Series: Olde City Angels #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal
Publication Date: July 13, 2015
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
This was a very fast-paced, action-packed read. The writing was beautiful and addictive. It sucked you in from the very beginning. I have read my fair share of angel stories but this one is so refreshingly original that I could not put it down.
This story surprised me. I excepted more of a YA Fantasy type but was pleasantly surprised to find it leaning more toward the paranormal romance side with an epic love triangle between a human, an angel and a vampire.
The heroine Eva is a guardian angel that really sucks at being a guardian angel. She is given one more chance. Her mission is to save the Fae princess from the Demon Prince.
Assigned to Eva as her angel liaison, Thomas first impression of the angel is less than flattering. He blames her for his uncles death but is forced to work side by side with her to save the princess.
In comes Soren. The vampire that killed her last wards. She should resent him. She should despise him. She should but she can’t.
I had been there the from the very moment he was turned vampire, and it seemed we were destined to be thrown together, time and again no matter how painful it was for me.
Now forced to work along side him and the Other-Worlders they team up to stop the Demon Prince. All the while her and Thomas’s bond grows stronger and stronger. Then BAM! This HUGE things happens that I can’t tell you about because it would ruin the entire book for you. All I can say is wow. I was crying.
Then the ending is another WOW. I’m telling you this book rocks. I can’t wait to start reading the next one. Highly recommend.
Favorite Scene: When they fight Paimon
Until today I thought I loved him, but he didn’t complete me the way Thomas did, and Thomas had just been my friend. I knew I deserved more. Soren was death and destruction rolled into a pretty package.
A young brunette was positioned on Soren’s lap, fresh blood trickling down her neck. As soon as he saw me, he pushed her off and stood. The girl didn’t seem to care. She was still high from his bite.
Soren looked to the girl. “Leave.” The words came out clipped and angry. His cheeks were flushed from feeding, I looked at the girl, wondering, but I wasn’t drawn to her. She wasn’t my charge. I did wonder if I had been sent to save Elsie from Soren. My entire being would know the moment I saw Elsie. George used to call it my angel voodoo.
He moved toward me fast. The energy coming from him was like a lightening storm, and I wanted to be in the middle, letting his rain envelope me. Getting too close would mean being struck by his lightening. Everyone close to him always ended up scorched.
