Title: Angels of the Knights – Fallon
Author: Valeria Zambito
Genre: Fantasy / Paranormal / Romance / Young Adult
The hallowed world of Emperica is everything she had ever hoped for as a mortal—immeasurable beauty, unconditional love and light. But, with affection for humankind still burning within her, she joins the Knight Caste to train as an angel warrior. As a Knight, she will give up her wings and return to the place that killed her to use her unique powers to search out and destroy the evil Kjin that roam the earth. As a Knight, she will stop at nothing to protect the mortals in her care.
The elders warn her that the path she chose will be a solitary one. That she will not have the same bond with humans as she once did. But, as far as she knows, the elders had never met Kade Royce.
When her duties place her in the path of this handsome former cop, emotions buried long ago rise to the surface and she is powerless to ignore the depth of her feelings for this young man. She knows instinctively that she has found what most people search their entire lives for.
Ignoring the risks, she invites him into her world of danger, but soon their lives collide with explosive consequence. As a result, Fallon realizes with heartbreaking despair that she can no longer hide from the painful truth. In order for Kade to live, she must destroy him.
The first thing I have to mention was that I found myself whipping through this book. Zambito does a good job of keeping the pages turning. I finished it in 1 day. And if you’ve read anything else on my blog, then you know I love anything fantasy, so angels and demons on my won’t-hesitate-to-read list. Although there are a few dark points to the story, for the most part it’s light and uplifting. I think with the fast pace of the book, there were parts when the dialogue wasn’t as strong as it could have been. That’s not to say I found cliches or anything like that, there were just a couple of conversations that seemed rushed, or that perhaps the characters were being very bold and blunt when a little more subtlety would have worked nicer. However, this didn’t distract me from the flow of the story. Zambito also does a nice job of leaving us with a little teaser at the end for her segue into Book 2 – which is all about Blane – a character we don’t get to learn a whole lot about in Book 1. I’m curious to see where the story will go, whether Fallon (& her Intuit) will make any more appearances in the other books in the series, and how Blane handles his new role!
