About The Book:
How much will an Angel and a Demon sacrifice to find their true destiny together?
Abdamas is a halfing, born of a moral woman but raised in hell by the demon who sired him. All his life he has been proof incarnate of the war between good and evil that exists in every human soul.

Shaebiel is a human angel warrior earning her salvation by fighting demons like Abdamas on earth.

When Abdamas is injured playing unlikely hero Shaebiel takes him to her apartment to heal him. There is both heaven and hell to pay for their actions. As they both fight and surrender to their desires, the conflict around them rages on. However, once heaven offers a deal and hell breaks in to counter, the stakes get higher and higher.

Soon, the true question becomes, how much will they sacrifice of themselves in order to find their true destiny together?
Inspiration for the book:
After I read a few good angel and demon stories like Fallen Angel by Margaret and Lizz Weis and Demon Angel by Meljean Brook, I just had to write one of my own. This often happens to me.
All I had though of for my own story though was this battle scene with angels and demons fighting each other, and then a demon saving an angel. I liked the question of what someone would do if they were an angel warrior and the demon that was supposed to kill them saved them getting hurt in the process? Would the angel then help the demon? I like to give myself these kinds of questions to ponder, and then I keep asking myself, "what would make this even more of a problematic situation?"
I didn't have any idea how the story would go or how I even wanted it to end, but once I started writing it the characters took care of that for me. It was one of those stories that takes on a life of its own and was written in a very short amount of time. I walked around for days though pondering if a demon could ever enter Heaven!
About Kiki:
Ever since she was young, Kiki Howell loved to listen to a well-woven tale with real characters, inspired plots, and delightful resolutions. Kiki could spend hours lost in a book, and soon she knew that creating lives, loves, and losses with just words had to be the greatest thing that she could do. To that end, she pursued her study of literature and writing, earning a bachelor’s degree in English. She then followed in a Master’s program in Creative Writing.

“After a long break having my boys, I finally just had to write again. And, as soon as I gave the stories the space, they entered it.It’s both awesome and humbling to find the words in my mind become characters on a page and create their lives.”

Kiki resides in the Midwest with her incredibly handsome and talented, singer/songwriter husband and two children. When she is not writing, she is spending time with her family, reading, baking or knitting.

Her biggest dream is to have a novel she writes be made into a movie that her husband creates the soundtrack for, and then cruise to Alaska with her family on the money they make.
