This is 'Angel Shifters, book 1. I am waiting for book 2 to come out. I did like "Angels Honor". It was a little slow at the beginning but when it did get moving, it got moving. The subject of angels and love stories hasn't really been a story I've picked up before but this one was good. The attraction between Raphael and Gabriel was swift and engaging for the reader. The legends of the storyline kept it new and fresh. I will gladly recommend this one for a good read.
Raphael didn't know when he came to study that he would find his mate and be Omega to the new Alpha and it would bring about a world of change for his people.
But when he meets Gabriel and finds his mate, everything seems right.
Gabriel, for his part, knew something was going to happen when his tattoos turned black--the sign that he was a true Alpha and that he would be taking over the leading of his people. His Omega turns out to be a male, though, and Gabriel finds that that is good for him because the heat and intensity between the two men helps bring about the change that is needed to save his people.
Raphael had no idea what he was getting into when he went to Castle Archangel to study the People’s oral history. He didn’t expect his wings to suddenly change from brown to the purest white—the mark of an Omega, the destined mate of the Alpha. There has never been a male Omega before, not in all the millennia angels have flown the skies of Earth. However, when Raphael meets ebony-winged Gabriel, the true leader of the People, he knows he wants this man more than anything. Change is not always bad.
When Gabriel’s wings suddenly turn to startling ebony, he must deal with the knowledge that he is an Alpha, a leader of the angels. When he discovers that his destined mate is a man, he must accept that being Alpha of the People means accepting more than he’d expected. When their current leader challenges him, accusing Gabriel of committing one of the People’s most dishonorable crimes, Gabriel must fight: for his honor, for his mate, and for the survival of the angels.
