Darkest Heart by Juliette Cross
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Oops, I joined this series after it had already started without realizing it. That being said, I feel like I caught up quickly and didn’t miss too much in this dystopian angel/demon action romp.
This story takes place in a world where angels and demons are out in the open and warring with one another. Humans are largely cannon fodder and get caught in the middle of these large scale battles. Anya is a battle angel with a much softer heart than her fellow soldiers. Somewhere along the way, she found herself infected by a small amount evil demon mojo. If she doesn’t find and rescue Uriel, a kidnapped big wig in the angel brigade, she’ll eventually become enslaved to a demon.
Funny thing, to avoid getting enslaved by a demon, she finds herself making a deal with a very shady demon. Dom is a demon who has been essentially shunned by both sides. He’s been living his life with his own moral compass, which just so happens to put him at odds with almost everyone. These two have a sizzling attraction, but there are mountains of baggage holding them away from one another. Watching them get drawn closer and closer what great to watch while they battle their way through the bad guys. As an intro to the world (for me) this was engaging but darker than I typically read.
