Publisher's Summary

Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed nearly too dangerous, too ruthless - and if he isn't careful, he'll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice will not be deterred from his missions at any cost…until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he's never known before.

Accused of a crime she did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival, but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation - or her ultimate damnation?

    Story
    "I prefer The Lords Of The Underworld."

    Gena Showalter is one of my favorite authors, and this book is a spin-off of the Lords of the Underworld series, but it doesn't have the same feel and the story didn't measure up at all. It doesn't have Gena's usual humor, which I think makes her books. The narator is the same narator that reads the Lords of the Underworld series, but I think this book may have been better with another narator, because it makes you want the same feel as the lords of the Underworld, and you never really get it. It somehow falls flat. The story just isn't that captivating. I wasn't impressed .

    "it was ok"

    I would have enjoyed it more if the narrator acted out the words versus just reading them plus he could have changed the pitch in his voice to distinguish between characters. although he has a nice voice I was dissatisfied.

    "What's not to like?!!!! Great story!"
    If you could sum up Wicked Nights in three words, what would they be?

    Give me more!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like HEA when both parties are battling their own demons.


    Have you listened to any of Max Bellmore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes ... I enjoy his performances very much!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Annabelle starts trying to protect her Z ... I found I could resonate with her feelings.

    Story
    "Laughable"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Truly, there were quite a few occasions where I actually laughed out loud. The storyline could have had potential, but it was just so weak in the unfolding. The narration was strong for the male part, but made the female role seem ridiculous. I don't know if my annoyance with Annabelle was fully the insubstantial character development or the comical voice she was attributed by the narrator! I listened to the end, of course. I mean, I did pay for it! However, I often realized I was rolling my eyes or laughing (not in a good way), rather than being drawn in by the plot or relationships. Zacharel's reverence for Annabelle was also far-fetched and over-the-top, so as to become boring and tedious. Do not waste a credit. If you own the book in print, it could be a good choice for read-alouds with your partner and gain some giggles I suppose.


    What could Gena Showalter have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    1. Insist on male and female narration or a female narrator who can do a strong, deep male voice. (That could help to soften the blow of such poor character and plot development.)2. Take more time to think about how to round out the full story and make the characters more endearing to the reader. I started out really liking Anabelle, but by the end I thought the Deity should have banished them both to Earth as mortals and be done with it! The romantic events were trite and disengaging. I often stopped listening or wished to fast-forward through those episodes, which defeats the intention of a romance. Absolutely, no magic!


    What didn’t you like about Max Bellmore’s performance?

    His variation of tonality for the male parts was very appealing. He had good pacing and inflection.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The first chapter had my attention. I thought the heroin would evolve with greater conviction.Too bad she didn't. Zacharel's character seemed wishy-washy in places and his neediness of Anabelle distracted from his strength. There are ways to do this that can be more appealing, as it has been convincingly done in many, many top romance stories (both movies and novels) with great success. He can need her deeply without sacrificing his strength of character.


    Any additional comments?

    Gena Showalter has some good material in other stories she has done. This one just felt like a poor attempt to wrap up another novel.

    A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.

    "Performance was good; the story was Bad on Toast"

    Mixing Mythology with Christianity is a non-starter. I really wish I had been warned that this was more of a modern retelling of Greek legends than a book about angels and humans. The heroine was a good character - surrounded by such a bad story.
