Mihael is an angel responsible for loyalty and is completely shocked when he is put on trial for upholding loyalty over compassion. A mysterious assignment on Earth is supposed to help him understand and this starts with seeing Arthur, a mortal, being bullied and asked to doctor numbers in the accounts he is working on.
This is the first book I have read in the Celestial Justice series which is about different angels falling in love. The first chapter took me a while to get into, I wasn’t completely sure what was going on or who was who, but that probably wouldn’t have been the case if I’d read others in the series.
Mihael’s love interest is language teacher Francis Portillo. Their meeting is sudden, with Miheal just appearing in front of him. They strike up a conversation and Francis discovers that Mihael has no idea where his is or why. He presumes he has some kind of amnesia and offers to help him. There are a few oddities about Mihael – his lack of ID, wads of cash – that Francis accepts maybe a little too readily, but perhaps that is just my suspicious mind.
Mihael’s Trial has good characters and an element of celestial paranormal. It took a while to get going but once the characters connected it flowed much better. The writing is elegant, the romance sweet and the sex scenes steamy. If you are a fan of this series then I am quite sure it will hit the spot.
