I finished it last night and I cannot even.. it blew my mind. Cassandra Clare is a genius and she is awesome and amazing and has such a masterpiece of a mind that wow, just wow. Let me tell you, this book didn't disappoint one little bit. It was perfect. Almost as perfect as Clockwork princess was.

Clary was super badass. Her gift really is powerful. 

Jace, oh, Jace. You really are a book boyfriend. And I really wish you were real. 

Our gang is as much fun as it used to be. I still found myself laughing like crazy through the dialogues. It was hilarious. 

I wish I could say more.. but after waiting for this book for 3 years, I will be damned if I spoil this book for you. Go ahead, read it and enjoy the journey. It's a fantastic one.

Maggie does not know she is a Messenger. She has never met her eternal lover. She has never survived a Fallen One. All this changes when a Messenger awakens in the Hall of Records only to die moments later, never to return.

As Maggie sets out to determine why the Messengers are suddenly beginning to die, she crosses paths with the infuriatingly appealing Eran and their story begins.

In this riveting account of Maggie's first life on earth with Eran, the star-crossed lover's romance transpires amidst treacherous enemies, their friends' resistance, and their own opposing wills. With the odds against her, can Maggie survive long enough to admit the feelings she has so carefully denied?

Messenger is the first prequel to the bestselling Guardian Trilogy - the breathtaking romantic saga about a love that has lasted centuries between a Messenger and her Guardian.


EXCERPT

He strode to me and crouched at my hip. His shirt was already off and the nearness of his well-built chest made it a challenge to stop myself from glancing at it. To my astonishment, he seemed not to notice my internal plight, not even the tremble that shook me when he tenderly took my chin and turned it toward him.

"You're healing nicely," he observed, concentrating on my forehead.

"Mm-hmm." It was all I could muster.

This was the closest we had ever been. His lips were no more than a few inches from me and drew my attention.

"I don't think you'll even scar."

When I didn't answer, I felt a shift in his presence and my eyes darted up to find him staring back with his striking blue-green eyes.

We froze in place.

Only our chests rose and fell, and they did it more rapidly the longer we stared at each other.

As his eyes lowered to my lips, his fingers tightened gently around my chin.

The flare of his nostrils and the intensity of his stare mesmerized me, made me want him closer. And it told me that he was struggling too and was in profound debate over what we were doing. No ward should be this close to their guardian, even if the ward didn't recognize them as one. It was taboo, unheard of, an abject insult to the role the guardian had been given. Yet, here he was, looking at me, at my lips, tensing at the sight of them.

And he wasn't alone in the struggle. For the first time, I forgot my urge to throw him off balance, my need to establish my independence. I was the one quickly losing my poise and forgetting who was dominant. The charm I fought so hard to deny, the very one that drew all others to him, took hold of me. And I gave into it out of my own free will.

Hate your job? Try working in HELL!

Melody Angel takes a job as a temp at the HELL Corporation. Surrounded by eternal bureaucracy gone mad, demons who love making life miserable, and dying for a decent coffee, it may take a miracle for Mel's mission to succeed. She must find out what evil plans the Lord of Lies has up his sleeve and stop him, using any means necessary. Lucifer and his minions are out to take over the world, but there's more than money at stake when the Devil drives. 

Adding trouble and temptation to Mel's job is Luce Iblis, the damnably hot CEO, who has set his smouldering eyes on the new office angel and is determined to claim her, body and soul. 

Can ultimate evil and angelic perfection escape a limbo of desire and find a paradise of their own?

I received the book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.

See you in hell was a fun, light read. I found myself laughing quite a bit. The plot was not that complicated, so it was really easy to follow the story line. 

Mel was a charming angel. She was sweet, nice, always ready to help. A true angel. Sometimes she was a bit funny, cause she was so angel-pure and on the other hand less pure with her sense of fashion. 

Luce was seducing man. It was really nice to see how he developed through the story. First he was a big jerk and then he changed to a sweet man and capable of love.

The paranormal twist in the story was appropriate and cool. The demons were so much fun and I laughed a lot. I found them more charming than the angels to be honest.

Overall, See you in hell was a fun and light read and I quite enjoyed it. So, if you are searching for a light, sweet, paranormal read, See you in hell is the perfect book for you!
