Rapture

Fallen Angels, #4

This is the fourth installment of Ms. Ward's Fallen Angles series. Ms. Ward brings new life into the good vs. evil story arc. Jim is an angle trying to lead the lost souls on the path of right while Devina is a demon who tries to tempt the soul to evil. Whoever gets the soul, it is counted as a win. They have seven chances to win the lost soul. This last soul fell to evil because Devina did what demons do, she cheated. So now the last soul gets a chance for a do-over. Will he make the right choices the second time around or make the same mistakes over again? I love this series from Ms. Ward and can't wait for the next one to come out. This is the second series from this author that I follow.

Book Blurb for Rapture

Out of the wickedly inventive imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward comes a world where sin and salvation collide in a battle for the future of mankind—where a cynical fallen angel struggles against the seven deadly sins and a demon’s lure over seven chosen souls…

Mels Carmichael, reporter for the Caldwell Courier Journal, gets the shock of her life when a man stumbles in front of her car outside the local cemetery. After the accident, his amnesia is just the kind of mystery she likes to solve, but she soon discovers they’re in over their heads with his past. Over their heads with passion, too...

As shadows walk the line between reality and another realm, and her lover’s memory begins to come back, the two of them learn that nothing is truly dead and buried. Especially when you’re trapped in a no holds barred war between angels and demons. With a soul on the line, and Mels’s heart at risk, what in Heaven—or in Hell—will it take to save them both?
