Publisher's Summary

We stand there, screaming into each other's faces.
How I hate him.
How I've loved him.
How I want him destroyed
After a year of preparation, 18-year-old Raven Smith has planned out every detail of her summer vacation in Europe. Yet, while still enroute to Italy, Raven finds a letter in her carry-on suitcase that tells her not to go to Europe, that an "evil agent of Hell" is looking for her and he will find her if she disregards the letter's message.
Deciding that it was a product of insanity, Raven chooses to disregard the letter's message.
In her cross-Europe trip, Raven only wants to feed her love of art history and spend time with her older sister. She's unprepared for Andras and his strange fascination with her, not to mention the all-consuming attraction she has for him. She's definitely unprepared for Nicholas and his brothers, Stephen, Albert, and Tobias, diverting all of her plans and sweeping her off to a Swedish Castle.
But the letter was right, the agent of Hell has found her, and Raven has become a game-piece in a very dangerous game.

Action packed, exciting story

A thrilling, action packed story that draws you in and holds you captive from the beginning to the very end. The author did an excellent job of building the readers connection to the characters.You can not help but become invested in Raven's survival, she is naive, kind and willing to fight for what she wants, there are both good and evil love interests in her life and you are often torn as to who you want her to be with! The three male protagonists are all strong, but very different, characters. Each is appealing in their own way and they all have somewhat of an air of sadness about them that pushes you to overlook their shortcomings. The plot is intricate and there is no way you can guess or predict where the story will lead, as the author pulls along through the various twists and turns of this intriguing good vs evil tale. The narrators voice fits the characters perfectly, as she brings the individuals and story to life with her narration. It is an exciting, captivating story, that holds your attention and leaves you wanting the next instalment. I received this audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Narration captures the lively cast of characters

This is a well written, intriguing book. I love the way the story glides slowly towards the para normal and then bursts into it head first. At this turning point, the narrator moves from doing a very good job portraying three young women's contrasting personalities to an outstanding job transforming a complex cast of characters into unforgettable demons, angels, friends and foes. Along with the writers ability to create memorable characters in this action packed story, the narrator succeeds in bringing them to life. Gail Shalan's various foreign accents and her well defined development of each character, as they transform and grow in complexity, enrich this story. The successful narration of this novel creates a vibrancy that allowed me to see this story in my mind's eye as if it were a movie....many of the characters vivid personalities remain in my imagination days later. This audio book is a lot of fun and I highly recommend it, especially for teens.
