On the eve of the impending war between Heaven and Hell, the demon Kinzer and his mortal ally Maggie hunt for a powerful weapon that could destroy all of humanity.

The angel Treycore’s ex-girlfriend abducted his lover Kid and dragged him into the bowels of Hell. Now, Treycore searches for an entry into the immortal realm. But only one creature can assist him on his quest: Eilee, the most beautiful of the angels and another of Treycore’s previous lovers. After the war between Heaven and Hell, Eilee lost her mind and went on a murderous rampage. With her guidance, Treycore descends into Hell and battles God’s earliest creations as they journey to save Kid from the sadistic clutches of his villainous ex.
There is so many twist and turns that you do not know what is coming from one paragraph to the next. Then there are more and mor surprises every time you turn around. Devon McCormack definitely knows how to bring mystery, intrigue, and suspense to his books
This book in particular has ex’s that are out for revenge, evil beings turning against there bosses, enemies becoming lovers, friends that fight a good fight but do not survive, those that we thought could not possibly make it out alive being rescued by the one they love, and those that should never become allies becoming so much more.
With each page you think you finally have it figured out only to be thrown for another loop and discover that things are not what they seem to be and neither are the people.
Such a fascinating read that I could not put it down and I cannot wait for the next book in series. So please hurry with the next book Devon cause I am curious to see what happens next and what you come up with.
I was given this book for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.
This second installment has more action involved – more mystery and the characters seem to be more involved with the plot of finding the secret weapon – trying to defend the world. While it’s not that much different than the first book, there is still hot, winged, forceful sex, but the characters seem to develop more of a relationship – you get to see their reasons behind their actions.
The characters think more in this story – it’s more dialogue and more figuring out how to save the world. I will admit that despite my reservations from the first story, this one did keep my attention a little more because there seems to be many more story lines going on. Finding a love, developing relationship, searching for a child, hiding from the enemy – all of these intermingle throughout and create this almost epic story.
Overall, I enjoyed this story a little more than the first and it definitely left me wanting to know what happens next, but I was also disappointed too – and still, at certain points of the story was trying to figure out who was who, their past relationships and how everything and everyone fit together.
Devon McCormack spends most of his time hiding in his lair, adventuring in paranormal worlds with his island of misfit characters. A good ole Southern boy, McCormack grew up in the Georgian suburbs with his two younger brothers and an older sister. At a very young age, he spun tales the old fashioned way, lying to anyone and everyone he encountered. He claimed he was an orphan. He claimed to be a king from another planet. He claimed to have supernatural powers. He has since harnessed this penchant for tall tales by crafting whole worlds where he can live out whatever fantasy he chooses.
A gay man himself, McCormack focuses on gay male characters, adding to the immense body of literature that chooses to represent and advocate gay men’s presence in media. His body of work ranges from erotica to young adult, so readers should check the synopses of his books before purchasing so that they know what they’re getting into.
