Sammael – call him Sam – was an angel once. An angel of death. But the dispassionate, watch-from-above thing just wasn’t working for him when it meant watching evil torture innocent souls day in and day out. It might have cost him his wings, but these days, he gets to apply the direct method on the bad guys. Problem is, what’s making his life dif...more

Yes you have!

This book has such a perfect bad-fallen-angel anti-hero, OMG!

He is bad. He doesn't care about it.
He doesn't plan to change, it's just the way he is.

She wants to kill him.
She doesn't care what it'll take to do it.

I've been thinking how to write this review and I realise this is gonna be a gushing one, and probably totally idiotic because I just want to say this is BRILLIANT and I completely and totally LOVE this book!

One of the BEST PNR books I have ever read! Seriously!

You'll definitely Fall for Cynthia Eden's Angel Betrayed!

Sammael was once an Angel of Death until the day he could no longer stand by while innocent lives were being taken, and for that – he Fell. Centuries’ walking the earth as a Fallen has taught Sam two things; you can’t trust anyone and the bad guys aren’t just the humans and demons that walk beside him.

Review posted at demon lover's books and more

With sexy Fallen Angels, and a sultry half-succubus, the pages steam from page one.

This is one of those novels that stuck with me long after I read it. I kept having daydreams about my own Fallen Angel, because, wow, Sammael is one sexy hero. The shadowy image of his black wings is such a nice touch. He’s a Fallen, and he’s one of those bad boys who doesn’t care about anything. But when Seline dances into his life, he realizes that it kind of sucks no...more
Sam is a fallen angel, he used to be the Angel of Death but he fell because he refused to atone for taking the lives of men who deserved it and now centuries later he is a powerful being and Seline the heroine needs his help.

Of course Seline is bait for him, she is a succubus who can drain energy from others by just a kiss but Sam is no fool and catches her and they strike a deal, she will help him get his brother Az, who has recently fallen. Seline wants freedom, she hates her demon side and is...more
His tongue licked her lips and stroked inside her mouth. Slow. Easy. As if he were sampling her. Her tongue slipped to meet his. To taste. To want. When he pulled back, she had to fight to keep her hands off him. His gaze studied her a moment, and she bared dared to breathe. "I'm not human," he finally agreed, his voice a deep rumble. "But neither are you, sweetheart. Neither are you."

Wow! I knew I would enjoy this book, but I had no idea just how much I would LOVE it. Cynthia Eden has quickly...more

WOW! Just WOW!!!

This is by far, my best experience with Cynthia Eden so far. The story offers bad-ass hero, tough heroine, viscious (and pretty f*cked up) villains, terrifying hellhounds (!), a scorching hot romance, and all around non-stop action. It keeps me awake because I can't stop reading it (even on the bus!).

This series intrigued me because the hero is not the "typical" hero. I mean, sure, we have bad-ass heroes in this kind of book, but Sammael (and the hero for the next book,...more
Action-packed, steamy, really entertaining story. I liked that the dialog and brief sentences revealed intentions, characterization and world building, instead of long narrative and internal monologues. It made for a very fast-paced reading and I’d like to read another installment.
HERO is a Rogue, a death angel fallen to earth because he took punishment in his hands. Powerful and ruthless, he doesn’t hesitate in eliminating his enemies, therefore he can’t understand why he wants to keep the sus...more
Was delightfully fun to read.
Excited for book 3.

“I figure you owe me, Fallen.”
“Seems you told me that before.”
“Well, yeah, I did. Because every time I turn around, you’re owing me.”


Oh...Cynthia Eden you did it again.I just can't resist reading your books.Once again here I am giving 5 stars to an incredible book.Angel Betrayed is an amazing addition to The Fallen series.Since Angel of Darkness I've been patiently waiting for Sam's story and finally I read it!!!
Wow...Sam and Seline????Talk about chemistry.Especially with an angel a...more

Growing up under the watchful eye of a punishment angel, Saline has been using her succubus gifts against the wicked since she was a teenager. But her latest mark is someone more powerful than she has ever encountered. Sammael is a fallen angel, capable of killing with just one touch. He sees through the wiles that usually work on other men --and quickly she realizes he could be the way to get her out from under Rogziel's thumb.

Thanks to her succubus gifts, a physical relationship develops right...more
Wow, this one turn up to be so good. Better than the first, Angel of Darkness.
Really love Sammael aka Sam. He still evil till the end, the fact that he fall in love with Seline don't change his devilish character a little bit.

Favorite quote :

“Angels . . .” Sam shook his head. “Sometimes, they’re just too damn cocky. Just because they’re high up on the food chain, it doesn’t mean they can’t still get eaten.”

Lucky, I got Angel in Chains (The Fallen, #3) by Cynthia Eden from netgalley. Woohooo, can't wait to read Az' story. Even I still prefer...more

Angel Betrayed is how paranormal romance should be! Fast furious and sexy! Over 6 years I have read tons of paranormal romance and have enjoyed a many of them, but as the years have gone by I find it harder to come upon true romance in the stories. Cynthia Eden hits the nail on the head with this one. Get ready for an emotional ride with characters you can read over and over again. My hats are off to you Cynthia and I CANT WAIT FOR THE REST!!!

I have never been an angel fan, but I absolute loved...more

So, I liked Sam in Angel of Darkness, Cynthia's first book in the 'Fallen' series. Yeah, I know, I know...he's bad. But really, he's not all bad...I knew that Sam had redeeming qualities and I was anxiously awaiting this book so that I could find out what they were.

I really like this series. I enjoy the bad, fallen angels - what girl doesn't like a bad boy? It's really no wonder angels feel NO emotion - how else could one be an angel of death? Sam's biggest downfall was that he DID f...more
3 1/2 stars.

ARC received from NetGalley

3 1/2 stars - Angel Betrayed is a story about a powerful fallen angel who falls in love with a beautiful half incubus girl. Sammael, known better as Sam, was once an angel of death. His orders were not to interfere, but to bring death to those who were on the "list." His job was not to judge or to feel anything regarding the deaths that he brought to various people. After many senseless deaths of children and women by brutal means, Sam decided that he woul...more
I am a big fan of Cynthia Eden, she is a master storyteller and her books are always memorable. I have read and loved her Night Watchers books and her Midnight books and was thrilled to see her enter the world of angels. This first book in this series, Angel of Darkness, introduced us to this world and once again affirmed my love for Cynthia. We meet the hero for Angel Betrayed, well I am not sure I would call him that, but we do meet Sam in the first book. He was an enigma for me at first, beca...more

Freedom is so close Seline can almost taste it. One last job, that’s it and she can finally be away from those that raised her. Killing Sammael won’t be an easy mark. He’s smart, doesn’t trust anyone and she doesn’t know what he is or what will kill him.

Sammael has been an angel of death for centuries. Now as a fallen angel he’s just as formidable and can still kill with a simple touch. Seline is hiding something and he’s sure of it. She may not know who he is, but he’s not sure about what she i...more
This one didn't really work all that great for me. I had a hard time buying into the relationship. For most of the book these 2 hated each other, yet slept together. It seemed like at every turn they kept telling the other how they couldn't trust the other one. Then all of a sudden after the action and things seemed resolved they couldn't seem to sacrifice fast enough to be together.

While I like the world this book is set in and some of the secondary characters, I hope the next book is better t...more

เราอยากอ่านเล่มนี้ตั้งแต่จบเล่มแรกในชุดแล้วล่ะค่ะ เพราะพระเอกเปิดตัวมาคล้ายคลึงกับไนออลมาก คือไม่รู้ว่า เป็นคนดีหรือคนร้าย ต้องใกล้จบเรื่องนั่นแหละค่ะ ถึงได้แน่ใจ แต่กระนั้นก็ไม่ใช่ว่า การกลายมาเป็นพระเอกจะทำให้แซมเป็นพระเอกแสนดีหรอกนะคะ เขายังคงลักษณะความเป็นตัวเองเอาไว้ชัดเจน

เรื่องนี้เป็นเล่มที่สองในชุด The Fallen ค่ะ เรื่องราวของเหล่าเทวทูตตกสวรรค์ ทูตของพระเจ้าที่พ่ายแพ้ต่ออารมณ์และความรู้สึก จนปีกถูกเผา และตกลงมาอยู่บนโลกมนุษย์

Fantastic Series!

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
Three and half stars. A big improvement over the first installment. The story is action packed and doesn't suffer from endless circular dialogue syndrome which seems to plague most of Eden's books. The world building is confused. I get the impression that the author had a cool concept but just can't be bothered to think it through. Like every other book I've read by the author, the central romance did nothing for me. Her characters seem to substitute tragic backstory for an actual personality. I...more
Better then the first. I LOVED this book. The sacrifices made by these two Others for love is crazy!! Sam had me tearing up man..gosh I loved it.
Loved it. It was just the right mix between action and love.
Momof3-Wanna be Kyle when I gro up~ Mal, come Play with me.
3.5 of it were definitely 4 star worthy, but it took me quite a while to get into the book. I honestly wasn't really feeling the first half of it, but the second half was really good. The not knowing who to trust and everyone having their own agenda and not being honest was...ugh...but when we got into the sacrifices and the emotions and choosing sides, I really liked it. There was some hotness, though not my kind, but overall it was worth the read, I'm not sure if I'm going to con...more
I freaking loved this one! Cannot wait for Az book.
So I took a break from reading this then came back. This second story in the Fallen series expands on the Angel storyline begun in Angel of Darkness.

Sam we meet in the previous book. He was somewhat of a shady/bad boy/fallen who embraced his darker side. Seline is a succubus and needs Sam for reasons of her own. Neither one trusts the other but they are powerfully sexually attracted to one another.

There is so much going on in this book and it is a full length novel. The action literally does no...more

Blackie's Stamp of Approval!!
Paranormal Haven
.... She moved to brush by Sam. He blocked her path. "Are you afraid?"
Let's recap. She had a psycho Fallen Angel on her trail, one who apparently wasn't going to stop chasing her until she was dead. She'd turned her back on Rogziel, and the guy wasn't exactly the forgiving sort. And, bonus, now it looked like Sam was in danger of serious dismemberment. "Damn straight I am."

Seline wants her freedom from the sadistic Angel who owns the pink slip to her soul, and the only badass she knows strong en...more
I decided to read Angel Betrayed after I saw some excellent buzz about it on Twitter and Goodreads and I’ve been on a bit of a paranormal streak so I decided to give it a go next.

I always enjoy a contentious start to a relationship between the hero/heroine and then enjoy watching how the author works them through their issues to their HEA. Bad-ass fallen angel Sam has been around the block a time or two and it’s going to take more than the super sexy Seline whose half succubus/half angel to get...more
