Book summary: 

In a world where hunters and angels reign, war is a daily occurrence and one girl is destined to save them all.


After the brutal murder of her father, Rosa Petrova has dedicated her life to the eradication of angels and the revenge of her father's death. With the gift of fight, she becomes one of the fastest, deadliest, and greatest hunters in the world.

As Rosa hunts those who caused her father's death, two Nephilim, the children and warriors of the archangels, appear in Boston. Rosa has to find out why a Nephilim named Jason and his friend risk their lives in a city full of their enemies where they could be killed. 

Not knowing if she should follow her heart or the hunter’s code she has known all her life, she is forced to make a dangerous decision that could change her life forever. Through all the chaos around her, she finds herself falling in love with the one person she is forbidden to love. And this love could kill her...


    How far you'll get with this book depends mostly on how long you can tolerate some linguistic errors, regardless if they're grammatical, syntactic or structural or any other. As you can see I can tolerate it but then again my grammar sucks sometimes so I'm in no position to judge anyone. But also the story is really gripping and I wanted to see what will happen. I'm really happy cause of that.

    When I say happy for that I mostly mean that I've got to read the ending of this book. Yes this is a series and everything but then again this ending was the only right thing to do. But besides that this is also a story about angels and considering that they're my favorite creatures I always expect much more. That mistake is mine and mine alone so maybe some people will love this story more. The main problem for me was the characterization of angels. When you create them as villains it creates some bad feelings inside me. I don't have such a problem with Nephilim but then about archangels I do.

    To tell you more about the book. We have a girl named Rosa as a pretty good kick-ass character. After some events in her past she decided to become a hunter and with her determination she became one of the best. While living in the world where the world as we know it has been invaded the two tabors are created. Some cities are the cities of hunters while other are the cities of angels. The problems for Rose starts when all of the sudden two angels are in her city. Yes they have glamour but they can't fool Rose. Even though all her instincts tell her to kill them as it's her job she is curious to see why are they there. Something is off. Jason one of the angles is on a quest and searching for someone very important to him.

    Besides all the things I mentioned above which were problems for me this book also has some good sides. First one is the whole idea for the story is good. Maybe I'd change some things but this is not my book. The idea is good and I do see potential in it. The author also managed to create something that some author's never do - feelings. But most of the bad things could be fixed with a good editor. Towards the end of the book this became such an amazing thing. I'm really happy that I've had the opportunity to read it.

  1. I honestly don't think I could get past the grammar issues no matter what. One expects SOME in self-published works, but more than a few speak about carelessness to me, and that's something I don't appreciate at all. You can find a proofreader for like, $50.
    This actually sounds interesting aside from that, though.

    1. We're all different. I can tolerate more it seems. Yeah I know but what can I do. Yes it is really interesting.

  2. I am with Maja. I cannot stand grammitacal errors. They are like nails on chalkboard to me and I spend the whole time editing the book in my head. I love all that the indie author scene brings but I grow frustrated at the authors who try and skip the important steps like hiring a good editor they are the ones that give the indie label a bad name. I am glad you were patient enough to read this, I doubt I would have gotten past the first couple of chapters.

    1. Yes I do the same thing when I read a book in my language. I did that here too. Every sentence that was sort of incorrect I turned around to sound good. Thanks :)

  3. Grammatical error don't usually bother me too much unless they are really bad. The story and characters are what's important to me. If it's a great story, those errors just roll off my back. Sorry this wasn't quite up to your expectations, Tanja. Great review. :)

  4. This book is new to me, but it doesn't seem to be my kind of read. I can't stand grammatical errors in books for one, and i'm not digging the whole 'eradication of angels' thing. Great insight, though!

  5. It' s a shame this one didn't work for you, Tanja, so I doubt I'll pick it up. Grammatical errors are huge no-nos for me too, so I completely understand your qualms. Great review, dear! :)

  9. It's plain sad when there are too many grammatical errors and right you are! Who are we to judge? Also, it's even more sad n whem your most favourite creatures aren't portrayed well enough. "Maybe I'd change some things but this is not my book." Ha! You got that right too! Briliant review, Tanja! :D
