Before the Fall is so incredibly unique and surprisingly different that I don't have a suggested audience, but rather, I feel that anyone will fall in love with this series and especially this third book. Leah Downing continues to amaze me and I am truly honored by the opportunity to read and review her work. I cannot wait to see what comes next in the Shooting Stars series! ~Jen Thomason
After surviving a domestic terrorism scandal, a murdered husband, and a demonic curse, escaping Hollywood's D-list should have been a cakewalk for Lauren St. Germain.
But the reviews were in, and it was too late. She'd already fallen for leading man James Bayer who, simply put, is not a good actor. Although critics from across the globe had ripped apart his wooden superhero turn in Clan of Justice, he'd somehow convinced her--a federal agent-turned-yoga instructor--to travel to Africa and fight against a highly-armed, rebel militia of ivory poachers: Joseph Kony and the Lord's Resistance Army.
Enter Iblis, the supernatural demon who's been haunting her late husband's family for generations. He tempts Lauren with an offer. She can either remain on her current path that results in the death of her beloved James OR she can ask Iblis to save him.
Unable to bear the thought of losing yet another man, Lauren sets a new chain of events in motion. Events that spur a parallel adventure in Africa with the promise that James will indeed make it out alive. Alive, yes. But at what cost to her?
