#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 have a very fast paced life. Audio books are an awesome alternative for me. Long road trips, working out and housework arn't a bore.
At times I found myself hanging on every word or busting out laughing or so drawn in I was sitting on the edge of my seat. Great book!
Usual great read!
Finding Nigel dead. Total shock! Can archangels kill themselves?
Yes- all of the Brotherhood & Fallen Angel books. If anyone else performed these books, I'd be very disappointed.
Yes, but then I wanted it to go on forever too!
Each book in this series just gets better and better. The only problems I had with this story was what happened to Colin with Nigel dead and for what reason did Duke go back to Cait's house to save her from GB? I wish the reason for him returning to her house was given. Was it heavenly intervention or what? It just felt like there was more to the story that needed to be written.
When does the next book come out? I need more of the story!
I'm not sure why the story seemed so bland but it's possible that the author was writing Lover at Last, a novel from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, while she was writing this book. The story was "eh" at best but the narrator always does a great performance.
Yes, historically she's put out very good books and one mediocre novel doesn't erase her very good ones.
This narrator is phenomenal. Even when he performs a woman's voice I end up laughing or having some other reaction.
There really weren't that many encounters between the main characters in this novel. I would have really appreciated more details to the plot of the story. Only then would more love encounters between the two main characters been warranted.
I loved this book and hate it it a little because it left me wanting more!!!!! I can't believe I have to wait a whole year for the next one =( The story is the best because I didn't know what was going to happen & then other things happened that I could not believe were possible.
I have been following Jim's journey for years and I love the little crossing the the BDB characters but this book is the best I've read so far.
Devina. I just love her & her OCD!
The deep voice he gives the male characters
I could not stop listening =)
Yes, Even with the heros being bigger than "real life" and some plot lines evident early in the book, J R Ward is always a good and interesting read. I find something that I missed earlier. Jim and the boys rock, Devina is twisted just enough, where else can you find a demon with OCD?
The BDB series, interesting plot twists
Besides being sexy cool, there is no way I could hold my interest. his voice is what is needed.
Cissy returning home for the visit
I look forward for JR Wards books. I frequently repeat listening or read the books in Bed.
I have enjoyed this series immensely... however the last two book have felt rushed. I know publishers give deadlines and I wish they would stop doing that it always ruins good stories. This one was just ok if your like this series then I would suggest reading it but do not be in a rush and maybe wait to see if it goes on sale buy one get one type of thing cause I know I wish I had waited .
I love J.R. Ward's books, but this one is slow and lacks focus. If you're following the Fallen Angel series you'll be disappointed in this last book.
I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and/or listening to mostly paranormal and fantasy.
I won’t give any spoilers from this book (which there are many), but there will some be from previous books in the series.
In book five from the Fallen Angels series, we start off pretty much where book four ended. Jim is obsessed with getting Sissy out of hell. He does what he has to, to get Devina to give up Sissy and she isn’t in great shape. He spends a large portion of his time focusing on her and not enough time on the game.
It take a while to figure out who the soul is this story. Ward doesn’t focus on the hero and heroine as much in this story. There is so much that goes on more with other aspects of the game, they seem lost within the story.
The heroine is Cait, who is a children’s book illustrator and art professor in college. She was actually one of Sissy’s professors before she died. She has a broken heart and her best friend is trying to get her back into the dating game. She meets a singer, GB, at a club with her friend. He asks for her number, which her friend promptly supplies. The before she can even leave the club, she runs into Duke, whose a bouncer at the Iron Mask. He wants to meet with her at the club when his shift ends. Cait has a hard time choosing between the two men.
We find out more than halfway through the story that one of these two guys is a really bad person. He has done some things that you don’t expect. We learn more about GB’s and Duke’s past later in the story.
As for the game, there are some extremely large changes that happen. I can’t say more than that without any spoilers. Let’s just say that, you have to read the book (or in this case, listen).
As for narration, I normally give Eric Dove a 4, but for this one, I have to give him a 3.5. The reason, Xhex. Duke works at the Iron Mask as a bouncer, which makes Xhex, or Alex, his boss. She has quite a few lines early on in the book. He makes her sound WAY too feminine. Now, to give him the benefit of the doubt, if he’s never listened/read BDB books, he would have no idea that Xhex is anything but feminine. John Matthew is mentioned as well, but more as the big guy that comes to see “Alex”, nobody’s ever heard him say a word.
Overall, I enjoyed the story, but I would’ve liked to see more time with our hero and heroine. I think their story was great, but too much time was spent on Sissy. You cannot skip this book.
