Broken Faith by Brandy Nacole

I received this book in advance for an honest review.
Book Description from "This was it. The moment Heaven and Hell would clash. But which unearthly being would win? The Fallen Angel or the Hell Hounds?

Overtaken by fear, I close my eyes.

Kayson is a Fallen Angel who has spent decades running from the Hell Hounds while searching for something that no one else believes can be so, not even God. Kayson is determined to find a Blood Child. But when a hound finds Kayson first, he is sure his end has come.
Falon, Alpha of the Hell Hounds, destroyer of the blood children, and devoted believer in his master’s plan, is bound and determined to drag Kayson back to Hell with him. 
Sabrina is a Vampire, a half-breed created from one of Lucifer’s original blood children. After years of hiding, Sabrina’s fate changes when she finds Kayson barely alive. Against her instincts, Sabrina saves him. Now she and Kayson are both marked by the Hell Hounds.
Emma is an ordinary human, whose only problem is making ends meet, and getting over the hurt caused by her untrustworthy brother. Her everyday problems become supernatural ones when she finds Kayson and Sabrina hiding in her parent’s backyard shed.

Kayson, Sabrina and Emma are unlikely allies, thrown together by chance to fight against the most powerful creatures of the underworld in order to follow their world-changing quest. But will the broken faith of one break the faith of all?"

My Reaction: I read books very quickly so when I sat down to read Broken Faith I was surprised to realize that I was finished in a matter of a couple of hours. The characters in this novel are so engaging that you genuinely feel their emotions. I absolutely loved Sabrina. Her attitude and survival instinct combined with her concern for Kayson is so sweet and amusing. The details are so realistic that I could actually imagine Sabrina’s stance and facial expressions. Kayson and Sabrina’s relationship is so refreshing because it’s not the usual: “let’s fall in love as soon as we meet each other.” I was also fascinated with their respective backstories and how they ended up the way they did. Emma slightly annoyed me at first because I was concerned about what her involvement would mean for Kayson and Sabrina. I had similar emotions as Sabrina with some of the things Emma was thinking and doing. However I am glad she was there to help in the end. The angel aspect of the novel was very well done and made sense (in the paranormal realm of course.) I genuinely felt sorry for Kayson and am glad he found what he was looking for (possible spoiler so I won’t say what).

Overall: (5/5) Broken Faith was a pleasant surprise of a novel and I sincerely hope there is a sequel coming quickly.
