One thing in advance: this is not a light and easy read. Not unexpectedly so for those who are familiar with this book's prequel, The Angel of 13th Street, but rather unlike many other books from Eden Winters. With this book, the author shows herself from a more serious, pensive side.

This is very much Noah's story; one could justifiably call it his backstory, since there are many flashbacks to his rentboy years and to his hangups on Billy, his former boyfriend and fellow rentboy.

This book is a continuation of Jeremy and Noahs story.

Without giving away spoilers this story shows both the good and bad. The hope and despair. The wins and the loses.

Chip will leave you both frustrated and sad.

Lark was a wonderful character that you were pulling for from the moment you meet him.

We get to see Doc in a more fleshed out role, and Jeremy is still the hopeful young guy that is full of optimism.

But this is still mostly Noahs story.

Noah is still trying to save everyone although

More insightful review from Feliz here

Reading the last chapters of the book it slowly dawned on me...
This was the m/m rent boy version of the Frank Capra movie "It`s A Wonderful Life" with James Stewart. The characters lining up at the end to ask/show a depressed Noah "What would have happened if you hadn`t been there?"
Too much melodrama, a bleak overall atmosphere and an open question at the end - what happened to Chip?
Third book is on the way and I hope I will get an answer..;-)

4.5 Stars - I am glad I waited until I could read both of these stories back to back, it made it much easier to follow. This book was much more about Noah and his history, but all the characters and some new ones from the prior book added to this story. I must say that I wanted to just smack Chip upside the head and Doc and Lark just about broke my heart. This book did have more angst in it than the previous story, some of it frustrating. While I did love this book as much as the first, I felt ...more

I waited until I was in the mood for this book and I timed it right. I liked the fact that, while this was really Noah's story, there were more secondary characters to add to the tapestry of Fallen Angel: Doc, Lark, Mary, Sumner... Eden's customary great writing and three dimensional characters were a good balance to angst, which I don't usually like. Still, the book warmed my heart and I am looking forward to reading Lark's book.

It was so good to see this pair again. And bless Doc's heart.
In this sequel to The Angel Of 13th Street, we catch up with Noah and Jeremy shortly after the ending of the first book.

Jeremy is trying to help a meth addict off the streets, Noah is struggling with memories and haunted still by whom he couldn't save while he's trying to save another teenager, and Doc is making plans to turn the mission over to Noah, formalize it more, and get more volunteers.

And Jeremy is about to graduate from high school with plans to attend college on a scholarship, which

For those of you who havent read The Angel of 13th Street, go fix that right now. Okay, youre back? Good. Now we can talk, not so much because you need all the background in the first book as because its just that good and this follows on. Fallen Angel stands alone but is that much richer if youve read the first one.

Jeremy and Noah are several months into their relationship, and its unusual in that while Jeremy is of age, hes still in high schoolaging out of the foster system before he graduated

This is a sequel to The Angel of 13th Street, which is one of my favorite M/M reads and my favorite book by Eden Winters. I was eager to see what was going to happen in the aftermath of all the intensity and violence that took place in the first book.

At the beginning we find that Noah and Jeremy are living together and everything is seemingly fine between them, at least on the surface. Doc's cause had broadened in scope and Jeremy was becoming very involved. To me there was loads of realism in

I'm rating this and the book before it in the series (The Angel of 13th Street) as a whole, because that's how I think they should be taken. Finishing the first book, it felt incomplete, but after reading the second I felt like I'd gotten the whole story and it was wonderful. Definitely read these books in order and back to back.

Between Feliz's review and Simsala's review, I really have nothing more to add. They summed it up perfectly, and the ending really did feel like "It's a Wonderful Life".

I guess the one place I differ is that I didn't feel Chip's story was hanging, as Noah's hospital exchange with Sumner made it clear there is still work to be done there. I'm looking forward to the third book, and wondering how it will sell me on Lark and Sam as a couple. I loved Lark in this one and would love to see him happy

4 1/2 stars!

Eden Winters often writes about the underbelly of society, the sordid lives of those we try not to notice and assume are someone elses problem. FALLEN ANGEL is the second book in THE ANGEL OF 13TH STREET series, but it is a well-crafted stand-alone book as well as a continuation of the series.
Im never sure whether Ms Winters stories are character-driven or plot-driven so well say this one is both as the characters are integral to the plot and would not be as fully developed without

Yes it was a book that is about Hope and Possibilities. It is about redemption, forgiveness and recovery. It is about the tremendous strength of character people are capable of. It is about the personal weaknesses we all face. It is about evil and how it preys upon its victims.

I am still recovering from burn-out and this story is too close. The wounds are too fresh and now are seeping again. I'll heal again. I hope to re-join the battle again soon. Until then, good wishes, and my deepest

Follow up to The Angel of 13th Street'. So glad I took a chance on them. 4.5 stars and . Noah has been trying to run from painful memories for 10 years and eventually after a violent attack, he succumbs to a breakdown. Jeremy is left to try and pick up the pieces and 'Doc' realises that his days of pretending that he isn't ill are at an end. Really good sequel, and I'm now working my way through Eden Winters' back catalogue.

N.B. Have to say I originally bought this book and it's prequel from

We were introduced to Noah and Jeremy in The Angel of 13th Street. This is the sequel to that book.

Noah and Jeremy have grown much closer in their relationship, but ghosts of the past still haunt them. Especially Noah. He is haunted by the ghost of his ex-lover Billie and all the young men he couldn't help get off the streets. This fear and angst eventually surfaces and threatens Noah and Jeremy's relationship just when they need each other the most.

I think this is a good sequel to the previous
I have mixed feelings about this sequel. Although I admire the skilful and highly emotional way in which the story has been written, I must admit that I was quite frustrated with Noah... The focus of the plot seemed often too one-dimensional - Noah battling his 'demons' by himself and pushing people who loved him away. Jeremy was indeed very patient and resilient; in the end, I hardly felt as if the two had consolidated or deepened their bond as a couple compared to the wonderful prequel.

It was good to visit with Noah and Jeremy again... and I loved spending time with their "family" both old and a couple of new members! It wasn't an easy road for these two to finally get where they needed to be... they both made some hard choices and helped a few in need along the way... and sadly lost a few also... but they got where they were always meant to be with their pasts behind them and crazy mad in love with each other!
Most of the times I wanted to smack upside the head one character or another. Chip for his stupidity, Noah for his hanging on the past and both Noah and Jeremy for the lack of communication. It was like going one step forward and two steps back. Only Doc and Lark seem to follow the chosen path, the only obstacles to their plans being physical.
This course of plotting might be more realistic, but boy was it frustrating.

This is the sequel to Angel of 13th Street and this time we get to see inside Noah's head. It's not a light read. It felt at times dark and depressing. I love Jeremy with his optomism, Lark with his hope and Doc with his love and understanding. It was truly frustrating at times, but in the end it all came together.
Darn - I wish I had realized this was a second/sequel.

This one brought me to tears quite a few times. I really get pulled in to Ms. Winter's characters, and felt the cause in this story, as well as each character's trials, questions, and weaknesses deeply.

Thank you for such a heartfelt story.

4 Stars!

Fallen Angel is book 2 in The Angel of 13th Street series, and I strongly suggest reading book 1 first, since it refers to the same couple in this book. Unfortunately, I hadnt read the previous book, so even if the author gave some background information, I didnt feel as invested in the characters and their story.

For the last decade, ex-rent boy Noah has been devoted to saving other boys that like he did fell prey of boyfriends that ended up pimping them. However, the stress of trying

The Urban dictionary defines a fallen angel as: A person who has been jaded by life but has not let it destroy their inner beauty of their compassion. They still believe in mankind and will go above and beyond for friends and family. However, romantic love still eludes them as they have created walls in their heart that are difficult to breach. This defines Noah of 'Fallen Angel' by Eden Winters absolutely. In this sequel to 'The Angel of Thirteenth Street' the story picks up where the first ...more

Change can be very hard for some people to accept. Noah, who has been used to operating independently as the muscle and tactical portion of a teen rescue operation, seems to become more and more weighed down as the cause grows and expands with more people and more rules. Additionally, he shoulders the burden of every lost boy as if it were his own personal failure. And, adding to the already big heap of stress is the fact that he cant bring himself to share everything with his lover and partner, ...more
This is a great addition to the first book in this series The Angel of 13th Street and I did love it but I loved the first story more. The writing is still excellent, the characters are still almost perfect and like in the first book there are parts that broke my heart.

I seem to have read a lot of stories lately that at the end have left me feeling like they are incomplete, as if there should be just a little bit more. This one did the same thing. I'm hoping there will be another I'm anxious to

You will know Eden Winters by her distinctive white plumage and exuberant cry of Hey, yall! in a Southern US drawl so thick it renders even the simplest of words unrecognizable. Watch out, she hugs!

Driven by insatiable curiosity, she possibly holds the worlds record for curriculum changes to the point that shes never quite earned a degree but is a force to be reckoned with at Trivial Pursuit.
