Publisher's Summary

For Edward, immortality has been very lonely lately. After several decades in hiding, he's surfaced to find scarcely any of his kind left. Most importantly, his beloved Beatrix would appear to have succumbed to the sands of time. Curious to learn what might have befallen her, he stalks the last two immortals, Arron and his daughter Jennifer, in hopes of learning her fate.
Things are about to get a lot less lonely for dear old Edward. He's stumbled into a battleground between light and darkness. While this particular war has been going on since before the biblical flood, Edward will have to sort out the puzzle quickly, or join his friends in the afterlife.
On that subject, Arron's daughter may have a few ideas of her own. It would seem Jennifer Faust is convinced that the gates of Hell have a revolving door, not a padlock.

Holds your attention, suspenseful little romance

This is the second book in this series it goes into more detail many have died and only a few are left. Edward is reported dead but he is very much alive, he has promised to watch over Arron and keep him safe. He finds he is not only watching over Arron but his daughter they have gotten an invitation go out to a birthday party none want to go but some are taken and given no choice. Jennifer decides to make a stop before she goes to be with her dad this is full of mystery. Leaving the reader in awww as to the outcome. Edward finds his self in a race against time trying to keep those safe at the same time not really wanting to go through with this. Jennifer is very much a part of this story she has powers she got through her mother who fought the angel and past on some of her powers to her unborn child. Now the angel wants them back, she sets a trap but all is not as it seems. Jennifer has a few tricks up her sleeve but things do not go as planned.

Mr. Baker’s narration is very good, he does give more pause than he did in the first book. Some of his characters voices are great giving wonderful emotions but others are a little flat. There are no background noises, no volume changes, if any breaks where taken I could not tell. There are no repeating of words the audio is pretty even toned. He really the characters to life for me and made me believe in them. Mr. Baker’s normal voice is very pleasant to listen, his female voices are better than the first book but still need a little work to make them sound a little more female. I really like how he did the thoughts so you could tell they are thoughts and not spoken. I did think he put a lot into the action and suspense and this part really pulled me in. I really enjoyed the audio and look forward to listening to more of this narrators work.

I really liked how this plays out, the mystery, suspense, how the game is played. My heart does go out to some of the characters and the games they had to play. The author goes into detail from the start of time and how these angels and fallen ones started out and why they need to die. Anne just breaks my heart and it looks like she will be playing a very big part in book 3. So innocent, so forgiving and demands nothing in return. I wasn’t sure how this would play out but the author did a wonderful job pulling me in and even shocking me a little. It is a ride that really pulls the reader in making them believe in a story that isn’t real but seem so. It has a nice pace, with a good plot, I loved the tension, and the surprises. The adventure and suspense was wonderful keeping you on the edge leaving you guessing what could happen next. I can hardly wait for the next and last book in this series to come out. It will be interesting to see how the author plays this out, who will live and who will die.

An incredible book in an amazing series

I loved the new characters that were introduced in this book. It would be possible to read this as a stand alone but the first book is amazing so you would be best placed to start there. This is equally good. I’m not going to give any spoilers so I’m going to be deliberately vague about the characters. We start with an escape from danger that’s tense and action filled leading into a good old face off between the good guys and the bad guys - yes deliberately vague!! The characters are interteresting with a good deal of depth. You like the good guys although are they the bad guys? And you either dislike or hate the bad guys but then some of them have a bit more depth than that also. I really dislike the queen - which you should or at least I think you should. It also sort of disturbed me that the games she plays with people are so warped given who or maybe what she is. Which is also really fascinating in terms of why she is like that or how or why. Like I said really involved characters, a great story, plenty of things going on to keep you hooked!

I loved the ending. I like the closure we get in the book and the possibility for more and once again the good guys who are bad guys the bad guys who are the good guys. I like the challenges the book throws at me in terms of that understanding.

Great narration that portrays the characters nicely and gives a sense of pace to the book.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review
