Nearly three thousand years ago, demon
Cael saved the life of angel Malak at Sodom. Because of
this, Cael has a chance to complete a trial and stay on
Earth until the Apocalypse, when he will be returned to
Hell. When only a few days remain and Malak shows no sign
of giving in to their mutual desire, Cael begins to despair.
Malak is grateful that Cael saved him
from untold millennia waiting alone for the Apocalypse, but
he refuses to give up a part of his soul. He’s been able to
resist their attraction for all this time because he wants
to return home to Heaven. With time almost up and his time
with Cael nearly at an end, though, he gives in at last.
Then Lucifer gets impatient and looses the Horsemen early.
Can Malak and Cael stave off the End of Days and keep Cael
Dancing on the Head of a Pin
is a great fantasy tale. The world-building is
excellent. There’s a good mix of action, emotion, love
scenes, and back-story. Both Malak and Cael are wonderful,
three-dimensional characters, willing to sacrifice their own
happiness for each other. I really liked the way love
changed them. The various demon and angel secondary
characters are interesting, and the politics of Heaven and
Hell make for fascinating reading. I would enjoy reading
more stories set in this world. If you like your romance
spiced with action and fantasy, or like me love reading
about angels and demons, you’ll enjoy Dancing on the
Head of a Pin.
