Summary

Heaven refers to them as Misplaced Halos. Humans don’t even know they exist. This faction of celestial warriors was sent here under the cover of darkness to protect humanity from Lucifer’s demons. In return for their servitude, these warriors expect only one thing: the eternal love they were promised, what angels refer to as an amsouelot.

The first of his kind, Obsidian has spent the past 1,500 years fighting alongside his brothers, protecting humans from Lucifer’s demons, all while keeping to the shadows. Their mission is simple. Right up until it isn’t. The day Obsidian learns of a traitor in Heaven is the day everything changes. The entire reason for his existence is put on hold because there’s a new assignment: find the female whose soul belongs to his and protect her, no matter the cost.

Penelope Calazans spends her days sleeping and her nights serving free drinks to the gamblers looking to win big in Sin City. It’s not a glamorous life, perhaps a tad lonely, but she’s content. Or she thought she was. Then he appears. The mystery man who would turn out not to be a man at all but rather an angel. The angel who would turn Penelope's mundane life upside down, revealing what really lurks in the dark.

Not only do they have to battle the demons looking to possess their souls, but Obsidian and Penelope must overcome the obstacles that come with falling in love. In the end, an angel and a human must make the ultimate sacrifice, all in the name of a love everlasting.

So many characters

This is a very enjoyable storyline. I did get a bit lost in the beginning with all the different characters but it all fell into place as the book went on. Fantastic narration.

The story will open your heart

I have listened to a few of Nicole Edwards stories but it’s mostly more intense and more $exual . Once I saw the blurb I had to listen to it. In this one Nicole writes a great story full of fantasy but with romance in it. What happens when Angels shows themselves to the world . These Angels were sent on Earth to protect humans from the Dark Prince and his warriors. The Angels were promised to be rewarded once this mission is over and won . The hero is Obsidian . Heroine is Penelope. . They meet and things take off from there . How do the misplaced Angels fair .

Rich Miller performance was good. His voice is deep , smooth and strong. .

Thank you Audiobook Obsession for a great listen

Angels

I really enjoyed this first book, as Nicole was able to give some background information without jumping timelines to confuse the reader. Parts of this book did remind me of another series I favor quite a bit, however I believe Nicole successfully made it her own. You’ll fall in love with these characters and want to continue on. The HEA will have you smiling. I also believe dual narrative would have put the book over the top, however Rich did an excellent job as well.

🎧 Review for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

I had to look twice at who the author was when I requested this book. Nicole Edwards has branched into PN with sexy, angels protecting humanity from Satan’s demons while looking for there life mates. Beware, This story is full of steam.
Rich Miller did an excellent job narrating.

Captivating & Fascinating PNR! Great Listen🎧

This book is awesome! Nicole Edwards is one of my favorite authors, I fell in love with her work and the Walkers several years ago. She is a gifted author who writes amazing erotic romance books and it is great to see another side of her writing and creative mind as she ventures into the fantasy and paranormal romance genre. And she does not disappoint I love the imaginative world she created as well as the imaginative characters in that world. I love the whole concept of Heaven’s “Misplaced Halos” celestial warriors protecting the humans from Lucifer’s demons, this band of warriors are Angels and answer to the Archangel Michael. There are seven warriors and each one was promised eternal love, a one and only, soulmate, which they refer to as an amsouelot. But when a traitor revealed info about the Angel’s Amsouelots to Lucifer the mission for the Misplaced Halos changes, they must find their soulmate before Lucifer does. This book focuses on Obsidian, he is the oldest of the Warriors and the other six look up to him and consider him their leader. He finds his Amsouelot in Vegas, just as one of Lucifer’s soldiers does too. Penelope is human, moved to Vegas to track her brother Oliver, she got a job at a casino and that is where Obsidian first meets her. Obsidian must convince Penelope she is his soulmate, he also needs convince her he is angel and she is in danger. She, see this when things start to happen in Vegas and she agrees to go to the safety of his home in Colorado. In addition to this storyline there are plenty more going on, there is great world building and a lot to learn of their culture, the other supernatural beings, ie FAE, Vampires, different types of demons, the hierarchy of the Heaven’s above as well as what goes on in their house, different types of servants and so forth. There is a lot to learn and the characters names and what they are are all unique and uncommon names, all is presented well and explained so it is easy to follow. There is never a dull moment in this book, there is plenty of drama, action, some angst, twists and turns, some thrilling suspense and some hot romance. Nicole Edwards, thank you for this fascinating story, I am looking forward to what comes next for the Misplaced Halos.

Rich Miller is a terrific narrator and voice artist. He did a great job portraying the characters, bringing them to life, giving them their voices and personality. He set the perfect tone fo the story, captured and projected the characters emotions as well as the drama of the story into his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for the great listen🎧
