My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Down & Dirty

A delicious and dark introduction to a new world featuring demons, angels and a pair of dangerous Priests carrying more fire power than Holy Water.

What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

The first time I died was November 1st, 1945. That might’ve been the first time, but it certainly wasn’t the last.

My name is Veil, and my life has been far from normal. Everything I thought I knew about myself had been a lie. Every single thing. Turns out, I had been in the care of a cult dedicated to a King in Hell and fallen archangel.

But after learning the truth of who—or what—I was, I devoted my life to stopping them and everyone like them.

Which is why when I learned that Boston was under siege from an occult society who was slaughtering innocents, I had no choice but to come and stop them. Even if it meant it would take me piece by piece through that past I’d spent seventy years trying to avoid—and right into the presence of the archdemon I’d been running from for so very long. Asmodeus.

Just when I thought things could not get worse, I realized once more that I had no clue what was coming next…

Thoughts on Shadow of Angels


After reading her previous series, which starts with the King of Flames (The Series is called Masks of Under) I fell in LOVE with this author! She has a way of twisting a phrase and whispering a word that quite literally sends shivers over the reader’s soul.

It’s softly seductive and creeping in its darkness… and there is some dark in these pages. A woman with deep secrets and a trapped demon who knows the depths of her lies… it is the beginning of what promises to be yet another epic hit for this talented author.


  • So Very well written.
  • You May have read about angels and demons, but but quite like THIS.
  • Melon… Funny, ugly and perfectly imperfect imp.
  • I understand her view point, I really, really do. What’s real?


  • Cliffhanger… ouch.
  • Very Minor Editing issues, does not detract from the story at all.

My Final Verdict on Shadow of Angels

5 out of 5 Stars

Dark(ish), twisted and even thought provoking, this book asks the reader to embrace the ‘what if’ questions and look deeper, beyond the demons and death, to what may lay just beneath. Starts with a bang, get a touch slow then picks back up. A great introduction – free on Kindle Unlimited.
