When seventeen-year-old Diana recognizes an elderly priest in a video on YouTube, she realizes that reincarnation is real and that she’s been alive before! Every night in her dreams, she relives her past learning that it’s kill or be killed. Now a bishop at the Vatican whom she saved in another life calls on her once more. She is needed to help defeat evil within the catacombs of Rome. But when she arrives in Rome, she meets Alexander – the man of her dreams! Through the centuries she has loved him…betrayed him...been killed by him. Will she give him another chance or this time will she strike first?(
It’s not often you read about demon slayers, and being reincarnated over and over. But what made Diana special was that she is able to dream about her past lives. That may not be the best thing. She only dreams about her deaths. Never about the good things, just her deaths and how Alexander has killed her over and over again.
At the beginning I was unsure if I was going to like this book but these types of books always surprise me. And once I started it I couldn’t stop, this book was very fast paced and it was almost scary to read about all her deaths, and to be able to imagine all that happening to one person is just unbearable. I found myself cringing when she got hurt or laughing when she was laughing. And I found myself rooting for Alexander and Diana to get together.
The only problem with those two is that Alexander is a demon and Diana is a demon hunter, you would think that Diana would slay him and get over him when she had the chance, but somehow he convinces her differently. I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say you won’t be upset with the outcome.
I don’t believe in reincarnation but the whole plot was different and creative and I loved every second of it. I loved how she incorporated history in this book, putting her own creative twist on things. I was very surprised at the biblical reference and loved that she incorporated that into her book.
And while we didn’t get a whole lot of Alexander, only bits and pieces I know that he will show more often in the next book “Silver Demon” which hopefully will come out sometime later this year.
I highly recommend reading this book, you won’t be disappointed!
