Mindy Lou's Book Review
Apr 30, 2016 rated it it was amazing
ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is a revised review. I just found out that this is not a standalone book. There is actually 4 books in this series. This actually changes my initial review. I'm one of those people that an ending to a story can make or break a book for me. I was pretty disappointed in this ending when I thought it was THE ending.

So, now that I know this story is not over and will continue...this is a definite 5 star book for me. Purgatory's Angle

--I am the Author of this book--

They say that raising your first children prepares you for the last ones. What you learn from raising these older children is how to do it right. What can I say about Purgatory's Angel? What I can say is that I've written 8 books now and I've published 2 of them. When this one hits the bookshelves, it will be my third published novel.

My first novel, Darkest Frost, was my hardest and most frustrating, my rebellious first child that I tried every formula possible t

Very real lucid dream depictions. After reading the first dream I realized the author must be a lucid dreamer, and I couldn't put it down after that. A very good balance of suspense, action, romance and a peek through the veil. The lucid dream aspect drew me in and I wasn't disappointed. This book had many layers of depth for this genre that I didn't expect.

I just finished this book, that had me really excited to read it, because I love the angels theme and I was very curious about how this story would turn out.

Overall, I must say I liked it a lot and that, in most respects, it lived up to my expectations. I loved the base plot and the base idea of dark angels working on Earth without us, regular human, knowing it. I also, in general, liked the whole of the story, the way it played

Purgatory's Angel is such a unique story. It's gritty leading female character, Jaime, touched my heart with the complexity of her path in life. She's a dark angel sent to earth to rid it of the demons that kill and torture their victims. She too had been touched by this evil in her youth and swore to exact revenge, but how can she face an enemy each night while keeping her soul free from the darkness? I felt so sad for her each time she was thrust into a new scenerio, not knowing who or what sh ...more

This is not a genre that I read much in, but I heard some good things about this book and decided to branch out some. I’m so glad I did! I’ve read some other reviews that said the beginning was slow...maybe because I’m not used to this genre, but that wasn’t my experience at all. The writing is short sentences, sometimes dropping subjects, which makes the book fast-paced and action packed from the beginning! I was interrupted several times and didn’t want to put the book down!

I really enjoyed this book. It grabbed my attention and drew me in from the first page. I literally could not put it down. I sympathized with Jaimie and really felt how hard her world was to live in and feared for her every time she went to sleep. I was surprised at some of the plot twists (totally did not see them coming.) Definitely worth the read! I look forward to reading other books by this author.

Purgatory's Angel is the first book in the Dark Angel Series by B. Hughes-Millman
Dark Angels fight demons in their sleep. Piques your interest, sounds original, doesn't it? It did to me when I read the blurb on Library Thing and I was 'awarded' one of the books.
The first few chapters were a bit slow, laying out some of t

Received this book for an honest review from the author.

This is my first book by this author and I am impressed with the writing quality. One of the best line in the book goes something like this, when Rick ask "how can God allowed this" and Jamie replies "God doesn't allow this we welcome this into our lives". This is good vs evil, bad vs good or angel vs devil. Twisted souls and the gate keepers, no matter how you look at this the average person will fight some form of evil either in the wakin

Sadly this book wasn't meant to be for me.
I loved the blurb, that was really what drew me in. The thought that a strong female archangel was battling demons on earth in her sleep to protect the innocent. I mean how cool does that sound?! The second half of the blurb I thought, ok, romance I can do romance... AS long as it doesn't take over the entire st

This my first book from B. Hughes-Millman, and I’m thrilled that I had the chance to read it. Purgatory's Angel is the first book in B. Hughes-Millman's Dark Angel series. The book has a new concept that I have not come across before. The book was so well written that it was hard to put the book down when I needed to. For me there are not may authors who can do a cliffhanger well, most usually just cut a story off a some juicy point that leaves you screaming for the rest without ever resolving a ...more

I was so devastated when i turned the last page of this book and realized that it was finished. I need to know what happens next. This is one of those books that you can't help but talk about even if the other person isn't even listening. The plot is so intricate, perfect and realistic that I had to tell myself over and over that it's just a story.
When i started reading this book, my heart instantly went out to Jaime, her strength and determination is admirable and her past is heartbreaking. 'Pu

A demon-fighting angel who will haunt your dreams (literally), Jamie Connor voluntarily lingers in the mortal world and, night after night, enters the dreams of souls in peril to slay demons. She has the scars, inside and out, to prove it. And with new threats looming on the horizon, she could really use some friends and allies.

Unfortunately, it isn't always easy for a dark angel to distinguish friend from foe, and with two protective new guys in her life, it's imperative that she learns. Is doc

I really enjoyed reading Purgatory’s Angel. I have always been fascinated with Dark and Fallen Angels and couldn’t wait to read this. The story kept me drawn in from the very first page to the very last page and kept me wanting more. I enjoyed the dream sequences the most they drew me right into the story.

I was absolutely riveted from page 1. I'm not a believer in Christian mythology, but I've always loved fallen angel fantasies. The build-up was one of the best I've read in awhile, and gave only enough detail to keep you from scratching your head too much. The detail was stellar and the plot was interesting and unique. Jaime, a dark angel, is among the strongest of her kind, but she struggles with the way she feels about what she does. Then, one night she has a strange dreamwalk that makes no se ...more

Purgatory's Angel, by B. Hughes-Millman is an awesome paranormal romance that fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon and J.R. Ward will really enjoy.

I loved Millian's take on angels and demons. She created some unique ideas in a widely explored genre and that was a nice surprise. No simple angels here. Also, don't be expecting anything you see on TV.

The prose is well rounded. That might seem like an odd comment, but what I mean is that the book is written in a style that doesn't leave the reader wondering wha

A nice read.
I would of perhaps given 5 except for personal preferences. I do not really care for books that go from third person view and back again to first person. Now having got my personal gripe out of the way...
Its a buy book. The story is engrossing and you will like the way it flows in the characters. They are strong and so many things are happening that it is hard to go away from the book at times. The writing is great and the plot line is very interesting.

With compelling characters, interesting subplots and plenty of paranormal action “Purgatory’s Angel” is the kind of book that keeps one up at night!

This is a very intriguing story. The author has a very descriptive way of writing that really immerses you in the story.

I was drawn to the characters and really enjoyed the story. Jaime is so conflicted by her life and lives with such pain and anguish.

I received a copy in return for a honest review.

This is the nicest cover. And such a complex world. I loved all the characters. I feel, like the author has done a great job building the world. I LOVED the angel wings. There's really nothing like it. I would like to see the book made into a movies it's so good. This is one talented author and I look forward to the next book released. I can't wait.

Purgatory's Angel is a must read! From the first chapter to the final chapter it keeps you wanting more. The battle between good and evil in it's finest. B Hughes-Millman keeps you guessing to the end. Her writing ranks right up there with Lauren Kate. Can't wait for the second book and to see how this story unfolds.

This was a great take on an angel story. Jamie's life seems so exhausting. A having a some what, normal daytime life. Then battling all night with no rest, and the physical damage she suffers. Jamie is such a strong person. I really enjoyed this book.
