Tempting taster of the Renegade Angels trilogy
on 4 November 2011
I'd heard the blurb about the RA series, but wasn't sure about buying the books, as although I like Sylvia Day's historical novels, I've not read any of her other stuff, really. The new series combines Angels, Lycans and Vampires (the latter are apparently, Fallen Angels) all vying for supremacy, and this was a good intro.
This is the tale of Raze, a secondary vampire character in the RA series, which came out at the same time as the first full-length RA novel, A Touch Of Crimson. We're told he's having an extended sex session at the start of the tale, when a dead body is dumped at his doorstep, bearing the kill-signature of a long-dead vampire and so he's off to the clubs of Chicago to investigate.
There's violence and fighting and it looks as if Raze is being set up, but all of that goes out of his head when he meets human Kim in a bar, who propositions him with a night of sex, no strings attached...but they find something a lot deeper and more meaningful than either of them had anticipated, and Kim becomes the chance for one of Raze's old enemies to gain revenge...
It was a quick, fast-paced read, with hot sex, and decent characters, which made me decide that I will be checking out the full-length novels, the first of which features the leader of the Angels, Adrian.
