5 STARS for Deena Remiel's "RELIC"



Raphael, a Brethren Savior, an angel with a forgotten past, has lost his power to heal and is on a self-imposed guilt trip to get it back. If he can’t, his tour of eternal duty as Brethren Savior will be revoked. On his journey, he winds up enmeshed in a web of attempted murder and resurrection, all thanks to a woman he’s only seen in a photograph and by chance on an Arizona desert hiking trail.

Serena Sikes is a wanted woman. Desired by “undesirables” for a gift her brother gave her—a stolen relic with suspected healing powers. Hunted down in the Arizona desert and left for dead, she is found by none other than the angel who cannot heal.

Raphael and Serena are inexorably bound together, for locked deep within the relic’s heart had lived the soul of his long lost wife. Now, it resides inside Serena. Evil lurks around every corner as Raphael tries to keep both Serena and his dead wife’s soul alive and lustful temptation at bay.

Three souls bound together by an ancient relic, bound by a timeless gift, and bound by a love that is eternal.

This is Book 2 in Deena Remiel's "Brethren Series".  I thought book 1 was absolutely fabulous and Books 2 "RELIC" does not disappoint it was equally wonderful. 
Raphael is an Angel "Savior" but has lost his great power to heal.  He has no clue why but feels he is being punished for something that happened in his past.  Serena who owns her own guided tours business receives a gift from her brother that changes her life into a nightmare and only "The Brethren Savior" can save her.  

Deena weaved a wonderful web and managed to untangle it beautifully.  Serena is a complicated mix of different personalities and so well described that you are able to discern the personalities from each other, no small feat in writing.  Raphael is the perfect majestic brooding hero,  having lost and loved. He is scared to love again. 

The story was well crafted, keeping you wondering what could possibly happen next.  I adore Deena's sense of humour, her characters really come alive on the page with snappy comebacks.  You'll catch yourself giggling and shaking your head.

I recommend you give this book a read and it's a great stand-alone book, but to really get everything out of the story you must read it as a series.  Your sure to dream of Angels after reading it!

5 STARS!
