WARRIOR OF HEAVEN

Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels-and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell-he's agreed to go where no angel has ever gone before...to steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself.

ANGEL OF HELL

Harvester is one of the Fallen, a once-heroic angel who sacrificed her wings to work as an undercover agent in hell. But now her cover has been blown, and she's been doomed to an eternity of agonizing torture. Even if Reaver can snatch her away from Satan's lair, even if they can fight their way out of the underworld's darkest depths, there is one thing Harvester can never escape-her newfound thirst for an angel's blood...

I was so excited to get to Reaver. All the revelations of his relationships in the previous Lords of Deliverance books had me so interested on how things were going to play out. I knew he couldn’t let things with Harvester go,and I was so happy that he made the decisions he did, despite how she initially treated him.

I have always loved Harvester. She was such a contradictory character throughout the series. She’d do the evil expected of her, but then she’d show this remorseful, sad side of her. She hated that side, but it always made you wonder how her story was going to play out. What her end game really was. That is what made me so eager for this book!

Unfortunately, the narration made this book very hard to enjoy. I almost turned it off a few times and just read the story. I really should have done that. I found the narration grating and distracting which really disappointed me. I would recommend anyone reading this series to either do the physical or ebook for this installment. I’m a little OCD about having all my series in one format, which was why I just couldn’t stop the audio and pick up the ebook. But I would definitely recommend people read it versus listen.

My rating for this book is for the story only and does not include my review of the narration.
