Echoes of Angels (Keepers of Eternity, #1)
“This is an exciting, atmospheric story. . . . A dark fantasy with tortured characters and dramatic events, Echoes of Angels is a very promising start to a new series. 4½ stars.” —Romantic Times
With her life in shambles and nowhere to turn, Julienne Blackthorne has no choice but to accept her grandmother’s offer to return to her ancestral home—a home Julienne’s mother fled in fear more than twenty years ago. What she finds there is a world so macabre it haunts her senses and fills her with dread. And the darkly compelling Morgan Saint-Evanston, whose mysterious pull haunts her in more sensual ways.
Morgan was once the most feared mercenary in a sinister realm and was destined to become the leader of his people—a duty he abandoned when his tormented soul drove him to seek exile in the mortal world. Tortured by his betrayal and the knowledge that those who dwell on the dark side will one day have their vengeance, he turns to the beautiful Julienne for one last moment of solace. Because the veils separating the worlds are about to open, and Morgan knows he must take the fight to the enemy before the forces of darkness unleash their unholy hell on mankind.
As Julienne surrenders to the undeniable passion that flares between them and Morgan prepares to confront a fate he cannot ignore, both will be plunged into a realm where human souls are open barter and even the power of love may not be enough to save them.
NOTE: Previously released as The Keeper of Eternity. I do not recommend you buy the Samhain versions. These new editions have been re-written and re-edited.

“I really loved this story. It held me in its grasp from the very first page.” – Simply Romance Reviews
“A profound story that sparks the imagination, and is as intelligent as it is emotional. The extraordinary start to Devyn Quinn’s Eternity series.” – Rogues & Romance Reviews
“A must read! This erotic paranormal story takes you on a journey of secrets and magic and won’t let you go. 5 Angels.” -Fallen Angel Reviews.
“If you love a dark, dangerous, spooky and sensuous story, with a hero so tortured you are not quite sure if you want to hit him over the head or jump his bones, a heroine who at first seems weak, hopeless but then turns into a strong, independent woman, an ending that will make you gasp, then this story is for you, dear reader. Be warned, Ms. Quinn pulls no punches in this sometimes gruesome story that borders on the horror genre. This reviewer loves this kind of story and Ms. Quinn delivers just the right mix of all of the above to give a stunning read. 5 Hearts!” -Love Romances
