Publisher's Summary

Between the pissed off creatures that want demon-hunter Lily Marks dead and the fallen angel who just.... wants her, Lily is about ready to trade forever for a comfy job in a cubicle farm. The fact that she and Julian are civil to one another is enough to have her thrown out of the Sanctuary, but she can't shake her not-so-angelic stalker or how he brings her dangerously close to ecstasy.

Her forbidden relationship with Julian provides the perfect fuel for suspicion when a traitor is discovered to be working within the Sanctuary. Lily quickly finds herself hunted by well, everyone. Her only hope is to discover the real traitor before she loses everything - and she'll need Julian's help. That is, if Julian is really there to help her - and not destroy her.

Yeah, being a Nephilim isn't everything it's cracked up to be.

would love for this to become a series...

There are so many places this could go as a series. I really liked this book and would love to hear Michaels story finished out.

Great start to a possible series

It appears this is the only book written in the Nephilim Rising series, sadly. It is a very well written fallen angel based story with fully developed characters and emotional relationships. Truly a gifted romance novelist.

Gimme My Microscope... There must be a story here somewhere

I wanted to like this book. I kept trying. I put it down (proverbially after all this is an audiobook) and would come back thinking I must have made a mistake. Nope.

There is an outlying set up and I got all excited and then wham! All that happens is guilt sex. Over and over and over....
There was a lot of 'his member" and other such euphemisms. What happened to the story I wanted to hear about this special demon killer?

Not as good as her other books (IMO)

I've read many of Jennifer Armentrout's books and loved them all, so I assumed I'd love this one. (All of the Covenant, Lux, and Dark Elements series) I was excited that this book was categorized as adult instead of young adult, so it wouldn't be about teenagers for once.

Unfortunately, I didn't love this book. It's decent, but there was no depth. It didn't make me care about the characters the way her other books did. The book has a lot of very descriptive steamy sex scenes (which is ok, I realize it's a romance book), but didn't have enough of a story line outside of that. There wasn't much of an emotional connection between the main characters. The only connection between the main two characters was sex, and there wasn't much going on with the supporting characters either. There was no one that I hated or loved. I just didn't feel like I knew much about them. The story did pick up in the last two chapters, but that's a long time to wait!
