I don’t know who I am or where I came from.
The only thing I do know is that I’m running from something.
And there’s a voice inside my head that guides my every move…
When I’m taken prisoner to be thrust into a lifetime of prostitution, I learn I’m an angel. Yes, I bear the markings on my back: markings that reveal my wings have been removed. But when my only ally, a foul-mouthed sprite, insists my wings are intact, I realize the danger I’m facing.
I need protection. And that protection can only come from three magically powerful men who were destined to protect the balance between shadow and light:
Dragan, a gargoyle and the King of Shadow;
Cambion, an elf and the King of Nature;
and Baron, a vampire and the King of Death.
At one time there were four but Variant, the King of Light, grew greedy and usurped control for himself. He banished Cambion to the fae realm and Dragan to the shadow realm. And he murdered Baron.
And now Variant is after me...

I’m usually a huge H.P. Mallory fan, but I didn’t particularly like this one for two reasons.
Firstly, the narration of the story switches between 4(ish) characters. That in itself is typically fine, but one of the characters is... uneducated, perhaps is the best word. His narration (not just his dialogue) is full of grammatical errors, particularly incorrect tense and dropping of letters. I just found this really annoying to read.
Secondly, character development. I feel like none of the characters had the depth that Mallory’s previous characters have had, or at the very least, interested me as a reader. Without spoiling too much, the motives behind the character’s actions are never really explained in any depth. They’re all surface motives, with no real feeling behind them. Most of the motives in this story revolve around, “she’s hot, so I’m helping”. And that’s really all the female character has going for her. She’s lacking in emotion and depth — just like every one of the other characters.
Sometimes with a book, it isn’t the story that keeps you coming back but the characters. Unfortunately with this book, I could take or leave the characters as well as the story. Nothing about either endears itself to the reader.
Absolutely love it. Flumph steals the show.
