Book Review: Angel Betrayed ( book 2 Fallen series) Cynthia Eden
Out everywhere June 26th 2012
Sammael–call him Sam–was an angel once. An Angel of Death. But the dispassionate, watch-from-above thing just wasn’t working for him when it meant watching evil torture innocent souls day in and day out. It might have cost him his wings, but these days he gets to apply the direct method on the bad guys. Problem is, what’s making his life difficult is a bad girl…
Seline O’Shaw needs protection, and with the hounds of hell on her tail, she’s not going to quibble too hard about where she gets it. Sam’s virtue is questionable, but he’s smoking hot, massively powerful, and owes her a favor. So what if she’s getting a little case of angel lust? There are some damn deadly sins after her hide…
I think this might be my first Cynthia Eden book. I saw this on netgalley and it called to me. What can i say it did. Been a while since i read a good paranormal and the cover was pretty easy on the eyes and the blurb reeled me right in. Sammael looks like a really bad dark evil guy at first. I thought omg how is this going to work out. I don't like this guy already. Then Seline comes on the scene and she's hurt and lost but determined. Quite misguided by the Rogziel the punishment angel who decided to step out on his own and punish all the Fallen. He's been the one to guide Seline since she was a baby and her parents supposedly died at the hands of each other. Seline is a halfbreed. Half Angel, half demon succubus. She's been told more than once she's a abomination. She believes it. Then Sam gets a hold of her. He's ancient compared to her 30 years. He knows after getting to know Seline that she's been led astray and used for what she can do. Trust between the two does not come easy but when it finally does it's a thing of beauty. You can see as the story moves on that Sam isn't all as evil as he first appears and that Seline is way more than she thinks she is. I loved this book. It took me forever to finish because of person problems in my life in the past week but if i could have had the time i would've sat and read this in one sitting. I was so lost at first because quite frankly i couldn't figure out where the author was going. Not in a bad way but a good way. It was really unpredictable. I kept waiting for Sam and his brother AZ to make up and they only ended up in limbo there really with a truce which makes me wonder all the more what's coming in the next book. Kept me guessing til the end how it was going to all come out. Love that!! Once Sam and Seline commit nothing will stop them. 5 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick stars for Angel Betrayed by Cynthia Eden.
