A strong-minded heroine takes the lead in this story of a fallen angel offspring who takes it upon herself to protect humankind from human and non-human monsters alike. Upon her identity being discovered and her losing everything that was important in her life, Samantha discovers friendship, a new love and the freedom to be herself openly with the ones she loves. A new tall, dark, handsome, loving, considerate and rich love interest tops the story very nicely.
Amanda Holt does an excellent job explaining to the reader the history of this unique heroine by laying down the details of her life before her loses. Even though I had not read the first 3 books in this series, I was left with a feeling of understanding and an attachment to the characters by they story’s details that gave me an interest in the outcome and well-being of the characters. All in all I would say that I would definitely want to read the first 3 books in this series and future books by Amanda Holt as well.
