Amazon has it at the moment. See 2 questions about Raziel…. Lists with This Book. Anne Stuart fans, angel aficionados. This book captivated me. It started out kind of strange, with the shifting 1st person POVs, and the fact that the heroine gets hit by a bus at the beginning of the krustina not a spoiler, trust me.
When I heard she had written a fallen angel paranormal romance under a pseudonymI was there. Anne Stuart takes the legends of fallen angels and spins her own version.
In this case, God pretty much washed his hands of the humans, and left them under the control of his lead angel, Uriel. Uriel is a cold, unforgiving, disdainful regent, who thinks of eouglas humans as a mistake.
He dislikes the Fallen about the same, if not more.
Raziel: The Fallen, Book 1
He has hatched plans to make their eternal lives miserable, and has plans to end them all. Our heroine is a woman who grew up with a puritanical religious mother a Jew by birth and rearing who becomes a Fundamentalist Christian.
As a result, Allie is an atheist who writes Old Testament mysteries that debunk the religion. And his xouglas rolls eyes in ecstasy. And he almost dies in the process, because the Fallen are exquisitely sensitive to fire.
Allie spends the night sleeping next to her sick angel rescuer, hearing the screams of the horrible Nephilim fallen angels who have become ravening, cannibalistic beastsall around her, and shell-shocked that this is actually happening.
However, she is soon to discover that she is his bonded mate, and destiny is not something she kritina laugh at. I started this story not knowing at all what to expect.
Kristina Douglas (Author of Raziel)
This is one of those books you have to read with an open mind. I found myself utterly seduced by this story.
I really liked how Ms. Douglas Stuart uses the angel theme in this book. It was kind of odd at first, the idea that the angels have to drink blood, how they take human wives who die before they do although they live longer livesand cannot have children. How they are essentially trapped in their own compound, other than when Uriel calls them to escort certain humans to their afterlife destination. This story made me care about the angels, feel bad for the Fallen. Of course, I had to put my own beliefs about angels and God out of the picture when I read this, because they are different from the concepts in this novel.
But, for a fiction world, it was very interesting.
As far as supernatural themes, angels are in my top three with faerie and douglax. I love when a book does angels really well–bringing a new dimension to the concept, and giving me a novel way to look at them. I loved how Ms. Allie was pretty annoying, quite frankly. She was a bit too much the Sex and the City-type heroine for me at first glance. She seemed to be the type of heroine to make her life more difficult than necessary. I understand that this was a lot to take in, but her defiant determination to believe in nothing supernatural got kind of old, especially with the evidence right in front of her.
But then she actually became likable as the story progressed. I saw duglas she was wearing armor. Her determination not to believe was her way of fighting back at her mother, who loved God more than she loved her daughter. For her to be in a scenario where she was actually dead, surrounded by supposedly mythical creatures probably would be a lot to take in. And I liked that she stepped up when her help was needed, more than once.

I admit I liked that she was tough and mouthy. She needed to be, with a mate like Raziel. Honestly, Allie was more of a chick-lit type heroine than I would have liked, but she ended up being a heroine I could root for. Raziel is yummy with a cherry on top. After all, he had been cursed by God for his sin of disobedience, cursed to never have children, and to be a blood-eater blood drinker.
He is the picture I would have of a fallen angel that is not evil. Sad, lonely, a stranger without a home, exiled from heaven. He put up barriers against Allie at the beginning, having lost his wife in the past, going through that heartache, and determined not to face it again.
But, she worked her way through those barriers. And when she does, look out! They actually dougglas to be rid of each other, and were both working to find a way to achieve their mutual goal. However, over the time that Allie stays in close proximity with Raziel, they can no longer ignore their bond, which turned out to be destiny, pushed away by their mutual fears of intimacy.
Even the growly jealous expressions loved those. Possessive hero kgistina, fear not. The relationship development between Raziel and Allie felt authentic. I liked the tension between Raziel and Allie. I think this showed up very well considering that it was first person. And the intimate point of view just worked for this story, in my opinion.
I really loved the way Raziel took Allie flying, how he wrapped her in his wings during intimacy which is something that the angels do with their mates. Oh those wings were so gorgeous and beautiful. Not likely to happen, doublas at least I can read about it. This book gave me the post-reading glow!
But there is a distinct, irresistible feel this book. I look at books similarly.
They taste good during the read, and they cause this power release of happy reading endorphins, and this is one of them. But my tbr pile calls. View all 39 comments.
It’s really strange how I have a completely different opinion on this book now. But I really enjoyed this one, the world building and the romance as well.
Great humor, witty too. I LOVE fallen angels, well, they don’t even have to be fallen, just angels is enough for me: But OK, I got used to it and the story was good, but nothing special, Raziel and Allie were good, but again, nothing special, I didn’t root for them to be together, I just read so I could finish What I did like – the story with the angels, a whole new view to it, with an archeangel bad guy, and the fallen ones trying to free Lucifer to lead their army: I think Razkel might even be a good guy in all this lol, so I really razlel all that: I’m off to read the second book, hope it’s better: View all 15 comments.
