5.0 out of 5 stars New Orleans.. The Crescent City.. 29 November 2016
By Michelle Robinson Shealy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"When he reflected on his outward impression, Alec wasn't sure how he appeared to the predators he killed. They always cowered, looking on him with horror and terrorized by what they saw, but still, he didn't know how he looked in that form. He still felt like a man when he destroyed them. An angry man, but a man all the same. Those he protected saw......"

In the city of New Orleans there is a man, Alec. He appears fairly average. To the victims of horrible crimes he is an angel. To the evil perpetrators he is a beast, sent by God to deliver them to hell.

Vivien Simon is a local reporter. When she gets wind of an angel that victims claimed to have seen, she becomes involved for the hunt to Alec's identity. Vivien is able to help the victims and the police in a new way. This story was so unique and mesmerizing, I couldn't read fast enough.

Will Alec remain unidentifiable, except to his family? Will he continue to walk the streets of the "Crescent City" as a savior for the good, and punisher of the evil?

What a great read! I didn't know before reading this book, that New Orleans was also nicknamed the "Crescent City." I look forward to more in this series. What kind of life will Alec have with those he loves, and the secrets he must keep?

3.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing 4 April 2015
By Teri Elise - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The concept of a protector/punisher wrapped in one gorgeous male was intriguing. The story has good bones, but sometimes read like a documentary. The characters (and there's quite a few) could've been a little more developed, but what we do know of them leads me to want more information, more emotion. Fortunately, the mystery of Alec Winter kept my interest until I'd read the whole book in a day.

Chassis has done it again. She is an excellent writer with the ability to keep everyone reading her books now and into the future. The subject and main character is so believable that he makes you think there are angels here on earth right here and now

4.0 out of 5 stars Very intense book 5 August 2016
By Shodog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was a good one that I received for a review. But that being said I liked the premise behind the books but would have liked a little more development of the characters. I read the book in one sitting. I did not like the use of some of the cuss words. Most were OK but some I just have an aversion to. But that is just me. I will read the next book because the ending was just too abrupt. It left too many things hanging. I loved the fact that our hero was not only an Angel but a Demon too. I do not usually care for Christian novels but this was very good!

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book

This was a rather interesting book but in a good way, though I kind of felt like I was still meeting the characters by the end of it. I don’t think the story really focused too much on the characters and that’s probably why I feel the way I feel.

The descriptions about what the people were being saved from was so detailed, I was actually a little uncomfortable reading it but it did help with kind of understanding what the victims were going through. Also, I do wish that some of that detail had been used when describing the characters. Not pages of what they looked like but something to make them more memorable.

I also kind of wish that more time had been spent on what happened to Alec, I feel like it happened and it was just accepted. That’s one of the reasons I was able to finish The Summoned King because instead of just going with it, he tried to figure the magic out.

I also kind of feel that the first two incidents were so detailed that it took away from the ending, made it less thrilling. It just seemed anti-climactic.

The cover is eye catching, though maybe not enough to get me to read the blurb if I was passing by and noticed it and the pace was a nice steady one, making the story flow.

This is a book that shows the very worst in people and I would not recommend this for any kind of light reading and I don’t know if I would recommend this to people who have survived this kind of thing but, it is a good book so, I would recommend this to people who are…I guess into this genre of people getting what they deserve. Not for the faint of heart.
