I just finished The Darkangel Trilogy and there is one word in my opinion that descibes the book "Different". This book was not what i excepted at all. I'm more into the whole young adult paranormal-romance books, and this is not it. This book has more action than romance. In the first book alone there is absolutly NO romance. The second has a little and the third has some in the end. But if you re one of those people that love the Twilight Saga, Morganville Vampire Series, House of Night Series, Modern Faerie Tale Series, ect.... this book is not for you. Unless you like a seires that doesn't have a absolutly happy ending,unlike the Twilight Saga ect... i don't really recommend it.

This book is about a girl named Aeriel that wanted to get captured by the darkangel because he took her friend as his 13th wive. But once he brings her to his castle, he made her the servant for his 13 wives, known as the wraiths. During this time she helps the wraiths and the duarough, Talb. And when he sends her on a quest to defeat the Darkangel, she must overcome many obsticals, inculding to find the meaning of the rime that Talb made her memorize, to accomplish the quest.

This book has many twists that you won't see coming but overall is a good book if you like this sort of thing. The next two book, The Gathering of Gargoyles and The Pearl of the Soul of the World, is also very good and will keep you on the edge of the seat. So if you are a fan of these types of book then i say "Go for it!" but if you are more into the whole Supernatual-Romance books then this is not for you.

The books below are some of my personal favorites! (But remember, these books are young adult Paranormal-Romance)

    Dark Fairy-Tale

    This book is an enchanting dark fairy-tale. It has a downtrodden but clever/courageous heroine, an evilly enchanted but irresistible prince, a wicked but hidden witch, brave guardian beasts and a strange but beautiful world created by ancients. The plot is solid but fanciful. The writing is good and often lyrical. The pace alternates between moderate and fast. It's the first installment in a dark fairy-tale trilogy. If you are looking for something that deviates from the normal fantasy but still entertains, then perhaps this story is for you. I certainly liked it.

    It was just a normal day for Aeriel, a servant, having to complete her chores. This time she was with her mistress, Eoduin, collecting flowers upon a mountain. <BR/><BR/>Both girls were told numerous times about the dangerous creatures that roam the earth, although neither ever took them seriously. But one story, the one Bomba had so urgently told them, about the Darkangel, the vampyre who takes the souls of innocent, beautiful women, became a reality for the girls. <BR/><BR/>While up high in the mountains, with very little capability to see or hear, the Darkangel swoops down to capture Eoduin. <BR/><BR/>This does not bode well with Eoduin's parents or Aeriel. Wanting to seek revenge, Aeriel goes back up the mountain to confront the Darkangel, only to discover that he captured Eoduin to become his thirteenth bride. Unable to complete her task, the Darkangel then captures Aeriel, not to become his bride but to be his servant. <BR/><BR/>Aeriel soon learns that once the Darkangel captures his fourteenth bride, his powers will be fully developed. <BR/><BR/>And so begins Aeriel's journey to not only save her life, but the lives and souls of the thirteen other girls -- and to prevent the Darkangel from seeking his last bride. <BR/><BR/>From the very beginning, readers will be enticed by the dark and mysterious world created by Pierce, where no one is safe. The author's great use of detail creates vivid images that will haunt the reader and leave them wanting more.
