Publisher's Summary

What does it mean to be the executioner? Is it the struggle between good and evil and the fulfillment of a gypsy legend? For Robin, it's simply another day in the park in downtown L.A. It's killing the undead as she attempts to juggle life and love the same as any other ordinary woman would. That is until she meets Gordon, a crazed demon with a conscience. Now she must battle an ancient evil far more powerful then she's ever faced before or risk losing the world to Lilith, the mother of all vampires. Will she save mankind? Or, will we all follow the ashes of destruction as we burn in hell?

action-packed, emotional tenseness

This one is a quick and short read with demonic and vampire elements in it. It was fast-paced.

Set in LA, Robin, the lead character is introduced as one of the “executioners” who slays the vampires; Robins role is to fight the evils released upon the earth. The story also introduces Beth, Robin’s best friend who can foresee the future and knows what Robin is, yet she stays with her and helps her in the fight of good vs evil. While doing her job as an Executioner, Robin meets Gordon who is a demon with a conscience and who is in love with Robin at first sight. As Gordon sets aside his demonic ways for Robin, she now has to choose between evil and good leading to an encounter with Lilith, the queen/god of vampires. Robin has been slaying vampires, demons and children of Lilith, all of whom are the prime reasons for chaos in this post-apocalyptic world.

The characters were well developed. Lilith was quite creepy and scary, and while Robin was not as much of a badass as one would think, she was realistic - she was a woman trying to live a normal life while also being an executioner of vampires. While she may come off as whiny to some, she is a strong character.

The writing is very smooth and Kindra Sowder the story and characters together. The undisturbed flow in the language kept me hooked waiting for the action to happen. Even after being a little dark, it is not at all depressing. Sowder has done a great job in developing the characters given the short length of the book and not wasting time in introducing children of Lilith but instead focusing on Lilith herself.

Narration by Sophie Amoss was just too good, usually when there is a female character in the book, the narration gets high-pitched at times but this one was very nice to listen to. The voice-overs for Robin and Lilith were perfect with no problems in production.

Anyone who loves urban fantasy, vampire-kind-paranormal, dark stuff will surely love this one. The action-packed, emotional tenseness of the book is excellent.
