5 out of 5 stars
Wow, I don't know where to begin describing this book. It was a fantastic start to a new series that I can't wait to read more of. Even with all the new books about angels out now, this one really stood out. It's the story of the four favored archangels search for their archesses, or soul mates. Uriel, the former Angel of Vengeance, is now a famous actor and is doing promotional signing for his new movie when he runs across Ellie, his archess. They are instantly attracted to one another and Ellie gets scared. She's spent the last ten years hiding trying to keep her gifts secret. Of course there are other factors trying to keep them apart that ends in a battle of good and evil.
Michael, the former Warrior Angel, is now a policeman with the NYPD. Gabriel, the former Messenger Angel, is a fireman with the NYFD. Azrael, the former Angel of Death is now a famous rock star. Along with these guys we have Samael, the Fallen One, and Max who is their guardian. Each of the characters stand out in their own right and each compelling. I really think that this series will just keep getting better with each book. I know that I'm hooked after reading this one.
