This book is action-packed, sexy, romantic and so much better than the first one. 4 well earned stars!

"Good God, she thought, as she stared up at the curve of his chin, the broad plane of his shoulders, and the vast expanse of muscle across his chest and midsection. I'm in bed with an archangel."


I had a very good picture in my head of Gabriel (view spoiler)

I loved it. To put it simply. It's sort of like a guilty pleasure reading this series. Adult fiction, sexy Angels, kick-ass female leads, peril, mysterious, brotherly bonds. I could keep going but I only have a limited amount of words. Gabriel was great to read about and Jules was amazingly smart and beautiful. The many different POVs at first were confusing but made complete sense towards the end, and I ended up enjoying reading from so many different characters both good and bad in nature. I c ...more

I'm sure the archess Samael wants is the one who belongs to Michael. Michael is the one who took Samael's place in Heaven and became the Old Man favourite. So now I can bet Sam wants to take something as equally important from Michael. Sam wants to hurt Michael the same way he was hurt when he lost his place as the Old Man's favourite archangel. That's the reason he came to earth: to get revenge.
I hope Max and Lilith will end up together. I like them so much.

Gabriel has been searching for his Archess, his soul mate, for two thousand years. The problem is that a team of Andarians are also searching for the Archesses, hoping to steal their powerful healing abilities. Samuel Lambent is also determined to track down an Archess, for reasons that he has yet to reveal.

Although Gabriel can flit anywhere in the world that has a door (using the archangels mansion) the group of archangels are based in America. However, Gabriel feels that Scotland is his real

I’ve been reading quite a bit recently. The reason for this is there are SO MANY GOOD BOOKS COMING OUT, and Messenger’s Angel is one of those.

The second book in the Lost Angels series (the first focuses on Uriel), this one is about Gabriel and his archess, Juliette. I really enjoyed Avenger’s Angel and waited quite impatiently for Messenger’s Angel to come out, and of course, the day it came out, I raced to the bookstore to get it.

Let me tell you, the wait was worth it.

I really looked forward to reading Messenger’s Angel by Heather Killough-Walden. I have a thing for the fallen angel trope and this one seemed interesting even while similar to others out there.

Messenger’s Angel is book two in this series. In book one, Uriel finds his archess, so the archangels now know that these archesses really do exist and the remaining archangels are ever hopeful that they, too, may at last find the one woman created especially for them. In this book, Gabriel is featured a

There are a lot of things that really kept me coming back to this book. After the first in the series, events were predictable, but I still wanted to see it through to the end.

But... Then at the end! There's a bit of the next book. Azrael's book. Dude. I want to read Azrael's book so bad. And I have to wait 6 months! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

This was even better than the first. Loved Gabriel and Juliette. I cant wait to read about Az and Sophie next. What I am dying to know is what the heck Samuel is up too. I am struggling to figure out of he is good or bad or just a combo of both. Whats his ultimate plan?

Death's Angel, book 3 of The Lost Angels series, is due to be released in Dec/Jan.
Romanticamente Fantasy
“Il messaggero dell’angelo” è l’atteso seguito del “La notte degli angeli caduti” e secondo volume della saga urban fantasy intitolata “Lost Angels”, scritta da Heather Killough-Walden. A mio avviso, con la lettura di questo libro, l’autrice si aggiudica un posto d’onore tra gli scrittori che meritano di essere ricordati.

I protagonisti sono l’Arcangelo messaggero Gabriele e la sua cherubina Juliette, ma, come nel primo libro, vi sono molti punti di vista che narrano la vicenda, oltre a quelli de

Zitat:
"Während sie seinen Blick erwiderte, schien sich die Zeit zu verlangsamen. Das Rauschen der Brandung an der Küste glich einer leisen Melodie, Möwen kreischten, der kalte Wind roch nach Salz. In Gabriels Haar sah sie Salzkristalle. Jetzt erschien er ihr wie ein Teil dieses Landes - unerschütterlich, hart, kompromisslos. Und die durchdringenden Augen wirkten sehr alt, von tausend Geschichten erfüllt."

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.

Quick & Dirty: An action-packed novel with great characters in an amazing setting of Scotland. This was a great follow-up novel in the Lost Angels series.

Opening Sentence: Juliette sidled back on the massive four-poster bed, a remotely hesitant part of her still wanting to get away.

The Review:

I was way more impressed with Messenger’s Angel than I was with Avenger’s Angel. Maybe it was because the series has been set up so I didn’t have to sit through long

Muy parecido al libro anterior. Es un poco difícil interesarse en la trama al principio, pero mejora al final.

Confieso que he seguido leyendo esta serie porque me intriga muchísimo el personaje del tercer libro, Azrael.

Lost Angels Book 2


Once again, Ms. Walden has surprised me with her amazing work! Messenger’s Angel was sexy, over flowing with action, suspense, drama, mystery and the steamy romance! I absolutely adored it! The way it was written down to the characters themselves had me hooked, and I looked forward to every moment of it.

I really, really liked this one!! Significantly more than the first one! I couldn't put it down. Once it finished, I sat back and tried to figure out why I liked it so much more than the first. Definitely the location. I'm a sucker for Scotland and the fact that Gabriel has the Scottish accent, dreamy! The pace of this one was much better as well. While I understand that there is a lot of explaining that needs to take place in the first book of any new series, but I felt that it was too repetiti ...more
