Review: Angel's Power
Angel's Power by Erin M. Leaf
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When darkness enters the angelic world once again, only those with powerful secrets of their own are able to stand against the oncoming destruction.
Suriel's angelic marks are imbibed with the powerful magic granted only to a sorcerer. He can speak to the wind and sees terrifying glimpses of the future. Despite his angelic status, he experiences flashes of power and disturbing premonitions that are unstable at best and overwhelming when at their worst. He has spent the last years hidden away, working tirelessly to gain control of his powers, but now feels compelled to travel to Castle Archangel and assist in the escalating fight against their Demon enemies. While his mother encourages him to look for a mate during his time away, Suriel would never risk the life of his most beloved by binding her to his treacherous powers.
Ariel serves as a trusted advisor to her brother, angel Alpha Gabriel. Her ability to maintain order amidst the haughty and self-serving attitudes displayed by the ancient angelic council is invaluable. No one suspects that her delicate body bears a disturbing secret--her angelic marks are slowly changing. Dark blues and faint silver hues now mottle the formerly luxurious brown marks. Since these changes are also mirrored in her wings, she fears the changes may be a sign of illness.
Suriel's unexpected arrival at Castle Archangel could not have come at a better time. There are disturbing shifts in the very foundation of the ancient castle's magic, but even more upsetting is the unexpected impact that Suriel and Ariel have on each other. As the demonic influences grow they are forced to work together to protect their people. The continued proximity only adds fuel to the simmering flames of their growing attraction. When tensions between the two finally reach a breaking point, their individual secrets are exposed and the explosive outcome is beyond their wildest imaginings.
ANGEL'S POWER, the second book in Erin M. Leaf's Angel Shifters series, is a fast paced and well written example of paranormal erotic romance at its best. With emotionally complex characters, an adventurous storyline and tantalizing sexual chemistry, this novella-length story engaged my attention from start to finish!
