I really enjoyed this one.

It's the prequel to a series I haven't read yet but I felt the need to read from the very beginning. At the start Robert is a six year old boy and I wasn't sure if I fancied a drawn out fictitious autobiography. I'm so glad I persevered.

Robert narrates his life story from six right up to his late twenties. He has a hard start in life, neglected and abused by the people who were supposed to care for him. It's a gripping read because we learn about his emotional developme

This isn’t a love story. There are no steamy sex scenes as such! This is the life story of a beautiful person who you have probably meet in Fallen Angel series, and if by any chance you haven’t had the opportunity to read book one, two and three, no worries!

Robert is a hard man with a big heart and he is one of the characters that you just can't forget. He'll be in my heart forever.

There's actually no words to express how much I loved Robert's POV. I read Fallen Angel I & II, and I was also hooked from page 1. But reading Robert's story, what made him be the man he is, helped me to understand a lot more about his behavior.
I read Robert, after reading Fallen Angel I, and then I read Fallen Angel II. Robert's story was amazing, he dealt with an awful hand of cards from such a young age, but he was able to overcome every obstacle life put on his path.

I have to say this is a must read as part of the Fallen Angel series, its a great insight into the main character Robert Stone, it tells u all about him, his horrific childhood, his teenage years living on the streets, his luck at finding someone to take him under their wing, his lifelong friendship with his street sidekick Travis. I was hooked on this series from page 1 of the first book, its fabulously written, full of tension, you can feel the hairs on your neck stand up at times. It has ...more

Review for Robert
Robert is the lead male character from the Fallen Angeles series. Don't worry if you haven't read any of the series yet (why not?????) This can be read as a standalone, or as a prequel to the series.
In this book we find out more about the man that is Robert Stone and his journey to becoming a very powerful man. In the series so far we have only learnt snippets about his life, here we learn about his past and how it's shaped his life l

Robert is the prequel of Tracie Podgers Fallen Angels series, and luckily for me it can be read as a standalone as I haven't read any of the other books. I also hold my hand up to not reading the synopsis for this before accepting to review it either, I liked the look of the cover and went by that. Luckily for me, that led to me finding an absolutely fabulous book! Being the prequel to a series called Fallen Angel, I assumed these books were going to be about, well, angels that had fallen!

Book Review - Robert by Tracie Podger - 4 deep and twisted but thoughtful stars

So I have a confession to make (not a church one, Robert wouldn’t like that at all), because although the author is known to me, I hadn’t read any of her work before.

Meaning, i’m going to be one of the few people who is picking up this book totally unawares of who Robert Stone is.

But that’s a great thing. Because for me, mine are a fresh pair of eyes to see if this prequel stands up on it’s own, and the answer to that

Where do I start with Robert?

This is a prequel to Fallen Angel Part 1, where we delve into the life of the mysterious Robert Stone.
The question has always been, who is Robert Stone? What makes this man who he is in the series? Well, I can tell you, it's all here. The good, the bad and the ugly....and the super sexy.
It's one of those once in a life time books that draws you in from page 1, keeps you into the story, and baffles you along the way. But remember, Robert Stone doesn't do pity and sy

The life and times of Robert Stone
I must say I didn't know what to expect from this book but I enjoyed reading about about how Robert had to survive in the real world and how much more he had to endure so much more than a six year should. This being said I feel it made him into the man that he is. He showed compassion well beyond his years.
The story is told in Roberts POV and we are taken throughout his life until adulthood. This is not a romance and there are no sex scenes, just life evolving a

I was given this book in turn for an honest review!!!

Robert’s life as a child was far from pleasant, at six years old his parents were killed and he went to live with his crazy religious aunt in America. She had rules and if he didn’t follow them he was cruelly punished. At eleven years old, feeling abandoned and alone he decided to run away. Life on the streets was tough but he learnt how to survive.

Robert’s teenage years were spent running errands for a well respected business man; i

I enjoyed reading the rest of the Fallen Angel books a lot and I was really anxious to read Robert’s story. I always thought of him as the ultimate bad boy but knowing his background definitely added more layers to his character.

The story is one of the most heartbreaking books I’ve read recently. Portraying the story of boy who cannot trust anyone and can depend only on himself, the book brought tears to my eyes more than once. Every single word pulled me even deeper into Robert’s early years an

Favorite Quotes:

“Vassago was a fallen angel, Joe, but one with a good heart. He’s the discoverer of the lost and hidden.”

“The thing I thought of the most, when I looked at that memorial plaque on the bench, was the dash. That little line between the date Joe was born and the date he died. That dash resembled his whole life, his achievements and his family. That dash was more important than the dates themselves.”

Robert is an essential prequel to the Fallen Angel series, and as tragic as

From being six years old Robert Stone has had his fair share of abuse and neglect from the very people he should of been able to count on, to love and care for him... His own family, when they are involved in a car crash the tears don't fall, isn't he supposed to feel something?

Robert is soon sent to live with his aunt in America, the worst and best thing to happen to him,his aunt was an evil witch and didn't like her from the start she blamed Robert for everything.

I know many readers do not like books published from a different character's point of view. I love them, a lot. Usually because I hate for stories to end. I want to know MORE about the characters, their lives, what makes them tick.

Well, we found out what makes Robert tick.

My heart broke and cried for the young Robert, left behind to a cruel world at the age of 6.

Moving to America was the worst and best thing to happen to Robert. We see his transformation, but with an underlying underst

Robert is an amazing soul who has finally found his place in life. In this book, you are able to follow Robert from the moment his life took a turn as a you child in England to now.

Having read the Fallen Angel series by this author, I was so excited to hear there would be a novel about our Robert Stone. Wanting to know his back story and how he became the man he is, had me sold!

It begins with Robert as a child and progresses to his adult years. I absolutely loved the writing in this novel and the way the author made you feel ALL the feels! Anger and pity to empathy and pride.

Robert's POV of the Fallen Angel Series is just what I needed to understand this whole series. i feel in love with all of these books but this one of Robert put everything in perspective. Robert was a broken little boy, never really truly loved or belonged anywhere. Battered and beaten he finally took matters into his own hands and started standing up for himself. This book will take you on Robert's journey of his life and how he overcame struggles and came out on top. I strongly recommend this ...more

I was a little concerned that I hadn't read Fallen Angel when I picked up this book but I needn't have been. After all it's the prologue and Robert's story of how he got to be the man he is at the beginning of Fallen Angel.

This book wasn't what I expected, and it certainly didn't turn out as I anticipated, but that's a good thing. It covers some tough topics but in a way that makes it easy to read and handle.

Wow, this book was just fantastic. From the first page, I was completely hooked.
I thought I loved Robert Stone before but his life story just secured his place in my heart even more.
I was enthralled with every part of his story and saw how he became the man I adore in Fallen Angel.
My one criticism with this book is that it finished! I just wanted to hear more, more, more.
This lady is an amazing writer and I'm impatiently waiting for more from her.
