Review: Raziel by Kristina Douglas

She was just an ordinary mortal . . .

'You're dead' is so not what Allie Watson wants to hear. Unfortunately, it explains a lot. Like the dark, angelically handsome man who ferried her to this strange, hidden land. The last thing she remembers is stepping off a curb in front of a crosstown bus. Now she's surrounded by gorgeous fallen angels with an unsettling taste for blood - and they really don't want her around. Not exactly how she pictured heaven.

. . . until death catapulted her into a seductive world she never imagined.

Raziel is unsure why he rescued Allie from hellfire against Uriel's orders, but she stirs in him a longing he hasn't felt in centuries. Now the Fallen are bracing for the divine wrath brought by his disobedience, and they blame Allie for the ferocious Nephilim clawing at the kingdom's shrouded gates. Facing impossible odds at every turn, the two must work together to survive. Raziel will do anything to defend his spirited lover against the forces of darkness - because Allie may be the Fallen's only salvation.

My Opinion of this book: I love urban fantasy and realize it is fiction.. However when an author attempts to impose his or her religious believes on the public by calling it fiction it can become offensive to some people. I was offended and after the fourth chapter decided I have been offended enough. therefore I chose not to read any further.  I give this book a big fat 0...

I've read several like this, some are okay, others... not so much. One author took real offense because I didn't like the religious overtones in her book. It's my feeling that if you're going to coat religious philosophy as a novel, at least say so in the blurb!
