Right from the off i knew i was going to love this story about Zacharel and Annabelle, there was sparks between the pair when they first met,but Annabelle's strong character along with Zacharel's ment they did not get along together at first and there was lots of demons standing in there way of true happiness.
Loved that she was kickass, fighting all the Demons that she thought only she could see until she met Zacharel and he was fighting the demons also.He was grumpy,serious and had never felt any emotions in his life but all that was about to change when these pair got together.
There was sexual tension between the pair until they realized that they was made for each other,and had to make lots of hard choices to be together.
There was lots of hot alpha males in this book so i am hoping the other Angels get there storys as well,looking forward to the next book in this fab series.
The book is about Zacharel who we discovered in The Darkest Seduction now has snow falling from his wings and we find out in this book that it is to show the Deity's displeasure in his actions as he has not been valuing human life when that human happens to be possessed by a Demon. Zacharel has been put in charge of his own army of Angels all of whom have been in the Deity's bad books for one reason or another and all who have one year to prove that they are in fact worth saving and keeping as Angels rather than letting them fall and lose their wings. We then meet the love interest of Zacharel in the form of Annabelle who witnessed her parents brutal murder at the hands of a Demon and who then was imprisoned for the crime as no-one believed that a Demon killed them. Annabelle has been locked up in an insane asylum and has regular visits from Demons there who have been sent to try and hurt her but that no-one else (human) can see and therefore she is obviously deemed as more nuts than ever. Zacharel and his army are sent to find out why a whole load of Demons are permanently based outside the insane asylum trying to get in and after slaughtering them all Zacharel discovers the reason is Annabelle and that she is marked as a Demon's consort. Zacharel for some reason is intrigued in her and rescues her from the asylum and so starts Annabelle's battle to find out what Demon ruined her life and why and Zacharel finding himself more and more drawn to Annabelle decides to help her.
I must admit I did sort of guess the end result of the Demon and why etc he had marked Annabelle as his consort from reasonably early on in the book but that having been said I really enjoyed this book and Gena has opened the series up for the other Angels which I assume will have their own staring role in their own books in due course and as a avid Gena fan I will definitely be reading them. If you like Gena then I think you will like this new offering from her despite what some of the other reviews may say but then again every one is entitled to their own opinion and I'll leave you to decide for yourself but I really enjoyed it.
Wicked Night's is the first book in the ANGELS OF THE DARK series, a spin-off of the LORDS OF THE UNDERWORLD, Where we 1st met Zacharel (angel), the hero of this book, he starts off in this a little cold-hearted and ruthless, Zacharel is in danger of losing his wings and falling to earth. As punishment, his Deity (boss) has made him lead a group of misfit outcast angels who are also in danger of falling, They are made to protect humanity against demons. If one of the Angels kills a human during the battle, Zacharel is punished for it. If Zacharel can't get his army to listen and follow him, they are all could end up falling. the problam is none of the angels think much of us humans that is untill Zacharel finds Annabelle Miller tied to a gurney in the mental asylum he and his Angels are told to go and protect from the demons attacking it, Annabelle, saw her parents killed on her 18th birthday by a demon and no one belived her so she was locked up for their murder and has been at the asylum for the last four years, being abused by the doctor there, and constant attacks by other demons, but she fights them and the doctors and never gives up hope she will get free.
Zacharel and Annabelle are great together there is some funny one-liners from Annabelle to Zacharel as he has never felt emotion or desire before meeting Annabelle, Zacahrel makes Annabelle feel safe and protected which is what she wants more than anything. because Annabelle was sexualy abused in the asylum, the sex scences were slower and not as much to them as some of Gena Showalters other books, but the chemistry and the story was great so it is not missed and given Annabelles past and Zacharel's lack of emotions it was totaly understandable .
I loved the other angels in Zacharel's army. Koldo's book is next in February 2013. and I am dying to know what happend to the three tortured Angles.
also a great big bonus for this book is Paris and a few of the other Lords and thier ladies make a short appearance to help Zacharel and the book is better for them as it was great to see them all doing their lord thing!
this had a great twist at the end too, so great story great characters and a great start to what is looking like a great series cant wait for book 2 .
UPDATE: I did end up reading the others in the series (once a Gena fan, always a Gena fan). The sequels were definitely better than this one, though it was nice to see Annabelle and Zacharel pop up every so often in the other books too.
