Angel of Darkness (The Fallen #1)
Nicole St. James was a nice woman. An innocent, pretty, twentysomething schoolteacher with her life ahead of her. But as the angel of death, it's Keenan's job to take that life away. So when a vampire attacks Nicole, Keenan is not supposed to snap and take out the vampire instead. It cost him his wings--but she's worth it.
Except when Keenan catches up to hi...more
A fallen angel who swears and kills...
A vampire who actually drinks human blood instead of animal like the fashion is these days...
This isn't sweet.
There is killing here, and the MCs actually do some of it.
Not one character here is miserable and suffering their poor misfortune.
They all deal with it the best they can.
AND I LOVE IT!!!!!!!
I have to say I really love the writing style of this author, and I'm definitely going to read all her other series.
I like it that she doesn't sugar-coat everythi...more
Despite popular belief, angels were not the favored ones. They did not have choices like the humans. Angels only had duty.
Well hello, Cynthia Eden. I see I’ve been missing out by putting off giving your books a try. I can’t remember where I got the impression, but for some reason I always assumed that Eden wrote light, fluffy PNR. I’m relieved to be mistaken. I liked the way she kept me guessing through the story. I wasn’t sure who was good and who was bad and how everything would resolve. The...more
Nicole never wanted what she got but she wants to live, she had done bad things because of her blood-lust and doesn't understand who Keenan is at first. Keenan meanwhile is experiencing emotions...more
I have been looking forward to this book for about a month now, and the wait was totally worth it.
Keenan is an Angel of Death, and one of his charges is a lovely, innocent, and nice school teacher named Nicole. When it comes down to the moment where Nicole is meeting her death by vampire in a dark alley, she fights. Nicole fights until she has nothing left in her. Keenan is an unfeeling angel who has seen it all. They don't lust, or hate, or love, or anyth...more
I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I haven't read any Cynthia Eden books before but I really liked the look of this one and boy am I glad I read it because now I have lots more books to add to my ever growing TBR list.
I really liked the idea of this book. The storyline sounded a little different to what I've been reading recently. I haven't read any Angel books for a while so was particularly looking forward to this for that reason...more
This is a new series by Cynthia Eden. She introduces us to her Dark Angels or The Fallen. This story is about Keenan, an angel who goes against the rules because he was tempted, loses his wings, get tossed out of heaven while enduring excruciating pain. “I’ve heard it’s the fire that makes you scream the loudest.” I was hooked by Chapter 2. If you are a Cynthia Eden fan like I am, you will...more
AUTHOR: Cynthia Eden
LENGTH: 305 PAGES
RATING: 3 STARS
I'm not much into PNR, but I couldn't help myself when I saw this series. This is my first Cynthia Eden book. There were things I liked and some I just... Ugh get it over with it. For starts this feels REAL long. I thought it was 605 instead of 305 pages only.
Keenan is a angel of death, he carries the soulf of those who dies to another plane. Nicole is one of his charges, and he must carry her soul. Only he he...more
This books definitely straddles the line between o-k and good. Even writing this I'm sighing because I really wish I enjoyed it more than I did. I could see people really enjoy this, as it is an easy read, and some of the characters are good. But, that being said, overall for me, I found I didn't care for the lead characters Keenan and Nicole, and the story left a lot to be desired. When there are such good paranormal romance books/series' out there, this one really missed the mark.
My experience with Cynthia Eden's paranormal books is limited to her "Bound" novellas. This is the first time I read a lengthier story of her in that genre (my experience with her on novels is with her romantic suspence, "Deadly" series).
Keenan used to be an angel of death -- he fell because he failed in taking one life of Nicole St. James. That fateful night, Nicole looked at him, begging for help, he hesitated, and ended up taking life that is not supposed to be his job. Then, after h...more
I liked the fact there wasn't many facts to remember about the PRN world within this book. As I have a short attention span and would give up or loose my place.
I will definitely read book 2 as Sam sounds like the sort of Dark Angel I wouldn't mind jumping into bed with bwhahahahaha
Thanks B for the rec :) mwaaahhhh
A dark and sexy story set in a gritty world of fallen angels, honest-to-goodness blood-drinking vampires, savage shifters and evil demons with vices. Honestly, I was blown away by just how much I enjoyed 'Angel of Darkness' - needless to say the rest of 'The Fallen' series just topped my to-be-read list!
With a distinctive blend of darkness and light, Angel of Darkness is a thrilling new paranormal romance to lose yourself in!

Sam, however, was a huge scene stealer. Look forward to his book.

“I was just in the mood to kick some ass.”
She shook her head. “You know, you just don’t sound like an angel.”

In the case of ANGEL OF DARKNESS, we have Keenan, a fallen angel who’s lost his wings because he didn’t take the soul he was supposed to. Nicole was set to die and Keenan was tasked with bringing her soul into the afterlife, but aft...more
“He’d always thought humans got the better end of the deal. Pleasure, passion. Sure, pain was thrown into the mix, too. But you could live through the pain.”
As an angel of death Keenan spent centuries watching humans and collecting their souls and he never had a problem with his job until he is sent to collect the soul of Nicole St. James. Keenan spends days watching Nicole and when it comes time to collect her soul he hesitates and it ch...more
Fallen Angels - sometimes they work for me, sometimes they don't. To believe that a being moves from angelic good to total badass overnight is quite a leap of faith. In the case of Keenan, I got the feeling this was a long time coming. He's been suppressing his needs by focusing on his duty until one night it all comes to a head.
Nicole St. James is a devoted teacher, good friend and an upstanding citizen. Then one night she's attacked and turned into a vampire. Everything she has work...more
Do not make the same mistake that I made! I was thinking that since I had recently read a couple of other authors Fallen Angels books, that I was ready for something different. Well! THIS SERIES BY CYNTHIA EDEN IS THAT SOMETHING DIFFERENT!! It is written so well, with every story having a different angle (or is that angel? Lol), each of which was not what I expected at all!!!! I flew through the books (pun intended) until the last one. I didn’t want to read it because it was THE...more
