Summary

The war between good and evil has raged for millennia, but now evil is winning, and the Marked Souls are caught in the middle.

Liam Niall never wanted to be a leader, but after surviving the horrors of the Irish potato famine, he found himself possessed by a demon in search of redemption. Now, he heads the Chicago talyan in their fight against evil, though he grows weary and plagued by self-doubt.

Then he meets Jilly Chan. She's a mentor to local homeless youth and waging a one-woman war against the drug-dealing slime that preys upon her charges. She's already half-taken by a demon, so Liam reluctantly tries to guide her into full power. Even as the proudly independent Jilly struggles to remain true to her own soul, Liam's fiercely passionate touch soon leaves a mark of desire on her flesh as enduring as her new demon tattoo.

On the fence..

I've listened to both books by Jessa Slade and would recommend them if you're willing to listen intently. I recently listened to these for a second time and guess after a year of listening to Showalter, Moning and Feehan books, these just don't compare. They aren't horrible and I don't regret the purchases. I think my biggest problem is the narrators incorrect inflection and speed throughout the books.

Repeat

I have to double check when I was reading or listening to the book because it sounded almost like the same book except for a different background it appeared to be a repeat of the same one just not sure how to explain it but both of the new characters seem to have the same personality as the old one and spoiler somebody had to die just like the first one
I usually finish a series whether it’s good or bad but I think this time I’ll pass on it

Not worth the credit

Not sure if it's the writing or the narrator. I thought I mistakingly purchased a childrens book again. Could not follow along at all!
