Synopsis: Evangeline Lawson can find anything, except freedom. A descendant of St. Anthony of Padua, the Patron Saint of lost articles, she has the supernatural ability to locate any missing object, car keys, missing dogs, children, as well as nuclear missiles, secret underground bunkers, and divine objects of power. The only thing she can’t find is freedom from every power-hungry treasure hunter.
Breadcrumbs left by her ancestors lead Evangeline to the doorstep of the world’s most morally ambiguous angel, Adrien. Sure he can protect her, but he can also use her to find his way back into heaven. The angel will use any means possible to force Evangeline to stop running and strengthen her abilities.
Abilities that Evangeline will need to fight the oldest and most powerful of demons. Lilith has been hunting the St. Anthony lineage for hundreds of years and will stop at nothing to turn Evangeline into her own personal divining rod. She needs Evangeline’s supercharged GPS to find artifacts that can unleash hell on earth.
Evangeline swings like a pendulum. Run and hide or fight? Where she stops could determine the fate of mankind.
Addictive. Compulsive, and heart pounding! Demon, Interrupted is a wild ride full of darkness and surprising twists!
This one was edgy and intriguing! It felt like Supernatural, minus Sam and Dean. I loved it!
The pacing ranged from moderate to fast. It started off mild and picked up with intensity as the story moved. I really enjoyed it because there was never a dull moment, and it always felt like something was happening.
There were plenty of surprising twists too! The plot took turns I could not have predicted. Though there was a small amount of predictability, there were plenty of shocking moments that kept me on the edge of my seat!
I loved the idea behind the story involving the angels and demons. I really enjoyed the idea of having descendants of saints with unique abilities. And, I especially loved the interesting bits thrown in regarding science, eye color, and will power. A lot of imagination and detail went in to the world building!
Evangeline was an interesting main character, too. I loved how her story progressed and her abilities changed to match what was happening to her. She started off being a slightly weak, “young adult” sort of character, and progressed to a powerful bad ass. I enjoyed the twins, Elan and Suvan, and their comic relief in the story, and I enjoyed the mystery and seduction of Adrien.
It wasn’t too heavy with religion, which I loved. It had a bit of a YA feel, but had enough mature content to make it alluring. And, it was packed with originality and intrigue. I would definitely recommend it if you enjoy stories with some Catholic mythology and plenty of excitement! 4.5 stars (or 5 mermaids because I don’t think an Angel could put a mermaid back together.
Thank you to the author for sending me this free copy in exchange for my honest review!
