Death should have been the end, but instead, it’s the start of my revenge... and they won’t see me coming.

Evie survived a trip to hell, literally, to find herself somewhere even more dangerous, with the angels. Angels who do not want to let her leave, not without a paying a price for the life they saved.

Angels. Demons. Protectors and more secrets than one world should

3.5 I like this series!

So, maybe this book wasn't as good as the previous one.
So, maybe this book had a gigantic cliffhanger.
So, maybe some things weren't perfect.

But it's still a fun series, although it might be a good idea to have all the books handy once you start reading it. What if you like it and want to continue but can't? It's an awful feeling

It's the kind of UF series you read because you want a UF but can't find anything amazing out there (you're probably read most of them already).
...ha ha.. totally forgot about this series.

Runes of Mortality was an okay book. I feel like it did suffer the whole second book syndrome that some series tend to deal with. In it, you will still meet Evie. She just woke up from being stabbed, ouch, and is in a while realm. No biggie - right?

The one thing that I did like about this book was getting to know more about her. Not just hers but the guys as well. It was an interesting route to take, a bit boring as well, but enjoyable. This book was

I am enjoying this series more than I thought that I would.

In this book we find out who Evie's dad is and she claims her birth right as princess of the Protectors. This book is typical of most RH's series with the secret pack not to touch Evie, although this pack is a little different because almost all of the guys have admitted that they want Evie with the exception of the one typical asshole of the group.

I can't wait to read about the test and see Evie destroy Erica.

The rise

I really enjoyed thus book it was a bit slower then the last book and more of a setup for things to come, but I enjoyed it all the way through.

The book gives more of an insight into a couple of the characters that did not get as much time in the last book. Though this is still Evie's story she goes not just take centre stage but demands it.

There are plenty of revelations about Evie's past and her destinies. Yes like most things she has more then one.

As much as I enjoyed this book, now t

WHY WHY WHY. I just finished this book on an airplane ride and I can’t download more books. At least I finished this one. I’m writing this review in my notes so I don’t forget the goodness I just read.

Q U I C K read, this one.

Hell yes, it’s still good.
Loving the guys perspectives. This is a first. Team Azi.
All I’m saying is this story just keeps getting better.

Honestly, very surprised to see this author co-wrote the Marked series because that series was a fucking mess.
*horrible flashbacks o
Evie wakes up from her stabbing in a strange realm that is all white. She learns she is half-angel and who her father is - yay! With the help of Azi, she escapes the realm to return to Earth and begin to claim her birthright. Revenge on her sister will just be a bonus. Oh! And as she prepares herself, she might make out with the guys a little.

Yeah, ok. I like Evie and I like the group of guys she has surrounded herself with, and I even want to know how the story will progress in the next book.

This was quite bad. I don’t want to rip it apart. I’m just leaving myself a note so that I’m not tempted to pick up this series/author again.

The plot thickens.

Slow start on this one but I liked how it went between Evie and Azi. Pretty much went how I expected it to go. Really curious about Seth. The guys are coping after believing their princess is dead. I’d say it picks up more towards the end, other than that it’s drawing battle lines and deciding relationships.

Fantastic second book. Evie has always been her own person but I think in this book she is starting to accept that she needs the men and I like seeing that side of her. It's fine being a tough chick but you have to balance it out somehow. Otherwise you are just kind of a *itch. We also get more of the men's POV. YAY for that! ...more

Another fantastic story from G. Bailey!!

This 2nd book gives us all kinds of answers about Evie’s past which gives us a more precise direction on what exactly Evie’s journey end goal. Evie is still an awesome character but her cheeky and snarky attitude was dialed back in this book compared to book 1. Maybe because her defensive walls protecting herself against others is starting to break down thanks to her 4 guys.

I loved learning about Evie’s past and finding out exactly why she is so important

Great continuation of Evie’s story. I am so glad we learned more about her and the guys’ back stories. Trex really needs to get his head out of his ass and tell the truth and they all need to talk to Evie about the relationship idea.

The Action Continues

The second book in the series continues right where the first left off. She discovers the truth of her past and risks everything to claim what is hers. I love the interactions between her and the men who want to belong to her.

Runes of Mortality

This book is a wonderful continuation of Evie’s story. The mix of witches, demons and protectors makes for a very interesting storyline. Can’t wait to start book 3 in the series.

I'm up in the air about reading book 3. The reason - book two ended with changing POV from the FMC to the Antagonist. In my opinion rarely does POV change help the book., I was ok in this book when, for a chapter, it changed to the POV of one of the guys, but it was a short chapter, and it helped the story along just fine.
If book 3 is going to switch POV between the FMC and the Antagonist, I probably won't bother. :(

That was AMAZING!

I don’t even care that I’m still on the edge of my seat and haven’t checked the release date to ease my mind...IT WAS THAT GOOD! Evie is my new “book girl I want to come back as” crush. I’m already looking forward to the reread!

Book #2 of G. Bailey's A Demon's Fall series follows Evie as she awakens in a world full of white after being stabbed by her sister while in hell. To be honest she was surprised that she woke up at all, never one to look a gift horse in the mouth however, she gets on with things. Meanwhile, the protectors are keeping Hali hidden in a safe house while, along with Azi, mourning their loss. When Azi gets news of

So Book 2 leaves off where we book 1, with Evie dying and ending up in this in-between realm in Hell (with some other otherworldly creatures!). I thought the time with these new characters was well done but loved when she got to reunite with her future harem. I liked her integrity and honor with bringing them all back to the real world, after some had been stuck for hundreds of years. In terms of the guys, I totally fell in love with Azi in this one and some of the Protectors too (not Trex haha, ...more

Runes of Mortality picked up right where Runes of Truth left off. After being murdered by the crazy sister she just learned she had, Evie is now trapped in Hell with some angels. Now she has to find out about who she truly is, how she can get home to be with Hali and the guys, and to get her revenge!

This story moved a bit slower to me at first, due to Evie being apart from the guys and them believing she is dead for a while. But, it was an important aspect of the story, allowing Evie to learn ab
Jun 26, 2019 rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
This book begins with a "Prologue" describing something that takes place in the middle of the book, and is unnecessary. The story really begins where the first book abruptly ended, with an unclear timeline of how long has passed - it seems like days to one character and a month to others. There isn't much plot to this book. The story that wasn't resolved in book one continues to be unresolved, with only a little more information given. But there's no tension. Characters have to wait for this or ...more

Happy to report this book didn’t suffer through second book syndrome. Well, maybe it partly had second book syndrome. There wasn’t much that happened plot wise but we learned a lot more about the plans happening around Evie and her new found family so it didn’t feel as if the book dragged.

We literally where the first book left off, discovering that Evie is part angel. From there, we see the wheels of revenge set in motion for Evie. She won’t stand for her newly discovered half-sister, Erica, on

** Cliffhanger-ish Warning! ** I love this book. It's still a fast-paced, fun, action-packed, slow-burn, fantasy reverse harem romance. Some questions have been answered, but more have popped up. I like how things pick up right after the cliffhanger ending of book one, Runes of Truth. (So there's hardly any exposition.) Evie has made her mark on the world of the demons, as well as the Protectors. It's fascinating to see how she has changed since her death/rebirth.

I like Evie even more now. I thi

This second book is definitely a very quick read. Read through it in less than a day. It’s either really well written you just don’t notice it as you keep flipping to the next page or it’s just too short. Either way it’s not a bad thing. I didn’t even realize I was done until I was reading the authors note at the end.

Evie doesn’t take any crap from anyone and she is fiercely loyal to those she cares about, but there are some questionable weaknesses throughout that seems like she sh
