In a world where evil has broken free, she is the chosen prey.

After an accident left her near death, Sera Littlejohn is struggling to piece together her life. But when a violet-eyed stranger reveals a supernatural battle veiled in the shadows, Sera is tempted to the edge of madness by a dangerous desire.

Ferris Archer takes Sera Littlejohn under his wing now that she is talyan, possessed by a repentant demon with hellish powers. Archer and his league of warriors have long risked their demon-shattered souls to stop darker spirits from wreaking havoc, but they’ve never fought beside a female talya before. And never in all his centuries has Archer found a woman who captivates him like Sera. With the balance shifting between good and evil, passion and possession, Sera and Archer must defy the darkness and dare to embrace a love that will mark them forever.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ann Aguirre | 1/25/2014

    " Had everything I look for in a paranormal and the world-building is fabulous. Epic clash between angels and demons, using the souls of mankind as their battleground. It's edgy and hot, plus the writing is lovely. Add in delightful characters and a strong sense of place, and you get a wonderful book. "

    " I enjoyed the author's take on demon possession. I haven't read anything quite like it. I just found it strange that Sera had to be one of the first females who is demon possessed in known history. I wish the story had a reason for it. "
