Dark Angel Box set 1-5 Review

Dark Angel Box Set 1-5
Written by: Hanna Peach
Published: August 7, 2015
Series: Dark Angel

Goodreads Synopsis:

Forget everything you know about angels…
You’ll likely find Alyxandria slicing demons with her blades rather than plucking at harp strings. Whether it's with weapons, unarmed or with the “borrowed magics” of distilled angel-blood tattoos, she trains harder than any other Seraphim warrior to prove she is nothing like her parents who abandoned her to become Rogues. After a series of confusing visions, Alyx saves Israel, a mysterious mortal who knows too much. She discovers she has been chosen as his Guardian. There’s just one problem. She is forbidden to even see him again.Why does he need protecting? And from who? The web of lies she uncovers will shatter her world. An Elders’ dark plan, a keye to unlock Hell, and a prophecy that warns of the greatest war this Earth will ever know….
it begins in Angelfire.

After escaping from the Hollows, Jordan takes Alyx and Israel to Aradale, a secret Rogue community, where they appear to be safe − for now. But did they bring the enemy with them? “Mini”, the strange and speechless young girl they rescued from the Hollows, is not as she seems. Why was Elder Michael keeping her locked up? What is she hiding? Out in the mortal cities, pieces of Black Stone, the only material that can disrupt the angels’ healing abilities, continue to be stolen to make weapons for Samyara’s dark army. Alyx and her friends must stop them, but this means infiltrating holy and guarded places to steal the Black Stone − a monastery in remote China, a mosque in Saudi Arabia, an art gallery in Florence and a cathedral in Peru.
Can they win this deadly race against the Darkened?

If he dies, she dies…
Israel lies dying from a poisoned knife wound. To save him, Alyx needs Mayrekk’s help and the knowledge contained within the Threads of Dark. But Mayrekk remains imprisoned in Michaelea, being punished for his hand in Alyx’s escape, and Michael himself guards the key to Mayrekk’s freedom. And the Threads of Dark is kept within a secret chamber deep under the Archives of Urielos, a Seraphim city clinging to cliffs somewhere along the coast of Italy. Even if Alyx does manage to find a way into the city, the chamber is guarded by ancient riddles and deadly traps.
Can Alyx rescue Mayrekk and retrieve the Threads of Dark before Israel slips away?

Seven days…
Israel seems…different since he came out of his coma. His life has been saved but Alyx had to make a deal with the devil to do so. She has to hand Israel over to Lucifer unless she finds a way to defeat Samyara. But to do this Alyx will need Israel and Jordan, the two men fighting for her heart, to work together. Can they put aside their differences long enough to defeat Samyara? Seven days until Israel is sentenced to Hell. Seven days to find Samyara. Seven days to raise an army.
This will be Alyx’s greatest battle yet.

The thrilling conclusion to the Dark Angel series…
Everything about Michael’s dark plan has been hidden – until now. On an island off the coast of Egypt, a fourth Seraphim city has been discovered; a city that doesn’t appear on any Seraphim map.

 Brandi's Thoughts:
I absolutely recommend this series to everyone who reads supernatural/fantasy. It had me hooked from the beginning and I spent many nights up late reading. With continuous action and amazing descriptive writing you cannot go wrong with reading these. And the great thing, this series is still on going!! So exciting! For me it was a different story line on the ever growing popularity of supernatural/fantasy reads. Some are so similar they start blending together. Hanna's Dark Angel series definitely stands out and she does an amazing job of creating her own world, which is described beautifully in a way that is easy to imagine the books as if you're watching a movie.

 Plus, by getting the box set you get to read all 5 books straight without waiting in between :)
