The battle for humanity continues in the second installment of Ward’s Fallen Angels series. Little time has elapsed since the conclusion of Covet, and newly minted warrior angel Jim Heron is again put to the test. There are two main story threads within this novel as humanity stands trial. Ward makes sure her tale is both gritty and highly entertaining!

It has only been a couple of days since Jim Heron died and won his first battle with the demon Devina. Devina is not about to let Jim win the war, as it will mean that good will triumph and she will be destroyed. Like Jim, Isaac Rothe is a former XOps operative who used to report to Matthias. But there is no retiring from XOps: You are either in or they kill you. Isaac has been on the run, but his arrest during an underground fighting match brings him into contact with public defender Grier Childe. As Grier tries to help Isaac, she is thrust headfirst into the deadly battle between good and evil. (SIGNET, Oct., 480 pp., $7.99)
