Life has never been kind to teen Elle Connor. With a troubled home life, the gritty, violent streets of Los Angeles have become her home. She never questions her superhuman abilities until she encounters, in a fight or die situation, a guardian angel Tagas, who reveals her holy origins as one in a long history of demon hunters. She also has her eye on her attractive classmate, Brandon.
Problems arise when Elle finally realizes that life as a hunter is fraught with tragedies and is deeply lonely. Elle is presented with a choice - follow her calling from God as a hunter or live a "normal" life with love. Can Elle tip the scales in favor of what's good or will she become just another casualty in the eternal war between good and evil?
When I read this blurb I was intrigued. the story had a lot of potentials, though I will admit when I saw the time of the audio I was dubious. I was right on both points.
The story does have potential but this is felt like a prologue. We meet Elle as a seventeen-year-old girl. We find out a little about her past then find out there is a deep dark secret she had no way of knowing that changes her life forever. The end is a little sad and leads us into the next book.
so if you like short, twists and demon hunters you will like this. all three books can be listened to in one afternoon.
this is why I love the audio books. The narrator did such a great job and immediately brought me into the story.
