I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The old saying is true. Knowledge really is power, especially when angels and gods play the game.
The original Immortals, masters of magic, once reigned over every world in the known universe—until they suddenly vanished. The gods and demons have been fighting over the remains of their fractured empire ever since.
Millennia later, new angel Leda, a soldier in the gods’ army, is recuperating from her transformation. Her recovery is cut short, however, when a curse strikes New York City, a spell targeted directly at the Legion of Angels. Even as the Legion’s soldiers succumb to wrath, jealousy, and fear, the beasts on the plains of monsters are growing in numbers and power. And the longer Leda and her archangel lover Nero investigate these phenomena, the closer they come to the ancient secret that destroyed the Immortals—and that now threatens to tear the Earth apart.

The Legion of Angels series has been building and building. Every one has been more exciting for me as the challenges and tribulations for Leda and Nero continue to materialize. So much happens in each book it is hard to review without spoilers.
Leda must adjust to her new status and the Legion does not give her much time to do that. It’s a whirlwind for her. There is definitely a mystery that needs to be solved, but the answer to that mystery is not what you expect. I guess that is why it’s a mystery, right?
I loved the pace of the action as well as all the twists and turns. Nothing is easy for Leda and Nero, but obstacles sometimes come with rewards. But, we also have to look and see if those rewards are actually rewards and not more obstacles. This is always in the back of my mind while I listen to this. Something always happens to turn things into chaos for Leda.
Once again, I’m so glad I waited for the audio. The narration by Cris Dukehart was as great as I always find her. My issue is that book 9 has yet to be made into audio. So, I sit and wait again. I am confident it will be worth the wait!
