It took only four months to bring the angels to their knees…
With a virus ravaging the fallen angels on earth, mankind’s symbol of love and hope is at risk of extinction.
Centuries ago, a group of angelic warriors known as The Fallen risked everything to save themselves and carve a future for their kind. Hope slips away as The Fallen and their kin are cut down by an ancient menace, LaMorte Nera—and no one saw it coming.
Only one immortal can save them, and only one mortal can stand in his way…
When Nephilim warrior Killian St. James sets out on a quest to find a cure, he and his blade-brothers discover nineteen-year-old Aubrey Carter—a human with a past as dark as it is mysterious—cowering in an abandoned house in the heart of Memphis, Tennessee.
The corrupted races are chasing her, and Killian is determined to find out why…
But neither he nor Aubrey are prepared for their attraction to one another, or for the frightening truths lurking in the shadows. The painful childhood memories Aubrey has buried hold precious answers. Answers that threaten to tear Killian’s world apart.
With her life hanging in the balance, Killian must choose between the future of The Fallen, and the human girl he’s pledged to protect.
Demons are rising, and this time they plan to win the war for dominion once and for all.
Stricken’ is the first book in an exciting urban fantasy romance series ‘The War Scrolls’, with fallen angels, demons, humans ,shifters, vampires and hybrids. This fast paced story follows Aubrey, more than the human girl she first appears to be. Her father and brother are dead and she is on the run from enemies too numerous to count. Killian is half human and half fallen Angel. He protects Aubrey but does he also have an agenda she knows nothing about?
The relationship that develops between the Aubrey and Killian makes them both risk everything to keep the other safe but will it also risk the future of humanity? There is acute sensual tension between the two as they fight to survive and find out how to stop the deadly virus. Is their attraction deeper than their human sides bonding?
The world building in this story is all important and skilfully done. You feel part of this urban hell and look for danger every time you turn a page. The characters are vivid and realistic, even though their skills are supernatural.
There is an interesting dynamic between Dom and Killian as they both vie for Aubrey’s attention against a background of war, danger and a deadly virus that threatens their existence and ultimately the humans they protect. Soul mates, forbidden love and secrets from the past that have the power to destroy their future
Mystery, deceit and suspense, vivid imagery and great fight scenes, enrich the plot and make this an exciting read.
The ending puts you on the edge of your seat and answers the questions about Aubrey and Killian. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
