4.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced, dangerous paranormal romance, 18 Jan. 2012

This review is from: Key of Solomon (Relic Defender) (Kindle Edition)
Key of Solomon is the first book in the Relic Defender series by Cassiel Knight. Lexi Harrison is a loner. She's studying for a PhD and belly dances in a local strip club to earn money towards her degree. Then, one night, a customer turns up and turns her world upside down. Before she knows it, Lexi has been introduced to someone claiming to be an angel, and told that she has an important destiny - to save the human race.

Mikos Tyomni is the angel - of the fallen variety - who must convince Lexi of her heritage and help her to do what it takes to stop Hell's deadliest demons from breaking out of their magical prison. The trouble is, Lexi finds it hard to trust, so Mikos must try to break down those barriers and restore her faith in others, before it's too late.

Key of Solomon is a great paranormal read. Lexi is a kick-ass heroine, and Mikos is a smokin' hot fallen angel. The tension between them sizzles throughout; particularly as Lexi has stone walls erected around her heart, and Mikos is strictly forbidden to get close to a mortal woman. A relationship between them would be about as taboo as it gets, and yet, there's an attraction that they can't seem to ignore...

Overall, Key of Solomon is a gripping, action-packed book with some sensuality and humour thrown in for good measure. I enjoyed the twists and turns and was constantly on the edge of my seat, dying to find out what happened next. If you like fast-paced, dangerous paranormal romances, then you should definitely add this to your to be read list.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing Read!, 28 Oct. 2011

This review is from: Key of Solomon (Relic Defender) (Kindle Edition)
Lexi has everything all planned out. Working hard to obtain her college degree by day and belly dancing by night, Lexi is determined to stay on the path she wants. With her heart locked up tight, nothing will make her feel again. Through a series of unfortunate events during her childhood, including the loss of her parents, Lexi has lost all faith in herself and humanity as a whole.

Mikos is an angel with a past. After falling from grace, he has worked non-stop to get back in the good graces of the powers that be. Just one task remains for him to complete and then his desire to return to heaven will be granted. What should be an easy task, makes a turn for the worst when he must convince Lexi that she is the Defender; a heritage that has been bestowed upon her by her deceased parents. Not only is Lexi head strong, stubborn and unwilling to bend, but she has an irresistible pull that Mikos can not ignore. Allowing himself to be with Lexi is not only forbidden but will ruin everything he has worked so hard to obtain.

In the majority of books that I have read that focus on the battle between good and evil...there are only angels against demons. God versus Satan. Ms. Knight takes the path least traveled and adds various aspects from Pagan spiritual paths and Mythology into the pages of Relic Defender: Key of Solomon. It was so refreshing to read about various aspects of other spiritual paths rather than focusing solely on main-stream religions.

If you like books that contain steamy angels and sexual tension that radiates off of the pages...I highly recommend Relic Defender: Key of Solomon by Cassiel Knight!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lexi is a great protagonist, one that really proves her worth in ..., 14 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Key of Solomon (Relic Defender) (Kindle Edition)
I read the first book in this series for this tour. I must say it was a refreshing change to some of the other paranormal books I’ve been reading. It was kind of a Lara Croft Tomb Raider mash-up with a paranormal romance. Lexi is a great protagonist, one that really proves her worth in the first book, as someone you want to see do well.

From a writer’s perspective, I have a bit of a pet peave about starting books with the character’s name. It’s not a huge error or anything, but as a writer myself I prefer to have the start of a book more of a delicate weave than just an info dump of back story – however, this is just me and there are probably many others who don’t see it that way. There were some lovely turns of phrase in there and the whole book was paced well and had some very well-thought out characters in – which does make a difference.

The front cover is okay, but has Mikos on there rather than Lexi, although I see that this is changed for book two, I still think she deserved to be front and centre.

Overall, I’d give Key of Solomon 4 out of 5 stars, a solid read with a great story line – I’m looking forward to reading book two.
