Summary via Goodreads: “Katie didn’t send her boyfriend to Hell, but she’s going there to bust him out!
Katie thinks she’s going crazy when a baby angel and death’s personal assistant appear on her doorstep. Both claim she’s destined for something great. If she can survive, that is. She’s drawn into a world filled with immortals like Rhyn, an outcast who claims her as his mate in a show of defiance to his brothers. Katie rescues Rhyn from Hell, and he discovers fast just how special his little human is. With Death counting his days on one hand, Rhyn must learn to love, before his own time is up and Katie becomes the first human casualty in the brewing war between immortals. Will the love between a gifted young woman and an immortal outcast save the world– or destroy it?”
*Also i just noticed this now, the summary is a bit misleading her “boyfriend” that is in Hell is not her boyfriend yet she has still to meet him so yeah…there you go***
My Review: So first formal thoughts and all that jazz: I liked it, i thought that it was a very interesting read with original ideas, and its a book that won’t leave you bored and waiting for something to happen. The characters are interesting and fun to read. The romance is budding but there…slightly. This was hard for me to rate because as much as i liked it there were quite a few things that i wanted more from or things to change. i’ll explain later on. (got a 4 out of 5)
Okay so now for more in depth reviewin’ time. As i mentioned before i though that the plot was very original and interesting to read. Katie is a normal girl trying to live a normal life when suddenly there is a kid claiming to be her son….So when i first saw this in a review i sort of freaked out and was about to back out reading this but wait! Don’t leave yet! if you are like me and well i am strange and i don’t really like the oh i have kids and an ex-husband kind of story, well calm down the kid is explained. Anyways this starts off a whole line of problems. I’ve read in other reviews when looking at this book also that people were saying how Rhyn was cra-cra to the max but again calm down, i think i would be a bit cra-cra too if i spent the last 1000 years in Hell. So these two meet in a strange way. So since i am sort of talking about them anyways lets move on to characters.
Katie: Okay so we don’t find out her age until about more than half way through the book and by the time i found out she was 18 – yeah 18 years old – i had honestly thought she was AT LEAST 21 years old. It wasn’t the drinking that bothered me and that is why i thought she was older than she was, no it was her character as a person. She was very mature, living on her own with furniture, and etc, etc, she works as an assistant manager at a fast-food place but her sister (older? i’m pretty certain on that) and her soon to be husband get down on her for having the normal job of a person this age. sorry that was one of things that bothered me. Katie is remarkable, i think if i was in her situation i would have cracked after a child started telling people that i was their mother….
but the thing is which i suppose this should have gone in plot…whatever is that things weren’t that well explained i guess is a good way to put it, when things start to change for Katie it happens suddenly and we don’t get like an in depth explanation and i read a lot of paranormal so i mean i wasn’t that lost but if this is your first experience with paranormal i might suggest trying out other stuff first then coming back to this. I am still not even entirely sure i know what Rhyn’s brothers are, i know what he is… they just say immortals or ancients…. but they drink blood? i thought that was just a Rhyn thing because he is half demon….opps…. well i think you know that already…
okay i am going to move on from Katie and go to Rhyn: He is like i said before stuck in Hell and people think that he is automatically evil. Well Rhyn is an asshole but he is protective, possessive, and overbearing at times. Well i could see when the reader gets to his POV shifts we get to see a totally new side of him that i like. Though even the book says this he is a man of few words what he does say is important and to the point. He will piss you off, he will make you wish you could punch him in the face, but he will also make you want to grab the front of his shirt and kiss him senseless…;)
Gabe is the other bigger character (there are others but it is late and i am tired so this is going to be a quick review) i really liked Gabe i think there is a spin off series for him that once i am finished with this trilogy i will be checking his book out.
So the ending… well it was unexpected to be honest. Not just for the book but for my entire reading experience i don’t think i have ever run into something like this before…it made me wonder but i am not going to give away anything about what it is. I don’t think anyone needs to worry about cliffhangers here because the next one is out, and i think the last one is out as well but yeah its a bit cliffhanger-y. but not to bad.
