Review: Hellsbane (Book One) by Paige Cuccaro

Hellsbane (Book One) by Paige Cuccaro

Amazon Product Description:

Emma Jane Hellsbane always knew she was different, but she had no idea she wasn't even human. Well, at least she's half-human. She's half-fallen angel, too, and now dear ol' dad wants her dead. All the Fallen angels want all their troublesome offspring removed from the mortal coil so she's trying not to take it personally. Besides, she wants him dead just as much. Her father's death is the only way she'll be forgiven for his sin, stop those pesky demons from trying to hack off her head, and have any hope at all of getting back to a normal life as a wicked slick Intuitive Consciousness Explorer.
Of course, first she'll have to figure out which fallen angel is her father, avoid accidentally seducing her angelic mentor, help an old friend conquer his own fallen sperm donor, and basically save the world from a cataclysmic divine smack down.
No problem. With a last name like Hellsbane, Emma Jane was definitely born for the job.

My thoughts:
This is a entertaining story! Fallen angels, demon hunting half-angels, what more could you ask for!  Add in a little high school crush and the fate of the human race - you've got an idea of what to expect from this one!  Paige Cuccaro has given us:  Fantastic characters, a realistic setting, an original spin on "new" religion and the idea of angels.  I LOVE Emma!  
It's an action packed thrill ride!  Don't let this one pass you by!
     Here's a piece of one of my favorite parts: 
"You're an amazing woman, Emma Jane. Truly the flesh-and-blood finger of God. You humble me."
"Dude, you've got it all wrong. This isn't duty, This is revenge."
