From 29 Reviews

Sometimes the only choice you have is to surrender.

Cade is a fallen angel who still endeavors to follow the right path. That is until the angels’ new ruling body decide the warrior is the perfect match to carry out their new assignment. Schooling the young, snobbish Abagail in the art of demon fighting is a challenge he could do without.

When Abagail is summoned by the Tribunal, she is beyond eager to finally take her place among the angels. She already has her eye on an elite warrior for her mate. But when the nephilim is thrust into a mission with a fallen angel, she goes from thrilled to mortified.

Like oil and water, the two are constantly at odds with each other, but Cade can’t deny the attraction building for the aloof nephilim. As their mission draws to a close, Cade realizes Abby will walk out of his life and into the arms of another, unless he can convince her to surrender to one night of passion.

Captivating read!

Not my usual genre, however, this book has a great plot and detailed characters that hooked me right into the story from the very first page and kept me totally captivated until the turn of the very last page!

It just keeps getting better -

by Joyffree

It just keeps getting better -
I was left with so many questions after book 4 - where is the son? Is there going to be retaliation? Who is next? We found the son and he is absolutely nothing like I had depicted (I even kind of like him) and we have a new evil which I did not see coming, running amuck- and a few characters were dealt a hand that held it's own karmic justice -so much action and reaction packed in this one!
This is Cade's story I can say with all honesty - strap your self in because you are in for one "hell" of a good time - Cade is to train Abby for the tribunal - Abby is an aristocrat who is under the assumption her wings are white and all others are beneath her - There is nothing but attitude, snark and some serious heat between these two
I read a complimentary copy of this book
If you have not delved into this series - What are you waiting for?

New to this path of her life Abby has certain views of the various classes of angels and her suitable choice for her life's station. However, this particular angel is more darkness that the light he dons, while her fallen angel trainer has more honor than she expected of him. A conflicted Abby falls victim to Cassiel who also threatens her family, while there is mass mayhem in Peru that unsettles all realms. Can Abby make the right choice on who her mate is, and what's with the disturbance in Peru?

could he be too good for her?

by MJM2003

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Oh dear poor Abby is an angel in training and she has decided who is going to be her mate. But in this book by Valerie Twombly, Abby who really needs taking down a peg or two finds out that she won't be trained by the one she wants as a mate but by a fallen angel called Cade. And what is even worse she has to go to hell to have her training from him! She is such a snooty young angel that really is so naive that she has more than defence training needed, she also needs to learn better judgement of people/angels/demons. I thought Cade was wonderful and the scenes between them were often funny with the way Abby reacted. Still she seems to be getting a second chance to have better judgement but will she learn it before she finishes her training with Cade who has developed feelings for her? Has he done enough to win her heart? This is a real page turner that I encourage you to grab quick and buy!
DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED.

A spoiler free review!
I have enjoyed this series from the very beginning. Valerie Twombly has crafted a book of creativity, imagery, and depth. Her characters are complex, multi dimensional, sometimes ambiguous, portrayals. Abby and Cade are great together. I enjoyed the antagonism, that gives way to attraction, then love between the two. Wherever V.T. goes, with this series, I shall definitely follow

Embrace The Darkness

by S Lange

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Abby/Abigail lead a very pampered human life, but she has always known that she was a nephilim and had a place among the angels. She has been summoned by the Tribunal and told that she would have to be trained in self-defense before she is made an actual member.

Cade a fallen angel is to be her tutor. Cade has been guilted into this training session with a somewhat snobbish Abby. Abby has had no experience with the fallen but in her mind she thinks they are beneath her and resents being trained by someone not worthy of her station.

While they are both a bit somewhat put out with each other they have noticed that their bodies are annoyingly aware of each other. Cade would love nothing more than to give in to his desires to bed Abby. While Abby is fighting her body’s traitorous response to Cade, her mind keeps reminding her that she has her sights set on an elite angel named Cassiel.

When there is a disturbance that is affecting both light and dark Cade and his other fallen brethren are tasked to seek out and contain the disturbance. Cade is torn with wanting to stay and continue to train Abby and wanting to take to the skies to protect all of his loved ones. When that decision is taken away and Cade and Abby find themselves in the middle of the disturbance only complete surrender to each other and to the darkness will keep them alive.

This is another tale of the Eternally Mated Novellas. Cade was one of the angels that fell with Lyzander when he did it to save his wife Kelana a succubus demon. While Cade misses heaven he is realizing that there is always something to do in Lulerain. He feels needed and that keeps his mind occupied and lessens his loss of being a fallen angel. While he is perturbed that Abby has turned up her nose at him, part of him wants her to have the best and if having and elite angel claim her is better for her he will stand aside for her best interest.

Abby’s previous world was more black and white. The good guys were angels everyone else was subpar to her. After spending time training with and getting to know some of the fallen in Lulerain she realizes just how narrow-minded her previous assessment was. Her new knowledge gives her the much-needed strength to face some really tough choices coming her way.

In this new novel the author introduces some new characters and I am very excited to see what direction she takes with these new additions and if they will get their own stories. Logan has a more central part of this story and he is very intriguing. Plus there is a new addition Riot that I totally fell in love with.

This book is darker than the other two books I read in this storyline. A trigger alert as one of the characters tries to coerce Abby, it thankfully doesn’t happen but I thought I should mention it in case anyone has any triggers. Like I said this storyline is a bit darker than the others.

Amazing!!!!

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I love love love this series and this book is amazing!!! I can't wait for the next book!!!

Such an exciting, thrilling and addictive tale that takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions throughout this book! I love the way that this author writes with such detailed and vivid descriptions into the people and the world that they all live I'm. Once readers read one of her books they will be hooked for life.

I adore Cade’s character from the very first moment that he appears in this book, the combination of the ultimate bad boy with a good soul is a very addicting and compelling read about! You really see him evolve throughout the book, he has always been protective of those he cares about and this shines through the darkness. He is a very Alpha male and has stubbornness in spades and is still trying to adjust to how much his life has changed. He also doesn't realise that he still has a heart and how big it actually is and what he will do to to protect those that he loves. I loved experiencing Abbey’s realisations that not everything is at it seems, not everything is black and white and she certainly changes throughout the book and its a joy to experience that change. Being young she still has a lot to learn and she definitely has people that surround her that help with that. She goes through so many things throughout this book, you experience her deep fear at something she feels she cannot change but you also feel her relief and love at being in a situation that she never expected. She is so strong inside although she doesn't realise it at first and she has such a capacity to love those around her. I loved reading about her!

This is a must read book, series and author that I can't recommend highly enough!!!!

Great! With each book I read in this series, I say this was my favorite. Then the next one comes out and I love it even more. Ms. Twombly has created such vivid world you get lost in it. It's not necessary to read the previous books, but it would make this more enjoyable. The story follows Cade (a Fallen) and Abby (a Nephilim). Their journey is full of action, drama and even humor. But, it's the passion between them that really heats up the pages. Previous characters all play parts, it is always fun when they are involved, along with a few new ones. I can't wait to find out what will come next. This is my voluntary opinion of an advanced copy I received.

Epic!!

by Megan

I have truly fallen in love with this series! I love the juxtaposition of what we think of evil, such as the Fallen Angel, Cade, being better in all aspects than an archangel who should be the epitome of goodness. Each of us both have light and dark, just as Abby and Cade struggle with. But it's what we choose to do with the darkness that sets us apart. Abby was a hard character to accept at first. Just because she came from a wealthy family in the human realm doesn't mean that she deserves to be with an elite in the clouds. I'm glad she learned this important fact, but the way in which the lesson was taught was heartbreaking. Cade, who had only been following orders, fell to repent for a sin that he at first didn't realize he had committed. But he found that the Maker continued to banish him from Her presence. Perhaps there's a reason for that. You'll have to read it to find out exactly what happens. I plan on buying this series, but I would like to wait for the collection. They are just so wonderful.
