Despite not loving this book, I enjoyed getting to follow a female angel this time around. Well…a natural born angel, I mean. It aided the romance development in such a short story, I know, but I was looking forward to seeing a female version of a toned down Raphael.

Noel fell pretty easily for a guy who had the issues that he did, but I enjoyed watching the fall. I felt that he was the more emotionally healthy of the pair, despite the intimacy issues he struggled with.

Both Nimra and Noel were dominant personalities, but when they came together they were surprisingly sweet. A woman is kidnapped into a world divided by a superhuman civil war.

I am shocked-- shocked, I say! I did not like it at all when I began reading it. I was deeply uncomfortable with the set up and the dynamic between Lucas and Karina.

Karina was in the wrong place at the wrong time and ended up being mortally wounded. This bargain is crap, really.

He can do whatever he wants to her. She was a victim of circumstance. The House of Daryon had stripped every shred of independence from her.

She depended on Lucas for everything: Any relaxation of the rules became a kindness on his part. A small thing, like a toothbrush, seemed like some great favor.

Lucas strongly reminded me of a serial killer and I got the heebie-jeebies when I realized just how easy it was for him to contemplate raping Karina.

So why did I like this story so much? But, man, it sucked me in. Accepting a position in a secluded and whispered-about mansion, a woman soon discovers the source of its mystery: I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed the world, despite being a little confused by the connection between God and the angels and the humans.

Why exactly are angels living with the humans? I get that they need to mate with them to produce more angels, but are they angels -angels?

A little confused about that. I really, really enjoyed watching the bond develop between Moriah and Corban. They both initially are drawn to each other for complicated reasons—Moriah from a desire to tempt fate, and Corban from a reluctant interest in something other than his depression.

Soon they find themselves growing closer. Corban comes to depend upon Moriah for her aid in helping him overcome his injury, but you can also see the subtle hints that he is beginning to care from her.

She is unceasingly practical and it was fun watching her roll her eyes at herself over falling for an angel. Especially because she has such a bad opinion of angel-seekers!

This was the most emotionally satisfying story of the bunch for me, although I do wish the romance had been expanded more and that the ending had been more leisurely.

Regardless, I plan to check out this series to see how I like a full length novel by her. Learning about her past with Marc made me wince in sympathy for her--Ouch!

I thought her present behavior toward him was a little uneven, though. She confused me with her assertive sexual advances while still being hesitant about her feelings.

I think Brook excels at twisting expectations and playing with the line between right and wrong and good and evil, and this was no exception. Meljean Brook and Sharon Shinn where new to me authors.

I liked both Nimra the Angel and Noel the Vampire. Both of them needed healing in different ways and they come to find what they need in each other.

It was very interesting and the world is vast. The heroine, she is thrown into a difficult situation and she coupes with it rather well, maybe to well.

I enjoyed all the characters introduced. I just felt we needed more. We barely scratch the surface of this new world and the characters. Origins is an intense, stressful, and fast-paced adventure.

Nocturne Samaria by Sharon Shinn Rated 3. I liked the set up and characters. We have a sexy brooding angel and a daughter of an angel who is human. The romance for our leads, Corban and Moriah, blooms over time, which was nice to read.

The slow burn and banter between the two made the romance believable. Both where looking for something and they found it in each other.

Nocturne is a sweet slow burn romance. Ascension The Guardians 7. Marc and Radha are both Guardians, which means they are warriors given angelic powers to fight demons.

They end up working together to find the demon causing problems as well as who is killing supernaturals and humans. I did have trouble connecting to both Marc and Radha.

It could be because they had a past or that this novella took place farthing in the series. Ascension has a little mystery, drama, and whole lot of sexual tension.

All and all this anthology was ok! I sometimes find new authors in anthologies to try out. Origins by Ilona Andrews.

I rate the audible version 5 stars Yes, I would recommend this anthology. I rate this 4 solid "Angel's Wolf by Nalini Singh. I rate this 4 solid stars.

Jan 23, Susana rated it really liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

To view it, click here. Although i adore Nalini Singh "world" of the "guild-hunters", for me "Angel's Wolf" had the same problem of Sara's and Deacon story in "Must Love hellhounds" anthology.

And that is, the length of the story. Or in both cases the reduced length of the stories. Nalini Singh's characters are so complex and bigger than life, that a short story for me is insuficient.

I felt that the relationship between these two complex characters were rushed. So that's the only negative thing that i have to say abou Although i adore Nalini Singh "world" of the "guild-hunters", for me "Angel's Wolf" had the same problem of Sara's and Deacon story in "Must Love hellhounds" anthology.

So that's the only negative thing that i have to say about this story. I would have liked to read more. To really apreciate Nimra's and Noel story, i would have to read it in a full length book.

I liked "Alphas" by Ilona Andrews. It was something diferent of what i am used. It takes courage to portrait a male character "Lucas" that basically needs to "chew" on the flesh of the female character "Karina" who is a "donnor", someone whose genetics counteract the poisoning that takes place in Lucas body when he undergoes a change.

It was a good story. And then comes "Nocturne" by Sharon Shinn. It was the first time that i've read a story by this author Cant believe that i've never read anything by this author!

Moriah and Corban were perfect: Corban is this sad angel who after losing his sight loses interest in life. Moriah hasn't had an easy life, and she would be the last person to feel sorry for an angel or for his problems.

Neverthless she has a tendency to get into troubles Oct 19, Hirondelle rated it liked it Shelves: This is sort of being currently read - I wanted to read the Sharon Shinn story, got straight to it, and now not sure if I will read the rest.

I want to return the book to owner, so trying to make the effort to read the rest of the stories fast, but OTOH I am stuck on the second story Second i tried to read.

I can not remember when was the last time I read one anthology straight cover to cover by their own order. The Sharon Shinn story is probably not a good introduction to her Samaria world.

It This is sort of being currently read - I wanted to read the Sharon Shinn story, got straight to it, and now not sure if I will read the rest.

It is a spin-off story, standalone-ish and I thought it was, at the same time, lovely and somewhat dull. I liked the ending paragraph very much as well.

Not that the stories were bad, just that urban fantasy really was not my thing, even in its hey-day. Jul 28, Lady Jaye rated it really liked it Shelves: This is one of my favorite anthologies till date, as it contains 3 of my very favorite authors.

Origins, by Ilona Andrews - 5 stars I loved this one. Skill and versatility from two authors I adore. The writing is so different from the typical Ilona Andrews voice and I am excited.

I am excited for a new series fingers crossed , hopefully starring Lucas and Karina. Nocturne, by Sharon Shinn - 5 stars My favorite.

Sharon Shinn writes with elegance and an understated beauty that drags you una This is one of my favorite anthologies till date, as it contains 3 of my very favorite authors.

Sharon Shinn writes with elegance and an understated beauty that drags you unawares into her stories. My favorite parts of the story was the legacy Rachel and Gabriel left Samaria, and any mentions of them made me smile.

Angel's Wolf, by Nalini Singh - 4 stars Enjoyable story. Ascension, by Meljean Brook - 2 stars Now I am not familiar with Meljean's Guardians series, so it could be why i had such a problem getting into it.

It was my least favorite story, and the one I thought was least well-written. I didn't enjoy either the hero or heroine, and while I felt their lust, i felt nothing else for them.

Feb 25, Patricia rated it really liked it Shelves: Proper review to come! Hadn't expected to like her writing and when I did.. The story by Nalini Singh wasn't as good as I hoped for, 3 stars, probably.

Meljean Brook's story was interesting. The whole Ascension-thing and the stuff the protagonsits said about the Guardians.. But I wasn't emotionally involved with them whatsoever, so I'd probably give this story 3.

Ilona Andrews' story gets 4. And Sharon Shinn's story made me very curious, although it probably wouldn't get more than Kate going Hulk was awesome though.

Didn't read the other stories Recommended to Anzu by: Aly is so frigging bored. To love one is to nurture softness within your own heart.

I'm not a fan of shorts but this book had one in a series I'm currently reading so I figured what the heck.

I hope to see more of Noel and Nimra. I hated, hated, hated Lucas and felt Karina was a wet dishrag. I won't be continuing this series. Nocturn - Sharon S I'm not a fan of shorts but this book had one in a series I'm currently reading so I figured what the heck.

This gave me a clue as to it's content so I will be moving it up higher on my TBR and getting through the entire series sooner rather than later.

I read Demon Angel 1 and disliked it but maybe I'll give this series a shot. Feb 23, Paulina rated it really liked it. Finally read the entire anthology I'd previously only read Singh's and Andrews' short stories.

In a rare event for me, I would actually give each of the four short stories 4 stars. And this is with not knowing the other two series which have now been added to my TBR list.

I definitely recommend this anthology. This review was posted at Under The Covers This book is one of the few anthologies that I've read in which I've actually liked every story.

Some definitely more than others, but they are all good! I'll review them individually. Angel's Wolf by Nalini Singh - 4. At first he thought he was being cast out because of his weakness.

He is This review was posted at Under The Covers This book is one of the few anthologies that I've read in which I've actually liked every story.

He is still dealing with the emotional aftermath of his past, he feels almost dead inside. But then he realizes Raphael sent him here to help and protect Nimra.

Someone close to her wants her dead. It's his job to make sure they don't succeed and to figure out who is responsible.

But Nimra somehow manages to wake him from the state he's been in. The story, as always, is amazing. Nalini Singh can weave an intricate web perfectly.

Even for a short story there's so much going on it felt like a complete story. All the characters were pretty well developed, the relationships between all of them was very real, and the chemistry between Noel and Nimra was amazing.

Origins - 4 Stars We are introduced to a brand new world where there's a long going on, a bit sci-fi, with a splash of paranormal. A group of genetically modified species, "people" with special abilities, separate realities or levels or worlds.

I'm still a bit confused as to how everything works and what everything means, but it usually takes me a while to understand an Andrews world.

Seems like the beginning to a really interesting series. A lot of action, some sexual tension. Kate, along with her daughter and a group of kids on a field trip make the wrong pit stop for bathroom and stumble upon a group of supernatural creatures.

She's taken as a slave for Lucas, part man part beast. He needs to feed on her regularly to fight the venom in his own body. There's a bit of Stockholm Syndrome going on, which I didn't necessarily like, but Lucas actually likes Kate, and even though he wants her, he respects her.

I am very curious to see where this story will go from here. Nocturne by Sharon Shinn - 3. But in general I actually enjoyed this story and I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

A bit of angel politics at work, one sexy, brooding and blind angel; the daughter of an angel with a human who has been running away from angels for over 4 years.

Corban was blinded by lightning and has been living secluded from everyone. Until Moriah shows up, and actually stands up for herself, confronts him about not facing his demons, and helps him to fly again.

There was one thing mentioned in this story which was a bit of a spoiler for me has to do with Michael! And I mean, how could you NOT like a book about two guardians, one hot male who has been in love with the same girl since his training days and the guardian he's in love with has indigo blue skin, dark black hair to her butt, gold claws and dresses with scarfs tied around her body.

I thought she was pretty smoking hot! LOL Marc is in the middle of nowhere Illinois investigating what might be a demon wreaking havoc in the town.

He hasn't spoken to Radha for years, and all of a sudden she shows up and offers to help him. I liked that they didn't beat around the bush with their feelings for each other.

After years of miscommunication, they laid out all their issues and cleared any misunderstandings. Sparks were flying right away.

Dec 30, Kathy Kindle-aholic rated it really liked it Shelves: I'm not caught up on the ones that are part of a series, but I thought that the stories were good standalones, and I wasn't lost at all.

There might have been some slightly spoilerish things that didn't bother me I still plan on reading the series but might bother some folks who must read things in order.

I have read and enjoyed every one of these authors, although I haven't read as much of Shinn's 4. I have read and enjoyed every one of these authors, although I haven't read as much of Shinn's work as I want - will have to fix that this year.

There is a definite trend here of characters that have been broken and need mending. There is romance, and a little steam, but the focus was more on the building of the relationships.

If you are a reader that dislikes novellas or romance, you probably shouldn't get this one as it has both. Angel's Wolf Guild Hunter 4. Nimra has a pretty scary power, but also cares deeply for the few she allows to get close to her.

Noel is recovering from a traumatic assault. He has been sent to Nimra after an attempt on her life. The story for me was more about 2 wounded people finding each other and recovering together, and the solution to the mystery made sense as well I'd just expected more fighting.

I still liked it, and I'm looking forward to reading more Guild Hunters. I've previously read book 1 and some novellas, so the world wasn't brand new to me.

Origins by Ilona Andrews Lots of action in the one by Andrews. It is not a Kate story, not an Edge story, it's its own thing. The world was cool that is consistent with Andrews other works.

Not as funny as the other series, though, so if you need the comedic asides you might find them mising here. I do hope there will be more stories set in this world.

Darker, edgier, more than a little twisted, but I liked it. I think it was just twisted enough to stay on this side of the line where I was satisifed with the ending and still enjoyed reading about the characters.

I really liked the end. I'd been wondering where the "angel" would come into play. Nocturne Samaria series by Sharon Shinn I had not even heard of this series before reading this novella, but I will be checking it out.

Set in a world ruled by angels, the intermediaries for the god Jovah, the story takes place in an out of the way school as far from the rest of civilization as possible.

Moriah is new to the school. Adventurous, this is the latest in a long string of places she has run from. I liked her a lot.

She was sneaky, calculating, strong, resourceful - it was not hard to believe that she was a survivior. Corban is a blind angel in hiding at the foreboding house on the hill.

The two strike up a strange relationship that is really beneficial to both. I enjoyed their verbal sparring and that each gave as good as they got.

Not much action in this one. Here we have 2 Guardians who are nursing old wounds they gave each other years and years before. Every time my life makes a wrong turn, I have the same reoccurring dream.

The concrete feels rough and cold under me. Around me a huge warehouse stretches. Darkness hides its walls, puddling in the corners.

Directly above me a metal lamp is hanging on a chain. I sit in a circle of light, exposed. Just beyond the light a thing watches me from the gloom.

It walks on all fours, and its curved black claws scratch the concrete. It steps closer to the light, and I see its face.

Its eyes are black and angry, and its mouth is a slash across its face filled with long needle-sharp teeth. Its lips are black and its teeth are yellow, and looking at them makes me shiver.

Hearing its hoarse voice is like having a bucket of iced water dumped on me. There is another monster in the warehouse with me.

It just sits in the darkness and watches. The bedroom was dark, except for the green light from the digital clock. I struggled to catch my breath.

My heart was beating so fast, it hurt. I strained, listening for small noises. I was sixteen years old. I would be getting my license as soon as I finished the driving school.

I felt about with my feet under the blanket, looking for the familiar weight. Usually Marbles, my big brown torbie cat, slept at the edge of my bed.

He has been sent to Nimra after an attempt on her life. The story for me was more about 2 wounded people finding each other and recovering together, and the solution to the mystery made sense as well I'd just expected more fighting.

I still liked it, and I'm looking forward to reading more Guild Hunters. I've previously read book 1 and some novellas, so the world wasn't brand new to me.

Origins by Ilona Andrews Lots of action in the one by Andrews. It is not a Kate story, not an Edge story, it's its own thing.

The world was cool that is consistent with Andrews other works. Not as funny as the other series, though, so if you need the comedic asides you might find them mising here.

I do hope there will be more stories set in this world. Darker, edgier, more than a little twisted, but I liked it. I think it was just twisted enough to stay on this side of the line where I was satisifed with the ending and still enjoyed reading about the characters.

I really liked the end. I'd been wondering where the "angel" would come into play. Nocturne Samaria series by Sharon Shinn I had not even heard of this series before reading this novella, but I will be checking it out.

Set in a world ruled by angels, the intermediaries for the god Jovah, the story takes place in an out of the way school as far from the rest of civilization as possible.

Moriah is new to the school. Adventurous, this is the latest in a long string of places she has run from.

I liked her a lot. She was sneaky, calculating, strong, resourceful - it was not hard to believe that she was a survivior. Corban is a blind angel in hiding at the foreboding house on the hill.

The two strike up a strange relationship that is really beneficial to both. I enjoyed their verbal sparring and that each gave as good as they got.

Not much action in this one. Here we have 2 Guardians who are nursing old wounds they gave each other years and years before.

The initial issue was a big miscommunication, but I'm glad that they didn't spend all of the story focused on the miscommunication. There is also a problem with someone killing vampires, a potential demon to sniff out, and teens getting in over their heads.

I really liked Marc's and Radha's powers, how they worked together. There was some action in the story, especially at the end. I haven't started this series yet, although I have read a novella set in this world, so it wasn't completely new to me.

It does make me want to dig more into this world. View all 7 comments. May 29, Kate rated it liked it. Angels of Darkness is actually four novellas, which I will review individually.

They are probably best called paranormal romances. Nocturne, by Sharon Shinn, is quite good, if predictable. A woman with a bit of a troubled past and a scathing tongue meets a hurt and despairing angel at a lonely manor.

If you've read any Sharon Shinn, you'll know what's going to happen, but in a good way, because the story is comfortably predictable like chocolate.

I didn't care much for Ascension, by Meljea Angels of Darkness is actually four novellas, which I will review individually. I didn't care much for Ascension, by Meljean Brook, because the story revolves around two Guardians who are trying to protect humans from demons, but spend their time seducing each other instead of searching for the demon who is destroying a small town.

They seem more concerned with their romance. Really not my cup of tea. Angel's Wolf, by Nalini Singh, was about the relationship between a vampire and an angel.

The vampire is frequently compared to a wolf, and is therefore wild, uncontrollable, and jealous. I prefer civilized men.

I really, really hated Alphas: I will sum it up. But she is a slave, and Lucas tells her when to get up, when to shower, and is disturbingly possessive.

He stops short of raping her, but only barely, and only because she doesn't have to be tied down for him to drink her blood he would have raped her in that case.

The disturbing part, though, is that Karina falls in love with Lucas a joke is even made about Stockholm syndrome. She has the chance to leave, but doesn't.

Karina's relationship with Lucas is portrayed positively, as though his physical strength and the fact that they are in a war justifies his possessiveness, violence, and fight for dominance.

I prefer men who are civilized. Strong does not mean possessive or dominating. Oct 04, Alyssa Ricks rated it really liked it. Read as part of the Angels of Darkness anthology Merged review: Angel's Wolf Singh 4 stars.

Mom lay under her covers, her dark hair spread on the pillow. I could hear her breathe. The twins had spread the blanket out. We lay down, me and Trinity next to each other, Dan a little way apart.

I spread the spare blanket over us. As long as he was around, nothing would hurt us. But dad was gone, and Emily was off, doing her own thing.

It was just the four of us, me, twins, and mom. Maybe the twins were wrong this time. Maybe nothing bad would happen.

Skip to primary navigation Skip to content Skip to footer You are here: It walks left, then right. I know what it wants. When I speak, my voice comes out tiny.

It wants to come closer, but the light holds it at bay. I craned my neck, trying to look at the far end of my bed.

A short shadow stood in my doorway. Do you want to get killed? The second shadow joined my brother.

Now both of the twins were accounted for. We looked at each other. Now I was by myself.
