Description from Goodreads

 What brings a demon to the gates of heaven?

The half-fiend Kaanyr Vhok finally arrives at the destination he has sacrificed so much to achieve--he is in the heart of Celestia with his lover and consort, the succubus Aliisza. Only to find that the House of the Triad is falling apart, and he is bound by a vengeful Aliisza and a renegade angel into trying to save it--not exactly the goal he had in mind.

Aliizsa, Kael, Kaanyr and Tauron are back and this time they must stop the evil priest Zasian from reigning chaos and destruction on the land. 

Like the last book the writing is fluid, there are some grammatical errors in the Kindle version but nothing so bad. The characters are well rounded, and I like how Aliizsa and even Kaanyr are learning to accept little by little their human sides. 

 The action is steady, though there are not that many fight scenes in this book as the last or other books in the forgotten realms world of novels the book is still enjoyable as a whole. The magic and mystery and twists are wonderful and I especially loved the character of Kashada, she was great, even if she was evil. 

If you have read the first book then youll know what to expect, if you have not then pick it up. If you are new to the Forgotten Realms world you may be a bit confused but it is explained well enough that you can figure things out easily.
