Jordyn is a spin off from the bestselling Saving Angels Series
Hand to hand combat training: Check Cardio and strength training: Check Daemon hunting: Check Anomaly: Check Check, check, check, check...That's all my life is. There's nothing ordinary about me. I'm "special." I know this because I'm reminded of it every stinking day. I can kick a Daemon's ass with both hands tied behind my back. I can run up a mountain without breaking a sweat. Know what I can't do? Get guys to notice me, or hang out with friends like normal people do. I can't just be ordinary because I have an Arch Angel for a mentor who is always breathing down my neck, and a family of angelic Guides and Protectors who scrutinize every little thing I do. Just for a day I want a life where I'm no longer some anomaly, where I don't have to feel like a lab rat.
And then I met Emrys. Okay, so my mentor and family hate him, but probably for good reason. After-all, he is a Soul Trader, and they aren't the most trust worthy beings. But, he is sooo hot with his green eyes, leather jacket and the sexiest tattoo you've ever seen running down his back. And-he doesn't treat me like a project.
I've got myself in quite a little quandary here. Choosing between my responsibilities and the Trader that holds my heart is something I didn't sign up for. Torn between two different worlds, I must now decide who to trust and who to walk away from. What's a girl to do? See what I mean? I am an anomaly. I am Jordyn.

This wonderful spinoff novel really had me on pins and needles as I read. It picks up a few years after the conclusion of the phenomenal Saving Angels series, and I was a complete fan girl stalker when I found out that King was working on a spinoff series!! I absolutely adore the Saving Angels novels and couldn’t wait for this one to come out. And, I certainly wasn’t disappointed! King has written another masterpiece, just like every other novel that came before it, and I am in absolute awe of her sheer writing abilities! Truth be told, I wasn’t a real fan of Jordyn (the character) in the beginning… her lack of ability to follow the rules drove me a bit crazy, and her extreme cockiness and disregard for her family’s feelings really made me livid. And yet, she’s completely and one hundred percent real. Her thoughts and feelings, especially as the odd one out in a family of daemon killers, make complete and utter sense, and it is no wonder she falls for Emrys so quickly as he offers her a world of freedom, something she has yet to experience in her own niche with aunt and uncle. And Emrys? He’s perfect. If I were to have a book boyfriend, it’d definitely be him! First of all, he has an s on the end of his name, which is something I’ve loved ever since I was in high school myself, though I very rarely meet someone with a plural name. And second, he embodies the lovely bad boy image with his tattoos, leather jacket, and nonchalant attitude, making him my very own dream come true. Let’s just say that he sets sparks flying as he enters the scene, and I adore him, just like Jordyn does. Kings story flows seamlessly, taking readers along for the ride as Jordyn discovers her wants, needs, and abilities when it comes to love, daemons, and the truth about her past. I was pleasantly surprised by the twist at the end of the novel, and I’m already dying for the next installment.
A bad *ss, daemon hunting, anomaly who just wants to be a normal girl…who could ask for more? Throw in a hunky, bad boy Soul Trader that she’s not suppose to like and you have a fun read. What do you do, especially when you have an Arch Angel for a mentor…rebel of course. The twists and turns this story takes will have you flipping pages quickly to find out what happens next. A fun and exciting read. My recommendation…add this to your TBR list!
Can't wait to read other books by this author. This is a short novel filled with many plots and surprises. An action packed and laced with a little bit of romance.
I first saw Jordyn earlier this year and after reading a sexy excerpt, I knew I had to read this! Not to mention, it's Tiffany King. And I love everything I've read by Tiffany. So this was a no-brainer! I do feel like a lot of the book was setting everything up for what was to come towards the end. I'm glad we got to know Jordyn's character and I love that Tiffany didn't info-dump on us. She didn't hesitate in throwing us into this paranormal world, but she also didn't overload my brain either. I really liked Jordyn's character. She's a tough, snarky heroine who can kick some serious ass. She doesn't hesitate in saying what she's feeling and I loved her sarcastic, no holds attitude. She is definitely relatable to the younger crowd because she talks just like they do. It was strange at first to read about a heroine who talked so similar to my high school kids, but then I realized: she's 17. And that's how 17 year olds talk! What struck me as strange to read, really grew on me because it really defined Jordyn's personality. However, Jordyn is special. She's not a Guide or a Protector, like her friends and family are- she's just a girl who can lay you flat on your ass without another glance. She can literally set Daemons on fire while they're in their true form. And like the blurb says, she has an Arch Angel who serves as her mentor. However, all that is great, but Jordyn doesn't want to be special. She longs for normalcy. She wants to be able to date, go to school, and not have someone always constantly watching out for her. So what do 17 year olds do when they feel suffocated by authority? They rebel, of course! Jordyn meets Emrys, who, even though he's a Soul Trader and she doesn't know if he plays for the Light or the Dark, she is still drawn to him. She likes the danger and the mystery surrounding him. She craves the uncertainty, the freedom he has to offer. And he's certainly not bad on the eyes either! However, her Arch Angel mentor, Haniel does not trust Emrys and neither do her aunt and uncle. They go out of their way to ensure Jordyn is protected and watched over. Obviously, this doesn't blow over well with the girl who feels suffocated and is tired of playing by the rules. I really liked Emrys and I hated that I felt conflicted about him. But I really was waiting for the other shoe to drop. His and Jordyn's relationship seemed to be flowing too seamlessly- so I knew something big was going to happen. These two really do have some very hot scenes together- and I can't wait to see the direction Tiffany will take them in the second book! We readers really know about as much as Jordyn does about her past, her powers, and what her purpose is in the grand scheme of things. Haniel is quite tight-lipped when it comes to divulging information. He takes his orders from the Light and I am quite curious about his role in Jordyn's life and why he has held back so much information from her. Overall, I really enjoyed this one and I felt it was a good way to start the series. Tiffany definitely left me ready for more, especially after the spiral of events at the end!
I have read all of tiffany kings books and i have to say i think i like this better than the original angel series. Jordyn is badass an i love her cocky personality. She is not like some of the other female leads who just sit round crying and freaking out waiting for the male lead to take care of her. I thought it was nice change of pace and cant wait for book 2. I also liked how the original characters were incorporated in this book. Not to mention emerys. So all in all i would recommed this book espically if you enjoyed the angel series.
