3.0 out of 5 stars Rather dull 23 Mar 2013
I am a big gena fan, however I found this book and the two main characters insipid and dull. Yes I felt sorry for koldo he had a shocking childhood, but I never really got past that, he didnt excite me at all. As for Nicola?! Boring and weak.
Axel was funny, I was more interested in Thane when he appeared. Very predicable.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars - "Beauty Awakened" by Gena Showalter 28 Feb 2013
Gena Showalter has done it again, she has made me fall in love with her characters again and fallen in love with a book I had a hard time putting down.

"Beauty Awakened" is the second installment to the Angels of the Dark series and it definitely was worth every month, day, minute, and second to wait for it. I literally fell in love with Koldo from the first page and felt for him even though I know he is fictional, but to me, he came to life due to the way Gena writes her stories.

Koldo has literally never been loved. His mother hated him since the day he was conceived and his father tortured him the minute his mother gave him up to his father. His mother was the one who took his beautiful wings from him and his father put him situations where he had to do things he was ashamed of. Ever since his hatred toward both of his parents, he has chosen to take revenge on his mother and hoped he killed his father when he did.
He has craved to be just like the other Sent Ones, but he believes he has been punished for what he has done in his past thanks to what his parents endured him to do.
The minute he comes across Nicola, his life is about to change. He will learn that love does exist and he is capable of positive things.
Nicola has been suffering with the darkness around her since the beginning. Her twin, Laila is dying at the hospital and Nicola is not far behind. When she is given another chance at life and saving her sister's life, she chooses to let the light in, instead of the dark. She knew something was making her feel sick, but never knew what it was, until she comes across the sexy stranger who she talks to in the elevator. Koldo chooses to help Nicola because he is intrigued with her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking, Funny, Action-Packed and Sexy! 27 Feb 2013
BEAUTY AWAKENED, the 2nd installment of Gena Showalter's Angels of the Dark series is finally here and it was so worth the wait!

The book starts off with a young Koldo at the age of 7 years old. This was by far the most heartbreaking chapter I have ever read. A little boy starved for his mother's attention and love and getting nothing but hatred and abuse in return. No matter what he did to please her, she hated him and punished him more. We finally learn what happened to Koldo's wings and I sat here with a box of tissues balling my eyes out through this chapter. We also find out who his father is and I just can't decide who was worse, his mother or father. I finally decided they were both just as equally horrible. Poor Koldo!

Koldo is a warrior in Zacharel's Army of Disgrace, a group of warrior angels that are in danger of falling. I loved Koldo when he was introduced in WICKED NIGHTS but now he has my heart forever. I'm a sucker for the tortured souls and we all know Koldo went through torture when we learned his wings were removed but in this book we learn the full extent of the hell and anguish he went through. Koldo was the warrior with few words and no emotions, but he does have emotions. He just covers them up and pretends to not care because he is scared of rejection. Through everything that he has been through he still fights for what's right and he's a hero which he proved in WICKED NIGHTS when he made huge sacrifices to save his leader Zacharel. When he learns to open up and discovers his feelings for Nicola he is also very possessive but in a sweet, melt your heart kind of way.

Nicola and her twin sister Laila were born premature and with underdeveloped hearts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read 15 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read this before but read again in view of the release of Burning Dawn. I really enjoyed the book and the story line. I liked Koldo in the first book and it was good to find out about his future. Unlike the other books by Gena, I found this quite predictable. Maybe because I had read it before. I would fully recommend if you are a fan of Gena. She never really disappoints.

4.0 out of 5 stars I do like it but..... 16 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's a good story & has some great set ups for the next books to come but, and pardon the pun, it's a bit angelic compared to the Lords of the Underworld series. He may be a 1st timer but he defo needs to get some tips from the Lords......badly

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth buying. 28 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't normally write bad reviews, but...

I guess it's my own fault for buying a book about angels, but I didn't expect this book to be so rampantly religious. I especially didn't appreciate the whole "sick-people-aren't-really-sick-they-just-think-they-are"-thing. Sickness as demon-possession? Seriously, what is this? The Dark Ages?

Also, not very well written. There are ways to make the old "big, hulking, dark hero and tiny, frail, pale heroine" cliché work, but this is not it.
