shadows. When an angel shows up, the city's immortal guardian takes
issue, and when they meet face to face, the sexy, heated adventure
begins. Angel Unleashed is action packed from start to finish, and the
attraction between the two characters sizzles. Like this author's other
Blood Knights books, this one is a keeper.
An expert at tracking monsters, Rhys de Troyes has competently carried out his specific duty for centuries. As one of the Blood Knights, he uses the skills given to him during a long-ago ceremony to keep humans safe from anyone with supernatural abilities that intends harm. But one night, an unknown plus very powerful being arrives in London, and Rhys is determined to learn its background plus purpose. Shocked to discover the creature is female, he continues his concealed observation, waiting on the right moment to confront her and put a stop to anything devious.
When Avery Arcadia Quinn came to London, she had a particular reason. Running into one of the Blood Knights was certainly not on her agenda, and after coming in contact with Rhys, she knows not disclosing full knowledge of her undertaking along with the reasons behind it to him are imperative or he may interfere. Avery is a grounded angel, because her wings were taken from her to give the Knights some of their immortal capabilities and she wants them back. While she will not stop until her objective is complete, Rhys is just as single-minded about uncovering information related to the secretive being.
There are so many ground-breaking circumstances in ANGEL UNLEASHED, and I found myself in complete wonder time and again. Linda Thomas-Sundstrom has always been able to come up with inventive ideas to describe her characters, and Rhys plus Avery are certainly distinctive individuals. He may be one of the Blood Knights, but he also has his own capabilities and personality. I loved how he is a protector for those whom do not even know he exists, yet he wants no thanks for doing his duty. Rhys may be an immortal with much strength, but his sympathetic heart makes him compassionate to the needs of others. Poor Avery has been through so much, and the way in which she suffered really made me angry. But she can still find humor in unlikely places, and I had a great time watching her and Rhys banter back and forth. The passion they feel for the other is sky-high, leading to explosively heated encounters.
Keeping an ancient religious relic safe is part of the Blood Knights oath, and the author makes their ongoing task very believable. Even if the prior books in the miniseries have not been read, their mission is still clear and the reader does not feel lost at all. There is also a creative concept on how vampires were first formed, and their history is very interesting. One species of supernatural beings that Linda Thomas-Sundstrom does so well is werewolves, and I was delighted when they made appearances throughout the story. I am already eager to see what the author dreams up next.
I voluntarily reviewed the book and all comments are my honest opinion
Linda Thomas-Sundstrom pulls readers in with an imaginative take on angels and vampire hunters. After seeing so many paranormal romances that don't take things to another level this book was refreshing as it was a totally new concept and the characters types were outside the typical paranormal box. That's a real win for an over 20 year PNR veteran.
Rhys de Troyes is an immortal Blood Knight. He's one of the grail knights. He's been tasked with killing evil vampires and keeping the grail safe. Centuries ago he was turned from a human to something more. He's immortal and has fangs...but he doesn't drink blood. His creators are a bit of a mystery that gets unraveled in this book.
Our feisty heroine is Avery the wingless angel. She has to keep to the shadows and is tasked with finding the grail. She needs to get her wings back and return the grail to safety. From the moment Rhys sees Avery he is hooked on finding out what she is. She's not shouting it to the world that she's an angel and without the wings it's hard to tell what she is.
Rhys and Avery both have goals and they are not the same. It was wonderful watching these two characters play off each other and dig deeper into each others pasts.
Readers of "Angel Unleashed" should expect a fun and gritty tale with wing tattoos.
