Policing relations between Heaven, Hell, and Earth is messy and violent, but Elise Kavanagh and James Faulkner excelled at it—until coming across a job so brutal that even they couldn't stand to see one more dead body.

Now they've been pretending to be normal for five years, leaving their horrific history a dark secret. Elise works in an office. James owns a business. None of their friends realize they used to be one of the world's best killing teams.

After years of hiding, something stirs. Bodies are vanishing. Demons scurry in the shadows of the night. A child has been possessed.

Some enemies aren't willing to let the secrets of the past stay dead...
~My Thoughts~

I kind of had high expectations for this book which is why I wasn't totally blown away by it. I enjoyed it and can't wait to get back to the series though and hopefully soon. But there was just something missing. Maybe if I had a better connection to Elise I think that would have helped immensely.
From the beginning this felt like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, just with demons instead. And if you're a big fan of that show then you'll just love this book and no doubt this series! This book is action packed, spine chilling, and even humorous at times. There's even a small dose of romance, which I absolutely found adorable! Anthony is so sweet and completely brave to go after this tough gal Mrs. Reine has created for us.
Overall, this is a perfect tale for the upcoming holiday! It'll give you the creeps and if read at night, it'll definitely get your imagination going!
Beware that this can get graphic with loads of blood shed! Like I said, perfect for the holiday!
Will disturb your being

Sweet Readings Everybody!
