Product Description

Product Description

All's fair in love and war when specialist Jane Larson and Captain Barnaby Blackstone give into their lust for each other while stationed in Vietnam. As the world disintegrates around them, their one night of passion ends with her evacuation back to stateside duty.

Years later, Jane is neck deep in an undercover DEA operation gone horribly wrong. Kidnapped and then committed to an asylum, she has no hope of escape from the clutches of a notorious cult leader. The only thing that sustains her through the pain is her memories of Barnabyoeven as she knows she'll never be with him again.

Little does she realize that Barnaby has spent several of his years as an immortal, Indebted killer yearning for the fierce and beautiful woman who had unlocked hope in his cold, hard soul. When his sixth sense leads him to her hospital room, he sets her free, but in the process attracts the attention of an otherworldly maniac intent on revenge. To save Jane from the dark forces surrounding her, Barnaby must reveal his deepest secret. Can she live with the man he's destined to be, or will the truth leave her lost to him forever?

This novella has a very intriguing premise that stands out amongst the sea of paranormal tales out there. David’s well developed concept of the Indebted not only had me intrigued throughout this story but also set the series up well. The novella itself was well written with a plot that had me on pins and needles throughout. Vivid descriptions combine with intense storytelling to create a whole that I didn’t simply read, but also experienced.

I enjoyed how well-developed David’s characters were, without ever going overboard on character development. I felt as if I really got to know them, while still wanting to know more. It was a true introduction to new friends. I also enjoyed getting to know these two. While I may not have always agreed with their choices, they did make for a fantastic story.

With this novella David has created a tale that not only sets the stage for her Hell to Pay series, but also is a fantastic read on its own.

HASH(0x9e78ac00) out of 5 stars since learning it would feature the great love story of Barnaby Blackstone March 7 2016
By Liana Smith Bautista | Will Read for Feels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
***I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review, which was originally posted on book blog Will Read for Feels.

I’ve been looking forward to Flame’s Dawn, the prequel to Jillian David’s Hell to Pay series, since learning it would feature the great love story of Barnaby Blackstone, the former Indebted who was so helpful during the books published earlier in the series. Learning it would take place during the period around the Vietnam War only made me more excited, as I grew up watching TV show China Beach and movies like Forrest Gump; Good Morning, Vietnam; Born on the Fourth of July; and Heaven & Earth. What sealed it was David’s playlist for Flame’s Dawn, which she recently shared with Will Read for Feels.

When I finally got to sit down with this book, I was pleased to see that the author had definitely decided to start the action in medias res. Chapter 1 drops us down right in the middle of the Vietnam War, where the world has gone to hell. Our two main characters, Barnaby and Jane, find each other here. And they have a moment in time that means more than they expected it to, but when the promise of a future is almost in their grasp, it is snatched away and they must find each other again. Of course, a whole world of nasty happens between then and a happy ending.

This book is jam-packed with action, and the two characters have one essential thing in common: they’ve both got spines of steel. It’s something that shines through over and over again, by the very truth of everything they’ve survived to get to the point where they can achieve a happy ending.

Barnaby’s is the character that really shines through the most in this novel, something we’ve seen hints of in earlier books. He exhibits a combination of caring, a need for restitution, and a desperate desire to get out of the terrible life he is trapped in, where he is a slave forced to kill the evildoer. Jane was someone you had to admire for her ideals and what she was willing to go through for them, but I did find myself on occasion wishing she had taken a more active role in the butt-kicking.

This was an intense, action-packed read that was definitely a great bookend (in many ways front and back) to the Hell to Pay series. If there’s one major item I would’ve wanted to see here, it was that the author saw the story through all the way to their happy, settled lives, in which Barnaby achieves his Meaningful Kill and settles into life with Jane.

All things considered, this book, and the way each read in this series has improved with every installation, left me pretty excited for Jillian David’s next projects—she shared that she currently has the starts to two new series in the works, and one even has ties to the Hell to Pay series, so keep an eye out for more information on those to come in the future!
HASH(0x9e6e7954) out of 5 stars Great addition to this series! Feb. 29 2016
By Carol - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Flame’s Dawn is a prequel in the Hell to Pay series by Jillian David. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by the author.

In this book we get to know Barnaby who later plays an important part in the lives of the characters you met in the three books in this series. It is 1968, in the midst of the Vietnam War. Captain Barnaby Blackstone has been drawn to the beautiful Jane who is a linguistics specialist, but he keeps their friendship platonic. He doesn’t feel worthy of her. You see, Barnaby is an indebted. An immortal who signed a contract with the devil himself in exchange for help and now spends his eternal life hunting and killing dark souls with his special glowing knife which feeds the devil’s appetite for darkness.

“Unworthy as a man? Laughable. He was no man. He was an ungodly scourge upon this world. Barnaby, the wretched creation of Satan, was the thing nightmares were made of.”<.i>

Barnaby possessed a sort of sixth sense and when walking past the office where Jane worked that night, he was drawn in. As they talked in her office, the base is attacked. Barnaby and Jane hid in a closet and once they knew they were safe, passion took over. But, directly afterward, Jane is evacuated back to the states. That is the last time she would see Barnaby, thinking him dead, for six years.

After returning to San Francisco, Jane joins the brand new office of the DEA. But with very little training, she goes deep undercover in a drug ring run by a cult leader. Jane soon discovers their crimes run much deeper than drugs but before she can get the evidence she needs, they force her to take drugs and much worse, eventually putting her in a mental hospital to keep her quiet.

Barnaby is in San Francisco and again feels that sixth sense kick in which draws him to the hospital where he again saves Jane. They go into hiding but Jane sees things that aren’t possible. Barnaby moves faster than humanly possible or can jump farther than any man possibly could. As her abductors follow them, Barnaby is forced to admit to Jane what he really is. By now, Barnaby is hopelessly in love with her. Will she ever be able to accept him? Or will she run?

I enjoyed this glimpse of Barnaby. He is searching for scrolls that might contain the information how to break the curse that forces him to continue to commit murders. Jane opens his heart, something Barnaby had long since given up on. This is a short book and can either be read before the Hell to Pay series or after as I did. It definitely helps me to understand Barnaby better knowing what he has been through.
HASH(0x9eaf28e8) out of 5 stars The idea of selling your soul to the devil, was an interesting twist March 3 2016
By Erika Daman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a dark tale of love. Two people meet in the worst of circumstances; they take comfort in each other while trying to survive. One has a dark secret and the other has no one and has witnessed things no one should witness. Fast forward a few years and these lovers that were seperated are drawn together. One is locked in a mental institution and the other still has his dark secret. They are fighting a major evil. Can they survive and still find love?
I enjoyed this story, but really wish there was an epilogue. I am so curious about whether they were successful or not. Ughh! I know I can use my imagination, but I wish the author would have given something. Overall though this was a good tale, a use of historical times (as a history teacher who is teaching that era, it was so interesting) and a horrible situation, this book was about survival, even with the worst happening. It is interesting, the characters were likeable. The heroine was strong, even though she was at her lowest point and the hero was strong but a good man. The idea of selling your soul to the devil, was an interesting twist.
I will be exploring this series after reading this book.

HASH(0x9e8735dc) out of 5 stars Hell to Pay is an awesome series! April 3 2016
By Geneva Handleman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Jillian's Hell to Pay series is one of my absolute favorites and to get Barnaby's story finally is so bittersweet. She says she is now done with series, so a hole is left in my reading list now. The story does not disappoint in any way whatsoever. Barnaby is at his finest hour, full strength as an Indebted with a heart of gold.

As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock, I give her five full bleeding hearts for his story and an awesome closure to the circle of characters I have grown to love so much. As always, the sex scenes are both steamy and sweet at the same time. I'll be rereading these over and over for sure!!
