Review: Wicked Nights by Gena Showalter

Wicked Nights is the first book in the Angels of The Dark series by Gena Showalter and a Paranormal Romance from HQN.


Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed nearly too dangerous, too ruthless-and if he isn't careful, he'll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice will not be deterred from his missions, at any cost...until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he's never known before. 

Accused of a crime she did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival, but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation-or her ultimate damnation?

My thoughts:

Following the death of his brother Zacharel lost what little emotion he possessed.  Now the ice cold angel leads the most powerful army in the heavens - but not by choice.

Zacharel and his band of warrior angels have been given one last chance to prove that they understand the importance of human life.  If they can’t come to terms with that - understand that they are to protect humanity no matter what - they will lose their wings.

Annabelle Miller has not seen the outside world in four years.  Accused of a crime she did commit and locked away with the criminally insane, Annabelle hangs on to her own sanity by a very thin thread.

When Zacharel meets Annabelle is instantly confused.  He can’t understand why he feels like he should help this human female?  But help her, he does.

What neither know is that this meeting has long been in the works.  Zacharel has an enemy - an enemy on a mission - and that mission includes Zacharel’s death...

Wicked Nights is an amazing read.  I love Gena Showalter’s writing.  Her world building and characters come alive on the page.

I give Wicked Nights 5 out of 5 stars.
