The Unbreakable Curse by Alexia Purdy

The Unbreakable Curse (Accursed Archangels #1)Book Description:
Accursed Archangels is a young adult urban fantasy series which will appeal to readers of paranormal romance, vampires, reverse harems, angels, demons, and supernatural lore. 

Thalia Brennan’s destiny is one she doesn’t understand. As a cursed immortal, she was banished from entering heaven years ago. When paradise is out of reach, one must bargain away their fate. 

Recruited by a corrupt archangel named Ereziel, Thalia must fight her way back into heaven and find a way through the gates of purgatory. Tasked with killing souls so vile, their darkness must be extinguished and collected as currency back into heaven. Thalia gains an unfortunate reputation as a blood-thirsty, self-destructing mercenary. 

When one of vile souls tells her she’ll never be able to buy her way back into purgatory to reach heaven for she is not from either kingdom, she doesn’t believe him, even when he gifts her a locket he claims belongs to her. Killing him only brings the wrath of all the orders of demons and archangels in the city. Barely escaping their clutches alive, she must hustle to discover what the locket does and to confirm if a legendary realm outside of heaven, hell, and earth truly exists. 

My Thoughts:
I'm gonna start this review off with I ADORE the cover on this one!  Is it not gorgeous? Anyway, the story within is just as good.   Thalia is trying to earn her way into heaven by killing the bad guys for Ereziel.  Ereziel is the archangel who found her when she was not permitted into Heaven with her family and taught her how to kill.  I really liked all the players in this book.
One kill tells her something that changes the way she has viewed everything for years, in fact for her entire time since she was cast back down to Earth.  She doesn't come from Earth, but rather a place she has never heard of.  She must save her friend's life when he stupidly puts it in danger.  Then an unanticipated ally helps them both.  I liked how Thalia is determined to keep her distance but is drawn to each of the men in her life through different ways.
It was a 4/5 for me.  The cliffhanger ending is killing me though!  I need to :) 

Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
