The once-great city of Gastar now stands underpopulated and in ruins following centuries of war against an evil priesthood. Now a demon lord arrives with plans for annihilation of the people and plans to create a half-demon, half-human son to stay and rule after Gastar becomes an extension of hell. A trio of former soldiers arrive to help the people regain their battle skills and hope for victory. An unexpected ally arrives, the teen assassin Shevata, who participated in a rescue mission in hell to rescue living hostages. Upon her return to the human world, she was cursed by having her soul removed after killing an evil priest without a death order. Her presence gets the attention of the demon lord, as he knows her from the experience in the underworld as a powerful adversary. Shevata, the humans, a human traitor, the demon lord, his son, and Shevata’s dragon mentor ignite the spark that drives this fast paced action story to its dramatic end with more to come.
The view of a book addict:
Wow this story throws you right into a war and you won’t get the chance to catch your breath. It moves along quickly and is full of action. It’s well written and although there is a lot of action going on most of the time you do get some insight in the characters along the way.
I loved the whole team of this book, humans fighting agains demons. But the story never come predictable. I love the writing style of this book, it’s easy to follow and although there are some strange names in the book that never irritated me.
The verdict of a book addict:
A wonderful book full of action, if you’re a fan of the good action packed urban fantasy books this really is a book for you! I can’t wait for the next book in this series.
