Omg, I loved this book!! I am picky about angel books, but this one was fantastic. It doesn't preach about religion or talk mostly about God. You've got a couple of sexy fallen angel warriors fighting demons and protecting the ones they love. It's well written and full of action! Each angel has their own "burden" and deals with things differently. Lucius is the leader and the others are loyal to him, even if it means getting kicked out of heaven. The heroine in this book is so loving and nurturi ...more

Oh my goodness! This book was amazing! I could not put it down and when I had to I did not want to. It was packed with action, mystery, fallen angels and love. You should know I love books about angels, fallen or not, they are all just amazing in their own way. I must say I have never read a book about fallen angels quite like this one before. I loved that it was unique, there are so many that are the same this that or the other...

I really enjoyed this read, following the angels who have fallen out of favour. This book is very slick, engaging and I adore the fact that the angels have each been deprived of a sense, so have to rely on each other. Very different, and that is refreshing to read in this genre. The characters have depth, intrigue and a real human side to them which really helps this book zip along. I also love the cover, and would buy this book from a look of that alone!

Another cracking read from Moon Rose Publ

Holy wow! These are like Boondock Saints meets The Prophecy, with a bit of sexy thrown in for good measure. I absolutely love the little idiosyncrasies that make up each of The Fallen and fell head over heels for Persephone and Coriander. In the first book we get to meet everyone and find out a bit more about who’s who, what their story is, and what they have to do with the big picture. In a series with the potential for several books, it’s important not to skimp in individual installments, so I ...more

Too many main characters

The main characters of this novel were supposedly Lucius and Persephone. But they barely interact in this book at all. Do they end up together? Yes, like 5 mins into this book. Is this book about their love story, no.

This book is one big set up for all the other main characters' stories.The author was too busy telling everyone else's story to tell the story of Lucius and Persephone. That was really disappointing.

Theme and story line were promising but it was too much for

A really good read, I was a little skeptical at first with yet another story about angels and demons but this one had me gripped from the first few pages, so gripped that I instantly started reading the second one right after.

I had mixed feelings about this book. When it first started I was really into it and totally digging the story. With Fallen Angels what's not to love? But then there was insta-love. Now hold on a second before you condemn me for this. I don't mind insta-love for the most part. But I don't like it when it happens within the first 15% of a book. And when it happens the very same day they meet. It's not like I didn't like the characters together because I do, I just wish they had to fight for it. I ...more

This book was interesting. I loved the concept of fallen angels, bad boys, demons and sex all rolled into one. When the author wants you to feel hot, you do! It's quite the well written piece. I'm not sure how I feel about the religious undertones. I tend to stay away from books like that. But, with all the action, sex and great story line going on, you can miss it if you're not looking.

A few parts had me wondering if I missed something, or left me a little confused. But all in all, this is jus

Lucius The Fallen
By Tara S. Wood, Lorecia Goings

They are six of the fallen angels that are on Earth serving Him and slaying demons for their redemption. The six find themselves fighting a demon one night and run into Persephone trying to help a child escape from a demon. This fast paced start begins a story full of lots of action and steamy scenes. You will find yourself enthralled with each character and wanting more of their story. Fortunately for those of us that love Tara Wood’s stories ther
It was okay good even but it was to chaotic . I had to go back and reread sometimes because I became confused.

For a powerful story line, Lucius was a very engaging book, but there were too many issues that I had a hard time wrapping my brain around or couldn’t agree with. For starters, Persephone bumps into the brothers one unfortunate night and they (kidnap her) bring her to their home. So technically they are all strangers, kidnappers and she should be wary of trusting them. Especially, after a night of watching them fight and destroy a Strange creature in the alley and escaping by the skin of her tee ...more

I would give this 3.5 stars, but rounded up to 4. It had a good storyline, but there was almost too much going on. It would bring up a new set of characters, and I'd have to think about where their story left off. It wasn't a cliffhanger, but it didn't leave a number of doors open. Even though I didn't really like Persephone, I think I would have enjoyed more time spent on the romance between her and Lucious. She was overly concerned with the well-being of others that it made her incredibly naïv ...more

Lucius: the Fallen by Wood. I'm an atheist but with Catholic upbringing so this is a slant on an old story of angels or archangels like Lucifer being kicked out of heaven. In this story there are 6 angels and Lucifer is still their enemy as well as Satan. Bit of bible bashing with God saying he is always with them. The characters are all unique and we get to see the bad apple which is nearly their undoing.

Great Dialogue!

It was a fresh unique take on angels and mythology. The banter between characters was fun and witty. I only occasionally had issues with flow of the storyline, but it was well worth the read. Great story, but what I loved most was the dialogue between characters. The dialogue was sharp , crude at times (but in a good way, lol), and non stop fun. Can't wait to read about Jude!

I tried

This story was a bit disappointing. I expected more from angels and someone who is supposed to be gifted. Falling for an angel is fine, but falling and sleeping with said Angel the first day is a bit much. Tried to get into it, but this one was not my style.

It wasn’t my cup of tea in that I really thought there would be more in depth character building, or at least a stronger redemption story. Instead we have gangsta like angels and no real connection. I was getting excited with coriander but that’s about it.

So rushed and confusing i didn't really understand why anything was happening. The character names are ridiculous, a lot of scenarios absurd and it all ends on a cliffhanger that isn't actually explained very well.

Won't be continuing with the series.

Took me a while to get into this and connect to the characters.
The storyline was fantastic, gripping and action packed.
I’m definitely going to read book 2! Jude has me very intrigued.

This book totally rocks!!! Sexy, bad boy fallen angels, demons and love. Very well written. Each angel has their own burden to carry and Lucius is there to help resolve any conflict.
Persephone is a trusting gentle soul but her sister, Coriander has a kick butt attitude that was delightful.
The author did an amazing job with the characters and their attitudes as well as a great storyline.
I would recommend reading this book.

Gave up after struggling through a mere 7%.
Confusing plot, badly written text, so many characters thrown at you that you care about precisely none of them and nothing coherent enough to make you want to keep reading.
A shame because I liked the casting out scene right at the start.

Let me first start off saying I absolutely love the way this author writes. The scenery, the emotions, and the characters are so visual I felt I was inside the book. The sex scenes were well written, not smutty, but just enough to make you blush as you read. Yet, I did not like the story.

I'm a novice when it comes to angel books and maybe that is why I wasn't understanding why things happened as they did. The crossover from biblical figures to Greek mythology, Egyptian Gods, demons, white light

I was given this book as a gift from the author. The beginning was a little confusing, but as you read further everything started to come together and make sense. I loved the interaction between the Fallen Angel Brothers. The insults to each other were very entertaining and I found myself laughing out loud alot. There is a lot of conflict between the brothers. But when one or more of them were in trouble, they were right there backing each other up as brothers always do. The scenes between Luciu ...more
