Thousands of years ago, the archangel Abdiel refused to join his parents and brothers in siding with Lucifer during his attempt to take over Heaven.  Tortured and unable to rescue his younger siblings, Abdiel closed himself off from the world as best he could.  Now Michael, the leader of the angel warriors, is sending Abdiel to Detroit to lead an angel warrior team consisting of Cam, an immature punk empath, and Gabi, a gorgeous healer Abdiel can’t seem to resist.

 Gabi has been in love with Abdiel since they were children, though she never believed Abdiel could feel the same.  Despite telling herself she’s over him, Gabi finds herself drawn to the tormented archangel.  As the two fall in love, chaos erupts around them.  An ancient prophesy begins to come true and demons from Hell are out for the angel warriors’ blood.

 Heaven, Hell, warrior angels, demonic villains, loss, life, love, hate…the themes of Angel Warriors may be as old as time, but Stephani Hecht takes these qualities and weaves a plot that is inventive and new.  Angel Warriors is a sexy, exciting tale filled with interesting, likeable characters and a fast-moving plot that had me eagerly turning the page.

Angel Warriors introduces us to the world of the Archangel Series, but Ms. Hecht manages to provide the groundwork for the series and introduce us to many major players without ever slowing the story down - a feat I greatly admire.  I will warn that Angel Warriors ended with a cliffhanger that made me grateful I had book two of the series, Captive Angels, on hand to read immediately after.  An engaging blend of action and romance, Angel Warriors is not to be missed.
