An incredible adventure with amazing visuals that smashed all of my preconceived religious notions!

I am so glad the blurb didn't mention vampires. If it had, I would not have read it, and that would have been a shame. This is a great blend of Catholicism, faith and doubt, and steamy hot sex. I loved the strengths and flaws of each character, and the way the vampires worked into the story was fascinating. I'll definitely be buying book #2.

I really enjoyed reading this story. Reno & Jaye are one of my favorite writing duos and once again they delivered a well-written and very interesting story. The religious theme may not work for everyone (in fact I was a bit hesitant myself) but within a few pages I was hooked. I don't know if there's a sequel planned but I certainly hope so.

This is an intriguing narrative, distinct enough from the stories I have read that featured vampires, angels, demons, and the Catholic Church hierarchy and traditions.

Not For The Faint Of Heart---That sums up my work with Jaye Valentine. I've always spent a good deal of time with the darker side of my imagination. I was never afraid of the dark. In fact, some of my fondest memories are of Saturday afternoons with my dad watching Creature Double Feature with a big bowl of popcorn. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. Werewolves, angels, demons and vamp ...more
