Penemuel (Pen) fell from grace over a millennium ago, yet there are still times she questions her decision to follow her twin brother, Azael, to Hell. Now that the archangel Michael has returned, threatening Lucifer’s vie for the throne, she begins questioning everything she has always believed.
As Hell prepares for war - spreading a demonic virus and pilfering innocent souls to build an army - the lines separating the worlds blur. Fates erase and the future is left unwritten. Azael is determined that he and his sister will continue to serve as demons together, but for the first time in her life, Pen is not ruled by destiny. She has the freedom of choice.
With choice comes sacrifice, and Pen must decide which side she’s willing to risk everything fighting for: the light, or the dark.
The book is trying to saw us that there is no absolute good or bad (see the yi and the yan theory). The characters learn that lesson too. In the book Heaven is not so heavenly as is it represented it and a demon gets her kindness and all the good feelings back. In the book some bonds break and some form. I can't understand how can someone turn against his/her own blood.
It turned out that the book wasn't what I was expecting after I had read the first couple of chapters. I thought that Pen had fully accepted what she was and doing but later she started to question her nature and the choices she had made.
I was right when I thought that Azael was bad news but I hope that he will see what's wrong and what's right and try to fix things. I am hook with this book and I am waiting (im)patiently for the next one to be released.
The apocalypse is coming
