The Prometheus Project Book One Lilia Desjardins is convinced that the death of her husband, Gideon, was not a suicide. She travels to New Gotham to meet with someone who claims to have more information, only to find the shade dead. The following tragedies pile up to frame Lilia for death and destruction. Police Detective Adam Montgomery, a former angel, is trying to figure out the enigmatic woman who presents as the perfect suspect. However, he has been with her during several of the murders. The two are in a race against time to find out what Gid discovered to get him killed before Lilia is caught in the crossfire. If you're looking for a new take on the dystopian society and nuclear fallout, this is the book for you! Copy gifted by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

"Fallen" is a great read for those who enjoy the sci-fi genre in romance. The characters are engaging and the author leads them well through the events of the story. The twists and turns of the tale are interesting and fun to read. I have enjoyed many of Claire Delacroix's books and I like this one as well. I plan on reading the other books in this series as well. Copy gifted by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Seeing one of my very favorite authors in a new light! This book was quite a departure from those I have previously read by Ms. Delacroix (I've read nearly all of her medieval romances). It takes place in a future where radioactivity from nuclear attacks creates mutants who are treated as sub-human. Angels volunteer to assume mortal form in an attempt to save mankind from themselves. I found the story to be compelling, the world building fascinating, and the writing (as I've come to expect from Ms. Delacroix) beautifully descriptive. I definitely plan to read more of this series.

This story is a who-done-it mystery wrapped up in a post-apocalyptic package with romance and passion thrown in to spice it up. It is complex and I never figured out who the bad guy was until they revealed themselves. Claire Delacroix creates a post-apocalyptic world using news releases, government press statements and edicts, and short history lessons about how the US got to be where they are in 2099. She pulls in political commentary, religious and moral commentary, and conspiracy theories in order to tell a story that ended up requiring me to stay engaged. I loved it! I loved not knowing who the bad guy was, I loved that Montgomery is led to believe that Lilia is the murderer, that she is set up for several murders that are taking place while she is trying to figure out who killed her husband. On top of that, we have Montgomery, who is an angel who volunteered to come to Earth to complete a mission; so we end up having the whole angels and the devil, good vs. evil theme thrown into the mix. Delacroix tells a story that could have ended up being a jumble of ideas, plot twists, and character development, but she incorporates all of her elements smoothly. I look forward to reading book two, Guardian.
