Summary from Goodreads:
Lisa's choice has been made. She's living her dream and couldn't be happier. Then as news comes to shed light on her happily ever after, a series of events are set in motion. Some want to claim what is rightfully theirs, others want to mold it in a positive light.

Alex feels the demon inside of him growing stronger, day by day. Will he be strong enough to keep it at bay, or will he lose himself to the darkness? A new demon comes into Alex and Lisa's life who seems to have every intention of destroying them, but do they know what their intentions truly are?

Lisa will discover who is an ally and who is the enemy, but will she discover it in time to save Alex from his own self destruction? When she finally understands what's happening to her, will she lose herself and everyone she love or will she seek redemption and accept what she has become?



Alex flies above the trees he’s found marked by demons. He lands just outside the blackened ground and takes a few steps, examining the singed soil. He squats down and holds his palm just over the earth, feeling the area still warm. The sound of bark cracks next to him and he looks towards the tree a few feet away. The sludge seeping down the trunk appears to still be fresh. A few dead leaves float to the ground in front of him. His eyes follow a pattern making its way up the tree as death works its way through it to the core, blackening and killing it.

He takes a few steps back and walks around the other side of the blackened ground and finds he is not too far from where he and Lisa were just sitting. “Spying on us. Outstanding,” he mumbles. He lifts himself back into the air and makes his way back over to where Lisa stands. His wings shift in the air and he finds Lisa still standing in the same place where he left her. He can see concern and fear on her face. He takes a few steps forward and tilts his head, watching her like a predator watching its prey.

She crosses her arms over her chest and feels a slight shiver touch her skin. “Alex?” she whispers. Fear creeps inside of her and her eyes scan the area, seeing nothing but the trees and vegetation. She whines softly to herself and backs up against a tree.

He steps closer towards her and reaches out to touch her, then lowers his hand. The demon inside of him wants to claim her here in the woods, wanting to make her his over and over again. The desire to grab and thrust against her, to claim her body and take her soul pulses through his body. He presses the palms of his hands to his eyes and suppresses the demon inside of him. A long sigh leaves his lips and this is all Lisa needs to know he’s near.

“Alex?” She whispers, looking side to side.

Alex uncloaks himself and appears in front of her, his eyes black and wings still extended.

She screams, “DAMMIT!” then jumps back, lifting a hand to her heart. “You scared the shit out of me! What the hell?”

“I’m sorry, I didn’t intend to.” He steps closer to her, pulling his wings into his back. “Come here.” Alex reaches for her hands and pulls her to him. He forces the fire inside of him to extinguish to a dull simmer. He cups her face and looks at her.

She lifts her gaze and her breath catches in her throat. It’s not often Alex allows his true form to emerge so freely in front of her. Her hands lift and rest on his forearms. “It’s okay now. You… startled me is all,” she sighs and relaxes. “Was there something out there? Are we alone?”

Alex watches her and feels her anxiety ease up and her heartbeat slow. He steps closer and leans in to kiss her forehead. “We are alone… for now.” He closes his eyes and swallows hard, then looks down at her again. Lust, longing and sex burn at the forefront of his mind. He grits his teeth and pushes them back. “But I think someone is here. Let’s get back to the cabin.” Lisa nods, then lifts up onto her toes and kisses him.

Alex growls softly and his eyes stare into hers, then he kisses her again with more intent. The lust encompasses him and he thrusts it towards her. She embraces his body and gasps. She leans into him and whimpers softly, gripping his shoulders tighter. His hands move to her hips and he pulls himself closer. Lisa feels herself stepping back as he presses against her. She moves her hands around his neck and feels his wings against her hands. She lifts her fingers and they move between the downy feathers. Alex lets out a soft growl at her touch.

She immediately retracts her fingers and breaks the kiss. “I’m sorry."

He shakes his head and tells her, “Don’t stop.” She finds a soft hue of red glowing around him. He presses his lips to hers again and she closes her eyes. He deepens the kiss with his tongue massaging hers and a soft moan leaves her lips. Without hesitation, she moves her fingers into his wings again.

Alex pushes Lisa against the tree. “Alex…” she mumbles against his lips. Her fingers dig into his shoulders and she bites his bottom lip.

He answers her with another growl, but this time he grabs one of her legs and wraps it around his waist.

**My Thoughts**

Note: This review contains no spoilers

I am such a nerd for stories of Angels and Demons and the never-ending conflict between Heaven and Hell. Redemption is the sequel to Fallen, which pretty much lays out who our characters are and the setting of the story. Essentially, Fallen should be read before reading Redemption. Julie Morgan wrote such well thought out characters that I fell in love with Alex and Lisa, and their journey of love...especially since he's a fallen angel, now a hybrid, and Lisa is expecting. Starting a life together has brought on other dangers for our two main characters, which tests there strength individually and together. This brings on a whole new twist of the classic battle between Angels and Demons. Julie's use of words to describe the actions of Angels and Demons was fascinating...leaving me with a "whoa" reaction. In Redemption, Lisa and Alex has grown as an individual and as a couple since Fallen.

This is in no way lagging in pace, with the well developed characters and the third person point of view which I really enjoyed. With a sense that a narrator is telling the story, all character's point of views flow with the story. It was refreshing to read a book told in this point of view since many books that I have read recently are told in the first person point of view. Although I loved the story, it was written beautifully, but the word "chuckles," to me, was used a lot. It didn't bother me too much since I was too immersed into Alex and Lisa's story and their plight, but it was noticed.

The Chronicles of Fallen Series is definitely one to not miss especially if your a fan of the paranormal genre that involves Angels and Demons, the battle between Heaven and Hell.
