Blurb:

When falling in love means risking everything, an angel must decide if losing his heart is worth it.

Lam is an Agnus Dei—or a messenger angel—who deals with mortals and the Four Horsemen. He’s helped them to find love and become mortal again, but he can’t seem to figure out his own relationship. Of course, it would be so much easier if he hadn’t fallen for Lucifer Daystar, the most infamous angel out there.

Lucifer Daystar has loved Lam since the moment he saw him. They’ve hidden their relationship since Lam isn’t supposed to fraternize with Day. He wishes things could be different, but he won’t risk Lam getting into trouble for being with him. Then one day Lam disappears and Day must search the world to find him.

By the time Day rescues him, will Lam have decided that loving a fallen angel isn’t worth the pain?

My View:

While you don’t “need” to read the previous 4 books in this series to read this one, you really should. The MCs from the previous stories are key players in this story and Lam was instrumental in their books. You won’t have the same understanding and connection to Lam and Day if you read this as a standalone.

I loved this twist on Heaven and Hell in this story and I loved the way the author challenged conventional ideals of God and the angels. It was fascinating to see this world and ideology revealed even more than in the first four books. I loved the way good and bad was twisted and I loved the way love won in the end.

I have to say that Lam and Day’s story was not what I was expecting from the blurb. I thought there would be more action and more involvement of the bad guys but there wasn’t. The focus was more on understanding Day and Lam’s history together and showing how their love came to be so intense. The story also focused more on forgiveness and moving on when wrongs can’t be righted fully.

I will admit the this book felt like something was missing. I loved Lam and Days love but their story felt rushed and felt like it wasn’t fleshed out. The romantic ending was perfect but the plot ending was not. I did not care for the judge’s pronouncement and the way it turned out. And I still have questions about how Lam and Day will last in the long run.

Maybe these will be another story in the future but it feels like this was meant to be the end. And while I loved the love and the world, the way it all wrapped up didn’t feel complete to me.
