4 1/2 out of 5 Stars
WARRIOR OF HEAVEN
Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels-and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell-he's agreed to go where no angel has ever gone before...to steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself.
ANGEL OF HELL
Harvester is one of the Fallen, a once-heroic angel who sacrificed her wings to work as an undercover agent in hell. But now her cover has been blown, and she's been doomed to an eternity of agonizing torture. Even if Reaver can snatch her away from Satan's lair, even if they can fight their way out of the underworld's darkest depths, there is one thing Harvester can never escape-her newfound thirst for an angel's blood...
Reaver is the fifth book in the Lords of Deliverance series and tells the story of Reaver and Harvester, and oh what a story it is. I can't go into a lot of details, because I don't want to spoil the story for anyone else, but it is such a fantastic and epic love story.
Reaver and Harvester are two characters that I didn't really see getting together at first, but as the story progressed the author revealed more and more about the characters, I couldn't see them with anyone else. They are a couple that have went up against impossible odds, and just the sheer amount of adversity they face makes you want them to figure out a way to be together.I definitely recommend this book to fans of the Lords of Deliverance or Demonica series. Although I suppose it would be possible to read this book as a standalone, it is so much better to read this series from beginning to end. You will end up wishing you did otherwise.
The only problem that I really had with this book, and what kept me from giving it a full 5 stars, is that the beginning just felt really slow compared to the rest of the book. It felt like it took forever for them to get out of Sheoul. Once they are out the book picks up and it didn't slow back down, but the beginning could have been a tad quicker, in my opinion. All in all, the book surprised me even when I thought I had it all figured out and I do love that, and the story more than made up for any problems I had with it to begin with.
