“I love you, Thea,” he whispered. “I will always love you, even if you don’t love me. Remember? I am yours.”

Thea is destroyed. Cam’s absence cuts her deeply and causes her to question if she ever really knew him. Devastated by news from the Dominion League, she is sucked into a trap that could threaten Cam, her family and all she has come to love.

Cam has resigned himself to the consequences of his actions. Although he is devastated, he vows to ensure Thea is kept safe, even if she’s not with him. When he is given one final chance to show Thea the depths of his love for her, to save her and truly earn her trust, he embraces it with a fierce determination that he will not fail.

YOU MUST READ THE FIRST TWO BOOKS BEFORE READING Awakened by Power!

Fly into the third installment of the Empire of Angels series Awakened By Power (Cam and Thea’s last book). My first feeling when I started reading this book was different than a lot of books I read.  It was a comfort being with characters I knew and a story I expected.  It was a nice feeling as I thought I would get a good story with characters I enjoyed.  BOY WAS I WRONG – Awakened By Power is a continuation of Cam and Thea’s story and it is far from keeping our couple (or readers) comfortable as the story stays on the edge pretty quickly and stays there until the end.  We knew things were left on a cliffhanger and not looking good for our romantic heroes. It was a build on the characters as we have known them, but the story took a much more exciting turn than I expected.  I won’t give it away, as the changes in Thea are unexpected and prove a delightful end to a great series.

I love the world Zoey Ellis has created.  Her character development is really exciting and keeps me guessing even though I think I know how it is going to be. Cam, of course, is still hot and brooding!  Zak, Dani, and Asteroth are helpful and kind.  Amber’s life is moving a long at a much faster pace than Thea’s. There is much more introspection by both Cam and Thea, that is a little different than the other books.  With that said, there is a LOT of ACTION in this installment.

I am thrilled there will be more books as the story continues with a different focus. Finish up your summer with this Angel Warrior series – you won’t be disappointed!

Not all habits can be broken…

Powerful, half-angel Thea faces the scrutiny of the Angel Realm and is beginning to realize that angels are nothing like how they are depicted in the human world. She is intrigued to hear information about her family and pursues the history that has been hidden to her for so long. As Thea tries to get the answers she needs, her trust in Cam is shaken when truths about him are revealed.

Power angel Cam is concerned when he realizes the Angel Realm has plans for Thea he wasn’t made aware of. He fights to keep her close and protect her from all the changes she faces. However when the pressures on their relationship bear down, he teeters on the edge of a darkness that could cause her to walk away from him forever.

Ruined by Power is the second book in the Empire of Angels series, a paranormal alpha angel romance series. If you’re a fan of alpha heroes, powerful heroines, paranormal worlds and falling in love, start with the first book, Claimed By Power.

About the end: This book is a continuation of Cam and Thea’s story and there is cliff-hanger at the end.

Sexual scenes and strong language included. Not suitable for readers under 18.

Thea’s and Cam’s story continues in Ruined by Power (thank goodness!). While there is still a lot of action in this story, the book gets more intimate with the characters. Most of the story takes place in the Angel Realm, as Thea’s training continues. There is a lot more spicy physical action in the book as Thea and Cam explore their relationship.  While the characters are pushed and pulled apart, this doesn’t seem to impede the physical relationship between the characters.  You definitely need to read the first book and this book has a cliffhanger (which is sooooo awesome).

Ellis gives the characters lots to process and obstacles that are far from predictable in this new world of angels. I also love the addition of some new characters in the Angel Realm – Dani and Asteroth.

Ruined by Power is great and I highly recommend it!

Not all angels are angelic…

Thea Robinson has never needed anyone’s charity. Sure, her impoverished existence isn’t desired by most, but her ability to manipulate people’s emotions helps her to blend into the shadows of an unforgiving city. When hideous creatures threaten her life, a surly but gorgeous stranger shows up revealing a world she didn’t know existed. She refuses to put up with his rude, arrogant attitude, but how do you dismiss a warrior angel? And does she really want to when his stormy gaze sends delicious thrills straight to her core?

Cam is one of the most ruthless Power angels in the fight against evil. His devotion to kill demons has made him a celebrated warrior in the Angel Realm, even though his motivation stems from grief. When he is assigned to train and protect a half-angel just coming into her abilities, his rage is unparalleled. Until he realizes Thea isn’t like any others. She stirs a carnal passion in him that he can’t shake. He never counted on her being so beautiful… so fierce… so most definitely his.

Claimed by Power is the first book in the Empire of Angels series, a paranormal alpha angel romance series. If you’re a fan of alpha heroes, powerful heroines, paranormal worlds and falling in love, Zoey Ellis’ riveting, sexy tale is perfect for you.

About the end: Although this book can be read as a standalone, Cam and Thea’s story does continue over the next two books.

Sexual scenes and strong language included. Not suitable for readers under 18.

It was easy to fall into this engaging and action packed story. I really enjoyed Claimed By Power.

Thea is a tough girl who has had a hard life. Cam is a Power Angel who kicks a$$ and kills demons. Thea starts seeing strange beings and Cam is reluctantly assigned to train her into her powers of a half Angel or nephalem.

The relationship between Cam and Thea is hot and heavy as the point of view switches from Cam’s and Thea’s perspective.  I like the POV switch because hearing everything from one side would have been irritating as the characters are a bit reluctant with each other. The dual POV gave it a good balance between the character’s perspective and gave glimpses into Cam and Thea’s different worlds.  While this is the first of three books, this can easily be read as a standalone book (although I look forward to the next one).

There is lots of action in this story as you learn bits and pieces of the Thea and Cam’s backstory.  While most of the story takes place in the Human world, we get a few visits to the Angel Realm to learn more of the inter-workings of the Angels. Be warned these are not nice, warm, and fuzzy angels, rather they are warrior angels who are very intense.

Definitely add to your TBR!
