What would you do if the only things standing between you and the angel you love were another angel and the fiery pits of Hell?
When Anya and Micah declare their love for each other, the battle for the souls of the star-crossed angels stretches across the heavens. With Heaven forbidding their love, Micah vows to protect Anya by sentencing himself to Hell.
But Anya won’t let him go without a fight. She goes into Hell after him, only to discover an angel from Micah’s past is willing to do anything to keep Micah in Hell.
With love and lies blinding Micah, Anya fights to get him to face his demons and return to Heaven, even if it means hearts will be broken.
The battle for the angels begins where it left off. Between Heaven and Hell is forbidden love.
Thank you to Faye for contacting me to take part in this tour. I loved Adorned and I was thrilled to be asked to take part.
We begin exactly where the first book left off. Anya is just about to enter Hell. Once she does she realises it’s a vast desert land. There is nothing for miles. She doesn’t know what to do or how to get out. She’s then abducted by Cole who assures her he can help. Anya isn’t sure whether to trust him but to be honest she has no alternative, what else is she going to do burn in the desert? Anya goes with Cole who takes her to literally the last place in Hell she want’s to go Dahlia’s.
This book is full of so many twists and turns that I was at a loss at who to trust. It seemed that everyone had a ulterior motive for trying to help Anya and were just using her for their own personal gain.
All Anya wanted to do was get to Micha. Her forbidden love. He is insistent that they cannot be together. I liked Micha and all I wanted was for the two of them to be together. They go through so much that it feels like they deserve to be happy.
There is a whole host of supporting characters in this book that range from Evil and manipulative to creepy and perverted and of course there’s a few good ones thrown in there too.
This is an excellent follow up to the first story and I really hope there’s a third.
What are you two doing?” The deep voice coming from the hallway sends a happy
tremor through my body. I jump to my feet to run to Micah, but I’m stopped by the
piercing pain of glass going through my foot. I look down to see blood trickling on the
floor. When I sit on the couch to pull out the shard, Kieran and Emory hover around me.
“Why are you in my room?” Micah asks, angrily.
Kieran and Emory move to the side to give Micah a direct line to me. I look up and his gaze grabs mine. We stare at one another, caught in a wordless hello. Small expressions run over his face, telling me he’s relieved, happy, confused.
“Leave us,” he says quietly without looking away from me.
Kieran and Emory hurry out of the room, shutting the door behind them. Micah closes his eyes. He takes a deep breath, bows his head and mutters something under his breath. When he looks up, he stares at me in disbelief. He doesn’t seem to notice the glass crunching under his feet as he steps toward me. His lips quiver, trying to form words that won’t come.
The fire crackles and pops behind him. Micah’s eyes glisten while he studies my shaking hand, reaching for him. My hand finds his, linking our fingers together. The strong beat of his pulse thumps in his trembling fingers. I step cautiously to the floor, avoiding the glass. When I’m eye level with him, his pupils flicker. As soon as I open my mouth to tell him how much I missed him, he pulls me to his body and covers my mouth with his. Every pent up emotion is released the second he kisses me. I don’t know where this Micah came from. His mouth claims mine without reservation or fear of repercussions. I fall into his embrace, enjoying every bit of the intensity of the kiss that tells me he missed me as much as I missed him. The tension in his body falls away as his hands travel through my hair and down my back, over my hips and up my sides like he’s making sure I’m real. I’m real, Micah, I want to say but I don’t want to stop kissing him. The taste of his lips brings to life the forbidden feelings I’m done hiding. I can’t get enough of him.
