Chained to a demon queen for hundreds of years, fallen angel Ramiel has given up on his brothers and sisters––and humanity. He has seven days away from hell to replenish his power and that’s all he cares about––right up until his meeting with the much too innocent Kyria. He fell for that act before and it landed him in hell, he won’t be making that mistake again.

To save her sick father, Kyria knows she must find Ramiel. He’s dark, brooding and everything Kyria should be scared of, but the haunted look in his eyes makes her think there’s more to him. The tattoos and chains don’t frighten her either, but the connection she has with him does. When strange creatures attack her, Ramiel steps in to protect her.

Ramiel believes he’s reluctantly helping Kyria, but what neither of them knows is that she may be the one to save them all...


What a great start for R.C. Alvarez and her new Rapture series! I was completely intrigued by all the characters involved in this story and there were times when I found myself more interested in them than the main characters. Overall, a solid start to this series and I can’t wait to read the books to come.

Ramiel and Kyria couldn’t be more perfectly matched than they already are. I loved the bit of inner battle that Ramiel would have over Kyria. As much as he wants to stay away from her, he’s constantly being pulled in her direction and can’t exactly pin point what it is.

Kyria was definitely her own little mystery and throughout the book we’re learning what exactly she is. I loved her ferocity and tenacity towards her father and learning more of the truth about herself. She’s definitely no damsel in distress, but side by side with Ram, they definitely make a power couple.

I truly enjoyed Ram’s story as well as we’re going through each chapter, we’re learning so much about his past. And essentially why he is the broody archangel that he is.

Truly a great start with Alvarez’s debut book!
