Natalia Ashley is the tour manager for the rock star, Cain. She lives for her life on the road and the music just like her grandfather before her. The band is her family.
Matthew Gallow is a fallen angel and a con man. He thumbs his nose at God by pretending to exorcise his partner in crime over and over again. He thinks that he has been forsaken by Heaven, but it seems that he has been in training.
Rock star Cain has become an overnight success and his personality has changed overnight also. The only members of the crew he has remained friendly with are two newcomers. His tour is less than successful however, and the tour manager, Natalia, thinks that they need something more. She finds an exorcist to liven up the show, not realizing who she really hired. And when young fans start dying and blaming Cain, Matthew is the only one who can save them all.
This is an unusual sort of paranormal without the usual vampires or werewolves. The demons and angels are just as fascinating. This story puts new meaning into the idea that rock and roll is the devil’s music. Matthew and Natalia are vivid characters and complement each other well. There is plenty of action and excitement and the love scenes are scorchers. Matthew’s relationship with his former employers is problematic, but I really liked the less than majestic archangel William. Natalia’s ghostly grandfather Woof is very likeable and colorful; the dead Deadhead gives a lot of insight into the living characters. The final showdown is very exciting and the ending satisfying with an unexpected twist.
