Publisher's Summary

Between the pissed off creatures that want demon-hunter Lily Marks dead and the fallen angel who just.... wants her, Lily is about ready to trade forever for a comfy job in a cubicle farm. The fact that she and Julian are civil to one another is enough to have her thrown out of the Sanctuary, but she can't shake her not-so-angelic stalker or how he brings her dangerously close to ecstasy.

Her forbidden relationship with Julian provides the perfect fuel for suspicion when a traitor is discovered to be working within the Sanctuary. Lily quickly finds herself hunted by well, everyone. Her only hope is to discover the real traitor before she loses everything - and she'll need Julian's help. That is, if Julian is really there to help her - and not destroy her.

Yeah, being a Nephilim isn't everything it's cracked up to be.

Narrator ruined it for me!

This could have been so much better but unfortunately there was no emotion in the narrators tone and made listening to it a chore.

JLA as always love your writing ✍ ❤,

such a pity the narrator made the lead male character sound like an automated lunch box! Jen's early works don't have the grand world building of her most recent works yet the story, characters, live/sex oo la la 🤯 are great. An easy sexualising fun listen while driving 🚗! Really great

Gimme My Microscope... There must be a story here somewhere

I wanted to like this book. I kept trying. I put it down (proverbially after all this is an audiobook) and would come back thinking I must have made a mistake. Nope.

There is an outlying set up and I got all excited and then wham! All that happens is guilt sex. Over and over and over....
There was a lot of 'his member" and other such euphemisms. What happened to the story I wanted to hear about this special demon killer?

would love for this to become a series...

There are so many places this could go as a series. I really liked this book and would love to hear Michaels story finished out.

Why isn't there more?!

There's only one book in this series and I'm seriously bummed about this! The author needs to come back to this series! Fallen angels and nephilim? Forbidden romance? I was sucked in immediately!

*pout* Here's to hoping the series isn't dead. I rated 4 stars instead of 5 simply because there hasn't been a book added to this series in YEARS! Like 8 years!

Great start to a possible series

It appears this is the only book written in the Nephilim Rising series, sadly. It is a very well written fallen angel based story with fully developed characters and emotional relationships. Truly a gifted romance novelist.

Not as good as her other books (IMO)

I've read many of Jennifer Armentrout's books and loved them all, so I assumed I'd love this one. (All of the Covenant, Lux, and Dark Elements series) I was excited that this book was categorized as adult instead of young adult, so it wouldn't be about teenagers for once.

Unfortunately, I didn't love this book. It's decent, but there was no depth. It didn't make me care about the characters the way her other books did. The book has a lot of very descriptive steamy sex scenes (which is ok, I realize it's a romance book), but didn't have enough of a story line outside of that. There wasn't much of an emotional connection between the main characters. The only connection between the main two characters was sex, and there wasn't much going on with the supporting characters either. There was no one that I hated or loved. I just didn't feel like I knew much about them. The story did pick up in the last two chapters, but that's a long time to wait!

Bad narrator. Couldn't finish book

The narrator used this breathy, sexy voice for almost everything; normal conversation, whispers, male voices, female voices etc. Since she stopped sometimes I assume it was on purpose.
Couldn't finish the audiobook because of it, but I liked what I managed to get through.

Awful narration

Could hardly get into the first chapter - the voiceover was terrible - so breathy and with false crescendos I couldn’t bear to listen any more.

A brilliant story

While I have read this book a long time ago it was great to see it brought to life on audible. Although I wasn't always keen on the narrators voice. When she did the voices they were really good though. A really good story about nephlim and fallen angels, dead heads and minions and a team of nephlim at the sanctuary who spend every day saving humans but they aren't allowed to really have a life of their own. Lily is one of the nephlim and she's been at the sanctuary since her mother killed herself. Lily has been warned that the Fallen angels are bad but she can't help seeing the good in one of them. This is a stand alone book but there could have been more and we live in hope that one day jennifer l armentrout (J Lynn) will write more.

Good but not great

Not my favourite Jennifer book but still good. I guess I am not a big fan of falling angels etc. The narrator was really good and the story somewhat interesting but I am not going to follow up with the other books in the series (if there is any).
