Something about Lindsay Gibson makes him believe in hope again after all these years. Adrian is not your typical man in the 21st century but a leader of the angels. His mission is to make sure everything is normal and all his angels are not captured by the fallen angels. As the leader he must maintain control and never show any weakness. Yet meeting Lindsay again is turning out to be a huge distraction. Can he keep his angels in control and not fall for temptation?
Lindsay Gibson doesn't know what is happening, but something about Adrian Mitchell gets her going. Something about Adrian makes her wonder if they met before in another time. He knows things about her that seem like memories to her. Even though they barely met she feels a strong connection. It's more than sexual chemistry towards him. Someone though doesn't want them together. An evil force is tearing them apart and killing all those that Adrian loves. Each day with Adrian is making Lindsay realize how important he has become. Can she go back to her life knowing that Adrian is her other half in life?
This is the first I have read from Sylvia Day and have to say it won't be the last. Sylvia Day created a story about one man's loss and a woman's second chance at getting her man back. Reading the first chapter in this book got me hooked for Sylvia Day takes you to a world where you have fallen angels, lycans and most of all a man trying to be the leader he is destined to be. All in all it was a great book and highly recommended.
Can a love that transcends death survive a war between angels, vampires, and lycans?
Adrian Mitchell is an angel of immense power and insatiable desire. Leading an elite Special Ops unit of the Seraphim, his task is to punish the Fallen—angels who have become vampires—and command a restless pack of indentured lycans.
But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals—losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly two hundred years, he has found her—Shadoe, her soul once more inhabiting a new body with no memory of him. Only this time he won’t let her go.
With no memory of her past as Shadoe, Lindsay Gibson only knows she can’t help being fiercely attracted to the smoldering, seductive male who crosses her path. Swept into a dangerous world of tumultuous passion and preternatural conflict, Lindsay is soon caught in the middle between her angel lover, her vampire father, and a full-blown lycan revolt. There’s more at stake than her love and her life—this time she could lose her very soul…
