Archangel Uriel is hell bent on revenge on the demon prince Vladek. To get into the prince’s impenetrable fortress, he’ll have to fight in the pits of the underworld. And he’ll need the help of the last person he can trust –– the demon witch Nadya.
There is no way Nadya, who spends her days taking care of others, expected to find Uriel on her doorstep. He seems no happier about being there than she does. But helping him means evening the scales against her backstabbing sister, and she’ll do whatever it takes to make that bitch pay.
Using the fight pit circuits in the demon underworld, Nadya helps Uriel combat his way to the arena at the castle in Russia. Only she isn’t what she seems. As a matter of fact, she may hold the key to his redemption…and to his heart.
After reading (and loving) Darkest Heart and Hardest Fall, I was very happy to see that Uriel got his story in Coldest Fire. As you could have read in Hardest Fall, Uriel was taken captured by a witch and tortured and enslaved. When he got away, he promised he would revenge himself at the witch and the cruel demon prince who captured him, Vladek. But in order to get close to him, he must fight in the pits of hell to get invited into Vladek’s castle. And the only way to be invited to those fights is with the help of Dommiel and Anya (yep, from Darkest Heart). They know a witch, who can help Uriel. But Uriel is wary of witches and he doesn’t trust Nadya. Not even when Dommiel and Anya ensure him that she is not like any other witch. Nadya is living a quiet live, only using her powers to help others. She has escaped a terrible life, which was forced upon her by her sister.
So, not eager to get back into her old life and her old world, she still agrees to help Uriel out as a favor to her friends Dommiel and Anya.
Working side by side to get to Vladek, Uriel realizes that Nadya is nothing like the witches he encountered from Vladek’s entourage. And Nadya discovers there is so much more to Uriel than meets the eye. They will have to learn to trust each other, to make it out alive of Vladek’s castle.
Suspense, plot twists and of course sparks flying between Nadya and Uriel. Another great story from Juliette Cross and I’m looking forward to a new book of series! Five out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
