Synopsis borrowed from Goodreads:

Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

Darkfallen's thoughts:
Holy swoon worthiness!!!

Anna and Kaiden can't be together. Luckily Anna is spending most of her time trying to gather allies to fulfill the prophecy she was born to do. But taking down evil isn't easy. Especially when your a Neph daughter. So she plays the party girl and pretends to "work" when she has to. But she can only stay away for Kai for so long before they just can't stay away anymore.

I LOVED this book!!! With Anna traveling the world to recruit new Nephs there isn't a shortage on action and drama. But most of all I just loved all the stolen moments between Anna and Kai. Anna is so sweet to his brash, but you can tell that he's doing it just to keep her away. My heart broke for them both. I wish so bad that they were allowed to be together. It's just not FAIR!! *stomps foot like a two year old*

And then you have all the supporting characters playing a bigger roll in book two. I loved Blake and his funny ways. He had me cracking up more than once. And Kope...poor, poor Kope. My heart broke for him to. But I'm sensing there is hope for him around the corner! Oh please let there be hope...

So let me say that I was afraid to start this series. Ever since the Fallen series by Lauren Kate stole my heart than let me down I thought for sure that I was done with angels all together...until now! I can't tell you enough how much I love the first two books in this series and I can't wait for book three!

If you haven't picked up this series yet please PLEASE do! You'll thank me later *winks*
