REVIEW: FALLEN TEARS BY SARAH J. PEPPER



Blurb:


An √©lite club of shamed angels – the Fallen – welcomes disgraced super-naturals, like me. Defiant and vengeful, we’re catalysts in destruction and mayhem, much to our angelic adversaries’ dismay. Satisfying the void left in our soulless bodies motivates many Fallen to play with feeble humans. For even though we wield infernal-powers, they have one thing we crave.

Souls.

As a Fallen, an infinite number of days lay before me – if I choose. The Big Man upstairs always gives us a choice. I can accept my fate and perish, or consume a human’s soul and live. The last one I devoured glows like a firefly inside my chest. One day, it’ll flicker and fade into darkness. The Archangels who cast me from heaven would claim victory in the everlasting battle we wage, unless I consume another.

My next victim? A young man with ridiculously enticing lips. Gorgeous doesn’t define his otherworldly appearance. His vogue hairstyle accentuates his sky-blue eyes. His laugh echoes in my ears. His perfect smile is burned to memory. The undeniable urge to consume his soul unveils my wicked inhibitions. I want him… his soul. One problem – he’s protected by a Guardian angel. 

 

 Review:

Fallen Tears is a sweet romance centered around a fallen angel, Miriam. In finding her latest mark, she encounters a set of circumstances that are beyond the ordinary. This boy, Lincoln, holds the potential to free her from damnation. The question is if she is willing to take the steps to become mortal.

I found the story to be a reasonably quick read. The plot line was interesting, and I found myself rooting for the fallen angel. Wait. Are they supposed to be the bad guys? Well, yes and no. Even a fallen angel is allowed to repent.I liked this book. Being familiar with Scripture is a plus, but a number of the quotes are referenced by book, chapter, and verse. I believe the American King James Bible was the reference for these. I mean, this is a book about angels. You have to expect some quotes.

The romance is sweet and the language isn't anything to worry about. I can safely recommend this one for any age group and would call it safe for work. Unless some Nosy Nancy peeping over your shoulder has a problem with Christianity, there shouldn't be any issues. I look forward to seeing more from Sarah Pepper in the future.




About the Author:
I specialize in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn't only filled with hugs, kisses, bunnies, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn't always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn't mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit?
