A page turning mystery with a supernatural twist that entertains to the last page! ~InD’tale Magazine
When teens go missing in Hawaii, a group of demon-hunters—half human and half angel—disguised as high school students, must leave Crossroads, the place where they reside. In a race against time, they uncover the mystery connecting the missing teens, which dates back to the era of the Knights Templar. However, when they discover one of the Templars passed down a book containing all the secrets and codes to finding a particular treasure, they soon realize this forbidden treasure needs to be found before Cyrus, the lord of the possessor demons, acquires it—a treasure which been safeguarded and hidden from him.
There is only one problem: the pages containing the clues leading to the treasure is missing. When the first page is found, Cyrus threatens to kill more descendants of the Knights Templar if it is not given to him by Friday the thirteenth. In the midst of threats and discovery, the demon-hunting angels find they are not alone when supernatural beings begin to reveal themselves. Can they put their differences aside and work together to solve the Knights Templars’ cipher? As they astral travel to the past, they witness a lot more than they have bargained for. And some things are better left unseen.

My Rating: 4 Stars
My Recommendation: Hight
WOW! I could not stop reading this book. With that shotgun start and the constance action, plot twists (yes plural) and sheer epicness, I was captured from the first word until the last.
I will say that I didn't read the prequel, but that didn't stop me from devouring this book. True I was a little confused with somethings in that world, with not having much background to go on. But at the same time, this book is so well written that I wasn't all that lost, I caught on pretty fast. If you aren't like me, and can just go with the flow and ignore missing info, then I would suggest reading the prequel. (It's on my priority reading list)
I loved every second of this book, the writing was stunning, the flow has this urgency to it that really sets you on edge. And that ending!! OMG, so bittersweet, what a way to end the first, and to start, this epic journey.
This is a must read book, it's simply put, out of this world.
