WHAT A GREAT START TO A NEW SERIES

This is a fantastic start to a series, it has lots of hot archangels, a villain you can't help but like, romance, humour and a surprise or two!

The narrator was really good, there were conversations between women and four or five men with different accents which he seemed to pull off with ease. I think his performance only added to an already good book.

Can't wait for the next three books!!!

Press the 'add to cart' button, it's 12 hrs 45mins of Heaven.

Interesting concept spoiled by flaws

I was eager to read this and so wanted it to be a good story but it was just so problematic from the beginning that I have to disagree from a lot of these reviews. First, before I get into the actual story, who edited this? One moment the big even they HAVE to go to is on Thursday, then it's on Saturday, then it's back to Thursday. BASIC EDITING ERROR. Seriously. And that was just the beginning.

The author established the heroine as a street-smart chick who's managed to evade an FBI-CIA style crew for a decade yet the moment she gets involved in the hot mess Uriel brings, she becomes completely clueless and continuously acts against character. A lot of her distrust is forced just to make the story work to the point that I wondered if she was just a brainless twit who thought herself a savvy powerwoman.

The archangels. Ugh. First, let's get it straight that 2000 BC wasn't 2000 years ago, nor was it when cavemen were running around - Egypt was in full swing and Stonehenge was supposedly finished by this time. Also, the Scots language developed about 1000 years ago give or take a few decades so having one of the angels speak with a clear Scottich dialect makes no sense - we all know you just wanted Gerard Butler to be in the movie. Speaking of accents, America is about a fifth of that age so Michael shouldn't be running around sounding like Dennis Leary.

Meanwhile, they behave like immature college guys who don't know the meaning of reading the fine print before signing a deal with the devil. I'd hope 4000 (not 2) would give them more brainpower. Oh, and because they're ARCHANGELS. Not to mention all the angels are amazingly perfect in every way and have a Dr. Who style house that spans the dimensions of space, manned by a MegaButler named Max.

I really really wanted this to be a good book but it had too many flaws and no meat on the bone. The narrator was okay but not great, and overall even the good aspects were outweighted by thte bad. Read Nalini Singh instead.
