Xandir has been exiled to earth until the end of time. But when his cherub trainee disappears, Xandir makes a deal with rogue angels and giants that could restore life to the mortal woman he loves and end his assignment as a destroying angel in exchange for helping them bring about the end of the world and all of mankind.
I can't say I love the blurb. This book is so much MORE than that. When I first decided to read it, I wasn't sure what to expect. However, the two paralleling storylines work well together. Each time I was ripped from one and deposited in another, I had a moment of "No! I'm not ready!" followed by "Oh, I've missed you guys."
The action and surprising developments kept me reading and guessing. The end caught me totally off-guard--and I loved it! There was only one section of the book when I found myself wishing I could hurry things along, probably because the rest of the book flew.
Michael has assured me there WILL be a sequel. And I can assure you that I will be begging for an ARC

This is a very different read, folks, but I really enjoyed it.
