After crawling her way out of Hell, Six is ready to cast aside her angel wings and all the responsibilities that come with them. But Earth is not as peaceful as she imagined it. Demons, dark angels, and other hell-beasties escaped before her, and they're not as content as she is to live a quiet life on Earth.Exclusive excerpt :
A fellow angel who escaped Hell with her commits a series of soul-murders, destroying human souls so they can't go to the afterlife. Although Six has conflicting feelings about humans, she goes after the other angel to keep their escape a secret from the one she fears most.
“So . . .” I said. “Why did you call?”
“Do I need a reason?” He wrapped an arm around my shoulders.
“Of course not.”
A comfortable silence stretched between us for a span of minutes. While I waited for him to speak, I stared out at the city around me. Twinkling lights lay scattered across the ground and climbed up the dark silhouettes of buildings, highlighted against the deep blue background of the darkening sky. Soon, I found myself kicking gleefully at the empty air beneath me, in time with Alden.
He finally spoke again. “How do you like Earth?”
A loud guffaw slipped from my lips. I had to catch myself from falling off the building as I laughed. Alden’s deeper-pitched laughter joined mine.
“Oh, you know,” I said, still chuckling. “All this fresh air and temperate weather. No blood-curdling screams to rock me to sleep at night.” I turned to him and shrugged. “It’s kind of dull, don’t you think?”
His face went serious. “It’s almost perfect.”
“Yeah.” I nodded. “Well, except for the humans anyway.”
So what do you think?
I cannot wait to read this!
