.

"If I must, I ll keep running just to prevent a confrontation with you." Climbing over the boulder, I saw him, running along the edge of the cliff, undisturbed by the sharp drop just inches from his every footfall. The distance between us grew. I had to pound harder, faster, ignoring the possible peril of just one small slip. I had to catch him. Beyond anything else, I had to.

"You can t keep running," I called out as I closed the space that kept us apart. "Eventually you ll get tired and you ll have to stop."

"You're wrong," he shouted back. "You may get tired, but I won't. I never will."

While I concentrated on the chase, my heart held back, longing for another way to resolve our differences. I still loved him.

"It's stronger now," he said. "So much stronger. I barely feel human anymore. I could run on and on, tirelessly, endlessly."

"But you won't," I argued. Just yards behind him, I could smell him. The scent of his skin had changed. Gone was the sweet masculinity that had always appealed to my senses. His odor was now bitter and pungent.

"I'll keep running as long as I have to. You re chasing me to fight and that would force me to fight back. That's something I won't allow, Lux. I won't fight you. I don't want to hurt you. I'd rather die."

    Heaven and Hell picks up where Beautiful Beings left off.  Lux finds herself going through the motions at school, Brax and Asher are both missing from her life.  She now knows what the Beautiful Beings are, and the curse that they live under, and unfortunately finds herself very enamored with Moore, who just so happens to be one.  Moore's feelings for Lux prove to be sincere, and he ends up helping her to track down Brax, and both he and Brax agree to help Asher.  While Shayne is embracing her dark side, Moore is trying desperately to fight his, and Lux is committed to help him overcome his curse, finding her self falling for him harder and harder.  They take a trip to England and manage to find Brax, convincing him to come back, but when Lux receive's a visit from Brax's dead parents, it is soon revealed that Brax also suffers from the same curse that Moore is under.  Asher rises to the occasion and though he still has strong feelings for Lux, they manage to keep those in tow in this installment, and are focused more on fighting the demons and recovering and keeping safe "The Book of Angels," which holds many secrets that do not need to fall into the wrong hands.  They find themselves in an intense battle, after which the truth of who and what Lux really is, is revealed. 




    I enjoyed the story more in this book, as it seemed to have more of a defined purpose, which was to stop Shayne, get the book, and help Moore and Asher get freed from their curse.  There were battles with demons, and they learned more about the Incubus and Succubus demons, as well as the need for an Angel to help defeat them.  Lux was able to control the physical aspect of her relationship with Asher, even though the chemistry was still there, but she still bounced between Moore and Brax.  After an incredible weekend with Moore, as soon as they find Asher, she winds up in his arms kissing him, even though she loves Moore.  This back and forth continues, and that is really my only dislike about the book and the series, though it is a major one.  Lux does find something out about Brax at the end, which may help her in her decision as to which guy she wants, however that remains to be seen.  What she finds out about herself, however, may be to key to saving both of them.  Personally, I like Asher, but Lux likes them all, so we'll have to see where that goes.  I am curious about what happens next, so I think I will be reading the next book in the series when I get a chance.  I would have really enjoyed this book if it weren't for the way Lux bounced from guy to guy, which in my opinion, tarnished her image as a heroine and the one who was to bring light to the dark situations.  We'll have to see what happens in the next book.
