Summary : (as quoted from Mary Ann Loesch’s website)
Don't let him brand your soul...

Tattoo artist Nathan Ink—an angel secretly living on earth—forces his clients to face their flaws by tattooing images of their sins on their bodies. In the urban fantasy, Nephilim, this little glimpse into the soul often results in his client’s death. Though Nathan shuns the other angels, when he is asked to keep an eye on Faye, an attractive nightclub singer being stalked by a malevolent being, he reluctantly agrees.

Faye is a nephilim (half angel/half human) and unaware of her stalker. She believes the other angels have asked her to investigate Nathan because of the high mortality rate of his clients. Despite her distaste for his methods, Faye discovers that Nathan is not a rogue and is forced to question her mission. Unwittingly she learns her stalker’s secret: he’s also a nephilim whose twisted plot is to exterminate the angels and breed a new race of beings with Faye. Knowing this, she realizes that teaming up with Nathan and using his unique artistic abilities may be the only way to stop this nephilim’s hellish plans.

My thoughts :
Nephilim was a very fun read. I really liked the two main characters, Faye and Nathan. Faye is a strong willed woman, a beautiful lady with a unique sense of sarcasm, a lot of nerve, and a lot of heart - oh, and she happens to be half angel, too. Nathan is the superior bad boy who, when you get to know him, is actually pretty sweet. He’s also a full blood angel, and a tattoo artist who specializes in tattoos of the Seven Deadly Sins. The story starts when Faye is asked to investigate Nathan, as all of his clients seem to enter misfortune after receiving a tattoo by him. The thing is, Nathan doesn’t seem all that bad, and even worse, she might actually be falling for him. And while Faye is keeping an eye on Nathan, Nathan is keeping an eye on her. I really wasn’t expecting all of the twists and turns in the plot, and, oh my, I was definitely not expecting that ending. Nephilim is a very fun, slow-paced, enjoyable read, and I recommend it to anyone looking for an intriguing new angel story.
4.5/5
