Judgment: Kian (The Judgment Duet, part 1) is a great story. This romance is gritty, bittersweet, and one heck of a cliffhanger at the end.

First Thought When Finished: Judgment: Kian (The Judgment Duet, part 1) by Lora Ann is now my favorite written by her. Would have never guessed that going in but WOW what a story!

Quick Thoughts: Loved the characters in this book! One of the funniest lines I read was a thought by Altros “Oh, what a sight to behold. He had a sudden craving for popcorn as he sa

Kian has intervened and helped humans. He gets his wings cut off and is thrown out of the heavenly realm. After landing naked on the snowy mountain side. Aftron throws him her coat to cover his junk. Kian has a purpose to protect a child named Cole McNeil, who can see demons and angels . Very few people have this gift and are precious to the war on evil. Now if we could get Kian to focus on the task at hand. Because he's really crushing on Aftron

This story pulled me in from the beginning. I was so captivated by the story and the characters. This author has been a favorite of mine for awhile and I have not been disappointed. Kian and Afton are tortured by their past. This story is intense, dark and has a cliffhanger ending that will leave you wanting more! I can’t wait for the next book to see where this author takes it. I highly recommend this book!

I have to start by saying Paranormal is usually not my thing. Lora Ann has changed that! Kian and Afton lured me in and never let me go. I totally fell in love with their story and the way Lora brings everything to life. I started this book in the morning and devoured it in one sitting. Thank you Lora Ann for another incredible book! My wait begins for book 2, bring it on

Gritty, passionate, raw and I loved every word. Their story will pull you in and hold you captive till the end, leaving you wanting more.
Author Lora Ann is on a roll!

Seems like we've got another great series brewing, judging by this first book to A Brothers of War Series. Plenty of action, romance and faith in what's right and her characters have such depth and strong wills. I'm hooked! Great paranormal romance thriller if that's your cup of tea you won't be disappointed.

Mesmerising from beginning to end

I love Lora Ann's work, but his one was totally unexpected. I went into this story blind, I didn't want any preconceived ideas of what the story was about. From the very first page, Lora Ann blew me away ... she had me totally mesmerised until the final word was read.

This is the story of Kian, an angel who has had his wings clipped and is sent to Earth to live a single lifetime as a human. He must also fulfil a mission, find the child with the rare gift and prote

Lora Ann pulls you into the story from the first page. I have read Lora Ann's books and I'm a massive fan. With this new series, I promise you that you will not be disappointed. This book ends with a cliffhanger and I can't wait for book 2. If paranormal stories are your thing, then this is a must read.

Kian, an Angel who has had his wings ripped from him is sent to earth with a mission to find and protest a precious child.
He is sent naked, in all his glory to live life as a human, Afton happens to be in the right place at the right time and lends him her coat to cover his modesty.
The chemistry between Kian and Afton is off the charts right from the off.
Lora Ann brought in characters from her Beautiful Ashes Series, which she blended so well it just feels like an extention, like family.

Judgment: Kian is the first part in The Judgment Duet. This is Kian and Afton’s story. Kian is an angel that has had his wings stripped and he has been banished to Earth to live as a man. Afton is the first to see him in all his glory and throws her coat over him to cover his naked self and then brings him to her cabin. Kian has a job to protect a little boy, Cole McNeil while he is on Earth.

There are a lot of characters in Judgment: Kian and I would think this book would benefit from a glossar

This Book was really intense. This is my first read by this author and the more I got into this book, the more I kept turning the pages. I was a bit confused at first but I kept reading, and then more characters were introduced and I was finally getting the story. Kian and Afton are both tortured souls, one angelic, and one not. There are many different beings in this story and they all have a part to play in this story. It's amazing how Ms. Ann comes up with the next twist in the story, and the ...more

Five star thrilling romance is nothing new for Lora Ann. However, when you add the supernatural in - WOW! These characters really jump right off the page!

Kian, Angel turned Human, is cast down to Earth to protect a child who will will be powerful in his own right against the mechanisms of evil. Here he meets Afton and soon learns there is more to her mysterious background.

In a race against time, Kian and Afton set off to find the child. Kian calls upon both his Earthly and Heavenly warrior broth

Lora Ann is one of those authors who can constantly make me feel the emotions within her stories. Kian is a paranormal romance and dark urban fantasy that will make you a believer in the supernatural. The chemistry between the main characters Kian and Afton is electric. I love how Kian speaks what he feels and how he communicates his feelings to Afton. (Every man should take a lesson from this book). We also see the return of some beloved characters from the Beautiful Ashes series, which feels l ...more

This is the type of paranormal story I crave
Complicated, Intense - Packed with detailed plotlines and intricate characters that drag the reader to the edge of the abyss, leaving them breathless and scrambling to find a perch only to reel them back into a false sense of solid ground and start all over again
The author takes her time setting up the tone and introducing the characters - which I truly appreciate

This is my first book by Lora Ann and I must say that I was completely blown away. I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! I will certainly be reading others. This book will grab you from the very first page and have your begging for more when you get the last page. The characters are all well developed and the story keeps you on the edge of your seat. Love, intrigue, betrayal, lies, and many other twists pull you in and won't let go. There were so many times that I just wanted to wrap my arms around Kian and Afto ...more

“You are hereby sentenced to one lifetime on Earth as a human.” The angel Kian is cast out of heaven with orders to protect a child on earth. Afton finds a man, naked in the snow, and covers him with her coat. Together they will seek the child.

There is so much going on in this book that it was very hard to put down. The story is fresh and new and kept me enthralled. Very intense and steamy, with a cliffhanger.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

He's fallen, with a mission. She's broken and in need of healing. The age old war between good and evil makes his mission almost impossible. She is chosen for him, to help him in his task. There's magnetic chemistry pulling them together. Hang on, this rollercoaster of action, passion, and thrills is a bumpy one.

This is the first book I have read by this author and I loved this story. I definitely plan to read more of her books.

I enjoy reading paranormal romance and this one really hooked me at the start. The characters range from those who are above reproach to the evilest beings you can imagine. Throw in an angel stripped of his wings who meets a woman with a past and the story just gets better and better. I can't wait to see to read the next book in this series.

Lora Ann has given us a wonderful story of angel, humans, and demons that kept me mesmerized from the first page to the last. The storyline is flawlessly written and interesting. The main characters, Kian and Afton, are well thought out and likable. The supporting characters are an interesting mix of villains and good guys, yet sometimes they are both. The chemistry between Kian, our resident angel, and Afton, the human is electric and beautiful to enjoy. The instantaneous bond between the two a ...more

This is the first book by Lora Ann I've read so I had no preconceived idea as to what to expect of her as an author, although, the teaser to the book had me intrigued from the beginning.
Her world building is without a doubt mesmerizing. Her characters are beautifully flawed making them either easy to love or easy to love to hate but either way, you won't meet them and not have a reaction.
Whether you believe in the concept of angels or not, the storyline and plot pulled me in from the beginning,
