Goodreads Summary

It's been three thousand years since the fall of Azzaziel and the rebirth of evil; three thousand years since the Sentinal Order, an elite group of warrior angels, returned to Celestium. Their job-rid Earth of the dark creatures, the UnHoly. And with luck, end Azza's rule. As if casting out demons isn't hard enough, five-hundred-year-old Nesy has to masquerade as a teenage girl to do it. Nesy is the best of the Sentinals. She never makes mistakes, never hesitates, never gets emotionally involved. Until she meets Aydan. He is evil incarnate; a fallen angel that feeds off the souls of others. Everything Nesy is supposed to hate. But she can't, because he's also the love of her former life as a human girl-a life that ended too soon, tying her to emotions she was never supposed to feel. Now Nesy must choose between doing her duty-damning Aydan to the fiery depths of hell-or saving him, and condemning herself. And her choice may cost her, and Celestium, far more than anyone realizes. How much will she sacrifice for love?

Wow!! What an amazing book!! The world of Angels and Demons is just fantastic! Christine Fonseca has written a truly amazing book, which has left me wanting more! I Loved It!! I was hooked on this book from the start.

Aydan was an Angel, who fell in love with a human girl, Elle. After she died Aydan Fell, and became the apprentice of The Dark One. Nesy became an Angel after her death as a human, and trained to be a Sentinal. She had to learn to detach all of her human feelings so she can kill Unholy demons. It is on one assignment that she is sent to kill Aydan and all her human feelings surface again and jeopardises everything that she is.

The book is beautifully written, in both Nesy and Aydan’s perspectives. There is so much emotion in the story and I just couldn’t put the book down. I can’t wait to see where we will go next. Bring on the next book, Libera Me!
