Review: Broken Faith by Brandy Nacole

I have another review to post, for a paranormal romance that I read recently, and as stated in the title, is:

Broken Faith by Brandy Nacole

Because I want to be fair and in-biased when I let you know what you are getting into, here is the Goodreads synopsis of the novel:

"Kayson is a Fallen Angel who has spent decades running from the Hell Hounds while searching for something that no one else believes can be so, not even God. Kayson is determined to find a Blood Child. But when a hound finds Kayson first, he is sure his end has come.
Falon, Alpha of the Hell Hounds, destroyer of the blood children, and devoted believer in his master’s plan, is bound and determined to drag Kayson back to Hell with him.
Sabrina is a Vampire, a half-breed created from one of Lucifer’s original blood children. After years of hiding, Sabrina’s fate changes when she finds Kayson barely alive. Against her instincts, Sabrina saves him. Now she and Kayson are both marked by the Hell Hounds.
Emma is an ordinary human, whose only problem is making ends meet, and getting over the hurt caused by her untrustworthy brother. Her everyday problems become supernatural ones when she finds Kayson and Sabrina hiding in her parent’s backyard shed.

Kayson, Sabrina and Emma are unlikely allies, thrown together by chance to fight against the most powerful creatures of the underworld in order to follow their world-changing quest. But will the broken faith of one break the faith of all?"

Now, for the review that I actually typed out:

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this novel, and I completely devoured it. Seriously. Like refusing-to-get-up-from-my-chair-even-if-I-want-food-and-good-movies-are-on-TV kind of devouring.

The plot alone is great. Broken Faith is not one of those countless "sexy fallen angel and human girl romance". Okay, it does involve a sexy fallen angel, but there is a lot more to the story. Nacole is able to incorporate all kinds of supernatural creatures, tying them in together quite brilliantly.

(Speaking of Supernatural, fans of the TV show will definitely enjoy this book.)

Another great aspect of the story were thee characters. All of them were realistic. Extra props to Nacole for being able to craft female characters that have a backbone, think about things other than guys, and do not annoy. Speaking as a reader, the characters were very easy to connect to. Speaking as an actor, they would be killer to portray.

I definitely do not want to give anything away, but I would definitely recommend Broken Faith to anyone. It is fast paced, well-written, above interesting, and I am not too ashamed to say that it pulled at the heartstrings enough to get me tearing up.

The best part is, this is part of a series. I absolutely cannot wait for more!
