Eli is a Fallen Angel, a Nephilim Warrior, half human and half angel. He believes his brethren should not be accountable for the transgressions of their fathers before them. He believes there is truth behind a legend passed down from generations that their kind will finally have a chance to redeem themselves and know the joys of Heaven when they die. However, Eli’s decision could cost both, him and the woman he loves, their lives when he claims her as his soul mate.

Being punished for breaking the Rules of Conduct, Eli is sentenced to go back in time to a point before his soul mate, Ryden, knew who and what he was. He has until the end of Ol’ Hallow’s Eve to make Ryden fall in love with him all over again or his life is forfeited. But with some of his brethren not wanting Eli to succeed in his quest, his time begins to run out. Will Ryden be able to say the three words Eli so desperately needs to hear?

This is what a true love story is all about; forbidden passion, an undying love, compelling action, and an ending that leaves the reader with a sense of fulfillment. Karen Michelle Nutt does not disappoint when it comes to her realm of story-telling. Her dazzling descriptions of the characters, unique style of writing, well planned out plot, and ability to write sincere emotions is breathtaking. The visualization of Ryden recalling a memory of being encircled by Eli’s wings was written as if I personally experienced Eli’s winged embrace surrounding me, felt the softness of his feathered wings, and the sensation of his masculine touch. (Sigh). That was an amazing climactic moment for me, so realistically and emotionally perceived. The only wrong doing of this story is the wickedness behind Karen’s cleverness by making the reader have to wait for the next book, which is about Lucca. And Lucca is my type of bad boy angel, long blond hair, blue eyes and tight ass jeans….. YUMMY! Eli: The Warriors for the Light is a must read!!!!
