Wednesday's Favorites: Origin of Angels by Christie Rich

Welcome to Maureen's Books Wednesday's Favorites. In the Wednesday's Favorites post I will talk about a book I loved and that I think deserves a little more attention. I read popular books, but also many books that aren’t so popular (yet). In this post all sorts of books from all sorts of genre’s will have a chance to shine. Today’s Wednesday's Favorites is 'Origin of Angels' by Christie Rich, a book I read in January 2015. 

The Book: A man searches for the woman he loves. A woman fights to survive.
As the first male Elemental, Travis is a wanted man. Women fawn all over him, both fae and Elemental alike, but he only has one female on is mind—the woman who captured his heart when he was sure he’d lost it. Travis is not only determined to find her, he’s willing to go through his meddling sister, Ralya, to do it. He doesn’t care if she’s queen of the fae, if war is brewing, or if there is a price on his head. He needs to find his mystery woman before it’s too late—before he loses her to the Order or worse, to the evil Valen, who has made a bargain of his own to win back his kingdom.
Emily will do anything it takes to save her son from the Order, no matter the cost. Her heart yearns for the man who gifted her the only joy she has in her dreary world, yet the odds she will ever see Travis again are slim to none. Emily has a single desire: to raise her child. Love is beyond her reach, or so she thinks. As evil draws near, Emily must guard her heart or lose her soul to the fae who wants her to fulfill his wicked purposes.
Will Travis find Emily before she gives up, or will she fall into the hands of his enemy and be forever out of his reach? In this gripping sequel to Elemental Enmity, the stakes for control of Earth have been raised. Evil has taken hold of the mortal realm and won’t relinquish it easily. The forces of Elemental and fae must unite against the dark court if they have any chance at all of overcoming the gloom overtaking the human realm.

Praise for 'Origin of Angels':

This book was exciting, enchanting, unique, and I was completely immersed in the plot.

Now I haven't read any of Christie's books before but this was a really good read and she has a whole other Elemental series called Elemental Enmity which I will be adding to my reading list too!

This book has completely drawn me into the story of the Elementals. Like so many others, I wish I had read the previous series, but now I am off to fix that! I cannot wait to read the second book in the series. I NEED to know the story. I love the characters and want to see how things progress. I highly recommend this book!

I really did like this book. I loved reading about Travis, and the girl he just couldn’t forget. And I also really enjoyed reading about Queen Ralya and the decisions she had to make. It was easy to forget the world around me when I was reading this book. Especially the last half of this book was really exciting and I just had to keep reading.

About the Author:

I grew up daydreaming about fairytales, and my love for discovering new worlds has never died. I am not one of those writers who always knew I would write. I thought that was what other people did until one day, a few years ago, I took a challenge from a friend and typed my first words. My journey has
been wonderful, and I cannot imagine a day where I would ever give up writing. My love for reading is what fueled my imagination in the first place and still does. When I am not writing or reading, I enjoy family time with my husband and two children. My family and I live in a quiet community in Northern Utah, and I am so thankful for the rich life I have been blessed with.
