About the Book

The Four Brothers are coming, and this time it isn’t just Milayna’s life in jeopardy, but her brother’s, too.

A year ago, eighteen year-old Milayna fought Azazel, Hell’s angel, for her soul. She thought she’d seen the last of him, but he’s back, and he’s brought his friends with him. The Four Brothers want Milayna’s life, and they have wicked powers to use to take it.

While Milayna struggles against the Four Brothers, she also has to fight Azazel for her younger brother’s soul. Ben is at a crucial point in his life—a time when he is weakest to Azazel and his powers. Milayna has to shield her brother from Azazel until Ben reaches the age of accountability and enters a period of safety from Azazel and his soul-sucking demons.

As if having four demon brothers out to end her life and Hell’s angel out to steal her brother’s soul wasn’t enough, Milayna is still reeling from the disappearance of Chay. Can she find him in time to save their relationship? Or will the constant struggle with Hell and all its evil send her seeking comfort in the arms of Xavier?

Violence
5

This is a book about a war between angels and demons being fought amongst humans. Milayna has visions which include various degrees of violence including death. Although there is less actual violence described in this book there are some disturbing scenes including things such as water torture. Characters are murdered, some in more detail than others.

Language
5

Several uses of the word b*&$^ in various ways. D*$&, as in all the * time, Pissed - as in angry. Hell - as in it scares the hell out of me.

Romance/Sensuality
4

This definitely has the most romantic content of the trilogy. There is a fair amount of romantic angst between 3 characters. At several points the possibility of sex is mentioned (although it never goes beyond mentioning it mainly due to interruptions).

Drugs/Alcohol/Smoking
3

Supernatural Characters: angels, demons, demi-angels, demi-demons, hobgoblins

Other: This is the third book in the Milayna series and generally is about the same content wise as previous installments. This is a little heavier on the romance than the previous installment but a little lighter on the violence. Demons and Angels are described as if they were humans and the romances read as if they were regular teenagers.

About the Author
Michelle K. Pickett

I'm an award-winning YA and NA author... but, really? I'm just the wife of an amazing man, mom of four awesome kids, a reader of words, and writer of stories. I love candles and books, think garden gnomes are creepy and M&Ms are the perfect food (especially peanut butter). I live and write in North Carolina, but was raised in Flint, Michigan and will always think of the Great Lakes state as home.

I love to hear from readers, bloggers, and other authors. Check out my website: michelle-pickett.com and drop me a note.
