Synopsis: Now that the battle with Hell’s angel, Azazel, has ended, you’d think eighteen-year-old Milayna’s life would take a turn for the better. After all, what could be worse than having the angel of Hell trying to steal your soul? Plenty. Abaddon, the demon of destruction, is angry that Azazel failed to convert Milayna before her demi-angel powers matured. Now she’s untouchable … or so she thinks. It seems even in Hell, there are loopholes.
Not only is her life in danger, but her love life is crumbling, too. Just when Milayna and fellow demi-angel Chay get comfortable on their little cloud of bliss, Xavier comes to town. He’s one angel that’s as hot as the very embers of Hell, and he has his sights set on Milayna.
Now she has the demon of destruction out to kill her, Xavier out to steal her heart, and she still has to take final exams before she can graduate high school.
Sometimes life sucks, even if you are half angel.
An Excerpt from Milayna's Angel:
Gym. I hated it. Didn’t everyone? I was good at two things—swimming and softball. Other than those two, I sucked at sports. I couldn’t hit little pucks across the floor, I didn’t like white volleyballs flying toward my head, and I didn’t care if I managed to get the little yellow tennis ball over the net. Swimming and softball. That was it.
We were running track. That wasn’t too awful. I pretended it was a big softball diamond without the bases.
What made the class unbearable was Shayla. She used to be part of our group of demi-angels. Then she jumped ship and sided with Azazel to become an Evil. I couldn’t stand to look at her, much less share the same class with her. Not because I was scared. The sight of her, knowing where her allegiance stood, made me feel physically sick.
“Nice ring,” Shayla said as she passed me on the track.
I didn’t answer, just focused on my feet hitting the pavement, pushing myself to go faster, harder.
“It’s not over, you know. Azazel isn’t finished with you.” She looked over her shoulder. Her gaze met mine for a few seconds before she faced forward again.
I doubled over, holding my side. It felt like something was burrowing a hole inside me. Breathing hard, I walked to the side of the track out of the way of the other runners. Images scrolled through my mind. I closed my eyes and pinched the bridge of my nose between my fingers. My head pounded like someone was using it for batting practice. My side burned, and it wasn’t from running.
Me. I can’t breathe. Hands are around my neck… choking me. Cutting off my airway. My chest burns, my head pounds. I’m clawing at the person’s arms. I hear laughter in the distance. My head swims… stars blink in front of my eyes…
The images vanished. I gasped for air, filling my lungs until they were stretched to capacity. I looked up, still squeezing my side with my hand. Shayla ran past, a knowing smile on her lips.
