Synopsis from Goodreads:

Cassandra Jensen, has a shattered heart and has given up on men. Only one man can set her body on fire, but he is a fantasy that haunts her sleep.
Two worlds, one desire. When the two collide, fate will rip them apart and test their resolve. Will darkness and evil prevail? Or, will love conquer all?
I really enjoyed the fact that Twombly’s characters weren’t simply humans with supernatural abilities. They were more than human, without becoming unrecognizable. Twobmly’s character development allows the reader a glimpse into their souls without giving everything away. You get to know them without knowing everything about them. It was brilliant. I cannot believe how easy it was to form a connection with these characters. I feel like I’ve been to hell & back with them.
This was a great read. Twombly’s mix of mythology, demonology, and the paranormal, along with a twist of her own creates a uniquely unforgettable read.
