Publisher's Summary

As the son of a serial killer, homicide detective Thomas “Veck” DelVecchio, Jr., grew up in the shadow of evil. Now, on the knife-edge between civic duty and blind retribution, he atones for the sins of his father - while fighting his inner demons. Assigned to monitor Veck is Internal Affairs officer Sophia Reilly, whose interest in him is both professional and arousingly personal. And Veck and Sophia have another link: Jim Heron, a mysterious stranger with too many answers... to questions that are deadly. When Veck and Sophia are drawn into the ultimate battle between good and evil, their fallen angel savior is the only thing that stands between them and eternal damnation.

    Would you listen to Envy: A Novel of the Fallen Angels again? Why?

    Yes I think I will.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's so dark, but in a good way.


    What about Eric G Dove’s performance did you like?

    Eric G Dove is great... I will look for more of his books.


    Any additional comments?

    I see the next book is due out... So sad it looks like Eric G Dove is not going to be reading it. So I will have to stop at this book. Why mess with a good thing.

    Any additional comments?

    Ward does a great job of sharing the focus of a book with more than one character. This book really adds a lot of depth to the other angles. I also think that Ward does a great job with the same sex relationships and the dynamics in them. If you are straight laced this book might be a bit much for you but if you like a variety Ward delivers. I had fun reading every part of the book. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

    Story
    "A Powerful addition to the series"

    After losing the previous soul to Devina, Jim Heron and his three companions, return to Caldwell to face the battle for the third soul on the line. But Detective Thomas DelVecchio Jr. brings with him a set of problems that they hadn't faced before. His soul isn't possessed the way their first soul was, so an exorcism won't work, he has a split soul due to the sins of his father...

    But there's hope, in the form of an IA agent, Sophia Riley, if either of them has the courage to take a chance.

    As for Jim, he has a personal stake in this one; Veck and Riley are investigating the disappearance of Sissy, the young woman Devina sacrificed in Covet. A woman Jim is drawn to more than he can explain, despite the fact that Sissy is dead.

    A fantastic addition to the Fallen Angel series, with strong tie ins to the BDB series.

    As for the narrator, he's truly grown on me, and works wonderfully for this series.

    Story
    "Envious"
    If you could sum up Envy in three words, what would they be?

    By far the best of the series to date. The story of Jim Herron and his mission to bring down the demon Devina continues. Jim must help Vic, a detective in Caldwell. This story syncs up with the substory of


    What does Eric G Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His tone is fantastic - an intensity and passion where appropriate


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. I was drawn in to the backstory of each character and can't wait to read the next book.

    The Idea that angels could be amoung us looking and acting like everyone else.

    "Fantastic stories"

    I am really enjoying this series of books by JR Ward. This book as with the first two in this series is well written and enjoyable along with suspenseful. I especially love how in each of the fallen angel novels there is at least something of the black dagger brotherhood in it.
    Really looking forward to the next installment in this series.

    "Not what I expected!"

    I love JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood and the Fallen Angel series, but what is with all the homosexual content?!?! I don't spend money on these books to get into the head of a gay angel...this is just too much for me. I hope JR Ward reconsiders the direction of the Fallen Angel series. The book is well written in typical JR Ward style with all kinds of twists and turns. I am just left with an icky tastes as the gay characters leave me turned-off!

    "Third in the Series Good twists"

    I will probably buy all of these in the series. I really enjoyed Covet the best. Didn't enjoy Crave. This one however has some scary and interesting twists. The narrator is perfect for this writing. I don't care for his female voices but I have gotten over it. Covet was more mysterious but Envy is more interesting. All of these books have very graffic sexual content. Tickler at the end...
    I am into this series but my background argues with the storyline all the way thru.

    "J.R. did it again"

    If you read J.R. Ward you are familiar with her snappy style and sexy characters. Envy does not disappoint. I think it is the best of the Fallen Angel series. The characters grow, develop and become real, which says a lot considering most of the characters are angels or arch-angels.

    Envy is pure fantasy escapism and worth every minute spent listening to it.
