Michael Fassbender as Azazeal from the series Hex Photobucket

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


I adored that series, and once I saw that Azazel is the H in this one... Well it just had me squeeling all over Photobucket

This book was SO much better than the first one! The story's better, I connected to the characters from the very beginning :)

The story is about Azazel fighting his destiny, the awfull prophecy that says he will bond and mate with the demon Lilith and rule over Hell. So he finds Lilith in order to kill her. But one thing he didn't exp

This was one of those books I found hard to rate. I wavered between giving it 3 or 4 stars because I had mixed feelings about it.

I’ve always loved reading Anne Stuart’s romantic suspense stories. And as her fan, when I found The Fallen series written under the pseudonym Kristina Douglas, I knew I would never miss a chance to read her paranormal romance ones as well. Demon is the second installment in The Fallen series, a decent story of Azazel, the fallen angel, and Lilith, the demon.

This was a solid four star book until the last hundred or so pages, when it really turned around, and I knew it would get the highest rating from me. I must say I think the storyline is very imaginative, artistic and surreal. Ms. Douglas isn't an overly expansive writer, but she somehow paints a very vivid picture of the sights and surroundings, emotions and actions of her characters. Dark City is a nightmarish place, and the imagery rang loud and clear as I read. Sheol has an otherworldly beaut ...more

I'm so, so disappointed with this one.

I love Anne Stuart's novels with a fierceness, so I knew I'd have to read her paranormal romances under the pen name Kristina Douglas. I'd read Raziel, and enjoyed it, but this one? *sigh*

There was such potential, but it just fell flat. There was the enemies to lovers thing, the angst of amnesia and possibly a misunderstood demon heroine, and of course, the trademark Big Betrayal by the hero.

But.... (view spoiler)

Demon (The Fallen) by Kristina Douglas
Urban Fantasy - May 31st, 2011
2 stars

Demon is the second in the Fallen angels series by Kristina Douglas. Hard core heroes with little compassion try to protect their world from demons.

Azazel's wife died, and he is bitter. Now he is on the hunt. He vows to find the evil reincarnation of the original Lilith. (A woman who denied Adam and was sentenced to a living hell for not letting herself be dominated by a man.) Azazel is appointed with discovering what she

(3 1/2 Stars)

I'm not sure what possessed me to read this book in its entirety. A fast read no-doubt, but I'm still unsure if I even liked this book. After enjoying the first book, I thought the follow-up would be decent as well. Well, I was wrong. The writing and worldbuilding was fine enough, it was the main couple's relationship that disturbed me. The male protagonist goes beyond acting cool & indifferent, when an unwelcome attraction begins to bloom towards the demon he's been tracking. I

Very Brief Synopsis - Flash to 7 years after the end of the last book, Raziel. Azazel is still mourning the loss of his mate, has given over control of the Fallen to Raziel, and apparently has been hunting for the Lilith. He finds her in the form of Rachel, who has no memory of having been the dread Lilith, leaves her to her fate twice, and ends up rescuing her twice before taking her to the Fallen sanctuary, Sheoul.

Azazel - Well...not the nicest hero ever. No, not nice. At. All. From what I ca

The story was dark and intense. I liked that this book is 7 years after the death of Azazel’s wife, it made it more realistic (as realistic as this genre can be LOL). He is still bitter and angry. He is the tortured hero, although he is not always heroic. Some of it was a bit too intense for me, but it was a interesting addition to the series.

I not sure who is next in the series, but I would love to read Micheal's story.

Improved from the first, but I'm actually confused as to if I even like this book

So going by my usual pattern I've decided to read Kristina Douglas's angel series back to back. While the first book, Raziel, wasn't the best, I thought the world was fairly interesting and I was willing to give the second book a go. On the plus side, Demon (The Fallen #2) definitely provided me with an unexpected experience.

While book 1 focuses on Raziel and Allie, in typical paranormal romance fashion its sequel

Demon is book 2 in Kristina Douglas’ Fallen series, the follow up to Raziel. *spoilers for Raziel*. At the end of the first book, Azazel’s beloved Sarah has been killed and in his grief, he leaves Sheol. Demon picks up 5 years later when Azazel locates ”the Lillith” (aka Rachel, who has no memory of Lillith) a demon who, according to

I really don’t know what to say about “The Fallen: Demon” the second book of The Fallen series by Kristina Douglas! Although, they were a lot of things that I don’t enjoy in other books, in this one those things were the best part!

The story takes place seven years after the first book and the main character is Azazel. He is a Fallen and a not an easy-going person. His beloved wife, Sarah, has been murdered at the end of the first book and now he’s trying to prove wrong an ancient prophecy which

Once again I give this book 3.5 stars. It is such an interesting take on fallen angels. It is quite dark but still gave me what I wanted. The first book in the series, Raziel, sets up the scene quite nicely for this book takes place 7 years later. (I liked that because it gave Allie time to settle into her role as the source and establish her love and emotional ties with Raziel).

The story begins right away with Rachel who seems to lose her identity every 2 years though for the life of her she do

Il primo della serie non mi aveva affatto convinto ma speravo (pregavo XD) che con questo secondo capitolo la serie sarebbe finalmente decollata...invece è precipitata ancora di più schiantandosi al suolo XD Azazel è, essenzialmente, un testone lagnoso e abbastanza str**o (quando ci vuole ci vuole XD).

*sigh* I was really hoping to be able to give this book a better rating than the last one "Raziel", but sadly this book was completely worse than the first. My main complaint is Azazel. I don't think I could ever hate a "hero" as much as I hated him throughout this whole book. What a cruel and callous bastard. Rachel was okay at first, I liked her in the beginning, but just reading about her being okay with what Azazel did her, I began to lose any respect for her as not only just a fictional cha ...more
Sarah
I have mixed feelings about this book. I like Rachel in some ways, but in others, the author made her too "weak." She gives up too easily, she is too readily the victim. But I guess, in some people's eyes, there is a strength in the ability to submit and trust that you won't get anything you aren't willing to submit to. Which of course... means that she gets lots of things she definitely doesn't want to happen. I am upset that she never got to tell the truth about herself and that people are sti ...more

This book begins seven years after the end of the first book and deals with Azazel and Rachel. Azazel had lost his mate, Sarah, in the first book and is in mourning. There is a prophecy that he will be bonded with a demon called the Lilith who is supposed to be Rachel. Rachel is totally human and has no memory of being a demon or doing any of the horrible things the Lilith has done. However, she is aware that certain things happen when she's around so she is always on the move, and it doesn't he ...more

ok it took me about 45minutes into this audiobook to realize that the author switched from 1st person POV. I knew something was off but just couldn't put my finger on it. (back to the story)

OMG!! 2hrs 24mins into the audiobook I realized that Rachel's POV is in first person and Azazel's pov is in 3rd person. WTF!?!?! Ok seriously why the hell would someone do that? Beuler? Beuler? (back to the story)

I was more impressed with this one than the first book in the series. I am busy catching up after company, so my reading is slow! I could have finished this in a couple days. It was about 400 pages. Unfortunately my reading time slacked off, so it took twice as long! LOL!!

Like many of the other reviews, this book wasn't very good until about 150 pages in or so. For the first 150 pages, they were in the dark world… geez! I lost the name. Anyway, everyone but them lacked color. Rachel does not rem

Rachel Fitzpatrick has no long term memory, but she knows she’s not your everyday average woman. For one thing, babies have a tendency to die when she’s in the vicinity. Plus, she knows she’s being stalked for some reason. Since the death of his beloved Sarah, Azazel had one goal. Track the evil demon Lilith and kill her. For years he had been on her trail and now he has her. He wasn’t buying her “I don’t remember” story, and it was time to end this.
This book caused me to have to develop a new

I loved this one! Once again the female characters are amazing and Azazel I could of throttled to death so many times, what a jerk! She had a horrible curse and it was so sad what all Rachel had to go through but FINALLY he pulled his head out of his ars and figured it out and it was glorious!

I am not sure about this one.....how do you get over the fact that the man you love has knowingly allowed you to be tortured by the enemy? I don't care about the destiny factor...I'm not over it!

For a declararion of love that leaves a lot to be desired!
