Archangel Uriel is hell bent on revenge on the demon prince Vladek. To get into the prince’s impenetrable fortress, he’ll have to fight in the pits of the underworld. And he’ll need the help of the last person he can trust –– the demon witch Nadya.
There is no way Nadya, who spends her days taking care of others, expected to find Uriel on her doorstep. He seems no happier about being there than she does. But helping him means evening the scales against her backstabbing sister, and she’ll do whatever it takes to make that bitch pay.
Using the fight pit circuits in the demon underworld, Nadya helps Uriel combat his way to the arena at the castle in Russia. Only she isn’t what she seems. As a matter of fact, she may hold the key to his redemption...and to his heart.

Fantastic fantasy w/spectacular characters!
Goodness, goodness me! This is another masterpiece of writing in this fantastic fantasy world created by the always fabulous Ms. Cross with spectacular characters and a thrilling storyline. This story finds Uriel, the beautiful archangel, on the mend after his escape from the torture by Vladek demon witch, Lisabette. Those two are such wonderful villains that you love to hate. Uriel wants his revenge and to stop Vladek's demonic treatment of humans and other creatures. That archangel is epitome of goodness! Uriel finds himself in need of help from the one person he has no interest in every seeing again, the human witch Nadya. Even though she aided Uriel when he was held captive, she's still a witch and Lisabette's sister and not to be trusted as far as Uriel is concerned. What Uriel doesn't realize is that Nadya was held captive and tortured by Vladek and was not a willing subject to the evil demon king like he thought. Uriel and Nadya have so much in common as they both endured atrocities at the hands of the demon king and Lisabette. Nadya doesn't hesitate to help Uriel even at great risk to herself. It doesn't take long for Uriel to see the true goodness and light that is Nadya and, of course, who wouldn't be all tingly in the presence of the sexy golden archangel. He's the bomb! As they plan Vladek's downfall, the attraction and love between the two grows into a beautiful romance. Spine-tingling chemistry and a sweet connection. I was a goner when Uriel used his special magic to heal Nadya of her scars from her time with Vladek. And there's some sexy role playing as Uriel works his way through the demon fighting pits to get to Vladek. Lots of tense action and a heart-stopping thrill ride as they finally reach their goal and the ultimate fight with Vladek that puts Nadya in danger and Uriel calling all his heavenly resources to defeat evil. All the old crew is there for the final battle and it's spellbinding, nail biting excitement. Another epic battle in this outstanding series. I can't believe this is the last story. What about the hunky Maximus and the German rocker demon brothers and the fierce humans? I want their stories! Maybe a new series? I hope so because this left me wanting more of the fantastic world where heaven and hell is unleashed on earth and angels and humans fight the demons for dominance in the timeless story of good versus evil. Plus all the swoon-worthy creatures and heart-melting romance. Absolutely terrific! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC.
I've been waiting this whole time for Uriel's story and man was it EVERYTHING. Uriel has intrigued from the start. I'm drawn to the cold and dangerous characters. There is just something about reading a character like that finding his other half. This book had me giddy with how Uriel slowly thawed for Nayda. It's everything that I love to see in a couple.
Nayda was an amazing heroine. I love it when an author can create a woman to admire and respect. She was such a sweet person who cared more about others than herself. She has reason to fear so much but that never stopped her from doing the right thing. She was perfect for Uriel.
Their love story wasn't the only thing that held me captive. Finally seeing our favorite characters go after Vladek was so satisfying. His rein of terror lasted too long and who better than to take him down that the two who were most effected by him.
I'm sad to see this series end. Every book has been captivating to read. I've loved all the characters. Each of them have been unique in their own way and brought a lot to the series as a whole. This kind of series is one of my favorite type to read. I easily get hooked on a story where good fights evil and wins. This was an amazing series and I highly recommend it for all you paranormal lovers.
