    I m a roleplay geek and even have Margaret Weis authograph, being a fan of her as she s co author of the Dragonlance Saga So I was surprised to see she had ventured into Paranormal Romance Surprised and curious enough to pick up this book And I wasn t disappointed Margaret and Lizz write a convincing story Matthew might be a fallen angel, he s likeable enough that you want him to get out on top of things He can be a bit dense at times I must confess and there were times I wanted to kick h I m a roleplay geek and even have Margaret Weis authograph, being a fan of her as she s co author of the Dragonlance Saga So I was surprised to see she had ventured into Paranormal Romance Surprised and curious enough to pick up this book And I wasn t disappointed Margaret and Lizz write a convincing story Matthew might be a fallen angel, he s likeable enough that you want him to get out on top of things He can be a bit dense at times I must confess and there were times I wanted to kick him, but all in all he s a very cool and believable character The story is well written and very entertaining, although the romance is a bit slow which might be a problem to those who pick this story up for the romance There s at least one other book in this series and I will certainly pick that one up too if I run across it

    I liked the book up until the last 5 chapters Did they have a deadline to meet This could have been so much better very dissappointing.

    Meh, predictable generic type fallen angel falls in love with human and saves the world stuff Nothing surprising in this one, but it was good for insomnia

    Read this for Heaving Bosoms Not bad enough to be good, mostly just predictable and moralistic And song quotes forced in with a crowbar Read this for Heaving Bosoms Not bad enough to be good, mostly just predictable and moralistic And song quotes forced in with a crowbar

    Das Cover finde ich wirklich, wirklich schrecklich Und ich frage mich, was man sich dabei gedacht hat, es auszuw hlen Denn es wird in diesem Buch weder mit Schwertern gek mpft, noch laufen die Protagonisten oben ohne herum Unter anderen Umst nden h tte ich das Buch nie in die Hand genommen und ich kann mich wirklich nicht erinnern, wie es berhaupt in mein Regal gekommen ist aber da mir eben noch ein Engel Buch gefehlt hat, habe ich es gelesen.Meine Erwartungen waren eben aufgrund des C Das Cover finde ich wirklich, wirklich schrecklich Und ich frage mich, was man sich dabei gedacht hat, es auszuw hlen Denn es wird in diesem Buch weder mit Schwertern gek mpft, noch laufen die Protagonisten oben ohne herum Unter anderen Umst nden h tte ich das Buch nie in die Hand genommen und ich kann mich wirklich nicht erinnern, wie es berhaupt in mein Regal gekommen ist aber da mir eben noch ein Engel Buch gefehlt hat, habe ich es gelesen.Meine Erwartungen waren eben aufgrund des Covers sehr niedrig Umso berraschter war ich, dass ich zwischen den Buchdeckeln eine wirklich gute, spannende Geschichte verbringt, die mich fesseln und berzeugen konnte.Im Mittelpunkt steht Matthew, einst ein Engel, nun seit knapp 2000 Jahren aus dem Himmel versto en, der sich mehr oder weniger nur herumtreibt, Bourbon liebt und mit gefakten Exorzismen den Menschen das Geld aus der Tasche zieht Doch auf einmal ist alles nicht mehr nur Show und die Welt muss gerettet werden.Die geschieht dann mehr oder weniger mithilfe von Natalia, der Managerin eines Rockstars, dem der Erfolg zu Kopf gestiegen zu sein scheint Er selbst sagt, er habe seine Seele dem Teufel verkauft, um Erfolg zu haben aber das ist nat rlich nur ein PR Gag Oder Nat rlich wird versucht, w hrend des Buches Spannung aufzubauen und den Leser auf falsche F hrten zu f hren, aber das hat bei mir nicht geklappt Mir war schnell klar, wie alles zusammenh ngt sogar noch vor dem Engel und der Managerin Aber das ich hier nicht mehr berrascht wurde, hat mich nicht wirklich gest rt.Eher genervt war ich, dass Natalia teilweise schon sehr naiv ist und sich manchmal etwas komisch verh lt gerade in Bezug auf ihre Gef hle Aber auch das war jetzt nicht so schlimm, dass sie mich als Protagonistin gar nicht berzeugen konnte.Positiv anzumerken ist auch, dass es zwar eine Liebesgeschichte gibt, diese oder Sex aber nicht im Mittelpunkt steht Vom Cover har h tte ich da wirklich etwas anderes erwartet, war aber froh, dass ich mich letztendlich get uscht habe.Insgesamt ist die Geschichte rund, es gibt auch einige witzige Passagen und ich wurde gut unterhalten Ich muss wirklich aufh ren, B cher nach ihrem Cover zu beurteilen Von mir gibt es 4 Sterne

    I gave this my customary 50 pages that i give every book If by 50 pages the story hasn t gripped me I put it away These characters are bland Natalia was stupid and boring Matthew, for having so much history and being a previous angel, was also uninteresting And a bit immature At 50 pages i decided I didn t care what happened to the story or characters So, I won t be finishing it.

    I picked up this book because I like Margaret Weis work with Dragonlance I found the plot to be promising, the idea of a rock star being possessed by the devil is always fun Then of course the wayward angel Matthew Gallow who has been on earth too long and numbs his pain with bourbon is all theinteresting, but since it is nothing but pulp romance philosophy goes no deeper than a few properly placed Grateful Dead and Beatles lyrics To avoid spoilers I will not go into detail of the main I picked up this book because I like Margaret Weis work with Dragonlance I found the plot to be promising, the idea of a rock star being possessed by the devil is always fun Then of course the wayward angel Matthew Gallow who has been on earth too long and numbs his pain with bourbon is all theinteresting, but since it is nothing but pulp romance philosophy goes no deeper than a few properly placed Grateful Dead and Beatles lyrics To avoid spoilers I will not go into detail of the main plot I found the relationship that was the focus of the story seemed forced, and a lot of suspended belief needed to be taken The plot could have gone into much greater depths of character turmoil and just plain questions about faith and religion Instead of tiredly quoting the Beatles Love is all We Need for the moral of the story It feelslike a starting point for our cultural moment than a finished product of thought.I loved the imagery of a wayward angel acting as a priest exorcising a rock star who sold his soul to the devil This is a great image and idea, but it does not live up to the Faustian catalog I do so love It does not stand up in execution and craft to the likes of Goethe, Thomas Mann, or Washington Irving This is where I garner my biggest disappointment with the book personally The Faustian motif when I was a German student one of my favorites To see it watered down and botched so thoroughly in the philosophical aspects bothers me the most It saddens me to see such a rich literary theme condensed to paranormal romance, among the the depths of Twilight and off shot vampire diaries.I am disappointed to a lesser extent that the author Weis let her daughter piggy back on her successes and put her name on this rather pale and bland romance novel I love the Dragons of Autumn twilight trilogy and world of Krynn Not to mention the chronicles of Raistlin and his pursuits of power I found himscary in those books than the depiction of Satan and his minions of darkness in this urban fantasy So much lacking in delivery is my final note on this book considering Weis past work If you buy into this current paranormal romance stuff of the moment, then this may hold your attention long enough Dragonlance had its own songs and poems, you could have at least wrote out the lyrics of the constantly referenced song Possession the rock star Cain sings through the book
