As the alkins head back to Crossroads, Claudia leads her normal life; but not for long. Having a special soul, Claudia attracts danger, and she soon finds out who Gamma asked to watch over her. The Twelve, known as Divine Elders on Earth, are very much involved when they find out that Aliah, one of the God's first angels, escaped from the Abyss when the gates were opened by Aden. Needing Claudia's soul to escape the only place Aliah can reside-a place between Heaven and Earth-he sends his demons in search of all Claudia Emersons on Earth. Taking her soul will enable him to be released from Between and cross over to Crossroads, which would give him immense power. As more secrets are revealed Claudia learns about the venators-nephilim, demon hunters. Now two opposing forces must work together in order to save Claudia and humanity from the most dangerous angel ever created. But along the way, trust becomes a big issue. Will love be enough to keep Claudia and Michael together? Who will make the ultimate sacrifice? Who will betray them all?
I had to start this one immediately after reading Crossroads and it didn't disappoint. Claudia's life isn't in immediate danger so she is to live life like normal. She won't see her guardians as often. At least until she is once again in trouble which seems to happen to her a lot. There is a new threat that will force two groups to work together who don't play well with others. The whole group is back and determined to keep Claudia safe as her power grows, but will it be enough?
Claudia is coming into her own and I love that. The author did a good job surprising me on several occasions through this story. We met some new characters, some I loved, and some I despised. Michael is still more determined than ever to keep Claudia safe. Davin is back and better than ever, along with the rest of the crew. I absolutely hated/loved the ending of this book.
A 5/5 and I cannot wait to continue the series!
