When Fallon Angell died at the age of sixteen, her life changed forever.

The hallowed world of Emperica is everything she had ever hoped for as a mortal—immeasurable beauty, unconditional love and light. But, with affection for humankind still burning within her, she joins the Knight Caste to train as an angel warrior. As a Knight, she will give up her wings and return to the place that killed her to use her unique powers to search out and destroy the evil Kjin that roam the earth. As a Knight, she will stop at nothing to protect the mortals in her care.

The elders warn her that the path she chose will be a solitary one. That she will not have the same bond with humans as she once did. But, as far as she knows, the elders had never met Kade Royce.

When her duties place her in the path of this handsome former cop, emotions buried long ago rise to the surface and she is powerless to ignore the depth of her feelings for this young man. She knows instinctively that she has found what most people search their entire lives for.

Ignoring the risks, she invites him into her world of danger, but soon their lives collide with explosive consequence. As a result, Fallon realizes with heartbreaking despair that she can no longer hide from the painful truth. In order for Kade to live, she must destroy him.
 This is gonna be a quickie review people.
Ahh... insta-love at it's finest.  As soon as Kade sees Fallon, he's in love. No, I'm not kidding. He freaking proposes to her a few days after meeting her. Hahahahaha. Uhm. I'll pass....

Fallon dies and becomes a protector of good on earth. She get's her wings chopped off and declares that she will be loyal to serving good for as long as she can possibly can. This assignment is different than the others because she is not only the hunter but the hunted. I wasn't particularly fond of Fallon or Kade. They were both..they were almost naive. It was a little strange. 
Everything in this book was very straight forward and very rushed. Rushed in a book is one of my major pet peeves. So is insta-love. 


This book and I just weren't compatible. The ending was very uniformed and rushed. Their relationship felt fake and desperate. (this is all in my opinion) yes, they were in love, but I would have liked them to take their time and not, I don't know....

Anyways. Not for me.




  1. Uuuurgh there is little in books I despise more than insta-love! It just never works for me! And it sounds like it wasn't just the romance that was rushed in this one either. I haven't had the best of luck with angel books so I doubt this one would do it for me either. Hope your next read is better!

    1. *shudders* It was a desperate sort of insta love too. Eeew. See, I've actually had pretty good luck with angel books...just not this one *shrugs* Better luck next time.
      Happy reading!

  2. Really good review. I was thinking the idea of the story sounded good, but your "insta-love" comment made me pretty sure I probably wouldn't be reading it.

    1. *shudders* insta love is a horrific thing.
      Happy reading
