When Psyche finally meets the man from her dreams and is offered a great paying job she thinks that everything will get better. Until she learns that the man from her dreams is actually a fallen Angel sent to stop her from doing the mural that will change her life for the better. Psyche is a very well developed character that is very beleivable. You feel yourself hurting with her through the book.
Alexius is a fallen angel that is given a chance a redemption. All that he has to do to get his wings back and also his spot back in the heavenly army is to stop the women that he loves from paiting the mural that will launch her career. Alexius is tormented about wanting his life back but he also wants to be able to be with Psyche. Alexius is an Angel completly in love with a motal girl. Alexius is also tormented by the battle between good vs evil.
As for the two people that comissioned Psyche to do the mural are the most evil out there. They want the mural completed so that they can unleash the evil prince Lucifer himself from his prison. You can feel the evil in them through out the whole book.
This is a love story about good vs evil and the ever on going battle betweem heaven and hell. With poor Psyche as the pawn.
Danielle Smith has such a passion for her work and it really shows in this story. This story is a great story with compeling charaters, unforgetable events and just all around great story. This is one of those stories for me that once I started reading I could not put it down. And when I was not reading I could not get it out of my head. This story really draws you into it. I would recommend this story to anyone who is not affected by foul language. I can not wait for the rest of the series.
