Great start to a new GS series that gives you those tormented brooding angels that we see in LOTU coupled with some of the juicy Lords themselves for ..Show More »a little while. This is Zacharel and Annabelle's tempestuous unfolding love story that has all the classic Showalter ingredients like passion, great characters, an intricate amusing and enjoyable plot coupled with the tall dark, handsome and feathered angels - mmmm you just can't go wrong.
Thought the narrator was ok but I listened on double speed because I couldn't wait, well that and there's just so many delicious books waiting to be heard and such little time.
Worth a credit? If you're a GS fan then you already know the answer - it's a big fat YES and I'm waiting for more please.
If you're not really a fan of the paranormal/romance genre, and you don't like a passion filled plot that has funny one-liners given by some brilliant..Show More » loveable characters such as the hero - a sexy tortured tormented fragile virgin whose destiny is to fall in love with an equally fragile tormented heroine that's being stalked by death - which has heartbreaking consequences. Or, if you dislike a storyline that's filled with thrills, action and adventure but is also tender, touching and full of personal sacrifice - then go no further and stop reading this review - BUT, for those of you who do.......
Then you're in for a treat as I am sure you're really going to enjoy GS's second fantastical instalment about the lives of an imperfect group of Angels that have been given another chance at redemption of their past sins before they fall from grace. However, in order to be redeemed they must make amends which involves fighting evil in the form of minions, demons and any ungodly creature that GS's talented mind can throw into the mix to give us a good mental visualisation of each of the addictive paranormal encounters.
This could be a stand alone listen (but come on - why deny yourselves), there's sexual chemistry but it only has one mild sex scene in it and the book has a clear message that positive thinking can, and did, work magic.
Worth a credit? It's a YES, yippee and it was a yabberdabberdoo time listen....... and I'm hoping for many many more.
Gena Showalter always gives a story full of action, adventure, romance, sex, friendship and humor. I enjoyed this book, but it wasn't without its fl..Show More »aws. I wasn't always a fan of Thane's. Not that I didn't like him, I just didn't like all the stuff he did even after Elin came into the picture. Like Pain's book from LOU series, Thane's sex life was disturbing. I understand why he was like that, I just don't have to like it. Luckily when he gets together with Elin it wasn't a BDSM session. My other problem with this book is I sometimes couldn't tell when Elin was speaking or having an inner dialog in her head and at times I was amazed she would say certain stuff, then I realized she was only thinking it. This of course could have been fixed it the narrator had altered her voice for her inner self. I have always enjoyed Max Bellmore, he has a sexy voice.
