In a world where angels rule over humans, twelve outcasts dare to defy expectation, warring with their angel brethren to prevent the extinction of humankind.

They are The Fallen.

Michael is one of twelve angels who have been outcast due to their determination to protect humankind. In order to preserve his immortality and strength, he must find a mate with angel blood. Eva Smyth has never believed the propaganda spouted by the Consortium—the elite system of guards put into place once angels took over reign of Earth—but she never expected to learn the angels plan to eradicate all of humankind, or that she herself is part angel. Joining Michael means living a life on the run, at war against the angels and hunted by the Consortium. Eva must decide whether to risk it all…for love of an angel.

Review: You may think you know about angels, but you have no idea. Ms. Rosalie has created a world of angels unlike any I’ve ever read, and I loved every second of it! The winged ones are anything but friendly when the veil between there world and ours breaks. They take over the earth, and life as we knew it ceased to exist. They build their high towers, and use their security team to enforce their rules. Human is life is left up to chance with a lottery dictating your career path, and your home. The tension in the air is tangible, and the atmosphere has like a powder keg waiting to explode, and our heroine Eva is stuck smack dab in the middle. Eva has her own doubts about the way things are run, but with no family and no options there’s nothing she can do.

When our hero Michael shows up in her apartment one stormy night her life is turned completely upside down. He’s nothing like she thought they would be. Angels aren’t supposed to be humorous, kind or attracted to humans. She’s terrified of the angel at first. Michael is what her Mother would call,’ Sex on a stick’, and the attraction between them is too easy to lose herself in. When someone see’s the fallen angel at her house she’s thrust headlong into a war she had never knew existed.

Rosalie has a talent for sculpting, shaping and molding her environment. Her take was fresh , and I loved the mix of intrigue, and passion. Her skill for details and witty dialogue delivered a sense of realism that solidifies the myth and mayhem that surrounds the romance. She took her time building up the relationship, exposing their flows and making us fall in love with Eva and Michael. Once I started this book I was unable to put it down, and I recommend it to anyone whose looking for a romance with real substance. I’ve got my eyes open for the next in this series, Ms. Rosalie, keep up the excellent work.
