ARC REVIEW

Only the Fallen is the first book of the UnHallowed series by Tmonique Stephens. Wow she really throws you in there. I love reading angel romance for the same reason I like reading mythology romance, I like to see what the author does with the lore. I love what Tmonique Stephens does. How she did the war of the angels kind of reminded me of The Prophecy, just the first one not any other crappy sequels and ooo Viggo Mortensen as Lucifer mmmmm, anyways I digress. The same darkness, the

OK I know I am partial to angels but this is an amazing read and my first read by this author. First the details and characters, then the plot and actions, the battles and deceit. Crap I could go on. This is a multifaceted read and high in the action and intrigue. The story and plot add some surprising twists and keep you on edge. The downside is it ends too soon but not without the author teasing us with the direction of the next read. This is a standalone but the action, and story does continu ...more

I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. They were really put in a tough spot to choice between love and closing a gateway to Hell. It is a bit of a shock to the system. I have never read anything by this author before but I want too. I know there are more books to come. I have not read many with Angels as the leads. A few with half-breed angels but now the full on winged version. It was a great first books. I am going to go start on the next one. Thank to the author for allo ...more

The book is a good paranormal romance read. The characters are good, strong, interesting, and they have good chemistry. The story is full of action, hot sexiness, twists, and turns. The book does end in a cliffhanger.

The Book Junkie Reads . . .
This one set me up for what I and hoping will be a dark, sensual fight for good, right, just of the world using myths and lore to convey passion, chemistry, destiny, redemption. My introduction to both Tmonique and The UnHallowed has me ready to take this journey. I want to be right there for every bit of action, all the intensity of the intrigue, feel the heat of desire, bite of passion, trip, stumble, fall of every twist. I want to fall full force in to the UnHallowed series.

For this chance a

This book was well plotted with interesting characters. I did enjoy it on many levels. However, I couldn't give it a rating higher than 3 because the editing was so abysmal. There were multiple errors on literally every page that threw me out of the narrative over and over again. It's a shame, really, because this has so much potential.

Really cool

I loved this first book. It was really interesting and had me not able to put it down from start to finish. I didnt want the story to end. It had a few steamy parts they were really hot, love that in a book. Cant wait to read the next book in this series.

I haven’t read many angels and demons books. This was an interesting take on the paranormal concept, of the hallowed, of the fallen, and of those who are in between.

Despite the poor editing, there was much to be found in this story. I didn’t like it in the beginning, as it wasn’t solid enough, but as the story moved on, as the mystery unravelled itself and the solution was found, I started to enjoy the story

Are all humans fallen angels aiming to be good

Dana is a great warrior angel a leader who would fight to Dave man from man the portals kept opening kept them busy keeping the horrors at bay then she found where Gideon was and her only fight was to save him. A well written story of redemption of helping because you want to not because you have to the fight between good and evil we all fight each day I recommend this book for the highs and lows it brings it has some backbone there too

Normally, I don't like fictional books about Heaven and Hell. This author takes up an issue of the Fallen Angel. In this series, there are angels that fell that the Father calls the Unhallowed. He has given them a way to redeem themselves. Here we find that Michael offers a way for Gideon to redeem himself. It will forever change him and the angel he fell in love with, but the chance at redemption is worth the cost.

Her writing draws you in and keeps you involved throughout the whole of each story.

You truly feel as though you are living among the characters, fighting their fight, a part of their world.

Great character development, steamy sex scenes and enough of the everyday grind to really be able to sink into the book.

He has just one thing to do to get redemption and that is to close the portal to hell so he can return to heaven. He runs into the one he had not expected to see again. They may need to choose between duty or love? Can they close the doors of hell? See how they will get on

MOST SINS, NO MATTER HOW BIG, CAN BE FORGIVEN

A story that makes one believe that no matter what mistake you make, the Good Lord will find a way to forgive you and let you find your true calling. Gideon and Dina take a trip to Hell and wonder if they will return. What would they sacrifice for a love that should not be. You will too. Enjoy the read, I did!

Gideon and Dina risk everything to shut the portal to Hell including love. Only The Fallen is a dark paranormal story and my first book by this author. This book has strong, well developed characters, an interesting story line full of suspense, danger, action, mystery, unexpected twists, passion and a cliffhanger that left me wanting to read the next book in the series.

Only the Fallen (UnHallowed #1) is the first for Timonique Stephens ofthis series. Its the first book I have read that she has written and it was very good. The characters are strong and whats not to love about angels and redemption. Love triumphs in the end which is all great romances. The struggles make this a great read. Couldn't put it down.

This is the second book in the Unhallowed Series and if you have not started reading this series you really need to it is a great series thus far and I can’t wait for more. I came upon Tmonique by chance and I have loved everything I have by her thus far. Bane and Amaya are working together to get what they both have wanted for a long time and Archangel Micheal has promised this to them if they do his bidding. Great adventure with brilliant twist and turns.

Passion changes everything, especially for the characters Tmonique writes about in her Descendants of Ra, UnHallowed, and Plain Jane series. Flawed characters who reflect the emotional baggage we all carry interests her the most. She writes complicated stories for complicated people.
