Idriel, a second-class angel accused of murdering his comrades-in-arms, is sent to bootcamp on Earth where angels and demons train for the heavenly battles. The last thing he expects is Eligor, a first-class demon with his own ethics and more handsome than any angel, who grudgingly takes Idriel under his protection.

While waiting for his sentence to be passed, Idriel trains

Stories where angels & demons are the focus are foreign to me, one maybe two tops. I went in blind into this read mostly being drawn by the cover without any reviews to go by and not being familiar with this author.

And what did I get? I got the story of Adriel, an angel framed for murder sent to a boot camp of sorts on Earth in preparation for being sent to Hell. I got the story of Eligor, a fallen angel/demon who has risen from Hell and is now stationed at the same boot camp where he has e

What a Hellride - literally! a sexually charged,fast and furious,angels vs. demons,full Technicolor B-action movie where the popcorn should be black!
Fasten seat belts,please...!

Well, what a happy surprise this one was.

Angels and demons are woefully thin on the ground in the M/M genre, and this one has both, excellently drawn and fleshed-out. The heavenly world-building became so complicated at times that it overwhelmed the plot, but otherwise this was an engrossing read with thought-provoking themes and characters.

Idriel is a fallen angel and Eligor a temporarily reprieved demon (who was himself fallen from heaven centuries ago). They meet in a military training camp o

Great plot! Angels and demons at war. Excellent world building. The descriptions of the different levels of Hell were really cool.
The best of live-action anime in convenient ebook form. Fallen angels and Rising demons, all pocket-sized for my convenience.

"Idriel's Sin" is a thrumming, well-paced thriller of a tale, following fallen angel Idriel during his punishment and training as he prepares to enter the underside of hell, and the rising demon Eligor as he trains to re-enter heaven. The mystery is there, the attraction, the suspense, and the oh-so-cinematic conclusion when Idriel finally comes into his own. These are ch
I'd rate this a 3.5. I didn't really the book until Idriel becomes blamf. My thoughts/feelings while reading:

I hate Eligor. I hate the type that just beliefs everything they're told and Eligor fits the bill. I mean, shouldn't he have some experience about not being believed being a demon? Mistreated? Thought lesser of? He also gratuitously swears in almost every line he speaks. (This holds true for me until about 65% of the book. I still can't stand him in the earlier portions of the book.)

It was interesting and well-written. Although it talks of angels, it doesn't seem preachy, but also doesn't go into the realm of blatantly "blasphemous" either.

The world creation was amazing and, to me, seemed to indicate at least a bit of research into actual angelic lore.

The characterization wasn't outrageous either, which is always exciting. (I think reading too much badly written homoromantic fic has really artificially lowered my standards... =_=)

I also have to say, I rather like the cover
Hmmm. This should have been a 4-star read. The MCs were great, the situation was interesting. I liked the portrayal of the 3 species - mortals who are, well, what we are. Demons who are raunchy and bad-ass yet are sympathetic. Angels who are mostly arrogant pricks with a holier-than-thou attitude. Yet- the end, the resolution, seemed rushed, and instead of finishing my read with a satisfied smile it was more of an "eh." I may re-read it at a later date to see why I reacted that way to a read whi ...more

Story plot circles round Angels and Demons. An Angel called Idriel is framed to kill his teammates and is judged to be send to Hell. He is known as fallen and is send first to Earth to some kind of camp where his real story begins.

Story was interesting I have to admit, but the ending did not feel right.

"To forever," he agreed, his heart light...' Oh, I didn't want this book to end! Fell in love with Idriel. Eligor is a demon after my own heart. Loved the history and hierarchy of heaven and hell. If you like angel/demon books, this is a must.

Interesting worlds, but I just can't stop the mental eye-roll at the whole "sex is the answer" to every problem in the story.
Not really my cup of tea. Plot was a bit meandering/unclear, plus too much sex for my personal taste.
