Long ago, warrior angel Alexius was
banished from heaven and brutally stripped of his wings.
Now he has a chance at redemption. He must stop a
powerfully talented human artist from being used by a demon
to create something that can bring forth the most deadly of
evils. However, after seeing Psyche, the woman whose life
he cannot spare, Alexius knows he cannot go through with his
task. Instead, he will do all in his power to protect
Psyche from harm. But a romance between angel and human is
forbidden and their actions will impact not only their own
destiny, but the fate of all of creation.
Enter the world of angels, demons, and
art in the evocative Psyche’s Gate. Danielle
D. Smith has penned a fantastically vivid tale of good,
evil, and everything in between. I admit, I found
Psyche’s Gate to be a fascinating read. It’s
interesting, frequently dark, and each character is
developed with great care. Where the vivacity of
Psyche’s Gate fell short was the romance. I
absolutely loved Alexius, but I could not help wanting to
feel the love grow between he and Psyche a bit more. Still,
I admire how Ms. Smith brought the world of Psyche’s
Gate to life in such great detail and look forward
to reading more of her work.
