Publisher's Summary

Human - angel - Nephilim. How can Riley fit in anywhere when he doesn’t know who or what he is?

With his mysterious heritage shrouded in shadow, Riley Shepard struggles with his identity, his confusing sexuality, and the prohibited - but deepening - feelings for his guardian angels. Questions remain unanswered. His guardians harbor secrets. And danger lurks just out of sight.

When disaster strikes, Riley must make a choice that will change everything. But will his sacrifice destroy the life he’s built? Will there be anything left when the dust settles?

To him, it makes no difference. Because for them, it is worth the risk.

Sacrifice is the second book in the slow-burn harem/poly romance series Fire & Brimstone, featuring hurt/comfort, temptingly sexy guardian angels, forbidden love, and an unlikely hero who discovers what it means to be free. 

Trigger warnings include: situations of homophobia (both external and internal), violence with low-level gore, and sexual assault.

More Gripping & Fascinating Awesomeness!

I loved the first book of this series and this second book is just as awesome! Nikole Knight is a gifted author with a brilliantly creative mind, she created a fascinating world with equally fascinating supernatural beings. Riley story continues in this second book picking up where the first book left off. We watched Riley grow a little more confident in the first book, he still had a way to go and he is put to the test in this book and the author does not hold back at all. Riley is growing closer to his appointed guardian angels, Noel, Jai and Gideon, maybe too close, because the lines that were drawn start to fade away in this book. I am loving who Riley is becoming as he grows into his own person, he was still questioning his own wants and needs but he learns what that is in this book and who. We also learn what he is and I can’t wait to find out more about him and am looking forward to joining him on his journey as he finds out more himself. I saw what he saw in the mirror, can’t wait to see what that is all about. My heart was torn from my chest, I will not say how or why but it was gut wrenching. This amazing fantasy paranormal romance novel is brilliantly plotted with plenty of drama, a touch of angst, action, twists and turns, mystery, thrilling suspense, heartfelt emotions and a slow burn romance. Nikole Knight, thank you for another awesome story, I am loving every minute of this series, the characters and storylines are enjoyable, entertaining and absolutely amazing.

🎧📚🎧 Kirt Graves is a wonderfully talented narrator and a versatile voice artist. He continues to deliver outstanding performances as he brings these characters and their story to life. He is exceptional at portraying the characters, giving each their own distinct voice and personality, he choses voices that suit each character perfectly and handles the back-and-forth dialogue with ease, switching roles effortlessly without missing a beat. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen🎧

Well that got dark

To quote Sam from Lord of the Rings, “It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. Full of darkness, and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened?”

Story was interesting, but I had to fast forward in some parts. It just hurt too much to listen… :(

A Gripping and Powerful Development

"You stay, we stay. That's how it works, that's how it's always worked."

Fair warning, this book delves into much darker territory which is saying something considering the hell Riley has been through. Kirt brought such emotion to the characters and each one underwent some serious development, for better or worse. Lots of realizing feelings for all the angels and Riley, and exploring some new characters.

When angels fall in love with their ward

Omg! Riley and his guardian angels are back and I’m one very happy listener to listen their continued journey. We witnessed the heartache and struggles young Riley had to face and now he might be facing the biggest challenge of his life.

Riley finally learned what he truly was and he has to face with how to control his impulses and his power. While his angels are fighting for him and protecting him, he also had a minor fall out with them when they found out he went on a date behind his back. But they did find a balance for all of them amidst all these struggles and we got a satisfying answer for Riley and his yummy guardian angels. At east for now. I’m so excited to see what Riley will face in the future and how the relationship between him and his guardian angels will grow. As always, Kirt Graves’s narration was super yummy.

Great Listen

I enjoyed this book even more than the first story. In Sacrifice Riley undergoes such an amazing character development and growth that it takes story to a new level of captivating. I loved following his relationship with guardians and people in his life. Narrator did a great job telling this story, his voice and talent made this book a perfect listening experience. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Great Addition to Series

This is definitely a slow-burn romance but so worth reading and listening to. Can't wait for book 3 to be narrated.

It gets better and better

Captivating book with a lovely twist to the Angel and demon stories. It’s a type of book that fills you with warm anticipation and you can’t put it down. Beautifully written. And Kirt’s narration is out of this world good.

A real punch to the heart

After a deceptively slow start, Riley and his guardians took me one on one heck of an emotional journey. I had a feeling that things weren't going to be smooth sailing as Riley learned more about his identity and grappled with his growing feelings for Noel and Jai, but wow was I not expecting the direction this story went. From Ms. Janet's horrible reappearance to the heartwrenching sacrifice Noel made to keep Riley safe, this story didn't pull any punches. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire second half of this audio, desperately waiting to see if everything would turn out okay but knowing, deep in my heart, that nothing in Riley's life would ever be the same again. I can't believe how much raw emotion Kirt Graves was able to portray in those tense, unsure moments, but he really made me feel like I was a part of the journey. Even as Nikole crushed my heart into a thousand pieces, I couldn't tear myself away. I've already become so invested in Riley, Jai, Noel, and Gideon's lives that the thought of leaving their series unfinished is impossible for me, even during the most painful moments. I still know so little about Riley's identity and how he fits in with the angels and demons conflict, but this story gave me a small taste of just how far the demons are prepared to go to flip his loyalty. This audio went to a much darker place than the last one, and I can already tell that the emotional scars of this experience are going to leave a lasting impact.

**I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this book. This review expresses my honest thoughts and opinions.

Oh Wow!

Trigger Warning: Torture and sexual assault of a main character. It's off-page, but still very much there.

I loved this audiobook, even through all the dark, painful parts. Riley is growing and maturing, slowly discovering his sexuality, as he overcomes the years of abuse and repression suffered at the hands of his foster mother. She had trauma of her own, but her behavior makes it hard to sympathize with her. This 'scroll' of the story has drama, trauma, suspense, even some really funny bits and exchanges. We learn more about Riley and who (and what) he really is, and why the darkness wants him. There is the Sacrifice alluded to by the title and it is terrible and painful. Hopefully, the found family of Riley and his angels can recover. I am hooked waiting for the next audiobook.

I have to say I am appreciating this story more in audiobooks than I did reading it. The written word seemed to drag a bit for me, but the audiobooks with Kirt Graves narration really bring the story to life for me, especially all the dramatic, emotional parts. Excellent job!

I received a free copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

Getting better as it goes

Even better than the first. Great world-building, character development, and dynamics. This journey likes different but is one we’ve all known. The journey to true self free of outside forces can be harrowing. It is well represented here. Narration is good. I did listen at a higher speed.

The story darkens

Here is the book where Riley seriously has to start to learn about and use his powers to save both the world and someone dear to him. The world building focuses more on angel and demon power structures and it is fascinating. I love it that the author focuses on a slightly different aspect of the world in each book, never neglecting the whole, but filling in the tapestry in different areas in more detail. This is a much darker book with more emotional pain that I found in the previous one but I am still hooked and will definitely continue to follow this series. Kirt Graves gives a wonderful performance here. For the characters he makes you feel their tension, fear and pain and in the descriptive passages he ensures you never lose interest in the amazing world being created.

Found family

Riley is struggling with everything that has happened in such a short time.
He has powers and he's also unsure what if anything he should do about his newfound feelings and sexuality.
This is slow burn, to the point of practically no burn and that's as it should be due to Riley's trauma.
This was wonderful to see everyone begin to bond and become more cohesive as a group.
Of course danger still lurks around every corner and seeing Riley make a sacrifice was heartbreaking and had me on the edge if my seat.
Kirt Graves has done an amazing job of bringing this beautiful world to life

Willing To Sacrifice Everything For Each Other.

MMMM gay paranormal harem/poly, slow burn romance, needs to be listened read in series order for full understanding and maximum enjoyment of a complex plot. Action and violence throughout, with angst and despair. Riley's three guardians are as determined as ever to keep their ward safe. But with danger lurking this is an extremely difficult task. Riley has been left traumatised from abuse throughout his childhood that his guardians had been left powerless to stop due to their orders, they are united in the decision that they will do anything to protect Riley from coming to harm again. They are finding it hard to keep things uncomplicated and platonic. Great world building and great characters and a brilliantly intense story. narrated brilliantly by Kirt Graves.

Riley’s journey with his angels

This second book keeps getting better. Riley is still very virginal and his crush on his angels kept in secret. There are forces that want him, because he is not merely human, he is a nephilim and not just that. His guardians have to make sacrifices to protect him, and that was a sad moment but he protects them back. I can not wait for the next one as Mr Graves does a great job narrating doing many voices smoothly.

Oh my goodness it just keeps getting better

I was hooked on the series immediately upon starting book 1 - the world building and characters hooked me in immediately. Riley is a character that just worms his way into your heart and I can definitely see why Jai, Noel and Gideon care for him so much. Sacrifice is the continuation of their story and how they’ve become family. The bond between them all just grows and grows as does Riley’s understanding about the world that he has found himself in.

The end of this story definitely gets darker as a sacrifice is made, and my heart broke in places - both for the character the who sacrifices themselves and the others who have to deal with this and mount a rescue for their lost family member.

We meet more characters, learn more about the world Riley finds himself in and more about Riley himself. There’s good characters and evil, and so many topics are broached (please heed the trigger warnings) but also handled head on and well.

The narration is as enjoyable as the first book...and I need more!
