Ronnie has the job any entry-level angel or demon would sell their soul for—she's a retrieval analyst for the largest search engine in the world. Ubiquity is a joint initiative between heaven and hell. Because what better way to track all of humanity's secrets, both good and bad, than direct access to their web browsing habits.
She might appreciate the position a little more if a) she could remember anything about her life before she started working at Ubiquity, b) the damn voice in her head would just shut up already, and c) her boss wasn't a complete dickhead.
As she searches for the solutions to the first two issues, and hopes the third will work itself out in performance reviews, she uncovers more petty backstabbing than an episode of Real Housewives, and a conspiracy as old as Lucifer's descent from heaven. On top of all that, if she forgets the cover sheet on her TPS report one more time, she's absolutely going on final written warning.
Now Ronnie’s struggling to keep her sanity and job, and stop the voice in her head from stealing her life. She almost misses the boredom of data analysis at Ubiquity. Almost.
Ronnie has "lost" her memory and Lucifer has promised to help her get it back but strange things keep happening. First there's the fact that retrieving Cherubs is meant to be easy but suddenly Ronnie is having huge problems, second the very sexy archangel Michael has reappeared on Earth which is unheard of! Oh and finally there's that little thing where Ronnie is hearing voices well a "voice" singular to be precise and she's got a hinky feeling she knows just who the "voice" belongs to! It's starting to look as if there's a whole lot more going on at Ubiquity than Ronnie had previously thought and she's slap bang in the middle of it!
Heaven and hell, angels and demons, these are fascinating ideas to be playing around with and I got a huge kick out of the search engine idea as a place for them to work together. A certain entity that starts with the letter G anyone? Oh yes, most definitely an original idea but what I found most interesting was Ms Hall's take on the origin of both angels and demons. Like most I have visions of Cherubs being somewhat small and sweet creatures but the author exploits that idea and just let's it run! No spoilers here but not what I expected at all.
Ronnie is surrounded by secrets and lies and struggles to know who to trust but she has to make a choice if she is to survive. Faced with an angel who loves her whilst at the same time there's an angel who would kill her, just how does Ronnie decide and as for that "voice"? It's trying to take over and Ronnie is about to have the fight of her immortal life on her hands!
