"Pledge absolute devotion to me and I promise you the key to the universe."
Empowered by Mithra and aided by Urvashi – a fallen angel – Ashley must embrace her destiny as the gatekeeper before Mithra's enemies take control of her and the gate. Many factions vie for access, but Mithra vows to protect Ashley at any cost, even if it means a war between worlds.
"I once believed demons were a psychosis of the mind. Now I see they walk and talk, bearing wings of polished steel dipped in the blood of sinners."
Greco Roman gods and demonic creatures collide in this mythical fantasy and scifi romance series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Travis Luedke.
Join Ashley for an insane dark fantasy thrill ride to the Vatican secret archives and the underworld of the Necropolis to find a doorway to the universe UPON THIS ROCK.
I really have to give Luedke credit for how creative he's gotten with his writing. The sheer expanse and detail has been absolutely fantastic, what's better are the cameo's we get.
Its brilliance to bring in favorites into new installments because we already have a cast and author that we love and now we get a new complex world with that added bonus.
I can't even sum up the size of genre cross and mix of players because Luedke opens a box of characters that keep you guessing and investing from beginning to end.
I wish I could put into words just how much I'm loving the start of this series and honestly wish it had been longer because -gr... cliffhanger/hangover. I want more.
The whole can you trust the unknown and jump without the assurance of a safety net into the relationships both in friendships and intimate involvements pays off in a big way.
You don't have to pick up the previous books to understand involvements because Luedke makes it easy for new readers to his books to find their way but I would totally recommend you do because his works are fantastic to fall in love with.
