I did not read #1, just #0.5 a long time ago, so I was completely new to this world. Trevor is a human who was tortured, kept as a blood slave for vampires to feed on for year(s). Siobhan is an angel and angels do not ordinarily feel emotion, but she feels sympathy and attraction toward him, even in his weakened state. (view spoiler) then she's prepared to say goodbye. However, she didn't know that (view spoiler) ...more

The more I read Renegade Angels the more I like it. I read this book after I read book 2 so I knew what was going to happen but the story was still one I liked very much!! I hope the Sylvia Day gets her s*** together, I would like to finish this series at one point! I hate waiting for books, especially since Ms. Day has me now waiting for the two books left in the Renegade Angel series and the two books in Crossfire. UGH! I hope something comes about before 2015!

For a species of beings that aren't supposed to have any feelings, those angels sure are having a hard time turning their backs on love.

Set to coincide with the events of A Hunger So Wild, this novella centers on the Seraph Siobhán. As the science-minded angel works with her team to clear out a vamp nest, she discovers Trevor, a human who has been their prisoner for the past year. He's been used for blood, sex, and sport and is now only a shadow of his former self. In Siobhán, he sees a
Short but sweet.

I have read this series out of order but am pretty sure I remember hearing about both Siobhan and Trevor, so it was great to hear their story.

I am not a huge fan of novellas but this was pretty decent but definitely to the point.
Oh my.. What a delight this short story was. I'm glad I don't have to wait but a couple days to continue reading about the Renegade Angels and the other characters in the books.
Absolutely loved this story. Thank you, Sylvia Day.

In the world of angels and fallen ones. The main reason the Fallen became that way was for falling in love with mortals. For that they lost their wings and have now become eternal vampires. There are less then 200 Sentinals, angels who watch over the Earth and protect humanity from the Fallen and their minions. Siobhan is the scientist among the Sentinals. She has been given the mission to find a cure for a zombie like disease effecting the vampires, before it spreads to a disastrous amount. Dur ...more
3.5 stars - After finishing the prolog of a Caress of Wings I had some pretty strong reservations - the human hero, Trevor, was feed on by vamps who reveled in his fear and he was also repeated raped during the year he was held captive - a tortured/sexually abused lead is not a favorite theme for me and their move to a physical relationship in the aftermath is rarely well done in romance. But I have to say that with the angelic powers of the heroine, Siobhán to mend (and hide) some of the trauma ...more
This novella was pretty good. If you are invested in the Renegade Angels, this novella is a must read, because I’m pretty sure we’ll see the characters again later in the series. I am a little confused in this series, because the whole reason the Sentinels are on earth is to monitor the Watchers’ punishment, but the Sentinels keep committing the same crimes, and they get no punishment. If I were a Watcher/Fallen, I’d be pretty pissed off at this point. Also there are some inconsistencies in the ...more
A CARESS OF WINGS (Renegade Angels #1.5) by Sylvia Day

A CARESS OF WINGS is an e-novella (June 2012 release) in Sylvia Day’s Renegade Angels series. Part of the series premise follows that if a Sentinel (Watcher Angel) falls in love or mates with a mortal/human their wings are removed and they become the Fallen. As a Fallen, they are now vampire, and require blood to survive. But along the way, a few of the Fallen have requested leniency and begged off from vampire status and have become ‘lycan

This is a novella accompanying the Renegade Angels trilogy. During one of her raid on vampire nests, Siobhán rescued Trevor who has been captured by vampires for a year and used as a blood bag. While busy with her research into the vampire disease, Siobhán finds taking care of Trevor a good distraction from her work.
Trevor gradually returns back to good health and apart from being grateful for Siobhán, he finds undeniable connection with her.

This is quite a short, sweet and simple story for the

I read this novella slightly out of order, after A Hunger So Wild, but it was fine and didn't impact the story arc.

I needed another Renegade Angels kick and this fitted the bill nicely :-)

Trevor had been captured and savaged by rogue vamps. The last thing he expected was to be rescued by an angel.

"I'm dead, right?" He looked around, finding heaven to be... not what he'd expected. They were in a small, windowless room. He lay on a couch. There was a coffee table and an entertainment centre with t
I'm finally figuring out that these Renegade Angels books are like a soap opera. All the characters are interrelated and each book focuses on one pair. This one was about Siobhan, an archangel who is working to find the cure for the disease running rampant through the vampire community. She rescues Trevor, a human who has been held captive in a vampire nest for over a year. He was chained in a windowless basement and used for blood. He is definitely messed up, physically and mentally. Siobhan fi ...more
I have to say this was a surprisingly great e-novella.

It had a lot of action, a strong heroine and a very strong hero. What Trevor went through for over a year would normally make anyone else go mad. His fierceness and will is amazing and his determination to help shows that he took his experience and didn't fall apart but is using it to be better. His automatic attraction to Siobhán from the beginning was so strong, you just knew it was due to being soul mates.

I really enjoyed reading this, but
Ohhhh tan perfecto... Me ha encantado la historia y, la escena en el hotel cuando él corre tras ella y se hace el interesante, me ha hecho sonreír. Ojalá Adrian les entienda y les permita seguir juntos como él está con Lyndsay.

Renegade Angels

love the story but find it very difficult to find the next book in the series. The love stories of Adrian and Lindsey are captivating but the I can't find more.
Shortening this very short story, Siobhán - the tech, medical efficient sentinel who works for Adrian, has found her other half - and is managing to fall from grace in a different way.

The guy that got her heart is Trevor - a military doctor, who was being kept as a provider of blood for nearly an year before our heroine has found him, and treated him. Let me just say that S (because I don’t want to write her name again) will be confiding/telling about her escapade with the then human, now vampi
I think this story, despite its short length, is my favourite Renegade Angels story to date. Yet another angel finds her soul (and sex) mate, and discovers that not only are her wings weapons of mass minion destruction, they have another function as well;-) Oh yes, some readers complain that we don't get to read the part when our sentinel heroine loses her virginity- I am ok with that. After all: the first time is supposed to be special and intimate... Espescially when you have waited for eons f ...more
Lisa - (Aussie Girl)
A nice novella with a secondary character mentioned in A Touch of Crimson Sentinel Siobhan getting her HEA with a mortal doctor.

The only critcism I have with this series is according to the premise of the mythology the Sentinels if they fall in love with a mortal are supposed to become Fallen. In the first book and this novella somehow this hasn't happened... and with no adequate explanation except some mention that if they are "changed" the rules maybe don't apply. Just a nit for me because ot
Another novella to keep me up to date with all that happens in the 'Renegade Angel' world. Now I have Trevor to think about. Siobhan, another of these fantastic Sentinal Angels, falling for a human. Or is he, Trevor the poor guy has been through an ordeal, but with or without his full memories of the past year, he falls for Siobhan.

Love these short stories, just keeping the appetite wet for the 3rd in the series. Wouldn't mind if there were more, kind of like reading the sexy stories of this wo
this was a great way to see if you'd like this series....and I do. :-)

If you’re looking for a compelling, sensual love story where the characters are enchanting, the sexual tension is seductive, the fighting is fierce, and the love is uninhibited once they give into their desires, then A Carees of Wings by Sylvia Day is definitely the book to read. I’m so psyched about the next book in the series, A Hunger So Wild. Bravo Ms. Day! Read More!
I have read, A Hunger So Wild, before this one and came across the flip remark Siobhan said. It made me immediately want to track down this one. I really liked this short, loved how there was the instant connection between Siobhan and Trevor. It proved to be a real thing when Siobhan took Trevor’s memories and his reaction was the same. I look forward to see more of Adrian’s reaction to Siobhan comment.
Lissa Smith
I enjoyed this inbetweener! My hope is that Day doesn't leave us hanging like she did with the prequel. The prequel to book 1 through me for a loop because I was waiting for the story to continue and got nothing.

I want to see where Trevor and Siobhan (hard to spell for me)story goes. After Adrian hunting Mark and Helena down then turning to a vampire/angel relationship himself. I just got to know!
