For seventeen-year-old Abigail, one rash decision leads to an unexpected chance for redemption. At V'Salicus Academy, a unique institute where she trains to become an agent of heaven, she struggles with the pain of her past, the changes of the present and accepts a loveless future until her path – and heart – crosses with Basil’s.

Basil's off-chance slip of the tongue binds him to a life of servitude to the Devourer, the master of hell. His existence has no upside until a chance meeting with Abigail brings new perspective.

Keeping the truth of their present lives from each other brings disaster when secrets are brought to light and the life of Abigail’s mentor is put on the line.

Can Abigail and Basil save her mentor and salvage their love amid the chaos? Or will they lose it all, destined forever to NEVERLOVE?

My Thoughts:
Abigail is a good girl with a dark secret that was eating her up inside. When she couldn't take it any more she took it into her own hands to deal with it. When she ends up in the hospital she is given a second chance at life and is able to get into a place that will train her to work for heaven in a way.

Basil is a pretty decent guy who was trying to do a good deed the ended up with his death. Now he's helping the master of hell get souls when he managed to made a deal with the devil for a second chance at life.

Both are forbidden to fall in love with anyone but managed to fall for eachother. Ones an agent of heaven the other is an agent for hell can their love last?

I loved the authors unique take on Devourers and Harvesters, I thought it was interesting but sometimes I found myself confused. After I kept reading it I understood what was going on and found the overall story great. Once that little bump of confusion was cleared I just couldn't put the book down, I managed to finish this book within a day. I thought that this book was well written. I loved that this book had more the one point of view, thats what helped me understand the whole devourers/harvesters stuff and helped me liked the characters more. I loved the connection between Abigail and Basil and can't wait to see what happens next book. Oh and before I forget I want to mention how lovely the cover is, I'm a sucker for pretty covers and thought this cover was just beautiful. 4 of 5 Stars.

Abby and Basil: New love reaches new heights as they finally give in to their lust and desire for each other.

Q: Consumed by the Devourer within and his base need to claim Abby as his own.

The crave: What it all boils down to. A crave for souls. A crave to keep love intact beyond betrayals. A crave for a second chance. A crave for power and The Fall of mankind.

“Love can conquer all” is put to the test and salvation may be impossible when they all fall down.

My Thoughts:
Abby and Basil made it through and are finally together. But secrets and still being kept and Basil is sneaking around. Abby is worried of what's going on with Basil and her feeling were confirmed when a new comer shows her random pictures he took while hanging out. Thier relationship is being tested, meanwhile Q is there there egging things on trying to get Abby to come to him.

Fantastic. Short, action-packed and enough drama to keep the reader to the very end. If I had to choose I loved this book more. There was so much going on in this book. It's unpredictable lots of twists and turns. Overall I really enjoyed thing book and think you lovely readers will too. Highly Recommend. 4.5 of 5 stars!

Born and raised in Little Rock, AR, Angela now calls Central Texas home.

Reading and writing have been lifelong passions. It was around the time she gave birth to her forever-love, nicknamed Chipmunk, that she really took writing seriously. After all, how could she teach her child to follow her dreams if she hadn't tried herself?

As a YA fantasy/sci-fi reader and author, she favors the magical, mysterious, the darker side of life...even harbors a secret fright for things that go bump in the night.

  1. Great review! I love forbidden love stories! :) Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for being on the tour, Jessica!

  2. I must admit I had a little *squee* moment when I heard Linkin Park starting in on "Somewhere I belong". Hopefully no one minded me getting up and dancing! And thank you so much for the reviews. I'm glad you enjoyed them :-)
