World War II veteran Peter Blackstone traded his soul so that his wife could live. That was 1945. Since then, Peter has lived an unnaturally long life as a hired killer, providing the life forces upon which Jerahmeel feeds to survive.
Doctor Allison La Croix has a big problem. She randomly sees people’s deaths. She has longed to be free of her twisted “gift” to live a normal life without fear of predicting yet another loved one’s demise.
After a horrific accident, a severely injured Peter arrives in Allison’s ER. The vision Allison experiences when she touches him nearly kills her. He teaches her to block these devastating episodes as she finds a way to unlock his forgotten, passionate soul.
But Jerahmeel’s minion has orders to destroy Peter and anyone he loves. Will Peter’s and Allison’s shattered souls survive the devious plan? Or could their love save them both? Someone will have hell to pay.
My Thoughts - Story
Wow…just wow! I am in shock with how much I enjoyed this book. It totally took me off guard because by reading the synopsis – I honestly didn’t think I was going to like it.
The writing is fantastic – and the way Ms. David uses descriptive information, I felt I was playing the movie out in my head. I could see the characters, the scenery and everything else that was going on.
I instantly connected with Allison and loved her character the most. That little spitfire was a hero in my book. Now, Peter I had to warm up to him but once he chilled out…he had a spot in my heart. I also loved the secondary characters and can’t wait for Dante’s book.
For this being a debut book – my hat goes off to Ms. David!
Allison has the ability to see a person’s death and it happens quickly after. Is this a curse or a gift? Living with this curse, Allison tries her best to control it until she meets Peter. The mysterious patient who came in and healed quickly.
Peter has sold his soul to the devil and is his minion in killing criminals to feed energy to the big ole’ skeezy Satan. He is bound to hell until he has his Meaningful Kill. In constant turmoil over what he has to do, Allison seems to be the only one who calms him.
These two must work together if they want a future together.
