Publisher's Summary

Leda Pierce is working as a paranormal bounty hunter on the Frontier, the dividing line between human civilization and the plains of monsters. Life is simple and the pay modest, but at least she has her family. That is, until a vampire hunt goes wrong and her brother goes missing, captured by the dark angels of hell.
With no magical powers of her own and no way to find him, Leda's only option is to go to New York and join the Legion of Angels, an elite unit of supernatural soldiers with powers gifted to them by the gods themselves. If she can survive long enough to make it up the ranks, she will gain the magic she needs to find her brother.
But Leda soon finds herself on the wrong side of a conspiracy that will shake up the supernatural world - and at the mercy of a fiercely powerful and tempting angel.

Cute, But not Buying It

I think this is an interesting premise, but it is written very much like the main charter is a teenager. Some of the characters are way over powered, but then the lowest of the low can take them out. Of course that leads our heroine to dramatically save the day.

I will be returning this book and not continuing the series.

Nice idea, bad narration, worst story

Is anyone "human"? Not in the actual sense of the term but emotionally? None of these characters are "people". Her brother gets kidnapped in answer to this the heroine joins the military to get stronger. But she also goes to at least two clubs to have fun, has time for hurt feelings over guys, and has picked a path that will take time to climb up the ranks before she can even go find him. What?! Why are there no deep periods of inner turmoil that she is leaving him to a possibly horrible fate while she eats and sleeps in comfort?

Don't worry it's not just her though. Any character that is on screen for more than 2-3 chapters is an emotionless monster. Like the childhood friends that join love each other but are blind to the fact that they like each other back. Sweet side story? Nope. The girl proceeds to dance with 3 guys and allows one to sensually feed her drugging drops and make out. Think that's the moment they are spurred to the next level? Nope, he wasn't there to see it and it is never mentioned again. Why is it even written? The only character with real depth was Harker and we aren't supposed to like him.

The heroine also jumps to correct conclusions with little information; Higher ranking competent officers telling her classified information just because or how they in their years of experience and caution didn't see the setup that this rookie did. The breaches in protocol for no reason; Perhaps writing about the military without applying research was a bad plan. The fighting scenes seems to have been constructed by someone who either doesn't know what they are doing or by one who assumes you can fill in the parts that were skipped so we can get back to the story.

Oh wait I didn't talk about the narration yet. An emotionless book deserves emotionless narration. Even the parts that required "yelling" were said in the same flat tone. I could pick up slight differences between male and female voices; good job there. Her voice did put me to sleep no less than four times so....
