One dark angel, a human girl, and an eternal battle over the soul… A tale of dark fantasy and forbidden romance, what if the sacrifice required to save the one you love is too great to give? He’s a dark Angel sworn to protect and defend, forbidden to touch the only temptation he’s had in centuries. She’s a human girl whose light and pure soul has become a target for the forces of darkness. They must fight a battle not only for her soul but of the heart, but can she be saved in time?
I’m quickly becoming a big fan of Nikki Landis, Fallen From Grace has been part of the latest Kindle Scout campaign and I was lucky enough to have Nikki ask if I wanted to read it while the campaign was running…I wasn’t going to say no.
In Fallen From Grace we meet Emily, just as she’s about to die in a car accident something saves her, an angel, Bash. The love between them is instant (insta love is kind of Nikki Landis’ thing but she does it so well you don’t question it so if you normally find it awkward I urge you to give her books a go anyway). And so comes the dilemma, how do an angel and a human find a way to be together when it’s expressly forbidden by God?
Add to the mix the utterly adorable Jarrod, Emily’s long time partner and fiance and things are just completely complicated.
This book just kept tearing my heart out. I didn’t know which direction it was going, which direction I wanted it to go and how I felt at the end, other than completely exhausted and emotionally drained. I will say Jarrod was my favourite character by a mile. I loved him so much and I wanted to just grab him and save him from the hurt he kept being inflicted with. Just writing this a week after reading the book is bringing tears to my eyes again. The man was a saint, forget the angel Jarrod was something else entirely.
Bash loved with his whole heart, he was completely consumed by his love and that led him to make some decisions which I felt were quite questionable. But I think we can all agree love does that to a person, addles the brain and all! I didn’t always feel he was a pleasant character but maybe that was the centuries of being an angel fighting wars.
Emily was very naive I think she went along with a lot of things for the sake of it. I certainly got the impression she hadn’t wanted her relationship with Jarrod for a long time but had just gone along with it because it was easier than breaking it off (I really hate when people do that especially to amazing men like that). She shows a lot of strength and gumption towards the end of the book and I really admired that, as though she had come out of her shell and woken up developing into who she needed to be.
Overall, I got really consumed by this book, so much happening and characters you can really get attached to. I can see it doing really well once it goes on sale.
A huge thanks to Nikki Landis for sending me the eARC so that I could read and honestly review this book.
