Publication Date: January 10th, 2013
Publisher: self-pub
Being the daughter of Lucifer keeps seventeen year old Dawn Belial busy. For almost her entire lifetime, she has been trying to think of a way to free her Archangel mother, Michaela, whom her father has held captive for centuries. She's also attending high school - balancing trigonometry, history, and recruiting souls for her father along with her wicked half-sister, Venus.

There has been no time for love until she meets mysterious Gabriel, a British exchange student. As they fall in love against their will, she discovers a startling secret about him, and a shocking connection to her mother that changes everything.

My Review:

Dawn is the daughter of Lucifer. She and her half sister Venus collect souls for their father’s army. Dawn is different though. She is part fallen angel and part Archangel. She doesn’t want to do bad things, but she does it for her father. When she meets the mysterious Gabriel, she starts to slip on her duties and slips into love. But does she really know Gabriel? She knows a human shouldn’t affect her the way he does. What’s a girl to do when she just wants to save her mom and be with Gabriel?

It will be the hardest decision she will ever make.

The beginning of the book had me really confused. I had no idea who was speaking and what was going on. I had to re-read the first couple of pages. Once I got a hang of how she was writing, everything just flowed smoothly. I finished the book faster than I thought. I was entranced by dawn. She is part fallen and part Archangel and the sides were always fighting for control. One minute she was sweet and the next she is trying to burn down everything. And her sister Venus didn’t help, but she is a succubus and her mother is Lillith. I’ve never really read a book with Lucifer in it before and I liked how the author portrayed him in the book. He was just a normal guy like you and I…..beside that he is evil. There were a lot of different types of angels in the books and a lot of interesting characters. This book was unique in its on way. I can’t wait to see what happens to Dawn and maybe we will see a side of her we haven’t seen. :D

Dawn: She is torn. She wants to be good, but her father wants her to be bad. You can tell that she wants to do good things, but every time she does, it has a way of blowing up in her face. I want to see more of her powers in the next one and maybe she will accept who she is.

Venus: Well she is a succubus and is used to getting what she wants. So you know she is livid when the two guys she wants, want nothing to do with her. There was only one part of the book where I thought she was actually nice, but she ruined it shortly after. Bad is just in her DNA.

Gabriel: Throughout the book he would go hot and cold towards Dawn. He would want Dawn and then he didn’t. He had his reasons and if I say anymore I will spoil the book. As far as a guy goes though, he was alright. I still need to learn a little bit more about him before I make my decision.

4.5 STARS!!!

Book Trailer:


Author of debut young adult novel, The Morning Star. Currently working on the sequel, Equinox, as well as a chick-lit, rom-com, slightly sleazy and funny story with a twist, Catching Frogs. And, because I'm loco in the roco, I've got about 12 more on the back burner. When I'm not writing I can be found kayaking, hiking, ninja-training, traveling, and taking a ferry over to the San Juan Islands to search for the elusive creature known as the "Orca." I also am constantly adding ridiculous wants, needs, must-see's and do's to my ever expanding bucket book. 

I covet a delicious malbec with a rare steak and make a killer salsa.
