Summary

New York Times best-selling author Gena Showalter returns with a sizzling Angels of the Dark tale about a winged warrior renowned for his ruthlessness, and the woman who becomes his obsession....

A tormented past has left Thane with an insatiable need for violence, making him the most dangerous assassin in the skies. He lives by a single code: no mercy. And as he unleashes his fury on his most recent captor, he learns no battle could have prepared him for the slave he rescues from his enemy's clutches - a beauty who stokes the fires of his darkest desires. Elin Vale has her own deep-rooted scars, and her attraction to the exquisite warrior who freed her challenges her every boundary. But Thane's unwavering determination to protect her means she must face her greatest fears - and enter a world in which passion is power, and victory means breathtaking surrender.

I am a puzzle and you are my piece.

Gena Showalter always gives a story full of action, adventure, romance, sex, friendship and humor. I enjoyed this book, but it wasn't without its flaws. I wasn't always a fan of Thane's. Not that I didn't like him, I just didn't like all the stuff he did even after Elin came into the picture. Like Pain's book from LOU series, Thane's sex life was disturbing. I understand why he was like that, I just don't have to like it. Luckily when he gets together with Elin it wasn't a BDSM session. My other problem with this book is I sometimes couldn't tell when Elin was speaking or having an inner dialog in her head and at times I was amazed she would say certain stuff, then I realized she was only thinking it. This of course could have been fixed it the narrator had altered her voice for her inner self. I have always enjoyed Max Bellmore, he has a sexy voice.

Wow! Unexpectedly cute✨ ~

The book was richly detailed and placed you in all the action. It was like violence, revenge mixed with cuteness love and hilarious moments. I saw some of the reviews before purchasing; and think people expected erotica book. Wrong. It's a great book. 👍🏼 One I would recommend to anyone who likes action and humor. At least, from my point of view. 💖✨

EXCITING, NON STOP ACTION & A GREAT ROMANCE

This is the 3rd book in the Angels Of The Dark series about charismatic Winged Warriors who travel between the Natural and Spirit Worlds fighting Demons, making enemies and falling in love and technically it follows on from GS's brilliant LOU series but each book could be stand alone listen.

Thane is one of the Winged Warriors and he has been captured and held as a sex slave by an evil Phoenix woman until he is rescued by a quiet, gentle, abused human slave called Elin Vale but she has a terrible secret that could destroy their budding relationship. He has to battle his enemies, his mental Demons from the past and conquer his hatred of all Phoenix or lose the one he loves.

Thane is a great Hero, he's kind, loyal and thoughtful to the ones he loves, sexy and strong but he is also full of revenge, anger and is very unpredictable. He, and his two friends, were enslaved and brutally tortured in Hell but they survived and have a special bond which brings brotherhood and humor to the listen. And he also has some beautiful emotional words for Elin.

Worth a credit? When it comes to PNR Gena Showalter is a master craftsman at detailed world and complex character building and writes exciting plots filled with supernaturals and there's a good balance between the action, suspense and adventure and the undercurrent of passion by a nicely developed romance. There's humor, sex, edge of your seat tension and great supernatural secondary characters including a couple of Angels with sub plots of their own. Great narration as ever by Max Bellmore. So, if you're a PNR lover like me, it all adds up to a very enjoyable and creditworthy listen.

Shocked at how good it was!!!

Well I normally don't listen to men read but this one I took a chance on and I got to tell you I was highly entertained!! The story line was wonderful and you had plenty of time to get to know the characters and also I would've never guessed but this was a slow romance,not that have sex the first time the two come together but it was a more of a suspense development of a relationship with each other romance that keep you on your toes teasing you! It's a slow teaser in the worst way but it keeps you wondering what is gonna happen next...I totally recommend this book I can't even begin to really explain how so good it is,it's spicy yet sweet romance is mouthwatering and it's cuss friendly for those that want to enjoy a good book without all that distasteful cussing. 20 stars to the narrator and the book the man who read it really brought the characters too life I highly recommend!!! I have to say also that it's ridiculously funny...a book with a sense of humor!

The Best! Gimme More Thane!

I was anxiously awaiting the listen of Burning Dawn. I was particularly interested to see if Thane's dark desires were tamed to the point where listening was bearable as he was described as a downright sadist. I'm not into sadists!

Knowing his history and the why behind the what painted a very clear picture of who he was and why he was. I consider him a virgin to true desire. And listening to him discover just what pleasure was when he runs in to one of my favorite heroines of this series was definitely worth it!

Elin is spunky, strong, and just a great female character to listen to. She learns to not let her past define her and becomes, to me, a role model for Thane. Overcoming fears.

Really adored this book. Listened to this through the Romance Package and I'm loathe to remove it from my library. I may just buy this one for true keeps!

Max does as excellent job narrating!

I truly wish Gena will pick up with this series again. It doesn't seem as though she is going to complete what was started with Xerxes and Bjorn. I really want their stories!

A+ for the love scenes... my, my, MY Thane!
A+ for the story and undeniable chemistry between the H&H.

Find out Thane's downfall

This book took me awhile to get through. Probably because I was doing the audiobook rather than actually reading it. First let me say that the audiobook was superb. I love Max Bellmore as a narrator so much. Honestly if anyone else did this series I would probably never want to listen to it. So far this is the final book in the Angels of the Dark series and I hope that there will be more. There are so many characters that need a story. Specifically Xerxes and Bjorn. Seriously we learned more about them in this book and they need an HEA too! Though not a necessary read for fans of the Lords of the Underworld series it is a must for any fan of Gena Showalter. We also get to see the females for the Lords in this book as well when they meet Elin. Don't miss this exciting novel and find out what is Thane's downfall.

Burning Dawn- Dark Angels

I decided to listen to the audio of this book I had reviewed several years ago. I really enjoyed the book when I first read it and gave it a favorable review. I found this narrator to be terrible at doing the angels and women’s voices. Thane’s voice in particular was so disappointing I almost stopped after the first few chapters. Overall though it’s a great story and worth the listen. Hopefully the author will continue the series as it’s been several Years and it’s still incomplete.
