Eli is a Fallen Angel and knows the rules that govern them. Don’t befriend a human; don’t interfere in their lives; don’t have relations with them: and never, ever reveal your true self. Unfortunately for Eli, he broke all the rules when he fell in love with Ryden O’Sullivan. Brought up in front of the Watcher council, the Elders are giving Eli until end of All Hollow’s Eve to have Ryden fall in love with him all over again-this time as a human. If he fails, then his life is forfeited.
ELI kicks off an amazing new series by Karen Michelle Nutt called the Warriors For The Light/Fallen Angels series. I picked this up at bedtime and basically could not put it down. It drew me in, kept me glued to the pages and had me so hooked by the end of chapter one, I was unable to go to bed until I finished the book. It was wonderfully well written and very engrossing. This was the first book of this author’s I have read and I just had to find out if she had other books for me to explore. With each page, the reader is drawn into a world of fallen angels, love and soul mates. The secondary characters kept the story flowing smoothly and I am eager to see who the next book will be about as there were a few characters that had me intrigued.
Meet Eli, a fallen angel who breaks all the rules that govern his kind by falling in love with a human. There are some among the Fallen Angels who fear change and resist it at all costs. Eli is given the chance to prove to the Elders and the Watchers that there are soul mates for them all. But there are two catches: One, he is to be a human, his glamour and wings bound and two, he has until end of All Hollows Eve to get his love, Ryden O’Sullivan to fall in love with him. If he fails, his life is forfeited. I loved Eli. He was a breath of fresh air and delivers a charisma that drew me in. His deep convictions that there were soul mates for the fallen angels were powerful and made him a few enemies in the process. Eli is a strong man who finds himself in a unique position when he has to woo his lady’s heart-AGAIN!!! Strong characters keep the story flowing nicely and the many twists and turns left me gasping as I flipped the pages to see what would happen next.
ELI: WARRIORS FOR THE LIGHT is a story that isn’t just a romance but one that asks “If you found your soul mate once, can you fall in love all over again?” This question is one that will run through your mind the entire time you read this exciting new kick off to the Fallen Angels series. Ms. Nutt is a talented storyteller who delivered a story that will intrigue you from the beginning. I am eager to see which fallen angel is next to find their soul mate. I just hope it won’t be too long in the future. If you are looking for a new twist on fallen angels, then grab ELI: WARRIORS FOR THE LIGHT and settle in for one pulse pounding ride. I just recommend you don’t start this right before bed.
