I feel like this concept of dark Angels working to destroy demons in their dreams is unique. Kill or be killed in the demon hunting grounds. The Irishman love interest is interesting as well. Unfortunately, given the graphic content and dark theme, I'll be skipping this one. Great review.

Great review but I'm not really interested in this genre of books so I won't be completing the book. Would be a nice read for those interested in this genre though and hats of to the review writer.

Right off the bat, the synopsis looks interesting! I love a good angel and devil trope, moreover, one with a great twist. Coupled with good writing, this seems like a solid book to read. Great review.

Good review. Thanks for the heads up about the "torture, agression and violence" in this book. I read the sample and I didn't really like the sex/romance part. Now that I know about the other, I won't be reading it - not my cup of tea. Thanks for the review!

The book seems to narrate on the darker side of human existence and perhaps explain our motives for our actions. It's an interesting read for those who are not put off by such things like torture, aggression, and violence. Nice review.

Thank you for your detailed review of Purgatory's Angel. I've always been a fan of paranormal romance and angels and demons are especially interesting. I'm not sure about the graphic violence, but I'm willing to give the book a try. I'll be adding it to my Want to Read Bookshelf.

This book is too morbid for my liking. Torture, aggression, and violence are just not my cup of tea.

A good review! This sounds like a paranormal romance fiction. I am not a fan of paranormal stories. However, there are many readers who look for this type of content. As the plot is a bit confusing and contains typos, the novel could not score an excellent rating in the book review.

Not a fan of either romance or paranormal novels - and also not keen on explicit violence and gore, so I’ll be passing on this one. But thanks for a detailed review!

I do agree with battling with demons in our dreams because it's sounds spiritual battle is taking place. However, I have to pass this one because I can't stomach the graphical gory details and I'm afraid I will find it offensive and blasphemous for including Jesus Christ.

Sounds like an interesting book. I always love a good fantasy book. I also like the fact that it is in a series. Although the storyline of fighting demons is one that has been done many times it never seems to get old to me. On top of that fighting them in ones dreams seems like an interesting concept. Thanks for the review.
