Synopsis:Kidnapped by humans and raised in a research facility, Jett was taught to believe his own race of demons insidious and violent. But a friendship with the archangel Raphael shatters Jett’s reality. Caught between two worlds, his first months of freedom find him lingering on the fringes of his home colony, Sanctuary. When the human who stole Jett captures another demon youth from Sanctuary, Jett learns of the real plan—to steal Raphael’s archangel grandchildren. Jett wants to bring his captor to justice, but he must overcome the lies from his past and join forces with the demon Guardians, and the demon child’s older sister, Lexine.
Irresistible attraction grows between Jett and Lexine, but Lexine’s prophetic dreams of being mated to a poacher make her wary. And if Jett goes through the all-consuming process of becoming a Guardian, he may forfeit any chance they have of being together.

Deep in Crimson was the first book that I have read of Sarah Gilman's and this book was excellent! Demons and Angels together?! Who would have thought that they would be working on the same side? I certainly didn't... This book pulled me in by the first couple of pages.
First we meet Jett, a demon that highly distrusts other demons after he was raised in a lab. Jett smells something off, and after debating on whether or not he wants to find out what's going on, he runs to investigate.
While there, we meet Lexine, a demon with a rare demon deformity whose brother has just been kidnapped. Lexine has had dreams about who her mate is, but then meets Jett and wonders if it's possible to change fate? Will Jett stay in Sanctuary and take a chance at love?
Sarah's writing is great, and keeps the reader engaged with the storyline. The Guardians are trying to find Lexine's kidnapped brother and looking for the place where the lab is, all while things are happening in Sanctuary. It's all a very exciting ride of emotions and trying to find where one demon fits when he didn't know if he could ever fit in anywhere. Also, is it possible to find love?
I will for sure go back and read number 1 and then I will be re-reading this book because it is that good! I found myself wondering about some of the characters and hope there are more coming for this series! I want to know more!!
A well deserved 5 skulls and highly recommended.
