Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Crossfire series comes the first novel in a hot-blooded paranormal romance series... Adrian Mitchell is an angel of immense power and insatiable desire. Leading an elite Special Ops unit of the Seraphim, his task is to punish the Fallen--angels who have become vampires--and command a restless pack of indentured lycans. But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals--losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly two hundred years, he has found her--Shadoe, her soul once more inhabiting a new body with no memory of him. This time he won't let her go. With no memory of her past as Shadoe, Lindsay Gibson only knows she can't help being fiercely attracted to the smoldering, seductive male who crosses her path. Swept into a dangerous world of tumultuous passion and preternatural conflict, Lindsay is soon caught in the middle between her angel lover, her vampire father, and a full-blown lycan revolt. There's more at stake than her love and her life--this time she could lose her very soul...show more

Wow, what an experience! This book sure is a refreshing take on the whole PNR-UF-angelic novel genre. I thought the whole "she's my soul mate and I wouldn't let her go now that I've found her again" was very YA-ish, and a little cliched, so I took a little time to get past my prejudices and finally picked up the book. I have to say, I was - am - not disappointed. The characters were absolutely lovable - the male protagonist, Adrian, was hot and protective, female protagonist, Lindsay, was the epitome of self-sacrificial selflessness. You could feel their love for each other permeate from the books, and it was nice to soak up all that PNR-UF goodness. However, I am giving it a four because it took some time to get into rhythm with this book. It may be because of my lingering prejudices, I don't know, but it may also be because the book wasn't as interesting at the start because of the instant connection thing that annoyed me. But I LOVED the ending. The ending is a total 6 out of 5 stars. I seriously gobbled up the ending (which is the last one-third of the book) in a span of half an hour. This is a story of true, unconditional love between lovers and a father and his daughter (ok, not much on the familial love, but it's still there), and how they had to overcome obstacles thrown at them from their past. I would say I'm looking forward to the sequel, A HUNGER SO WILD, but it's going to be about Elijah, whom I sorry to say, am not really interested in. Come on, bring us more Lindsay-Adrian love, pretty please?show more

I had been wanting to read this book ever since I first saw that beautiful cover and when I realised it was on NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to grab a copy for review. I wasn't disappointed as I found my initial enthusiasm was well justified. This book has some wonderful characters and a plot full of great new concepts and ideas. I found the relationship between Adrian and Lindsay really believable and highly charged, and that was maintained throughout the story, which was good. The secondary characters, such as Elijah, also come across as well-formed and interesting. There was plenty of action in a plot that offered an interesting twist on both angel and vampire myths. There is really something for fans of all paranormal here since the story features angels, vampires and lycans and I loved the way these different beings were linked together. This was a hard book to put down and the ending left me eager for more. It was a great opening for the series with plenty of action and lots of ideas introduced that will no doubt continue into the next book. I will certainly be keen to continue reading and this may well be a series I decide to invest money in and get the print copies so that I can reread in the future. I received this book as a free e-book ARC from NetGalley.show more

It took me a while to get into this book, and I think part of the problem was because I had just read a similar book last week. Like "Ashes of Angels" this book was about Fallen angels and Vampires. But where "Ashes of Angels" had demons and muses, "A Touch of Crimson" Had lycans and normal angels. Once I was able to get into this book, I enjoyed it. It wasn't my favorite, but I would read the rest of the series. The characters were very strong and well written. Adrian was Very sexy! Lindsay was a very strong and independent character who held her ground and tried to fight the feelings developing between her and Adrian. Overall, like I said, not my favorite, but I will read the following books.show more
