And the bad guy is not really bad enough. For a demon I thought he'd be more vicious. He basically comes down to a mechanic lover and a manipulator. Nothing a normal human being couldn't live up to as well.
Its not bad, just not very epic in scale, which to me the title suggested.
Don't like throwing other peoples' work under the bus, but ...
Found it a waste of space. Really poor hero and heroine (and I use those works with difficulty), zero chemistry, poor plot, pathetic villian, need I go on?
I struggled through most of the book then gave up through sheer apathy.

Derek is a Templar Knight, when they were destroyed by the pope on Friday the 13,1307, he withstood his torture and finally murder. When he gets to heaven he blames God for letting him be overcome by the forces of evil. He refuses to go into heaven and continues to fight in the war against satan.
Rachel Duncan is a Wall St executive and the center of a plan by the dark to cast the world into a time of crisis. She is wined and dined by Zanus. Derek is sent to stop her and help her over come the evil tempting her.
The writing about the stock market was very real and so the threat seemed like something we face every day. I just didn't get the whole scheme as anything other than business as usual. The interaction between the angel and Derek was supposed to be humerous but how do you be funny and fight armagheddon at the same time. It doesn't work. The book doesn't work, the romance is totally absurd and so is the ending.
Do not waste your time or money.
It had lots of potential but it just never got there..
I was glad that it did not have a three page sex scene every five pages ...which is something new for the Romance/Paranormal books these days. That was a nice change.
Not sure what I expected but considering Margaret Weis is a well known sci/fi writer I would have expected something a little more fast paced and not so slow to develope.
Like I said it was ok...easy to follow. You know who the bad guy is from the first time you meet him. The good guy is good looking and nice almost to nice. And the take a cat for daily walks. I guess that is where the sci/fi part come into play in this book. Cats don't go unless they want to go.
The little bit of romance sparked at a point, but ended up fizzling to nothing within a page.
I had to force myself to finish the last few chapters and I couldn't even make myself read it all. The ending really rubbed me the wrong way and I gave away the book in disgust. It was a waste of the paper it was printed on.
The only good thing about it was the preview of another book in the back.
Now the demons are moving to Earth with a rumored new tactic so Derek de Molay is sent to watch over commodities trader Rachel Duncan who lost her guardian angel. Derek is the doorman at her building where he meets the man she involved with Andreas Zanus who is actually a demon in human form. He convinces her to do some shady deals for him. Derek knows that Zanus is high up in the legions of hell and also is torn between following Heaven's orders and his need to protect Rachel the woman he loves. Rachel must decide what to do about Zanus blackmailing her into doing what he wants, knowing it is illegal and will cause harm to millions. Derek must find a way to save Rachel and stop Zanus, two goals that seem impossible with the heavenly limitations placed on him.
Margaret Weis has long been known to fantasy fans for her epic novels. Now she takes her writing in a new direction, collaborating with her daughter Lizz to provide an enthralling paranormal romance that concentrates on the battle between the angels and demons over human souls. Readers will like this entry because the angels and the demons have some human qualities that make them easier to understand. The romance between Derek and Rachel is glorious as a man who doesn't trust God and a woman seduced by a demon's glamour feel for each other something that can only be heaven sent.
