The way Shannon K Brown paints a picture by describing the sights, and feelings of the things happening to Luna is AMAZING!!!! I can really feel like I’m right there. I really like the struggle between Bane and Ashmodai for Luna’s soul. To me it really hits home with the struggle between good and evil that live in us all.

Especially since he and his brothers are bound to The Coven of Hallows and the only way they can escape them is if the Lanchester blood runs dry. I just so happen to be Luna Lanchester, the last of my bloodline. And this kind of puts me in a predicament. Four immortal demons want me dead. This puts Bane in a predicament too. He has a decision to make. He can deny his love for me, murder me and be free from The Coven, or he can protect me from his hellish brothers, be forever bound to the coven, and suffer his father’s wrath. Because of the blood-tie that enables Lucifer’s sons to have access to my mind, I am about to be attacked from within by some pretty malevolent forces. The entire Coven of Hallows wants my blood. Not to mention, Rune, Bane’s sadistic brother, has made a horrible fetish of biting me. But I am not afraid (insert mental eye-roll), for I am a warrior. A descendent of the most fearsome warriors this earth has ever seen. I will kick all their evil butts!At least, that’s my plan, anyway
