*Book source ~ Many thanks to Kensington for providing me with a review copy in exchange for an honest review.
Marna is a Death Angel without wings and yet technically she’s not Fallen. A right nasty shifter hybrid cut her wings off and now she’s Earthbound. Tanner Chance, a panther hybrid and his brother Cody, a demon hybrid, found her after the attack and saved her. Tanner only wants to protect her and keep her safe, but she doesn’t want anything to do with a monster. He keeps an eye on her anyway and when she is accused of killing two panther shifters in an alley, Tanner who happens to be a detective for the New Orleans police, finds her first and brings her in for questioning. Marna knows she didn’t kill anyone and when she tells Tanner she didn’t kill anyone he believes her because angels can’t lie. Now, they need to find out why someone set her up and how they managed to look like her because there has to be a reason and it’s not likely to be a good one for Marna.
Oh, how I love Cynthia Eden’s books. The worlds, the characters, the humor, the steamy goodness, the twisty plots are all so lovely to read. I haven’t read a book of hers yet that I didn’t enjoy. There aren’t just shifters, angels, demons, etc. There are hybrids of all kinds and I love seeing what Eden cooks up and pulls out of the genetic oven next. This book is part of The Fallen series yet it could stand alone. Only Sam & Seline make an appearance though a few others are mentioned. I love when past characters are included in the current book and when current characters look like they are going to get their own book. Hello, Bastian. I hope you’re next. Though Riley the vampire sounds interesting, too. All-in-all a most excellent afternoon read.
“Avenging Angel is another winner from Cynthia Eden. I have to say I am so glad that I gave the first book in this series a shot. Because they sure haven't let me down! As always, I let everyone know that in my reviews, I am NOT going to write a book about the book I just read! I am not going to give away too much information because I feel that it would ruin the story for you readers. :)
With that said: You have a Panther Shifter, Tanner, who is a Detective who falls for an Angel that he found in a situation that could mark him for Hell. Marna is new to the feelings of being Human and while she is struggling with those things plus looking for vengeance for those that marked her as a "Fallen". She also finds it hard to shake Tanner and his determined ways of not only helping and protecting her, but taking her as his own as well. But, when one of them is given a choice that would change their life, will they chose it and get what they were pleading to get all along, or deny their own request to go up against all odds of the "normal" thing that is forbidden among their own kind? You will be reintroduced to a few of the characters that have been in the past couple of books and learn a little bit more about a couple of them as well. You will be introduced to a couple new characters that will surprise the "Hell" out of you and make you question the Grand Plan of things from the beginning. This is filled with drama, suspense, action, fighting, courage, strength, sex, lust, love and more. You will not be bored or even consider putting this book down until the very last word is read.
I definitely recommend this book but I must say that it would be highly suggested that you read the 3 books that come before this one. I cannot wait for the next installment in this series. I can only imagine whose next!! ”
“Tanner Chance had a horrible childhood with a father who had a horrible childhood. He is now a cop and works to put the bad guys away. Turning into a panther is both a blessing and a curse for him. He helped save Marna an Angel of Death when her wings were ripped from her back. He knows he shouldn't but he is drawn to her. Marna only wants her wings back. Sh doesn't like having all these feelings like humans do. While she is leery of Tanner she has to learn to trust him as he may be the only one who can save her. Marna is framed for murder and Tanner goes against everything he knows to help her. The law isn't the only thing they have to hide from as the true killer seems to be following Marna. They have to be careful what they do and keep their heads only that's hard to do when they have to fight their feelings for each other.
Tanner is a sexy, smart shifter trying his best not to be like his father. He can be very protective and when he loves he loves with his whole heart. I really liked him and like seeing him overcome his past and try and show Marna how he feels. Marna at first I would say she is blank. Blank as in she really didn't know what feelings were or how to deal with them. The more she is earth bound you get to see different sides of her. She can be tough and strong but sometimes she is brought down by all that happens to her. I didn't like her at first but the more she learned to open up the more I did.
This picks up right where book three in The Fallen series ended. You get to see some of the characters you have grown to love in this book. The action starts right away and doesn't stop all through the book. The pace is great and keeps you entertained. I didn't know who the bad guy was till the end. I had guess halfway into the book only to find out I was wrong. I like that. It made it a great book to read. The steamy scenes between Marna and Tanner are great as it allows you to see them grow to allow people in to their hearts as well as it is hot. I would say read this series in order as to not spoil the other books. It has many different types of paranormal creatures in it something for anyone to enjoy.

4.5 out of 5 Licks
I’ve been waiting for this book to release since I got the ARC for Angel in Chains. I was really hoping Marna’s story was next and was thrilled when I found out it was. Marna is an angel on a mission-to cause as much pain to those that hurt her as she can. Tanner wants Marna with a fierce intensity. These two fight and make up (read that as have sex) so much your head might spin. And when they have sex it is some seriously hot, hard core sexin going on. Nothing soft and mushy for these two. I tend to find most romantic suspense type novels to be predictable. I almost always know who the bad guy is the first time he’s mentioned, but not here. While I suspected the person behind it all, I kept doubting myself. My only issue was that sometimes I felt as though the story dragged just a little. It was enough to make me put it down to go to bed, but when I woke in the morning I wanted to pick it back up. If you like paranormal with some super hot sex then this is absolutely the book for you. I really hope Cynthia has more planned cause I can’t let these angels go!”
Yet another Alpha male that will curl your toes. ”
“AVENGING ANGEL by Cynthia Eden is another exciting Paranormal Romance. #4 in "The Fallen" series, but can be read as a stand alone,with re-appearing characters.

Filled with demons,angels,danger,justice,passion,the angel of death,a guardian angel,shifters,trust,romance,and love.Everything a reader could possible want in a Paranormal Romance. A fast paced,sexy thrill ride from the first page to the last page with a few twists and turns along the way. I have always enjoyed Ms. Eden's stories and "Avenging Angel" is another reason why. She is a wonderful storyteller,a voice all her own in the paranormal romance industry and one who engages the readers as her characters come to life on the pages of her stories. I can hardly wait for the next installment of "The Fallen" series. What a powerful voice this author has. She cast not only engaging characters,but intriguing, interesting,and exciting plots. A page turner for any paranormal,shifters,demons,angels, or romance readers to enjoy. A must read! Received for an honest review from the publisher.
