*This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she'd never do the work of her father - polluting souls.  She'd been naive to make such a vow.  She'd been naive about a lot of things.

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if ti means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school's party girl.  Her life has never looked more bleak.  And all the while there's Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time.  It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight.  Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

After the shocking events at the end of book one, Anna finds herself carefully watched by the Dukes and their demon whisperers.  She is forced to work - to encourage her friends to drink too much too often - or be punished by the Dukes (which probably means death).  Anna does a lot of growing up in this book, and really questions her feeling for Kaidan.  It doesn't help that the very handsome and very handsome Kopano has been spending so much time with her.

A lot happens in the lives of all the Nephilim this time around.  A strange prophecy surfaces that gives them some hope for a future that doesn't have to involve returning to Hell.  But there's more to it than that, and Anna and all her friends will put their lives and souls at risk to find a way to win their freedom.  With another perfect, yet heartbreaking, ending I'm finding it hard to wait for book three to come out this fall.
