|A celestial competition has been set up to determine the future of the world. Seven souls – if they go the way of good, we all survive and thrive, if they turn to evil, the world ends. From this opening (in the prologue!) we meet several people in various stages of conflict in their lives, and as their lives converge, Ward sketches out the combatants in the first heavenly show-down.
A fun read, done in Ward’s signature gritty, sexy style. Nice touch that it’s set in the same fictional New York town as her Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and there are a few overlapping characters for those in the know. I’m looking forward to the series. For 18 and up.
