The fact that she and Julian are civil to one another is enough to have her thrown out of the Sanctuary, but she can't shake her not-so-angelic stalker or how he brings her dangerously close to ecstasy.
Her forbidden relationship with Julian provides the perfect fuel for suspicion when a traitor is discovered to be working within the Sanctuary. Lily quickly finds herself hunted by well, everyone.
Her only hope is to discover the real traitor before she loses everything--and she'll need Julian's help. That is, if Julian is really there to help her...and not destroy her.
Yeah, being a Nephilim isn't everything it's cracked up to be.
I have read this book many times and I still love it. Yes I’m not shocked anymore when I found out who is betraying information but the story still thrills me.
What is this story about.
This story is set in the world of the nephilim. The nephilim are the children of (fallen) angels and humans. The nephilim are responsible for fight the fallen angels, minions ( nephilim turned dark because of the fallen persuasion) and dead heads ( humans who’s bodies are possessed by another soul that isn’t willing to move on)
The main character in this story is Lilly, she is one of the view female nephilim and a very strong hunter. She has long auburn eyes, creamy skin and stunning green eyes. The main male character is named Julian. Julian is a fallen angel so you can imagine him being perfect. He stands over Six and a half feet tall while Lilly is only five foot four…. In heels. He has sandy blond hair that comes to his shoulders. He has striking blue eyes and has sizzling features and of course a rock hard body.
Then there is Luke, Luke is lily’s best friend and they’ve know each other for a long time. Besides Luke the is Nathaniel, he is the head of the organization, named the sanctuary, that Lilly works for. Another important character in this book is Michael. Michael is an police officer that stumbles in the nephilim world, only he doesn’t realize it was his world all along.
Other than fighting the minions, dead heads, and fallen, lily is also fighting her attraction for Julian because it’s against the rules. She is supposed to kill Julian, not kiss him. But Julian is impossible to ignore and very fast and strong. Also he saved her live eight times and maybe many more times that Lilly doesn’t know about. On top of all that there’s also a moll in the sanctuary and lily is desperate to find out who it is, especially when she becomes a suspect.
What did I love about this book.
I loved the trill and suspense in this book. I also love the setting of it, I liked mythology. I loved the characters. I loved how strong and passionate lily is and I loved the sexy and strong Julian. I loved that this book shows you that there’s always a choice and that you shouldn’t judge a person on what their race or job is. That there’s always more to a person than what you might think or expect.
I could tell that this is one of the first books that Jennifer has written because her writing style has changed. The way she builds a world, characters and tells a story is still very strong and I love that.
