The Silk Road. In ancient times it was a well-established trade route that began in China. But to Larien, it is the veiled entrance to the underworld where no human belongs.

Jayla Protegenu is as typical as they come. She owns a chain of gyms in the San Francisco Bay Area, enjoys popcorn-and-movie night with her two best friends and writes for her local paper. But

The first Descendant in millennia with the power to use an ancient artifact is being hunted. By the good, the bad…and the worst.

Every rogue longs for a second chance, right? Wrong. Larien, former angel of The Host is not looking for redemption. What he needs hasn’t been seen in millennia but he’ll search the ends of the Earth to find it – from the hills of San Francisco all the way to…the Silk Road.

Jayla Protegenu learned as a child to call her protectors to keep at bay the things that

OK- I finally have time to update this review. I am a very harsh critic of mythology- it is what one of my degrees is in. So let me put that out there before I go on to say that this author REALLY captivated me with her take on Angels, the known mythology surrounding them and moving it into a whole new level for me!
This book lacked ... NOTHING! The characters are complex and wonderful. The story finds you falling down into a rabbit hole much Alice did to have her adventures in Wonderland and you

Enjoyed the world that TJ has created. Love Jayla & Larien.

Full Review:

Silk Road is a mix of mythology, fallen angels, demons and magic. We find a little bit of just about everything going on in this story. But TJ does a great job of blending them all together. While keeping us on our toes and I really enjoyed the main characters Larien & Jayla.

Larien, the dark brooding fallen angel who has sworn off love, humans and will just about everyone. He has been tasked to help a human find an an

Silk Road caught my attention from the very beginning. Hello Sexy fallen Angel who's a badass yes please!!!! T.J Michaels did an amazing job creating a world full with Demons, Angels and everything in between. I love her view on the whole Fallen Angels mythology. While reading this book I thought I knew what was going to happen, but

Silk Road by T.J. Michaels was an extremely original take on angels, demons, and everything in between. It is the first installment of the Seals of Destiny series. I must say that historically I do not prefer angels..what can I say? I am a very bad girl! After this book…maybe I will rethink this preference. T.J. Michales defined her characters with such clarity I could easily picture them in my mind and it was a lovely sight!

Kitty's Review - 4 Stars
T.J. Michaels totally opened my eyes to a whole new world of Fallen Angels. Strong, sexy, loving, mean and just plain irritating. Silk Roads was written with many facets to it. Ms. Michaels brings us Larien and Jayla in the first installment of “The Seals of Destiny” series and I so look forward to see where everything is going.

This is Larien and Jayla’s story but there were so many other characters introduced in

I think I was destined to love Silk Road from the very start because it was about my favorite theme- angels. And, these weren't just any angels. They were good, bad and everything in between. I was riveted from the very first page and I stayed that way until I finished the book many hours later. Silk Road was an excellent start to a promising new series and I can't wait to meet the next "seal of destiny".

Shelves: urban-fantasy
Larien is a fallen angel assigned the task to help a human find an ancient relic that only her power can call upon. Larien’s goal is to quickly complete the duty at hand so he can get away from humans and more importantly live in peace away from everyone. That is until he comes face-to-face with the beautiful and alluring Jayla Protegenu. Now, his vow to avoid love at all cost has flown out the window because of his desiring need to claim Jayla, a human nonetheless, as his mate.

I met this amazing author at AAD Summer Camp. & just by talking to her, I had to read this book. The characters are awesome. And the storyline is incredible. It's about fallen angels and the description she gave about the angels falling, I felt like I was there.

I loved this book. T.J Micheals always has edgy strong woman with men who complement them perfectly and this book was no disappointment.

Larien and Jayla are wonderful together and have the perfect amount of push and pull...add in biblical adventure with a touch of paranormal, urban, historical, and a thought provoking storyline and you have Silk Road.

I seriously hope that Ms. Micheals continues Larien and Jayla's quest for more Seals because in my heart of hearts I hope the story doesn't end wit

This was about angels and demons and everything in between. That kind of freaked me out. But the story was pretty good. The love scenes were pretty steamy. But it was hard to follow at times.
