In the aftermath of a battle that forced Ruby to flee the safety of the guardian angels, she settles into a small town, hoping to blend in and forget about the ones she loved. It isn’t until Hunter stumbles across her working in a bar and a well-timed email from Ivan Aleksandrov that she realised she could go back to Sage Sanctum — for a few days, at least.

Out for revenge, Lucian will stop at nothing until he has Ruby for himself, but he isn’t the only one that needs her. The council, a group of gods/goddesses, have a mysterious hand in Ruby’s return to Sage Sanctum and Mr. Aleksandrov is eager to find out what it is.

Destroying Lucian is the least of her worries when Ruby comes face to face with Eli De Luca, the love of her life. It seems her departure has affected him more than she thought it would, but his frustration with her isn’t strong enough to hide the electricity that crackles relentlessly between them.

Determined to end her very real nightmare once and for all, Ruby fights the biggest battle of her life, one that affects not only her, but everyone involved.

Not sure what your favorite supernatural beings are? Check out Salvation by Skyla Madi for a taste of goddesses, vampires and wizards, not to mention guardian angels. Looking for breakneck action and some pretty intense attraction? This is definitely the book for you.

Ruby and Eli have tried to put aside their feelings—and their bond—for each other and they were somewhat successful but Ruby has been called back to Sage Sanctum. Being around Eli again is only a piece of everything going on and survival of any of my favorite characters is not a given from one chapter to the next. Speaking of favorite characters, how could I not like a girl who’s both a goddess and a vampire? Eli definitely does not disappoint my “thing” for guardian angels and Lucian is a vampire you can love to hate but Hunter is the one that surprised me. He’s sort of the bad boy you know you should stay away from but you just can’t help yourself.

It all comes to a head in a confrontation that is exciting and resolves at least one issue and, if I have any quibbles with this particular scene, it’s that it happens too quickly and felt a bit rushed and anti-climactic. Even so, the author left me wanting more and that’s always a good way to end a book, isn’t it?

Salvation is one of those books that most readers will enjoy best if they read the series in order. I did not and, while I can’t say that was a mistake, I know I would have had a better handle on the characters and the core story if I had already read Your Guardian Angel and Sunkissed. I fully intend to rectify my error before the next book, Oblivion, comes out because Ms. Madi is one heck of a storyteller.
