Review….The Hunted One by Meg Collette

The Hunted One COVER

Book links:

Amazon  ~  Goodreads


The fallen have trespassed into Heaven for the first time in eternity. Prepared for battle, Michaela and her Archangels open Heaven’s gates to confront the fallen. Only, Michaela’s Archangels—her brothers and sisters in Heaven—betray her. And when the fallen attack the sanctuary in the skies through the gates Michaela inadvertently left open, the holy angels accuse Michaela of planning the invasion.

One simple mistake with a thousand consequences.

Dragged to Earth by an Archangel turned fallen, Michaela will do anything to return to Heaven and save it. In her fervor, she kills the Archangel—something no angel has ever done before. Wingless, without any hope, Michaela welcomes death when an unlikely human ally, Clark, finds her. With the help of Clark and Gabriel, an innocent Archangel whose friendship deepens into something far more torrid and unexpected on Earth, Michaela must prove the holy angels have their own plan for Heaven, and it is one that may prove to be the End of the Days.

It may be too late to save herself, but Michaela is the only one who knows the truth about the holy angels. If she fails, she may never be able to return to Heaven. But even that may be a hopeless dream.


My Review:

The Hunted One is the first book in author Meg Collette’s End of Days Series and one that piqued my interest immediately after reading the synopsis.  It seemed like a new sort of twist on the whole Heaven and Hell story….well, it was….and it was awesome.

Archangel Michaela has been serving as General to the Archangels since the beginning of her existence.  It was all she had ever known.  She was charged with keeping things in line and balanced between Heaven, Earth and Hell.  She was part of the elite force in Heaven and had her friends and fellow Archangels by her side.   It was a job she performed with the utmost sincerity and respect.  She thought she had done everything right until she found herself on the other end of horrible deceit and conspiracy.  Deceit and conspiracy at the hands of her fellow Archangels…her friends.  Suddenly, everything she had thought to be pure and true was tainted and she finds herself without her friends, without her wings, and without a clue on what to do next.  She knows she has to do what she can to fight the forces of evil and save both Heaven and Earth but the problem now is that she is just Michaela….not the General Archangel.  The remaining forces in Heaven are after, wanting revenge, and the forces in hell want to assure that she is destroyed as well.  Her only hope is Clark, a human and part of a family line trusted to help the heavenly inhabitants.  Will she have what it takes to regain the trust of Heaven, bring down the forces of Hell and save the human race? That’s a whole lot of burden to carry….

I always love stories surrounding Heaven and Hell and always enjoy reading each author’s unique spin on things.  In this story, author Collette has given a darker side to characters we normally think of as good and it was exciting to read from the very first few pages.  Michaela has been an upstanding member of Heaven and has never really had anything unsavory happen to her in all her years.  Well, that poor gal was in for a really rude awakening.  From the beginning she has so many obstacles to overcome and I was worried for her the entire book.  She is being framed for some serious heavenly crimes and is being held responsible for unspeakable acts all thanks to her so-called friends.  She finds help and friendship in Clark and I adored him!  He is part of a bloodline of heavenly helpers, if you will, and really wants nothing to do with any of it.  But, in the end, not only does he help Michaela when anyone else would walk away, he does it with bluntness and honesty.  He had me laughing at the most inappropriate times because he said exactly what anyone would…even if it was a bit frank.  He may win as my favorite character.

Now, I can’t give too much away here as to why Michaela was framed by her friends and what their end goal is but trust me when I say, there were more than a few “whoa” moments had when I was reading.  This tale is woven beautifully with pieces of the puzzle slowly falling into place until the end. Oh, and the end? Michaela gives one hell of a kick ass speech, which leads me to believe she will be on a path for revenge in the next book in the series (which I can’t wait to read!).  Watch out, Team Evil….Michaela’s coming for you!

Thank you, Meg, for your unique spin on the good and the bad, Heaven and Hell….I enjoyed every minute and can’t wait for more!
