What’s worse than losing your job? How about losing your life, your home, and everything familiar? I just wanted to work. What did I get in return?
A long fucking fall with a sudden stop.
Stranded on earth with little hope for survival and an eternity of banishment ahead of me, I did the only thing I knew—I worked the jobs I could. Until I realized I’d been replaced. Then I got mad.
Eleven thousand years of fighting for my destiny had me broken, bitter, and ready to just give up. And then my best friend blew up Fort Worth and screwed the entire universe in the process. Now I have to save his ass from everyone including the Guardians.
I hate Guardians—those intrusive vixens replaced me, took over my job, and left me utterly useless. But this one, Lavinia, she’s almost as old as I am and she is starting to get under my skin. I can’t concentrate when she’s around—everything about her mystifies me and why the hell do I remember her from before? She shouldn’t even exist! And certainly not in my memory.
Where to start with this book? Angels, demons, guardians, the origins of werewolves and vampires, and so much more goodness. Normally I prefer my paranormal a little darker, but that’s not to say this book didn’t have action. It did and it was fantastic! Loved it when Ambrose fought against the demons who were sent to kill him. And what a snarky attitude on him. *sigh* Just how I like my heroes.
This is a story about Ambrose, a fallen angel who simply wanted to complete his assigned jobs. Instead, he was kicked out of heaven for not joining the war. He makes a pact with a demon, Yuruch, and an unlikely friendship forms between the two of them. These two are great together. It shows how it’s possible to love someone even when you don’t agree with their choices.
There is so much that happens in this story that you need to read it to fully appreciate it.
About this author
Jen Winters fell in love with paranormal romance after her daughter was born and she needed a way to escape reality for a few minutes a day. She loved it so much she decided to take her own pen to it. The world of the Guardians was developed through deeply irreligious conversations with her father who likes to misinterpret scripture as often as humanly possible and a good dose of did-I-just-read-that-! when looking into ancient near eastern mythology and scripture.
