Start your review of Court of Command (Age of Angels, #1)

Loved the cover- but the book was kinda of meh for me.


I will say I liked the concept.
Angels have descended upon our realm in holy terror-snatching up humans from the streets-killing them or dropping them from great heights just to watch them fall to the pavement with glee. However, no one really knows why. Is this the end times?

This is where we meet Julia. A human hiding and living in a dystopian LA- who is out on the hunt for food with her father to help feed their family. Everything is goi

Good, not great! Would of like more and better chemistry between this couple...

They crashed from the sky. An army of beautiful, mighty, bloody perfections. They wrecked the world until he came. Their Commander. And he has a war plan for us all.

Julia - the mortal

Commander - the archangel

When I discover she’s a pawn, I discover something else about her. She may be mortal, but she’s not weak. And I’ll fight to my last shred of power to save her before her sanity—and her life—are torn from me.

What a fantastic twist to the angel and human mating bond. Milana Jacks hits it out of the ballpark with this phenomenal start to a new and captivating series. In this first installment we meet Julia, a mortal young woman in an apocalyptic version of our present day world where fallen angels are ruthless beings incessantly warring against the world. One of these heavenly delightful and holy hotness being is Michael the archangel. In his quest to win the war against his fallen brother Lucifer he ...more

Alien adventure that will leave you totally captivated
This was a wonderful read; Julia is human and she had been there the day that the Aliens had flown down from the sky and had landed on earth and had started a change that would leave a permanent mark for all time.
Julia was a human mortal and after she had been discovered by the commander as she had been going through the books searching for food to eat, she tried to kill the angel and wakes up to find that she has been transported to a differ

The writing and editing of the ARC version of the manuscript was clean, with few if any typos that I caught. The world building was competent, with the Court of Command coming to vivid life. The characterization was okay, with the heroine and hero not being especially vivid in my mind. The development of the romantic relationship was natural and organic, with a bit of the Fated Mates element. The plot and pacing were tight and exciting, meaning I read the novel in one sitting. There was low angs ...more

In a world devastated by Angels, Julia is faced with a new reality in which she seems to be one of the few who still remembers the World as it was before. In true Milana Jacks fashion, the plot spreads through the series, and I cannot wait for the next installment. What a beautifully constructed world! The Commander exudes power and ruthlessness. I’m still in awe at how powerful, how hard those emotions are. The scenes are vividly constructed in this dystopia romance. Bring more of those Angels, ...more

Loved this, the plot well thought out and compellingly written.

If you like stories of angels this is one for you. The world ends and is remade but mortals have no memory of before the world ends. Those that do remember are killed because the memory opens their mind to Lucifer.

Archangel Michael and Gabriel feature and not as you would imagine.

For an enlightened being Michael learns so much from our mortal heroine.

This is book 1 and looking forward to reading the sequel.

Wow, I spent the first few chapters trying to piece together what was going on, and I loved it. The storyline was so good, and sucked me right in. Julia was in LA one moment trying to evade the cruel Angels that had taken over, then an Angel stabbed his sword into the ground, and boom, somewhere else entirely. Gotta love a little mystery and suspense. I was all like, wait...what the... Loved it. Michael aka Commandhole (🤣🤣🤣) is the Archangel Michael, one and the same. And let me tell you, he is ...more

I... seem to be in the minority in not particularly liking this book. It kinda felt like a bargain bin version of Susan Ee's Penryn and the End of Days trilogy.

The premise and overall setting had promise, but the relationship (if you can even call it that) between Julia and Michael was troubling. I get that it's supposed to be the "fated lovers/insta-lust" trope, but Julia was given absolutely no choice or say in pretty much anything. AND IT HARDLY BOTHERED HER AT ALL. She was far too willing t

Really interesting and different, not so easily accessible and understandable, but still really great: the idea, the plot the characters - really wonderful and so refreshingly different!!!!

THIS probably deserves 5 stars. I mean it most definitely would get a 5 star rating from any other person I think.

OK! So I have loved loved loved everything Jacks. Honest. Love her. I have not picked up this series because it is an angel book. Not only was it an angel book but like an ANGEL book with a big G.

I receieved a free copy of this book via BookSprout for my honest review.

This is a new take on the angel v demon, and mortal with an angel love interest genre. There are many reasons why this isn't just a rehash of all those other tales, and here are just a few.

This story starts with Julia, a regular young woman who's trying to keep herself and her family alive, in a world where angels now roam and destroy everything and everyone in their path.

Next we meet Michael, the Commander of those angels,

Took me a little bit to figure out what was going on the first couple of chapters, but everything becomes clearer as the story evolves.
Milana can write no wrong in my world. This is just another out of the gate fantastic start to a new series, and I loved it! Angels being my new second love after Hordesmen.

The world has changed and not in a good way depending on your point of view.
Angels have descended to Earth!

I loved this authors other series and was excited to see this new one by her. Overall I really enjoyed this book and I’m very much looking forward to more.

This new book different from her previous work, but worked for me. The world and character building, the storyline and the writing all made for a great read and book.

I did have some expectations when reading, based on past books, that seemed to not be in this book. But I’m not sure I’d call them “missing” and I’m looking forward to more by

In a world gone crazy, where mortals no longer remember the “before” time, angels appear to be the biggest enemy, killing people for an unclear reason. When Julia DeLuca is hunting for food and encounters the ruthless Commander, the Archangel Michael, he doesn’t kill her but transports her to another Medieval type of world. Apparently he saw something different in her that made him curious enough to keep her.

Actually Julia seems to be one of a very few who still remembers the World as it was be

Court of Command wasn't what I had expected. After the Omegaverse aliens, a post-apocalyptic angelic world? Nope. Did it work for me? A little. I wasn't all in, I wanted to be, but I wasn't.

Julia is an anomaly and not in a good way. She remembers everything of before. Those marked by Lucifer have these memories--technically dispatching Julia to hell is the go-to, but her soul has touched another's, and he's not ready to let her go yet. Archangel Michael doesn't want Lucifer to win his mate.

3 to 3.5 stars

The story is a mess. I almost DNF, but I finally got through. Milana Jacks is an auto buy for me because I love every books from The Alpha and Alpha Hordes series. The blind hordesman ends in high note.

I understand the groundwork of Jack's angel-kinda-apocalypse, but many parts seem unreasonable and not making sense. The weakest link is the chemistry between Michael and Julia. I am sad that there is none. The sex scene is neither hot nor seductive. In fact I don't even know when th

Love when you read a story that from the very beginning makes you lose yourself in it. This author always does that to me she just makes me fall in love with all hers characters. Michael was one hell of an angel he definitely knows how to get his lady. Love every moment of the story and I'm so looking forward to see who will be next to fall from grace. ...more

love the commandhole

This author continues to pull me in with yet another series. January is so far away for the next book. You really do want to hate the commandhole and hope Julia stabs him with something. What is Lucifer up to? She writes an intriguing plot that extends into multiple books thus making me want more!

First, it's cruel to make us wait until january. So, this book was great. Just loved Michael. Julia wasn't bad either..actually, I liked Julie a lot. Milana creates men that are perfectly in character. Her men don't think like humans (the non human ones that is) i mean, "What a great runner Julia made." Such a perfectly random thought, which given the circumstance was relevant, but it a thought one would usually have at that particular moment. Brilliant. Please give us Sunder as a thanksgiv

Still good just not as sexy

Love all of milana’s work of course! But I got quite used to her hot and steamy sex scenes and relationship development. I felt like both were a little lacking in this one. Still a good read but not my usual read through can’t put it down like I’ve come to expect from Milana.

This was such an interesting read. Weaving angels with apocalyptic tales. Arch angel Michael is not what I expected. Witty, sometimes brutal and with touches of sweet.
It was a quick read and I cannot wait for book 2.

This is a voluntary Advanced Reader Copy review of ‘Court of Command’. If you were expecting this new series to start off like any of her other series, buckle up mere mortal, you are in for a most creatively awesome, totally new adventure. This story had a lot of set-up, as it is the first book in a new series, but WoW! The way the setting is described, the beauty and the dark, the known with a WTF just happened, repeatedly.

Well this was a different take on the ongoing battle between Heaven and Hell. I had to go back to the beginning when it was revealed what was going on. I didn’t understand the from Before killing humanity when supposed to be saving. I’m guessing there is more going on behind the scenes. But it was a good book and I liked it.

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

the female mc is strong,badass,and down right hilarious. She definitely doesn't like being told what to do haha. Michael is smoking and their interactions are always the best. I definitely would recommend this book 10/5. The world building is on point, everything is explained perfectly and its all wrapped up neatly with a pretty bow on top. Can't wait for the next one in the series. ...more

This just wasn’t what I thought

I hate Michael. He just isn’t doing it for me. He seems like the men that doesn’t take no for an answer or recognize that though Julia is attracted to him her resistance means she isn’t ready for him.
