Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Gena Showalter returns with another captivating Angels of the Dark tale, as a tormented warrior is brought to his knees by the most delicate of humans.
His name is Koldo. He is scarred, powerful, his control legendary - and he lives only for vengeance against the angel who viciously removed his wings. But if he yields to the forces of hatred, he will be eternally damned.
Nicola Lane was born with a defective heart, yet this fragile human shows surprising strength as demons stalk her every move, determined to end her. She is the key to Koldo' deliverance...and his downfall. Though he fights duty, destiny, and his first addictive taste of desire, his toughest battle will be the one for Nicola's life - even if he has to sacrifice his own....

Awesomelicious - it's happy & sad as good vs bad

If you're not really a fan of the paranormal/romance genre, and you don't like a passion filled plot that has funny one-liners given by some brilliant loveable characters such as the hero - a sexy tortured tormented fragile virgin whose destiny is to fall in love with an equally fragile tormented heroine that's being stalked by death - which has heartbreaking consequences. Or, if you dislike a storyline that's filled with thrills, action and adventure but is also tender, touching and full of personal sacrifice - then go no further and stop reading this review - BUT, for those of you who do.......

Then you're in for a treat as I am sure you're really going to enjoy GS's second fantastical instalment about the lives of an imperfect group of Angels that have been given another chance at redemption of their past sins before they fall from grace. However, in order to be redeemed they must make amends which involves fighting evil in the form of minions, demons and any ungodly creature that GS's talented mind can throw into the mix to give us a good mental visualisation of each of the addictive paranormal encounters.

This could be a stand alone listen (but come on - why deny yourselves), there's sexual chemistry but it only has one mild sex scene in it and the book has a clear message that positive thinking can, and did, work magic.

Worth a credit? It's a YES, yippee and it was a yabberdabberdoo time listen....... and I'm hoping for many many more.

Disappointing Follow-On to Book 1

I am a huge Gena Showalter fan, and I loved book 1 (Wicked Nights) and was very excited to listen to Koldo's story. Koldo is such an amazing character - powerful, scarred, complex, deep, totally HOT. The heroine, Nicola was a total disappointment - weak, pathetic, sickly, fragile. She did not gain any character or interest until the last chapter of the book, and then suddenly she turns into a superhero - NOT believable. There was just no way I could buy that a strong character like Koldo could find any interest in a weak character like Nicola. It totally fell flat and there was NO chemistry between the characters. Also, I'm not sure what Showalter has going on in her personal life, but this book had a lot of religious overtones, and it felt like she was preaching to us in every chapter. It is a total 180 from Lords of the Underworld. Despite this, I'll still listen to the next book in the series.. I just hope it is more like Book 1!
