Angel Rising by Deena Remiel *Review
Posted by brriske
Hannah Livingston has the most infamous stalker that ever existed- Satan. She spent her sixth birthday with the Brethren, fighting an apocalyptic war that sent the Dark Prince back to Hell, and the rest of her life wondering if he’d be back for her soul someday. She needn’t wonder any longer.
Gabriel Seeker, Brethren Protector, spends his days and nights rescuing kids from sex traffickers and protecting their lives from further damage. He knows all too well the nightmarish world they’ve been stolen into, and it’s gotten harder to keep secret his own past horrors.
Hannah and Gabriel have always gotten along, first as friends, then as co-workers. She manages his life and he protects hers. A perfect, symbiotic relationship, so it would seem, until suppressed feelings for each other surface and forever change the landscape of their lives. Stricken with PTSD, the determined angel seeks to protect the woman he loves from Satan’s greedy and insidious clutches.
Deceit and seduction, desire and repression, collide in this epic, immortal story of love, duty, and sacrifice.
I found that this story to be very interesting. To me it defines the words “Guardian Angel”. There is a biblical tone to the book, but certainly a really nice spin on both the angelic and demonic sides. Even though this is the fourth book in the series, I think it is enough of a stand alone to still enjoy what’s going on.
What drew me in was that the story itself wasn’t a cookie cutter type that one sees in some genre.
I think my favorite character is Hannah. She’s a snarky, intelligent woman who doesn’t want to stand behind and be protected, but rather a woman who wants to be right there beside her lover and family on the front lines.
All in all the characters were very well thought up and the banter made me crave more from this series. I think that fans of angel/demon, sci-fi, and urban fantasy romance would truly get a kick out of Angel Rising. I would certainly rate this as 4 fangs!
