"This is an exciting, atmospheric story. . . . A dark fantasy with tortured characters and dramatic events, Echoes of Angels is a very promising start to a new series. 4½ stars." -Romantic Times
With her life in shambles and nowhere to turn, Julienne Blackthorne has no choice but to accept her grandmother's offer to return to her ancestral home-a home Julienne's mother fled in fear more than twenty years ago. What she finds there is a world so macabre it haunts her senses and fills her with dread. And the darkly compelling Morgan Saint-Evanston, whose mysterious pull haunts her in more sensual ways.
Morgan was once the most feared mercenary in a sinister realm and was destined to become the leader of his people-a duty he abandoned when his tormented soul drove him to seek exile in the mortal world. Tortured by his betrayal and the knowledge that those who dwell on the dark side will one day have their vengeance, he turns to the beautiful Julienne for one last moment of solace. Because the veils separating the worlds are about to open, and Morgan knows he must take the fight to the enemy before the forces of darkness unleash their unholy hell on mankind.
As Julienne surrenders to the undeniable passion that flares between them and Morgan prepares to confront a fate he cannot ignore, both will be plunged into a realm where human souls are open barter and even the power of love may not be enough to save them.

Echoes of Angels, Keepers of Eternity Book 1, Devyn Quinn Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre: Romance, sci-fi and fantasy. I thought this sounded intriguing, something a bit different and having read the sample on amazon I was keen to read the book. Sadly though for me it just didn’t really make it. I wouldn’t class it as a romance, there’s some sex but that's it, no real connection between Morgan and Julienne it. Julienne seemed to gain her confidence very quickly for someone who’d returned home from such a dreadful situation, and I really thought that she was rude to Morgan. Yes he’s pretty obnoxious, but it would have been easier to be polite to her grandmother and just avoid him. The scene where she was frankly just a voyeur seemed to have been added for titillation and didn't add to the story. In fact the whole story for me didn’t really go anywhere. Morgan’s non human status was dangled in front of the reader continuously, but we never get to know exactly what he is, and what's really going on. He was frankly a horrible man, and I couldn’t believe Julienne’s actions when she knew how he was, saw first hand what he was like to Ashleigh....I was so disappointed in his character, he sounded so enigmatic and promising to begin. I didn’t feel any real heat or connection between him and Julienne, and really missed that. I just felt from a promising start it seemed to go no-where which was a shame because that start was so intriguing, held so much promise. Its that potential that has me rating this a two and a half and not a two. I did read right through to see if somewhere I would get sucked in to the story, but it was hard work. I was really hoping these potential plot lines would develop but ...nothing that really resonated with me, nothing seemed to actually happen and nothing that made sense, made me feel I must read book two. There’s a kind of cliff-hanger at the end, something happens but I can’t believe its going to be left as it seems. Still, looking at reviews it perfect as it is for many readers so its another example of that “not all books suit all readers” and what didn’t work for me could be the hook that you need to enjoy this. Stars: two and a half, lots of potential but didn’t reach it for me. . ARC supplied by Netgalley and publisher
Summary: Echoes of Angels is the first book in the Keepers of Eternity Series. The hero, Morgan Saint-Evanston, is truly bad-to-the-bone. This sexy immortal spends his days at Blackthorne Manor hiding from a crime he committed centuries ago. He's a tortured soul who's about to face the music, or in his case, the evil sorcerer Xavier. There's only one thing that can stop the ensuing face-off: a witch named Julienne. Only problem is: No one's trained her on how to use her powers! Review: (This novel is for 18+readers; it includes adult themes) If you walk on the dark side of paranormal romances, this novel is a MUST READ! Think Showalter's Lords of the Underworld are bad? How `bout Ward's BDB baddies? Well, Morgan is equally dark and powerful! But in a style all...his...own. This novel draws you in with its dark magick and sensual appeal. And Devyn Quinn's writing style is superb. The author likes to keep readers guessing, which I feel adds to the enjoyment of the story. Coming Soon: Book 2: Descent of Demons Book 3: Genesis Awry Book 4: Rise of the Beast (Dec. 2013) Reviewer: Witchy Woman
