Blurb: Peirs had accepted his life of servitude to an angel. His keeper asked only for a willing body, and in exchange his needs were met and he was fed and clothed. Peirs might have served the angel forever—it was the only life he knew—but one day Peirs discovered something he had no way to plan for. After a millennium, he was pregnant. Peirs now must summon the courage to escape his master and the unbendable angelic law that declared no half-breeds should live, but running into an angelic soldier in the back room of a bar wasn’t part of his plan.
After years of begging to go to the battlefields on Earth, Tabbis, the youngest angel in Heaven, finally got his assignment. Ready for heroics and bloodshed, he was stunned when he found enchanting and seductive Piers instead. Tabbis was duty bound to kill Peirs, but Peirs’s very existence challenged everything Tabbis thought he knew.
Tabbis needs answers. Peirs wants nothing more than to save his baby and live in peace. Can they band together to help each other? Or will the wrath of Heaven tear them apart?
I love reading about angels, demons, and mpreg so this was a no-brainer when I’d seen it. And guess what? It was pretty awesome. The premise was a little different than I’d usually expect in an angels and demons book, but that difference was enough to keep me completely invested from start to finish. We have a bit of a religious undertone, which is expected with this type of story, but it was not anything like I’d thought it would be. This story is about love and adoration, but it is also about betrayal, lies, and deception. There is also a slightly humorous side that added some much needed levity to the whole thing.
Peirs is created during the great war between Angels and Incubus…and sadly, he wakes up at the end of the battle, finds himself captured and used by the Archangel Michael. An angel whose idea of protection is more along the lines of cruelty and non-con sex. I can’t say rape, per se, because Peirs is an incubus and lust and sex is what keeps him alive. Sadly, the poor incubus hates the way he needs to “feed”…until he escapes and meets Tabbis…another angel.
Tabbis is the baby angel, and Yahweh’s beloved. It takes him forever to convince his God that he really wants to be on earth killing demons. He wants to please him at all costs. But, when he finds Peirs, he is confused. Is he a demon or not? He feels like he should kill him and return him to hell, but something is off. Compound that with his attraction to Peirs and poor Tabbis lives up to his baby angel moniker. He really is the only one who is has no idea what to believe.
During all of this, there are the subtle hints of lies and deception that the other angels are pushing at him, but they want him to learn on his own. Tabbis doesn’t want to believe that everything he has ever believed was a lie, but Peirs needs him, Peirs and the baby he is carrying. The relationship between Peirs and Tabbis slowly grows as they try to find a safe place to hide. But leave it to Hadrian, Tabbis’ fellow angel and mentor, to push the issue.
I really enjoyed the Lucifer and Yahweh and Michael storyline. I really don’t believe that is completely settled, so I am hoping the next books gets us some closure…or at least, see more of that storyline. Regardless, this is a well written story that I found very interesting and enjoyable. Recommended for those who enjoy stories about mpreg, angels, demons, and incubus.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
*I received a copy of this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.*
