Scarred with angelfire by a rebellious angel named Micah, Jake Cottrell is sanctioned to become the twelfth paladin in Micah's supernatural unit of slayers. However, regret abounds as Micah is banished from his command and ordered to protect what he now despises…a human he believes is unworthy of such an honor.

Jake slips far away from righteousness, outwardly proving Micah's judgment, by replying to a wicked email from next@hell.net. Forever a seeker of mischief, Jake dares Hell to burn him. Hell agrees. Davis Travers thickens the plot by introducing Jake to Rachel Darnell. A temptress extraordinaire, she erupts from the fiery pits to steal Jake's soul. After a steamy seduction from the dark side, Jake is left spellbound.

With his soul dangling between Heaven and Hell, Jake soars on a blistering blacktop to escape the wrath of Hell as he fights for redemption while transforming into the twelfth paladin. Feel the heat as you grab your precious soul and go for a virtual roller coaster ride into Hell and back.

My Review:

When playing a game with hell someone is going to get burned.  Every character has a choice in the story between good and evil and of course evil is always the more enticing option.  The use of the first person character viewpoints was effective, although the lengthy internal dialog often felt overly descriptive and caused a break in the flow.  With that being said the characters are not segregated into all good or all evil, making them more realistic to people you might meet.  The hero and heroine of this story come with their own issues but we do see them develop and mature along the way.

I was provided a copy of the book by BTS eMag for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review – all conclusions are my own responsibility.

About the Author:

Nora Weston’s fiction and poetry slips in-between and all around science fiction, fantasy, and horror. No one has ever accused her of being sane. The most terrifying things Nora has encountered are teenagers...with driving permits, and she’s taught five of these frightening creatures to drive.
