Unchained Desire by R.C. Alvarez
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
As the start of a series, this book definitely paints a unique world complete with angels, demons, and anything in between.
Kyria has lived on the run all her life, presumably from something putting them in a form of witness protection. She learned early not to ask questions and always travel light. While on the run from her longest home, her father gets ill and she’s forced to follow a name he leaves behind before passing out – Ramiel. Finding him ends up throwing her down the rabbit hole of her past and her strange abilities. Turns out, she’s got angel blood in her and with it comes astounding powers.
Ramiel wants to just be left alone for his 7 day reprieve from torture and darkness. He was captured and enslaved many years ago, abandoned by his angel friends and left to become an evil demon’s plaything. As he is approached by Kyria, things change and he finds himself re-evaluating what he believed was truth. These two unlikely allies end up much more than that as they battle to do what’s right. Overall, this was a neat spin on your typical paranormal romance. I found it a little tough to get into rooting for them as a couple, but it did put a different edge to an angel storyline.
