All Malina Tarver wants is a normal life. Since long before she lost her adoptive parents, she’s always been in some kind of trouble. Not one to follow rules, Malina drifts from job to job, surviving with help from her two older brothers. Tired of being the family screw-up, Malina is determined to make her latest job work…if she can just avoid her boss’ creepy, married son and not get attacked again by those shadowy demon-things. All she wants is to be able to take care of herself…and get her Nana out of that horrid nursing home.
Orlosian warrior Asriel cannot be bothered…with anything. He’s feeling disoriented and unfocused and he needs to find out why. He has no time to be sent to Earth to babysit a HUMAN, of all things. And besides, the last time he was on Earth, there was that…thing…and it cost a lot of lives. He’s in no hurry for a replay. However, the Council has spoken and Asriel is indeed sent to Earth to watch over Malina until she makes contact with a mystery man.
As Asriel arrives to Earth, Malina is harassed by her boss’ son, attacked by demons…and finds a puppy…all in the same evening! She also senses Asriel’s presence – something she shouldn’t be able to do. Asriel is also puzzled as he is helplessly drawn to the human female – something else that has never happened before.
Calm Assurance contains several mysteries and many secrets. Who is Asriel and where is he from? Why are demons after Malina? Who pulled a teenage Malina from her burning home? Who was Malina’s father, and what is her grandmother hiding? Who is Joseph Ward and what does the Council want with him? And…who/what is Malina?
Malina and Asriel have to work together to figure out her significance to the Council, and it will not be easy. The closer Malina gets to Asriel, the more he pulls away. To be with her means he’ll become one of the Fallen, and the only way he can survive…is to drink her blood.
Tightly written, detailed story that draws you right in! Asriel is the consummate alpha male – without all the arrogance and chest beating. #TeamAsriel
Malina is a jewel! Strong and determined, she has no time for tears, whining or running. She wants to know who she is…and what she is. And she wants Asriel. A must read for all paranormal lovers, especially fans of Nephilims.
Bring on book 2!
Dariel Raye is a fairly new author to me, as this is the second time I am reading her work. I was impressed by her writing style and her character development in Dai's Dark Valentine, therefore, when I was asked to read and review Calm Assurance I did not hesitate.
When I hear the term calm the first word that comes to mind is composed. The male protagonist, Asriel was the embodiment of this term. He was sent to earth to provide assurance to the female protagonist, Malina that she would be safe no matter what.
Asriel is an Orlosia warrior. He is a descendant of the Nephilim and a law enforcer among his kind. He was assigned the task of guarding Malina Tarver. However, he felt he had better things to do than babysitting troublesome human beings. In addition, he had no wish for history to repeat itself. However, he had no choice in the matter, for when the Orlosian council speaks, one has no choice but to obey.
Malina Tarver had dreams of meeting a man who was interested in her for more than sex. She was a magnet for trouble wherever she went. Currently, she is facing problems at work. However, she did not want to disappoint her brothers, as such she was determined to stand her ground. She blames herself for the death of her adoptive parents. Since then she has tried to make amends the way she thought was best.
From the moment, Asriel laid eyes on Malina, he knew there was more to her than what met the eyes. The feelings she stirred within him was none like he ever felt before. It made him question his loyalty to the Orlosian rules. Will he allow his feelings for Malina to take precedence over the rules he had spent his entire life obeying?
The development of the characters was as I expected. Ms. Raye provided sufficient background information making it easy for her readers to understand what drove her characters. I understood the turmoil that Asriel faced. Making a choice is never easy, especially when you have to choose between the known and the unknown. Malina's feelings jumped off the pages of the book. I felt her frustration, her pain, and her desires.
Calm Assurance has a unique plot. It was an exciting read as I had no idea what was going to happen next. This fast-paced read is filled with romance, suspense and drama will have you glued to its pages until the very end. While reading, several questions arose which the author addressed to my satisfaction.
If you love stories that feature a strong heroine and a badass hero, then you will enjoy Calm Assurance. This is a must read for fans of paranormal romance.
