Blog Tour (Giveaway): Angels of the Knights-Fallon by Valerie Zambito

Angels of the Knights - Fallon
When Fallon Angell died at the age of sixteen, her life changed forever. 
The hallowed world of Emperica is everything she had ever hoped for as a mortal—immeasurable beauty, unconditional love and light. But, with affection for humankind still burning within her, she joins the Knight Caste to train as an angel warrior. As a Knight, she will give up her wings and return to the place that killed her to use her unique powers to search out and destroy the evil Kjin that roam the earth. As a Knight, she will stop at nothing to protect the mortals in her care.
The elders warn her that the path she chose will be a solitary one. That she will not have the same bond with humans as she once did. But, as far as she knows, the elders had never met Kade Royce. 
When her duties place her in the path of this handsome former cop, emotions buried long ago rise to the surface and she is powerless to ignore the depth of her feelings for this young man. She knows instinctively that she has found what most people search their entire lives for. 
Ignoring the risks, she invites him into her world of danger, but soon their lives collide with explosive consequence. As a result, Fallon realizes with heartbreaking despair that she can no longer hide from the painful truth. In order for Kade to live, she must destroy him.
Angels of the Knights isn't your typical fallen angel book. These angels choose to come to Earth and fight the Kjin. They are warriors fighting demons to save the human race. When Fallon and her family are killed she is taken to Emperica, aka heaven, and decides to become one of the warriors. Once her training is finally over she is sent to Earth to fulfill her destiny. 

Fallon is such a strong character and fights with all her strength against evil, even risking her own life. She travels everywhere killing the Kjin before they can kill any more humans. She's on a very important assignment when she meets the incredibly sexy Kade Royce. While reading the book all I could think was how much of a gentlemen he was. I need my own personal Kade. They worked so well together and understood each other. Julian, another Knight, was one of my favorite characters. He was so charismatic and although we only get to read about him in very brief moments I couldn't help but fall for him.The evil characters were truly evil, especially Marc Ellis and his group of "soldier" Kjins. You can't help yourself but to want to fight along side Fallon to defeat these awful men.

One thing I really loved about this book was that the main characters were college age. I haven't read many books that fall into the New Adult category but I loved it. Being in college myself it was great to read about people my own age. Fallon was 19 and Kade was around 22 or 23. Now I want to get right into more books about college age main characters.

The only thing I had a bit of trouble with in this book was that Kade and Fallon's love developed basically within the time span of a few days. After that they were inseparable and completely devoted to each other. It wasn't a horrible thing because I was rooting for their relationship but it was just a bit rushed for my liking.

That said, this is an amazing book. I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up this book, but I was completely blown away. The action is constant throughout the story and the characters are very easy to relate to. I was rooting for them the entire way through. The ending will tear your heart out and then hand it back. I was at the edge of my seat as I read the last half of the book and can't wait for the second one. We got a bit of a sneak peek of the character it will feature in the epilogue. If you want a quick action packed read I suggest you go get this book now!
