Blurb: When falling in love means risking everything, an angel must decide if losing his heart is worth it.
Lam is an Agnus Dei—or a messenger angel—who deals with mortals and the Four Horsemen. He’s helped them to find love and become mortal again, but he can’t seem to figure out his own relationship. Of course, it would be so much easier if he hadn’t fallen for Lucifer Daystar, the most infamous angel out there.
Lucifer Daystar has loved Lam since the moment he saw him. They’ve hidden their relationship since Lam isn’t supposed to fraternize with Day. He wishes things could be different, but he won’t risk Lam getting into trouble for being with him. Then one day Lam disappears and Day must search the world to find him.
By the time Day rescues him, will Lam have decided that loving a fallen angel isn’t worth the pain?
Review: This is the 5th book in the series and I haven’t read the others (but I’m going to now!). I think it’d have made a bit of a difference (if I’d read the others) because I’d know the secondary characters. It sounds as though Lam and Day had a bit to do with helping some of the other couples so it would have given me more background – but… I wasn’t lost and the book felt complete without having read the others.
Lucifer is who you’d expect: a fallen angel, banished to the mortal realm for sins against Heaven. Lam is an angel of Heaven who has fallen in love with Lucifer, aka Day, and Lam is also an angel who has been instrumental in helping the other horsemen find their mortality again after falling in love with humans.
Most of the back story is given in flash-backs so we see how it was when Lam and Day met and other bits from their past. We find Lam and Day together again after Lam has also been stripped of his wings for being with Day.
I think that for fans of the series, this will tie up some loose ends and give a lovely sense of closure. There is some tension and drama surrounding Lam’s fall and a certain amount of finality to the series with the four horsemen and Lam all now being settled in on Earth with their respective lovers/spouses.
I enjoyed reading this (enough so that I want to go back and catch up on the previous books!) and I think the premise is intriguing. There’s a bit of magic and mystery, some drama and suspense, and lots of love and passion.
Highly recommended to fans of “angel” stories and fans of the paranormal genre.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
