Wicked Nights is Gena Showalter’s new Angel series and I must say that this is Gena at her best! She continues to show her readers why she is one of the best paranormal romance writers of all time. Wicked Nights manages to elicit every emotion humanly possible from its readers as we take the ride of our lives when the unrelenting angel Zacheral meets the spirited survivor Annabelle and they journey through some pretty Wicked Nights.
Annabelle is the epitome of what every heroine should be. Strong, fierce and independent; yet caring, loving, and willing to sacrifice herself for those she loves. After a demon marks her and kills her family, Annabelle must constantly fight to survive. She has faced evil, but nothing prepares her for what she experiences when she meets Zacheral. She has suffered and fought all her life, but when she meets the hardened angel, she risks the one thing she has left- her heart.
Zacharel is one big contradiction. An angel only concerned about killing demons, even if that means taking a human life. A heart that is cold and hardened by the past, he cannot understand emotions or the value of humans…until he meets Annabelle. She has been through hell on earth, but still manages to laugh, smile and appreciate life. She is courageous and strong, yet warm and honest. Slowly, the ice around his heart turns to a burning flame as he realizes that he, the angel, is not the savior, but the one who is in need of salvation. Salvation found in Annabelle.
With their heart on the line, they must bring together an unruly angel army and track down the demon that has marked Annabelle before it is too late. Will they be able to stop the demon in time or will they lose the ones they love the most in the fight between good vs. evil.
This is an absolute must read! This is just the first book in the series and I am hooked.
We first met Zachereal in the Lords of the Underworld, and a few of those Lords and their heroines make a guest appearance as an added treat. The weaving of the two worlds is amazing. The warriors in Zacheral’s army are all so unique, complex and interesting that you want to pull back the layers to find out more about them. Not to worry, the series has just started and we will get more one on one time with each of the angels and I cannot wait. This book is explosive and I could not put it down. The one complaint that I have is to wait for book 2. Please write fast Gena!!
