And now I'm going to spoil his identity because this is where I have a problem with the story. If you don't want to know, stop reading now.
Vampires are mythology. Angels are not. Though angels appear in human form many times in the Bible, nowhere does it suggest they're subject to the same passions as us. Nowhere does it support angels being able to procreate or fall in love. In fact, Jesus says just the opposite. Angels don't marry (Mark 12:25). 'Jesus replied, “Marriage is for people here on earth."' (Luke 20:34) There are plenty of false religions that support the angel romance genre, but the Bible does not. An angel's purpose is to glorify and serve God, and an angel acting on his own isn't an angel. An angel acting on his own is a demon, and there's no Biblical evidence anywhere of any demon ever repenting. If the author had made Galen a reformed vampire or some other mythological creature, I'd have been cool with that. But when Galen tells Jo he rebelled against God and repented and has been banished to earth to make up for it, Haynes is going somewhere the Bible doesn't go.
Also, the suggestion that these rotting monsters are seductive and can actually have sex violated my suspension of belief. Up till then I'd been thinking of recommending this book to someone, but when a vampire tries to rape Jo... No, just. No.
