I don't know how to rate this. :( I should have stopped at book 3, when there was a happy ending. The ending was heartbreaking, thankfully he didn't die but damn! I think he did it for a reason, something to do with that letter and possibly being brainwashed when they had him but I don't really know. I am very emotional right now, I love Joshua. I am going to read book 5 but not very happy right now.

*I received an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion*

Robin Woods surprises and stuns with the latest installment of her Watcher series. Ms. Woods teased us by ending her (then) trilogy with a nice bow on the package, and then she went and wrote a followup to The Sacrifice. And not only that, she split the follow up into two parts! After this amazing book, part 2 will be headed our way next year. Take joy, lovely readers.

All our favorite characters are back in The Fallen: Aleria, Joshua, Gabriel, Ian, Bowen, and Tyran. And there are some twists and turns beginning in chapter one. After reading this book, I have now become a huge Tyran fan (I won't say why especially for fear of spoilers), but I will tell you that he is super sexy and super yummy. We get to see the softer side of this bad boy vamp, but don't worry--he's not too soft.

Ali continues to have conflict in her Watcher world--both with her mortal (and immortal) enemies, and the emotions she harbors internally. She has some big choices to make in this book--maybe even bigger than in the first three books. And it's hard to predict what she will choose.

Grab a copy of this book and hang on for a wild ride. Ms. Woods gives us nonstop action and tugs at our heartstrings from start to finish. I think I even got teary-eyed at some parts. Or maybe it was just drool I was wiping from dreaming about Tyran. Either way, you'll love The Fallen: Part One and will be screaming for more in the anticipated Part Two.

Book 4 of the Watchers series finds all of the characters we love and love to hate come together in battle but who's on what side could be surprising! There's a new evil released that will require those who understand its implications to re-evaluate friend and foe in light of this greater darker power.

Woods continues to pull the reader into the story with plot twists and piercing dialog that makes it difficult to set the book down. Her characters continue to grow and become more multi-faceted with each book. This book - aptly named "part I" leaves the reader responding "Really! I have to wait for a resolution?!?!" Part II can't come soon enough!

I received this book as a gift, and there are some pretty unexpected turns for our beloved characters. It will break your heart, but later, your heart just might be pieced back together (although, no promises). Robin Woods continues to hone her ability to make readers laugh and cry and snuggle under the covers in fear or suspense, all in the same scene. It's a red-eye sort of book; you won't be able to sleep or eat until you land.

Of all the books in the series, I can safely say that this one messed with my emotions the most. Just when you think you've got the direction of the plot guessed, it completely blindsides you all over again. The Fallen: Part One is gripping, emotional, sensual, and electric. I definitely recommend this book to diehard vampire and fallen angel fans. This book is fresh and well-worth the hype.

I didn't find this set until this book came out. I read the first 50 pages of it not knowing ANYTHING of the series. It was my mission to buy the books so I could read just to get to these 50 pages and beyond. It's been a long time since I've been so emotional over characters in books. I am so happy I found that excerpt by accident.

Again, another hit for Ms. Woods. This one surprised and stunned me the most. I felt like I was right there with the characters. I laughed, I cried, and changed my mind about several characters. This series twists at every turn.

Great book!

I'm really enjoying this series! I just hate that I just finished part one of the last book. I'm definitely going to start reading part two immediately!

I am so glad that this got made into a part 1 and a part 2. There are so many great details, but the pacing of the book does not slow.
