Publisher's Summary

Leda Pierce is working as a paranormal bounty hunter on the Frontier, the dividing line between human civilization and the plains of monsters. Life is simple and the pay modest, but at least she has her family. That is, until a vampire hunt goes wrong and her brother goes missing, captured by the dark angels of hell.
With no magical powers of her own and no way to find him, Leda's only option is to go to New York and join the Legion of Angels, an elite unit of supernatural soldiers with powers gifted to them by the gods themselves. If she can survive long enough to make it up the ranks, she will gain the magic she needs to find her brother.
But Leda soon finds herself on the wrong side of a conspiracy that will shake up the supernatural world - and at the mercy of a fiercely powerful and tempting angel.

Great start to a new series

Ella Summers does a good job of illustrating the dystonia world in which the story takes place. Monsters overrun the earth and then gods stepped in to help. Many of the cities were destroyed and the remaining cities were walled off from the wasteland of monsters. The gods gave them magic and many paranormal creatures. At the top of the hierarchical were angels.

The book starts with illustrating a problem that is happening in the bounty hunter community
Leda Pierce does not have an obvious magic, but she does have a mouth and attitude. She is a little stronger and faster than others but she is all human. She is the older sister (3 sisters and 1 brother) that was brought together by her Callie, her adopted mother. The rule is that they watch out for each other. When her brother is kidnapped, Leda is forced to make a life changing choice. She needs that the skill of an empathy so she must- join the Legion of Angels.

To become an angel requires strenuous life threatening training and drinking the nectar of the gods. The training recruits has all the social norms for any newbie. There is an elite group, who are progenies of the gods, who scorn the others.

As a bounty hunter, Ledia has skills to get the job done, a respect for life and how to be a team player. The manner in, which she does the job is not necessarily in the manner of an angle, but she gets results when others don’t. That presents a conflict with the other recruits.
Service to the country, to eradicate monsters are the reasons for joining the legion. That is the reason Ledia regurgitates, but her real reason is secret, and it presents a conflict with a particular angel – Nero.

Building the conflict and chemistry building between our future lovers begins from the moment Ledia applies. She has a secret and he wants to know it. What put her on his radar we never know. What we do know is he does what to know her secret.
Their relationship follows the prescribed girl meets boy rules. The challenges of which personality will give to the other; respect from life-saving situations; an understanding of their motivations, and bonding from admiration.

The action is nonstop and dialogue is entering.
This is a cliff hanger with a few subplots. Why is she “special”? Why/who want Ledia’s brother? Who is pulling the strings on the vampires? Oh, when is Nero going to jump Ledia’s bones? The only thing that is settled is Nero knows her secret.
