Publisher's Summary

My name is Landon Hamilton.
I’m a ghost.
I died five years ago, except I didn’t get to rest in peace like most of the departed. Instead, I was tapped by Dante (yes, that Dante) in Purgatory to become his champion and save humankind from the rest of the Divine - you know, angels and demons and their mortal followers.
It seemed like a great deal at the time. I would answer my calling as a diuscrucis (a perfect balance of angel, demon, and human) by getting sent back to the mortal world, inheriting the "magic" to bend the universe to my will, and saving humanity from devastation.
Hindsight… it sucks.
Yeah, I saved the world; but my vampire almost-girlfriend, Rebecca, stabbed me in the back (literally); I was forced to kill my angel best-friend, Josette; I’ve got a snarky werewolf taking up residence in my soul; and to be honest, I’m getting tired of the whole damn thing.
I don’t eat, don’t sleep, and barely feel. I’ve become obsessed with the Demon Queen’s warning, and the only thing keeping me hanging onto any shred of my humanity is Josette’s daughter, Sarah.
Except…now she’s gone.
She was taken right out from under my nose, and I don’t know by who or for what purpose. What I do know is that I’ll do whatever it takes to get her back, and there isn’t an angel, demon, or god that can stop me.
It’s a good thing I’ve still got my anger.
Betrayal is the second book in the best-selling Divine series, a contemporary paranormal and urban fantasy set in New York City and Paris, France. It is suitable for adults both young and old.

Just as good as the first one! A great series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this to a friend. We have a really solid group of characters immersed in an amazing story. It's a must-read!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Landon. He's the main character so he obviously gets the most screen time. Saying that picking him out also brings with him the characters in his head which I really enjoyed watching him come to an understanding with (on one side) and getting reunited with on the other side. You can see him evolve his personality from almost a soldier or an enforcer to someone taking more interest in the personal elements of the balance that he keeps.

What about Jeff Hays’s performance did you like?

Brilliant performance. He brings the characters to life, really enjoyable narration in general as well which makes it a great book to listen to.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The only thing keeping me hanging onto humanity is gone. How do I maintain my balance?

Any additional comments?

The first book (Divine) was good. The second, I just couldn't put down (Betrayal) and I've just started book three, Broken.

The plight of Langdon and Sarah seems impossible. But the characters seem so real. Their thoughts and feelings, the remorse and the internal battles make them come to life.
