    Steamy, Action-Packed Series Starter...

    Revelation is a revelation in my view of angels and the idea of religion inciting action. Erica Hayes has created some super sexy angels that are charged with keeping humanity safe as evil tries to unlock the seals leading to the apocalypse. While I found myself drawn to one sexy angel after the next, I just wish I understood their background better. That part of the story was very confusing to me. For being such omnipotent beings they seemed very down to earth with foibles and issues like the rest of humanity. They're paying for their sins by being mostly expelled from Heaven so there's a sense of loss surrounding them that added more layers of humanity to them.

    Luniel has had terrible luck with love and it's damned him time and again. Upon meeting the fiery Morgan Sterling he again fights an attraction that could get both of them killed. With one life or death encounter after another they both eventually give into temptation in a super steamy encounter that is sensually sinful with nothing angelic about it. His interactions with her until then mostly involve verbal sparring that allows for a constant build-up of sexual tension. With as much as they act like they don't get along, you can sense the similarities of their souls that will make for a satisfying pairing. Morgan is a strong-willed woman who doesn't believe in what she can't see. She's more than capable of protecting herself in a fight and uses brains along with brawn. The concept of religion is foreign to her and she too has been hurt being loved and lost. To find true love and and save humanity she has to take a leap of faith, both Earthly and Heavenly.

    The world that Erica Hayes has created is rather bleak. In a city both dark and gritty I kept waiting for Batman to show up. Instead we have a group of battle-armored winged angels who are all sexy as sin fighting to keep humanity safe in a bloody physical battle against a slew of villainous biblical creatures. The majority of the story actually involves battle in one action scene after another, so those who don't like heartpounding action will be disappointed. I however do like a good fight and found myself fully immersed in these action-packed sequences and surprised once or twice by shifting loyalties.

    This was an intriguing and exciting start to a new and gritty Urban Fantasy series. The origin of these half-Fallen Angels is rather murky but will hopefully be clarified in future books. The main couple is likable but not as loving as some romantics would hope but their sexual chemistry was palpable. The remaining embattled angels completely won me over and I look forward to seeing them get one step closer to redemption through their own HEA. Fans of the paranormal will find the origins of these creatures difficult to comprehend but this is an ultimately satisfying start to a series I look forward to reading more of.
