Angel Bait Review

Angel Bait by Tricia Skinner
Angel Assassins Book 0.5
Re-Published October 31, 2014 by Rowan Publishing
5 Celestial Stars!

"Skinner has given new meaning to the phrase 'The Sins of the father shall be paid through the son.'"

Synopsis:

He's not that kind of angel. 

Jarrid is a “Bound One”: half angel, half human, trained from childhood to enforce Heaven’s laws on earth. An assassin with no remorse. And no choice. When he discovers an ancient ritual called Ascension, which might give him a shot at freedom, he can’t resist his lifelong dream. He only needs to find one last Renegade angel and take him down…using a certain woman to flush the angel out of hiding. 

She's not what he's expecting. 

News reporter Ionie Gifford has no clue an outlaw angel wants her dead, much less why, but she does know one thing: the enigmatic Jarrid, with his penetrating silver eyes and his worship-worthy body, is her ticket to the city's supernatural underworld, where she might finally be able to locate her mother's killer. For that kind of information, she's willing to risk everything... 

They can't be together -- but can't keep apart... 

Blindsided by Ionie's beauty and tenacity, Jarrid finds the millennia-old glacier around his heart melting. But when he's faced with a choice, will he sacrifice Ionie for freedom from his brutal servitude—or agree to be bound for eternity, to protect the life of the woman he's falling in love with? 

From novelist Tricia Skinner comes a story that will have fans of action-packed love stories applauding. Seamlessly combining elements of paranormal romance and gritty urban fantasy, the Angel Assassins series is a heart-pounding spin on angel mythology. (Goodreads)


Review:

Being re-published on Halloween, what better way to unwind after peeling kids out of costumes, washing off layers of face-paint and dealing with kids bouncing off the walls with sugar highs than curling up with a fun, short, bloody supernatural read that puts a whole new twist in the Fallen Angel genre?

Many who have read Angle Kin without having had the benefit of reading Angel Bait may have wondered who the mysterious Ionie was, and just how she became an honorary member of the team, or more appropriately, what. Turns out her ties run deeper than her relationship with Jarid.

Referred to by the Others as a Scribe, reporter Ionie Gifford has always been bound and determined to find her mother's killer.  So when she finds one of the infamous Bound standing in her boss' office needing her help she believes its the answer to her prayers, and strikes a deal in her favor. But she is far from naive and is also determined to discover the real reason Angels, half or not, would need to seek her out of all people. When she learns the truth it may shatter more than her heart.

After being saved from an imminent death, Jarrid and his brothers learn the hard way at a very tender young age, they were saved only to serve. Years of servitude, belittlement, disrespect and punishment, has lead to the teams utter hatred of Angel kind. When Jarid learns a piece of information that could lead to The Bound's freedom he sets up what he feels is a concrete plan. What he hadn't planned on was falling in love with the bait.

In exquisite detail Tricia Skinner shows the city of Detroit in a whole new light. One in which the murder count is still high but far beyond just random. Angel Bait sheds more light on the history of the Bound Ones, their punishment and the Directorate that sees them as nothing more than abominations that should not be allowed to live. I highly recommend this book to both lovers of Urban Fantasy and Fallen Angels, but only to those who are not the faint of heart. More than a little bit of blood, violence, loyalty and love, Angel Bait is one of those prequels that should not be skipped.
