    "This is an urban fantasy, and it's available in audio form, which is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately, this is not the first in the series, it is the third. I hate starting a series in the middle."

    "I've been reading this series from the beginning and every time I am just taken away to another world. The author is so good about creating the characters and you get so engrossed in their world. I love listening to these in audio book form because I can clean or do other tasks while being entranced in the story. This novel is the perfect mix of a modern character juxtaposed into a dark fantasy land. I loved it."

    "I got this audiobook to entertain me on a long commute. Some of the action in the latter half in the novel was a little hard to follow, but the final ending was pretty satisfying. I only hear the series gets better from here, so I'm excited to read them all!"

    "This is my second time reading this book and I have to wonder why I failed to continue with the series in 2016... I absolutely loved this read from start to finish... Perhaps my reading the prequel novellas helped me to fully embrace and understand this world that Nalini Singh has created allowing me to be immersed deeper into this read the second time through... A world filled with angels and archangels that are both beautiful and horrific in their power, vampires that can enthrall with simply a look, and hunters that are strong, intelligent, and mystical; how can this world not captivate readers?... Raphael and Elena are dynamic in their interactions balancing one another beautifully adding to the intensity of their connection and chemistry... The storyline, although gruesome and horrific, is intriguing and mystifying at the same time with an intensity that lasts throughout the book... looking forward to diving more into this world and seeing how the story continues to develop and unfold:)"
