Saved by the angel sent to kill them, four half-angel boys are trained and employed as Heaven’s assassins. Jarrid and his nephilim brothers are raised as members of The Eternal Order, and must enforce Heaven’s laws by hunting down those who defy the Directorate. 
His only shot at freedom is Ascension, but his employers won’t permit the ancient ritual. Then Jarrid learns a Renegade angel is in Detroit. Such a high-level take­down is the answer to his prayers—all the leverage he needs to Ascend. 
For freedom, Jarrid is willing to do anything to lure his elusive enemy out of hiding. 
Even use an innocent woman as bait. 
News reporter Ionie Gifford has no clue an angel outlaw wants her dead. She agrees to help Jarrid, the enigmatic nephilim with penetrating silver eyes and a worship-worthy body, but only because he accepts her terms. He’s her all-access pass into the city’s supernatural underworld where she hopes to locate her mother’s killer. 
Blind­sided by Ionie's beauty and tenacity, Jarrid soon finds the eternity-old glacier around his heart thawing. With duty and desire at war within him, he’s forced to make a choice—either save Ionie from the trap he snared and stay chained to Heaven, or allow her to become collateral damage.

My Review:
Welcome to a world of Half-breed Angels that go after their sires and also are assigned to assassinate any one who dares to not abide the laws of Heaven and the Directorate.  They are apart of the Eternal Order and they are not to be messed with.
Jarrid is one of nephilims who has a new mission.  He is actually keeping a part of the mission quiet form the Directorate because this mission may help get him to Ascension and his brothers.
He has to track down a woman news reporter and use her as bait to get the Renegade that the Directorate wants found. He has no idea why the Renegade wants the woman, but he will do anything to get his next assignment out of hiding.
Ionie Gifford is just trying to get her next story and when an Angel or half-Angel ends up in her boss's office, she sees the most interesting story ever.
What she does not realize is that Jarrid has other plans for her, but those plans go haywire when he realizes he is falling for her and she is for him.  Things are about to get even more complicated when the truth comes out on why the Renegade wants Ionie.
It is going to surprise the Eternal Order and even the Directorate, but Jarrid is going to find out it is harder to follow orders when your heart has changed course.

Be prepared to read a action-packed debut novel from Author Tricia Skinner.  She takes you into a world of chaos where Angels, Warrior Nephilims, Vampires, and Shifters are all over Detroit.  The Angels cannot stand the abominations called Nephilims, but they will deal with them because they take care of the Renegades who do not follow the laws of Heaven.  Then you have the Eternal Order who defy sometimes what the Angels say.
In between the Angel chaos, is the vampires who make friends with the Renegades and you also have shifters that vampires cannot stand.
It's one paranormal world you do not want to mess with really, otherwise you get caught in the crossfire.
Jarrid is one "brooding" will understand the brooding part if you read the book, who definitely is scary and overbearing at times, but he has his reasons.
Ionie is a determined, strong-willed and feisty character who is thrown into this chaotic world, but she ends up handling better than some of the other characters do.
I loved the connection between Jarrid and Ionie and they definitely were destined to be with each other.  Although, Jarrid took awhile to open up to his feelings, but you would be too, if you had no clue how to handle a woman since you had never been one.
Ionie was a little annoying at times, but she got better towards the end.
I loved the flow of the writing and how everything built up at the end.
I look forward to reading more about the other brothers in the Eternal Order, especially Cain.  =)
Tricia Skinner did an amazing job on the first book to her Angel Assassin series and I definitely will be patiently waiting on the next book since the Eternal Order has an assignment that needs to be done for the Directorate.
If you are a fan of the urban fantasy romance genre, this is a book you need to add to your TBR list or even read right away.
Here's hoping we do not wait too long on the next book.  I want some more of these sexy nephilim brothers.

I promise I'm writing as FAST as I can. Book 2 is well underway (and yes, it's Cain's story).

Thank you for hosting me!


Congrats on a wondeful review! I already have my copy. ;-)
