Product Description

Product Description

While channeling Robin Hood's "steal from the rich and give to the poor" attitude at a local politician's house, ex-con Katie Logan witnesses a forced suicide. Dirty or not, supernatural or not, he didn't deserve to die, especially not by his own hand. But with her record, stepping forward as a witness isn't an option. On the run from the police and the murderer, she turns to The Bound Ones for help.

When a beautiful woman comes to The Bound Ones, half-angel assassin Cain is immediately drawn to her. But when she fingers him as the killer, he can come to only one conclusion. The twin he thought was dead is very much alive…and trying to send him a message. Unfortunately, that message is: "You're next."

It's a race against time as Cain fights to save the woman he's falling in love with before his brother Abel destroys them both.

The first book in the new Angel Assassin series is a thrilling action packed romance. Ex-con Katie Logan witnesses a forced suicide and stepping forward as a witness is not an option, so on the run she turns to The Bound Ones for help. When half-angel assassin Cain is fingered as the killer, there is only one conclusion… the twin he thought was dead is very much alive and sending him a message. It’s a race against time as Cain fights to save the life of the woman he’s falling in love with before Abel destroys them both.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot takes the reader on a wild ride with lots of suspense, drama, action and romance. The author describes the scenes with well written words that inspire vivid images to grab the reader’s attention and make them feel as if they are part of the story and the well orchestrated action and drama scene is believable making it easy to get caught up in the story. The strong compelling characters are easily related to and inspire lots of curiosity tension builds throughout as Abel and a dark elf harasses Cain and Katie and causes mayhem all over the city.

Cain and Katie’s attraction radiates heat from every page and the sex scenes are hot and steamy. The relationship progresses throughout the story despite starting off with a murder accusation and being pursued by the bad guys. Their story provides the reader with an adrenaline rush, some snarky dialogue and attitude for chuckles and lots of drama that keeps the reader well entertained.

The author has created a fascinating paranormal world and The Bound Ones are an intriguing group of half-angel assassins that draw the reader deeper into their world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the sharp writing style, geeky sense of humour, & amusing pop culture references April 28 2014
By RabidReads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The opening scene in Tricia Skinner’s new ANGEL ASSASSIN series is as disturbing as it is good, in that oh my god I NEED to know more kind of way. Katie’s race to stay alive starts on page one, and doesn’t let up until the epilogue, and even then it’s clear that she’s still not entirely safe. ANGEL KIN is a near seamless blend of world-building, character development, and plot threads with its unique celestial mythology, cornucopia of supernaturals, and gripping story. This book was a borderline 5-star read for me, but the change in pacing towards the end caused me to have to reel back my enthusiasm a notch, and give it a solid 4 instead.

My interest for angel novels within the paranormal genre has slowly waned over the years because it’s been my experience that there’s no grey area when it comes to these supes. They usually fall into one of two categories: overly religious and preachy, or straight-up badass with a dash of celestial on the side. The cover and blurb lead me to expect the latter, and much to my relief, that’s exactly what ANGEL KIN delivers! Skinner’s lore is detailed and original without being over-the-top complicated, and I loved learning about the differences between The Renegades and The Bound—not to mention all of the other fascinating supernaturals that live in the ANGEL ASSASSIN universe. There’s even a vampire gang called the Black Fangs!

I enjoyed the group dynamics within The Bound Ones; each member’s personality is vastly different, and they have distinctive abilities to match. My only complaint in this department was that I wish we’d seen more of Tanis, Jarrid, Kas and Nesty. However, after taking a peek at the author’s work-in-progress page, I think it’s safe to assume that each installment will revolve around one of Cain’s crew. Yes, patience is not my strong suit. I liked how well fleshed-out Cain was, and I enjoyed Katie’s character as well—she’s a strong heroine in her own right, and I also appreciated the romantic elements that she brought to this story.

The evil twin brother plot line wasn’t groundbreaking, but it is almost always a recipe for success in Urban Fantasy. I liked the way Skinner developed the relationship between Cain and Abel by incorporating elements both from their pasts and present, and the final battle was indeed epic thanks to a centuries long build-up. The pacing does take a bit of a hit towards the end of this book though because of the need to tie-up loose ends, and to lay the groundwork for ANGEL LOVER, which somewhat diminished the climax in my opinion. But overall, I really enjoyed this author’s sharp writing style, geeky sense of humour, and amusing pop culture references.

ANGEL KIN is a quick read, and a wonderful glimpse at what’s to come from Tricia Skinner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Twin, Bad Twin May 14 2014
By M. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I haven't read very many paranormal romances that center on angels, God, or demons. The ones I have read are phenomenal. Angel Kin is one of those.

Katie's loyal to a fault, reverting to old habits to help out her friends. Though I don't condone stealing to solve her friends' problem, I do admire her willingness to put herself in jeopardy to help them out. It was just too bad she ended up witness to a murder in the house she decided to rob.

Cain's loyalty lies only with his adopted family. He will do whatever needs to be done to protect his Nephilim brothers and angel father. His duller-than-dull life comes to a stuttering halt when Katie comes to him and his family for protection from a man who looks just like Cain. And just like that, his life is turned upside-down with the daunting realization that his twin brother Abel, whom Cain thought dead all this time, is alive, well, and coming for him.

Cain and Katie's relationship is rocky from the beginning. She thinks he's the killer while he thinks she's a pest. Forced to stick together until Abel is found, their distrust and dislike for each other shifts onto toward mutual ground, eventually giving way to attraction that's been simmering between them since their initial meeting. But Cain can't afford a distraction like Katie, no matter how much he enjoys her kisses, her breathy sighs, and the way she molds her body to his. Too much is at stake, not just for his family but for Katie as well. And she means too much to him at this point for him to risk putting her in danger while he goes after Abel.

There are dynamics to this story I didn't except, like the past that robbed Cain and Abel of the chance to grow up together, like the freedom that Cain enjoys that Abel does not, like Cain's willingness to suffer Heaven's wrath to undo the damage caused by his brother on Innocents. But what exactly is going on? Hints are dropped that something big is coming, something evil, something unexpected.

Ms. Skinner's take on good vs evil with paranormal beings is sensational to read. She's crafted a world where half-breed angels fight to protect Innocent humans from dark paranormal creatures, where bonds are formed that run deeper than blood, where love finds a place to exist in the hearts of two very different people. Cain and Katie found their happy ever after ending, but what about Cain's Bound brothers? What about Abel? I can't wait to find out more about Ms. Skinner's Angel Assassins!

4.0 out of 5 stars An exciting new series with some bad a** angels! May 9 2014
By Lori @ Romancing the Dark Side - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
ANGEL KIN weaves a paranormal world with angel mythology to create one of the most engrossing stories I’ve read in a while. I was instantly hooked and did not want to put this book down! With Angels, Nephilim and Renegade Angels in a battle, things quickly get exciting. I love a story of good vs. evil and Ms. Skinner delivers that and so much more in this series debut.

When the story begins, Katie Logan is back to her old tricks and stealing from a not-so honest politician, in order to save her friends from vampires. She gets more than she bargained for when she’s forced to hide when said politician unexpectedly returns to his home with a mysterious stranger. What starts off as a plain ol’ robbery soon turns into witnessing a supernatural murder for Katie and she’s forced to turn to her brother for help instead of trusting the police. With no where to turn, Katie is brought to The Bound Ones, a group of half-human half-angel warriors (known as Nephilim) who protect the innocent, by her brother. Katie is not thrilled about meeting The Bound Ones but when she’s introduced to Cain, things take a turn for the worse when she realizes he resembles the very man who murdered the politician. In an attempt to clear his name, Cain will have to face a part of his past he thought was long gone and buried.

I must admit, Angels are not my go to paranormal creatures because I’ve only really been captivated by a few books, but I’ve always been fascinated by them. What I love about Tricia’s world is the subdued religious connotations that can sometimes lead me astray while reading. There are slight mentions of religious text but only in reference to the characters’ biblical names, it kind of comes with the territory when you name your hero Cain and his brother Abel. I love the different factions created, The Bound Ones and The Renegades are both intriguing and it was great to see how each operates within this supernatural world that inhabits other paranormals as well.

If I had to describe The Bound Ones to readers, in relation to character development, I’d say they’re like the Black Dagger Brotherhood without fangs! Now before I go any further…let me explain myself, I’m not exactly comparing them to BDB, I just think the dynamics of their group is similar. The Bound Ones are a group of fierce warriors bound together by fate and loyalty just like BDB and it’s clear that each member has a story to tell. These angels are not your fluffy winged kind, they’re dark, brooding and don’t mind getting their hands dirty. Their “dark side” is what I found most endearing, what can I say? I love bad boys! I know this story’s main character is Cain, but I found myself wanting to learn more of the rest of the group. Tanis, Kas, Jarrid and Nesty each leave their mark and I hope to see more of them in future installments.

Onto the hero…Cain, his brother Abel and the heroine.

Cain is undoubtedly a tortured soul, my favorite kind of hero. Yes, he’s an assassin, but he’s managed to keep goodness in his soul, deep down he’s a good man. The guilt he feels for his brother’s “death” has been a weight he has carried for years and his world is turned upside down when he learns the truth about Abel. Saying Cain and Abel’s relationship is complicated is an understatement, the two have a dark past that is told in flashbacks which was a great addition to the plot without being too much.

Most would say Abel is a villain but I would disagree, there’s definitely more than meets the eye with him. These two brothers were separated by fate but I hope they can be reunited by love as the series progresses. Skinner spared no detail in Cain’s character development which is refreshing. Katie held her own as a heroine, especially among this group of opinionated males. She’s not exactly your alpha heroine (did I just make a new term up?) but she’s strong willed and a fighter in her own right. Her character was not as fleshed out as Cain which might be the reason I wasn’t completely smitten with her but I wouldn’t mind learning more about her. Their relationship starts off as one of necessity with plenty of banter and blossoms into romance which was quite sweet. My OMG…WTF? moment came in the revelation that Cain was a VIRGIN…yes, that’s what I said…a centuries old VIRGIN ladies! This was a first for me, it was not only hard to believe that in all his years he hadn’t experienced sex but also that he was such an amazing lover his first time, come on! I don’t care how much porn you’re watching Cain…you’re not going to get that good without some practice!

My introduction to the Angel Assassins series was an action packed thrill ride with a hint of romance and unpredictability. Skinner delivers a Supernatural-esque relationship of brother vs. brother that is sure to end in a climactic showdown. I strongly believe ANGEL KIN is the foundation for what is sure to become a phenomenal series. The dark undertones, snarky humor and strong group of alphas really make it a winning combination!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Beginning Oct. 14 2014
By B. Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Whoa. The beginning of Angel Kin immediately drew me into this story. It was a great way to introduce our heroine, Katie, and the crux of the plot. I'm a sucker for angel stories, so I was drawn into this new world wondering what Heaven and Hell were up to.

Katie is the only girl in her firefighting family and a black sheep by her own admission. She got in trouble for having sticky fingers. But I quite enjoyed that Skinner made her a 'noble' thief. Katie was, after all, trying to get some loot to sell in order to save her friends. She is an extremely loyal and caring woman, which are traits Cain find very appealing.

Katie finds herself enmeshed in the latest battle between good and evil, after witnessing a murder. She can't go to the police because the reason she was in the position to witness it would cause her some trouble, so her brother takes her to The Bound Ones. They promise to keep her safe but sparks really fly when Katie meets Cain - partially because of an attraction and partially because he looks exactly like the murderer.

Cain is one of The Bound Ones, a Nephilim whose powers have been bound. He and the three other Nephilim, all have different powers, which they refer to as their Grace. They use these gifts to protect innocents. Cain has kept his emotions locked down for centuries, never allowing anyone, outside of his brethren, in. Katie, however, brings out his possessive and protective instincts unlike no one else ever has.

Ms. Skinner did a great job of world building, weaving biblical mythology - angels, Nephilim, and even Cain and Abel - with human and Others - demons, lycans, shifters, and vampires. It was fascinating to see how they lived among one another and fought for political dominance as part of the proverbial battle between Heaven and Hell. The history Skinner built around the Nephilim and The Bound Ones is unique and I quite enjoyed it. The explanation of the powers, or Grace, how it manifests, was interesting as well.

Angel Kin revolves around trying to find Abel, before it's too late, and understanding why he's not found Cain before. Of course, Abel's actions are part of a bigger agenda - that of the Renegades, or the surviving Fallen Angels, and others who've joined their fight against the Directorate, or Heaven.

In all, I'm so happy with this recommendation. With great world building and compelling characters, action, and a touch of romance, Angel Kin was an exciting start to the series. The only issue I had was with the pacing. I thought the beginning, despite a whopper of an opening scene, was a bit slow. But I'm eager for what promises to be the intriguing and possibly gruesome battle that is brewing between Heaven and Hell. I'm also eager to learn more about each of the other Bound Ones as the series continues, as well as what the Renegades are after and what the Directorate and Heaven intended when they started this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed With Action! Sept. 26 2014
By Mary Kirkland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I won this book in a blog contest and have never read anything from this author before. But if you've read my reviews before you know that I love finding new authors to read and I definitely found a great one here. After reading the blurb on the back, I really hoped that the story would live up to my expectations and boy did it ever.

Cain is not what I expected in a half angel half human but I really liked his character. He's big and intimidating and oh so hot! We find out a lot about his childhood, how he lost his family and why he does the work he does now. It's sad and angering all at the same time, I really felt bad for him.

When we first meet Katie she is burglarizing a house and hides in a closet when the owner comes home unexpectedly. At first I thought she was going to be one of those whiny, crying, I'm too afraid and too traumatized to go on...type of girls but she ends up being a strong, caring woman and I loved her character.

I really liked that the author gave us so much background into Cain and his brother so we know where all the trouble is coming from and how it started. I won't lie, the description of Abel's powers and what exactly he can do are scary creepy. You wouldn't want to meet this guy in a dark alley.

These halfing angels are warriors so there's enough action, gory descriptions, explosions and punches to the face to keep those who want a little action along with their paranormal romance, very happy. The secondary characters are brought to life very well and I look forward to finding out what will happen with them in upcoming books.

The ending of this book was left wide open without a cliffhanger *thank you* for there to be another book in this series and I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next.
