Limos, the main character of this novel, is far from the
everyday heroine. She is promised to the Devil and the
Devil certainly wants her badly. This is bad news for
Arik, who has taken a sudden and deep interest in Limos.
When he steals a kiss and lands in the literal Hell, he has
to endure torture endlessly. When he is finally freed, he
realizes that the torture never really ended. He must
decide whether to risk the world or accept the love between
Limos and himself-provided she's willing.
Limos is a fun character. She is certainly no shy, timid
heroine. She is brave, clever, and desirable. It is hard
not to like her. Arik is a surprisingly kind hero, he
might strike the reader as far more gentle than the typical
hero in Ione's novels. Arik's compassion and kindness will
earn him a place in the reader's heart. The secondary
characters, particularly the Devil, are very interesting
and integral to the story-though the book does mainly focus
on Limos and Arik.
The events are fast-paced and exciting. The book is hard
to put down and the reader will likely finish the book in a
matter of days.
The signs are everywhere...disastrous world events. Evil
rising up, unleashed upon the innocent. The prophecies were
there...but no one listened. Until now. The time has come
for those who can either usher in Doomsday...or prevent it.
They are here. They ride. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Arik Wagner, a soldier with the U.S. Army's paranormal unit,
the R-XR, kissed a girl and liked it. And then he went to
hell as punishment. Where he's spent weeks being
tortured...and plotting revenge.
