“Best of the three books, Angel in Chains is action packed, heart felt and has twists that will leave your mouth hung open in shock.” ~Under the Covers

Angel in Chains is the third installment of the Ms. Eden’s The Fallen series. As I said from my review of Angel Betrayed, this series just keeps getting better and better. The romance is more intense, the action is more intense and the hero is definitely more intense.

The biggest struggle for all our Fallen Angels are that they made a choice and it came with a price.  Being kicked out of the heavens, wings burned off and then thrown into the human world is just a few of the punishments when rules are broken. However, the worst is dealing with all the emotions that come with the temptations.

From Angel Betrayed, we already knew what Azreal’s weakness would be. It is the very reason he fell to begin with. Destined to cross paths again Azreal saves Jade from an attack by shifters.  Though his reason to save her from the beginning was to get back to heavens, his attraction for her was obvious.  As I said, these fallen Angels’ weakness was their temptations.  And Jade Pierce was exactly that.

I enjoyed reading about Azreal and Jade.  I have to say that Azreal and Jessica are my fave out of the three couples from the series.  I think their romance was more believable then the first 2 books.  There was some resistance at first but as soon as they know they felt for each other, they were in for the long haul.  I loved that Jade trusted Azreal when his loyalty was in question and that just humbled Az making him fall even harder.

I also enjoyed the relationship between Azreal and Samael.  Like any brothers that fight, they fight but somehow back each other up when needed.  I don’t want to say to much but Azreal and Sam had me in tears.

Best of the three books, Angel in Chains is action packed, heart felt and has twists that will leave your mouth hung open in shock.  Though this book had its slow patches, Ms. Eden kept me interested in the characters and plot.
