Mother-and-daughter writing pairing Margaret and Lizz Weis team up on an interesting book with insight into the busy and stressful life of concert promotion. Natalia Ashley is the manager of the hugely-successful rock star Cain. Her life is one of constant telephone calls, living on the road, enjoying the music. However, her charge's latest concert tour isn't going so well, and Natalia thinks it needs extra zing. When she hears of a priest apparently casting out demons, she thinks he might help add something to the set.

When Natalia meets priest Matthew Gallow, she's surprised; clearly he is a fraud, but very good one. He agrees eventually to help with Cain's concerts. There's much more to Matthew than Natalia realizes, though. As a fallen angel, Matthew has lived for two thousand years, and nothing feels special or important anymore. Meeting Natalia and becoming involved in a genuine exorcism seem to have awakened Matthew, not only to his feelings and senses but also to the suspicion that something dodgy is going on out there. Cain may have gotten sucked into something more serious than he or Natalia realize, but Matthew doesn't believe he's the one to sort it out. After all, he's a fallen angel. But can he really walk away from Natalia and her problems, and can they have a future?

The dual authorship doesn't negatively impact the story as it sometimes can. I felt slightly distant from the main characters, not able to fully sympathize with or understand them, and I was left slightly confused at the end as to what exactly had happened in the final pages. Still, it's worth reading, and the rock concert scene as a setting is a break from the norm.
