Synopsis: Faith’s torn affection between the two angelic brothers, Kort and Seth, is once again tested, and then put aside as an unexpected threat looms. Satan and all of his followers are scrambling to tempt, touch, and invade humanity again; thus, weakening God’s rule and unlocking the chains of…The Irin.

Kort, who is to be of truth and honor, wants to keep Faith in the dark about the ex-archangel hit squad with powers that supersede those of the two angelic brothers in love with her. Seth wants to tell her everything; including the fact that the leader of The Irin, Samyaza, is not only cruel, but takes the virtue of human women to give his angelic powers a boost. And if he can take the virtue of ‘the chosen one,’ he will gain power over all of mankind as well. Well…no more piddly-ass-little-girl crap, Faith’s tired of being the damsel-in-distress, and she’s not about to be any longer. God bestows Faith with some unique weapons against The Irin—useful blessings, for not only does sexuality ooze off Samyaza like rays of light bursting off the sun, his features would buckle any human girl’s knees.

Faith has not been lucky in life. A descendent of Eve, and non-religious herself, she was chosen to decide the winner of a wager between God and Satan. Now the task has passed and she thinks she'll be able to move on with her life. Nope. Nuh-uh. Sorry. She doesn't get much of a break before the angels tell her Satan and his followers have released the Irin, a group of angels created long ago to protect humanity. Sadly, their leader Samyaza fell in love and felt betrayed by one of those humans, and decided it was better to get a quick power boost by taking the virtues of women instead. Now free from the chains that bind him and his Irin followers, he's aimed his sight on Faith, who would not only give him a huge power boost, but claiming her virtue would also pass along the power she has over mankind's fate. Yeah, no pressure there. Luckily, God presents her with a few powers to protect herself than no angel has ever seen before. But will it be enough to stop the advances of the strongest angel out there?

Predestined picks up exactly where Preordained left off. The best thing about this novel is there's no lag in the beginning like the first one. It pulls you in from the start and doesn't let go until the end. Once again, I was in it for the steamy romantic encounters. Bleh heh heh. But the story surprised me and I really liked where it went. Predestined brings the story to a close, but warns of an impending bleak future. I'm unsure if Ms. Libsack will write a third novel for this series but she's definitely left the option to do so.
