Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waaaay Better Than The First This is book two in the Angels Of The Dark series and I thought it was so much better than the first in the series not that the first one was bad in any way but I found it a bit slow and this one was ful of action and mystery and a better romance storyline. I thought Koldo and Nicola were awesome matches for eachother they bounced together so well. Overall the book was great I thought the story and characters were very solid and I look forward to the next in the series. :0)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beauty Awakened First time reviewing a book because it was just that disappointing, and I read a ton of various romance genre. Bought this due to liking previous older, books by author despite the bad reviews. Deeply regret it. Only finished it hoping the book would somehow redeem itself. It didn't. The author's religious beliefs (newfound?) completely overtake the storyline in the most obnoxious, relentless, preachy manner. Even worse, the dialogue is so cliched as to be ridiculous at times. If this is the author's new direction, it will be the last book of hers I'll ever read. Such a shame.

About the Book

"New York Times"-bestselling author Showalter delivers the second book in the scintillating Lords of the Underworld spinoff series, Angels of the Dark. Original.

Read from the Book

Koldo stalked down the ICU ward of the hospital. He and the warrior with him were hidden from human eyes and protected from human touch. The doctors, nurses, visitors and patients misted through them, completely unaware of the invisible world playing out alongside theirs. A spirit world that had given birth to this natural world, the human world.A spirit world that was the true reality for all creation.One day, these humans would discover just how exact that statement really was. Their bodies would die, their spirits would rise—or descend—and they would begin to understand the natural world was fleeting, the spiritual eternal.Eternal. Just like Koldo's irritation seemed to be. He didn't want to be here among the humans, on yet another silly mission, and he really didn't like his companion, Axel. But his new leader, Zacharel, wanted him busy, distracted, for he suspected Koldo teetered on the verge of breaking a heavenly law.Zacharel wasn't wrong.After everything Koldo had endured in his father's camp…after escaping and spending centuries searching for his mother, Koldo had finally found her—and locked her inside a cage in one of his many homes.So, yes. Koldo teetered. But he wouldn't ever cause the woman irrevocable harm. He wouldn't even lower himself to break one of her nails. For now, he simply hoped to teach her the horror of being trapped by circumstance, as she had taught him. As she was still teaching him.Later, he would… He wasn't sure. He no longer liked to consider
