The synopsis: Suffering is worst when you’re doing it alone. But Emma’s taking Hell like an angel—even though her languishing began with having her seraph wings torn from her back. Now her worst enemy lords his body and his evil desires over her while she tries desperately to remember the words to her favorite prayer.
As Devil, Jack used to have Hell and its women humming like well-oiled machines. Too bad he’s nowhere near the place now. Stuck on Earth as a human, he must work with a ragtag team of exiled minions and half-breeds to save the angel who’s become all that matters.
Rescuing a seraph is the plan, but breaking into Hell means letting evil things out. Once they collide, minions and angels converge in the battle of the ages: good versus evil. But which side is which? Will Jack destroy the world as he fights to save Emma, his true and timeless love, from a damnation he designed?
An action-packed sequel to Crushed Seraphim, this tale reveals—time and again—what happens when the heart’s deepest desires break free. With a story both sizzling and sensual, emotional and enigmatic, Debra Anastasia invites readers to join a battle with nothing less than love on the line.
My review: I read Crushed Seraphim over a year ago, so I was very happy to finally be reading the sequel, Bittersweet Seraphim. There are new characters to meet and get to know, and Debra does a really good job of interweaving the old with the new. There are sub-stories within the main story that are exciting and fresh. Action and romance combine with humor and drama to make a story that will keep you turning the pages to find out what happens and to whom.
Of course my favorite is back in action…Satan Jack, and he’s just as good as I remember if not better. This time around he’s human though. Emma, the angel who was willing to sacrifice herself for Jack is stuck in hell and it’s up to Jack and the 3 siblings from the first book to figure out how to save her, as well as themselves once the story really gets going.
My emotions were all over the place throughout my reading…happy, sad, pissed, anxious…and of course there are several scenes that get the blood moving in a… erm…good way 😉 I love it when authors can do that to me. The more emotions they solicit the better I like it. There’s some heart stopping moments especially towards the end of the book…I won’t say more than that because I want you guys to read it yourself, but Debra had me saying bad words peeps 😉
The overriding message in Bittersweet Seraphim is the one I like best. Love heals and transforms. Love is miraculous, and that for me is the most beautiful thing any author can choose to write about. I hope you’ll read and enjoy this book as much as I did.
My rating for Bittersweet Seraphim by Debra Anastasia:
A very happy 4.
