HELL HATH NO FURY . . .

For five thousand years, Revenant believed he was alone in the world, a fallen angel beyond any redemption. Now he finds he has a twin brother who had all the light and love Revenant was denied. Caught in a tug of war between Heaven and Hell, he must weigh his thirst for revenge against his desire for a mysterious female named Blaspheme—a female whose very origins could deliver him into salvation . . . or destruction.

LIKE AN ANGEL SCORNED

Blaspheme has a deadly secret: she's the forbidden offspring of an angel and a fallen angel. Hunted by both heavenly and satanic forces, she has survived only by laying low and trusting no one. When Revenant claims he can save them both, how can she possibly believe him? But the powerful angel is persistence incarnate and for Blaspheme, there's no place she can hide in Heaven or Hell where he won't find her . .

Revenant is a new character to the series, and I kind of wondered how I was going to take to him. He was not portrayed as the most likeable character in the last couple of books. Now though, his story had my heart breaking. He was truly lost, his returned memory leaving him feeling like he didn’t belong anywhere. He doesn’t know who to trust or believe. Then he meets Blaspheme. He has this connection to her that just makes him feel right. Not only is he attracted to her, but he just feels like “home” with her. Like he truly belongs. I don’t care how much Rev tried to make himself seem a bad guy at times. His need for a connection was so strong, I don’t think he could have resisted the one he had with Blaspheme.

I really loved Blaspheme. She has such spunk and fire. So strong and independent. I just wish she had of been able to be honest with Rev from the beginning. I really think that he would have protected her right from the start even if he had of known her secret. Blaspheme’s mother was quite the character to deal with. I kept thinking she was going to totally ruin everything! I was so glad that the staff at UG were so good to her and really took care of her and her mother. I also loved seeing them all!

The war between heaven and hell gets really intense. Revenant plays such a big part. Each side is pulling strings while the countdown is on. The battle gets so exciting and I was glued to my headset, holding my breath. Shock, fear, heartbreak. It was a flood of emotions! These are some strong foes that we are dealing with. Definitely an exciting read!

I’m so glad Hillary Huber was back for this book. Reaver’s was such a disappointment I was scared that Hillary would try to carry Revenant’s accent over to this book. I didn’t feel like she did, and I think her narration really added to the pleasure I got from this book.
