** 3.5 stars **

This is my first time reading this author's work, and I had hard time rating it. There were parts that I loved and parts I was not sure what to think about. World-building wise this book is excellent. It's very detailed, and at times I found myself slightly dazed since there were so many little tidbits to keep track of. But at the same time I sometimes felt as if I was thrown into the situations that I somehow should have already known, I felt like I was missing small pieces here

This was a difficult book to review. I had mixed opinions about the book.

Story Line
Plot wise the book was interesting, detailed and yet seemed to missing on some information. It left me very lost at places.

Writing Style
Detailed & descriptive this book is a well written book. The author is very skilled in writing and though this is the 1st book that I'm reading Jeanne Marcella's work I liked and enjoyed what she's written.

There were many times when I just wanted to l

This is a rich and cleverly developed story with strong characterisation and scenic description. As a tale, it launches without preamble and the reader is drip-fed background and context as the plot unfolds. This is the critical area of weakness in what otherwise would be a very good read. The problem is that the characters and their history are the rationale for the story and explain the personalities of the central characters. Without this background knowledge, the reader is left floundering t ...more

I throughly enjoyed this exquisite masterpiece! MC's Gus and Cal are devine, chemistry is abundant. The world building is exceptional, I literally couldn't stop reading. (And OMG when will book 2 be out?) This lady can write, you guys seriously need to pick this up and read in one sitting!
Set in 1900, in America, this book had me at Angelic/Demon ICHQ! I was amazed by the authors vision and the wonderful blend of fantasy and realism. She really blew my world wide open. I'm looki

This is a complicated book, an awkward book, with barely any human beings in it. Granted, this being a fantasy novel, the main characters are not human. But it still makes for an odd read. The novel is set in San Francisco, in 1900. On one hand, we have Agustín Chávez de la Cruz, aristocratic Demon Lord of California, half angel and half… well, demon—that’s more or less all the details we get. Towards the end of the book we learn that he isn’t half-half as a manner of speaking; when he reveals h ...more

Jeanne Marcella was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Granted unlimited access to books at a very early age via the library, she quickly acquired a fondness for creating her own stories through word and drawing.

She writes queer dark fantasy not for the faint of heart, and fun (but sometimes gritty) urban fantasy soaps, all with romantic elements.
