The Creator invented the game, and the stakes are nothing less than the fate of the quick and the dead: seven souls, seven crossroads. Reluctant savior Jim Heron has compromised himself, his body and his soul, and yet he’s on the verge of losing everything...
...Including Sissy, the innocent he freed from Hell. Jim’s determined to protect her—but this makes her a weakness the demon Devina can exploit. With Jim torn between the game and the woman he’s sworn to defend, evil’s more than ready to play dirty.
Humanity’s savior is prepared to do anything to win—even embark on a suicide mission into the shadows of Purgatory. True love is Jim’s only hope for survival—and victory. But can a man with no heart and no soul be saved by something he doesn’t believe in?
Now THIS is paranormal romance! Action, drama, suspense, wit and more intriguing supernatural beings than we could hope for and becomes one of the best paranormal romances ever. This is an amazing addition to this wonderful series, one with plenty of well-rounded secondary characters to carry on what begins here. Jim is at once a rough, anti-hero alpha and achingly caring and sexy. He's very complex and he couldn't be better complimented by Sissy's sweet, yet not-so-biddable nature. She's weak in the beginning, yes, but morphs into a powerful, kick butt type the longer she interacts with our hero. She's smart, witty and possesses a timeless grace that others around her can only dream of possessing. I hate that Devina is gone,I think she would have been a great match for Jim. This is a very fresh, very consuming addition to the world of paranormal romance. Very much worth as many rereads as the book itself can handle.
Overall, it's a wonderful read! And it wasn't bogged down with sex--it had just the right amount. I loved the characters and this book makes me look forward to the next one, so I'll see how it goes from here! I would definitely recommend this book to Sherrilyn Kenyon fans or any other paranormal romance fans! I really love the concept of of Angels and Demons.
