When teens go missing in Hawaii, a group of demon-hunters—half human and half angel—disguised as high school students, must leave Crossroads, the place where they reside. In a race against time, they uncover the mystery connecting the missing teens, which dates back to the era of the Knights Templar. However, when they discover one of the Templars passed down a book containing all the secrets and codes to finding a particular treasure, they soon realize this forbidden treasure needs to be found before Cyrus, the lord of the possessor demons, acquires it—a treasure which been safeguarded and hidden from him.
There is only one problem: the pages containing the clues leading to the treasure is missing. When the first page is found, Cyrus threatens to kill more descendants of the Knights Templar if it is not given to him by Friday the thirteenth. In the midst of threats and discovery, the demon-hunting angels find they are not alone when supernatural beings begin to reveal themselves. Can they put their differences aside and work together to solve the Knights Templars’ cipher? As they astral travel to the past, they witness a lot more than they have bargained for. And some things are better left unseen.
I thought the book was pretty good. I have never read the first series with Michael and Claudia, so I will definitely have to later down the road. I thought the main character of Lucia was an okay heroine, but it took awhile for me to start to warm up to her. I really loved her brother Zach and there guardian Davin a lot. Davin was so freaking funny and kept me laughing, but he also had a very serious side as well.
Lucia is only 17 years old I had to keep reminding myself that, because of some of the stupid stuff she does in the book. Plus she hasn't liked in the human world, or liked a boy, until she meets Eli, so she's also dealing with her hormones.
Now Eli I am still not sure about, I really don't know if I like him or not. Or how I feel about him and Lucia as a couple. Sometimes his such a jerk to Lucia, and he seems like a know it all.
I thought the book was very interesting especially the ending, which ends in a very big cliffhanger. So I am looking forward to the rest of the series to see however is going to turn out for everyone. Oh before I forget, which I would hate ,is if I don't talk about Lucia's best guy friend and another one of my favorite characters, which is Jack. I really love that he plays a big part in things that are going on, in regards to the plot. I just freaking love this guy, his just so awesome to me. I love that he is there for Lucia, and even though he likes Lucia as more than a friend, he knows that Eli is the one Lucia wants to be with. And he still wants to be in her life, if only in a best friend.
Thanks to all parties involved that picked me to take part in the book tour for this book, after I requested for it.
