A dead body.

My name is Evangeline, and I’m a retired assassin who wants nothing to do with the underworld. But an edict from a Demonic Lord forces me to return to the man and the life I left behind.
I have seven days to prove my innocence.
Whoever set me up is going to die.
Lexi C. Foss is a writer lost in the IT world. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and their furry children. When not writing, she’s busy crossing items off her travel bucket list. Many of the places she’s visited can be seen in her writing, including the mythical world of Hydria which is based on Hydra in the Greek islands. She’s quirky, consumes way too much coffee, and loves to swim.
I sighed. Fine. We could collaborate on this mission, but that didn’t mean we were partners. Assassins worked alone for a reason; we didn’t play well with others. But we did know how to play along to obtain information, and that’s exactly what I would do, for now.
If you were sent to Earth to save humankind from a war, how would you do it? Would you know what to do? What about the pressure of having all of that weight on your shoulders? For Evangeline, the mission is unclear from the start. What she fell for was love, love of an angel…a manipulative, backstabbing, dishonest and cryptic angel. Foss creates an intriguing and creative story filled with action, romance and mystery.
Evangeline is an angel who fell to Earth for one purpose…and his name is Xai, the son of Chaos. As a bar owner—and former assassin, her reputation and retirement still harbor resentment among some. When a Demonic Lord summons her regarding the death of his daughter, she has no idea that she is in serious danger…and not just her heart upon seeing the only man who has ever gotten close enough to shatter it. Xai comes bearing bad news…one of her blades was found by ashes that reek of the Demonic Lord’s daughter. With Xai’s assistance, she has been given the opportunity to amend the frame job and find out what is really going on. It could be the start of a war brewing and the world, oblivious to the shift, may be doomed to the underworld’s bidding forever.
Foss has a superb story-line and wonderful character development in this installment. The main characters are snarky, mysterious, humorous, and most importantly—immortal. The pace is very fast and provides a sense of thrill and urgency to the story.
