Zhubaal, fallen angel assistant to the Grim Reaper, has spent decades searching for the angel he loved and lost nearly a century ago. Not even her death can keep him from trying to find her, not when he knows she’s been given a second chance at life in a new body. But as time passes, he’s losing hope, and he wonders how much longer he can hold to the oath he swore to her so long ago…
As an emim, the wingless offspring of two fallen angels, Vex has always felt like a second-class citizen. But if she manages to secure a deal with the Grim Reaper — by any means necessary — she will have earned her place in the world. The only obstacle in the way of her plan is a sexy hardass called Z, who seems determined to thwart her at every turn. Soon it becomes clear that they have a powerful connection rooted in the past…but can any vow stand the test of time?
I obviously have some catching up to do. Which probably comes as no surprise since I just finished Sin Undone a couple of weeks ago. *sigh* I haven’t read many of the novellas in this world, but reading Z proved that that needs to be rectified sooner rather than later.
I really liked this one… Zhubaal and Vex’s relationship had more than a few minor complications. (Yes, that’s putting it mildly.) I have to admit, I figured out what was going on way before they did, but that’s okay, because there was more than one big reveal in Z. 😉
Speaking of which, I loved the cameos and mentions of previous characters. It was nice checking in on them. The neat little twist at the end was priceless and made me smile just thinking about how that might play out. Meanwhile, I have some serious back-reading to do. *runs off to search for more Demonica/Lords of Deliverance extras*
