My Review: ( Spoilers alert be warned.)

In this book we meet Acelynn that made a deal with the devil to save her sisters soul. She has wandered the earth for 80 years looking for Satan’s son so she can kill him. Acelynn is a troubled soul that carries a lot of “scars” and gilt from a rough upbringing and a drunken dad. Acelynn is smart, as learned many languages and tries to enjoy life best she can.
I really liked the basic story here, the first half of the book was really awesome and very well written. You got into the book fast and I liked the character and the world it was set in, you were eased into this world in a very nice way. It is set on a biblical theme with Satan, angles, demons and then spiced up with vamps, unicorns, shifters and such.
Overall I liked this book, but I did have some things I was not so happy with. When she meets the man she falls in love with and they get in bed the first time we get nothing. The author has built up to it and she just stops short and pick up the next day, WTF?!?… When Acelynn was in bed with a random guy earlier in the book it was much more described, also that she had to be on top because she has so “scars” from before. And here with the love of her life we get absolutely nothing. I was sooo not happy about this, I felt cheated in a big, big way.
Also this book is labeled Paranormal Romance in big letter, in a pnr I expect sex. I expect to read about the first time the H/h get in bed with each other and every other time they do too. This is not a PNR to me, I would say more in the Urban Fantasy genera with no sex and also overall the way it is written.
I also was not a big fan of the end here, but that can be fixed in the next book I hope. Other than that it was over all a very good read, solidly written with a good plot. I give it 3,5 stars.
