Nephilim by Mary Ann Loesch
Tattoo artist Nathan Ink is more than he seems. An angel living in secret on earth, he forces his clients to face their flaws by tattooing images of their sins on their bodies, but this glimpse into the soul often results in his clients’ deaths. Although Nathan avoids the other angels, when they ask him to keep an eye on Faye, a nephilim being
stalked by another of her kind, he reluctantly agrees.
The angels have kept Faye in the dark about her stalker, but to keep her close to Nathan, they’ve tasked her with investigating the high mortality rate of Nathan’s clients. Despite her distaste for his methods, she finds herself fighting a growing attraction to Nathan, and discovering he’s not a rogue after all forces her to question her own mission. When Faye learns her stalker is another nephilim who intends to use her to breed a new race of hellish beings, teaming up with Nathan may be the only way to prevent a genocide.
I loved this book! I can’t say it enough- I loved it! The subject matter
is right up my alley, as I have been very interested in the concept
angels as vessels for good and evil lately. The story, set in third
person with multiple points of view, does a great job of always keeping
the reader on their toes about who is working for good and who is not.
The story is fast paced and kept me up until the wee hours wanting
to find out all of secrets of these characters. There were amazing plot
twists that I never saw coming and several moments where I felt my
emotions right in tune with the characters. I loved that the characters,
angels who are supposed to work for God, could be just as flawed,
tempted into sin, and vulnerable as the rest of us.
This book will keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting more
when it’s over. I just hope that Mary Ann Loesch will continue to write
books in this series to satisfy my sin of desire!
