What do you do when you're a witch, the last of your line, and you fall in love, only to face the possibility of losing him to a demon determined to destroy you and everything you care about? If you're Sybylla St. Michael, you pretend to have been in it for the fun and tell him to get lost. Now all you have to do is figure out how to get out of the mess you're in alive, kill said demon and find Charlie so she can tell him that she didn't have an abortion.
Every time Asher looks at the big vampire who has become his "brother" he has to chuckle at the thought of anyone calling the massive Charles Dalton Marlow, "Charlie". Only his friend and savior Sybylla would be courageous enough to do so, but it's the fact that Marlow seems to like it that really makes him smile. Now the Demon, Scar has captured Sybylla and Marlow is nothing if not determined to get her back—one way or another.
Vampires, demons, Archangels, witches; what a mix to throw into a pot. Add in some selfless love, misunderstandings, hard-headedness and various other emotions as well as mind-blowing sex and it's a recipe for an outstanding read. I found the book fast-paced, the characters realistic and well rounded, and the encore performance of both Asher and the intemperate Temperance refreshing.
