Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best - but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option---even if the task is impossible. Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.

Why do babies have lopsided smiles? Why are so many people's eyes misaligned? What started as a simple search to understand this phenomenon turned into a two-year quest that uncovered hidden links between our crooked faces and some of the most puzzling diseases of our time. Crooked methodically goes through the most recent scientific research and connects the dots from the outbreak of metallic medicine in 1800s England to the eruption of neurological and autoimmune disorders so many are suffering from today.

This book is well written! Same excellence as Forrest’s videos on you tube “My incredible opinion.”

If only doctors were allowed to think, they made be able to start working on solutions for getting people’s lives back.

If you look around, you can’t miss the crooked faces and lopsided grins and offset eyes. I really hope someone looks into this because if it’s true forest will get a Nobel prize, and are scientists and doctors of the stage will go down in history for creating the dark ages for humanity through their ignorance and arrogance.

I want to buy one for every single doctor I know, and deliver it to them

As our holistic view of the world grows and we become more aware of personal and collective energy, our level of perception is transforming from something singular - the physical form - to a greatly expanded awareness that includes intuition, past and present, right and left brain, and heart and body. As our perceptive ability evolves, we must unlearn and relearn the principles of how we live, create, and grow in order to be successful in the rapidly transforming reality of the Intuition Age.

Naasir is the most feral of the powerful group of vampires and angels known as the Seven, his loyalty pledged to the Archangel Raphael. When rumors surface of a plot to murder the former archangel of Persia, now lost in the Sleep of the Ancients, Naasir is dispatched to find him. For only he possesses the tracking skills required - those more common to predatory animals than to man. Enlisted to accompany Naasir, Andromeda, a young angelic scholar with dangerous secrets, is fascinated by his nature.

Would you consider the audio edition of Archangel's Enigma to be better than the print version?

N/ a

What was one of the most memorable moments of Archangel's Enigma?

Learning all of Nassar's story. Hearing about how loved and protected he was by Dmitri, Raphael and his teacher. This book brought me to tears many times . Nalini has a way of bringing such heart to her writings.

What about Justine Eyreโ€™s performance did you like?

I can't believe that her one voice does all of those characters- great job!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I have 3 kids-- I don't get to listen to anything in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

After finishing this book-- I had to listen to it again. Nassar is my favorite. I love the way he thinks- Nalini did a good job - again!
