Summary: Khara has spent centuries discovering everything about the Underworld―except her place in it. But when she’s ripped from her home, solving the riddle of her origins becomes more important than ever. With evil stalking her through the dark alleys of Detroit, she finds salvation from an unlikely source: a group of immortal warriors sworn to protect the city. Khara needs their help to unravel the tangled secrets of who and what she is—secrets many seem willing to kill for. But time is running out, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer necessity binds her to an arrogant fallen angel. Can their shaky alliance withstand that which threatens her, or will her soul fall victim to the unholy forces that hunt her―those that seek the Unborn?
Review: I make the biggest effort to finish everything, even if it means taking breaks from a book multiple times. I did that with this and after half of it I just can’t get into it so I’m giving up! There are many instances where I felt it to just be lacking and nothing making sense. The main character Khara seems so strong and bad ass while alternating between to being seemingly blind to things going on around her. I will admit that perhaps it’s just not a type of book meant for me, but the slowness, stiff dialogue, and what I felt was a lack of more depth beyond the main character just left it to be unreadable for me. I am disappointed though – the premise of the book could be great but the style in which it is written is not at all for me.
