This was just an OK 1st book to start a series. Poor Allegra "Allie" starts off by tripping in her new shoes and falling in front of a bus and is technically killed. Raziel a fallen angel is sent to deliver her to her final destination, but when he discovers he is delivering her to the gates of hell he pulls her back at the last minute endangering his life by taking on the fire. She then saves him from the Nephilim who are like flesh eating zombies and he accidently bonds with her by sharing breath. I think my struggle within book is that the chemistry is pretty non-existent between the two and most of the book is them fighting what is pulling them together until it's almost too late when the real battle for Sheol and their existence is threatened by a traitor and a new destiny is created. A little disappointed after such a hawt little cover and my weekly pondering, not sure if I'll jump to continue this series.
