When this deal breaks, Heaven will fall. Catching two demon burglars is routine for Gabriel 1089, who’s one cog in an army of cybernetically modified humans protecting the sky city of Heaven. Until two turns into a twenty-demon ambush. When he wakes up, he’s missing his network-enabled halo—and one of his metal wings. The down-level junk dealer tending Gabe’s wounds has hands that spark nerve endings he never knew he possessed. But for an angel cut off from Heaven, an attic in Old Trent feels more like a trap than a sanctuary. Demons on his doorstep are nothing new for Jeff Werth. Ever since they saved his daughter’s legs, they’ve been calling in their marker. In exchange for his services—nursing Gabe back to health so they can use him as a pawn in their war with Heaven—they’ll consider the debt paid in full. Except having a powerless angel at his mercy feeds a rising desire that has him rethinking the deal. Then the de-haloed Gabe begins having dreams that become visions…then memories. Until he’s not sure whose side he’s on. Heaven, or the simple family man who healed his broken wings…and made his heart whole. Warning: The sexual awakening of an angel, some wing porn, abuse of heavenly clichés and a dog who steals the show.

Note to self: Supernatural fanfiction has ruined all angel/demon stories for me. Anyways...Rating: 2.5 starsI think the premise behind Angel 1089 makes for an interesting story. However, the story was plagued with sparse writing, very shaky world building, and not-so-very-good characterization. That...
Rating would have been higher if Bridges had explored the whole situation just after Gabe got dropped off and before his memories started coming back. I feel like that was kind of...skimmed over. And I thought the whole returning memory thing was a little too easy. IMO, he settled back into them waa...
This book is definitely a favorite of mine and I hope to read more from this author soon.That said... there was one part (specifically one paragraph) that hit my rage-button. If there is one thing I cannot stand it is inaccurate geology. (what can I say, being a rock-geek runs in my family) I won't ...
Let me do something new. It's my first review with a cover image to explain the story. Why? I loved it... love this cover art, and looking at this picture I see what I can tell (or not, I'll not spoil the mystery) about this bookSo, he is Gabriel, or as he will be called, Gabe. In a post apocalyptic...
