“Broad at the shoulders and lean at the hips six foot and then something of ropey muscle he looks like a Spartan god who got lost in a thrift store He moves like ink through water And his eyes when you get a good look at them are silver Not gray Silver You might take their inhuman shine for fancy contact lenses You’d be wrong”Blurb“I will free them all”When Milja Petak released the fallen angel Azazel from five thousand years of imprisonment she did it out of love and pity She found herself in a passionate sexual relationship beyond her imagi Janine Ashbless pushes all the right buttons in this exciting follow up to 2015 s Cover Him With Darkness I described that first entry in the series as an intense engaging grandly imagined intelligent entertainingly well paced and very very sexy story erotic romance writ large I also noted that Cover Him With Darkness ends with a cliffhanger worthy of Lord of the Rings and leaves us breathless for It s a pleasure then to report that In Bonds of the Earth is everything fans have been waiting for taking all the elements that made the first book memorable artfully supercharging them in a sweeping action packed powerfully erotic story that dazzles with its imaginative employment of real life settings elements of ancient lore and legend and fast paced contemporary thrillersThe story is told in first person from the viewpoint of Milja somewhat wiser now after having freed fallen angel Azazel from eons of bondage she is doubtful about her lover s plan to release his brothers from their prisons in order to mount a new assault on the forces of heaven His search leads them to the labyrinth of ancient monolithic rock cut churches of Lalibela in Ethiopia where the priests wielding the rusted relics of saints guard a secret that humankind must never know No spoilers here but let s just say that the mid story climax and Ashbless way of relating it is exciting as all get outThe romantic leads are realistically imperfect here Milja is smart and beautiful but also still rather na ve not always wise in the ways of human or angelic behavior and still vulnerable where the heart not to mention her hair trigger erotic responses are concerned She describes Azazel for all his physical allure as not very bright a musclebound creature who lives in the here and now without much thought for conseuence or the feelings of others least of all Milja s I was as ever impressed by Ashbless ability to set her tale within a broad historical and cultural context without resorting to obvious data dumps or dry narrative digressions the fascinating history of Lalibela is woven so subtly into the fabric of the story as to seem perfectly of a piece with the unfolding adventure The author s erudition shines through illuminating the story without ever casting shade on the reader Milja s informal conversational style does not clash with her obvious intelligence but brings readers comfortably along never making them feel patronized or inadeuateThis entry in the series closes with a shattering cliffhanger that will have readers on the edge of their seats hearts pounding in their throats and practically howling in half fulfilled frustration I felt afterwards as if I d enjoyed an extraordinary meal coming away richly fed to be sure yet craving still able only to dream of next time Well worth the wait and let s hope the wait for the third book won t be too long In Bonds of the Earth is enthusiastically recommended
