Angel of Darkness by Cynthia Eden Review

Today I am featuring the amazing, sweet, talented Cynthia Eden. Now, if you have read any of her books, you know that you have to get your hands on this fantastic new series. Once again Cynthia does not disappoint. The first book in this series is called ANGEL OF DARKNESS and is going to be released on 11/29/11. Oh my and what a fantastic book this is. I am incredibly excited for the rest of this series.

As an angel of death, Keenan’s job is to collect the souls on his list. He’s carried out his duty for two thousand years and never faltered once. Until he meets Nicole St. James.  When the moment of death comes, Keenan hesitates, and instead of taking Nicole, Keenan touches the vampire who’s attacking her.
Cast out of heaven for disobedience, Keenan plummets to earth. Six months later, he finally manages to track Nicole to a bar in Mexico. He’s stunned to discover that the woman he remembers has undergone a dramatic change—she’s become a vampire. And when he realizes that she’s the target of all manner of enemies—other vampires, demons, even shifters—he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her, even if all hell breaks loose…

Now on to what I thought of this book!
I am just going to start out by saying WOW! This is a sexy, thrilling, emotional read that will suck you in and not let go. The world that Ms. Eden creates is unique and exciting.
I will not summarize the book for you cause the blurb is above but I will tell you that you have to get this book on release day.
Keenan is such an amazing character, you will love him right from the beginning. He has had a very sheltered life as an angel and one that has not allowed him to touch anyone without causing harm. Imaging how he feels when he touches Nicole for the very first time. Oh my...The passion is thrilling and emotional all at the same time. He is strong and capable yet sweet and caring. Oh and did I mention he is a virgin. Yep, you heard me right, a virgin. But don't let that fool you, he does not disappoint in that department. 
Nicole is a strong women who was put through the ringer and didn't have any idea what to make of it. She didn't have anyone to guide her through her "change" and the simple fact that she survived is a testament as to how strong she is. At one point in the books she is given some pretty horrible news and she takes it in stride. I truly loved her from the beginning and I know you will to. She is the perfect match for Keenan.
I thought this book read really well with no jumpiness at all. Cynthia did a fantastic job of giving you a clear picture of the world you are reading about and really makes you understand where each character came from. The emotion is so descriptive that you can't help but feel what the characters are feeling and the sexual tension burns up the pages. There are a lot of players in this new world that Cynthia has created but she does a fantastic job of declaring who is who and what their purpose is in the story. I have a feeling that some of these players are gonna be making future appearances and I cannot wait.
Cynthia has outdone herself with this thrilling read. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a excellent paranormal romance.
