Angels and Demons

Have you binge watched Good Omens? Are you already anticipating season five of Lucifer? If so, check out some of these books where angels aren’t always pure and demons aren’t necessarily evil.

Larissa Ione’s Demonica series features a family of demons all living on earth and running a demon hospital. Between trying to provide medical care to their community and fight off the Aegis, a group of human demon slayers, they must contend with their specific demon breed issues and other curses. Start with Pleasure Unbound featuring the oldest brother, Eidolon.  

In Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series, the immortal guards protecting Pandora’s sealed box end up bound with the demons that are released when the box is opened. When Ashlyn Darrow, a human who hears voices from the past, meets Maddox, the one bound to the demon Violence, she finds silence for the first time in her life. But can Maddox protect her from the demon within and the humans that are hunting them both? Find out in The Darkest Night, the first book in the series.

Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series features angels and archangels who rule the world along with vampires and the human hunters necessary to keep them in check. In the first book, Angels’ Blood, hunter Elena Devereaux is hired by the Archangel Raphael and the Cadre of Ten, the governing body of angels, to hunt a crazed archangel who is slaughtering swaths of the human population and will soon target the archangels.

In the Fallen Angels series by JR Ward, the fallen angel Jim Heron must save the souls of seven people who are battling the seven deadly sins in order to save the world. In Covet, the first book, Jim is tasked with saving Vin diPietro from the deadly sin of greed. The biggest problem? Vin’s fiancée Devina who is actively trying to undermine Jim and his mission.

The Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole features every kind of paranormal creature you can think of, including demons. Try Demon from the Dark featuring demon vampire hybrid – or vemon – Malkom who has been in hiding until the witch Carrow is blackmailed into hunting him down. Or check out Wicked Abyss where demon Sian has waited centuries for revenge on the woman who cursed him.

Not sure you want to try a series? Check out Something More than Night by Ian Tregillis. Fallen angel Bayliss and human soul turned angel Molly investigate the murder of the archangel Gabriel and the theft of the Trumpet of Jericho in this noir detective novel that turns the conventional idea of heaven and angels on its head.
