This book is action-packed, sexy, romantic and so much better than the first one. 4 well earned stars!

"Good God, she thought, as she stared up at the curve of his chin, the broad plane of his shoulders, and the vast expanse of muscle across his chest and midsection. I'm in bed with an archangel."


I had a very good picture in my head of Gabriel (view spoiler)

The archangels as you will be aware from book 1 of the series live in America...more

I really looked forward to reading Messenger’s Angel by Heather Killough-Walden. I have a thing for the fallen angel trope and this one seemed interesting even while similar to others out there.

Messenger’s Angel is book two in this series. In book one, Uriel finds his archess, so the archangels now know that these archesses really do exist and the remaining archangels are ever hopeful that they, too, may at last find the one woman created especially for them. In this book, Gabriel is featured a...more

Gabriel has been searching for his Archess, his soul mate, for two thousand years. The problem is that a team of Andarians are also searching for the Archesses, hoping to steal their powerful healing abilities. Samuel Lambent is also determined to track down an Archess, for reasons that he has yet to reveal.

Although Gabriel can flit anywhere in the world that has a door (using the archangels mansion) the group of archangels are based in America. However, Gabriel feels that Scotland is his real...more

I’ve been reading quite a bit recently. The reason for this is there are SO MANY GOOD BOOKS COMING OUT, and Messenger’s Angel is one of those.

The second book in the Lost Angels series (the first focuses on Uriel), this one is about Gabriel and his archess, Juliette. I really enjoyed Avenger’s Angel and waited quite impatiently for Messenger’s Angel to come out, and of course, the day it came out, I raced to the bookstore to get it.

Let me tell you, the wait was worth it.

Look at that cover! He's so pretty - I want to scream and roll around on the floor!

Okay... *gets up off the floor*

There are a lot of things that really kept me coming back to this book. After the first in the series, events were predictable, but I still wanted to see it through to the end.

But... Then at the end! There's a bit of the next book. Azrael's book. Dude. I want to read Azrael's book so bad. And I have to wait 6 months! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

I still don't understand the Adarians' motivation...more

Let's all take a moment to appreciate the fact that Gabriel Black has to be the sexiest man alive with an equally sexy Scottish accent. Yep, I am sold.

Angels are my favorite. Add in archangels and bam, you have my soul. Or my first-born. Regardless, I love love this book. And this is coming from someone who didn't read the first book. The plot was great, and seeing from what I have read, Killough-Walden is not afraid to use the same plot twice, and still point it to you. Yep Michael, I am talkin...more

I'm sure the archess Samael wants is the one who belongs to Michael. Michael is the one who took Samael's place in Heaven and became the Old Man favourite. So now I can bet Sam wants to take something as equally important from Michael. Sam wants to hurt Michael the same way he was hurt when he lost his place as the Old Man's favourite archangel. That's the reason he came to earth: to get revenge.
I hope Max and Lilith will end up together. I like them so much.

This was even better than the first. Loved Gabriel and Juliette. I cant wait to read about Az and Sophie next. What I am dying to know is what the heck Samuel is up too. I am struggling to figure out of he is good or bad or just a combo of both. Whats his ultimate plan?

Death's Angel, book 3 of The Lost Angels series, is due to be released in Dec/Jan.
Dark Faerie Tales
Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.

Quick & Dirty: An action-packed novel with great characters in an amazing setting of Scotland. This was a great follow-up novel in the Lost Angels series.

Opening Sentence: Juliette sidled back on the massive four-poster bed, a remotely hesitant part of her still wanting to get away.

The Review:

I was way more impressed with Messenger’s Angel than I was with Avenger’s Angel. Maybe it was because the series has been set up so I didn’t have to sit through long...more

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

I love seeing how different authors play with angel mythology considering they are one of the few fantasy creatures with some built in lore of their own in actual religious texts. One thing that bothered me was the characters referring to God as “Old Man”. I got the feeling that Killough-Walden was trying too hard to hide the connotation to the Judeo-Christian God. Personally I was a touch bothered by the terminology and probably would have been less ir...more

Book 2 in the Angel series and a follow up.

Juliette travels to Scotland to prepare a history mini series. Whilst there she is bewildered to find that she is suddenly developing magical powers to control the weather , teleknesis and the power of healing.
Gabriel bumps into her and realises that she is his mate/ archess ( still don't like the phrase)

The Adarians are also on her trail. This time they have decided to kill the archesses and drink their blood so as to take their power of healing . Th...more

Messenger's Angel (Lost Angels, #2) by Heather Killough-Walden If you love unusual paranormal worlds, then Juliette and Gabriel's story will introduce you to enough unique characters to keep us both in agonizing anticipation of what will happen next in the LOST ANGELS series. Yes, there are more than cookies on the dark side!

this book was as great as the first book, if not more so. the only thing i didn't like too much who how much attention was pointed at the Adarians. There was too much about them and in all the good bits. like as soon as the book good super exciting it would end the persons point of view and turn to someone else. I think i just wanted to read more about Juliette and Gabriel at the start of the book. it also took a while to get into the book there was a lot of nothing at the start of the book and...more

Messenger’s Angel is Gabriel and Juliette’s story and the second book in Heather Killough-Walden’s Lost Angels Series. The first book, Avenger’s Angel, laid the groundwork for this series and it was good, but Messenger’s Angel has me totally hooked and there is no turning back. *sigh*

Gabriel is the loner among his brothers. He’s Scottish and prefers to spend his time there as much as he can. He loves his brothers, but there’s no place like home for him and Scotland is it. Juliette, unlike Ellie...more

Finished reading Messenger’s Angel today. Heather did an amazing job on some of the highlights of Scotland. The description of the land and the castles and other historic places were so well written I was able to picture it myself.

Gabriel’s search has finally ended. His Archess, Juliette is his perfect match. She’s good, kind, stubborn and strong. She not only is willing to stand up and fight for herself, but she’ll do anything to save the people she cares about.

The Adarians are back in Messeng...more

La mia recensione sul blog: http://romanticamentefantasy.blogspot...

Nel primo romanzo della serie Lost Angels siamo stati introdotti nell'universo mitologico creato da Heather Killough-Walden.
Sappiamo che i quattro noti arcangeli Uriel, Gabriele, Azrael e Michele sono sulla Terra in cerca delle loro cherubine (angeli donna creati da Dio appositamente per essere le loro anime gemelle) da migliaia di anni.
Questo secondo capitolo vede come protagonista principale Gabriele, il "Messaggero". L'arcang...more

Zitat:
"Während sie seinen Blick erwiderte, schien sich die Zeit zu verlangsamen. Das Rauschen der Brandung an der Küste glich einer leisen Melodie, Möwen kreischten, der kalte Wind roch nach Salz. In Gabriels Haar sah sie Salzkristalle. Jetzt erschien er ihr wie ein Teil dieses Landes - unerschütterlich, hart, kompromisslos. Und die durchdringenden Augen wirkten sehr alt, von tausend Geschichten erfüllt."
(S. 225)

Juliette träumt oft von "alten" Orten, in denen sich auf magische Weise die V...more

If you have read Avenger’s Angel then you should understand what I mean when I say I can’t wait for that chapter and to be honest it was part of the reason I wanted this book so bad.
The book opens to a hot scene and I’m thinking oh I won’t have to wait very long, then it turns out only to be a dream.
Messanger’s Angel is about one of the four favoured archangels, Gabriel who is searching for his archess and he needs to find her before the Adarians or Sam does.
Of course Sam finds her first and ma...more

My attention was captivated instantly from the first paragraph. Those initial few pages were seriously hot and my kindle felt like it would melt in my hands from the exposure. Samael is up to his old tricks again and temptation is always on the menu when he needs to enlist the help of the archangels. Gabriel was a great character, I am a sucker for an accent myself though his caveman behaviour did not create a wonderful first impression but he did save her life a few times so all was forgiven.

TRAMA: Juliette Anderson sta lavorando alla sua tesi di dottorato e si reca in Scozia, terra d’origine dei suoi genitori, per fare delle ricerche antropologiche. Non appena mette piede in Caledonia, si ritrova davanti a una nuova realtà decisamente incredibile. Improvvisamente capisce di essere in grado di curare le ferite e di manipolare i fenomeni atmosferici: può scagliare fulmini, far scatenare una tempesta, dissipare la nebbia. Presto scopre anche di poter utilizzare la telecinesi come arma...more

I really, really liked this one!! Significantly more than the first one! I couldn't put it down. Once it finished, I sat back and tried to figure out why I liked it so much more than the first. Definitely the location. I'm a sucker for Scotland and the fact that Gabriel has the Scottish accent, dreamy! The pace of this one was much better as well. While I understand that there is a lot of explaining that needs to take place in the first book of any new series, but I felt that it was too repetiti...more

Intenso, sensuale e particolare come il suo prequel, anche Il Messaggero dell'Angelo di Heather Killough-Walden �� riuscito a conquistarmi. La forte carica erotica e la tensione pre e post scontri fra angeli mi fa venire i brividi, cos�� intensa da far rimanere sull'attenti chiunque legga!
Come vi sentireste se improvvisamente il vostro sogno prendesse forma, vi ritrovaste nella terra che avete sempre sognato di visitare, mentre infinite porte sembrano aprirsi davanti a voi? Juliette non riesce a...more

Heather Killough-Walden creates an exciting, romantic world based on the Archangels, with two enemies (possibly!), one of which is dark and sexy as hell. I love Heather's books and can't wait for the next one, which by the end of the book you find out which Archangel is next


The Archangel Gabriel (the Scottish eye candy of the series), has been waiting 2000 years for her, his Archess, and just as he finds her so do the enemy, the Adarian and Samael.

The story continues 4 months after Uriel finds E...more
