Wicked Nights: Gena Showalter

Wicked Nights by Gena Showalter novel coverThis is a paranormal romance that encompasses angels (both male and female) and the battles they wage against demons.  Human females get mixed in with these heavenly beings and eventually romance ensues. It’s an easy read but has enough depth to it that you want to continue reading to find out what happens to the characters. It’s heavier on the paranormal than it is on the romance (although there is enough of it to satisfy romance fans).  I enjoyed this book and am reading subsequent installments of the Angels of the Dark series.

The other installments feature angels and characters mentioned in this book.  I find that common with romance series; the building out of multiple characters within their own novels.  I really like this method as often times I find myself intrigued by other characters and wishing for a side story … but the author dedicates an entire novel.  By the time you are done with the series you’re pretty much an expert on everyone.  Ties together nicely.

Zacharel (main angel character) rescues Annabelle (main human character) from a demon that isn’t really after her …. he’s after Zacharel.  It’s a plot twist that I didn’t see coming and thought it was very well done.  I’m not going to give too much away.  You’ll just have to read it.

I have to chuckle a little bit at the covers on these types of novels.  They’re a bit silly really.  No where in this novel do the character stand around looking like that.  I suppose that’s what sells these books to the main audience.

I give this one 4 out of 5 stars.  Promising author and definitely a good beach read or something that could be put down and picked up easily.  Borrowed it from the library:)
