Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.
Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.
When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?
Love this one almost as much as the first one. This time however, there are some parts that can get a litte boring but it is still a great book. Some of the drama feels a little over the top as well, but its easy to look past.
Emma is just as amazing here as in the first book. She develops so much as a character and I really wanted to find a portal into the book to help her from time to time just because I didn’t want her to be sad.
We get to know the other nephilim a lot more in this book and all of them are such little gems. You cannot but help love them all, even though you want to give some of them a rough shake because they are slightly douchy.
And I must say, I absolutely adore Emma’s dad. Am I the only one?
Do I recommend this book?
