SUMMARY
As a special class of earthbound guardian angel called Memitim, Hawkyn is charged with protecting those whose lives are woven into the fabric of the future. His success is legendary, so when he's given a serial killer to watch over, he sees no reason for that to change. But Hawkyn's own future is jeopardized after he breaks the rules and rescues a beautiful woman from the killer's clutches, setting off an explosive, demonic game of cat and mouse that pits brother against brother and that won't end until someone dies.

Aurora Mercer is the half-wytch lone survivor of a psychopath who gets off on the sadistic torture of his victims. A psychopath whose obsessive psyche won't let him move on until he kills her. Now she's marked for death, her fate tied to that of a murderer…and to a sexy angel who makes her blood burn with desire…

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it's an introduction to an author's world. And for fans, it's a bonus book in the author's series.**

5 wytchy and angelic stars for HAWKYN!

When earthbound guardian angel Hawkyn saves the life of half-Wytch (with a Y) Aurora Mercer after she's abducted by the serial killer he's meant to watch over, he inadvertently sets off a battle that will no doubt end in death. Hawkyn is distraught over whether he interfered with his charge's destiny, determined to both keep the killer and the woman safe. For hundreds of years, Hawkyn has wanted nothing more than to become an ascending angel and earn a spot on the council, but when his own path goes off course, he must decide whether to go against his brothers and sisters or protect the woman who's cast a spell over his heart.

HAWKYN is a novella in the Demonica Underworld series, and also a stand-alone addition to the innovative and fun 1001 Dark Nights series featuring sensual and erotic stories by a variety of popular authors inspired by the classic The Arabian Nights tale.

For whatever reason, as someone who doesn't typically care for paranormal reads, I seriously enjoy Ms. Ione's Demonica Underworld series. HAWKYN was an interesting read, the world she's created is weird and wild and fascinating. I love that good isn't always good and evil isn't always evil and that there are hundreds of shades of gray within her world. Hawkyn had a tough job trying to reconcile keeping a seriously demented serial killer safe yet determined to protect one of his would-be victims too. I liked Aurora's determination and burgeoning awareness of her own abilities. This was a terrific book from a series that I adore!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; no condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; loads of otherworldly violence/murder.
