Book 1: The Chronicles of Fire and Ice

~ Synopsis ~

Archangels are extinct and the world is inhabited by a half-human/half-angel race called Nephilim. But one Archangel remains – a child born of fire known as The Legend. 21-year-old Nephilim Scarlett Porter is starting her Angel training at the infamous Blackbell Academy, so she doesn’t have time to worry about dreams of mysterious dark angels. The last thing she expected was her dream angel to be Dyston Blackbell, or that finding her was part of his mission – one Dyston is prepared to fail to keep Scarlett safe. Danger is closer to Dyston and Scarlett than they realize. War is brewing, led by The Lucifites, and they need The Legend to carry out their plans. With the help of their friends, the two must find the Lucifites’s leader, and stop his plans for destruction. But will Dyston and Scarlett’s love survive? How far will Scarlett go to save those she loves most?

“Whoa. Easy there, you should watch where you’re going.”

“Sorry, sir.” And then she realised it was him, the blue-eyed stranger.

“Please, call me Lakyn. Sir makes me feel so old,” he chuckled.

“Sorry, Professor Lakyn.”

“That’s what my other students call me, but please, I’d prefer it if you call me Lakyn, Scarlett.” He grinned, and it made Scarlett feel uneasy. Was he hitting on her?

“But I’m a student, Professor Lakyn. Now if you will excuse me, I’m going to be late for lunch, someone just struck the gong.”

Three strikes of the gong meant punishments were going to be handed out. At Blackbell, one of the most important rules was never to be late.

“I would hate for you to be punished. I’ll see you in the dining room.” He patted her on the back and retreated up the stairs she had just come down. He seemed different in person than he appeared on TV, but still had the same cocky, over- confident attitude. This was Scarlett’s second run-in with Lakyn Blackbell in one day, and she didn’t want there to be a third. He made her feel uneasy, and she was unsure why.

  Scarlett goes off to the academy to find out who she is. The Nephilim reach twenty-one and they go off to the academy to find out what trait they have. Scarlett lives in a world that the human race is almost extinct because angels bred with humans creating the new race called Nephilim. Scarlett doesn’t know much about herself because her mother died when she was young and nobody knows who her father is.

     She meets Dyston and Lakyn Blackbell at the academy. She knows one and feels strange things from the other. She knows that her life has changed. Dyston has known Scarlett for years. He has been protecting her and will go on protecting her. There is a war coming and nobody is safe. The Legend of a child born of flame who will help determine the outcome of the war. Is love strong enough to survive? Will Scarlett make choices that change her and her love forever?

     I really enjoyed this story. I like both brothers for different reasons. I was a little sad that the synopsis pretty much outlined the story before I read it. I knew the answers to questions before they were asked. Still having said that, I found the character compelling. Scarlett wants to do the right things. She is strong but she still has a lot to learn. At twenty-one you would think that you wouldn’t have the weight of the world on your shoulders. Yet she does. I give this 3.5 books.

Jacob pressed his lips to Kat’s cool forehead.

“Look after her while I’m gone,” he told the young Michaelite nun who had taken over the shift of guarding Kat’s body. He thought she looked to be about eighteen.

“I will, sir. Don’t you worry, she’s in good hands,” she said.

“You really don’t have to call me sir. I told you before to call me Jacob,” he said, hoping he didn’t sound as impatient as he felt.

“Sorry s…” she began, but corrected herself when he shot her a quick look, “Jacob.” He had the feeling that she was forever apologising for nothing.

“Call me if anything happens, okay? Anything at all.” He turned to exit the crypt.

“Okay, I will. And Jacob?”

“Yes?”

“She’ll be fine. Good luck.”

“Thanks. Oh, I didn’t catch your name before.”

“It’s Cecilia,” she told him with a sweet smile. It was a shame, he thought, that she had dedicated her life to the Michaelites. She would have had a line of guys around the block waiting for her. Then Jacob paused.

“Cecilia.”

“Yes?”

“No. That was Kat’s middle name. Is Kat’s middle name…”

Cecilia gave him a small smile. “Then I will take extra special care of her.”

“Thank you, Cecilia.” And he smiled at her once more before unfurling his snowy wings and lifting himself into the dusk sky.

While Scarlett and Dyston are dealing with the death of Kat. Lakyn has to deal with Rachel, their daughter, and their family. Jacob tries to get Kat’s soul back from the Lucifites. He tries to get Scarlett and Dyston to help him but the safety of them all is in jeopardy. While he is going on this task he has to do things that he isn’t proud of plus he finds conspiracies and secret plots everywhere he turns. Scarlett and Dyston are fighting and with Jacob fighting for Kat, it makes you wonder if love will triumph or will evil.

     This book is completely different with the way it is written. The first book set up the story. The story continues with continual twists and turns. You don’t know who to trust and if everything is going to go literally to hell in a hand basket.  Dyston and Scarlett’s relationship is tested in good and bad ways. Scarlett is still lost in a sea of confusion. She doesn’t know everything she needs to help. Her powers are still new and her purpose in this life is confusing. I can’t wait to see what happens next. I give this 3.5 books.

Book 3: The Chronicles of Silver and Gold

~ Synopsis ~

Waking up on her twenty- second birthday alone wasn’t something Scarlett had in mind. Neither had she planned Dyston’s departure from her life so soon.

When she receives a mysterious note from him telling her to track down Rachael, little did she know the journey it would lead her on.

Dyston’s note told her to let Rachael help her reveal things she didn’t know about her origins, but what she sees on her journey through time could change everything, including her fate.

In the thrilling third book of the Legend of the Archangel series, Scarlett learns that knowledge is power, especially when it comes to changing the fate of the world.

~ Excerpt ~

“Well, well, if it isn’t my favourite fiery vixen. Back for another round?” Lakyn sat alone on the dais, behind a desk typing away on his laptop. No one else was around. Scarlett swallowed and approached the dais.

“Bite me.”

His smirk widened. “Not so innocent now, are we?”

“I am not as vulnerable as you might think.”

“I hate to break it to you, princess, but aren’t you all alone in a big room, with little ol’ me?”

Scarlett would not let him get the better of her. She decided to change the subject.

“I am not here to see you. I’m actually here to see Rachael.”

She had done it, touched his kryptonite. He froze, took off his black-framed reading glasses (she secretly wished Dyston wore glasses) and placed them on top of his closed laptop. Then he turned his icy blues on her.

~ Review by Venture ~

Scarlett wakes on her birthday alone. She never wants to be separated from Destyn but he has decided to distance himself from her.  He leaves her a note that tells her that she needs to talk to Rachel. He wants her to find out about herself. He even trusts his brother to help. She needs to find out about her mother and father. She also needs to find out what her fate is suppose to be. The knowledge she gains comes with a price and she doesn’t know if she will ever have Destyn again.

     The third book starts to answer some questions and brings up more questions. The line between who is good and evil is blurred. Destyn seems to be making bad choices and Scarlett spends time trying to find herself. In someways it is good that she learns to find her own way in the world. She will always miss Destyn because he is her soul mate. I think this is probably the best book of the three. There were twists and turns and new discoveries but the place it ends is not on a cliffhanger. Just a place that makes you want to read more. I give this four books.
