without a fight both with the demons and humans alike I a fight both with the demons and humans alike I liked that about her Then her wry sense of humor with Zacharel their banter was hilarious And I like that she doesn t fall head over heels in love with him and let s him treat her like she s beneath him despite that she s human I liked the slow building of their relationship it seemed much realistic that they took things slow as it was Zacharel s first time EVER with a woman I wouldn t o as far as saying the sex scenes were awesome and they were so steamy no rather they were endearing and sweet Not what I was use to from Gena Showalter but definitely not disappointing eitherAll love aside though Zacharel struggles to earn the respect of his men They re all angels who ve seen far than any other has And they ve been stripped of their who ve seen far than any other has And they ve been stripped of their their compassion their ability to feel anything but the need for destruction and vengeance I really loved Thane Bjorn Xerxes Koldo and Axel though we only see very little of him I would have liked to see of the army and of their reluctance to heed orders I mean they re suppose to be the baddest of the bad right On top of leading an army Zacharel must deal with demons who are bent on capturing Anabelle for the Demon High Lord Unforgiveness But I couldn t help feel disappointed that the reason why he wanted her was so obvious Still I liked the end result And the I read the I wanted to know Despite the Angel s new mission to keep from falling and the battles with demons they must face there is still the impending war we saw brewing in the Lords of the Underworld series And I really liked that we ot to see the Lords interact with Zacharel again brief as it was I can t wait to read Koldo s book which is Beauty Awakened and read about the angels This series is looking very promising and I d recommend to any LOTU fan and lover of angel paranormal romances D And now for my Fangirl review Well like a play by play of my reaction to some of the things that happened Pview spoilerI d Operation (Gamers Universe give this book 5 stars because it was so amazing and I love Zacharel to death I don t care how cold and heartless he s been in the LOTU books he s so beautiful how the hell can you resist x Reactions throughout the bookChapter Two Zacharel and Thane s interaction Sir your Great and Mighty Highness Are You Listening to MeThe masculine voice drew Zacharel from the past and the only bright light in an otherwise dark life jerking him straight into the present Helance at Thane the self appointed second in command of his angelic army He cleared his throatI m listening yes NowMy humblest apologies if I bored you before was Thane s flippant replyI m eager to fight Majesty We all areI ve to. From the New York Times bestselling author who brought you the Lords of the Underworld comes a dark seductive new series featuring angels poised on the brink of destruction Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens Zacharel has been deemed nearly too dangerous too. Tory was sweet funny and sometimes tragic but still amazing book The characters were just so intriguing and i can t wait to read about them The world building is uite interesting and i liked Hierarchy and i really loved Army of Disgrace This is a story of Angels and Demons or actually Sent Ones and Demons There is a certain hierarchy The Most High ruled the heavens Merciful One the Anointed One and the Mighty One are the tree ruling members Operation (Gamers Universe going by the name of The Most High They had appointed several underlings and one of them is Deity Germanus Germanus is a lesser king who leads the Elite Seven Zacharel Lysander HOW has this bookotten so many 4 and 5 star reviews The characters were flat and underdeveloped the dialogue didn t flow the sex scenes were lukewarm at best the overuse of ellipses throughout the book bugged the crap out of me and the and ohs plaguing the book all 16 of them were highly annoying Like this A long white robe draped him somehow displaying his incredible strength and oh oh oh but he had brought the chill of the Arctic with him All those ohs are unnecessary and uite frankly jarred me out the flow of reading Now am I being a little nitpicky Probably But I can overlook stuff like this if the writing is solid and unfortunately Ms Showalter s writing just isn tAll that stuff aside the WORST part of this book was the purple prose most of which didn t even make a damn lick of sense An actual uote from the bookHer tongue rolled against his bringing with it the tastes of summer berries dipped in cream newly blooming roses and sultry midnightsSeriously Showalter s comparing the taste of Annabelle s tongue to sultry midnights SERIOUSLY That s AWFUL writing right there not to mention it doesn t make any freaking senseHow about this oneA decadent fire consumed her in seconds burning her upA fire cannot be decadent This is absurd and makes me wonder if Ms Showalter even knows the meaning of the wordI was not impressed with the first book in the LOTU series but I was willing to Highland Fling (Highland Dream, give the author another try I should ve stuck with myut and avoided this one like I will do from now on with ALL of Gena Showalter s books Loved this book Loved this couple Just LOVED Maybe the worst book I have read this year I m no literary expert I read fluff smut smuff I read romance scifi fantasy urban fantasy and I ll be the first to admit my tastes aren t very Pamiętnik antybohatera glamorous I m not that hard to please So when I pick up a book like this and it is so resoundingly awful I feel it is my duty to let everyone know I wanted to put this book down when I was 70% of the way in which is very very rare for me I ended up finishing it just so I could write this scathing reviewIneneral this author tries to be Scottish Witches gritty dirty and bad she was trying to write this story about the ugly side of heaven or soemthing in that vein She s too cutesy and fluffy and it didn t work It was like she was trying to be JR Ward or Ilona Andrews but just paled in comparisonFirst the circumstances thatot Annabelle into that institute for the criminally insane were just dumb On the day she turned 18 this Doc Platoon Medic girl supposedly killed her parents with a knife and chopped their bodies up in daylight then she called 911 and sat over her brother until they came Theyot her because she had a knife in her hand that she had rabbed to protect herself after her parents were murdered First of all the knife would have had no blood on the blade and even
If It Were Cleaned A it were cleaned a lab would have been able to tell you that Even though she had just turned 18 any ood lawyer would have had her tried as a minor Also when you re in jail or in Annabell s case an institute for the criminally insane you do not have your hands cuffed behind your back on a regular basis unless you cuffed behind your back on a regular basis unless you being transported somewhere That sort of treatment is considered abusive because it can do permanent damage to your ligaments In a criminally insane institution you would have been cuffed in front with leather straps and your hands would have been linked by a chain to your cuffed ankles They also tend to have cameras everywhere and I doubt that there would be so much abuse The Lilypad List going on between the administrators and the patientsAlso if you were randomly attached by demons no one else could see don t you think people would wonder about the random cuts and scrapes youot seemingly out of mid airEconomics and punishment in the Angel world also made no sense Why the hell would an angel have to pay to live in a cloud or to live anywhere And seriously the author could not have come up with something less simple for them to live inside of instead of a cloud Why are bad angels punished with violence That also made no sense I think we all learned over the past few thousand years that flogging doesn t really solve anything especially for fast healing angels that have a very high pain toleranceI also don t believe for a second that if an angel is anything like a human how one like Zacherel could have one through thousands of years of his life without once having had sex or at least a friggin hard on He was an adolescent once one with mary sue like abilities and he had a writhing mass of humans and otherworldly beings at his beck and call Yeah noAlso I did not once understand how he could have been attracted to Annabelle Annabelle was a bitchy angsty whiny adolescent child who was supposedly 22 years old Apparently Zach s essentia latched onto her and he didn t have a choice Annabelle was such an awful person with no attractive or redeemable ualities She was
incredibly dumb anytime told her he was leaving a room she would et all angsty and wonder if that was him dumping her Ahhh my Horgonyhely goodness I wanted torab some bouncy balls and tape them to her anatomy because I knew she didn t have the ability to Silver Matilda grow a pairShe would have been the most angsty and emo person to have ever lived if it was not for Zacharel and his ing over his dead brother Did it annoy anyone else that he had this black spotrowing on his chest but didn t really care At least he stood up for himself at times and sort of tried to shake the dumb out of AnnabelleI also know I don t need to read any of the other books by this author because she introduced her other characters to the reader and I hated them all So that s a reliefOkay there were other things about this book that I didn t like but I think I am done with this review I am Sevgi Öyküleri 2 going too read some paranormal romance that is actually ood now by. Ller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane Demons track her every move and their king will stop at nothing to have her Zacharel is her only hope for survival but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation or her ultimate damnatio.
Also Incredibly Dumb Anytime
