Once a proud angel of Heaven, Nevar is now a servant of Hell, bound to a new master—the King of Demons. Consumed by darkness and driven to seek revenge, he set in motion a series of events that awakened the Great Destroyer, a force that will bring about the apocalypse. Now, he is the creature's master and the fate of our world rests in the hands of an angel with only darkness in his heart.
Lost in the mortal realm without any recollection of how she came to be there, Lysia is only aware that she has survived a great battle. When she stumbles into a demon bar, she finds more than a chance to discover what happened to her—she finds a dark and deadly angel warrior who stirs fire in her veins and awakens soul-searing passion she cannot deny.
With the mounting threat of the Great Destroyer, the forces of Heaven and Hell against him, and a band of dangerous angels intent on capturing Lysia on his heels, can Nevar protect the beautiful woman who is light to his darkness and find the strength to save the world?

Nevar is a former angel of heaven. A cruel twist of fate has him at the beck and call of his new master, Asmodeus. There is no love lost between these two, which makes for a very tempestuous relationship. His thoughts of revenge and retribution have turned him into a dark being that even he no longer recognizes. On top of that he has been saddled with the added responsibility of being the master to the Great Destroyer.
Lysia is a lost soul in a strange new world where she doesn't understand the language. As luck would have it, she stumbles upon Nevar, who seems to be her only link to this unfamiliar plane. He can not only communicate with her, but he also stirs feeling in her that she has never known before. Their connection is not lost on Nevar, either. However, his current duties leave him little time for anything other than manning the post given to him by Asmodeus. Though he tries, he cannot seem to resist this female. With just a look, she can lift the darkness from his soul and give him thoughts of a future.
However, there are forces greater than a burgeoning love at play here. If the Great Destroyer is awakened fully, both mortal and heavenly realms will be irreparably damaged. When Lysia becomes a pawn in a wicked game between heaven and hell, can Nevar make good on his promise to keep her out of harm's way? Or will darkness consume them both and leave them lost forever?
As a major fan of this series, it was great to get reacquainted with the other couples. I was reminded of how strong the bonds were between them. However, I never felt that all-consuming bond between Nevar and Lysia. I didn't feel there was enough time given to them as a couple. Once the battle between the angels began, I felt that too much of the story's direction was focused on that and the main couple was overshadowed. This was not my favorite book in this series, which saddens me. I didn't get that 'I can't wait to see what happens next' feeling at the end of this one.
However, on a positive note, the brief appearance of the Devil was worth the price of admission. I wish Ms. Heaton would give the Devil his due. Sure, he's made appearances in the other books, but he needs his own book. Ms. Heaton's interpretation of the Devil is one of my very favorite things.
