BOOK REVIEW - UNCHAINED by JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT - J LYNN - NEPHILIM RISING # 1 - ENTANGLED PUBLISHING - ADULT PARANORMAL ROMANCE

By: Jennifer L Armentrout / J Lynn
Published By: Entangled
Released: Available Now
Details: Paperback from local library, 400 Pages

RATING : 4.5 JULIAN, REMY, RAFE, LUKE, NATHANIEL, GABE ETC STARS! 

Between the pissed off creatures that want demon-hunter Lily Marks dead and the fallen angel who just...wants her, Lily is about ready to trade in forever for a comfy job in a cubicle farm.

The fact that she and Julian are civil to one another is enough to have her thrown out of the Sanctuary, but she can't shake her not-so-angelic stalker or how he brings her dangerously close to ecstasy.

Her forbidden relationship with Julian provides the perfect fuel for suspicion when a traitor is discovered to be working within the Sanctuary. Lily quickly finds herself hunted by well, everyone.

Her only hope is to discover the real traitor before she loses everything--and she'll need Julian's help. That is, if Julian is really there to help her...and not destroy her.

Yeah, being a Nephilim isn't everything it's cracked up to be.



BOOK REVIEW by Michelle


Now I am going to start by saying I LOVED this book.

I can see it was meant to be book 1 in the Nephilim Rising series which was published back in 2013.

But!

Now I understand it is a stand-alone. Whether it be sales or poor response to the first book, I am going to say I am a little gutted the series is not continuing.

So much potential.

I want to know more.

I feel a little cheated that I can’t read more as this was originally going to be a series.

Thems the breaks. I am a fan of all things written by JLA.

JLA wrote this back in 2008 per the acknowledgements section. Yes, I always read this added stuff in books. It was her second book she ever wrote.

Now I did work out who the bad egg was, but I loved the whole story.

Julian is our fallen angel and who doesn’t love a fallen angel?

Julian is also extremely sexy in the erm... let’s-get-it-on department.

Holy mac and cheese!

Lily Marks, a Nephilim is our heroine of the story and I really like her, she takes a bit of a beating and is kickass.

I loved all the sub characters introduced and Michael. This first book was set up to continue exploring other characters.

This is where I am sad and it sounds like no more Nephilim Rising.

There are some awesome deadly villains who I would love to have read more about. Asmodeus is a bad dude, written so well.

Even the character Gabe, he might only have been in the book for a short bit but...well, there is a Gabe and Lily scene and OMG!

But alas I can read no more.

Total book bummer!

LOL!

No really I am bummed.

Don’t let this stop you from reading this book, because you never know, the more peeps who read it, the more it might get that sequel.

Never say never.
