When Priana Grey walks into a bank, she isn’t expecting to be taken hostage by a violent thief; nor, is she expecting Detective Joe Cafaris to offer his life for hers. The stepdaughter of fallen angels of the Sanctum, she has concealed her true nature to move among humans for years, but Joe’s courage astounds her. Although she knows that falling in love with a human is a disaster, she just can’t ignore what she feels.
Joe is a tough loner, cool in the most dangerous situations, but he’s not ready for the scorching desire he feels for Priana. He has a million logical reasons to walk away, but his heart wants something else.
Priana’s stepbrother, Keirc, warns that she’ll find only misery with Joe, yet he guards a perilous secret of his own. His lover, Iridea, is the daughter of Sebastien Galaurus, a ruthless vampire who leads the Demesne, a powerful supernatural haven quite unlike the Sanctum.
When a stunning crisis forces Priana into the heart of the Demesne, a maelstrom explodes in the shadow of supernatural havens on the brink of war, where fallen angels, vampires, weres and daemons call the shots and humans are viewed as critically frail - a place where men and supernaturals can die.
Sanctum Angels starts off with a bang! From the first sentence in the prologue to the end of the first chapter, I couldn't put this book down. What a way to start a book! I was hooked.
What originality, and I have to say, I've come across some great vampire/shifter novels, but never vampire/angels or vampire/daemons. I loved everything about this book. The whole daemon/vamp and angel/vamp thing was so intriguing that I couldn't wait to learn more in this wonderful world Black created.
Black did a magnificent job laying out a very enticing plot, drawing you in and keeping you wanting to turn the pages to find out what happens next. Just beautiful!
I would highly recommend Sanctum Angels for a different spin on the Supernatural Universe, a beautiful love story, and just a plain old good new Indie Author to test drive.
Kudos! I can't wait for the next book, Sanctum Warriors!
Pria heard a sharp intake of breath next to her that alarmed her more than removing her red dress, which was little more than a long tee shirt. She whipped the dress over her head and kicked her flip flops to the center of the floor. Down to her slip, she glanced at the girl, who was sliding a pair of cut offs down thin, tan legs. She wore a simple pink top with buttons and white cotton panties. Her fingers fluttered over the shirt’s buttons, unable to make herself undo them.
“Honey…” Pria whispered.
“I’m not wearing a bra,” the girl hissed, in a panicky voice.
“It’ll be okay. Keep the shirt on. Just don’t say a word, no matter what.”
In a moment, the thief’s eye came to rest on the girl, as the other hostages continued disrobing. He strode forward until he was inches of her face.
“Get your shirt off, bitch!” he screamed.
The girls squeezed her eyes closed as if to protect herself from his fury. She turned her head away, expecting to be hit.
Pria noted the thief’s hot breath and dirty, blond hair. His pale skin was specked with acne scarring. Spittle gathered at the corners of his thin lips.
Pria’s hand flew upward in front of the man’s face. “She won’t run,” she said firmly. “That’s why you want us to take our shoes and clothes off…so we won’t run for the door. She won’t run.”
The gunman looked down at Pria, as if aware of her for the first time.
