Jilly Chan worked at a halfway house for at risk teens until she was let go without a valid reason. Jilly would do anything to help her teenagers to stay out of trouble and make a better life for themselves. She had a tough life while growing up and her mother went from one loser to another. Her older brother left home to join a cult and her younger sister ended up as a drug addict. Now she tries to spend her time helping other teenagers.
While out searching for one of her kids, she is attacked by three strange looking creatures. With no way to escape, Jilly thinks this is it but she is determined to go down fighting. Then a tall dark stranger comes to her rescue. After the creatures are taken care of, he tells her a strange tale. Leam Niall left Ireland in the mid nineteenth century to come to America. Now he is the leader of the Chicago based league of Talyan warriors. These warriors are all possessed by demons that are repentant and seeking salvation. They fight the evil that escaped into our world from the veil. The battle has always been the same but now for some unknown reason things are changing. The demons are choosing women to possess. Jilly is the second one. Liam is fighting the psychic bond between him and Jilly. Will Liam come to see Jilly as his and accept the bond that will see them mated or will he reject all that the bond means?
This is the second book in Ms. Slade's Marked Souls series. The only thing I can say about this series is WOW!!! Ms. Slade brings the fight against evil from the dark and into the light. This story is so exciting and action packed that I had a hard time putting it down. I ended up reading it in one night. I can't wait to see what comes next for this great new romantic urban fantasy series.
