Cage McCormick lives a life devoid of affection, unable to seek comfort from those around him. He’s never understood why people are repulsed by even the slightest touch of his flesh. How can anything that feels so vital to him be so very wrong? Something deep inside him must be cruelly twisted. Desolate and confused, he’s convinced his life will never change and that suicide is his only option.
An angel has observed Cage’s torment from a place in-between and feels compelled to save him and his rare gifts. She knows the truth. Cage is a Confessor, born missing a small portion of his soul. His body pulls the sin and corruption from others, trying to replenish his missing energy.
Only he can expose your darkest secrets. Only he can remove the blackest stains from your soul. Will he embrace his true nature or find another way out?
This is my second book by author Erin McFadden and she is quickly climbing her way to my all time favorites list. I am ready to start the other two by her on my list (moving her straight to the top of my extensive TBR list). This book also has a paranormal plot and centers on “good and evil”, or what is perceived as good and evil…
This book is about Cage and his ability to make people “confess” their sins or corruption and it makes them seem repulsed by his touch. He tries to never touch anyone with his bare skin, but sometimes he forgets that he isn’t wearing his gloves…after accidentally touching someone and sending them to an early death he feels as if he is a curse to the world and that he must end his life.
Enter the “angel” who somehow saves him and heals him and then proceeds to explain what he is. Is this enough to make him change his mind about ending his life? Will he begin to understand his craving for people’s secrets? Will he be able to heal himself enough to want to continue on?
The author has the reader asking themselves all of these questions and more as they try to figure out where the plot is going next. The author takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of emotions…they don’t know which way is up and which way they should go next. This story is more than a story, it’s a lesson and one that I am glad that I read!! I love this story and can’t wait for the next one by this author!
If you haven’t read her yet, make sure that you do! You don’t want to miss out on this amazing author!
