Someone’s killing angels and turning the half human, half angel illorum warriors against their angelic supporters. If the supernatural baddy behind the attacks isn’t stopped soon, Heaven itself could fall victim. The Council of Seven has called in the best they’ve got to find the killers, and no one’s more surprised than Emma Jane Hellsbane when it’s her phone that rings.

But when her own angelic mentor—and off-limits hottie—Eli is targeted, Emma takes it personally. With Emma hot on the trail of the growing army of assassins, though, hackles start to raise around her. Everyone wants to know if she’s in it to protect all angels or just one in particular. The Council has their suspicions…and so does Emma’s boyfriend.

Now Emma isn’t just fighting off demons, rogue nephilim, and Fallen angels, but she’s defending her honor as well. The problem is even Emma Jane isn’t sure of her motives. One thing she does know: if she doesn’t figure out the killers’ identities soon, she may not live long enough to know what, or who, she really wants.

It’s all in a day’s work as Heaven’s ultimate bounty hunter.

Emma Jane's life is not going as she planned.  As a half angel - half human warrior fighting against the Fallen Angels and their demons she's used to surprises and sudden excitement.  But this time when her angel, Eli, pops in with a report, even she is blown away.  Someone has killed and angel and saying heaven is pissed off would be the understatement of the year.

A lot happens in this book and sometimes it was a bit difficult to keep it all straight.  I felt exhausted on Emma's behalf with all the running around and fighting.  Of course she's not only fighting against the Fallen, but against her own forbidden urges to fall for her angel, Eli.  Tons and tons of twists and turns throughout kept the book interesting and I was never sure what was going to happen next.

While it would have been nice to slow things down just a tiny bit, I still enjoyed the wild and crazy ride this book takes.  Just be prepared to find a hard time finding a place to stop if you're reading past your bedtime.
