World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎
Character development: ☺️🥸😎😘
The heroine: Aamaya – a fallen warrior angel. When she fell and was at her weakest she was possessed by one of the Devil’s pet demons. She has been having blackouts and waking up to dead bodies.
The Hero(es): Malyk – He is a dark Fae and is working for the Hunters, a group of the hidden (Vampires, Fallen, Shifters and the like) that are trying to help the humans as well as keep humans from finding out about the hidden. He was asked by Axel, the fallen angel who created the hunters, to find Axel’s former partner Aamaya who recently fell.
The story: Malyk finds and watches Aamaya and meets her at a time when the demon has taken over. The demon claims that Malyk is her mate. Mal and Aamaya work together to keep the demon at bay and try to find a way to get the demon out of her.
There are other forces at work, from the Devil to the Alliance for Humanity which is run by a guy named Kellan Tolk whom the Hunters have been after for a while. Tolk is a shifter and is trying to rule the world. The Alliance is responsible for doing all sorts of experiments on the fallen and other hidden as well as getting all sorts of supernatural attacks on human filmed and posted online. He is working with the devil as well. I didn’t really understand the reasons behind everything Tolk and the alliance was doing, but they certainly make the story interesting.
I have read this whole series and I really liked the character of Malyk. I liked the romance between him and Aamaya. Mal, like all Fae uses glamour to make himself appear more human. I liked the fact that Aamaya wanted to always see him without the glamour, but he was used to having it on and rarely showed the real person behind it though he showed it to her.
The book started out a bit slow but really got interesting before the halfway point. There were parts of this book, especially during fight scenes when I was so engrossed in what was happening, nothing could have pulled me away.
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
