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!
Asriel, a Nephilim angel from Orlos, is sent to guard a human woman. As a Stratos warrior, it's hard to be a bodyguard when he hasn't been trained as such. Additional numerous complications, one being his his attraction to her, adds to the difficulty. There's some definite surprises which make it worth it.
First, the cons (if you can call it that). I wish it were longer. With any fictional book, explaining the characters and the world they inhabit is a challenge. On the world, it's a question as to how much detail does one want. For me, sometimes the more the better. The only other minor con is Asriel's swearing which struck me as odd behavior for an angel.
Now the positives. Quite a characters make an appearance which fuel the various plots and sub-plots. It's truly hard to put this book down. The lovemaking scene(s) are thought out. The later fight scenes are detailed. Without giving away the plot, there's at least three distinct turns and one "I didn't see that coming".
The ending made sense. However, some of the open questions leave this reader wondering what will happen next in the series. I'm looking forward to the next one. All in all, worth picking up.
The writing style flows very well, the characters are very well thought out as well.
The story follows Asriel who is sent to guard Malina. She has a knack for attracting trouble.
He runs into bad things from his past. If he chooses to love her, he cannot go back to his home and she will have to agree to let him survive off of her blood. Will she let him make that choice? And can he fight his past demons and protect her from his enemies?
You will have to read the book for the answers!
Cannot wait to read book 2!
