Emotions run high as Archangels Gabriel and Michael join forces with their Brotherhood and their old allies, the Archdemon Guild of Glass Knives, to fight the new forces of terror that threaten the world. Loyalties are tested and loves are strained, some to breaking point.

This time, the threat is from a new direction, and no demons or rogue angels are involved. As their quest for victory continues, Gabriel and Michael and their allies find themselves drawn into the murky world of crime and speculations where who lives and who dies is determined by cash.

Review: This is book 8 in the Archangel Chronicles. It is a continuation from the previous book.

As the book starts Danny is still in a coma. The group is still on the hunt for TCC Corp group, who wants to close earth of to paranormal and supernatural beings, no matter who they are. I seriously don’t like the TCC at all. They seem bigoted, hateful, and full of themselves and give humans a bad reputation as not all humans feel the way they do.

The archangels with their allies the archdemons come together to fight off yet another threat. It was a truly horrifying new threat as witches have somehow altered their magic to be stronger yet slightly different. These are people who have been cast out from their covens and are now in cahoots with the evil TCC.

For the most part this book is about regrouping, healing, investigating more into TCC and strategizing the best way to deal with them before they can hurt anyone else or succeed with their plans to cast out all but humans from earth.

I really liked that Samael, Archangel of death and Ahijah, Nehalem, seemed to grow a closer bond. It was sad to think they would never be with anyone because of who they are. The other person I was shocked by was Danny. After coming out of his coma, he leaves everyone behind to go back home. While I understood the reasoning it was still a shock.

Though this book is not action packed it is full of awesome theories and the answers to some of them which amazed me. Also the depths with which the TCC group was willing to go just appalled me to the core. I really hope the archdemons, archangels and all their allies take these evil creatures out once and for all. I did not like the way the book ended abruptly without warning.

So this book will be continued in the next one in the series. All in all it was a great read that kept the reader engaged and entertained.
