The Fallen Series by Tara S. Wood: REVIEW + GIVEAWAY: Jude The Fallen

The Fallen Series Tour BannerI’ve had the pleasure of reading Lucius The Fallen. You can check out my review for it here.  Tara is a talented, amazing writer that I’ve had the honor and pleasure of becoming friends with. That being said, believe me when I say my friendship has no sway on my reviews of her books. Her writing deserves it’s own merits. So for the tour, since I’d already ready Lucius, I decided to do a review of Jude. To be honest I had a bit of a crush on him from the first book so I was more than excited to read this one.

First off, here’s a little about both books!

“Relish this moment in My favor. It is your last.”

Six angels once sat at the right hand of The Almighty, but an ill-fated decision cast them out of Heaven. Now they serve Him on Earth, slaying demons for their redemption. They are…The Fallen.

Lucius, once revered at the side of God, fell to Earth with his brothers to pay penance and atone for his lapse in leadership. Wingless and forsaken, they have all paid a price for their complicity. Lucius’ hubris is now a curse, and he cannot rest until they carry out the last of The Almighty’s orders…and stop a war that has been millennia in the making.

Persephone Roberts is always in the right place at the right time, the serendipity allowing her to help people on her travels. When it leads her to cross paths with the band of hard-living fallen angels, she sets her sights on their leader, and is determined to restore Lucius’ faith in their quest. And in himself.

But the ancient evil the angels strive to fight has put Persephone in its crosshairs. It will be up to Lucius and his brothers to save her and destroy the minions of the dark. Can the amber-eyed beauty with her accepting heart heal wounds that cut soul deep, and force him to reclaim a glory he once tossed aside? Is he strong enough to realize the path back to Heaven begins with her, or will he be forever…fallen?

Six angels once sat at the right hand of The Almighty, but an ill-fated decision cast them out of Heaven. Now they serve Him on Earth, slaying demons for their redemption. They are…The Fallen.

“Remember, angel, all ways in the end return to Me.”

Jude knows pain. He feels it with every inhale and exhale of breath. It is a constant on his mind and on his skin; a reminder of the depth of his disobedience. And his cruelty. With his fall from grace, he walks the Earth with his brothers, their steps set on a shadowed path to redemption, killing demons in His name. The angel of Vengeance may not have his wings, but he still burns.

Coriander Rhodes finds things. The intrepid little archaeologist sniffs out relics buried for eternity with the determination of a bloodhound and the arrogance of the devil. Her brash nature and bold tongue keep the big angel on his toes, inflaming and infuriating him at the same time.

When danger strikes at the heart of the angels’ inner circle, Jude discovers he is faced with a task far greater than he has ever known. The light must be protected at all costs, in all of its forms. The ultimate evil has a plan, and with the most innocent among them at stake, Jude knows he’ll finally have to face his sins and meet the pain in his soul dead on. Coriander’s touch is the only thing that soothes, but is it enough to make him whole? Can she help him work through the pain long enough to remember his faith, or will he be forever…fallen?

Call me a bit of a masochist (or a lot of a masochist) but Jude’s inability to feel pleasure without pain in Lucius The Fallen immediately intrigued me. After getting swept up in the  the amazing amount of action, romance, and suspense Mrs. Wood managed to spin into the first book and finding out the second book was about Jude, I knew I had to read it. And I just knew I would love it.

I was right.

Let me back up though. So you meet Coriander in the first book. She’s Lucius’ loves sister and completely her opposite, but very much like Jude. Hard-headed is an understatement and I loved watching these two butt heads before FINALLY giving into the explosive chemistry percolating between them.

And let me tell you…Mrs. Wood knows what she’s doing when it comes to romance, chemistry and steaming up your reading spectacles. *fans self* No seriously. This is coming from someone that writes steamy scenes on a daily basis. I could go on and on…

But I digress. While yes, there is some very steamy, very sexy, and often times sweet scenes between these two, there is much more brewing behind the scenes that has been developing since the first book. Dark, dark forces that have bigger plans than the angels themselves yet know and you cannot help but get drawn in with the need to know more, to know where the story is going.

Will all the questions about those dark forces be answered in this book? Oh no, but it will certainly leave you satisfied all the while wanting more.

If you like reading about demons and angels (that don’t exactly act how I thought angels would, but I am sooooo okay with that), you should MOST DEFINITELY pick up the first two books The Fallen Series.
