Description:

Eden Daylesford is a sixteen year old Nephilim girl stuck smack bang in the middle of a war between angels and demons. And the bad thing is that she shares both of their blood. When her mother takes her to the Michaelite Sanctuary in London to try to get rid of the deadly trait that has started to appear – one that hasn’t been seen in a long time – it could stop Eden from forming any sort of relationship with anyone, including the tempting Asher. Eden has no idea just how powerful she is…

Will she learn to embrace her new ability and accept her new role, or go back to her old life of an ordinary human teenager?

Will she be tempted?

The enticing first book in the spin off novella series to The Legend of the Archangel. Set after events in The Chronicles of Fire and Ice

My Thoughts: 

Eden has problems boy does she have problems.  When she discovers that her trait can literally kill people her mother drags her to a monastery.   Hoping this will help training Eden to be a nun, but Eden has other ideas and one of them is a cute boy named Asher.  But can she really be with a boy when she can easily kill him?

I loved this book it was told from two points of view Eden's and Asher's.  Eden has all sorts of issues I guess that is what happens when you dad is a big bad, and as much as Eden's mother wants her safe nothing can seem to keep Eden from her destiny.  

Then we meet Asher who loves everything about Eden from her beauty to her thoughts.  Unfortunately when the girl you love can kill you well how can you be together?  That is the messy part of this book but I loved it all the same.  

I can't wait to see what L.L. Hunter weaves for us next.  This book reminds me of authors like Aimee Carter's Goddess series.  If people like The Goddess Test Series or The Iron Fey series they will love this.  L.L. Hunters writing draws you in and wants you having more and had me hooked and left hanging to see what happens next!! INCREDIBLE, ENGAGING & ADDICTING!!
