"the Apocalypse is upon us"

The prophecies have now come to pass and the Apocalypse is upon us. Demonic spawns have been released from their prison and the hideous beasts roam the streets, preying on the souls of remaining humans. For those who refuse to take the mark of the beast, torture and death await.

Melina Soar is just trying to stay alive, and protect her younger brother Adam. Forced to hide out and scavenge for food, their existence has been reduced to mere survival, and hope is nearly lost. And if that is not bad enough, her brother is making unexplained trips into the night and is becoming more and more distant. When Archangel, Rafe Santos, appears and saves her from certain death at the hands of a demon, can Melina believe his claims that their shared destiny is part of a divine plan? And can Rafe convince Melina that she is the Chosen One, and that the fate of mankind may hinge on her belief?

RAFE'S WAR is the first book in the Apocalypse series by author Jade James. The author has created an ominous atmosphere, where danger lurks at every turn. The characters are strong but not hardened; doing what they must to survive but hope remains. The chemistry between Melina and Rafe is very intense and amplified by the dark and dangerous mood created by Ms. James' skilled writing. At first glance, the religious tone of the story would not seem to match the erotic content, but the author makes it work. The series will continue with the mysterious Archangel Gabriel, which promises to be an exciting read. Readers looking for dark, sensual fantasy will want to check out this apocalyptic themed offering.

The humans thought they had years before the foretold apocalypse would arrive. They were wrong...

The angels and chosen humans are to unite, to save the world from endless destruction, resulting in a bonding that will last forever.

Archangel Rafe's assignment is twofold; convince Melina to join him eternally, and to protect her against the evil that stalks her. Love was the last thing he was expecting to find.

Even with everything she's seen, Melina's not prepared when Rafe saves her. He claims she was destined to be his wife, but Melina canít accept that idea without his love.
