Overview

He doesn't have to like his new mate, even if she is the only angel to accept him.

Bryant should've behaved himself. Now he's been ordered to find a mate. Easier said than done when a bloke like him looks the way he does in a realm full of angels. He'd rather be fighting the good fight in the human realm. But mating the ravishing female that claims him shouldn't be a hardship. If only her father wasn't the reason for his scars.

Perhaps mating the surly, scowling warrior wasn't Odessa's best idea. But she's committed, and he's...frustrating. Enticing. Carrying a grudge she knows nothing about. Yet when her boss winds up dead and she's attacked, he's there to save her.

Digging into the danger Odessa's facing uncovers an ambitious plot against the realm. Good thing Bryant's a persistent guy. He'll stick to Odessa's side and keep her safe, all so he can let her go in the end. Because one thing he's learned about the down-to-earth angel is that she deserves better than him.

Except Odessa doesn't want to be rid of the loyal warrior. But that's an argument for a day when someone's not trying to kill them.

I loved being in at the beginning of a new series and this the book one of a new series featuring Angels, demons and fallen angels. We have a fallen Angel who has thrown in his lot with demons and crooked angels in important positions. Our hero in this book are a scarred warrior Bryant vale and Odessa who sync with other for several reasons, but learn to full in love among the schemes and actions of our baddies. The world building gave me a firm picture in my head, and I felt connected to most of characters including some of the baddies. We are all not one or the other. What a great start to a new Paranormal Romance, with plenty of action. This was I got to finish book for me, as I wanted to find out if what happened. I will say this a complete story as far as Bryant and Odessa love story. To follow the world and larger picture I am happily waiting book two.

3.5 Stars So not having read anything by this particular author before I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Thankfully this was by far a positive experience and "Angel Fire" itself really was an imaginative endeavour with some pretty hefty word building. I did originally find that the staging here as it introduced this new series left me somewhat confused initially and as a consequence, it took me a while to get my head around the whole complicated infrastructure that we are introduced to here. But when I did manage to find my groove all was good with the world. So this was told from multiple POV's and really did an excellent job of laying the groundwork for future story development. I liked how the Angel's here were like everyday people with their own internal inadequacies and personality traits just like the humans they were tasked with serving. Found it super interesting how they were all being held to a higher standard when they were just as imperfect as their human charges were. Although I wasn't quite sure what to think about the black and white rule system these supposed higher beings abide by, the no grey or middle ground really seemed justly unfair to me. So Odessa I liked a lot she had some issues in her background that caused a lot of internal insecurities but she really tried to not let this dictate her future choices negatively. She knew what she wanted from the start and there was no artifice or malice where she was concerned. Bryant well I liked him but there were definitely times he needed a kick where the sun don't shine if you get my actual drift. His constant blowing hot and cold where Odessa is concerned really got a tad irritating I wanted to shout "Make up your mind man". The way he was always thinking of ways he could sever ties with Odessa for her sake, of course, was an insult to her inert character. Though I did like the fact that Bryant wasn't a player and was also scarred, growly and imperfect. I like my males to be somewhat flawed adds to there overall charm. So this was an intriguing start and I am interested in seeing where this story eventually goes. Especially in regards to the sister, I am hoping she gets her book alongside the pompous rigid Julien: to see him taken down a peg or two and eat some humble pie would be so fantastic. I voluntary reviewed a copy of "Angel Fire". All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.

‘Angel Fire’ is a new series by Marie Johnston about Angels, Demons and the Fallen. Fair warning though, these angels aren’t like any you have read about in the past. There might be some do-gooders in the bunch, but think humans, only with wings. There is nothing angelic about this bunch. They are as messed up as the humans they are supposed to watch over and protect. Bryant is a Warrior Angel with many scars and Odessa is a brainy analyst whose father is an Angel Senator. She and her sister Felicia survived a horrible attack when she was young and she needs protection from a Warrior. Instead of waiting for her destined mate, she chooses to sync with Bryant. Bryant is being pressured by his boss, Director Richter to sync so that when he goes into battle his mate will be able to heal his wounds. After meeting the gorgeous Odessa he agrees to the bond and things take off from there. There is a lot going on in this story with quite a bit of new world building seamlessly woven in. The bad Angels are truly bad, and there are even Demons thrown into the mix. I must admit that I found the Archmaster Demon Sandeen rather intriguing and wonder if he will have his own story in the future. I know he’s supposed to be an evil Demon, but any person who grieves the tragic loss of a pet just doesn’t seem all that evil to me no matter what bad things he was shown to have done. I also enjoyed Felicia and the Warrior Angel Jagger being thrown together and watching the sparks fly. I suspect their story will be next. As usual Marie doesn’t disappoint in how she writes her female heroines. Odessa is no weak female and she makes poor Bryant work for it when his insecurities keep sabotaging their relationship. The sex scenes are hot and the couple work well together while trying to solve a series of murders. There are some truly tragic moments that brought tears to my eyes in this story. Notably what happens to Director Leo Richter, as well as a few other innocent Angels and watching an angel become Fallen and losing his wings. I’m feeling rather ambivalent about Sierra after what she allows herself to be forced into doing. I think her story is going to be a hard one to tell since I’m not sure I will be able to forgive her for her cowardice allowing something awful to happen to one of the characters. Then there is Jameson Haddock. I must admit I had a terrible time with his last name. Every time I read it all I could think about was fish! LOL! Plus he is just a horrible Fallen Angel that just needs to be taken out by the Warriors. Since he seems to be the main villain for the series, I don’t think I will get my wish until the last book in the series most likely. So now I will just have to wait as patiently as possible for the next book in the series to be written. If you enjoy Marie’s other series, you won’t be disappointed with this one either.
