“Why, look here, Michael. I caught me another dove.”
The Fallen grinned triumphantly. “Won’t the master be proud of me that I’ve
killed two more?” His tongue glided across his lips at the same time he
caressed my face. I grimaced and jerked my head away. “This one is beautiful. I
think I’ll have my way with her and then rip out her heart.” He leaned into me,
pressing his face to my hair, and touched my cheek with his. I wanted to throw
mentally blocking out the vision of his words from my mind. Fear would not take
me. I had created my situation and it was up to me to get out of it. Knowing I
had backup, my courage grew. The Fallen pierced his dark, devious eyes into
mine as if he could reach inside my soul. His brows were thick, nose sharp, and
his lips so thin they were hardly there. His ghostly pale skin revealed a long
scar running from his temple to his chin on his left cheek.
“Please, let her go. You have me,” I stammered.
“Oh, this one is so brave. What a great combination.
Maybe I’ll brainwash her and train her to be on our side.” He hissed at me,
showing me all of his abnormally sharp teeth. They appeared as if he’d
purposely sharpened them.
My team had
gotten closer, but where were Uncle Davin and Zach? Knowing we were outnumbered
three to one didn’t give me much hope, but I had to remind
myself we were stronger than we thought. Father and Uncle Davin were with us,
the greatest demon hunters of their time.
“I’m giving you one last warning,” Father stated with
laughed again, mocking Father. “You’re giving me a warning? Let me
tell you my name so everyone will remember it when they die. I’m called
Mortem…meaning death.” Trailing the dagger down Victoria’s neck, he nicked it.
Crimson liquid seeped from the wound, creating a red line down the front of
her. “Beautiful. I love this color. I can’t wait to see more of it…on her.” Then, with a wicked grin, he plunged
the sword into Victoria’s heart.
Review of The Angel Knights
(The Angel Knights #1):
A great start to an excellent series. This prequel should be read first as it explains a lot in the second book, The Chosen Knights. This book explains the beginnings of the disturbance in Insula. It is the story of the family and the fears of facing such a disturbance. It also explains how the children of Michael and Claudia come into their destinies as demon hunters. This is a must read before heading into book 2.

and Claudia’s decision to move back to Crossroads was to keep their children
safe, but they can’t escape who they are. Their children, Zachary and Lucia,
were destined to be demon hunters—Venators. From the age they were able to hold
a sword, they were trained to become the best and to ensure they would become
leaders one day.
All is peaceful throughout the land until the
Fallen and demons’ presences were felt in the between and on Earth. As the
Venators investigate these locations, they will quickly learn how dangerous
their lives are. Hearts will be broken. Teammates will lose their lives. And
they will face obstacles which will test their faith.
As danger grows, the fear of fallen angels and
demons regrouping has the Divine Elders on pins and needles. Now, Zachary and
Lucia, along with Uncle Davin, must prepare themselves—mentally and
physically—to live on Earth to investigate where the focal point of evil
resides before it’s too late.
