Mrs. Tiffany, girl, girl, girl. I have to say, I am totally in awe of this book! I loved it. I read it straight through and the ending was a WTH moment for me (which I love btw). I have to say that it was such a refreshing paranormal book. I loved both lead characters, neither one was obnoxious and they complimented each other very well. I'm so excited to read the next and can't wait til it's out. I will say if you want to read something unique and fresh, this is definitely a book to check out. ...more

I didn’t know this would be a spin-off of The Saving Angels trilogy!! I LOVED that Mark, Krista, and the whole band make appearances in this novel! I think the original magic from the Saving Angels trilogy was a bit lost, but I still really enjoyed Jordyn’s story.

Jordyn is the polar opposite of Krista. As one daemon says,

“You’re one freaky bitch.”

Jordyn’s like the bad-ass, hot tempered, strong, stubborn, rebellious teenager that I wish I had the guts to be when I was younger.

4 stars - A fresh take on the world of daemons that will have you swooning over Emrys!

What can I say, this is a Tiffany King book. I always love her books. But this is the first time I've read anything paranormal from her so this was a new journey for me. What I found was a fresh take on the world of Deamons that had me swooning over Emrys!

Emrys. Still so mysterious, I'm totally in love with this boy. I want to know more about him. But what I do know is that he has PERFECT timing and wow can thi

Paranormal is not by preferred genre and within that genre angels are my least favourite mythical characters. And on top of that Daughter of Smoke and Bone has set the standard of angel books for me so most others I read fall far short of that. Jordyn had to do a lot to impress me and make me overlook my initial doubts. But it did, I enjoyed this book and I found it a quick, entertaining read.

My Recap :

Jordyn is practically a daemon killer machine. She is an orphan and lives with her au

When I first read a sneak peek at the first chapter of this book, my first thoughts were of Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series, my all-time favorite series of books that I've ever read. I was a little worried having that in mind as I sat down to read this book, but I knew I would enjoy it anyway because Tiffany is made of mucho awesomesauce and never disappoints me.

I was NOT disappointed in any way.

OMG! Words cannot begin to describe just how much I enjoyed this book. Time was lost

Light but entertaining YA Angel/Demon paranormal romance. Manages to keep it light and balance YA romance with paranormal story. Nothing amazing, but quite readable and a welcome change from overly emo paranormal romances.

This surprised me. It jumps into the action straightaway. I didn't realise it was a spin off of another series.

I first saw Jordyn earlier this year and after reading a sexy excerpt, I knew I had to read this! Not to mention, it's Tiffany King. And I love everything I've read by Tiffany. So this was a no-brainer!

I do feel like a lot of the book was setting everything up for what was to come towards the end. I'm glad we got to know Jordyn's character and I love that Tiffany didn't info-dump on us. She didn't hesitate in throwing us into this paranormal world, but she also didn't overload my brain either.

OH MY GOD!! I can honestly say that I am struck speechless, like seriously speechless. I was like wait what and then I was like OMG and then I was like No and then UGH no freaking way! Now I’m like please give me the next book, like I needed it yesterday! Ok so this is a wicked twist on angels, daemons, and soul traders.

I haven’t read a paranormal book in a while so I was a bit nervous when starting this one. I love the genre but I wasn’t sure what to expect. Tiffany did not disappoint though. This book was wonderful.

The Characters

Jordyn is our main female character. Her witty dialogue makes for a very fun read. She talks how I would expect a smart-alleck teen to talk. Her “truth” cracked me up time and again. Her sarcasm reminded me of myself at

Tiffany King has done it again with Jordyn! I just finished The Saving Angels Series a few weeks ago, and was excited that Jordyn would be out soon! I also WON an Copy of the book from Mrs. Tiffany King herself!!!! Eeeeeekkkk!!!!

Jordyn is a Daemon Ass Kicking Expert. She can take on 1, 2 , or who knows how many Daemon on at once, and they are all toast when they meet her! She has been told since she met all the Guides and Protectors that she is "special." She'd give ANYTHING to be normal. Her fi

At the beginning I was a little annoyed with Jordyn, but I really like her snark, her attitude, her ability to kick ass, and she's not a cold, shut off person - though she has reason to be.
The book drags a bit, really stretching out a budding romance with Jordyn and a Soul Taker. But it shows her character and gives her a chance of something that is so utterly important - a sense of freedom. Freedom from lies and secrets, freedom from responsibility (even if it's just an afternoon trip away), fr

This book is a Wonderful spin-off of my Favorite Tiffany King series called The Saving Angels series!

It brings back all of the Amazing characters from The Saving Angels series we fell in Love with as well as introduces some new ones too. All the characters intertwine their story with that of Jordyn's. Jordyn is our new Spunky, Firecracker character with an Attitude to boot, Sarcastic as Hell, but Sweet natured too ;) She has some Pretty Special abilities... one is she can Kick some Major Booty!

Mystery, suspense, romance, and a whole lot of adventure:

Jordyn is a fighting machine. With no memory of her earlier life, with a rigorous training routine, her life is all about fighting.

But what she wants is a little less aggravation and a little more normalcy. As much as she enjoys her duties – despatching Daemons with her honed skills – there’s a big lacking in her life which requires a good deal more attention from some good-looking boy and a good deal less attention from dark forces.

This wonderful spinoff novel really had me on pins and needles as I read. It picks up a few years after the conclusion of the phenomenal Saving Angels series, and I was a complete fan girl stalker when I found out that King was working on a spinoff series!! I absolutely adore the Saving Angels novels and couldn’t wait for this one to come out. And, I certainly wasn’t disappointed! King has written another masterpiece, just like every other novel that

Jordyn is a kick ass daemon hunter. Emrys is a cunning and charismatic soul trader. From the moment they meet, they are instantly drawn to one another. Jordan doesn't know why she is so intrigued by him or what he wants from her but she can't stop thinking about him or feeling butterflies when he is around. It is instantly obvious that he is as taken with her as she is with him and despite her family's warnings to stay away from him, she can't help the magnetic pull he has on her. The question i ...more

First I must say, Tiffany King is AWESOMESAUCE! I've read all her books, and having a spin off of the Saving Angels series, is well Awesomesauce with a cherry on top.
I loved seeing the characters from the Saving Angels series in this book. Krista and Mark were my favorites. Jordyn, whom they adopted, is special. They were TOLD she lost her family and memory in a car crash. Jordyn is so special that she gets training from that , oh so AWESOME Arch Angel, Haniel! Yes Haniel is back. If you haven'

I was so excited when Tiffany announced that she was writing Jordyn. I missed her Saving Angels Series and was glad when she was bringing it back with a spin-off. With all this excitement brought high expectations and Jordyn was in no way a disappointment. I loved it!

Jordyn is definitely one of my favorite heroines ever. She's extremely snarky and sarcastic. Some of the things she said had me laughing out loud at my kindle. Her existence is extremely hard and confusing. She's the only one of her

I just happened across this book somehow. I have read Tiffany King’s Saving Angels Series and loved it, so I thought I’d give this one a try. This story incorporates the characters from the Saving Angels Series, with a new one added in, Jordyn. Jordyn is an anomaly. She is stronger than the Guardians and Protectors, but she doesn’t know why. She is a 17 year old girl who has no recollection from her life before moving in with Krista and Mark. She is constantly training, since she is a Daemon hun ...more

I will be the first to admit that I'm not a big fan of angel type books. Mist of them have characterseho are less than angelic and cuss like sailors. However, I do enjoy a good paranormal book about demon trappers and "Jordyn" is the perfect mix of demons and angels.

17 year old Jordyn went to live with her newlywed aunt and uncle a year ago after the death of her parents. She cannot remember her past and although she knows she is loved she still feels like a freak. You see, Jordyn suffers from t

Where did I begin?! Do I start with the awesomeness of this book? Do I tell you about the action at every turns of the book? Or do I tell you the crazy twist and turns of Jordyn's life? Oh, who am I kidding?? I am going to start with Emrys!!

Best part of the book: Tiffany brings back all the characters from The Saving Angels series and adds a few more.....YES ..... Emrys!! Oh I was not to sure about him at first because he was a Soul Trader and something seemed "shady" about him. However, the mor

I have to admit, I was afraid I was going to hate this book. I love so many of Tiffany King's books but I did not love the Saving Angels series (at least book 1..that was the only one I read) so I was afraid because this was a spin off of that series I wasn't going to like the books. But since I've loved so many other books by Tiffany King lately I thought I'd give these a try, especially because this one was free on my Kindle app. I was really glad I tried it.

First off I am a huge fan of this book! You have the girl who kicks some major butt, Jordyn, and the hot Soul Trader, Emrys. What more can you ask for in a book? I am a huge fan of books that the girl doesn't need a guy. Jordyn, to say the least is epic! She is able to kick Daemon butt all on her own. Emrys, can I kiss you? Man that boy sounds amazing!

Although I was a huge fan of this book I felt that it ended very fast. Throughout the book Jordyn is either A) fighting Daemon's or B) Making out

I picked this up last night as I have read her previous series and was curious about this new book. I was pleasantly surprised, plenty of action and romance to keep everyone happy with lots of secrets thrown in. I know how I would feel if I had no memory of my past and was thrust into a new family albeit they are heavenly guardians but still the thirst for knowledge would persist. Her Arch Angel mentor is keeping secrets from her and being an anomaly has its good side and bad side, least of all ...more

Jordyn is one bad ass chick! I honestly don't think I've read a character like her that is all around that bad ass! Lol on top of being tough as nails and super awesome with her daemon fighting skills she also has a smart mouth!! Which I love! Dripping with sarcasm is my kind of gal!! Jordyn knows she's good and she knows she's practically invincible and has no problems laying it out for everyone to know!
But being treated differently and with more care is starting to grate on her nerves and when

Jordyn you know she's kickass when she doesn't fall for Emrys charms, "why? Because I'm not falling for your horsesh**? Haniel says you're dangerous and he hasn't lied to me yet." Emrys sweet lord in heaven I love him, "I make it a rule to never turn around when a striptease is happening in front of me." He's just so hot blooded, "this," he said, crushing his lips to mine." He's flirty, "guess not," he said, laughing. "Maybe you should hold my hand to make sure I don't fall and hurt myself." He' ...more

DNF @ 25%. Maybe that was a little soon to DNF, but I'd been struggling with it for the last 15% or so.

I liked the beginning, how she went after the demons and just being within metres of her makes them combust. And Emrys' introduction was kinda fun.

I think it was just everything else. We didn't seem to get much information on anything else though, or I was having that much trouble with the style and plot that it just didn't register, and I just lost interest.

I was looking forward to reading this for a while but was a little let down. I'm not saying it was a bad book, just not as good as I had hoped. It was a new twist combining angels and daemon hunters which I liked. It seemed like a combination between Half-Blood and Hush Hush. Both series which I adore, by the way. So I was really excited for this. My only complaint was that the relationship between the heroine and the hero took a while to get going. And then it seemed like the same things were r ...more
