Book Description:Book Description
When archaeologist Chloe Broussard accepts the contract to lead a dig in Ornes, France, she has no idea she will uncover the Veil of Veronica. When she does, she discovers a danger far greater than the demons she's confronted since childhood. Azazel wants her, as well as the Veronica, and his chosen minion is her brother. Her hope lies with immortal Templar Knight Lucan. Her life depends on oaths she knows nothing about.
For countless centuries, Lucan of Seacourt has lived with the knowledge that his brother killed their family. Now, as Azazel's darkness eats away at his soul, old betrayal stirs suspicion. He trusts no one. Not even the seraph who can heal his dying spirit.
With the fate of the Almighty hanging in the balance, Lucan must find faith in something more terrifying than the dark lord's creations. He must learn to believe his heart.
Lucan of Seacourt is on a mission to find his Seraph. Chloe Broussard is a woman who likes to dig around old places. She’s a woman that seems to be in her own little world – when it comes to artifacts. She doesn’t seem to realize that people may want to talk to her. I find myself wondering, as the story progresses, what type of research Claire had to go through in order to be accurate when talking about dig sites and archaeology.
This is a book that has you so caught up in the history of their findings. It made me wish that I was part of the discovery. Can you imagine being a part of an unveiling of things that existed long before any of us were ever born? How fragile some of those things must be and how they came to be buried.
This is a series that I have been glad that it is part of my library. I get so involved with Claire’s characters that everything else just seems to disappear. I always have a hard time putting it down – I keep telling myself “just one more page.”
This book can be read on its own but if you want to stay true to the series, please make sure to read the first two books. If you go to her web site, http://www.claireashgrove.com/index.asp, you will find out that she also has an e-book companion novella titled Immortal Protector that will be out on March 12. If you like this series as much as I do, you may want to also read this novella before her next book makes its appearance. (Reviewed by Lynn from Romance Reader Enthusiast)
