A broker on the trading floor, also affectionately known as ‘the pit’, Rachel Duncan has a stressful job that has basically taken over her life.  Things are worse than she thinks though, her Guardian Angel has gone missing and those in Heaven believe the angel was slain.  Rachel feels as if something is missing in her life, but can’t figure out what it is.

Derek de Molay died in the torture chamber of the Inquisition for one reason; he was a knight of the Templar Order.  When Derek was given a chance to ask forgiveness for his sins so that he could enter Heaven, he refused because he believed that God had abandoned him in his hour of need. Instead, he accepted the position of being a Warrior Angel in Purgatory, warring against those in Hell fighting to get through to humanity.  He will be in Purgatory for eternity until he learns to let go of his rage and pride.

Derek has been given a job on Earth; observe Rachel Duncan and report to Archangel William what he sees.  Derek finds much more than he bargained for; an archfiend has his hooks into Rachel and Derek knows that he has to protect her, not just observe.

I loved the beginning of Warrior Angel, it gave me a wonderful glimpse into both Derek and the workings of Heaven as Margaret and Lizz Weis see it.  However, Warrior Angel slows down a lot soon after Derek gets to Earth.  Derek, Rachel and the Heavenly characters are fantastic and I loved them all…especially William and Sampson.  Warrior Angel picks up nicely further on and becomes an action packed thrill ride that I totally enjoyed.
