About The Book

Cassie Evans is more than your average supernatural hunter.

Cassie’s the daughter of a fallen angel, who vows to protect the innocent and defends the veil between the supernatural and humankind with fierce determination. Whilst investigating supernatural disturbances, she expects to find herself faced with monsters, or irate supernatural beasts. But this time it’s different.

A seer warns of a threat to the delicate peace between good and evil. Demonic forces are gathering. Unlikely alliances are forming, seeking to tip the balance in their favor. War is coming and no one is safe.

To face these dark and malevolent creatures, Cassie will have to team up with a British, fiery-tempered witch and her occult expert husband. The problem is they parted on bad terms.

And they are both her ex’s.

The Review

This is my first book by Nita Round, and I am looking forward to reading more of her work. I found myself drawn into this supernatural world and enjoying the story from start to finish.

The plot is quickly established when the main character, Cassie, is given information that sets her off on a quest to stop the opening of hell on earth. However, being from the house of the seers, she isn’t able to use anyone’s help that may be linked in some way. Instead, she assembles a rag tag group who eventually become her found family, with how close they have to work and what they go through.

This urban fantasy/paranormal story that has angels, demons, magic, shifters, faeries and necromancers. Luckily, the author doesn’t overwhelm the readers with information. Instead, this is an entertaining read that keeps you engaged as one clue leads to another and another, before the big finale. Things get dark, as the main group is attacked by demons, injuries are incurred, and there is a kidnapping off page, but friendships are also made and strengthened as Cassie and the group work their way towards saving the world.

Cassie is clearly used to mostly working alone, as her interactions with others are often curt, at least until she has been around people for a while. We start with the twins who are also part of House Aevrael but not as strong as Cassie who is a direct descendant of the fallen angel, but are helpful in their own ways.

Then things get complicated after Cassie is told about something that needs to be stopped but with very little detail, which leads her to her exes, Dante and Jude, who are now married. Quite a few tense moments there, and a couple of things happen that surprise even Cassie as they help her move forward and plan her next move. There’s even a vicar who proves to be quite helpful in certain situations, and is a very good host when supplying tea and toast. Though, I think my favourite is Evalina – quite the little faerie.

A recommended urban fantasy read, where paranormal creatures and magic abound. 4 stars.

The Reviewer

Hello all, my name is Xanthe and I am excited to be a reviewer for the PRG.

I read a lot, every night for at least 4-5 hours and I love to get lost in the world that an author has created. The best ones leave you wanting more and at a loss for words to describe just how good it is but I’ll try my best.

I live in a small town in South West England, just me and my dog Bonnie. I work part time in administration and really enjoy my job and the people I work with which I am very aware is not always the case!

I’ll read pretty much any sub genre within the mm genre. Since discovering it a few years ago, I rarely read anything else. One thing I won’t touch is horror, a definite no no for me!

Never ask me what my favourite anything is as I’ll have to give you a list of about ten or twenty things. How am I able to pick one food, book or film out of so many that I love?!
