Book Review - Covet by J.R. Ward

Covet (Fallen Angels, #1)
by J.R. Ward
Published 2009
497 Pages

Covet is the first book in the Fallen Angels series. We are introduced to Jim Heron, a rough and rugged soul with a black ops military background, who finds himself caught between two worlds, and part of a deadly game as old as time: the battle against good and evil. As the newest fallen angel, Jim has the ability to influence seven souls in the most objective way. You see, Jim is a wild card, and his influence could go either way. But the games have just begun!

This book introduces us to demons, in the form of beautiful creatures; and angels, with plenty of quirks. With so much at stake, Jim is being wooed from all angles, and in unexpected ways. But will he trust the right sources? As a new angel, he still has a long way to go! And the clock is ticking…

I really liked this book! I know it’s not the same as the Black Dagger Brotherhood, and I really only started reading it because I was missing the brothers. But this book had its own merit, and I enjoyed exploring the world Jim Heron was just thrust into. There were some slow parts, but I will definitely keep reading the series to see which way the games will go.
