There is only one path.
Born mortal along with his three brothers, Michael is an Archangel with a specific role: hunt fallen angels and send them back to Hell. He is determined in his mission, never straying from his appointed path, until he meets Lake Divine, and discovers there may be more to his beliefs than blind duty.
But Lake is not who he seems. Offspring of a human and a fallen angel, a Nephilim, Lake must choose his own destiny: give in to the coldness and embrace the dark, or seek the light and rise above the sins of his father.
Two paths lay before them, but only one has the potential to destroy them both.

My Review of this Book
Genre: New Adult Urban Fantasy/LGBT
Michael learns at age 16, that he is the reincarnation of the Archangel Michael and that his best friends, (they were born minutes apart) are also Archangels. The four of them, Zadekiel (Zade), Jophiel (Joe) and Gabriel (Gabe) and Michael (Mike) have been assigned to seek out escaped, fallen angels and their earthly offspring and send them back to Hell.
They do get some heavenly help for this mission. There is a twist to this plot when Michael meets 17 year old Lake. Lake grew up with a less than ideal mother, the victim of bullies and other nasty encounters.
Reader, do be aware that this book contains scenes of a sexual nature between males, some consensual, some not. Note the LGBT addition to the genre.
I liked the author’s character development, especially of Michael, Lake, and Lake’s mother. They evoked my emotions and had me cheering for Lake, the underdog.
The storyline had nice flow and was easy to follow.
I enjoyed this book and would heartily recommend it. 4.5 Stars!
An Interview with the character, Michael
1––Let’s start with the basics. Tell us a bit about yourself and what makes you tick.
Michael: I am a reincarnated archangel. It’s my duty to find fallen angels and send them back to hell. There’s not much more to my life than that.
2––Do you have any hobbies, favorite TV shows, books? Anything you fangirl/boy over?
Michael: I suppose I’d sound like a religious fanatic if I said the Bible. It’s not my favorite book anyways. When I was younger I was a big fan of The Hobbit. Always imagined going on an adventure. Which I am on now. There’s no dragon at the end of this journey though and I’m not sure it will ever end.
3––What is one thing from your past you’re most proud of?
Michael: There isn’t one thing I can specify. My past is full of few regrets and lots of happy memories.
4––Let’s play favorites:
Pepsi or Coke?
Michael: Coke. Fizz lasts longer.
Pie or Cake?
Michael: Cake. Got some?
White or dark chocolate?
Michael: Dark. Mmmm.
Playstation 4 or Xbox 1or WiiU?
Michael: Haven’t played any of those. Too busy hunting fallen angels.
Paperback book or ebook?
Michael: I prefer the feel of a real book in my hands.
Summer or winter?
Michael: Summer. The grass, the flowers, it reminds me of Heaven.
Puppies or kittens?
Michael: How can you chose? They’re both cute and cuddly.
Vampires or werewolves?
Michael: Werewolves. They seem the lesser of the two evils.
