Winding along, twisting and turning, the heroine isn't your typical good girl, and the hero isn't your typical good guy, and there's a definite reason why the angels have fallen. But this story is hot, as hot as the Brotherhood stories but in a slightly different way. I don't want to give any spoilers (esp since it looks like I'm the first review) so I shall simply say to stick with it, this story WILL drag you in, and you WILL find yourself turning pages quicker and quicker. Well worth the bags under my eyes caused by staying up way past my bedtime to finish it.
I'm off to re-read Rehvenge - looks like I might have to wait a little while before the next J R Ward book but they are most definitely always worth the wait!
In book one Jim's target for salvation is Vin Di Pietro, a successful but shady businessman who has succumbed to greed; coveting the possessions he has accumulated and the beautiful woman he has in his life. Yet Vin is not totally lost, and the only person who seems able to understand the strange events happening around him is a man who claims he is here to help save his soul.
Of course as an avid fan of this author's BDB books, I cannot help but make comparisons between these two series. Jim and his angelic cohorts are physically similar to the BDB vampire warriors and have the same kick a** attitude when it comes to fighting the bad guys. As they certainly have no problems with violence or sex, the emphasis is definitely on Fallen rather than angel when it comes to labelling this new breed of hero. There are the odd touches of humour I expect from this author; namely Jim receiving divine messages from the television whilst the story line is almost breathtaking; its multitude of sub plots creating an intense, twisting, action fuelled novel capable of satisfying any adrenaline junkie.
The initial action is somewhat slow paced at the beginning of this book as the author sets the scene, but expect to be blown away once the real battle begins.Read more ›
The two main characters are Jim Heron an ex-military man who is recruited by the good guys but still endorsed by the bad guys as he is capable of profound caring as well as extreme violence, and Vincent di Pietro, a man with a single minded drive to succeed and acquire riches. There are some very humerous moments and the same acronym driven language used in this author's other series, the Black Dagger Brotherhood, but most of these you can figure out with some common sense, although as a Brit, some exlusively US cultural references are lost on me.
The story sets a good pace from the start and a lot of it concentrates on the romance aspect which is central to the story line. Once the action kicks in though (near the last third of the book) the book is unputdownable and I have to say that J R Ward is one the few romance writers who handles her actions scenes with as much skill as her explicit scenes. The references and hints to the next story make me impatient for the next installment as it looks like it will be another explosive read. This genre is well used and old but Ward's new series has definitely established a place for itself.
A word of warning for readers. At the end of this book is an excerpt from the new BDB novel 'Lover Mine' which I advise you not to read if you haven't read Rehvenge's novel (Lover Avenged) yet, as it contains spoilers which might ruin Rev's book for you. It mentions some plot points which i would have prefered to have found out while reading the book.
