From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series comes the second Novel of the Fallen Angels, and a deadly new mission for the reluctant savior enlisted to protect the future of humanity…
Seven deadly sins. Seven souls that must be saved. One more no-holds battle between a fallen angel with a hardened heart and demon with everything to lose.
Isaac Rothe is a black ops solider with a dark past and a grim future. The target of an assassin, he finds himself behind bars, his fate in the hands of his gorgeous public defender, Grier Childe. His hot attraction to her is a totally wrong place/wrong time kind of thing—and that’s before Jim Heron tells him his soul is in danger. Caught up in a wicked game with the demon who shadows Jim, Isaac must decide whether the solider in him can believe that true love is the ultimate weapon against evil...
Evocative writing imbued with raw masculinity immediately grabs the reader in the second book of Ward's Fallen Angels series (after 2009's Covet). High-octane action and high-voltage chemistry surround Isaac Rothe as he attempts to escape from his special ops past. After he's arrested for participating in an underground fighting ring, Grier Childe is assigned as his public defender. Fallen angel Jim Heron, one of Isaac's former XOps comrades, is sent to kill him but comes to believe Isaac is one of the souls he must save from the dark side. Soon Jim is engaging in some fabulously gross battles with demons, assisted by two over-sexed angels somewhat reminiscent of Ward's Black Dagger heroes. The one false note in this complex story is the lust-based romance between Grier and Isaac; aside from great sex, one wonders what will hold them together once their adrenaline-induced ordeal ends.
Always Fun Stuff
I've read all the BDB series and was relieved when I started this series. Great reading and I love the world of J R Ward. Cheers for Warderia !
Great!!! the twist is so different... i love it... the couple were a great fit!!
Crave was better than Covet but the end was a little rushed. Looking forward to read Envy now. JR is a genius.
