I am a HUGE fan of anything paranormal, urban fantasy, etc. I receive paranormal and get stupid with excitement. When it happens to be angels and demons, well ... you had me at hello. Especially when the demon happens to be sex on legs (or wings, wink wink). I read this in a day and a half and that is solely due to the fact that Atonement is one-hundred percent addicting. Anauel (aka Ana) is an angel that lost her love Samuel, centuries ago, due to becoming a demon. Samuel was an angel who did wrong and was striped of his wings and sentenced to an eternity in Hell. Ana was sent to earth, in human form to either destroy Samuel, or revert him back to an angel. Samuel on the other hand, is in search of an angel soul to capture and make him extremely powerful. The way that he must capture this soul is astonishing ... just wait until you read that! Meanwhile, there is a war brewing between Heaven and Hell over a hybrid. The angels will do what they can to protect the hybrid, although Hell wants their hands on him as well. With Samuel being a demon and Ana being an angel, what paths will each take? Will the two be at war against each other? Will Ana turn Samuel and fight the good fight beside her, or will he capture Ana's soul? Atonement is truly an amazing read. A++++++ and highly recommended. Again, if this genre is what you like to read, you can NOT go wrong here. Take my word for it! Happy Reading!!!

Where to start , This book 2 picks straight back up where the last left off . Fantastic doesn't begin to describe this book , Once again Julie manages to keep me up late from not being able to put the book down . The plot line keeps pulling you in more and more . I was hanging out for this one after the first book and I now I have to wait for the next book to be released

Atonement is the 3rd book in the Chronicles of the Fallen series but it is the first book from this series that I have read. This book was written so that you can read it without having read the previous two books in the series (Fallen and Redemption). When I read this book, I was not wondering if I was missing anything. It wasn’t until I finished the book that I realized it was actually the 3rd in the series. This story is about an Angel and a Demon and it is written from both points of view. Because of this, you know the thoughts and intentions of the two main characters (Ana and Samuel). However, the characters obviously don’t know each other’s intentions. Because of this I found myself almost yelling at one character or another during different parts of the book. I knew what one character was intending and didn’t want the other character to fall for it. As I was reading, however, I realized that we were not getting ALL the thoughts of the characters. So even when I thought I knew what the characters were scheming, there was enough info left out so I wasn’t convinced I knew everything and STILL ended up wondering what each character was up to. Is he lying or telling the truth? Is she going to fall for any tricks or does she understand what is going on? It really had me antsy because I knew enough to be wary but not enough to be confident where the character was going. The end of the book came much quicker than I was ready for. I knew how many pages were left but found out that some of those pages were a sneak peek into the next book in the series – Culmination. When I realized the book was over, I was speechless because I wanted to see how the situation was going to play out as this situation had been alluded to throughout the book. I was all ready to finally read what happens and the book ended. There are two good things though: 1. Culmination is scheduled to come out next month; 2. I can go back and read the first two books of the series now! I did not read the beginning of the 4th book that followed the last chapter. I like coming into a new book not having read any teasers. Yes, I’m odd, I know...

This is a triple review covering all three books. It did take me a while to get into this series. I wasn’t really crazy about the voice used in these books. I prefer 3rd person to be past tense rather than present tense, it just didn’t read very smoothly, it didn’t feel natural and kept me from really getting into the story. There was also a lot of unnessasary descriptions. I don’t need to know how many spoonfuls of sugar everyone take or that they stirred it after adding the sugar. (Who wouldn’t?) Sometimes the descriptions would be so lengthly and detailed I would get distracted and not know who they were talking about until after the two pages of reading how one person got dressed. However, I did enjoy the plot very much. Once it got going it The first book was pretty slow to get going but it also had a lot of background and building of the world the characters lived in so that by the time you get to the next two there is quite a lot more going on. The second book had less detail than the first, which was good, but still had a bit too much. The take on fallen angels and the other supernatural creatures that were features was different than what you would expect which I really liked. It gave them a bit more depth. I loved how the plot became more detailed and the twists throughout the book were not super predictable. The final book is no longer about Lisa and Alex, but about Samuel. It’s a great continuation to the story with some of the other characters who need their story told. This one could be read as a standalone (unlike the first two) and you’d understand it, but I think it would have more meaning if you read books 1 & 2 first. The amount of detail in this book has once again improved. I probably would have rated this series a 5 if it didn’t go overboard with all the description. It had an original plot, which is something I love. But as much as I enjoyed it I found it a tiny bit difficult to get pulled in completely like I wanted. While it did get better from book to book, in the end it was still way too much, to the point where in some parts I didn’t know what was going on but I knew every detail of the setting and every move each character made. This series is great, but the amount of detail in much of it was a little too excessive, but it’s defiantly worth a read. I think this series speaks a lot of the amount of growth this author has had in their skill and would recommend this series to any who like Angels, demons and more. Rating: 3.5 out of 5

Atonement (Chronicles of the Fallen #3) by Julie Morgan 5 of 5 Stars SPOILER ALERT!!!! In the third installment of The Fallen series, Morgan follows Samuel in his recent encounters with his former love, Anauel. An angel in every sense, Ana hopes to find the good which remains in Samuel despite his status as Fallen.  Round and round we go as Ana and Samuel encounter each other time and time again, Ana with the hopes of rescuing the angel inside of her beloved demon and Samuel with his mind set on seducing Ana for her soul. The eventual seduction of Ana is HOT HOT HOT because of her innocence and the patience of the relentless Incubus in the process of doing so. It sure didn't take Samuel long to convince her that his life of sin and seduction is more alluring than her life of salvation and purity. And so the Angel of Prosperity loses her white wings and finds herself on the other side of life..... Remember Alex, Lisa, and Jonathan? They're wanted. Apparently, Lucifer sees them as a threat and deems in necessary to remove the hybrid and his loved ones from existence. Much to everyone's surprise, Samuel steps in to protect this unique family from the Master of the underworld.  Is there a defining point between good and evil? Can someone TRULY change their ways? We all like to think that the answer to both questions would be "yes." I love Morgan's work because she puts just enough detail into her stories to paint a picture but leaves enough to the imagination so that her readers can fine tune those images to fine tune that picture to their liking. I usually don't look for images to match my mental picture of characters but I did this time. The only downfall that I found while reading Atonement was that my curiosity regarding Alex's family and their fate had me nearly jumping out of my seat while trying to be patient and await the climax of the story. I am a VERY impatient person!!!! All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing behind the scenes of the dark side of the battle between Heaven and Hell as opposed to mostly following the angels in the first two installments. *Complimentary copy given in exchange for an honest review.*  Meagan, My Secret Book Spot

This is book #3 in the Chronicles of the Fallen This series cannot be read as a stand alone.  This is Samuel's story.  You get to know the demon a little bit better and see why he is a fallen angel become demon.  You get to meet the woman that has a piece of his heart, Ana. Ana is an angel, and she has been sent down from heaven to dispose of Samuel, but Ana sees the good in Samuel and tries to show him that he can be better and change. If he changes she will not have to destroy him. But will Samuel corrupt the Angel first with his deceptive ways?  This story was amazing! It tells the story of Samuel and helps you feel a little bit of something for him! I really liked Samuel in this story, it made me really care for him. Which is saying something because I hated him in the first two books! Of course he is a demon so there is a valid reason for this deep seeded hate! BUT can someone be a little bit redeemable!? Well I love bad boys and he is a bad boy to the core. You also get some of Alex, Julie and Johnathon. You will be surprised and shocked at the turn of events that does happen.. I was so captured by this book at every turn of the page that when I finally got to the end, I turned the page and it was just done. I was like WHAT? SERIOUSLY? I was so upset:( BUT there will be another book AND I cannot wait to read it!! So Julie HURRY, HURRY, HURRY!!! Thank you for this amazing series! <3 YOU Rock HARD Woman!!!!
