HeVan Sent by Lucy Kelly
HeVan Sent (The Nephilim Book 1) - Lucy Kelly

I really loved the society and history Lucy Kelly has created in this story. She has gone to great lengths to give the reader a new and different world that is just similar enough for us Earthlings to relate to. When the Hevanthians injured queen crash lands on Earth, her only thought is to keep her people alive and well, and part of that involves procreating with the natives.

Generations later, Addie stumbles upon a find that will completely blow her mind - and she is suitable shocked. It's a pet peeve of mine when characters accept things a little to easily, but Addie handles this sudden change in her life realistically and bravely. Although I'm sure the fact that her discovery includes a boatload of hot guys that all seem to adore her helps a little. There are some side characters (which I'm assuming come into the story more later) that accepted a little too easily for me, but Kelly did a good job of trying to explain why and most of the time I believed her.

The romance was a little sudden - but I tend to see that a lot in fated mates type of stories. And at times things tended to jump around a little too much with not a lot of transition from one issue to another. This was a great start to a series with a solid base for many more happy couples (triples? quads? I'm not sure what to call them) in future books. The men needed to have a little more backbone at times. They caved a little too easily to Addie's demands at times and a nice conflict of differing opinions is a great way to show some personality and how the characters think. I hope to learn more about HeVan and what's happened since the queen left. It sounds like a fascinating place.

5 full moons - "Unchained" by J. Lynn
Unchained - J. Lynn

This is not my first book from J. Lynn (aka Jennifer L. Armentrout) and it definitely will not be my last. I had a hard time putting down this book, while reading it.  I’m still recovering from reading it, so bare with me.

I loved everything about this book and how it took me back to my passion of reading one of my favorite types of paranormal creatures:  Fallen Angels and Nephilims.  Every book that involves fallen angels, angels, and half-angels…I will definitely pick up to read and when I read the synopsis of Unchained, I knew I was going to have to read it.  Of course, J. Lynn knows how to keep me reading and neglecting my duties around my house, but I could not help it.  I fell for the Fallen Angel, Julian, in this story and felt sympathetic towards Lily.  The storyline alone had already captured me in, and there was no stopping me from reading this book.

Lily is a Nephilim, who works with other Nephilims in the Sanctuary to rid the world of the Fallen Angels and their minions and deadheads.  She has been trained to kill no matter what, when she comes across any Fallen Angel because they are nothing but evil.  Her world is going to change the minute she decides to go against everything she has ever learned and trained for when she lets one Fallen Angel into her life.  Julian is anything, but evil.  In fact, he has saved Lily three times already and he is always there to protect her.  ( He definitely won me over…especially with the heated sexy scenes )

The other Nephilim are starting to suspect, she’s going to end up just like Anna, who fell for a Fallen Angel and got herself killed.  Lily is different though, but she is starting to second guess everything she has been taught.  Not every Fallen Angel can be evil and maybe everything she has learned, has been a lie.

When someone in the Sanctuary is telling the Fallen Angels where the Nephilims are that the hunters are supposed to protect and find, all heck is about to break loose.  Lily is going to have to face the big bosses and be accused of something she is not doing.

The minute the truth comes out on who it is and what is really going o,n that is when the readers are left in shock.  At least I know I was because I was not expecting the epic conclusion to Unchained.  I am still in shock over it. I did not expect the one person to be the traitor.

I loved every bit of the characters in this story and how everything is introduced and what Lily and her kind are doing.  I did definitely fall for Julian in the story.  How can you not…he is one sexy, protective, lovable Fallen Angel, who even makes me question their kind.

J. Lynn did an amazing job building the first story up and making me want more.  I cannot believe she wrote this book in 2008 and is just now getting published.  I’m definitely addicted to this series already and cannot wait until the next one comes out.

I give this book 5 full moons and highly recommend it to paranormal romance and urban fantasy readers out there.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Nephilim: The Truth Is Here (Nephilim series, #1)
Nephilim: The Truth Is Here (Nephilim series, #1) - Lynn A. Marzulli In the first chapters of 'Nephilim', Art Mackenzie, a alcoholic reporter, stumbles upon evidence of a government cover-up. He infiltrates the restricted floor of a mental hospital, where patients, all women, are kept sedated and restrained. One woman tells him that something fathered an inhuman child in her (a Nephilim - the offspring of a fallen angel and a human mother). Thus begins the story of what really happened at Roswell New Mexico, cattle mutilations, alien abductions, secret underground bases, black-op military units, conspiracies within conspiracies, and a clever story which links UFO phenomena with the Biblical account of the Nephilim in Genesis 6.

The book explores a fascinating and refreshing end-time theory which, while a bit bizarre for the average person, is disturbingly believable. About 'Nephilim' Chuck Missler, renowned Bible scholar, states the following:

"A very provocative scenario. It appears Lynn Marzulli has done his homework."

I have always been interesting in UFO phenomena and how it fits within a Christian World view, so I couldn't wait to read 'Nephilim'. I found the story to be between average and good. My reasons follow...

The first half of the book was relatively slow for me. I'm used to high suspense, high action novels, and although this has some great action and suspense, it is definitely not in the same league as anything by Dekker or Huggins. However, one must realise that the background and foundation of the story takes a lot of explaining, and it really does set up the whole trilogy. I've read that the second book is a total roller-coaster ride, so here's hoping.

This book is also blatantly Christian and makes no apologies for being so, which I find quite refreshing. There are many Christian authors who include Christian ideas throughout their stories to cover both the Christian and secular market, there is nothing wrong with this, but I did enjoy the non-compromising nature of the book.

If you enjoy a good story, with smatterings of suspense horror and action, and have an interest in aliens and the paranormal, Christian or non-Christian... you will find this a very enjoyable and thought provoking read. I'm looking forward to Book 2: Unholy Deception.
