Tovia has been reading Banished by Iris Champion
It’s often said that forbidden fruits taste the sweetest and this novel is no exception.
I took a look at the blurb and thought ‘’a romantic tale between a rebellious human turned angel and Lucifer? typical’’ but I was pleasantly surprised as I progressed. The author Iris Champion captures this work of ethereal fiction in a way and manner that stays true to herself. She transformed these very mundane and cliché characters into her own and it’s sincerely beautiful.
Though the plot is such that you can almost already tell the end from the beginning, this book was still a worth- while read. The diction used throughout was easy to understand and the switch between point of view offered no confusion. This author created characters that were not any different from the people you would encounter in your daily life thus making it easy to understand and empathize with them.
I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars because not only was the execution of the storyline beautiful, the copy I read was also edited thoroughly. If you’re a severely religious person with no tolerance for sexual content then I strongly suggest that you stay clear of this book but if you love a good fantasy tale and wouldn’t mind a few heated scenes between the lines then I think you’ll find this novel quite interesting and remember to keep out of the reach of children while at it.
She’s an angel in training. He’s darkness incarnate. When their heated attraction breaks divine rules, can love rewrite fate?
Britton prays she’ll live up to her destiny. The first human raised by Archangel Michael, she’s desperate to fit in with those born in Heaven. But when she’s humiliated by her angelic peers during battle practice, she flees in shame and falls into the devilish arms of a stranger.
Lucifer has grown weary of banishment. And when he happens upon his archenemy’s beloved protégé, he’s delighted by the unexpected opportunity for vengeance. But he’s confronted by the surprise return of a long-buried yearning when their passion turns hotter than Hell.
After her steamy affair with her Fallen lover is discovered by her cherished father figure, Britton refuses to accept his furious forbiddance of their courtship. And with ancient rivalry drawing Lucifer down a familiar dark path, he’s torn between the hope in his heart… and giving in to his deadly instincts.
Can their sizzling desires pave the way for the Devil’s redemption?
Banished is the fiery first book in the Fallen Angel paranormal romance series. If you like scorching chemistry, sweet temptations, and alluring characters, then you’ll adore Iris Champion’s wicked tale.
Thanks for the review, Tovia. This certainly sounds like a ‘hot’ one!
