Once one of the most powerful of Angels, Bale, along with his fellow Grigori brethren, were punished due to Lucifer’s trickery, and the only hope for redemption is to protect those Earthbound souls from the rising of Lucifer’s Demon children. It is a duty they gladly accept. But when Bale finds himself fascinated with the vampire, Faith, he fights it. Not only does the longing for her go against a vow he’d made centuries before, he is pretty certain someone is targeting him and his brothers—one of their own—so to protect her, he tries to resist the pull.
For Faith Magee, meeting Bale was like stepping out of the pan and into the fire. An injury due to a Demon hunt sends her into Transfiguration, the process by which a child born of a Vampire father turns, one year early and instead of getting out from under her domineering father’s thumb, finds that by taking Bale’s blood, she is bonded to a male who doesn’t seem to want her. And to make matters worse, blood from any other makes her violently ill. With her only options starving to death or giving into an alpha warrior, what’s a vampire to do?
Do you like action, alpha heroes, kick-ass heroines, suspense, mystery, and just about everything else a juicy paranormal erotic romance can possibly contain? Then you don’t want to miss Faith Revisited, a story that gets the blood pumping and the motor running.
There are so many fascinating characters and races presented in Faith Revisited. You have vampires, werewolves, archangels, demons, the fallen…the list goes on and on. I was captivated by this lush and vivid world, as well as the ultra-hot men that burned up the pages. Of course, it doesn’t the relationship between Bale and Faith is everything you want in a solid romance. There is the tension, the initial denial of their feelings, and finally the acceptance that sometimes fate won’t be denied. I loved the sizzling love scenes as much as I did the heart wrenching ones.
As Bale lost someone dear to him centuries before–as did his brothers, who all share a devastating history–there’s a lot of emotion packed in the pages, from both the hero and secondary characters. Just when you think you’ve taken all you can stand author Madelyn Ford takes it up a notch. The twists and turns along the way will also keep you on the edge of your seat, and when you finally learn who’s behind the chaos, you might see it coming, but you’ll still be shocked at the outcome. The story definitely leaves you wanting more, and since the ending leaves the series open, I can’t wait to see what happens next. Glimpses of future installments are hinted at, and I’m excited to read the stories of the Grigori that we were introduced to, as well as a few other memorable faces that Ms. Ford’s coming soon page allude to.
Faith Revisited is the start to what is sure to be an excellent series. Be sure to pencil this one onto your TBR list for some quality time in the reading chair.
