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.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Exciting and Enchanting First Novel in a Promising New Series! 22 January 2014
By Stephanie Ward - Published on
'The Hunted One' is an exciting and enchanting first novel in a fresh New Adult fantasy/paranormal series. The book follows main character, Michaela, who is an Archangel in Heaven, until she is betrayed by fellow Archangels and thrown to Earth - stripped of her wings and powers. Those who betrayed Michaela and Heaven accuse Michaela of being the one who let the fallen angels inside of Heaven, causing an ethereal war. Although Michaela is forced to stay on Earth without her wings, she vows to do everything in her power to return to Heaven and reveal the truth about what happened, along with what she believes is the holy angel's own plan to take over Heaven and begin the End of Days. Along with her Archangel friend, Gabriel, who was also banished to Earth, and Clark - a human devoted to protecting the angels - the three will stop at nothing until the truth is revealed and everything restored to it's rightful place.

Although there are tons of books out there that are about angels and fallen angels, this one is a serious breath of fresh air into the genre, as well as pushing it even further by being a New Adult title. I loved the concept of the story and devoured every single detail that the author gave me about all the angels - holy and fallen - and about their histories, the end of days, Heaven, and everything else that the book centers around. I couldn't get enough of all the vivid descriptions and intricate details throughout the book and I really hope that we get more of the same in the next installment. Michaela is a kick-ass main character for the book. She's an Archangel and is basically in charge of keeping Heaven safe. When she gets betrayed by her fellow Archangels - those she loved and considered family - she has to gather her determination, strength, will, and intelligence in order to figure out the truth and find a way back to Heaven. Although she's such a strong lead character, she does have faults - which only seem to amplify the longer she's on Earth. I liked seeing her flaws because it made her feel more realistic and I could easily identify with her. The other two main characters in the story are Gabriel - a fellow Archangel banished to Earth, and Clark - a descendant of Enoch whose duty is to protect the angels. The three make a strange team at first, but they work together well and form a great dynamic. The story is actually told from varying viewpoints - those of Michaela, Gabriel, and Clark - which I believe adds a whole new level to the book. The reader gets to see into the minds and hearts of each of these characters in an intimate way that wouldn't be possible otherwise. The plot was full of action and even some romance along the way. There was a lot going on, but I didn't feel overwhelmed or confused at all. The pace was quick and I found myself eagerly reading to find out what was going to happen next. I have to admit that I definitely liked watching the relationship between Michaela and Gabriel change and grow - it was an added bonus to an already awesome story line. I highly recommend this book to fans of fantasy and paranormal, as well as those who enjoy angel and New Adult fiction. I'm already eagerly awaiting the next book in the series to be released!

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Unique Angel Story 9 June 2014
By Ashley - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book from the author and Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.
The Hunted One is book one in the End of Days Series.
Michaela is the General and leader of the Archangels and of heaven. One day the Fallen dared to approach the gates of heaven and Michaela made a mistake she will regret the rest of her life. Leaving the gates of heaven open, they fall under attack from the Fallen but the worst is yet to come when her own Archangels betray her. Stripped of everything she loves, she's left for dead. A descendent of a group tasked with helping angels on Earth discovers her. Clark keeps her hidden from the rest of the group when she's label a murdering traitor. The problem is it's true. Michaela tries to clear the name of the innocent Archangels who were punished for a crime they didn't commit. As she and Clark unravel the truth of what's really going on they uncover the sinister truth of the act behind Michaela's Archangels betrayal. Now they must not only fight to save themselves but everything they hold dear as enemies on all sides close in on them and nothing is as it seems and nothing will ever be the same again.
Loved it! The book was amazing. Right away I was pulled in with this new perspective of angels and heaven in hell. This book is unlike any other angel story and provides a unique and exciting look at the world of angels and Heaven and Hell.
The characters were so real and raw, I could see them and fell their struggles and pain. Michaela is a flawed character. She may be the General and leader of Archangels but she soon discovers her mistakes and finds humanity in the midst of her struggles on Earth. Clark is a solid character trying to do what he thinks is right. He stumbles and falls but ultimately he sticks to what he believes, making him a strong supporting character. Gabriel is Michaela's other half so to speak. He becomes so tortured and hurt because he cares so much for Michaela. Their relationship is strained but it's clear they care for each other.
The Hunted One was a rollercoaster ride of emotions, lies and nonstop action leaving me on the edge of my seat and reading into the wee hours of the morning. This is a book you will not want to put down. I can't wait till the next installment, The Lost One.
I recommend this book for any dark paranormal fantasy lovers who enjoy reading about heartfelt characters who are flawed and genuine with heart pounding action and sprinkles of romance that leave you begging for more. If you like books about angels with a little dark perspective you'll love this. Fans of Gena Showalter's Angels of The Dark Series are sure to enjoy this.
I give this book 5 fangs.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Hunted One 29 April 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I give this book 3.5 stars(would have given 4 stars if it picked up sooner)

I was giving this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book starts off REALLY slow for me but I'm glad that I stuck it out it is one of the best angel books I have read in a while. I love how Meg changed things up in her story like with the angel Michael is usually a guy but in this book he is a she ( Michaela), and Gabriel is a boy (love it). The story is about how Michaela has been betrayed, and how she fights to clear her name and save those she loves.
Michaela really gets the raw end of the deal in almost everything in this book. She just keeps getting knocked down. What really surprised me was how Mag made Michaela so emotional she brakes down a lot and at one time she completely shuts down. For a angel I kind of find that hard to believe but then again she is on Earth now and not in heaven. Gabriel in this book really rubbed me the wrong way! He is her other half the one created with her and he does nothing but put her down and it hurts her to her very soul. ( I wanted to kick his ass by the end of the book!!) At the end of the book Gabriel and Michaela kind of face off and let me tell you I was cheering Michaela on! I hated how all of the angels love to blame her for her mistakes even though she has protected them for so long.
Now on to my favorite character Clark :) He is part of a group of humans that work with the angels. He is the one that finds Michaela when she falls. He becomes her best friend. I love the stuff that comes out of his mouth lol he makes me laugh. Clark is there for Michaela even if he is scared and wants to run a way but he stands with her and shows her what it means to be a real friend. Everyone needs a friend like Clark he brings her up but also calls her on s*** when he thinks she is giving in. He is there for her no matter what she decides to do.
What really burns my butt is that none of the other angels will get up off there butts and look into whats going on they just follow blindly. I mean come on aren't angels suppose to be all knowing and stuff. And what angel would take the word of Lucifer!!! (you really shouldn't be a archangel if you believe the great deceiver) I am really hoping there is going to be another book after this and the way it ended I would say that that's whats going to happen. I can't wait to see what other things are in store for Michaela and Clark. There is more I could talk about but I don't want to give to much away all you dear reader need to know is that this book is awesome.

I knew from the moment I saw these covers that I needed to read this series. The Hunted did NOT disappoint. An engrossing tale, filled with emotion, turmoil, & suspense! The characters compel us
to soar on high and abruptly crash to the bottom most depths. Stupendously told! I enjoyed every minute of it, & can't wait to start book 2, The Lost One, next week!

5.0 out of 5 stars intense and then some 27 February 2015
By mike - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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.
