Laila is born of angel and demon, her mixed blood a curse that bars her from both Heaven and Hell, so she must fight for the one place she calls home...earth. Flaming Dove is an action packed urban fantasy that dares to challenge the reader to question the traditional roles of good and evil. The apocalypse has come and gone, but the war between Heaven and Hell continues. Earth is a wasteland where angels and demons slaughter each other with no regard for human life. Heaven and Hell are deadlocked, but there is one woman who could tip the balance...for either side. Laila is half demon and half angel, a deadly combination that gives her strength to rival the strongest archangels and archdemons, but she doesn't belong to either side. Laila swears allegiance to no man, angel, or demon, but when the one place in all of existence that she can call home is threatened she must make a choice. Will she side with Heaven, for which her half sister fights, or will Laila fight alongside her former lover Beelzebub the current ruler of Hell? Flaming Dove presents an interesting look at the gray areas of good and evil. These aren't just your usual pure of heart angels and slithering evil demons...though there are also those in abundance. Arenson presents a dark and gritty look at armageddon and a kick butt heroine who comes armed with fangs, claws, and an uzi. A thought provoking dark fantasy novel filled with non-stop action and intriguing characters.
I recommend Flaming Dove to readers of urban fantasy, paranormal suspense, and especially to fans of dark fantasy.
