Crushed Seraphim - Review

How does a foul-mouthed angel end up as the last hope for all of Heaven and Earth?  When Seraph Emma is maimed and tossed from Heaven by a rogue angel who’s taken charge, she fears she’ll never be allowed to return. Tasked with the impossible job of showing the self-loathing (and not even human!) Jason his worth, Emma is sure she’s doomed to fail. Meanwhile, having wormed his way into Heaven, the corrupt Everett has trapped God in Hell and has designs on unleashing evil everywhere. Fortunately, if there’s one thing Emma can’t do (in addition to minding her language), it’s give up. Determined to save Jason and get back to Heaven—even if it means going to Hell—Emma’s plan is simple yet impossible: trick the Devil to save God. What she doesn’t count on is the devotion and, well, humanity she finds in Jason; the spirit, hidden compassion, and raw sex appeal within the Devil; and the vulnerability of her own heart. With the help of two unlikely allies, she’ll wage the battle for Heaven. But will Emma be sidetracked by a new sort of heaven along the way?  What’s truly more dangerous? Falling from Heaven, or falling in love?  Debra Anastasia has twisted a fast-paced tale of intimate relationships with literally universal impact. Rich with humor and electrified by attraction, this novel offers a playfully off-beat take on the good and evil that make up the world

Crushed Seraphim What does a angel do when she's tossed out of heaven and God is trapped in Hell? She teams up with a vampire to show him his humanity and to save the world from evil, of course! Crushed Seraphim by Debra Anastasia is a really good tale, and i love her take on angels, good v evil. 

Characters really jump off the page and demand attention. Emma is nothing like the angel's you'd imagine, Such a fiercely determined character with her own strong opinions and foul mouth (hah) she was so fun to read and not at all like most of the heroines you read about in books today.  

Such terrific writing from a debut novel, i love the world the author weaves, even if jumping from dimensions did get me a little dizzy and confused at time, but it doesn't spoil from the entire book. Jason the vampire and Jack the Devil (love him!) were so lovely to read and go on their journey with. Who knew the Devil would have so much sex appeal?! (Unf!) 

Favourite Quote: 
She traced his waistband while biting her bottom lip. “Think about me then, and don’t stop thinking until you’re inside me.” She hugged him closer and spoke into his chest. “Take my mind away, Jason. I don’t want to be in my head anymore.” 

If you love fast paced stories with many twists, humour, romance and snark with enough innuendo's to please even the minxiest of flirts, then you have to read this book. 

I give Crushed Seraphim by Debra Anastasia 4 Sparkles out of 5! - I look forward to the sequel!

Great review! I also gave this book 4 stars (I like the "sparkly ratings) and I enjoyed the characterization very much. When Debra wrote Jack, his scenes really popped.
