Image of Demon Angel (The Guardians, Book 1)

This dark story is slow to start
and somewhat confusing, but
it gradually improves as it
progresses though the centuries.
Still, the characters are hard to empathize with, and you feel
as if you're always being on
the periphery of their lives.

In 1219, the demon Lilith has come to tempt Hugh, a young knight, and claim his soul for her father, Lucifer. Yet when her plans backfire and end in Hugh's premature death, she takes him and gives him to the Guardians, those who protect mankind from her kind.

Hugh becomes determined to save Lilith, no matter how many centuries it takes. Yet as the present decade arrives, he gives up his immortality to become mortal once more, and Lucifer requires Lilith to present to him what she failed to before -- Hugh's soul.
