***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Lucy was born not created. Now the very existence of humanity is resting on her. Having fallen from the Above on her own will, she seeks out those who would seek to destroy everything that was created. She lands in the Western Province and is taken to the Elder Devil there, Deveraux where she beseeches his help. Through a forbidden pact that will damn her for eternity, Lucy and Deveraux fight their way through the Above and Below to restore everything to what it always was. But can an angel and a devil really trust each other even when bound together by lust and determination?
This is the first book that I have read by Yolanda Olson, but it won’t be the last! I enjoyed this story from start to finish and devoured it in just a few days. This book packs a punch!! It contains all of the needed elements to make it successful and there is so much going on in the story that it leaves you breathless, puzzled and intrigued throughout. The scenes in the book are described in such great detail it is amazing. The descriptions of hell were graphic enough that I had clear images in my head of just what we were slogging through in the underworld section by section. I could literally smell the smells that the author was talking about as I read the book. It was just like being a part of the story.
The story contains angels and devils, good and evil (which isn’t as clear cut as we think) in a wonderful story line with a few great twists and turns along the way! Just when you think you have something figured out you are most likely wrong and there is more to the story! There was some steamy romance (but not too much that it over powers the story) and literally hell to pay to get Dev & Lucy where they want to be! I think that the author needed to work on her character development just a bit more, as there were some questions that I had while reading the book and that is why I didn’t go with a solid 5 star rating, but rather a 4. I would have liked to know more about Lucy and why Dev named her Lucy, as well as how she became “fallen”. There were just a few brief mentions of this throughout the book.
I read a lot and can typically spot plot twists a mile away, so I love when an author is able to still surprise me. There is everything in this book that needs to be in order to make it a fun and worthwhile read: Action, love, adventure, an exciting plot, and just a touch of romance. I would add this to your TBR list and you won’t be sorry, it will make a great summer read!! Overall it is a book worth reading and a book worth sharing!
