Who knew that Nephilims and Fallen Angels were real?

Life as I knew it was unbelievably normal. Until it wasn’t. I had been accepted to the college of my dreams— UCLA. And I’d even met the perfect boy. Not that I was the boy-crazy type... that was my sister. Something about him was different, the attraction was undeniable.

All it too

Fortis was an amazing story that I couldn't stop reading once I got started until I devoured each & every page. There's a war beginning between the Nephilim & the Fallen Angels, with both sides wanting a powerful savior to choose them. A prophecy is out there, and it all surrounds a normal 18 year old girl named Gabby. Gabby is getting ready to go off to college at UCLA, when she meets the drop dead gorgeous, Alec. They seemingly have chemistry (and they do), but little does Gabby know, Alec is ...more

This book starts out with the intriguing idea of Nephilim and Fallen Angels in Los Angeles! No more dorms and classes for our first person character, Gab, or Gabrielle. She’s about to be caught up with a mysterious boy and change. Her sister, Celeste has premonitions of omens, shifts in history. She goes into a trance and speaks. “War has begun!” The scene shifts to Gabrielle and Lilly in a mall. The back of Gabrielle’s neck is bothering her, a seemingly small thing. She accidentally bumps into ...more

I do love books about angels, nephilim and all these things and I was looking forward to read Fortis.
Overall, I did enjoy the book very much. It has all it takes: action, romance, some steamy scenes, and good characters. Yes, it does play a bit like the "standard" girl falls for boy who took her away from family stuff but in the end it turns out nicely and interesting.
Sometimes though I had the feeling that it was a bit rushed - especially when it came to Gabby and Alec. This felt a bit "too qui

What an interesting concept in the Nephilim Romance world in which it seems so much has been done for, doesn't matter, I am still a stickler for it and Fortis was a super interesting start to the series!

Gabby is a typical 18 year old that loves her sister more than anything in the world, though she is her polar opposite. This chick seems SO much older than 18 as being the more responsible one of the duo. She definitely was not ready to meet the super hot and magnetic Alec, but once she did it c

“This beginning was all! I’ve always love stories about angels, Nephilims, fallen angels pretty much everything related honestly and this book was absolutely perfect! Such an incredible introduction to the series. The characters were splendid but I wished we would get to known them better but still they were brilliant. The background and the story were fascinating and intense, page after page the story kept getting better and better.

Gabby might seem like the typical 18 year old girl but she’s n

This was such a great start to a series! The characters were brilliant, and the story and background were captivating. I could hardly put the book down! I'm eager to see how the war between the Nephilim and the Fallen progresses and who all is involved. Will there be switchings between the different sides? Should be interesting! I can't wait for the next book so I can read more and see what happens with Gabby, Alec, Daemon, and Lilly.  ...more

An enjoyable story. At times I felt there was too much description, slowing down the story. The rest of the time, it was a wonderful journey. I did not want to stop reading till the end, and now I need to wait for the next book. Gabby and Alec were "electric" together and the scenes between them were hot. I felt they made a good team. Again, I enjoyed this story and recommend it.

I received a copy of this story through Enticing Journey Book Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

The author sends us on a magical adventure in modern times with prophecies dating back to Adam and Eve.

The war has begun between the Nephilims and the Fallen Angels. Both wanting the powerful Savior on their side. Light vs dark.

With Alec as Gabrielle's protector, Celeste's premonition has come true in the prophecy. Which side will Gabrielle chose since her sister has a dark aura?

And is Daemon the missing link?

I can't wait to read the next installment of this

I liked entering this captivating literary world between the nephilim and fallen and am excited to see where it leads in future books. I liked the characters I found them interesting and intriguing and can’t wait to see further character development. The book was a little different for this genre and I’m extremely glad that I chose to ARC this book.

Nice start to The series. I enjoyed the characters. I am curious to see how the war between the Nephilim and the Fallen progresses. I admit this is not my preferred genre but it did hold my attention. Kudos to this new to me author.

Jacqueline Chappell
This was an original take on the creation myth is and the role of angels, nephilim and humanity. The characters are interesting and the world building is good. I hope to see much more of that in the second book as well as deeper character development. The love story is angsts and ends on a cliffhanger. Recommend.

~ ARC received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review ~

A very interesting approach on Nephilim and Fallen Angels, an enjoyable read.
Gabby though, even if is a likable charachter, seemed to accept too easy some things and not question them at all. Some parts were too fast and needed more background explanation.

I read less than 50% and had to stop. Lots of grammar mistakes and changes between pretences from past to present. Some of which are even in the same sentence!
When reading this book it is obvious to me that the author is trying to sound more intelligent and older with their words. Melancholy is used a lot and it’s not something an eighteen year old would constantly use to describe their mood. Sometimes there is lots of detail and others it is glazed over with very little.
