Noah’s task is to kill ten demons to gain entry to Avalon and join the Nephilim team to battle Demons. Things have been running smoothly until Raven tags along, and the baggage seems to be heavier as Raven is only a normal human being.

The Angel Trials
She thought magic didn’t exist. She was so, so wrong.
Raven Danvers is a typical college student… until she’s attacked by a demon on the night of her twenty-first birthday. Luckily, she’s saved by Noah—a mysterious, sexy wolf shifter who appears and disappears in the blink of an eye.
When Raven returns home, she discovers her mom has been abducted by the same demon who came after her. And who turns up at the scene of the crime again? Noah. He’s hunting the demons who are taking humans, and he’s ultimately heading to the place where Raven needs to go to save her mom—the mystical island of Avalon.
Now Raven’s tagging along on Noah’s demon hunting mission whether he wants her there or not. And he makes it no secret that his journey would be a lot easier without her dragging him down. But Raven isn’t going anywhere, so she and Noah will have to learn to work together—if they don’t kill each other first.
Surprisingly, I quite like this first book sequel to The Vampire Wish Series. I guess it’s because there aren’t many POVs or stories from different characters alternating between them, making the storytelling run smoothly.
Those who haven’t read The Vampire Wish Series must be wondering about Noah’s background story or Raven’s nightmare, the flashback, and what happened during the solo backpacking in Europe. As I have already read the series, it’s no longer a mystery for me.
However, there’s still the fact that I do not know about Raven, and I look forward to reading the next book and finding out why the greater demon, Azazel kidnapped Raven’s mum and also getting to know Sage, a new character in the Dark World.
The Angel Hunt
The hunt for demons is about to heat up.
Somehow Raven has convinced Noah and Sage—the two wolf shifters who saved her from a demon attack—to let her tag along on their quest to kill ten demons.
The payoff for completing the mission? Entrance to the mystical island of Avalon, where Raven will go through trials to gain the strength she needs to save her mom’s life.
Raven wants to help the shifters on their quest. But Noah refuses to put her in any danger—which makes no sense, since he hates her. At least she thinks he hates her… until he catches her off guard and kisses her. Suddenly they’re connected in ways she doesn’t understand, and she feels closer to him than ever.
If she didn’t know any better, she’d think they imprinted on each other. But that’s impossible. Because shifters can’t imprint on humans.
And if they did imprint on each other, then the supernatural world is changing—and Raven’s right in the center of it.
The second book in the series is getting better with more exciting plots to look forward to, such as the betrayal that soon will break Sage’s heart, Sage’s story with the Vampire, the romance between Noah and Raven, and of course, the ongoing mission to hunt the remaining Demons.
The ending leaves you with a cliffhanger as high as Mount Everest! Luckily, I have the next book ready to be read. So, as soon as I finish with this review, I’m going to jump back into the Dark World and discover if Noah will keep his promise and tell Raven about the imprint thingy.
The Angel Trap
Be careful who you trust, or you might walk into a trap.
After putting her neck on the line to save Noah and Sage’s lives, Raven is on the brink of death. The only thing that might save her? Vampire blood.
The problem is, no one’s supposed to know that vampire blood can heal humans. Anyone who finds out will be silenced. Which means Sage and Noah need to take Raven to a vampire they can trust. But shifters don’t normally trust vampires, so they only know one vampire who fits that category.
Thomas Bettencourt is a vampire prince who rules an elite coven in Chicago. And thanks to his secret history with Sage, he might be willing to save Raven’s life. But only if they agree to his conditions.
Now they have two choices—accept Thomas’s demands, or let Raven die. And after imprinting on Raven, Noah will do anything to ensure she survives.
Even if that means making a deal with a vampire.
Want to know the ending of this book? Refer to the title! Aside from that obvious answer to their quest, the romance parts are picking up pace, and I’m pleased with the couples. I just wished they had more time before they got trapped!
I felt so bad for Sage, and I was hoping the binding ceremony would be interrupted, but it didn’t happen. Anyway, I’m interested in reading more about Mara. She might be the key to helping Sage and Flint free from the trouble that Flint brought over to the pack.
I can’t wait to read the next book, the Angel Gift. Might it be about Raven and her Gift? It has been an ongoing mystery since the first book, and I think it’s about time we learn about her gift!
The Angel Gift
Everyone is separated, and no one is safe.
Raven Danvers didn’t think her life could get any crazier since the night a demon attacked her in an alley and abducted her mom.
She was wrong.
Because now that same demon has abducted her too. He’s thrown her into a secret bunker with a group of humans who have unique abilities that make them “gifted.” They don’t know what the demons want with them, and the bunker is impossible to escape.
Her only hope is Noah—the wolf shifter she’s imprinted upon. She just needs to let him know where she is. But she can’t do it alone. Her only way to get a message to him is to team up with the other humans by making use of their unique gifts.
But they have to do it fast. Because their time in the bunker is temporary. The demons are prepping them to go somewhere else… somewhere far worse than where they are now.
They don’t know what this place is.
They just know they really, really don’t want to find out.
One thing is for sure, there’s still no clear information as to what Raven’s gift would be. The story focuses on the imprint bonds communication attempt between Raven and Noah, plus some insights into Thomas’s talent and effort in rescuing Sage.
It’s more on the boy’s side’s POVs – Thomas and Noah plus Raven’s daily life, plotting etc., while in captivity. I’m curious about Jessica tho, is her story ended there? It’s weird to read a final moment from the character; it leaves a bitter taste 🤨.
Was it the same experience with Raven’s mum before moving to the next ‘stage’? How are they going to break the ancient blood binding for Sage? I can’t wait to read the next one. Now I have more questions and only three more books to go!
The Angel Island
The journey to Avalon is full of trials, and not everyone who ventures there is welcome.
After escaping the bunker where she was held captive by demons, Raven’s finally safe with Noah, the wolf shifter she imprinted upon. And they saved all the other prisoners in the process.
Their next destination? The mythical island of Avalon. There, Raven will enter the Angel Trials so she can become a Nephilim and help fight in the war against the demons.
But it turns out the trials don’t start on the island. They start before it. Because only the worthy are allowed entrance to Avalon.
Many challenges await. Challenges that will separate every person in their group, push them harder than they imagined possible, and force them to make insanely difficult decisions.
Who will be worthy enough to enter Avalon? Who will be turned away?
I’m glad that Jessica is back on the story, and we also finally arrived in Avalon. The journey to reach this point takes so long. It’s longer for Noah as he needs to kill ten demons to gain entry, and it doesn’t stop there; he also has to pass the simulation test, which we read in Raven’s POV.
This complacent potion is a pain in the ass potion, and if I am not mistaken, the team has no idea about Sage under its influence before she gets the blood binding. Maybe they will find a loophole in this. So far, there’s still no solution for Sage or news about Raven’s mum’s whereabouts yet.
We also read about Jacen, the character from the Vampire Wish series, but Annika has yet to appear in the story. I am so looking forward to reading the moment Annika meets Raven, and I’m curious about what has been done in the Avalon realm after the last bit of information we read in the Vampire War book.
The Angel Secret
Welcome to Avalon Academy—where supernaturals train, and only the strong survive.
After a long journey across the country, Raven has finally made it to the hidden island of Avalon. But she can’t rest yet. Because she still needs to enter the Angel Trials, become a Nephilim, and save her mom from the greater demon holding her hostage.
She knew the Angel Trials were going to be hard. But nothing could prepare her for what she learns when she gets to Avalon. Because the leader of the island—the Earth Angel—has been keeping a secret.
A secret so devastating it could ruin all hope of the supernaturals ever winning the war against the demons.
I read this in one sitting while on my journey back on a train from Luxor to Cairo. I might also read the last book since I have yet to arrive at my destination. The story is fascinating and engaging since we finally get to read what the Angel Trial is about, the catch and find out what happens in Avalon.
It’s getting more intense as we’re nearing the end. I’m sure we’ll read about the battle, the trial, the rescue mission, the bonding ceremony, the wedding, etc. There’s so much to cover, and I’m super excited to continue reading than writing a review 😜. It will be an action-packed book next! Trust me!
The Angel Test
It’s time for Raven Danvers to face the Angel Trials.
After months of training, Raven’s finally ready to compete in the Angel Trials. If she succeeds, she’ll earn the right to drink angel blood from the Holy Grail, which will give her Nephilim blood.
No human has yet to drink angel blood from the Grail and survive. But Raven’s gift of stubbornness makes her special. She survived countless times during the cross country demon hunt with her shifter soul mate Noah, even though she should have died.
She doesn’t plan to stop surviving now.
Because the greater demon Azazel is holding Raven’s mom and best friend Sage hostage. To free them, she has to kill Azazel. She can only do that if she’s a Nephilim.
So that’s exactly what Raven plans on becoming.
An excellent conclusion to this series with satisfaction insured! Besides answering all the questions, it also gives us a clue as to what to expect in the next two series to come in Dark World, and it’s looking good!
It’s hard not to jump straight to the next series and find out how it’s going to play out. Luckily I have it all ready to roll! The books in the series so far are all easy to read, short and enjoyable, tho some plots are easily predicted, but there are still some surprises awaiting.
Those who like to read books about humans being thrust into a supernatural world and have to work along with Angels, Werewolves and Witches to fight Demons, please read this series. You may start with the previous series, the Vampire Wish, followed by this current series, the Angel Trials, then the Faerie Games series and lastly, the Dragon Twins series.
