Blurb: Jared lived an ordinary life until the day he was kidnapped because of his twin brother’s evil deeds. Days later, he comes to the horrific conclusion he will not be saved. Just when he’s lost all hope, out of nowhere an ethereal looking man appears and Jared begins to believe this gorgeous creature just might be his salvation after all.
Nemesis has one job to do. He must follow the laws of fate and sit in judgement of mortals. When Nemesis is called to witness the dire circumstances surrounding Jared because of his brother’s cruel choices, he is surprised when the helpless mortal can see and talk to him.
Instinctively knowing Jared is his forever mate, Nemesis breaks the laws of fate and saves Jared’s life, in turn threatening his own existence. Only Jared’s unconditional love and acceptance will seal their destiny together, but will his mortal be able to face the harsh judgement of what’s to come?
Review: Jared’s own twin brother left him in the hands of drug dealers to be tortured for the debts he owes. While he’s being tortured, almost ready to die, an angel (or something like an angel) appears in front of him, Nemesis.
Nemesis is the immortal fated to pass judgment on people’s souls. If he determines you worthy, you go with Thanatos (whom we met in book one) to your just reward, or if deemed unworthy, you go with another sibling into hell. Nemesis is supposed to judge Jared “good” but is shocked when he sees that Jared can actually see and talk to him. He knows from his brother Than’s experience that this must mean Jared is his “one” or mate and he must go against fate to rescue him.
At first, Jared is mad that Nemesis is still planning on damning his evil twin and they fight. In fact, it almost looks like brotherly love will trump the love of one’s mate, until a last minute sacrifice saves the day.
Ugh! I loved book one in this series so much! I loved the premise of this and the blurb, but the execution…ugh!
There were so many typos and confusing sentences that I got lost a few times. I can overlook a few but there were so many!
I also despised Jared. He never thanks Nemesis for risking his immortal soul to save him, he whines about his jerk of a brother despite all evidence of his evil deeds, he flips suddenly and decides he wants Nemesis and can’t be without him, but he’s not sure he can ever love him because he will one day judge his brother… the list goes on, lots of whining.
Nemesis also makes some odd choices that frustrated me, but he was by far the most likable character.
I will still read the next in the series – book one was really good – but I’m afraid this one just didn’t measure up.
2.75 of 5 stars, if I have to choose, I’d round down to 2.5.
Overall Impression: It was okay
