A Memory of Wings by Emily Smith-Dee
Once Lucifer's most feared assassin, Shax is tormented by the need to find the one who got away. Outrunning friends and foes, he comes face-to-face with his quarry, the angel Kheone. The smart choice would be to kill her, but for reasons he doesn’t examine, he rescues her instead. Now embroiled in the events that closed the Gates to Heaven and Hell, Shax must decide between love and saving his own skin.
Loyal and lethal, Kheone pursues the demons roaming Earth with single-minded ferocity, fulfilling her purpose to protect humankind. When her friend dies under circumstances eerily similar to the explosion that cast her out of Heaven, she makes a deal with Shax to track down the killer. Struggling to trust her new partner, Kheone fights her growing bond with the demon as they discover pieces to a puzzle that might reopen the ways back to Heaven and Hell. Working with a demon tests Kheone’s loyalty to the Archangel Michael and has her questioning the nature of good and evil.
