Editorial Reviews

Review

"Tricia Skinner creates an extraordinary urban fantasy world of where blood is not always thicker than water." - Fresh Fiction

"The author tugged this reader's emotional strings - the relationships both romantic and hereditary were very dynamic. The tension ebbed and flowed throughout the story. Every page reflected true realistic emotions between Cain and Katie - tenderness, trust, acceptance, intimacy, and love." - Books, Books, and More Books

"When the villain is just as sexy and powerful as the hero, you know you've found a great book." - Lore Lush Books

"ANGEL KIN weaves a paranormal world with angel mythology to create one of the most engrossing stories I've read in a while. With Angels, Nephilim and Renegade Angels in a battle, things quickly get exciting." - Romancing the Dark Side 

"Tricia Skinner is a HOT new author that has stolen my heart and will be on my "order now" list for here on out! Angel Kin had everything I love in a Paranormal Romance and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book!" - Diaries of 2 Thick Chicks

The opening scene in Tricia Skinner’s new ANGEL ASSASSIN series is as disturbing as it is good, in that oh my god I NEED to know more kind of way. Katie’s race to stay alive starts on page one, and doesn’t let up until the epilogue, and even then it’s clear that she’s still not entirely safe. ANGEL KIN is a near seamless blend of world-building, character development, and plot threads with its unique celestial mythology, cornucopia of supernaturals, and gripping story. This book was a borderline 5-star read for me, but the change in pacing towards the end caused me to have to reel back my enthusiasm a notch, and give it a solid 4 instead.

My interest for angel novels within the paranormal genre has slowly waned over the years because it’s been my experience that there’s no grey area when it comes to these supes. They usually fall into one of two categories: overly religious and preachy, or straight-up badass with a dash of celestial on the side. The cover and blurb lead me to expect the latter, and much to my relief, that’s exactly what ANGEL KIN delivers! Skinner’s lore is detailed and original without being over-the-top complicated, and I loved learning about the differences between The Renegades and The Bound—not to mention all of the other fascinating supernaturals that live in the ANGEL ASSASSIN universe. There’s even a vampire gang called the Black Fangs!

I enjoyed the group dynamics within The Bound Ones; each member’s personality is vastly different, and they have distinctive abilities to match. My only complaint in this department was that I wish we’d seen more of Tanis, Jarrid, Kas and Nesty. However, after taking a peek at the author’s work-in-progress page, I think it’s safe to assume that each installment will revolve around one of Cain’s crew.

Whoa. The beginning of Angel Kin immediately drew me into this story. It was a great way to introduce our heroine, Katie, and the crux of the plot. I'm a sucker for angel stories, so I was drawn into this new world wondering what Heaven and Hell were up to.

Katie is the only girl in her firefighting family and a black sheep by her own admission. She got in trouble for having sticky fingers. But I quite enjoyed that Skinner made her a 'noble' thief. Katie was, after all, trying to get some loot to sell in order to save her friends. She is an extremely loyal and caring woman, which are traits Cain find very appealing.

Katie finds herself enmeshed in the latest battle between good and evil, after witnessing a murder. She can't go to the police because the reason she was in the position to witness it would cause her some trouble, so her brother takes her to The Bound Ones. They promise to keep her safe but sparks really fly when Katie meets Cain - partially because of an attraction and partially because he looks exactly like the murderer.

Cain is one of The Bound Ones, a Nephilim whose powers have been bound. He and the three other Nephilim, all have different powers, which they refer to as their Grace. They use these gifts to protect innocents. Cain has kept his emotions locked down for centuries, never allowing anyone, outside of his brethren, in. Katie, however, brings out his possessive and protective instincts unlike no one else ever has.

Ms. Skinner did a great job of world building, weaving biblical mythology - angels, Nephilim, and even Cain and Abel - with human and Others - demons, lycans, shifters, and vampires.

I haven't read very many paranormal romances that center on angels, God, or demons. The ones I have read are phenomenal. Angel Kin is one of those.

Katie's loyal to a fault, reverting to old habits to help out her friends. Though I don't condone stealing to solve her friends' problem, I do admire her willingness to put herself in jeopardy to help them out. It was just too bad she ended up witness to a murder in the house she decided to rob.

Cain's loyalty lies only with his adopted family. He will do whatever needs to be done to protect his Nephilim brothers and angel father. His duller-than-dull life comes to a stuttering halt when Katie comes to him and his family for protection from a man who looks just like Cain. And just like that, his life is turned upside-down with the daunting realization that his twin brother Abel, whom Cain thought dead all this time, is alive, well, and coming for him.

Cain and Katie's relationship is rocky from the beginning. She thinks he's the killer while he thinks she's a pest. Forced to stick together until Abel is found, their distrust and dislike for each other shifts onto toward mutual ground, eventually giving way to attraction that's been simmering between them since their initial meeting. But Cain can't afford a distraction like Katie, no matter how much he enjoys her kisses, her breathy sighs, and the way she molds her body to his. Too much is at stake, not just for his family but for Katie as well. And she means too much to him at this point for him to risk putting her in danger while he goes after Abel.
