Author: Nalini Singh
Genre: Adult Fiction, Fantasy,Paranormal Romance
My Rating: ★★★★☆
i really have to keep in mind that adult angel books are way,way,way,way better than YA angel books.! yay!
this book really lived up with my expectation on what an adult fantasy novel is like this book is VERY dark,filled with lust,passion,intense emotions and hardcore action scenes.
what really got my attention is the concept of the book, i have read a lot of vampire novels and it is always stated in those novels that to make a vampire (a fledgling) one has to die first and be fed by vampire blood or get bitten by a vampire and so on, but in this book angels make vampires, and that's something new to me who would have thought that angels who are so fine and gentle are responsible for making vampires... angels here are somehow evil,erotic, and possessive in this book not sarcastic and fun loving in YA novels that i used to read.
Since this is an adult fantasy novel expect a bit of vulgar words,profanity and a bit of sex (a bit is kinda understated :P),blood and gore as I've said angels here are different, they posses mind control that made girls want to sleep with them.
so the first couple of pages in this book is how Raphael (the archangel of NY) try to mind control Elena of pursuing her on having some kind of erotic pleasure, i was actually confused with their relationship cause they copulate not because of love but because they treat each other as play things or a toy and Raphael is just so darn hard to read i really don't know if he is just possessive with Elena cause she is his "toy" or he really does love her but in the end i got an answer to my question because...
"Ambrosia only rises when an archangel loves true" *giddy*
this is an overall a great read, some parts are kinda boring cause they keep on blabbering and blabbering about Uram and vampires and (blah,blah) but once there is an action scene in this book it will make you go "OMG!" and I'm a sucker for anything gothic and this one is a bit gothic-ish and i like how angels are in this book , they have this so called "angel dust" and according to the book it is way,way,way better than any kind of drug... i'm excited to read the next novel cause Elena is an *gasp* ANGEL!!! yay! and i am looking forward to her relationship with Raphael.. YAY!
if you are fond of reading YA novels this one may shock you, so better prepare yourself LOL
