Every millennium, the youngest and most
innocent angel in Heaven is sacrificed to the most evil
demon in Hell to maintain the balance between Heaven and
Hell. Because Elandra is very different from other angels,
she is chosen as the sacrifice. Raziel knows he must defile
the angel in order to appease his father Osgiloth, but
Raziel is not a typical demon. Raziel does not want to
defile his captive. He wants to please her instead.
Raziel’s unheard of affection for Elandra may cost them
Hell is over-run with lust and pain and Heaven is void of it
in Defiled. The storyline is excellent, but
its execution lacks depth and feels mechanical, mainly
because sex is the main focus of the story. Raziel thinking
Hell is too hot, and Elandra being the only female angel
with female attributes are comical. While Elandra's naiveté
is endearing, she also borders on oblivious at times.
Elandra and Raziel are completely out of place in their
realms and Gabriel and Osgiloth are both merciless.
Defiled had a lot of potential. I was hoping for
more from it than a mostly sexual story.
