Fantasy-Romance newcomer, Meljean Brook brings a new aspect of "good and evil" to the reader in her premiere book, Demon Angel. Brooke brings the constant battle good and evil to light with such a character of Hugh Castleford, a medieval knight who upon his death is transformed into a Guardian by Sir Georges, the historic tale of Saint Georges and the Dragon, who was the archangel Michael. The evil presence in his book is presented in the form of the devil’s own daughter, a halfling beauty, Lilith, who antagonizes Hugh for the 800 years of his being a Guardian. Hugh battles more than just the only surviving halfling through the centuries, for he must also battle the emotions he has within him whenever he is in the demon’s presence. Hugh and Lilith, even though different in many ways, lives by the code of immortal beings which states that whatever either do, they are not allowed to interfere in the human’s free will. Lilith, a demon for almost a millennium before Hugh had been transformed into a Guardian, had become to fight her evil side, especially when it concerned coming up against the young teenage knight. At times throughout the expanding years, Hugh and Lilith had to come together and fight a greater unholy evil, nosferatu. The nosferatu, the forefathers of vampires, threatened the well being of all humans and Guardians alike. The time had come where Hugh and Lilith had to fight together one last time, with the assistance of their vampire friend Colin, against the nosferatu in modern San Francisco to save all mankind. The Guardian
and demon had to make than final stand against this dark evil as the humans they once were; however, Hugh and Lilith greatest battle would not consist of them conquering the nosferatu. Their greatest victory will be the simple act of saving the other. Meljean Brook’s presentation of the “good and evil” is a superb extension to the age-old battle that has plagued mankind throughout history.
