Review

Official Review from Online Book Club, Marisa Rose Reviewer: 
Michael's Passion (A Series of Angels Book 1) by Joel Crofoot is a paranormal romance focusing on angels and demons. The archangels, Michael and Gabriel, are estranged brothers forced to live an earthly life amongst humans after being cast out of heaven. Unlike his brother, Michael is relatively unfazed by his circumstance; moreover, Michael is rather despondent about most things due to the loss of his true love. A chance encounter between the archangel and a crying demon leads Michael to question everything he has ever known. Will Michael, a demon hunter, form an unlikely alliance with this unusual demon? Or will their actions lead to horrible consequences? Readers beware, this tale is not an accurate depiction of the recognizable biblical figures, but rather a fun fantastical and rather imaginary tale.

Michael's Passion is a quick and easy read. The relatively fast pace and subtle plot twists easily hold the readers interest. The author skillfully mixes well known angelic lore and familiar names with a unique plot and imaginative secondary characters. Further, Michael and Gabriel, though clearly super-angels, are equally conflicted and have notable weaknesses. I was worried Michael and Gabriel would be typical, untouchable heroes. Luckily, that is not the case; in fact, the complete opposite is true. Michael's apathetic attitude and Gabriel's self-deprecating thoughts make the two compelling and entertaining to read about.

The characterization of Jahi, the unusual demon Michael encounters, was by far the best aspect of this book. Jahi is a slave turned demon whore who uses her powers of seduction to steal human souls. Jahi is relatively fed up with her current lifestyle and only sees her job as a means to an end; she easily finds solace in Michael to avoid her abusive superior. Jahi could easily have been drawn as predictable and unimaginative; fortunately, the author does a great job making Jahi not only multi-dimensional, but empowering as well. Forced into an unwanted sex-slave relationship with her superior, Agares, Jahi is happy Michael wants to protect her; however, she is equally cautious about his angel status and wonders about his true intentions. Though the two have clear chemistry, Jahi holds back, not wanting to jump from one type of slavery to another. Jahi's characterization was realistic and liberating. It was a nice surprise to see the main female have a salacious past but refuse to let that define her. I thoroughly enjoyed that the author refrained from making Jahi just another 'damsel in distress' that falls head over heels for the gorgeous, hero-like angel. 

Though much of the characterization and plotting is unique, the book is still riddled with allusions to beautiful people and perfectly sculpted muscles as is typical of the genre. On the other hand, the sexual scenes were tastefully written and genuinely added to the plot. Generally speaking, I really have few complaints about this book. 

Michael's Passion is a quick read that many fans of the genre will enjoy. The author expertly combines believable romance with interesting paranormal characters to create a satisfying storyline. This book has a conclusive ending, but many elements are left open, leaving one excitedly anticipating the sequel. Michael's Passion clearly earns 4 out of 4 stars. A quick warning: the book contains mature content including sexual situations and strong language and therefore may not be appropriate for everyone. I would caution those who are easily offended by such matters, especially when they directly involve angels and spiritual teachings, to refrain from reading this book.

Review from Author K.T. Munson:
Characters

The two main characters are Archangel Michael and the demon Jahi. I love them both. The author does a great job of making them complex enough to feel real but not so complex and flawed that you can't like them. Michael is overly caring at times but such a knight in shining armor complex. While Jahi is almost painfully independent and determined to keep her freedom. Makes for great characters. Despite the slew of supporting characters the author makes Gabriel and some of the other angels/demons very interesting and they actually add to the story and not just the romance - very refreshing!

Plot

This is a romance but it is more. It is a romance with a plot! In addition to the determination to be together and their growing love, which was super sweet, there were action packed moments and another plot line. Actually multiple moving parts which kept me interested. Very cool take on Angels and Demons, not too original but for sure more thought out - especially the added complexity near the end.

I'm not a very religious person so some of this may be too close to home for some - be warned.

Overall

I read this book in one day. I totally just had to know how everything was going to work out. Even if the romance was very HEA the plot kept me jumping on other topics. Plus the baby angels (they are like 30 years old looking but totally lost on the ways of humans and it is ADORABLE)! The sensual scenes were steamy and appropriate. The complexity between Michael and the other angels, particularly Gabriel, really helped with character development and I loved them both more because of their internal crises. The writing was enjoyable and the fight scenes easy to follow.

Only thing I didn't like was the cover. It still makes me laugh at how silly it is - but you can't judge a book by its cover here!

Rating

5 stars

This book had it all for me and I absolutely loved it. I laughed out loud, I nearly cried (twice), and I was gripping my phone because of action or a tense scene. If you like paranormal romances this is a must read!

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. More reviews at creatingworldswithwords.wordpress.com."

About the Author

I was raised in northern New York state on a large family farm where the isolation provided me with active imagination. At 18 years-old I enlisted in the Marine Corps and spent my first 4 years in Japan working as a radio operator. I then became a bomb disposal technician (we call it explosive ordnance disposal) and returned to the U.S. to be stationed out of California. I did 2 combat tours to Iraq then left the Marine Corps to pursue higher education. I currently reside in Los Angeles and anticipate graduating with a doctorate in psychology in the fall of 2017. In my free time I enjoy running, playing with my dogs, and reading.
