Naasir is the most feral of the powerful group of vampires and angels known as the Seven, his loyalty pledged to the Archangel Raphael. When rumors surface of a plot to murder the former Archangel of Persia, now lost in the Sleep of the Ancients, Naasir is dispatched to find him. For only he possesses the tracking skills required – those more common to predatory animals than to man.
Enlisted to accompany Naasir, Andromeda, a young angelic scholar with dangerous secrets is fascinated by his nature – at once playful and brilliant, sensual and brutal. As they race to find the Sleeping archangel before it’s too late, Naasir will force her to question all she knows…and tempt her to walk into the magnificent, feral darkness of his world. But first they must survive an enemy vicious enough to shatter the greatest taboo of the angelic race and plunge the world into a screaming nightmare…
Not giving away any plot, except that this book was pure action. From page one to the finish and strangely I liked that. It didn’t bother me that there was very little romance (and even that only at 85%) because Naasir and Andromeda made a great team and I somehow could feel their bonding through that. The search for the sleeping Ancient was a tough one but those two pulled it off like pros. I’m always greedy for more Raphael/Elena time, so to get their POVs was a nice bonus. We get to see the Archangel of death again and sadly, no, she AGAIN didn’t bite the dust but, hey, her end is coming. That’s for sure! And you can bet that I’ll be watching her end with popcorn in my mouth and a nice smile on my face.
