Nothing could make her underestimate herself until she's sent to hunt down Death, one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. Or as Violet knows him--Lucas Cross, her ex-mentor and ex-lover. Defining the line between what her job requires and what her heart wants is the hardest decision she's ever had to make.
Lucas Cross is an angel turned demon.
The only thing he had to worry about was helping his brothers end the world, that was until Violet blew into town. From the moment he saw her again his normal self has fought hard to keep down the demon that desperately wants to kill her. Torn between love and hate, Lucas is determined to push all of Violet's limits.
The feud between the Never Dark realm and The Underworld is at boiling point and if Violet can't complete her mission Earth will pay the ultimate price.
“You have until sunrise to leave Earth or I will come back and kill you.”
Dark Wings is ridiculously sexy and provocative.
Violet is a kick ass angel who has killed ninety-nine demons and she is looking for her one hundredth kill. The lucky one just so happens to be her ex-lover, Lucas. And like the book, he’s also ridiculously sexy and provocative. It turns out Violet knew what she was doing and knew who she was going to kill before hand. The girl wants closure. Wouldn’t you if the love of your life turned to the dark side and became the very thing that you are destined to kill?
“I just went head to head with my friend, my mentor, and the love of my life-my heart hurt a lot more than any physical injury I’d sustained.” -V
I immensely enjoyed reading all that sexual tension and the love/hate relationship that Lucas and Violet seemed to share. It made the story interesting. I can’t tell you how many times I giggled like a little school girl due to the conversations being witty.
Demons are ranked by damage they do, there are five different categories:
Category 1- The Banshee, Tracker Demons, Seers, and other demons that blend in with society. They are allowed to walk earth freely just as long as they don’t kill anybody.
Category 2- Succubi and Incubi. These demons stick to the sex industry.
Category 3- vampires(no longer exist), werewolves and shards. Shards are a catlike demon that preys on wild animals and sometimes humans.
Category 4- fallen angels and human-like demons.
Category 5- THE WORST. Can’t appear on earth without causing mass destruction and death. Skatters(gimp-like creature sent into a frenzy by a rapidly beating heart), necromancers, the four horsemen of the apocalypse, and the Underworld Council.
Can you take a wild guess which one Lucas falls under?
He is Death and he has come to destroy the world!
“I was no longer her mentor, her lover, or the angel protecting Earth and killing demons. I was lost-gone forever.” –Lucas
Lucas and Violet definitely struggled with wanting to kill each other yet wanting to have sex everytime they got around one another. The chemistry was outta this world…no pun intended. I wish to have had read some more flashbacks with them as student/teacher. The love between them was undeniable from the flashbacks we did get.
“If I could change things, I would’ve been more professional when I was training you. I would have tried harder not to fall in love with you. You don’t deserve this.”-Lucas
This is a must read for UF/paranormal romance lovers. Lucas is a bad boy worth loving and Violet is an independent bad ass.
