You can't change your DNA…even when it says you're a murderer. When Davy tests positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome, aka "the kill gene," she loses everything. Once the perfect high school senior, she is uninvited from her prep school and abandoned by her friends and boyfriend. Even her parents are now afraid of her - although she's never hurt a fly. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone. Without any say in the matter, Davy is thrown into a special class for HTS carriers.

Decades after being banished from Heaven for saving a life he shouldn't have, Lash is given a chance to redeem himself. His mission: protect Naomi Duran, a young woman who has lost her faith. The assignment proves to be anything but simple when his superiors, the Archangels, withhold key information about Naomi and refuse to restore Lash's powers. When an unexpected source reveals centuries-old secrets, his trust is shaken to the core, and he begins to doubt those whom he had once considered to be his greatest allies.

What disappointed you about Lash?

Well this book had a good premise it didn't follow through there were a lot of potholes I found and something that the authors soon and that I knew that I really had no idea it's better I would rather listen to somebody explain something a couple times throughout the book then not no I did not care for the ending where the angel in the girl shacked up together to meet it just seems wrong

What was most disappointing about L. G. Castillo’s story?

The fact of the fallen Angel was engaging in sin

What does Maren McGuire bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like your voice breach character

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I read about this book before I read it, so I knew the surprise going in. With that said, I didn't find the story confusing. Though u had to pay attention. I loved the message and the cause of the haunted house was pefect!
