Rowan is fierce and although she's terrified, she's determined to face her demons head on. She tried to get away from it all but the brutal murder of her beloved grandmother has her back home and ready to give all she has to end the family curse. Rowan's not perfect but she's honest and refuses to hide while others fight. What I found most appealing is that she wasn't afraid to go after what she wanted. She doesn't play games and I couldn't have been more thankful for that.
A member of the League of Guardians, a secret supernatural organization that keeps the balance between good and evil, Azaiel is sent along with 2 others to keep Rowan away from the demon lord at all costs. Azaiel is a fallen angel who spent countless years in hell after a fateful decision. Now, he's back on earth and given a chance to right his past wrongs. The attraction he feels for Rowan is unexpected and he feels undeserving of someone like Rowan. I can't point to anything specific I didn't like about Azaiel but he didn't have that extra something that made me swoon. He was a good hero that's in need of redemption, he just wasn't great.
Rowan took the lead in their relationship. She was the aggressor and Azaiel had to turn her down because nothing could come of their relationship. I liked this role reversal and that Rowan wasn't willing to take no for an answer.Read more ›
Azaiel is among the fallen. He has powers unlike any other supernatural creature but what's hunting Rowan James may be something he cannot defeat. Azaiel is a member of the League of Guardians and as a member he atones for his sins the only way he knows how by hunting those that spread evil. His trip to Salem was supposed to be about finding the leak among the Guardian ranks but Rowan James changes all that. She makes him want more and he's going to try his best to save her from the horrible fate that awaits her.
What happens when a witch and a fallen angel team up? Will they find love or the end of everything they know?
Juliana Stone's King of the Damned is the perfect paranormal treat. Rowan and Azaiel pull some powerful punches - the physical and emotional kind. I don't know when I've read about a couple that packed as much magical power as these two. I was mesmerized by Rowan's witchy ways and Azaiel's fallen strength. Ms. Stone throws her readers into the action at page one. Rowan and Azaiel meet each other and the enemy simultaneously and it makes for one spine-tingling fight. I was afraid to blink thinking I might actually miss some of this powerful meeting. There are a lot of cool characters featured in King of the Damned. I cannot wait to meet some of them in future books.Read more ›
Readers are first introduced to Azaiel in His Darkest Embrace, book #2 of the Jaguar Warriors series. It is in book #3 His Darkest Salvation where readers learn why no one in the League trusts him and many members have an animosity against him that is at times harsh. For the most part he is positive as he steps up to his new mission, finding out if someone inside the League has harmful intentions towards the members.
Rowan James is a witch, a very strong one from a line of powerful witches. She has returned to Salem to find that her grandmother has been brutally murdered and that the family curse is nipping at her heels in a way it never has before. She also finds Azaiel, a nonhuman man who claims to be a friend of her grandmother Cara's. Rowan has gotten used to the life of a loner and now she has obligated herself to avenge her grandmother's death and to rid her family of their curse once and for all.
Rowan and Azaiel together... oh my, lot of hotness there, the fact that my Kindle did not short out and melt is surprising. Kudos to Juliana on the heat factor with this book, it is sizzling. Azaiel is this strong, powerful, immortal Seraphim. He is oblivious to all pop culture references and many colloquialisms. He also has no clue he sexy and extremely easy on the eyes. Rowan plays with him about this. It makes them such a fun couple to read.Read more ›
