Overview

Burning Dawn (Angels of the Dark Series #3) by Gena Showalter

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter returns with a sizzling Angels of the Dark tale about a winged warrior renowned for his ruthlessness, and the woman who becomes his obsession….

A tormented past has left Thane with an insatiable need for violence, making him the most dangerous assassin in the skies. He lives by a single code: no mercy. And as he unleashes his fury on his most recent captor, he learns no battle could have prepared him for the slave he rescues from his enemy's clutches—a beauty who stokes the fires of his darkest desires.

Elin Vale has her own deep-rooted scars, and her attraction to the exquisite warrior who freed her challenges her every boundary. But Thane's unwavering determination to protect her means she must face her greatest fears—and enter a world in which passion is power, and victory means breathtaking surrender.

Holy hotness! From the very first page . . . I was hooked, riveted, and on the edge of my chair. There are so many twists and turns. I was truly looking forward to Thane’s story and Showalter delivered! While held captive as a sex slave, Thane is poisoned by a wicked Phoenix, unable to control his bodies lascivious response to her. When Elin sees the fierce hero for the first time, she quickly devises a plan to save them both. Vengeance can make anyone dangerous, even an angelic warrior of the Almighty . . . especially when Thane’s already teetering on the edge of losing his wings and falling from grace. He is fierce, powerful, and protective of those he considers his, yet brutal to those who wrong him. The care he exerts toward Elin, a tenderness he doesn’t show others, made me fall head over heels for him.  But secrets . . . oh, the secrets they keep destroy them as they struggle with their attraction for one another—talk about being on an emotional roller coaster just waiting for the plunges.  Thane is one of my favorite characters and I couldn’t wait for his story. Sometimes I worry when I have a fav hero before reading their book because I have certain expectations for their “woman.” Elin held her own in the immortal world and I was proud of her. (If you like the Harpy’s from LOTU you’ll like Elin). She is young and a little timid, but there is a hidden strength inside of her just waiting to burst through. And like every character on their path in life, she has to grow. Her journey made her so much more real. Even the strongest of women still have a vulnerability. The fact that she wasn’t just discovering herself, but also helping Thane “weed” through his own demons gave me a deeper respect for her.  Desire and heat were definitely not lacking between Thane and Elin! Oh. My. Goodness. The tension and powerful attraction between the two was palpable—scorching, searing from the inside and radiating out. Let me just say the scenes are super hot!  The only way I can describe it is "Burning." The world-building is so in depth—the character’s so developed, colorful, and rich, that they reach a spot inside of you and pull you into them. I love seeing the Lord’s, Anya, and the Harpy’s pop in, meshing the two series together. I loved it. :)

Have you ever read a book that you just couldn't put down? Devouring it. Page after page is flying by and and you can't stop because it's just that awesome. And yet the closer you get to the end the more your dread builds, because seriously? You know what's going to happen when you finish. Yep, it's the hated book slump, I mean what is going to be able to top the amazeballs book you have just finished? Yeah, you know what I'm talking about. Well peeps for me that book is Burning Dawn. I honestly don't know where to start with my review because I adored every facet of this book. The characters, the storyline, the emotions, all of it was just total awesomesauce! I couldn't put it down! I just love a book that can make me angry, laugh out loud like a loon and then teary eyed from one page to the next. I have been a fan of Gena's ever since I first fell in love with Maddox from The Darkest Night (I won't go off topic but my god I could wax poetic about that man for HOURS!). Needless to say I am a PNR fan for life because of her. Another thing that I've always loved is Gena's ability to create stories that will send your emotions on a roller coaster ride that you'll never forget. Love and hate, betrayal and forgiveness, treachery and devotion. Burning Dawn has all of that and more! This has everything in it that Paranormal Romance fans are looking for. You have the hot, broody ALPHA (and I type that in caps because Thane is all things alpha) the fragile yet courageous heroine, powerful storyline, stunning backdrop (uhh... they live on a cloud, how freaking awesome is that?) and Gena's trademark humor (I have got to get myself a Multiple Scorgasm shirt). And Holy HOTNESS Batman! Never fear, the heat level in this book is out of this world! I love nothing more than seeing the tortured hero, and man Thane has some serious inner demons, brought to his knees by his heroine. Elin was the perfect match for Thane, she was the light to his dark and I loved seeing her blossom as her confidence grew. I have to say Thane surprised me. Instead of trying the typical macho "I refuse to see what she means to me" crap he embraced it! Sure he resisted at first, trying to protect her from himself but not for too long. Thane LOVED Elin and once he realized how much he held nothing back from her. BEST. ALPHA. HERO. EVER. Ooh and the dimples, oh my god Thane has dimples! *swoon* I also loved that we got a few cameos from our favorite LOTU characters! :) I HIGHLY recommend that you buy Burning Dawn but make sure to clear your calender because once you start you're not going to be able to put it down until it's finished! IT'S THAT FREAKING AMAZING! * I won an early copy from the author on her website for an honest review

This is Gena's third book in the Angels of the Dark series and by far my favorite. Thane's story is heart breaking, but watching him learn to love (himself as well  as Elin) is a sizzling, on the edge of your seat, sexy page turner! Ms. Showalter's unique sense of humor is, as always, ever present and will leave you either lusting or laughing! Great job Gena, and can't wait for the next Angel's story!

If your looking for a REALLY great book that you won't be able to put down that get Gena Showalter new book, Burning Dawn the newest book in Angels of the Dark series. The moment I picked it up I couldn't put it down. There are so many twist an turns, you think your have it figured out, but then Gena gives you another twist that have you saying "WHAT, it can't happen like that!?" The moment you pick it up make sure you set an alarm otherwise your forget to like eat, or something. It's that good. The best one yet of the series! Come's out April 29th, so go ahead an get your pre-order in!

I couldn't put this one down! It has been a bit of awhile since I found a book that left me so hooked and distracted that I read at work instead of worked. This book did that. It was delicious, hilarious, passionate, intense, and emotional. I mean the words Elin came up with and the way she could turn a phrase; it was hilarious and fun. Loved her. Her emotional struggles were real and I sympathized with her dilemma. Thane was intense and larger than life. Their relationship was entertaining and enjoyable to watch unfold. The conflict was large and posed a problem, one that was realistic and formidable. The villain had to be big and bad to give our couple a challenge and he did. I truly enjoyed watching Thane open up and fall in love. I loved watching him work to win Elin. There isn't anything I didn't love about this story. The only negative is the undetermined amount of time I am going to have to wait till book 4 is released. There is no cover yet for it or a blurb, which bodes ill and a long wait in store.

The overarching theme of this book is to find beauty from ashes. Everyone has weeds in their lives that need to be yanked before it's too late. This book focuses on Thane and Elin; the woman who broke threw his barriers, helped to lessen the pain from his torturous past, and taught him the meaning of love. I agree with Sylvia Day in that, “Showalter’s signature blend of sizzling attraction, breathtaking words, and lethal stakes rocks me every time!” This book was very well written and the characters were very well developed. The only thing that I didn't care very much for Elin. I know she's in her early twenties, but she came off as very immature and juvenile in her speech and actions. After all of the horrors she experienced in her short life, I expected her to be less juvenile. Because I found her character to be annoying I couldn't in good faith give this book 5 stars, so I'll give it 3.5 stars. If there are more books in this series is be interested in reading them.
