When we first met Zacharel in the Darkest Secret I was intrigued, how could an Angel be so deliciously sexy and dare I say wicked? When you think Angel I automatically think good, pure and innocent. I don't think warrior angels who think nothing of taking a human life in the battle of good versus evil.

Zacharel has made mistakes and in retaliation he has been charged with ruling an army of likeminded angels who are all perilously close to falling. Can he redeem them and himself? Does he even want to? Even if the punishment is severe...

Annabelle is an interesting character, she has been through a lot and is still standing that says a lot about the strength of her character. A weaker woman would be a drooling mess in a padded cell.

I loved the chemistry between Zacharel and Annabelle, their strengths and weaknesses compliment each other well. I was firmly in their corner from the beginning.

Gena never disappoints, as always the love scenes were tantalisingly hot and the battle scenes were both viscious and satisfying. I can't wait for the next installment to find out more about the angels from the little glimpses Koldo's story is going to be an emotional journey.

I ultimately decided to give it a 3 star, i was considering a 4 but based on genas other work, this is a pale comparison.

Zacharel, hard faced leader of the angels, is nto a nice man, he has no emotion, compassion, empathy, nohting, to describe him you could literally say he is a slab of ice and that would be the most accurate escription.

However, as with all of the lords gena likes to pair them off with their one true mate and poor old zacharel doesnt really ahve much of a choice, enter soul mate Annabelle.

Half Japanese, half america with captivating eyes and earmarked as a demons consort, Zacharel discovers annabelle in a mental institution and because he just had been whipped severely by his deity for killing humans, he decides he is going to take this human to his cloud and look after her.

Snoozefest alert.

Zach develops feelings, falls in love, literally within the space of half a chapter and then goes on this caveman mission to demand she can never be with anyone else blah blah blah.

Snooze.

A few of the lords pop up in the book along with Bianka and Kaia and Lysander, but not for long and not forever as Lucien makes a rather dramatic statement about 2/3rds fo the way in that makes it pretty clear that Zachs association with the lords is over.

All of that said the most interesting bit for me was Thane, Xerxes, Bjorn and Koldo, Axel, oh and Jamilia, all Angels, all with very interesting stories to tell im sure.

Personally if you are hoping for more of the same like the LOTU books you are going to be massively disappointed, it doesn't hold the same level of descriptiveness, prowse, passion or steam.

To be honest, i felt really let down.

It seems there are mixed reviews about this book and whilst I really did love it, it's not the best Gena book I've read but as I've said I still really really enjoyed it. I've been wondering when Zacharel would be getting his own book as he has been mentioned in a few of The Lords of the Underworld books and quite heavily in the last book The Darkest Seduction (Paris') and it obviously transpires that the Angel's are getting their own series which I look forward to reading the rest of.
The book is about Zacharel who we discovered in The Darkest Seduction now has snow falling from his wings and we find out in this book that it is to show the Deity's displeasure in his actions as he has not been valuing human life when that human happens to be possessed by a Demon. Zacharel has been put in charge of his own army of Angels all of whom have been in the Deity's bad books for one reason or another and all who have one year to prove that they are in fact worth saving and keeping as Angels rather than letting them fall and lose their wings. We then meet the love interest of Zacharel in the form of Annabelle who witnessed her parents brutal murder at the hands of a Demon and who then was imprisoned for the crime as no-one believed that a Demon killed them. Annabelle has been locked up in an insane asylum and has regular visits from Demons there who have been sent to try and hurt her but that no-one else (human) can see and therefore she is obviously deemed as more nuts than ever. Zacharel and his army are sent to find out why a whole load of Demons are permanently based outside the insane asylum trying to get in and after slaughtering them all Zacharel discovers the reason is Annabelle and that she is marked as a Demon's consort.

I bought this book because I really enjoyed the LOTU series but I was quite disappointed. Sure, Annabelle was interesting and she seemed like a good match for Zacharel, but while I got through the LOTU books in a couple of days (sometimes in a couple of hours) this took a good few weeks. The sex scenes are much tamer (and therefore... boring). I don't think I'll buy the rest in the series.

UPDATE: I did end up reading the others in the series (once a Gena fan, always a Gena fan). The sequels were definitely better than this one, though it was nice to see Annabelle and Zacharel pop up every so often in the other books too.
