Read from August 12 to 20, 2012

I thought the book had a good premise. With Sarah the main character at the beginning cutting a bargain with Lord Azrael to get what she wanted for 100 years in exchange for her soul at the end of that time period. After the bargain the story fast forwards 100 years to present day and you meet a new character, Tom, who the reader a brief glimpse of in the beginning of the story. While the story has a small amount of action and some intrigue. I really wanted more background to the characters who exactly is Lord Azrael and some of the other characters you encounter throughout the story. If you have background on the whole angels, demons, and Satan's fall from heaven then you have a bit of an idea of who the characters are supposed to, but I still wanted more. The whole alchemy bit and the Great Work element were also a bit confusing to me. Overall I think the book needed a bit more polishing.
