He's no angel...
Gregori's last mission is to save Earth from the demons threatening to take control. He doesn't care if he survives as long as he averts the impending apocalypse-until he meets Adelita, a human refugee, whose spirit and determination give him a renewed reason to fight. And live. He's falling for her, despite the fact he's told her nothing but lies and there can't possibly be a future for them.
Adelita can hardly believe the archangel Gregori, sent to save mankind, has lost his faith and his edge. After he saves her from a demon attack, she vows to help him recover both by any means necessary. But can she keep her own faith when she learns the truth about who and what Gregori really is?

This book was a mixed bag for me. It is heavier on the action than the romance and the world building while good is awkward in places. The timing is off here and there. But if you like the action more than the romance, you are likely to enjoy this a bit. I just perfer the romance to the action. I liked the characters very much. I was given this book for my honest review. So there you have it!
The apocalypse has arrived—and it's demons and shades oozing through a rift between dimensions. Angeli Gregori, a soldier from an advanced alien culture was assigned to head off the invasion. He decides to stay and protect Terra when the rest of his Shipmates bail. Adelita, the former law student heroine, is determined to live life to the fullest in whatever time she has left. When she and Gregori rescue each other, two steps ahead of the demon horde, they set out to save the planet, regardless of their different ideas about why or how. The beginning of the story (the first chapter) took effort to get through since Gregori's connection to the scene and motive for defying every aspect of his life Code (defying orders to return to the Ship and let Terra be overrun) wasn't clear. From there, the story took off and I'm glad I stayed with it. The premise of this sci-fi held my interest, going beyond just the adventure and romance with questions about the altruistic nature of Ship's (the sentient computer who guides Gregori's people) along with some funny references to Hal, the computer gone berserk in 2001: A Space Odyssey. I found Adelita the stronger character and hope we hear more about her in future novels.
