I previously read some of her other books, and though I enjoyed them, I have to say, this is series may be my favorite yet! What I love best about reading fantasy books is when the author takes you away into another world, and this book certainly does that, plus the characters (Justice and Jess) really come to life.
Fast forward fifteen years and the girl who watched the murder scene when her father investigated, twenty-something-year-old Jes, is a detective who hasn't forgotten the mystery was never solved. She knows who or, better said, what Justice is because she was gifted the same powers with the only difference that she hasn't used them...yet. Even though she believes Justice to be a murderer, she vows to find him because there's something she needs from him. Not only can he shed some light on what really happened on that fateful night fifteen years ago and why he was forced to turn at such a young age, he's also the only person who knows something about her parents' disappearance.
I'm a big fan of the paranormal /dark fantasy genre but that's not why I liked this book so much. From the very beginning The Fallen One has an eerie gothic atmosphere and as the plot moves forward the tale becomes even spookier. The characters are deep and described in such vivid detail that I had no trouble imagining them. The setting is unique, and the background story is something that hasn't been done before. What impressed me the most, however, was the writing. It's easy to read but at the same time lyrical with beautiful description and the mystery that engulfs both Jes and Justice had me spell-bound. There's plenty of action, drama, and a blossoming romance.
This is a must read and I'm looking forward to great things from this series. I hope the second book will be out soon.
I wasn't disappointed by this story, Oh no! If you're the kind of readers who love to be stuck it up into action non-stop, a mix of supernatural creatures with awesome powers, a background as good and well developed as Lord of the Ring (well, without the complexity of it!), you just find you're ''next to-be read'' book!
When I read the first few pages, we meet Justice, the male character and were not sure if he's a good guy or a bad guy. He's the typical, super handsome, muscular, too-good in combat/training and he just find he's totally awesome, beautiful, kick-ass mate Jes. Who doesn't want to do anything with him. Even if they are attracted to each other they soon realise they are fated mate. This part is of the story is not unusual to PNR. But the author is putting the emphasis on the ''war'' and the bad guy they will have to fight. When they meet each other: SPARKLES! Everything seems to start from this encounter and everything else is well integrated to give the reader what he want and need: a nice/good/interesting plot, a lot of action, well driven characters, important and stunning secrets are revealed... Wow, each chapter give you more information on this outstanding world created by this talented author: Lenore Wolfe. Such a great imagination/creativity, Ms. Wolfe knows how to please the readers with enough romance/action/suspense scenes! I don't know if it's just me and the fact that I'm so in love with vampires but all I can say is: I hope there will be a book about Dracon and Dana!!!!
This story is bigger than it appears! Jes and Justice have they little personal story and everything about the war, the legends and myths, discovery of family ties and secrets, the arrival of other factions of supernatural creature as vampires, shifters, witches, fae,... are embroidered around the main characters and everything seem to fit perfectly!
The only thing that bothers me a little was the fact that Jes and Justice didn't seems to have enough time together. Maybe I'm a freak of love/sex scenes, but it's cool to read about them. They spiced up everything :) But when we read this story, we all understand that the time/place wasn't the best at all!

This book blends an amazing amount of mythologies, historical figures, monsters, religious practices, and even ecology. I found myself going, oh, yeah I recognize that, cool! or, whoa, how she get that into the story line? It's original in that way that great Urban Fantasy can be and mixes in romance and the bonds of fated mates. I really love that kind of bond in a story. Don't we all want that kind bond with our lover?
There are plenty of interesting characters and danger mixed with politics and people who have pasts that are hidden - even from themselves.
However, I found that I was often confused in the story line and grammatical errors left me irritated. A thorough line and content edit could have polished this book into a 4.5 or even 5 out of 5 for me. The ground work is so damn solid, and Ms. Wolfe has a new and interesting twist to give shifter, vamp, Fae, government conspiracy, and even, biological warfare. And it all works! I promise you.
But it gets muddled in the technical errors. This book is definitely worth a look. The world building is really new and fresh.
