Angel Kin Review

Angel Kin by Tricia Skinner (ARC Review)
Angel Assassins Book 1
Published April 28, 2014 by Entangle Edge
4.5 Fangs

"Sometimes even Angels' find themselves questioning Heaven's dictates, and must take matters into their own hands."

Synopsis -

While channeling Robin Hood's "steal from the rich and give to the poor" attitude at a local politician's house, ex-con Katie Logan witnesses a forced suicide. Dirty or not, supernatural or not, he didn't deserve to die, especially not by his own hand. But with her record, stepping forward as a witness isn't an option. On the run from the police and the murderer, she turns to The Bound Ones for help.

When a beautiful woman comes to The Bound Ones, half-angel assassin Cain is immediately drawn to her. But when she fingers him as the killer, he can come to only one conclusion. The twin he thought was dead is very much alive…and trying to send him a message. Unfortunately, that message is: "You're next."

It's a race against time as Cain fights to save the woman he's falling in love with before his brother Abel destroys them both.  (Goodreads)

Review - 

Finally, an Urban Fantasy centered in the D!  Lets face it, what better place to be centered around Paranormal Activity than Detroit city.  Where the crime rate is so high that even the Mayor of the city is a widely known criminal, so having seething creatures around should come as no surprise.

Angel Kin is the first of a potentially amazing Urban Fantasy series', Angel Assassins. Involving Fallen Angels, and the dictate where Heaven decreed that all of their children, Nephilm, and wives be decimated. Only four children were allowed to survive, The Bound Ones, after the pleading of one warrior angel, Tanis.  So it should come to no surprise to Heaven when another faction us formed, The Renegades.   A group of Fallen Angels Hel bent on seeing Heaven taken down.  After the brutal war that took the lives of their families,  rage is the only emotion they truly feel, and what they raised Abel on, the Nephilm who got away. The question remains,  is he the only one?

Angel Kin is centered around two Nephilm brothers, Cain and Abel, by being named such one could say they were doomed from the start.  After being secreted away by the Renegades at a very young age,  brought up on nothing more than rage and brutality,  Abel has thought of nothing more than revenge against the brother whom he believes abandoned he and their family to perish.  Planning on not only destroying his name but taking his life as well, it seems pure dumb luck when an eye witness identifies Cain as the killer, being identical twins comes in handy with his plots and schemes.

Cain is taken aback when an eye witness seeks The Bound Ones aid in protection from a killer whom she seen not just kill a man, but force him to kill himself, fingers him as the killer.  Indicating the impossible, the brother he thought he had lost centuries ago was still alive.  But that hope turns into something else once his suspicions are confirmed with a note carved into the dead body, "You're next".

Skinner has created a world where the Gangsters are truly out for blood since they are Vampires, and where Heaven has turned their Half-Breeds into deadly Assassins.  Where people will have even more reason to fear walking the streets of Detroit alone at night.

Tagline: The thief will steal his heart...




Book Synopsis: While channeling Robin Hood’s “steal from the rich and give to the poor” attitude at a local politician’s house, ex-con Katie Logan witnesses a forced suicide. Dirty or not, supernatural or not, he didn’t deserve to die, especially not by his own hand. But with her record, stepping forward as a witness isn’t an option. On the run from the police and the murderer, she turns to The Bound Ones for help.


When a beautiful woman comes to The Bound Ones, half-angel assassin Cain is immediately drawn to her. But when she fingers him as the killer, he can come to only one conclusion. The twin he thought was dead is very much alive…and trying to send him a message. Unfortunately, that message is: “You’re next.”

It’s a race against time as Cain fights to save the woman he’s falling in love with before his brother Abel destroys them both.



Author Bio: I’m Tricia Skinner and I write Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy. I’m a former journalist who discovered my inspiration to write fiction as an escape from “real life.” My reading tastes are all over the place, but I’m mainly drawn to fantasy (and its subgenres), paranormal, sci-fi, and history.

When I’m not writing, I’m a newbie “green” practitioner, fitness procrastinator, and a technology geek. I’m a mother and a wife. My family includes two Great Danes. I’m also a gamer. I enjoy interacting with my fel­low geeks and help­ing other writers, especially through the Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal Chapter of Romance Writers of America where I’ve served as Newsletter Editor. I’m represented by Laurie McLean of Foreword Literary.






The Demon Lord by Paula Altenburg

Blurb:  The Demon Lord has conquered the mortal world and sampled its pleasures. Now all he needs is to conquer the goddess who is meant to complete him. She, however, has other plans.


Allia is sent by her goddess sisters to win the heart of the Demon Lord and make him her slave. But Allia soon discovers that the Demon Lord’s heart is not easily given, and that in order to win it, she must sacrifice her own.



Author Bio: I’d like to be able to say I always wanted to be a writer, but the truth is I thought it looked like a lot of hard work. Life, however, sometimes leads us down paths we never intended to take.


From the very beginning, my parents encouraged my love of books. When a Grade One teacher suggested I wrote too many “thrillers,” my mother, an English teacher, said I could write – and read – whatever I wanted. My high school English teachers later backed her up on that. In university, I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Anthropology. At the time it was a whim, but it’s amazing how much that little piece of paper has benefited me over the years. Researching the history of civilizations has led to many intriguing worldbuilding possibilities.



When my children were babies and money was tight, my mother, grandmother, and husband bought me an electric typewriter for my birthday because they knew I was bored and wanted me to be happy. My mother became my very first critique partner, willingly reading pages and pages of manuscripts no one should ever have to suffer through. She researched markets for me, and introduced me to a journalist friend, who in turn introduced me to the Writers Federation of Nova Scotia. My brother and my brother-in-law introduced me to Thieves’ World, David Eddings, and Piers Anthony. My sister gave me my first computer.



My grandmothers believed if something’s too hard, you aren’t working hard enough. My brother and sisters have all successfully followed their dreams, and my husband and two sons offer me proof every day that hard work is something to be embraced, not avoided. With these people behind me, how could I possibly stray from a path on which life seems to have planted them as guardrails?
