    I Enjoyed Reading This Book

    I enjoyed this book and I found the mystery in the book interesting. I did find a few errors in the story, but that didn't take away from my enjoyment in reading the book and I wondered if I imagined what I was reading. For instance there was one passage where Sara finished her wine at dinner and in the next paragraph, she was swirling her wine around in the glass to take a drink, no big deal to the storyline. In Fallen, we have two murders that are just alike but take place years apart. One in 1849 and one in current day. Gabriel is a fallen Angel and it was in 1849 that his mistress Anne, was murdered and all of the evidence pointed to him. However, he was found not guilty. Current day, Sara Michaels, comes to work with Gabriel, he is writing a true crime novel, her Mother, Jessie Michaels, was murdered the same way as Anne. Gabriel and Sara hope to solve the murders but share a mutual attraction-(Gabriel being a fallen Angel can't allow himself to touch Sara or fall in love with her, for her own sake) There are other fallen Angels in this book, but all of these fallen Angels are now known as Demons, can Gabriel and Sara solve the murders before it is to late? A good mystery and urban fantasy, and paranormal romance.

    Darkly evocative

    FALLEN, the second book in Erin McCarthy¿s Seven Deadly Sins series, shouldn¿t be mistaken as a continuation of the introductory book, MY IMMORTAL. This book stands alone and is written around an entirely different sin (gluttony), in the form of addiction.******Angel Gabriel St. John is a watcher, whose purpose on Earth is to protect humans in the dark, sinful city of New Orleans. When despair and pain become too much to bear, he turns to the mind-numbing pleasures of absinthe and opium. One morning after an evening of excesses of the mind and body, Gabriel awakes to find his mistress, Anne Donovan, murdered in her bed. Gabriel has no recollection of the night and soon finds himself transformed into a fallen one, doomed to the immortal life of a demon.******* The book moves forward in time to present day, with Gabriel sober and working on a book about Anne Donovan. He's determined to find out what happened to her. He joins forces with Sara Michaels, whose mother Jessie was killed in an identical manner to Anne. After her mother¿s violent murder, Sara turned to pain medication to mask her grief, so she too is familiar with addiction. Sara finds herself strongly attracted to Gabriel and he¿s equally attracted, but refuses to act on the undeniable passion between them, leaving Sara to feel the ache of rejection. Gabriel has his own reasons for denying them both pleasure he knows that Sara will endure a lifetime of deep despair should they give in to their desires.***** When it becomes apparent that someone intends to harm Sara, Gabriel realizes that he will do anything to keep her safe, even at the risk of losing his only chance at redemption. What Gabriel doesn't know is that Sara is keeping a secret of her own.***** As one would expect of any book from Erin McCarthy¿s vivid imagination, FALLEN has an abundance of dark intrigue and intense sensuality. The dialogue between Gabriel and Sara draws readers into each and every scene and her descriptions allow the mind¿s eye to see every detail with clarity. Flashes from past to present together with old newspaper articles serve to give the story depth and set the foundation for Gabriel and Sara's passionate story.****** I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy a deeply emotional romance. Be sure to keep an eye out for the next book in this series, THE TAKING, with the sin of choice being greed - guaranteed to be another winner!

    murder mystery investigative fantasy

    In 1849 New Orleans Anne Donovan loves John Thiroux and would do anything for him even die. John is actually the fallen angel Gabriel St. John sent to earth to help humans, but failed to cope with mortal suffering and turned to absinthe to drown his woes. When Anne violently dies, Gabriel is unsure whether he killed her as he was intoxicated at the time. He pledged to his heavenly boss to remain sober even as he is acquitted by a jury of his not peers of the homicide. --- In present day New Orleans, true-crime author Gabriel is stunned by the parallels between the murder of Jessie Michaels and that of his Annie. Once again the accused Dr. Rafe Marino in this case is exonerated after a trial. Jesse¿s daughter Sara Michaels has left Florida to uncover the truth about her mother¿s murder Gabriel plans to write a book on the subject. These two wounded souls collaborate seeking peace from closure, but neither knows how connected the mid nineteenth century murder and the recent one are to one another. --- This is an engaging murder mystery investigative fantasy starring two angst laden individuals seeking solace by bringing rest to their beloved dead. The story line is fast-paced as the duo follow clues in trying to solve two homicides. Although the climax seems to have fallen from nowhere, fans will enjoy Erin McCarthy¿s fine tale. --- Harriet Klausner
