BLURB: His name is Koldo. He is scarred, powerful, his control legendary-and he lives only for vengeance, determined to punish the angel who viciously removed his wings. But if he yields to the forces of hatred, he will be kicked from the  heavens, eternally damned. 
She is his last hope. Nicola Lane was born with a defective heart, yet this fragile human shows surprising strength as demons stalk her every move, determined to end her. She is the key to Koldo's deliverance...and his downfall. Though he fights duty, destiny and his first addictive taste of desire, his toughest battle will be the one for Nicola's life-even if he has to sacrifice his own.... 

LT & WENDY’S REVIEW: Koldo is ravaged by hate due to being betrayed by his own mother, when he was only 7 years old. This half angel, half Nefa demon soul is suffering from the abuse of cutting off his wings by his mother. It was a cruel act of hate that had her removing his wings. Many years later, he has now gotten a bit of revenge on her and has her locked away in a cage he made himself.  While being a part of an angelic army that's on the verge of falling, he sacrifices his long beautiful hair to save a friend. Koldo doesn't have many friends so when one is in need he does what he has to do without any thought to himself. Nicola and her sister, both humans, are tormented by demons daily. Nicola's sister has gotten so sick from the constant demon attack on her body that she is in a coma. While searching the hospital for demons, Koldo sees Nicola and knows he has to have her but feels like he does not deserve her or any happiness that will come with being with her. He takes on the responsibility of protecting her from the demons surrounding her and actually let's himself be seen by the human. Nicola has to agree to do whatever Koldo says in the agreement she makes with him for his help in saving her sister, but she warms his heart to  new emotions he thought he would never feel again.My Rating: 4
I do have to say on a side note- I love the Lords of the Underworld series but this one left me a little flat. I want the steam and love between the two main characters not a full on religious awakening with a "new" understanding of love- I read books for the sex appeal between characters and I just did not feel it in this book *wendy*
