Devil's Kiss by Sarwat Chadda

Devil's Kiss by Sarwat Chadda 5 of 5 stars.

As the youngest and only female member of the Knights Templar, Bilqis Sangreal grew up knowing she wasn't normal. Instead of hanging out at the mall or going on dates, she spends her time training as a warrior in her order's ancient battle against the Unholy.
Billi's cloistered life is blasted apart when her childhood friend, Kay, returns from Jerusalem, gorgeous and with a dangerous chip on his shoulder. He's ready to slide back into Billi's life, but she's met someone new: amber-eyed Mike who seems to understand her like no one else and effortlessly stakes a claim on her heart.
But the Templars are called to battle before Billi can enjoy the thrilling new twist to her life. One of the order's ancient enemies has resurfaced, searching for a treasure the Templars have guarded for almost a thousand years--King Solomon's cursed mirror, a source of unimaginable power. To save the lives of millions, Billi will have to put her heart aside and make sacrifices greater than she could have imagined.

Devil's Kiss is a wonderful book, well written and fast paced, it will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. The characters are believable and real, even if the circumstances are not. Sarwat Chadda did a wonderful job weaving together myths, legends, and Biblical tellings to create a story you could believe in. I would suggest this book to just about anyone.
