First off, I'm a huge fan of the anti-hero in Romance. I love his contempt for following rules and ambivalence about doing the right thing. He's a survivor and looking out for number one is what he does best. Ruthless is his middle name. But en route to his 'happily ever after' with the heroine, something sad happens to the anti-hero. He becomes reformed. Pretty much, he loses his bite which is what made him so fascinating in the first place! In Howard's latest, this 'declawing' is refreshingly absent which makes Simon aka the Assassin, one of the most compelling characters in Romance I've come across in a long time. When we first meet him at the beginning of the book, he's terrifying. When the heroine's drug dealer boyfriend offers him a bonus of $100,000 and he says he'd rather sleep with Drea one time, it's a big GULP moment. Something profound happens between them that afternoon that the Assassin can't quite shake off. So when Drea disappears with a big chunk of the drug dealer's money and Simon is offered the job of finding and killing her, he's conflicted about carrying out the hit. I'm not going to reveal too much more of the story, but when he believes Drea is dead and then discovers to his shock that she's actually alive, I can only describe his reaction as a total unraveling. It's an emotional body blow and one that forces Simon to acknowledge the possbility that miracles exist. At the end of the book, even though the emotional cost to himself is high, he eliminates an enemy to protect Drea, and you realize with satisfaction that this kitten still has claws. He might be in love, but he's still a cold-blooded killer. My only quibble, is that Drea and Simon spend a lot of time apart in the book. When they finally get together, there's maybe 40 pages left. I would've loved to have seen more of them together. When they are, though, it's explosive. Also, there's not a lot of dialogue. All of which I can forgive since Simon is so deliciously dark and complex.

This book was different, but once it started rolling, it turned incredible! There's a certain evolution of the characters that's intense and real. I almost felt like I was intruding in on their lives at certain points. Linda Howard always knows how to put danger, and heart-pounding uncertainty into her books, and that's a big reason why I'm such a huge fan!

Death Angel was very entertaining and had such a unique twist to the characters that I was captivated nearly from the first line. A page turner that will keep you on your toes to the fascinating end. Linda Howard, you did it again! Thanks!

This book was not what I expected at all, which was not a completely bad thing. Overall it was a good read, however, there were a few "mystical" elements to the book, so beware all you logical and literal readers; it may make your rigid minds rebel! But, because I'm flexible and a great lover of Ms. L.H. in general, I even liked the unbelievable parts. The story was also very sweet. Kudos to L.H.

I am sucker for action/romance. The crash... AMAZING. This book is the book that will cause me to pick it up just because it was written by Linda Howard. This is one of my top 5 EVER most favorire books. I own it in hardcover and I am going to add it to my nook library for sure.

From the first chapter Linda Howard grabs your attention. I couldn't put the book down and it's been a long time since I have read such an attention getter. I am now searching for another book by Ms. Howard and hope it is just as exciting. If you love the action packed, exciting love story then this is a must read!

This is the book you want to take on vacation, read during a snowy day, read when it's raining, whenever! Loved it. It's not often when a book captivates me from page 3. Loved the characters and once I started reading, I couldn't put it down! Thank God I had the day off! Definitely a must have.

I was seriously disappointed with most of Howard's work after All The Queen's Men...is she too old for passion? But this book is classic Linda Howard!! Worth the sleepless night!

Main characters were a surprise & a delight. Most main characters aren't that flawed, but it worked well in this story.

I have become quite the Linda Howard fan, she is creative and can pull an interesting and unique story with each book. This one does not disappoint. There is a nice twist in the middle that keeps the story interesting. I really come to like the characters, especially as she keeps them each true to themselves. And, I always like the more steamy, love scenes...again, no disappointment there either! Worth the time to read...

The main characters are a little off beat for romantic suspense but the writing is so good it just doesn't matter. The plot goes from dark humor to believing in angels - just go along for the ride. This is good entertainment - if you are looking for reality, read a newspaper.

Thank God!! I was getting worried. I love all Linda's books but the last one or two made me a little nervous. (Don't get me wrong, they were ok) Thought I was losing my favorite 'MUST BUY' author. BUT, this was fantastic. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. I had to read it straight thru. Thank Goodness it wasn't a work day. Simon is the total anti-hero.

Loved it. Very sexy and romantic. But the ending disappointed me. I wanted them to be able to have kids together.

I didn't think I was going to like this book at the beginning but I quickly got over my hesitation. The characters are different than your average hero/heroine but they grow and change throughout the book. It also was not predictable and I had to keep reading to see what happened. This is one of those books that sticks with me. I am new to reading Linda Howard and I have read several of her books and have not been disappointed yet.
