Deep In Crimson, By Sarah Gilman


 

Kidnapped by humans and raised in a research facility, Jett was taught to believe his own race of demons insidious and violent. But a friendship with the archangel Raphael shatters Jett’s reality. Caught between two worlds, his first months of freedom find him lingering on the fringes of his home colony, Sanctuary. When the human who stole Jett captures another demon youth from Sanctuary, Jett learns of the real plan—to steal Raphael’s archangel grandchildren. Jett wants to bring his captor to justice, but he must overcome the lies from his past and join forces with the demon
Guardians, and the demon child’s older sister, Lexine.
Irresistible attraction grows between Jett and Lexine, but Lexine’s prophetic dreams of being mated to a poacher make her wary. And if Jett goes through the all-consuming process of becoming a Guardian, he may forfeit any chance they have of being together.

There were some parts of this book that I completely enjoyed.  I loved the twists about the demons and angels which is not something that you read about frequently when it comes to paranormal reads.  But there were also parts of this story that seemed to drag on for me.
Parts of the story dragged on for me.  It felt like there were times that the author was unsure what she wanted to say and went in a roundabout way to do it. The characters in the story were really well written  out.  One of the problems that I had with this book was the fact that Jett was confused about his past.  It felt like the people who did know what was going on, didn’t seem to want to help him remember his past at all.  But it was really great when things started to come back and he was able to find out more about his past.
Lex’s character, I go back and forth between whether I like her or not.  Just solely because she didn’t seem to really add anything to the story itself.  While I am happy that she cared about Jett
enough that she was willing to go through training to be with him.  I still felt like she was lacking.
I fell let down with this book because I had hopes that it was more interesting than it was.  It felt like the ending was rushed and the overall story didn’t go as far as I thought it was.
