#1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward explores what really happens when good and evil toy with humanity in her new novel of the Fallen Angels, as the salvation of a doomed soul depends once again on a crossroads....
When Cait Douglass resolves to get over her broken heart, throw off her inhibitions, and start really living, she's unprepared for the two sensual men who cross her path. Torn between them, she doesn't know which to choose - or what kind of dire consequences could follow.
Jim Heron, fallen angel and reluctant savior, is ahead in the war, but he puts everything at risk when he seeks to make a deal with the devil - literally. As yet another soul is unwittingly caught in the battle between him and the demon Devina, his fixation on an innocent trapped in Hell threatens to sidetrack him from his sacred duty....
Can good still prevail if true love makes a savior weak? And will a woman's future be the key, or the curse, for all of humanity? Only time, and hearts, will tell.

I love love love these books...but...I could really do without about a third of the profanity. There are waaay too many GDs used. I have a mouth to rival any sailor on any day, so it's not that I'm offended by general use of profanity, but it's a bit too much too often. It sometimes takes me away from the story because all I can think about is the fact that very very few people actually speak that way 24/7.
Not much to add from other reviewers who also love this terrific series. I totally enjoy the Devina demon with her wardrobe, obsessions and OCD! And going to see her therapist---so inspired and funny!
Loved the two men who vied for Cait's attention. And who doesn't love our main angel, Jim? And all the goings-on with heaven, hell and all those sexy angels.
One of the most charming things about this book is the funny and clever shorthand speak of all the characters! I wish I could remember them, but it's kind of like "ops" for "operation".
Eric Dove is so perfect for this material. His tone and inflection has just enough sexiness, bravado and feeling to suit each character.
love the series, this book isn't as long as others in the series but it was a great listen. can't wait for the next one. love the narrator too !
Oh my goodness, do not miss the twists and turned of this series! Great story and narration! What a great way to spend spring break with my kids!
This book was absolutely incredible! This series has been one stellar book after another. Excellent narration, riveting storyline, and some twists and turns that will make you sit up and seriously pay attention! Bravo, bravo, bravo! Credit worthy and then some!
The narrator is okay, but his female voices are getting even worse. He makes them all sound like 11 year old boys. And he's also making Jim sound like Adrian too much. (Get it together and focus Eric.)
The storyline of the Soul in question in this book is very good (and super hot).
BUT there is WAY too much Jim and Sissy in between. That storyline was always boring, and now it's becoming distasteful. She's a virginal 19 and he's a whoring 40. It started with him feeling badly for her in a father-daughter kind of way. So that just makes where they're heading even more pedo-ish. (And the fact that the narrator makes her sound like a whiny little kid doesn't help.)
And BTW, why don't they bury Eddie's body already? Or bring him back to life or whatever. All the "guarding" and carrying him around like luggage is getting a little weird too...
I picked this series because of how much I love the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. The quality of the narrator is extremely important to me & Eric Dove nailed it on this series. I love the struggle between good & evil - even when good doesn't always win. Looking forward to the next book!
I love this series, and each book in the series is better than the last one. I had no idea where the plot was heading until J.R. Ward decided to let her readers in on the secret. And the plot twist - never saw that one coming.
Eric Dove is way up near the top of my Top 10 narrators. He does an outstanding job narrating. He is Jim Herron.
