Title- Lucius; The Fallen
Series-  The Fallen Series # 1
By- Tara S. Wood

“Relish this moment in My favor. It is your last.”
  Six angels once sat at the right hand of The Almighty, but an ill-fated decision cast them out of Heaven. Now they serve Him on Earth, slaying demons for their redemption. They are…The Fallen.
  Lucius, once revered at the side of God, fell to Earth with his brothers to pay penance and atone for his lapse in leadership. Wingless and forsaken, they have all paid a price for their complicity. Lucius’ hubris is now a curse, and he cannot rest until they carry out the last of The Almighty’s orders...and stop a war that has been millennia in the making.
  Persephone Roberts is always in the right place at the right time, the serendipity allowing her to help people on her travels. When it leads her to cross paths with the band of hard-living fallen angels, she sets her sights on their leader, and is determined to restore Lucius’ faith in their quest. And in himself.
  But the ancient evil the angels strive to fight has put Persephone in its crosshairs. It will be up to Lucius and his brothers to save her and destroy the minions of the dark. Can the amber-eyed beauty with her accepting heart heal wounds that cut soul deep, and force him to reclaim a glory he once tossed aside? Is he strong enough to realize the path back to Heaven begins with her, or will he be forever...fallen?

My Review~

I had mixed feelings about this book. When it first started I was really into it and totally digging the story. With Fallen Angels what's not to love? But then there was insta-love. Now hold on a second before you condemn me for this. I don't mind insta-love for the most part. But I don't like it when it happens within the first 15% of a book. And when it happens the very same day they meet. It's not like I didn't like the characters together because I do, I just wish they had to fight for it. I wanted to fight for them, to route for them. Instead I found myself not caring about them as a couple.  

As far as the characters go, I was a little disappointed with all of them. I feel like she barely scratched the surface and I wished... no I wanted so much more. I so wanted to like these characters. To really connect with them, but I just couldn't do it. However, I was fascinated by Khemrhy and I really wish that Tara S. Wood had given me a little more of her. 

There was a lot of mystery about this Lucius but instead of adding mystery to the story it really just left me wanting. There were so many times where I got frustrated because the story jumped without clear indication or I was left without the whole picture. I love mystery in a book, but sadly I didn't enjoy this mystery.

Now there is no denying the fact that this book is HOT, but this may have been too hot for me. 

Overall the story read pretty well. It was fast paced and full of action. Tara S. Wood did a great job writing the action scenes. I really enjoyed them, they flowed and didn't remove you from the story. Instead they added to it. These Angels are warriors so it was awesome to get to really see that side of them. Tara S. Wood did a great job using humor to connect the characters and I quickly found myself loving the banter between the Angels. In fact the humor was one the things I enjoyed the most. 

To sum it up... I think you should give this book a shot. Despite the things I didn't like it kept me interested and reading. This is definitely one book that you need to make the decision for yourself on. If you like smoking hawt Angels, then this is the book for you. 

Series- The Fallen Series # 2
By- Tara S. Wood
Genre- Paranormal Romance/Angels

Six angels once sat at the right hand of The Almighty, but an ill-fated decision cast them out of Heaven. Now they serve Him on Earth, slaying demons for their redemption. They are…The Fallen.
  “Remember, angel, all ways in the end return to Me.”
  Jude knows pain. He feels it with every inhale and exhale of breath. It is a constant on his mind and on his skin; a reminder of the depth of his disobedience. And his cruelty. With his fall from grace, he walks the Earth with his brothers, their steps set on a shadowed path to redemption, killing demons in His name. The angel of Vengeance may not have his wings, but he still burns.
  Coriander Rhodes finds things. The intrepid little archaeologist sniffs out relics buried for eternity with the determination of a bloodhound and the arrogance of the devil. Her brash nature and bold tongue keep the big angel on his toes, inflaming and infuriating him at the same time.
  When danger strikes at the heart of the angels’ inner circle, Jude discovers he is faced with a task far greater than he has ever known. The light must be protected at all costs, in all of its forms. The ultimate evil has a plan, and with the most innocent among them at stake, Jude knows he’ll finally have to face his sins and meet the pain in his soul dead on. Coriander’s touch is the only thing that soothes, but is it enough to make him whole? Can she help him work through the pain long enough to remember his faith, or will he be forever…fallen?
