Overview

Once the Fallen’s fearless ruler, a grieving Azazel must find the legendary siren meant to take his lost lover’s place . . . and kill her.

He’s a devil of an angel.

Azazel should have extinguished the deadly Lilith when he had the chance. Now, faced with a prophecy that will force him to betray the memory of his one true love and wed the Demon Queen, he cannot end her life until she leads him to Lucifer. Finding the First is the Fallen’s only hope for protecting mankind from Uriel’s destruction, but Azazel knows that ignoring his simmering desire for the Lilith will be almost as impossible.

She’s an angel of a demon.

Rachel Fitzpatrick wonders how Azazel could confuse her with an evil seductress. She’s never even been interested in sex! At least not before she set eyes on her breathtaking captor. And now she can’t think about anything else—besides escape.

Angels and demons don’t mix.

Rachel stirs a carnal need in Azazel that he never thought he’d feel again. Falling for a demon—even if she has no idea she’s the Lilith—means surrendering his very soul. But if he lets her go, he risks abandoning his heart, his dangerous lover, and possibly all of humanity, to Uriel’s deadly wrath.

When I started the first one I wondered if I was up for a new series and all the new mythology and backstory that you have to be up for to start a new series but it was so worth it. I wasn't too sure about having Azazel's story right after the story where Sarah died but it was great. Can't wait for the next.

Walks in looking for a demon

I enjoyed this book, though I found Rachel's role as the constant victim a bit monotonous. Her constant confusion and lack of direction was tiresome. She does eventually find her own strength which brought slight relief. I suppose I just enjoy a strong femsle lead more than a helpless damsel. Azazel, however, was very sexy in his cold complacency. I'd find Rachel completely agitating also so I don't totally disagree with his initial emotional attachment.

Fallen angel Azazel mourns the death of his wife Sarah, a murder victim. Still in spite of his grief, he seeks Lilith the demon with plans to kill her to prevent the fulfilling of a prophecy that has them wedded. When he finds her, she has no memory of being evil Lilith. Instead she insists she is Rachel Fitzpatrick who admits she has Grand Canyon size holes in her memory. He leaves allowing her to live for now. However, he comes back to Rachel-Lilith because the Fallen Angels like him need to find imprisoned Lucifer before Uriel does. If the latter gets to the former first, the Lord's archangel will judge mankind as sinners and release his wrath on humanity; which in his narrow perspective means the extinction of mankind. The exciting second Fallen Angels urban fantasy (see Raziel) is character driven though loaded with non stop action as readers anticipate the archangel and the fallen angel confrontation. Rachel is the focus between them as her memory is the key to locating Lucifer. Readers will appreciate the tale of the Fallen: Demon seeking to save the world. Harriet Klausner

I actually pick this book series up as a replacement for my L.A. Banks Vampire Huntress Legends Series and was quickly surprised, sonrisa.... I was quickly caught up in the writer's vision of fallen angel's and the whole order of the way God, Heaven, Earth and beyond worked....I gave the 1rst book in her series a 5 estrellas out of 5....I was completely drawn in and captivated from beginning to the very end. I even reread it before I started on the second one in this series..... I am one of those reader's who will follow an Author, their series or at least try other books within their author's works/library.... I'm now reading the second installment of this series, and I have to say that I am not as taken in with the two main character's "Azazel and Rachel aka Lilith" as I was with "Raziel and Allie" in the first installment..... I am finding it very hard to continue, but will do so just because I always finish what I start and I'm hoping that the story surrounding these two character's will blossom into a stronger and more powerful existance..... I like being swept into the books that I read so much so, that I loose all tiempo and place outside of the actual story.... I love being lost within what I'm reading...I will for now give this book a 3 estrellas out of 5..... "My update" I have 2 say that I am so very happy that I continued the secound book "Demon" in this series, sonrisa...I truly loved the book and I can't wait 4 the next one in the series......

Bought for MyselfOverall Rating 4.25 Wine GlassesCharacter Rating 3.75 Wine GlassesStory Rating 4.50 Wine GlassesCreativity Rating 5.00 Wine GlassesNOTE: I am going to be upfront and say this story will not work for everyone. It is dark, the hero is an *ss, and it takes major liberties with the Angel/Demon Mythology. In my opinion, Kristina Douglas has woven a fantastic world with a bit of creative brilliance that really, to steal a saying from a friend of mine, rocked my world!What I Loved: I won't give anything away so this section is going to be short but know that I can talk about The Fallen Series for hours. The world that Kristina built is on one hand very familiar, filled with angels/demons names that we know and may have preconceived notions of. On the other hand, Kristina has taken that world and made it her own in a way that quite frankly floored me.What I Liked: The light hearted moments were few and far between in this book but they were much needed. There were a few times I laughed out loud and was cheering at Rachel as she/said thought things. In fact, it was the character of Rachel/Lilith that I felt connected to from the beginning. She was who I cheered for, cried for, and really rallied for the whole story.Complaints: I didn't like Azazel, not even a little bit, until the very end. Even then, I only gave him a pass because Rachel did. I will say that there are a few times where that line of forced vs choice come up in this book just like the first book. It is a matter of perspective but it does happen again---this is my warning mostly for Melissa :)Why I gave it a 4.25: I absolutely love Kristina Douglas' story telling capability. This story kept me interested from beginning to end even though I didn't like the hero! I can't wait for Micheal's book!

This was a ride that was well worth the journey to the finish. The demon is not one you think it to be and there are more surprise than just this revelation. Rachel (the Lilith) has a whole life she cannot remember and a whole lot of reasons to never forget it. Douglas puts a better spin on a old tale told over the centuries regarding the Lilith and her existence and demise. I found the journey of Azazel and Rachel (the Lilith) to be intriguing, uplifting, revealing, and intense. It is good to remember that there is always more than one side to a story. Here is one that MANkind may have not considered because the fact that history is told from the male point of view. A woman that don't fall into line may very well be a threat to his manhood.

I really liked this book. Primarily because, fantasy aside, it is something that is relatable. Men have a lot of pride and don't see what is there because of his/her own past...
