This is a FirstReads win that I received in the mail today. I look forward to reading and reviewing this one.
The legend is foretold, from the writings of the Ars Goetia, he who bears the name of Dantalion, hath fallen from grace. ... who wears the mark of a demon...
Dantalion, a beautiful 'Incubus' demon of the Goetia, once an immortal angel of God, has fallen from grace and is now condemned. He seduces a young girl named Laurel, A Religious Studies student at Yale, and a practitioner of the occult who resembles his mortal love, Lilith. Laurel's obsession with him turns from seduction to salvation when she evokes his true demonic form in the Courtyard of the Undead and he must choose between saving her mortal soul, stolen by Satan, residing in the third heaven, over his immortal redemption and rightful place within the first heaven.
