Dear Reader Letter from Erica Hayes on Redemption
Falling in love while the world's ending is inconvenient. Demons everywhere, the sky's raining fire, and all you can think about is her eyes. Her smile. The skip in your pulse when she looks at you.
But that's the thing about love, right? Love happens. The cliché of a thunderbolt is old because it's true. You can't predict who, or when, or why. It just hits you — blam! — and you've gotta deal. Even if around you, the world's burning.
And that's what Japheth, my warrior angel hero in Redemption, is faced with. In the near-future Manhattan of my "Seven Signs" series, demons have hijacked the Apocalypse, and are unfolding their seven twisted signs. If they win, there'll be hell on earth. And Japheth is hunting down a sociopathic demon prince with a costume fetish, who's responsible for turning half the city into ravenous vampires.
Stop the demon, and Japheth will get what he's longed for: redemption. A way back into the heaven that cast him out long ago. For centuries, he's coldly resisted all temptation — especially women — to make up for his mysterious sins.
So it's a pity the woman Japheth falls for — Rose — is a vampire. Not just any vampire, but the demon prince's chief minion, known as the Angel Slayer. A gorgeous, red-hot firebrand who wants to kill him. Needs to kill him, or her evil master will hurl her down to hell. Rose never wanted to be a demon's cursed slave…but she'll do what she must to survive.
Two assassins, pitted to the death. The cursed vs. the fallen. Lose, and you're damned…but what of your heart? Can love ever be evil? Is hatred ever justified? And what if your nemesis is the only one who can save your soul?
Redemption is a tale of broken vows, shattered convictions and long-forgotten sins scraped raw. It's dark, violent, sexy and romantic. I hope you enjoy it! And if you haven't already, do check out book #1 in the series, Revelation. You can find me on Facebook and Twitter.
