Archangel of Mercy by Christina Ashcroft

Sunday, January 20, 2013
Synopsis: When Aurora Robinson attempts to open a rift between dimensions to embrace her true heritage, an arrogant Archangel is the only one who can save her from the jaws of hell. And while she owes Gabriel her life, she's determined not to fall at his feet-despite the desire she feels whenever they're together.

After his wings were brutally destroyed millennia ago, Gabriel has no compassion for humans like those who ruined him and betrayed the ones he loved. But when he inexplicably finds himself defying ancient protocols to rescue a woman from a fate worse than death, he is shocked by the searing attraction he feels for a mortal.

As the ancient forces that seek to punish Aurora for her actions close in, Gabriel offers the tempting woman protection at his private sanctuary. But as they both succumb to their desires, they discover an even deeper connection-one that threatens to consume them.

 
Review: This story is definitely worth a look. It focuses quite a bit on the relationship between Gabriel and Aurora, especially the difficulty that Gabriel has in forgiving himself and humans in general. But there is enough of a side plot and action to prevent the book from being a repetitive drama. I think that's worth a lot in any story. This book also presents a new alternative to the traditional theories about life in the universe, something that sets it apart from others and keeps a reader's interest. However, the author's writing style, while possessing a large vocabulary and well-put together, is not original, The same tone could be found in any number of other books.
