Next to the powers of heaven and hell, we are nothing.

 

“So this was just one gigantic, cosmic war between light and dark magic. And we were only a small part of it, a tiny dot in the gods’ empire. It was no wonder that they saw us as insignificant.”

 

Tested by the gods, Leda and her angelic mate Nero venture into the City of Ashes, a fallen fortress in the Western Wilderness where nightmarish monsters reign supreme and an ancient secret is buried. To survive the Gods’ Trials, they will have to save the city—and they will have to do it without their magic.

 

Their victory, however, comes at a heavy price. And the secret they uncover will upset the balance of power between Earth and heaven.

Shifter’s Shadow takes place right where Dragon’s Stormends with the BIG surprise.

 

Leda and Nero are now officially a couple in this one. I’m happy that they are finally together, but that doesn’t mean things will go smoothly.

 

In Shifter’s Shadow we get Nero’s promotional test, the Gods Trial, and he has picked Leda as his second. Lets, just say this test isn’t easy and what the Gods expect Nero to do is down right upsetting and sad, but these two always find away to work around the rules and bet the odds.

 

As you can guess we get to meet the Gods and Goddess. Can’t say I’m a fan. Their seams to be things going on that only a slit few know about; a war amongst the gods and of course the issue with the demons. Not only do we meet the gods, but we get more surprises in the supernatural world that I didn’t see coming.

 

Leda has leveled up again and gets to lead her own team on a mission, while Nero stands by and observes. Leda is a fun character to like. She’s snarky, kick ass, and knows what to do in situations. She keeps her cool and keeps everyone on her team alive.

 

Ms. Summers has done a wonderful job in her world building, character development, and bringing in something new to each additional installment. Legion of Angels is a fantastic series. I’m hooked. Each installment brings me something new to love. It’s been a while since I’ve found a series that has pulled me in and made me want to read one book after another. Now that I’m done with book five, Shifter’s Shadows, I’ll have to wait for book six, since it’s not out yet.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

The supernatural storm of the century is coming.

 

Leda’s quest to gain the magic she needs to save her brother leads her to the castle of the Dragons, home of four soldiers in the Legion of Angels with extraordinary powers over the elements. If she makes it through their training, she might just survive her next sip of the gods’ Nectar and level up her magic.

 

But the gods’ gifts of magic come at a price. Leda can already feel the Nectar changing her, making her less human—and so is her budding romance with the angel Nero. Sip by sip, kiss by kiss, the change is taking hold of her.

 

As if that’s not enough, Leda finds herself once again caught between the armies of heaven and hell—and tempted by a darkness that threatens to consume the Earth.

I’m hooked on the Legion of Angels series. I get to the end of the book and all I want is more, so I pick up the next available title.

 

Dragon’s Storm is book four in the Legion of Angels series by Ella Summers.

 

Their where a lot of great developments and surprises in Dragon’s Storm.

 

Leda is currently at Storm Castle for training on the four elements; earth, air, fire, & water. Despite the fallout with Nero in the last book, he seeks Leda out for help on another mission to find one of the storm dragons who’s gone missing.

 

These two fight and work well together. I like seeing them on missions and off. In Dragon’s Storm Leda is indecisive on having a relationship with an angel, Nero. Their is a lot of tension between them as they work together. She has to decide if she could accept Nero for who he is, a man and an angel. She also has to realize that she has always acted this way and that the powers she gains, don’t change the person she has become.

 

We get a little more on the Guardians, but not much. We get to learn more on Nero’s mother and Leda’s brother Zane. Lots of surprise throughout this book and at the end we have BIG surprise that will shock.

 

This series packs a punch. I love the action and romance. Like getting hit with surprises in each book, going on a mission, and gaining more powers. Urban Fantasy fans will enjoy!

 

Rated: 4 Stars

When gods and demons clash, mortals bleed.

 

Leda Pierce’s latest mission brings her back to her hometown at the edge of the Frontier. But things have taken a turn for the worse in the six months since she left home to join the Legion of Angels in New York City. Crime lords now rule over the town, and the beasts’ numbers are exploding just beyond the great magic wall that separates humanity from the plains of monsters.

 

Together with the fiercely seductive angel Nero, Leda guides a group of pilgrims across the monster-infested expanse to the ruins of the final battle between gods and demons. What begins as a pilgrimage, however, soon turns into a treasure hunt for an ancient weapon that could tip the balance of power between heaven and hell—and spirals into an intrigue that pits Leda and Nero against a rogue member of the Legion, a legendary angel as powerful as he is black-hearted.

I’m hooked on the Legion of Angels series. It’s been a while since I’ve found a series that has hooked me enough where I want to read one book after the other.

 

Siren’s Song starts not long after Witch’s Cauldron. Leda has been leveled up and now has the power of the Siren’s Song. What this power is, is the ability to compel others to do things.

 

The Legion has been powering up as many members as possible. Nix, the First Angel hasn’t said why, but we can only guess that something big is coming. 

 

Leda is sent on another mission which takes her back to her hometown, Purgatory. She gets a taste of what being a Legion member really means. She learns that you can’t interfere in anything BUT Legion business, so when Leda sees a women being attacked, her instincts say help, but she can’t. This scene shows us and Leda that she cannot just be herself anymore. 

 

We also see / learn that their are big changes happening in the New York office. Their where some big surprises in Siren’s Song and their are Guardians, not just gods and demons. Who are theses Guardians? Their is more happening then what we know. 

 

I love the action and developments with the relationship; between Leda and Nero. In Siren’s Song, Leda and Nero are taking it slow in whatever their relationship is. We get to learn a little more about the angels and their personalities. 

 

The only thing I didn’t care for is the use of the gods Nector as a recreational drug.

 

Siren’s Song kept me riveted and wondering what could possible happen next for these characters. I’m picking up the next book, Dragon’s Storm, now. Urban Fantasy fans will enjoy this series. 

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Something wicked is brewing in New York.

 

“A month ago, I watched in horror as six of my fellow initiates died after sipping the Nectar of the gods, a heavenly drink that either grants you magical powers or kills you. I can’t believe I’m coming back for seconds.”

 

Leda Pierce has survived the gods’ first test and gained entry into the Legion of Angels, but the fight is far from over. Someone is poisoning the supernaturals of New York. Suspecting witches, the Legion sends in Leda to investigate. To save the city, she will need magic she doesn’t have—and gaining that magic might just kill her. Now her survival depends on accepting help from the darkly seductive angel Nero, but that help comes with a price she cannot afford to pay.

 

Witch’s Cauldron is the second book in the Legion of Angels series.

 

Goodreads

I’m really enjoying the Legion of Angels series. It’s been a while since I’ve found a series where I’ve wanted to read one book after another.

 

Witch’s Cauldron takes us back into the Legion world and continues on from Vampire’s Kiss. Here the Legion is investigating demons and the witches. Their seams to be attacks happening all over agenst the supernaturals.

 

Leda has grown stronger and is an asset to the Legion. Nix, the First Angel sees this and orders Nero to move Leda up to the second level and she wants her in on the investigation. She use to be a bounty hunter, so she has experience in investigating. She can work well in many different tasks and still find time for training.

 

I really like Leda. She’s strong-willed, stubborn, and determined to make it to the level that will give her the power to find her missing brother. She tries hard to be the best Legion officer, but she has a hard time controlling her mouth. She’s also got some strong feelings for Nero that keep getting in the way.

 

I find the different levels or steps that the Legion members have to go through to gain the next gift from the gods, interesting. This puts a unique spin on the world. Their is no guarantee that everyone will survive and it feels like you loose a little of your humanity the farther up you get. Leda is showing everyone that you don’t have to lose yourself when you gain powers. She’s sorta changing the status quo in little ways.

 

We no longer have a triangle romance. Leda’s attraction is now focused on one man, Nero the Leader of the New Your office of the Legion and also her personal trainer or should I say slave driver. The attraction is intense and Leda does a good job trying to separate the attraction from her work and training. I’m not sure if they will come together. Nero is intense, closed off, and disengaged from humanity. I’m hoping she can show him that there is more. I enjoy their sparing (bickering) matches.

 

Their’s more world building and lots of action. It’s all exciting and exhilarating. I couldn’t stop reading. The relationship parts where stressful; because these two just can’t seam to find the right fight. Maybe down the road. I was happy to see that Leda got to see her sister, Bella, while working the investigating. As for the investigation, well the villains where a surprise and what happens along the way, had me holding my breath and hoping they would all survive.

 

Witch’s Cauldron is a lot of fun, exciting, and entertaining. I devoured the book and had to start book #3, Siren’s Song, right away. Urban Fantasy fans will enjoy this series.

Once you sip the Nectar of the gods, there’s no going back.

 

Leda Pierce is working as a paranormal bounty hunter on the Frontier, the dividing line between human civilization and the plains of monsters. Life is simple and the pay modest, but at least she has her family. That is, until a vampire hunt goes wrong and her brother goes missing, captured by the dark angels of hell.

 

With no magical powers of her own and no way to find him, Leda’s only option is to go to New York and join the Legion of Angels, an elite unit of supernatural soldiers with powers gifted to them by the gods themselves. If she can survive long enough to make it up the ranks, she will gain the magic she needs to find her brother.

 

But Leda soon finds herself on the wrong side of a conspiracy that will shake up the supernatural world—and at the mercy of a fiercely powerful and tempting angel.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been driven to dive into one book after another in a series. Legion of Angelshooked me with the first book, Vampire’s Kiss, and I couldn’t stop until I read them all. Now I’m left waiting for the sixth installment to come. 

 

Note: This series does have some similarities to the Guild Hunters, but their are enough differences and unique qualities to make this something new and appealing. One similarity is that our heroine Leda has a backbone and talks back to the Angel’s and those higher up in the Legion. She stands up for what she feels is right. Like Elena in Guild Hunters.

 

Vampire’s Kiss is book one in the Legion of Angels series by Ella Summers.

 

In Vampire’s Kiss we are introduced to the world, to Leda, the Legion of Angel’s, and so much more. Their is quit a lot to wrap your mind around and digest in this first installment.

 

War has been raging; between demons and angels. This war destroyed the world and now everyone has to live behind a protective wall or the monsters in the Black Plains created by demons and gods will get them. 

 

Leda is a bounty hunter. Her family is not a family by blood, but a family by choose. They stick together and look out for each other, so when one goes missing. Leda makes a choice that will change her life. 

 

The Legion of Angel’s are an elite law enforcement agency. Those that join do not leave. It’s a life long services and the higher up you get in the ranks the more powers you are giving. The training is grueling and brutal. Their are several levels; before you become an angel or an archangel. To get leveled up you have to first servive the training and then the ceremony that grants you powers. 

 

Leda is a kick ass character. I liked her loyalty and love for her foster family. She puts herself through a lot to try and save her brother. The training in the Legion of Angel’s is demanding, but she’s determined and stubborn and I like that about her. Besides all the training, she actually gets to go on a case and investigate. I will say I had fun with Leda and I liked her standing up to Nero, the angel. 

 

Their is a little love triangle in Vampire’s Kiss. Two men take an interest in Leda and they approach her in different ways. Leda dose make decisions that lead one or the other on and with that it bumped my liking of her down a notch. I’m not a fan of love triangles, but I will say by the ending things are leaning more towards one. 

 

Now, their is one thing I didn’t care for. One scene Leda conforms to peer pressure. Everyone in the Legion of Angel’s takes this drug to help unwind and lossen up. I don’t care for the gods nectar being used as a recreational drug, but I guess at some point we all give into peer pressure. 

 

Last, Vampire’s Kiss just ends with no warning that it’s nearing the end. It was more like an ending of a chapter then an ending to a book. With this ending it leaves you wanting to either stop the series or pick up the next book and find out what happens next. 

 

I had a lot of fun reading Vampire’s Kiss. The story captivated and intrigued me. I liked the balance of action and romance. Urban Fantasy readers will enjoy this book.

 

Rated: 4 Stars
