    Bored me to tears. Was reading this in prep for the TV show that's supposed to come out. So I wanted to get a feel for the characters. Meh. Lets just say a thing happened (at the 48% mark) and I couldn't give a crap about the book after that. I think I made it to the 60% mark. But page flipping started at the 50% mark I knew it was doomed after that. Shrug.

    Riley Parra is a good cop in a bad city, willing to go places and fight crime when even other good cops would think twice. This lands her in a whole heap of trouble as first angels and then demons appear to help and hinder her in her pursuit of justice.The book is episodic - more a collection of loosely themed short stories than a single unified novel. There are a variety of themes carried throughout the series - faith, hope, love, friendship, and humanity. Each story involves roughly the same set of characters, along with normally a single major life change for Riley, both of which carry through into the subsequent chapters. The characters die or get "put on a bus" with unusual frequency throughout the stories, which can be frustrating as they often abruptly close only semi-developed plot threads. On the other hand, considering each story is so short, Cannon creates a world in which the deaths ensure the emotional stakes are fairly high throughout, while positioning the characters to quickly develop into people we care about. Neither of these are things to sniff at. Technically it is well edited and written, with the quality of the prose etc very high, which is sometimes not a given in an eBook.Overall it is four stars; Riley Parra is a strong, badass heroine for those that like their coffee and their cop fiction bitter.

    This one was a thrilled and great one to read. I really admired Mr. Cannon's ideas of portraying angels are as imperfect and brusque as demons. There was no line of justice between them, the one who won the battles will had a reasonable right to write the history. Moreover, Riley was the most badass, brave, yet fragile heroine of all characters I've ever seen for several ordeals she'd been through her prosy past. And what made me respect her more was she didn't take her guardian duty to protect No Man's Land for granted, not like a stereotype hero in a movie always did to say a cliché line, "I have to save my people or my city", vice-versa, Riley refused it but after a wrestle of her conscience, she decided to fight the demons for her home, her city, and her loved one. Was that so lovely and powerful about her :D? Though the final chapter was sort of rushing and felt a little bit low key to me Ò.Ó I mean, it's tooo shortttt, I wished it could be longer, I'm not prepared myself to say goodbye to this book T^T.... But still, I was very glad I got a chance to read this book and changed my point of view about men's writing LesFic (the love scenes *cough cough* *blush like a tomato*). Thank you, Geonn Cannon, can't wait to read his other books ^....^

    Five starsI was sent this book by Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.This is one of the most interesting, exciting and captivating books I have read in a long time. The readers interest is captivated from the very beginning. The main characters are fascinating and with the introduction of Demons and Angels the book just goes from strength to strength. Just as you begin to question what is happening, is it real? Is it imaginary? Mr Cannon answers your question in the most interesting and dramatic way.The book was also full of humour and superb one liners, I particularly liked the line comparing Shakespeare as "pop culture." I also like the way the book was presented, almost like a set of novels, each with a beginning and an end, but each one leaving you wanting to read the following one.The end was as dramatic as it was unpredictable. I hope Mr Cannon is planning further books in this series.A truly exceptional read.

    No regrets. Season 1 was fantastic! I really enjoyed how the book was formatted, almost like a new story in every chapter yet maintaining the main story- line. Highly recommended and you won't regret buying it. Now onto Season 2 for me!

    Good bookI enjoyed this collecting of stories. They pulled together many different characters and I loved how they all wove together.

    Me gustan este tipo de historias con dosis de oscuridad y donde la imperfección está presente, tramas que se salen de lo común .Me resultó interesante y si bien parte de la trama se puede predecir tiene el mérito de, aún así, mantener mi interés hasta el final.Logró lo que otras historias de ángeles y demonios no habían podido. Ahora voy por el siguiente a ver si logra que lo lea con el mismo interés que me despertó este.

    Well, I guessed a part of the end, not all. Which it is great news because I'm difficult to entangle...Really like me, except for the part of sex are all equal in the books, so. I will continue reading, of course, want to see how the story goes. I want to see more of Riley, and demons, and all this... things.

    This book is amazing. Action, violence, blood, gore, reigion, faith, sex, love, intrigue and so much more all wrapped up in a nice little book. Loved it, can't wait to read the sequels
