Blurb: In the past, the children of angels and humans, the Nephilim, were allowed to lead their lives as they willed. But they proved too strong, too ambitious, and too cunning for their own good. They became warlords, conquerors and emperors. They caused war and strife until the Throne stepped in and forced them to submit to Its will, or die.
Unlike most of her fellows, Del, one of the first Nephilim, had no interest in conquest and domination. In the ancient past, prior to the Throne's interdiction, she met and fell in love with Dami, a Mediterranean ship captain and trader. Together, they face down pirates and storms and try to create a future together.
In the present, Del unwillingly works for the Throne, obeying the commands of the angel Ahadiel. She helps to keep the world safe from the horrors of escaped demons. At the same time, she keeps herself in the Throne's good graces. Whenever a rogue demon breaks free from Hell, she and her partner, Marrin, another Nephilim, work together to banish it.
Thrilling danger, fast-paced adventure, high-seas action, and heart-warming romance fill this novel, with a page-turning story that won't let you put it down.

My Rating: 4
Angels and pirates sounds like a baseball game. But it is a really different and interesting story that takes place in the past, and also in the present. Del is a half breed angel/human and she hunts rogues. Rogues are angels who have decided they wanted to be worshiped so they seek power over humans. In the present day Del has a new partner, Marrin, and they are looking into the disappearance of foster children while at the same time slaying rogues who maybe involved. In the past Del is a slave and a ship's captain, Dami, buys her only because he wanted to give her, her freedom. But when they are attacked by pirates he learns that Del could have left whenever she wanted when she killed all the pirates while still in chains. Del and Dami both feel powerful feeling for each other almost at first sight.

This book goes back and forwards in the past and present with each chapter but it's not hard to keep the story line separated.
