Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from RBTL World of Books Blog Tours and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


Thou shall not kill.
Archangel Raziel had no choice. He would break the Infinite’s commandment again to save his lover, Uriel, from a demon’s talons. Yet even the Infinite’s most trusted archangel cannot avoid punishment. Forced to go through the Cleansing, Raziel loses his memories and is renamed Izar, a Protector sworn to kill for the angels.
Years later, Izar is summoned to work alongside Uriel to capture a killer. Izar is shocked when his bloodlust spikes hot for the archangel. But a relationship between Protectors and angels is forbidden. As they rush to find the killer, their passion plays into the demon’s plan. Izar will have to choose between life and death if he is to save Uriel again.

His eyes widened, and he stepped back as the blond angel turned to him. Oh the Infinite almighty…his cock leaped, spreading a shockwave throughout his lower half.
Golden waves of hair and milky skin, a white robe draped seductively around a tall, slender body, eyes bluer than any sky Izar had ever witnessed. The sight of the archangel caused a loss of equilibrium.
The archangel’s perfect brows lifted slightly at Izar’s feeble attempt to appear in control. Oddly, the angel seemed familiar, but they had never spoken or been in the same room together. Izar would have remembered that face. He’d seen the prince of the Cherubim from a distance, but never this close, this personal, this…distracting.
The quicksilver lust on seeing this vision shocked him. He wasn’t attracted to forbidden fruit. He didn’t need the trouble. He was a practical man, especially when it came to where he put his dick. Protectors were forbidden to lay with angels, except for the Sanctuary’s healers.
Turning away from the seductive vision, he drew in a breath. He should have attended the Sanctuary for relief before coming here. His physical reaction to this archangel confirmed the danger of waiting too long to eradicate his sexual lust. He’d already pushed his limits, and if he didn’t get to the temple, he’d fall ill, or worse, lose control of his actions.

My Thoughts:

Uriel starts our story off with some personal pain.  Raziel shows what he will endure for someone he loves.  Izar has an interesting piece of jewelry that makes me jealous – you’ll have to read the book if you want to find out what it is. 

If you’re a fan of the paranormal or of fantasy, and you don’t mind a M/M couple, you might find this book one to add to your TBR list.  It also has sexual content.  Redemption shows how creative our authors are – it’s a great reminder as to why I’m a reader.  Heavenly beings have more to them then just protecting us poor humans.

The most maddening thing was that housework kept interrupting my reading experience.  But it wasn’t long before I was back to reading.  I can picture taking this book to a serene place with lots of nature and either a lake or ocean for my backdrop.  Our characters show what they must endure in order to do the job that they have been given.  For me, the authors gave the readers a happy ending that left no suspense for the next book – it stands on its own.  But if you really liked, or loved, the book then you will wait in anticipation until the next book comes out.
