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.
