March Plug #4 — Loren Rhoads
As Above, So Below by Loren Rhoads & Brian Thomas
When the succubus Lorelei sees the angel Azaziel from across the bar, she knows he’s been cast out of Heaven, but is not yet Fallen. She resolves to do whatever it takes to bring the angel down. When she trails him back to his lair in the warehouses outside of downtown Los Angeles, they seduce each other. Later, on the streets of L.A., they encounter Ashleigh Johnson, one of Azaziel’s mortal charges, dying of hepatitis in the street. The angel rescues Ashleigh’s soul from two harpies poised to devour it and uses it to possess Lorelei. Other angels don’t foresee any positive outcome to any of this. In their eyes, their brother has endangered a mortal soul and compromised his own standing in Heaven. When they intrude, Lorelei flees — taking Ashleigh Johnson along for the ride. In the process, Lorelei discovers that she has developed a soul of her own, a soul which is most certainly damned. Before long, her sister Floria tracks down a defrocked priest willing to exorcise Ashleigh’s mortal soul from Lorelei’s infernal flesh. The intimate little ritual swells into a virtual Who’s Who of Hell’s presence in L.A.
Loren Rhoads is the co-author, with Brian Thomas, of the new novel As Above, So Below. The succubus Lorelei’s adventures have previously appeared in Sins of the Sirens (Dark Arts Books, 2008) and Demon Lovers (Ravenous, 2012).
