He is a fallen.
She thinks him beneath her.
Sometimes it’s the bad boy who saves you.
Cade is a fallen angel who endeavors to follow the right path. That is until the angels’ ruling body decide the warrior is the perfect match to carry out their new assignment. Schooling the young, snobbish Abagail in the art of demon fighting is a challenge he could do without. The female tests him at every turn yet tempts him to show just how bad he can really be.
When Abagail is summoned by the Tribunal, she is beyond eager to finally take her place among the angels. With her eye on an elite warrior for her mate, she is determined to make him hers. But when the nephilim is thrust into a mission with a fallen angel, she is mortified. Cade is everything dark and bad, but she quickly learns the line between good and evil is very misleading.
Like oil and water, Cade and Abby are constantly at odds with each other, but Cade can’t deny the attraction building for the aloof nephilim. As their mission draws to a close, he realizes Abby is keeping a secret. She is terrified and it’s up to him to gain her trust. He will do anything to protect her and prove his damned soul is worthy of her.
These are not your mother’s angels.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 Review by Kristie K
A sinful tale of good versus evil, and the horrors that lie where you least expect them…
Valerie Twombly has created another incredible tale within the world of the Eternal Mates. In Surrender to Darkness, the fifth installment in the series, we get a front row seat on the roller coaster that is Cade and Abigail. As a fallen angel with more soul than darkness, Cade still believes in the good in the world and wants nothing more than to preserve it. When he is tasked by the Tribunal to train a young, spoiled nephilim in the art of demon fighting, he is less than thrilled. When his new trainee turns out to be more of a challenge than fighting a demon horde, the tension grows hot…and something more than animosity flares.
Abigail has lived a pampered and indulgent existence all of her life, and expects nothing less when she comes of age and is called to take her place among the angels. Abigail’s expectations take a nosedive when her first mission is to train with a fallen angel warrior that is as sexy as he is untamed. Determined to get through this horrid ordeal and marry an Elite warrior worthy of her status, Abigail tries to put Cade out of her mind and concentrate on her training. The problem is, Cade is showing he has more sides to his rough demeanor, and Abigail finds herself drawn to him. Worse yet, a shocking development makes her realize that she’s never felt safer than she does with Cade.
Another winner from Ms. Twombly, Surrender to Darkness delivers all the elements her fans have come to crave from her. With a super sexy fallen angel as the hero, and a heroine that can be a little tough to like, this book has it all! An unwanted chemistry and desire that pulls between two unlikely souls, there was a slow burn to this story that kept you reading just to see what would transpire between them next. A great storyline within the Eternal Mates series, with long beloved characters making their appearances, Surrender to Darkness was an incredible addition to the series. I absolutely adore the worlds that Ms. Twombly creates for us, and can’t wait to see what comes next.
