Check, check, check, check…That’s all my life is. There’s nothing ordinary about me. I’m “special.” I know this because I’m reminded of it every stinking day. I can kick a Daemon’s ass with both hands tied behind my back. I can run up a mountain without breaking a sweat. Know what I can’t do? Get guys to notice me, or hang out with friends like normal people do. I can’t just be ordinary because I have an Arch Angel for a mentor who is always breathing down my neck, and a family of angelic Guides and Protectors who scrutinize every little thing I do. Just for a day I want a life where I’m no longer some anomaly, where I don’t have to feel like a lab rat.

And then I met Emrys. Okay, so my mentor and family hate him, but probably for good reason. After-all, he is a Soul Trader, and they aren’t the most trust worthy beings. But, he is sooo hot with his green eyes, leather jacket and the sexiest tattoo you’ve ever seen running down his back. And-he doesn’t treat me like a project.

I’ve got myself in quite a little quandary here. Choosing between my responsibilities and the Trader that holds my heart is something I didn’t sign up for. Torn between two different worlds, I must now decide who to trust and who to walk away from. What’s a girl to do? See what I mean? I am an anomaly. I am Jordyn.


This wonderful spinoff novel really had me on pins and needles as I read.  It picks up a few years after the conclusion of the phenomenal Saving Angels series, and I was a complete fan girl stalker when I found out that King was working on a spinoff series!!  I absolutely adore the Saving Angels novels and couldn’t wait for this one to come out. And, I certainly wasn’t disappointed!  King has written another masterpiece, just like every other novel that came before it, and I am in absolute awe of her sheer writing abilities!

Truth be told, I wasn’t a real fan of Jordyn (the character) in the beginning… her lack of ability to follow the rules drove me a bit crazy, and her extreme cockiness and disregard for her family’s feelings really made me livid.  And yet, she’s completely and one hundred percent real.  Her thoughts and feelings, especially as the odd one out in a family of daemon killers, make complete and utter sense, and it is no wonder she falls for Emrys so quickly as he offers her a world of freedom, something she has yet to experience in her own niche with aunt and uncle.

And Emrys? He’s perfect.  If I were to have a book boyfriend, it’d definitely be him!  First of all, he has an s on the end of his name, which is something I’ve loved ever since I was in high school myself, though I very rarely meet someone with a plural name.  And second, he embodies the lovely bad boy image with his tattoos, leather jacket, and nonchalant attitude, making him my very own dream come true.  Let’s just say that he sets sparks flying as he enters the scene, and I adore him, just like Jordyn does.

Kings story flows seamlessly, taking readers along for the ride as Jordyn discovers her wants, needs, and abilities when it comes to love, daemons, and the truth about her past.  I was pleasantly surprised by the twist at the end of the novel, and I’m already dying for the next installment.  Five stars.
