For two thousand years, Lilith wrought vengeance upon the evil and the damned, gathering souls for her father’s armies Below and proving her fealty to her Underworld liege. Bound by a bargain with the devil and forbidden to feel pleasure, she draws upon her dark powers and serpentine grace to lead men into temptation. That is, until she faces her greatest temptation—Heaven’s own Sir Hugh Castleford…
Once a knight and now a Guardian, Hugh spent centuries battling demons—and the cursed, blood-drinking nosferatu. His purpose has always been to thwart the demon Lilith, even as he battles his treacherous hunger for her. But when a deadly alliance unleashes a threat to both humans and Guardians in modern-day San Francisco, angel and demon must fight together against unholy evil—and against a desire that has been too long denied…
Who will be the first to succumb?
I have to say that this book was unlike any I've read before.
The beginning of the book was set in the 1200's. The last of the book was set in 2007.
I really enjoyed the fact that both Lilith and Hugh were immortal - both of them strong, powerful and fierce. One for the greater good and the other - well, not so much. LOL
Even though Lilith is a demon, I couldn't help liking her. She was stuck in a no win situation and trying to make the best of it.
Hugh was starting to get on my nerves a little cause he was just too good for words - but then he did something that I was not expecting and I was shocked. :) I like it when things happen that aren't expected - keeps me on my toes.
This book was sad. I mean parts were really sad. But the end was worth it and I'm really glad I read it. :)
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and hope to find the rest in the series soon. :)
