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.
