This book is about a war between good and evil. One man is charged with saving 7 souls, he must bring them to light or the evil wins. If the evil wins, the world is over and everyone becomes mindless slaves. So Jim must save Vin's soul (who is the first of seven I assume) in order to save the human race. Obviously, there is more too it than that, but you will have to read it, I don't want to give too much away. From this book and what I have read from other sites and such, I believe each soul will be confronted by one of the 7 deadly sins, and therefore there will be 7 books in this series. Vin's sin I believe was greed. I don't know this for a fact, it is just speculation.
The beginning was sort of slow, I had to make myself keep reading, at about half-way I would have rated this book a 3 star, but...right about a tad after the half way point it got much better. There is some super steamy scenes between a couple of the main characters, and there are some awesome fight scenes as well. The plot picked up considerably and I finally started to see Ward's biting sarcasm from her characters. This book is definitely a must read if you are a Ward fan. I am super happy I got it in hardcover now.
