Title: Retribution
Author: T.G. Ayer
Series: Chronicles of the Irin, #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Her name is Evangeline and she is Nephilim.

Evie belongs to the Brotherhood Irin and together with all the other Nephilim of the world she is protector to humanity, protector against evil. But evil has found its way into the Brotherhood. Someone has murdered her guardian and Marcellus, the New Master makes demands of the warriors that go against all they stand for. Demands Evie just can’t carry out.

Evie uncovers Marcellus’ plan to collect a set of special seals, but when a high-level demon reveals the truth behind the Seals of Hades, Evie know there is no way she can allow the Master of the Irin to get his hands on them. But will keeping the Seals from Marcellus cause her to sacrifice more that she should? Will vengeance for her guardian’s death be enough or will she need more to satisfy her Immortal soul?



About the Author

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognise that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practise given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes... I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It's a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each others loves - it works wonderfully...

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands - I shall forever remain crosseyed.

My Review:
  Right off the bat it this was full of action and very fast paced.  I normally don't read too many books that deal with Angels and religious stuff but this was very intriguing and didn't get too much into religious beliefs.
  Evie is a great character. She could be very cocky at times but I really liked her. She has a very strong presence and knows what she wants. When new leadership takes over the Brotherhood Irin, Evie starts questioning the mission. As she put it she's starting to feel like a glorified garbage collector. Taking out all these demons. Where as before they were more of protectors.  Once Evie finds out the true reasons behind Marcellus take over she has to stop him.
  There's a lot of fun characters and creatures that Evie meets on her journey. I adore Julian who shows up more so towards the end. He seems very intriguing and sexy. I can't wait to read more in this series. It was just starting to get really good when it ended.
