Purgatory Reign by LM Preston (Review)
Something evil this way comes...sadly for it, Peter Saints awaits.
Peter Saint's life stinks. But things are about to get much worst. First, his parents are murdered in front of him. Then another victim dies in his arms. Visions plague Peter with warnings that something wants him for a sinister cause. It desires the one thing that Peter refuses to give—his blood. Peter carries within him the one gift or curse that could unlock a secret to destroy the human race. On the run with Angel, a scruffy kid, Peter starts to unravel the mystery. It's the one treasure the heavens sought to hide from the world. Unfortunately, when Peter finds the answer that he hopes will save the girl he loves, he opens the door to a great evil that happens to be salivating to meet him.

From having read Bandits, I knew LM Preston could nail male POV, and she does exactly that in Purgatory Reign. Peter is a character that you root for right from the start. He's had a really tough life, and just about everyone around him winds up dead. But then he's given a gift, although he sees it as a curse, at least a first, and it sends him running for his life.
The action scenes are really well done, keeping tensions high and the pace quick. Peter's relationships with Angel and later Kyle are fully developed with lots of twists. While I did predict one big twist, it didn't take away from the story at all.
The books does stand on its own, but it definitely implies there will be a sequel, one I'm looking forward to reading.
