Product description

Product Description

The fallen have trespassed into Heaven for the first time in eternity. Prepared for battle, Michaela and her Archangels open Heaven’s gates to confront the fallen. Only, Michaela’s Archangels—her brothers and sisters in Heaven—betray her. And when the fallen attack the sanctuary in the skies through the gates Michaela inadvertently left open, the holy angels accuse Michaela of planning the invasion.

One simple mistake with a thousand consequences.

Dragged to Earth by an Archangel turned fallen, Michaela will do anything to return to Heaven and save it. In her fervor, she kills the Archangel—something no angel has ever done before. Wingless, without any hope, Michaela welcomes death when an unlikely human ally, Clark, finds her. With the help of Clark and Gabriel, an innocent Archangel whose friendship deepens into something far more torrid and unexpected on Earth, Michaela must prove the holy angels have their own plan for Heaven, and it is one that may prove to be the End of the Days.

It may be too late to save herself, but Michaela is the only one who knows the truth about the holy angels. If she fails, she may never be able to return to Heaven. But even that may be a hopeless dream.

5.0 out of 5 stars intense and then some 27 February 2015

The Hunted One is the beginning to what promises to be an amazing series. Michaela is the leader of the archangels - the highest choir of angels in heaven. Along with the other archangels, she is trusted with protecting Heaven from the fallen along with watching out for humans on earth. For the first time in forever the fallen appear in purgatory just outside of heaven. Michaela and her archangels go to confront them, when Michaela makes two horrible mistakes. One leaving the gates of heaven open while she goes to drive the fallen back. And more damaging, trusting her fellow archangels. Betrayed by her friends Michaela is overpowered and dragged to earth while the fallen have free reign to attack heaven. To make matters worse the other choirs of angels believe that Michaela actually was in on the plan and betrayed heaven. Now broken and wingless, Michaela is in deep trouble. She must clear her name, safe the other archangels who did not fall but who are now on the run (including Gabriel who is imprisoned in Hell!) and prevent the end of days. All this with only the human Clark, one of the Descendants of Enoch. She is running out of time and obstacles just continue to build.

First off let me just say this is not your typical angels and demons story. Good is not always good and bad is well lets just say it is complicated. The world that Meg Collett creates is so involved and so intense, it just gets more and more intriguing with each page that you turn. I was utterly captivated by this, often unwilling to put it down. I know that some other reviewers have mentioned that this might start off a little slowly but I disagree. So much happens in the first chapter, that a big initial chunk of the book is spent dealing with the ramifications of those first few pages. And a lot of the that has to do with the emotional landscape of the characters first and foremost. We really get a chance to see the devastation that Michaela’s psyche experiences and I think that makes us more anxious for the events that happen later in the book.

Collett does a wonderful job drawing us into her characters - particularly Michaela and Clark. Michaela’s hurt is so visceral, so poignant that you ache for her. You want to see her strong again, need for her to find a way to overcome everything. I was really intrigued by her relationship with Gabriel and I cannot wait to see where that will go. I was often shocked by Gabriel’s constant mood changes, which often seemed more dramatic when compared to the really introspective nature that is Michaela. Gabriel is so -- passionate and every time we see him we see a completely different aspect of his character. But it works - it makes sense, and it surprisingly really pushes the story forward. And Clark….oh my goodness Clark is such a brilliant character. He is absolutely hysterical and adorable. At the same time I think that there are so many layers to him which we are just starting to see and I for one cannot wait to what becomes of him.

Just when you think that you have a handle on where the story is going something else is thrown in, another part of the mystery rears its head and you see just how complex this will become. I cannot wait to read the next chapter in this story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Review: From Author Unpublished 8 September 2014
By Cary Morton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Nitty Gritty: Cover? Gorgeous. Writing? Excellent. The narrative was clean, grammatically correct, and with the exception of one typo that I found, error-free. The imagery in this novel was outstanding, and I felt sucked into the story right away. The pace never lagged, and I never got lost or felt the need to skim.

I enjoyed this story immensely. I’m not a religious person… I can’t name off the arch angels in heaven or any of the mythos behind the Christian umbrella of faith, but I certainly enjoyed this foray into the fantastical world-building of Ms. Collett and the rich story-telling she built off of it. It’s almost a discredit to limit this book to the genre’s of New Adult Fantasy Romance, because there was a lot more to it than that. The Hunted One was a story of betrayal, politics, adventure, and mystery. There were bits of thriller and action, and yes, a little bit of romance, but also themes of tragedy and faith. I went into this story expecting a lovey-dovey paranormal book, and came away feeling like I’d read a gripping action/adventure tale filled with the battle of good vs. evil and true friendship.

The characters in the book were well-fleshed out and filled with depth. I especially enjoyed the hesitant friendship between Clark and Michaela. They were an odd pair, and often the friendship was skewed towards one side or the other, but their antics were both heartwarming and gut-wrenching at times. The two characters couldn’t be any more different, but they united in a way that was natural and didn’t feel forced.

The ending was powerful, and I don’t want to give too much away, but I’m looking forward to the next book in the series with baited breath. Would I recommend this book? Yes. Capital Y. Would I read it again? In a heartbeat. If you enjoy paranormal/fantasy fiction, action and adventure, and battles of good vs. evil, you’ll probably love this book. It wasn’t what I expected, but it turned out better than I’d hoped. Can’t wait for the next one!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 VERY STRONG HEAVENLY STARS!!!! 25 February 2014
By kimberly - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First things first! I was a bit apprehensive about reading this one. I have NEVER read an angel book before and this is not a genre I usually read in. With that being said... Meg Collett and THE HUNTED ONE has me freaking HOOKED! I gave this Book a STRONG 4.5 STARS!

Heaven, Hell, Earth, Archangels, Michaela, Gabriel, Lust and Deals with the Devil. This book has it all!

For the first time since Lucifer had his wings ripped from his body and was thrown from heaven as punishment he has returned. Michaela, General of heaven walked out the gates to confront the Fallen and protect Heaven from the enemy! She then realizes it was a trap. She made a huge mistake and left heaven's gates open. She soon realizes that her holy angels at her side and protectors of heaven had been seduced by Lucifer and his evil ways. They had set her up. They had turned on her. They broke her. Literally!

The Aethere were proclaiming that Michaela fell along with her holy angels and let Lucifer and the fallen into the gates purposefully. They decided the only way to protect Heaven was that they take charge. The hunt was on! Everything isn't what it seemed in this story of Heaven and Hell!

I LOVE the way this story was written. Michaela is the female general and Gabriel is the male counterpart. It will having you rooting for the good and praying for the end of the evil!! There will be times you will want to slap the crap out of Clark and throat punch The Aethere! And by the time you turn the last page you will be emailing Meg and begging her to get the editing done on the second book in this series THE LOST ONE!

The Hunted One (End of Days)

To anyone that has NOT read an angel book I highly recommend you start with this one!!! And to anyone that has read angel books before I suggest you end with this one! I freaking loved this book and cannot wait to find out if it will be The End Of Days for Heaven, Hell and Earth!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling 22 February 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on

This book was an amazing read. It’s one of those books that you just cannot put down. I was introduced to this book by the editor who is one of my friends. She could not stop raving about how amazing The Hunted One was so I had to buy it and read it to see if she was just bias to it or if the book was as amazing as she said. She was right to be raving about The Hunted One because this book is hands down one of the best paranormal books I have read in a long time. If you are into Paranormal and you need a new book to read I highly recommend this book!! I cannot wait for the second book in the series to be out!!!

The Hunted One is a new adult paranormal series, which follows the lives of Michaela, Clark, and Gabriel. Michaela is an Archangel and the General of Heaven. She makes a small simple mistake that causes her to get thrown down to Earth where her wings get ripped right out of her back and she has to fight to prove her innocence. Clark a Descendant who is to protect Angels finds Michaela after she was thrown from Heaven, Clark stays by Michaela’s side during the whole book while they try to prove that Michaela did not plan the attack on Heaven. Gabriel (the man created as Michaela’s true love) is sentenced to spend the rest of his life in Hell after Heaven was attacked and the Archangels lost their standing to the Aethere (another choir of Heaven angels).
4.0 out of 5 stars Great book about Angels! Wonderful action, mystery and with a touch of Romance. 16 October 2014

If you like Angel books and you want a new twist on them read this book it is wonderful!

The description of heaven was thorough and wonderful without being overly done.

Loved the angel pairs thing and how Michaela ( normally in angel books it would be Michael) was a female and the General of the Archangels of Heaven.

I did not think I was going to finish it or even like it that much.This book started out slow but pretty dramatic. And I just did not like Michaela. Towards the end I got pulled more into it and I really enjoyed the different take on the Heaven and Hell story and how she made the angels more flawed. I also started liking Michaela for her flaws and the fact that when s*** got tough she could have turned her back but she kept going ( even though she seemed to whine a lot).

I enjoyed learning about the Angel Hierarchy and what their roles are in heaven.

Clark was probably my favorite character. He had his issues but he pushed through them to be with Michaela. He was always by her side and I enjoyed reading about how their friendship grew.

I like that Michaela and Gabriel’s relationship was not perfect as it was suppose to be since they were paired. I’m looking forward to reading more and seeing what happens here. I’m kind of hoping Michaela leaves him be because honestly toward the end I did not like Gabriel but I suppose “Hell changes an angel” maybe

I’m hoping to see more of Loki and what his take is in all this. He seemed like a interesting character to me. I’m kind of hoping the end of the world happens so I can read more about the Horsemen.

So, you have the end of the world, crazy angel experiments which lead to some screwed up angels and the issue with who to trust and the grey area of what is right and what is wrong, the person she loves is in hell, some of her friends are backstabbers and some are being used as examples. And now the one person she can trust seems to have an alcohol issue and other issues of his own. What is not to like about this book! I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series and learning more about the Nephilim and The Watchers and what their part in all this is. I plan on starting book 2 tonight!
