Book Review – Angel Betrayed by Cynthia Eden


If you read my blog at all you know I generally don’t do book reviews on my blog, but since I haven’t got anything else to rave about today, I might as well tell you about the book I just finished reading. If you want to know how much I enjoyed it, let me explain that I picked it up on a whim Friday night about 8:30. and I finished it about an hour ago.

Now that might not sound like a fast read, but consider that I had my grandkids for the weekend, and I took them to watch The Crimes of Grindewald  Saturday afternoon. So I didn’t get to read it from cover to cover, which I probably would have if I could have. I was hooked from page one!

This is not a new book, the release date was 2012 so many of you may have already read it. I’ve never been good at reviews because I don’t want to give away too much of the story, but here goes. Seline is a half breed demon, who’s just starting to realize the things she’s been told her whole life may not be entirely true. She’s feisty, and I got to say I love her attitude. She is no wimpy little heroine. She knows what she wants and she intends to get it, even if that sexy Fallen Angel gets in her way.

Did I mention a sexy Fallen Angel? Hot damn! Make that double Hot Damn! Even though he’s a fallen angel, and not a heavenly one, you can’t help but admire him. You can even admire the reason he got kicked out of the heavenly hosts (but I’ll let you read about that for yourself) And you just have to love the way he’s fixated on Seline. It might take him a while to admit it, but he is every bit as hooked on that luscious little demon as I was on this story.

There’s a very complicated plot that keeps you guessing, a couple of Hellhounds that add a bit of local color, some more Others (as in non-human characters) and even a little bit of magic.

I highly recommend this book, and I’m going to hunt down the rest of the series as my own little Christmas present to myself. If I had a review system (did I mention I don’t usually do book reviews?) I’d give this one 5 stars, or maybe 5 eternal flames. Yeah. It was that good!

Disclaimer: The author did not give me a copy of this book or any kind of reward for reviewing it or even suggest I read it. I actually don’t know the author (but she just landed on my favorites list)

It’s listed on Amazon here or you can look it up where ever you get your books.
