Overview

A fallen angel with a mission and a medical examiner who’s lost her faith are fighting for their souls in a glittering, near-future Manhattan…

Blind faith is for fools. That’s what Dr. Morgan Sterling believes. And she’s going to prove it by curing the zombie plague ravaging her city’s slums. She’s certain it’s not a sign of the End of Days, but a nasty disease—until an angel appears in her morgue in a flash of glory.

Luniel is not just a fallen angel. He’s a powerful warrior sworn to fight evil in hopes of a chance at redemption. He’s after the demon princes who are stealing the seven vials of holy wrath which, when perverted, will unleash eternal hell on earth.

To stop the plague, Luniel needs Morgan’s help, and her faith. But Morgan believes science is their salvation. If the zombie plague is a demonic curse—and if Luniel is true—he’ll have to prove it. Even if he loses his heart to true love or his soul to Hell…

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A stubborn heroine nearly ruins the launch of this violent dark fantasy romance series. In an anarchical, near-future Babylon (formerly Manhattan), demonic forces have spilled two of the seven vials of God’s holy wrath, creating a plague of zombies and turning the sea to blood. Dr. Morgan Sterling, a pathologist and religious skeptic, believes the zombies must have an origin that can be explained by science, and even a visitation from Luniel, one of the Tainted fallen angels, fails to convince her otherwise. He joins her search for Patient Zero, hoping to find the Prince of Poison while his fellow Tainted seek out the Prince of Blood, and they battle demons and their mutual attraction. While Morgan’s refusal to accept a new paradigm and trust Luniel grows wearisome, Luniel’s internal struggle is more engaging. Hayes (Blood Cursed) encourages empathy with the Tainted, but her depiction of the Archangel Michael as a sadist may raise eyebrows, as will angels who use Christ’s name as an epithet. Agent: Marlene Stringer, the Stringer Literary Agency. (Oct.)
