Overview

Uriel has awoken into a nightmare, unable to remember who or what she is. She and eight other women are captives of human traffickers, to be prettied-up and sold to the highest bidder. Besides the guards, there's a woman, a demon, who is supposed to make each of them gorgeous, and provide a sexually charged atmosphere at the auction.

They've got five days to escape. Five days for Uriel to save these women--and five days for her to save the demon she's beginning to think is just as much of a captive as they are.

Because saving them all is the only way she can atone for...something- atone, and win forgiveness for a past she can't remember.

This story broke my heart and soul. The horrors and indignities Uriel and the others suffer will haunt you.

I had a very hard time getting started in this book and later in reading it. But let me explain: First, this is not a “fun” book, it’s a dark, disturbing book – disturbing because I know that the subject it’s built on is real. That being said, it is Debra Dunbar so it is excellent, otherwise. Second, I had trouble starting because of my opinions of “Uri’ from previous books. Though she was almost a myth because she never really appeared, she was not a favorite of mine. And finally, once I got started the “bad guys” were a real problem. Had I been able to get to them, the book would have had a really different ending because they deserved to die early but then the book would have ended too soon. All of that being said, I kept at it and I’ve got to say that there are only a few authors whose book I would have worked so hard to read and Debra Dunbar is one. That’s a good thing because finally things (in the story) turned and it got better. Not the writing – the writing was typical, excellent, 5+ star Debra Dunbar. And if you can read it without the preconceived opinions, it is excellent from the start. And where else but in her Demon series do you have an Angel and a demon and the rest of the world thinking nothing of it? Yep, nowhere. There is a reason I kept reading because (I think) I’ve read every book, of every series, this author has written and they are all beyond 5 stars... including (maybe especially) this one. Do youself a favor: If you haven’t read the earlier books, get ‘em and read ‘em – they build “fill” for an extra bit of detail. However, unlike some of her other books, I think maybe you can read this one on its own merits and not miss anything. Much. But then I’m not qualified to say that really since I’ve read the previous books, am I? Nope. The only “problem” I have is that somehow I have to find the time to go back and re-read what I thought I knew about the demon because she is (somewhat) different from what I remember. I think I can handle reading, or re-reading me some Debra Dunbar!
