Book Review of The Twelfth Paladin
Sponsored by Paranormal Cravings
Welcome to Books, Books, and More Books. I am pleased to share my review of this book
with you. Thank you for visiting and
please come again.
Scarred with angelfire by a rebellious angel named Micah, Jake
Cottrell is sanctioned to become the twelfth paladin in Micah’s supernatural
unit of slayers. However, regret abounds as Micah is banished from his command
and ordered to protect what he now despises…a human he believes is unworthy of
such an honor.
Jake slips far away from righteousness, outwardly proving
Micah’s judgment, by replying to a wicked email from email@example.com.
Forever a seeker of mischief, Jake dares Hell to burn him. Hell agrees. Davis
Travers thickens the plot by introducing Jake to Rachel Darnell. A temptress
extraordinaire, she erupts from the fiery pits to steal Jake’s soul. After a
steamy seduction from the dark side, Jake is left spellbound.
With his soul dangling between Heaven and Hell, Jake soars on a
blistering blacktop to escape the wrath of Hell as he fights for redemption
while transforming into the twelfth paladin.

desire incited, I fell into Rachel’s maddening world feeling her splendid, bare
breasts upon me. No rest for the wicked. A bit delirious, “Damn
you,” slipped through my lips knowing I stood upon the jagged edge between life
and death. Fuming with monstrous hunger, I danced on that edge feeling good and
evil collide in every cell of my body.
just wait,” I said running my fingers through her black
as midnight hair.
wait for nothing,” said Rachel skimming my neck with claws fit only for a
beast. “You’re mine.” More bewitching kisses, irresistible and dreadful at the
same time, demanded I fall into chaos.
my grip on sin, I said, “You’re unbelievable, magnificent.” The
computer screen flickered with a deep blue light as hatred in my soul grew for
Rachel, but my flesh…cursed and weak, was so anxious for her essence it made me
sick. You’ll be the death of me, but I’d die a happy man. Uh, hold on a
second. I don’t want to die. Ready to escape her vindictive
entrapment, I dared to look upon Rachel’s eternal beauty saying, “I won’t…can’t let
late.” Refusing to budge, Rachel slithered her smoking-hot body all over mine sparking
a wildfire in my lust filled skin. “You beckoned me,” she said mesmerizing me
with eyes so dark they had to be portals to Hell. Soft laughter, accompanied by
a playful caress, extracted all fear while Rachel ingested the precious beams
of moonlight. “You need me, Jake.” Left awestruck by the mystical presence,
shadows froze at the mere sight of her.
need me,” I proclaimed as every inch of my throbbing, hard body
burned for her.
your words carefully, well…that is if you want to keep your tongue.” Sitting on
top of me, she scraped my jaw with those deadly claws saying, “So shut up. I
know what you crave. Yes…I…do.” Rachel slid down my tormented body making sure
I’d regret rejecting her. Molten hot lips scorched my flesh, and then she
chanted a devilish spell that devoured all guilt.
torment, synthesized to the nth degree of potency, ignited in my veins with a
vengeance. No, stop—don’t ever stop. Sh—shit. This can’t be happening
mercy existed as Rachel licked my face and then bit my bottom lip drawing fresh
blood to quench her primitive thirst. Glaring into my eyes, she smiled wiping
warm blood from her perfectly glazed, red lips. “Um, sin-filled wine.” Soulless
eyes gleamed with unadulterated evil as her intoxicating scent and
mouthwatering body seduced my soul.
maniacal rambling echoed like thunder and then dulled to become a terrifying
murmur the likes of which only the Tower of Babble could
contain. The hushed turbulence in the room frolicked with Rachel’s enticing
lawlessness, until at long last…my conscience revved up to kick my ass. I
halted Rachel saying, “I don’t want you anymore. To Hell with you!” I awoke
sweating and exhausted from the lunacy buzzing throughout my mind.
from the encounter, my eyes twitched. Free from Rachel’s spell, moonlight
attacked optic nerves extinguishing the rampant fire inside me. Light? Yes,
it’s virtuous…and when light is summoned, it’s an almighty force to be reckoned
with. That was a priceless lesson for this seeker of mischief to learn.
unguarded stillness of the night, I sat up in bed shaking my head while
marveling at Rachel’s ardent pursuit. That beautiful…but dangerous
bitch is still messing with me. Will it ever end? Feeling fresh,
blood-ridden wounds on my chest made my heart flutter. “I let her into my
dreams and now look at me,” I whispered catching my breath. Well, thank
God I survived this one. Close call…yeah, really close. Sorry to say, the netherworld had
splattered my nighttime reality with enviable, but hazardous sexual antics
that, if accepted, had the ability to conquer any sense of righteousness I
was a really intense book to read. It
was very much about the battle between Heaven and Hell, right and wrong, good
and evil. It has angels and demons,
virtuous women and succubae, and choosing to do good or evil. It contains a strong sexual theme and furious
battles where personal souls are at risk.
It was at times funny and at times very difficult to read.
said the story was gripping. I was on
the edge of my proverbial seat, the entire time I was reading. I have read angel/demon stories before but
none quite so compelling. I loved the characters,
even when l hated what they were doing.
this book 5 out of 5 clouds.
