Bittersweet Seraphim by Debra Anastasia

Suffering is worst when you're doing it alone. But Emma's taking Hell like an angel-even though her languishing began with having her seraph wings torn from her back. Now her worst enemy lords his body and his evil desires over her while she tries desperately to remember the words to her favorite prayer. As Devil, Jack used to have Hell and its women humming like well-oiled machines. Too bad he's nowhere near the place now. Stuck on Earth as a human, he must work with a ragtag team of exiled minions and half-breeds to save the angel who's become all that matters. Rescuing a seraph is the plan, but breaking into Hell means letting evil things out. Once they collide, minions and angels converge in the battle of the ages: good versus evil. But which side is which? Will Jack destroy the world as he fights to save Emma, his true and timeless love, from a damnation he designed? An action-packed sequel to Crushed Seraphim, this tale reveals-time and again-what happens when the heart's deepest desires break free. With a story both sizzling and sensual, emotional and enigmatic, Debra Anastasia invites readers to join a battle with nothing less than love on the line.

About the Author

Debra Anastasia is busy, just like every other mom. There's dinner, the dogs, the two kids, and her violent IBS—which is under control thanks to medication except for occasional multi-tonal farts. Her first love and crowning achievement is her thriving career as the weirdest mom on the block. Her writing started a decent handful of years ago when—along with the animals and humans in her house—the voices of characters started whispering stories in Debra's ear. Insomnia was the gateway to plots that wouldn't give up, wouldn't let go. Now they stalk her everywhere. Halfway through making lunches, a twist takes hold and—fingers full of peanut butter—she finds somewhere, anywhere to write it down. Debra lives in Maryland with her family. You can find her at and on Twitter @Debra_Anastasia. But be prepared...

Bittersweet Seraphim 4.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 10 reviews.
TheAutumnReview More than 1 year ago's the truth, I was on about a 3 rating with this one until around 40% in. Don't get me wrong, I was enjoying the book, but I wanted more Jack. Can you blame me? Ultimately though,  Bittersweet Seraphim was entertaining, unique, and sexy.  Now I like Emma, but Jack makes these books for me. He's funny, sexy, and he has the BEST lines. He could definitely melt my panties off in a flash. But what I love the most about him is how he loves. Despite the fact that he was the Devil, the love he has for Emma is pure. Jack is so dedicated to saving Emma and there is nothing that will stop him. Seriously, he's a gem.  As for the overall story, you definitely need to stay focused on what's happening. There are a lot of players involved in the story and they are all significant. It would be easy to get lost, if you aren't following along closely. Still, it truly is a fascinating action packed tale. And the ending....let's just say it was damn near perfect and I will say that I used quite a few tissues. The ending skyrocketed my rating for sure.  Debra Anastasia has such a unique style and her sense of humor matches my own. I became a fan of hers after reading Poughkeepsie. (You must read it if you haven't!) The Serphim Series sucked me in to Anastasia's world even more. She has a creative and brilliant mind for sharing stories that will take you on a wild ride!

Yes, it's really THAT good! Brought to you by OBS reviewer Autumn Beware of spoilers! Jack is back! He and his crew have to do something that no one has done before – break into Hell. Saving Emma is something that he should be able to do with a snap of his sexy and talented fingers but he is no longer the Devil and is now painfully human. He has gathered together a band of unlikely heroes to find her and defeat Everett, his successor down under. Emma is dutifully doing her time in Hell and gladly surrendered her wings so that Jack could be safe and have his soul back. She is forced to endure Everett’s torments from inside a cage that Jack cleverly designed to keep the reigning Devil away from her. She never waivers from the path that God has set before her and finds strength in an unexpected place. God answers prayers and she knows that soon she will be delivered. Jack and his gang of brave half breeds face what seems to be insurmountable hurdles to bust Emma out of Hell and it’s the supporting characters that add an amazing twist to Bittersweet Seraphim that will mark your heart and touch your soul. I have waited (not so patiently, I might add) for Debra Anastasia’s next book. I knew it was going to be something special, but I couldn’t have imagined the incredible journey it would take me on. There is the epic love of Jack and Emma – a love between a devil and an angel. It should be doomed from the beginning but love has a funny way of surviving the impossible – even death. The new characters of Kate, Nero, Jenny, Seriana, Dean, Violent, Mine and our old friend Jason – add beautifully crafted layers of emotion and feeling to the story. Bittersweet Seraphim will make you cheer, make you cry and make you laugh out loud. Yes, it’s really that good… This review and more at openbooksociety dot com

Not Your Average Angel Story What an understatement. Having read Debra Anastasia's beautiful story, Poughkeepsie, I was dying for more of her work. Anastasia's stories are unique. Her characters can be sweet, sexy, dangerous, or docile, but they all manage to to have a wicked sense of humor and a "ballsy" (for lack of a better word) charm. So, were Crushed Seraphim and Bittersweet Seraphim what I expected? Well, yes and no. I got the out-of-the box story that I was hoping for. Seriously. Emma is a an angel who is just as likely to swear and flip the bird as she is to bless someone. An angel who lovingly tends to those in need, and can't help but fall for the Devil, Satan Jack. I thought I was prepared for his special brand of sexy swagger. Not even close. This man was beautiful, seductive, dangerous, and, dare I say, honorable. Unff. This man was so sexy, he made me hurt. Here's the deal: Imagine Johnny Depp. Yeah. Combine that image with that sexy mouth and that's all it takes to make the ladies, and angels, fall hard for Satan Jack. Jack and Emma's love story is glorious, but not without tragic road blocks. I was also surprised (pleasantly) by the elaborate, all-encompassing tale of love, pain, desperation, sacrifice and hope. I expected the Seraphim Series to be primarily about Jack and Emma. It really is, but it is also about the divine and demonic beings that set their journey in motion and the ones they meet along the way.The road these characters, particularly Emma and Jack, must travel is frightening, tragic and ultimately, worth it. Bittersweet Seraphim was a delight from beginning to end. It begins with the tragic love story of a minion of hell and a human. I would think that anything less than Emma and Jack would be unsatisfying, but this opening pulled me headfirst within the story. Jack and Emma quickly gain center stage of the book and while Crushed Seraphim seemed to focus more on Emma, Bittersweet Seraphim gives us SO. MUCH. JACK. Though I love awesome Emma, Jack's larger role in this book made it even more awesome than book one. The Seraphim Series was great. Honestly, the more I sit here and consider, the more I'm loving it. So yes, I did get the lively, entertaining story I was expecting, but I also got so much more. More heartache. More pain. More love. Bittersweet Seraphim had one of the most beautiful endings that I've ever read. An ending that left me with teary eyes and a happy heart. I can safely say that Debra Anastasia and her remarkable stories are truly one of a kind.

This book is the sequel to Ms. Anastasia"s book "Crushed Saraphim", which it followed seamlessly. Both books were good, I enjoyed reading them, which is surprising since I'm not normally into the whole angel/vampire/demon thing. There were several sets of "main" characters in the book, all with their own interconnecting stories, that began in the cliff-hanging first book. I really dislike cliff-hanging books, but that, in itself, wasn't what prevented me giving this book five stars. Throughout both stories the characters would avert one disaster only to get swept up into another - it reminded me of the old silent movie character in "The Perils of Pauline". You know, the one who continually found herslf tied to the railroad tracks waiting to be saved by the hero? The constant state of emergency became a bit tedious and predictable after a while. All in all, it was still a good book and I will probably read both of them again. Having said that, I highly recommend Ms. Anatasica's third book, "Poughkeepsie". It is a stand alone, self-contained story, in some ways similar to her Seraphim series, but a much more riviting read.
