Maccus Fury, a fallen angel, is trying hard to keep his sanity. Seems being an assassin might be catching up with him. Now, Heaven, or Hell, has sent a beautiful assassin to kill him. Lovely. She's pretending to seduce him, and he's okay with that. She's smart and snarky – but she has no idea what she's walked into. And he's more than peeved that they only sent one person. They're going to need an army if they want him dead.
Morrigan Quill is one of Hell's bounty hunters. She sold her soul to keep her sister safe, and now she's working off her contract by catching bad guys and dragging them back to hell. When Lucifer makes her a new offer – that's definitely too good to be true – she can't say no. All she has to do is kill a powerful and crazy-hot fallen angel, who will totally kick her ass in battle.
Good thing he won't see what's coming next.
After selling her soul to Lucifer to save her sister, Morrigan is one of Hell’s best bounty hunters. When Lucifer offers her a way out of her contract, she thinks it’s too good to be true. When she finds out who she is supposed to kill, she knows that she’s going to die. No one goes after the Forgotten Brotherhood, a group of misfit paranormals that police the paranormal world. Maccus Fury is the unofficial leader of the Forgotten Brotherhood. As a fallen angel, Morrigan knows that it will be almost impossible to kill Maccus. She doesn’t know that Maccus has been ordered to kill her by Gabriel himself.
Maccus doesn’t kill humans. He certainly won’t kill Morrigan, unless she tries to kill him first. As the two spend time together, they both realize that they are being used as pawns in a game that they don’t even know they are a part of.
I really liked the story, but there was something missing. I can’t put my finger on what it was. I really enjoyed Morrigan. She was a badass bitch. I really liked Maccus. When Morrigan sacrifices herself for him, it just about killed me. He was so surprised and that just broke my heart. He was so used to being betrayed by people that he trusted that it was hard for him to believe that Morrigan would do something so selfless.
Although it’s not my favorite book, I liked it enough to continue the series.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
