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?

Sassy, Fun & Enthralling
I really enjoyed the different voices that he used for each character.
must read: darynda jones, Karen moning, Ilona Andrews, kim harrison, gena showalter, Karen chance,patricia briggs,jeaniene frost ,L taylor,
if you love lords of the underworld you will love this too! if you haven't read/listened to those you should!!! This is a stand alone book and i love that, but reading the lords will enrich the experience. I really liked the plot twists in this book and hearing zach's story! Gena Showalter is always fun and entertaining. each book of hers always has similar things in each one, when it comes to the relationship between the main characters but she always finds a way to make them grab your attention, keep you entertained and wanting more. I agree with some of the others that reviewed the book when they say it was " a little less steamy" we are so used to so much detail and hotness from GS but i wasn't disappointed.
The best way to read.
I liked that the characters were familiar from the Lords of the Underworld series and that the story has unexpected twists. I did not like the lack of creativity that Gena Showalter puts into her stories.
I didn't have a favorite.
No. It was slow and dragged out and not as good as I was expecting.
It was a good listen, but no where near the quality of Gena Showalter's other books.
I enjoyed this book.
I can say that out of the series of these books, I really enjoyed this story line, Although I fast forward the intense love seines in these books I love the stories,This story line was quite different from the others in the series and I liked the difference, So if you have read this series and like the stile of books you will really enjoy this book. I know I did...
Wow! An excellent new series!
Zacharel and Annabelle are awesome! I am so glad Zacharel got a chance to ???warm-up???. I have loved him in his appearances in the ???Lord of the Underworld???. Annabelle is a strong female character. They are a perfect couple
Max Bellmore is an outstanding reader! He really made the characters come to life!
The book was full of action, but a great love story!
I suppose this book is ok. The storyline is pretty good and the performance is passing... I'm just a bit confuse... is this Gena Showalter's work?...
I read and listened to all of her books in the Lord of the Underworld series and... this book's way of writing seems to be different... especially the intimate part... when Gena write intimate... wow! she describes everything in details and made it pretty hot... for this book... it seems like the author is a bit shy about details... there's a lot of vagueness that is so different from all the book in the Lord of the Underworld's writing.
The reader has problems changing his voice for different characters, so at time it was pretty hard to tell who's talking. Beside that he's pretty good.
I'm a fan of Gena Showalter writing... this book makes me question if she gets one of her shy assistant to write it for her.
Great story, lots of twists and turns! I also really like the way it ties into her Lords of the Underworld series but you can see how it will be it's own seperate series of stories. Can't wait for the next one!!!!!
I would listen again, possibly skipping some chapters. I liked the interaction between the angel and the girl. The demon fights were rather intense.
This is the only book I have read that has interaction between human and angels. The demons were quite scary.
I liked the angel character best. He was dealing with new experiences.
Angels - 1; Demons - 0
I'm really enjoying this book and the narrator's voice. Her ability to change into total different charaters within the story.
I was new to the world of Angels. Figured it was time to try something new. I was reluctant to enter the world of vampires before becoming a Sookie Stackhouse reader, so now I try to stay open to all paranormal adventures. I loved the main character Annabelle: she's strong, saucy and sarcastic. Zacharel is sexy and strong (how I like my male characters) and a bit broken. They both are for that matter. I'm a sucker for any sort of magical powers and love of good fight especially when justice is involved. I also liked the authors commentary on insane asylums and mental illness; without getting too preachy about it, you're left questioning the treatment of the mentally insane. I will definitely continue reading this series and am excited to add Angels to my list of paranormal reading.
Is it worth the credit? Definitely. It's a little violent at the beginning but once you get past that part of the story, it's a great read.
