Jesse Eldridge and Gabriel Walsh have their work cut out for them the moment they step foot into Gabriel's home world of Abaddon. With the elemental ice mage Lazarus and his demon lover Semoriel, they uncover the unthinkable: a plot to overthrow the throne of Abaddon itself. When they discover what has become of the archdemon Ba'al, treason and betrayal soon rear their ugly heads. One of the four isn't quite who he seems, and it's going to change everyone's life when the truth comes out.
A demon, a mage, and a human went into the gates of Abaddon. Sounds like a joke? It’s not. It’s the gripping introduction to Spirits of Abaddon: Sanctified and let me tell you, when you start this book, you won’t want to put it down.
First off, I love Mychael Black’s books. I’m hooked. When I saw Sanctified came out, I had to grab a copy. I’m so glad I did. The end of the previous book had a cliffhanger in it and I needed to find out what happened next.
From the start, I loved Jesse and Gabriel. Gabriel comes off as gruff and a tad harsh, but it works. He’s a demon. But when he’s with Jesse, he becomes more—the gentle giant he might have been if human. And Jesse? Poor guy got a real shock at the end of the prior book, but I love how he took his change with grace and acceptance. Plus, he’s not hard on the eyes at all.
When I cracked this book, I knew I’d be in for a treat, but goodness. The action really never stopped and I caught myself holding my breath. Just when I thought the plot would go one way, it went the total opposite and it worked so well. And the ending! It was just as it needed to be and couldn’t have been better or unexpected.
If you want a story with steamy sex, horny demons, and plot twists galore, then you need to read Sanctified. I give it 5 cherries and can’t wait for the next installment.
