Meet the Author

Christine and her husband coach a little league baseball team. She loves camping, fishing, swimming, and too many other things to list. While she writes a lot of romance in her books, romance movies aren't really her thing. She likes to watch the action thrillers, scary movies, and anything suspense. She loves to read a good historical romance! Also, she is completely fascinated by all things pirate.
The thing Christine loves the most, outside of writing and her family, is making people laugh. People come and go from our lives, influencing and changing us in all kinds of ways. Sometimes the influences are positive, but then again, some are negative. If we use the negative as a tool for learning, we could very well change or even save someone's life down the road. She strives to be the type of person that touches someone’s life in a positive way, even if it is by writing a book. She believes that if only a quarter of the people in the world would loosen up and smile, it would be a better place.
If she could share one message with the world, it would be that nothing is impossible and you should never stop following your dreams.

I love paranormal/romance books.  Risen was my first experience reading about fallen angels.  This book drew me in right from the start .  I was so intrigued that I had a hard time putting this book down to eat and sleep.  It has everything I love in the books I read.  a strong  female, a hot, sexy male,romance, heartbreak and a villain.  I know it is a good book when I not only laugh and weep but I talk back to the  characters sometimes.  Christine Jame accomplished all of that.  I am surely looking forward to reading the next two books in  the Chosen Chronicle series.

I received this book, digital version, in exchange for an honest review. I have always been a reader, and I have enjoyed many genres. From time to time when I start a new book, I like the thrill of just jumping in head first. Rather like taking on a blind date, a sense of not knowing what to expect. That is how I chose to approach this book, with not much idea of what it dealt with. I am very glad I did!! The ride of twists and questions waiting for answers was so much better for me! The Chosen Chronicles: Risen has an intriguing back history for its main characters. I do not believe in giving spoilers, so "Angels" is all I will mention about it. At first I was riddled with questions, wondering what the point was for certain things. Part of this for me, was just due to adjusting to the style of the author. Both main characters, Angelo and Erin, became very real to me. The author, Christine James, did a very good job helping me get to know them, their personalities. As I was brought farther into the Angel world, the suspense became more tangible and understandable. There are real world troubles for them that anyone could relate to. Since Angelo and Erin are not fully human, there are non-human struggles to overcome as well. Even those issues felt real for me. I found that I "grew" with Erin in the story. The Erin I first met in the story is very changed by the end, in ways Angelo is too. The supporting characters are just as defined, just as easy to see. I have to say that I found Blaze to be a rather brilliant and refreshing add! In order to be up front, only a couple things were distracting within the reading. I did come across some edit issues. That has become a rather "regular" thing with some ebooks, so I can say they were minor in comparison to some. The only other thing is more of a personal one. Christine James uses the phrase "wife beater" in relating to clothing, more than once. That is not a phrase used where I am from, it took some time for me to follow her meaning. Plus the mental image that term did create for me contrasted greatly to the reading...it was a bit distracting. Again that is a personal thing, anyone familiar with the term may not even have noticed. I thoroughly DID enjoy this tale, I liked her creativity and how she brought it all together. In some ways I would have loved MORE depth or background at points. Given how the authors style with enlightenment flowed, I am holding out hope for that MORE to be in the next book. 4 stars :)

The plot line of this book is solid, the world building is superb, but the characters, now you will fall in love with them. I finished this book in one setting. Had insomnia.... So I needed something to do.. This book is EPIC! You can feel the chemistry between the two main characters. You can feel Erin's pain when you read about her troubles. You can feel her confusion when her world changes and explodes around her. I would recommend it to everyone! <3 5 stars from me.
