Duration: 9 hours 0 minutes

Summary:

She was just an ordinary mortal...until death catapulted her into a seductive world she never imagined.

'You're dead' is so not what Allie Watson wants to hear. Unfortunately, it explains a lot. Like the dark, angelically handsome man who ferried her to this strange, hidden land. The last thing she remembers is stepping off a curb in front of a cross-town bus. Now she's surrounded by gorgeous fallen angels with an unfortunate taste for blood-and they really don't want her around. Not exactly how she pictured heaven.

Raziel is unsure why he rescued Allie from hellfire against Uriel's orders, but she stirs in him a longing he hasn't felt in centuries. Now the Fallen must brace for the divine wrath brought by his disobedience, and they blame Allie for the ferocious Nephilim clawing at the kingdom's shrouded gates. Facing impossible odds at every turn, the two must work together to survive. Raziel must defend his spirited lover against the forces of darkness-because Allie may be the Fallen's only salvation.

    So I really have an issue with romance stories being in first person, I don't know why but I all ways feel like I'm only getting half the story, so this one is on the back burner till I am in the mood to tough out the first person narration.

    This was a wonderful surprise of a listen. I wasn't expecting it at all from the description (uh, shes DEAD). It was instantaneous action, but his resistance to her and her take-no-prisoners approach--loved them as a couple. It was an interesting world view too. There is only a superficial similarity to Nalini Singh's Archangel series but Douglas delivers an original plot and a very intriguing worldscape, offering a twist on the christian pantheon with many of the usual suspects. The romance was delicious in taking a very contemporary view to both characters and their disturbing sentiments about the great sex but no relationship. And thank you for delivering on a female who's full of vices (I hate high heels!), uses contemporary language, and comes with "some" experience instead of the typical 30- to 400-something virgins waiting for mr right (insert finger down throat). I never thought I'd like a heroine so (formerly) enslaved to haute couture, ridiculous high heels (did I love the irony of THAT downfall), and spending all her money on looks. All that fluff (is THAT the author's real message on the condemnation of this heroine to hell?) is quickly dispensed with as she is dropped into a Twilight=like forks, WA atmosphere (because of course that is where fallen angels will build their enclaves against evil). mmmm. I loved this book, stayed up all nite listening. And I'll likely do the same tonite with the sequel. Keep these coming, Ms Kristina. As for the narration--loved the double narration in first person by the two performers. To have both their thought processes narrated of same situations was wonderful and more nuanced in delivery. I liked the performance (heck, gave it my rarest 5 star). Put this at the top of your reading list!

    Run!!!! Do not read! I cant even describe how awful this book was to me. The narration of two people in first person got confusing and the characters themselves were disturbing. Then you throw a sexual scene that basically hinged on non consensual... well that was awful awful awful!!!!
