When Trixa learns of a powerful artifact known as the Light of Life, she knows she’s hit the jackpot. Both sides—angel and demon—would give anything for it. But first she has to find it. And as Heaven and Hell get ready for an apocalyptic throwdown, Trixa must decide where her true loyalty lies, and what she’s ready to fight for. Because in her world, if you line up on the wrong side, you pay with more than your life.

What the Critics Say

"Trixa Iktomi, Las Vegas bar owner, information broker and down-to-earth grad of the school of hard knocks, sasses her way into and out of trouble while avenging her brother's death in Thurman's supernatural series launch. Angels and associates of Eden House, an earthly company that employs human demon hunters with psychic talents, face off against demonic fallen angels who eat souls to gain strength. When she gets news of the Light of Life, an impenetrable shield that could protect heaven or hell from attack, Trixa and her Native American bartender, Leo Rain, are determined to locate it before the demons can."

It reads like a rough draft

The book feels more like a rough draft and not a finished novel in the way the author just states plot developments instead of telling us, the reader/listnener, a story. Also, there seems like little to no foundation is established in the story for the major revelations that occur at its end. Personally, if I wasn't already a fan of Rob Thurman based on her other works, this book would only serve to convince me not to spend any more money or credits on her work. Perhaps her 2nd book in this series makes up for this one, but I can't see myself giving it a chance. I did however, enjoy the choice of narrator. For me, Hilary Huber had a good delivery with an enjoyable tonal quality to her voice.

I loved it.

I really liked this series and I listen to a lot of UF. The reader is very good, the plot is fast paced and twisty. I was surprised several times. And unlike most things I listen to, it stuck with me. I thought about it for a couple of days.
