Fallen Angels by J.R. Ward Reviewed

Fallen Angels by J.R. Ward ~V^^V

At this point I don't have a whole lot of praise for this series. It seems to be falling a bit flat for me. Now it could be my aversion to angels, or it could just be lacking that thing that made BDB so good. Either way I will not give up on Ward. I continue to read these books and give you my thoughts.

Hmmm, what to say. After BDB, I am not sure that anything can be quite as good. This first story didn't hook me the way BDB did, nor did it keep me captivated the same. However it was an interesting scenario and well told.. Seriously my review is skewed because I really don't care for angel stories, though I am trying because I enjoy JR so much. The concept is interesting enough, 7 deadly sins, seven souls, will good or evil triumph? The characters are dynamic, the sex steamy and the gore plentiful. My overall opinion is that is it OK.

Book two in the Fallen Angels series, it really didn't do much for me. It was just kind of blah. I was expecting the end but still a little shocked. I thought it would take a few more books to get there. I can't put my finger on what it is that is not working for me in this series. Is it the angels? Is it the gore? Is it the characters? Everything is standard Ward writing but it just doesn't pop. My personality doesn't allow for me to leave series open ended so I will continue but I am not going to rush.

This is going to sound really harsh but here goes. Why do I keep reading these? I find them really slow, too long and dull. The gore is a bit much for my tastes and the women tend to be EXTREMELY naive. I will tell you that I find it beyond belief that a woman who would go through training and become an officer would immediately believe the worst of a man whom she had just spent so much time getting to know. And slept with him nonetheless she believes a stranger over him when it comes to murder? I think that may have been to much for me. The Olde English speak mixed with urban slang is just weird as well. The concept it still interesting but I don't know how much I am still interested Do I really want to continue? ~Michelle

The fourth book Rapture is due out:  September 25, 2012.
