Stranded on Earth and healing from her wounds she finds an unlikely friend and ally in Clark the human running from his own destiny. Together they have to figure out what Lucifer is up to before it's too late for everyone including Heaven and Hell.
Dark and intense this book definitely took me for a ride! It went from bad to worse for Michaela and she absolutely suffers for the decisions she made even if she didn't know how terrible outcomes would be. And Lucifer is just as cruel devious as you would expect him to be making me cringe more than once. The story is laid out well and more than once I didn't expect what what was coming so I look forward to seeing where it goes from here. In my opinion The Hunted One is recommended.

I was given this book for a honest review. Lucifer is trying to take over not only earth but heaven as well. He has found allies in heaven that has thrown out the arch angels and their general Michaela has lost her wings and thrown down to earth. "It was the end of the world, but it was taking Heaven and Hell with it." With the Arch Angels in hiding and Gabe in hell, Michaela has to find a friend on earth and does in Clark. Clark is a descendant of Enoch and was born into the duty of protecting angels on earth. This is a great story and I can't wait to read the next book. Collett, does a wonderful in describing the scenes and the emotional turmoil within the characters. This book is a great read for any age. SBMoralesWas this review helpful?

'The Hunted One' is an exciting and enchanting first novel in a fresh New Adult fantasy/paranormal series. The book follows main character, Michaela, who is an Archangel in Heaven, until she is betrayed by fellow Archangels and thrown to Earth - stripped of her wings and powers. Those who betrayed Michaela and Heaven accuse Michaela of being the one who let the fallen angels inside of Heaven, causing an ethereal war. Although Michaela is forced to stay on Earth without her wings, she vows to do everything in her power to return to Heaven and reveal the truth about what happened, along with what she believes is the holy angel's own plan to take over Heaven and begin the End of Days. Along with her Archangel friend, Gabriel, who was also banished to Earth, and Clark - a human devoted to protecting the angels - the three will stop at nothing until the truth is revealed and everything restored to it's rightful place.Was this review helpful?

Although there are tons of books out there that are about angels and fallen angels, this one is a serious breath of fresh air into the genre, as well as pushing it even further by being a New Adult title. I loved the concept of the story and devoured every single detail that the author gave me about all the angels - holy and fallen - and about their histories, the end of days, Heaven, and everything else that the book centers around. I couldn't get enough of all the vivid descriptions and intricate details throughout the book and I really hope that we get more of the same in the next installment. Michaela is a kick-ass main character for the book. She's an Archangel and is basically in charge of keeping Heaven safe. When she gets betrayed by her fellow Archangels - those she loved and considered family - she has to gather her determination, strength, will, and intelligence in order to figure out the truth and find a way back to Heaven. Although she's such a strong lead character, she does have faults - which only seem to amplify the longer she's on Earth. I liked seeing her flaws because it made her feel more realistic and I could easily identify with her. The other two main characters in the story are Gabriel - a fellow Archangel banished to Earth, and Clark - a descendant of Enoch whose duty is to protect the angels. The three make a strange team at first, but they work together well and form a great dynamic. The story is actually told from varying viewpoints - those of Michaela, Gabriel, and Clark - which I believe adds a whole new level to the book. The reader gets to see into the minds and hearts of each of these characters in an intimate way that wouldn't be possible otherwise. The plot was full of action and even some romance along the way. There was a lot going on, but I didn't feel overwhelmed or confused at all. The pace was quick and I found myself eagerly reading to find out what was going to happen next. I have to admit that I definitely liked watching the relationship between Michaela and Gabriel change and grow - it was an added bonus to an already awesome story line. I highly recommend this book to fans of fantasy and paranormal, as well as those who enjoy angel and New Adult fiction. I'm already eagerly awaiting the next book in the series to be released!
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
