Synopsis (from Goodreads)
Ash never thought going to a party could be dangerous. He certainly never thought it would change his life. But when a man with red eyes begins following him - and his sister - he realizes he was wrong. Soon they're running, leading the man on a desperate chase over icy roads. When Ash crashes his car, nearly killing his sister, the red-eyed man offers Ash a choice - save his sister, but pay the highest price possible. Bring Grace back to life, at the cost of his own soul. Suddenly, Ash is facing a choice he never sought. But will he use that choice to save his sister? And if he does what will it mean for Ash himself?

Someone has started a revolution in Heaven, his betrayal and lies tearing the fabric of the angels apart. Things are coming quickly to a head, and before long the angels will find themselves at war with each other. Friends and allies will turn against each other, each choosing their own side of right and wrong. If that happens, the world as they know it will end. It's up to Kali, protector of angels and humans, to stop the treachery before war breaks out and peace is shattered forever. But how far is she willing to go to save the lives of the angels? Will she turn against her own dearest friend to save her world? And if she does will anything be left for her to come home to?

Join Ash and Kali on their individual adventures as we see what - and who - led them to find each other in Soul Bound, the first book in the Realm of the Claimed

My Review:
The 2 short stories of her main characters are intriguing and fascinating and you always want to know more about them. 

The first introduces us to Ash, he gave his own soul to protect his sister but with all the wrong methods. But his choice is easily identifiable and understandable, but nevertheless had me almost shout at the screen in anger. I just kept hoping the Winchester brothers would turn up to tell him what a terrible plan deals with the devil are…

The second introduces us to Kali, Kali is so innocent just like an angel should be there is not a drop of evil in her. The set up for the following novels is clear and I have no idea how the situation will be resolved which is so bloody refreshing.

My Rating:
