| Cooper Truhart is in actuality Juphiel, a fallen angel whose sole purpose id to find his human muse and impregnate her with his monster Nephilim offspring. He figures he will forgo that dubious pleasure and just lay back and chill for a bit. Pyxion is a Sinistari demon, her sole purpose is to hunt and kill the Fallen before a Nephilim is concieved.
I was very conflicted by this book. There is no clear cut good and bad guy in this story. Well, there is but I'm not quite ready to get struck down and smited just yet, so I'm not even going to go there. Cooper, bless his little hunky heart, just wants to find his halo, reclaim his soul and live a mortal life on the earth realm. He has a very warm, and humorous side. When Pyx and Cooper first meet up in Paris, Cooper is on a dance floor in the midst of a gaggle of babes getting his freak on, in a kilt and combat boots no less. Pyx, who is still confused because she thought she was a male until the tattoo guy hit on her, is all fired up to carve Cooper's heart right out of his chest. Their relationship or battle, if you will, is hilarious. It reads really quickly and the situation changes from page to page. It will definitely hold your interest. Quite a unique take and I guess I'll start picking up the Harlequins again. Who'd a thunk it?

Wanting to be a part of mankind, the angel fell--losing his halo, the prize that held his earthbound soul. Now Cooper must retrieve it. But wherever the Fallen walk, a Sinistari demon intent on slaying one is not far behind. Cooper knows he must be wary of this demon. But his first encounter with her leaves him curiously hungering for more....To reclaim her own soul, Pyxion must kill an angel. Not just "any" angel, but one who's fallen to earth and taken on an irresistible, seductive human form. She never expected that she would feel an attraction for the man she hunted--or that she might need his help. When faced with a powerful mutual threat, she and Cooper form an alliance. But as the danger heightens, so does the passion...and if they give in, all could be lost.
Hauf is definitely keeping my interest level high with this series. The plot and selected H/h for Fallen was unexpected, but delightful: I appreciate that in Fallen, Hauf challenged herself (and her readers) by not retracing the fallen(angel)-seeking-his-muse as the main plotline that she already introduced in Angel Slayer (Book 1). This angel/muse thing appears to be the series core plot, but by deftly adjusting perspective and character focus in each new entry, Hauf keeps it exciting (at least for me). I could tell from reading book 1 that the potential for more inter-species matchups could get very interesting in her angel/demon universe (with vamps, halo hunters and muses swirled in for spice - heh heh.) Hauf did not disappoint with Fallen. I don't want to spoil it for anyone - the HEA wasn't spectacular, but certainly very satisfying after everything the H/h had been through in the story. Would that all conflicts ended in happy marriages (whoops - does that qualify as a spoiler? My bad.)
