Publisher's Summary

Warning: This book contains graphic violence, sex, and explicit language. It also contains specific references to Heaven, Hell, angels, demons, and God Himself (and not necessarily what is considered true and accepted). Some of the content may be considered offensive to some listeners.
This is an introductory novella to the Keepers of Hell Series and does contain a cliffhanger.
Ash had promised himself into servitude with a demon when he was only a child. He spent his life killing for the demon, and he was good at his job. It was the only way to ensure the safety of his sister. When a brush with death brings Dr. Elizabeth Rone into his life, things change. The demon wants her dead. And for Ash, that's a deal-breaker.
He never killed an innocent soul. Not only was she innocent, but she made him feel things he had thought he was incapable of.
With a demon hell-bent on her demise, will Ash be her savior, or will she be the one saving him?

There was definitely a lot of potential

Savior is the first novella in a series called Keepers of Hell by Danielle James. Ash is a slave to a demon and he has been from when he was an elementary school. When his parents were murdered by this demon and the demon turned on Ash’ sister, Ash stepped forward to protect her. The demon then offered Ash a job. He gave Ash the opportunity to work for him and in return the demon would not murdered Ash’ sister. Not knowing what he was signing up for, Ash accepts. Now, Ash is beholden to this demon and must do what he is told. Enter Elisabeth, a trauma surgeon. Never expecting to have any personal life, Ash is taken aback by his attraction for his doctor. Now, he must figure out how to balance his bargain with the demon with his unquenchable attraction to Elisabeth.

Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy this novella for many reasons. There was definitely a lot of potential, but I think the story needed further development. The broad strokes of the plot are interesting and even have the potential to be unique. The relationship between Ash, demons, and God is a twist on a common topic. But, I would've liked more details, which could've perhaps been introduced with more characters. However, I was really looking for a stronger plot in both the romance and urban fantasy aspect of the novel. I especially didn’t like the romance because to me it felt forced. It seemed abrupt and before the reader gets to know the characters they are lusting after one another. There was a lot of physical attraction with little mental connection between the two characters. The urban fantasy aspect was interesting, but there wasn’t really much detail given to the reader and so when Ash enters the demon world, it didn’t feel vivid. Ultimately, I felt that the world building was not as strong as it could’ve been. Further, the end of the novella is a twist and a cliffhanger, which can be frustrating. Overall, I think the short length was a detriment to the story.  With a longer novel, the world building and character development could have been stronger.

The narration by Miles Taylor was okay. However, I didn’t think his voicing of the different characters was dynamic enough, which could’ve helped characterize them a little more. The production quality was good. I would recommend this novella to someone who likes quick fixes for heavy anticipation and romance in an urban fantasy world.
