Book Review: Rapture by J. R. Ward (2012).

On the Cover.

Mels Carmichael, reporter for the Caldwell Courier Journal, gets the shock of her life when a man stumbles in front of her car outside the local cemetery. After the accident, his amnesia is just the kind of mystery she likes to solve, but she soon discovers they’re over their heads with his past. Over their heads with passion, too . . .

As shadows walk the line between reality and another realm, and her lover’s memory begins to come back, the two of them learn that nothing is truly dead and buried. Especially when you’re trapped in a no-holds-barred war between angels and demons. With a soul on the line, and Mels’s heart at risk, what in heaven – or in hell – will it take to save them both?


Rapture is the fourth novel in J. R. Ward’s Fallen Angel series, and is the best of the series so far. The last book I am sad to say just wasn’t up to par, but this instalment has really made up for the discrepancy. Jim Herron is at it again saving soul’s with his fellow fallen angel Adrian, and even though he is gone and sorely missed, Eddies spirit seems to linger with the duo all the same. Not to mention Dog making sure he stays safe in the event something happened. Devina also remains in the scene causing problems with everything she can so that she. An win the game of good and evil!

I found this book much more appealing than the last. I’m not sure if it was because there were more familiar characters than in the last, having Matthias involved and him being the soul whom good and evil are vying for. Or it may have been the fact Mels is such a strong female character, who lives hard, and loves hard. Altogether it made for a great storyline for the battle between good and evil.

Overall I enjoyed this novel very much and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the paranormal genre and fantasy fiction. I give this book a rating of 8/10 stars.
