Melanie Tomlin had just successfully made a very creative and entertaining story full of surprising scenes that will make you love this book.

As always! I’m a craver for vampire stories. That’s what I came upon seeing the cover. I just didn’t expect it to be so different from the other vampire books, and all I could say is that the author just made me love her.

***** 3.5 Stars *****

I loved the world the author created. Vampires and werewolves born into the world when Satan fell from heaven. Angels with different views on life. And earth bound angels waiting for the apocalypse. Everything was creative and interesting. Unfortunately, I felt like the characters needed to be more developed. I also found Helena's rants and commentary on what was going on a bit annoying.

I thought the story would be more steamy. Helena and Danny form a physical relationship,

Angel's Kiss by Melanie Tomlin
Genres: Paranormal
1 Star

Sections ridiculously long and drawn out, making reading it laborious.

The action makes you want to roll your eyes.

The redundancy bored me to near comatose.

It had a decent start then died a painful death.

I tried numerous times to get back into it, just in case it was my mood and not the book.
Finally realized it's the way the story is written that is the problem.

The action is mostly the heroine running around talking about how she is chan

This should have been a better book. As it is, the narrative was a bit wooden and sections dragged enough that I skimmed.

Melanie Tomlin, or Queen M—as I call her—created a very entertaining and intriguing story that will make you want to live in her books. For all I know, she could be the next Anne Rice, and this book will be the next big thing in theaters.

Angels and Vampires have a special place in my heart. This book has been recommended to me, and upon seeing the cover, I was intrigued, confused even. Why is it entitled Angel’s Kiss when the cover shows a bloody lip? I mean, it shows on the cover that it was a

What a really good story. Helena lived a rough life until the night she got bit by a vampire and not only lived, but killed the vampire. When Danny was trying to come to Helena's rescue, he planned on killing the vampire (as he is a demon. vamp, were killer), but found Helena instead. He needs to make sure she isn't evil. If she is, he'll need to kill her.
But Helena is not evil. She's a sweetheart with a pure heart. She finds out that in order to survive, she has to kill vampires. When she and D

A very different vampire story

My first thought was that this was going to just another novel about vampires. It was quite different and thoroughly enjoyable.

Well it's hard to review a book with title like this...although there was a lot of romance and feelings and little passion, to disappoint those who are looking for a passion book....
She was a very unfortunate person who struggled all her life and always innocent but blaming herself many times because of the situations and people she encountered. When she finally thought her life was about to end it just begun...because of the unusual and rare situation, you might say, rare in all

I did not know what to expect when I picked up this book but it had me captivated from the beginning. The author has created a unique character in Helena, a woman whose past shapes her present completely. She has no sense of self-worth and no understanding of what she has become. The story introduces her to a whole new world of angels and vampires and werewolves but Helena herself is something completely new with unknown abilities and I found it fascinating. The book ends on a good note and leav ...more

Hard to put down

When it started thought this would be one of those vampire partnered with an angel stories....nope!! Main character has had a hell of a life and decided that she is ready for it to end on her terms...but it doesn't go according to plan. Vampire kills her but she's not dead and he is, then the adventure begins! Well written, good paced book...enough details to picture what's happening without being drowned and a lot of action....with a hint of romance thrown in. Great opening to w

I really enjoyed Melanie Tomlin's take on angels and other paranormal creatures. I love paranormal books and this one is so refreshing. She draws you in with her twist on how we think of paranormal creatures and the action is nonstop. I couldn't put the book down and fell in love with Helena and Danizriel. I can't wait to see where their story takes them in the next book! ...more

A lot going on...

Angel's Kiss is full of action, and feels like you are constantly on the go. There is enough quiet moments to gather your thoughts, then its off to the next vampire hunt, or training to further Helena's skills, or testing herself to test her limits. Like I said, a lot going on, but very engaging. Glad I read it.

Different and Interesting

A different type of story about Angel's. Demons and other types of immortals. Full of action and adventure with some inspiring characters and some that are not quite what they seem. A good read from beginning to ending and looking forward to book 2 in this series.

Pretty good

I loved the take on heaven vs hell and really enjoyed the book. However, I wish there had been a little more to the book or more details. Im sure the second book will be good and continue the story but I wish there was more of a cliff hanger and qhat not. Either way still a good book

Good idea, not good implementation

Idea is novel. Sorry starts well and appears to be heading in an novel direction for this genera. Unfortunately it takes a wrong turn and strays. For me. That killed it.

Was simply brain candy. I loved Danny but seriously wanted to bitch slap her a few times for all her whining.
All in all a good story but needs more development. I hope books 2 & 3 are stronger but won't bother reading unless they come up free to read.

She is deter to live with him

Liked it and was annoyed by her constant fumbles. I'm dying to know what happens with them both. Will they make it out and continue to both exists in Earth? I guess I must read the next one.

Pretty interesting story

I enjoyed the plot. The concept was fascinating, a normal average girl becoming something fantastic like she did. I would have preferred less sexual content and was personally bothered by the comments about the Bible having errors in it.

Angel Kiss

Different for sure. It starts very, very slowly. I was beginning to wonder how many times we could go through that same scenario. It picked up more than half way through and ended reasonably well. It might be a good Sunday afternoon read. I won't recommend it.
Jennifer Holzapfel
I really enjoyed this first in series book. The only thing I wish was that there was a prologue, as the book started in mid action. It contains angels, earth bound angels, vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural creatures. I plan to add the next book to my ear growing TBR pile.

Angel’s Kiss

This book was an interesting read as it gave hints and clues to how one could have been taught about angels, demons, heaven and hell. I am sure book 2 will shed some more light on the fate of Danny and Helena.

Not too bad, it was a little bit of a struggle to start, but once it got rolling, it was good. I might have a look at this series.

I wanted to like this book. I really did. Just didn’t grab my interest.

What a great different take on Angels and Demons. I can’t wait to see what happens to Helena and Danny. Let’s hope that all gets resolved with the Angels.
