A HELLSBANE BOOK - Book One - by Paige Cuccaro
Emma Jane Hellsbane just found out she’s not human—or, at least, not only human. She’s half angel, too, and now Heaven’s got a job for her: round up all the Fallen angels and their red-skinned, horned devil-demon minions and boot their butts back into the abyss. Only problem? The demons and their Fallen masters fight back…and they don’t fight fair.
Luckily for Emma, she can put a stop to the constant threat of having her head hacked off if she figures out which Fallen angel is her father—and then kill him before he kills her. Of course, in the meantime, she’ll have to avoid accidentally seducing her angelic mentor, help an old friend conquer his own Fallen sperm donor, and basically save the world from a cataclysmic divine smack down.
No one said being Heaven’s bounty hunter would be easy. But with a name like Hellsbane, Emma Jane was born for the job.
I wasn't too sure what to expect going into a novel that was about a half angel demon fighter who has the ability to feel others emotions a psychic if you will, who has made a living with this ability, but I am so glad I read this book, wow, Right from the very first chapter this book caught my attention right to the very last page. Paige Cuccaro created a cast of characters I really enjoyed and felt connected with. Tommy the ever high school dreamy guy everyone wishes to have as a boyfriend, I really liked Tommy. Eli, the hottest Angel I've seen yet, Emma just doesn't know what to feel around him, but yet he is also her trainer. Emma, she is hot in her own right and has guys falling for her all over the place. Emma is having a hard time adjusting to her new life, one day she is just an ordinary psychic living her life day to day in her Grandmothers house, until the day when Tommy bursts through the door and brings with him a mailman demon, talk about going postal lol. So when Emma picks up Tommy's sword to help him cause the demon's kicking his butt, she has now been branded and can only be released when she kills her real father a Fallen Angel. Liam is introduced at the start of the book, I really liked his character, he was very funny.
The story is well played out, it was action packed all the way through the book, I was so sad when Eli was telling the story of his past love to Emma Jane, it makes you wish it had of turned out a different way. I love it when a book takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride, which is exactally what Hellsbane did to me. I was absolutely crushed when something happened that I can't reveal, NO Spoilers, you must read this one for yourself. Emma Jane's character is awesome, I loved her character, I can't wait to read more in the next book of this incredible series.
I recommend this most awesome book to all and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!!! Enjoy!!!
