Book Impressions - His Work to See by

His Work to see is an excellent short story about a forbidden love affair between an angel and a demon. They believe they have kept the affair secret, but the higher powers for Heaven and Hell decide to make an example of them so that it will not occur again.

I enjoyed reading this a lot, despite being so short iis a satisfying read by managing to encapsulate the story and still hinting at a wider world without feeling that you've missed something. I will definetly be checking out the other releases around these two characters.

It is very well written with economical style that pulls you through the story. I especially liked the tactic the demon uses, but I won't spoil it for you :-) Overall this is an excellent read, highly recommended.


 
 
The game is ancient, played out in cities and towns across the world. The players are powerful beyond measure, and their champions and foot soldiers battle in perpetuity. There are over seven billion prizes to be won, each precious beyond measure. They are the souls of every man, woman, and child on earth, and both sides will stop at nothing to claim them.

Pandora and Ambrose are opposites in the Greatest War, an angel and a demon, combatants locked in a furious struggle for the people of a single city. There are rules of engagement, long established. There are eternal principles, that none would think to break. Each is destined to despise the other, and their mutual hatred is written into the DNA of the Universe.

They shouldn’t have been able to fall in love.

Now Heaven and Hell are hunting them. Nobody on Earth can help them. To survive, they must face the most terrifying champions their superiors can muster, and the consequences of failure are beyond imagining.
