Dangerous secrets and forbidden desires lead to shocking consequences…

Half-angel Trinity and her bonded gargoyle protector, Zayne, have been working with demons to stop the apocalypse while avoiding falling in love. The Harbinger is coming…but who or what is it? All of humankind may fall if Trinity and Zayne can’t win the race against time as dark forces gather.

As tensions rise, they must stay close together and patrol the DC streets at night, seeking signs of the Harbinger, an entity that is killing Wardens and demons with no seeming rhyme or reason. Forbidden to be with each other, Zayne and Trinity fight their feelings and turn to unusual sources for help—the demon Roth and his cohorts. But as deaths pile up and they uncover a sinister plot involving the local high school and endangering someone dear to Zayne, Trin realizes she is being led…herded…played for some unknown end. As anger builds and feelings spiral out of control, it becomes clear that rage may be the ruin of them all.

I feel like I sound like a broken record but I really do love this book. Or should I say, anything Jen writes? lol and I love book 1 but book 2, man it wrecked me!!!

Book 2 picks up where book 1 left off. Trin and Zayne have to navigate through some emotional dark water. There were so many parts where my heart was just pounding and some parts where I was giddy like little girl with a crush.

And through all of that, Trin was also learning about her gifts and working on not being too proud to ask for help when she needed it.

I love seeing Roth befriend Trin, I mean we already know he has a bromance going on with Zayne, so it was nice to see Trin have someone besides Zayne to sort of hang out with.

Warning: be ready for an emotional rollercoaster and even bigger emotional cliffhanger ending.
