Angels or Vampires?

Hmm. Which book would you rather read? A book about Angels or a book about Vampires.

Re: Angels or Vampires?

 I definitely prefer angels over vampires. I will read both in books, but there is something so mysterious about angels, man they just suck me in!

Re: Angels or Vampires?

No love for Zombies? I suppose if I had to choose I'd go with Vampires, but not the sparkly kind.

How about Angels a la Kevin Smith's Dogma variety.  Renegade angels.  Angels with a with a hint of naughty. 

 

In fact, any suggestions to that effect?

Re: Angels or Vampires?

I love both angels and vampires.  My latest book deals mainly with angels, but there is a vampire/angel character in the story who will eventually get his own book :smileyhappy:

 

If you'd like to check out my latest on NOOK, here's the link and blurb:

 

Shadows of the Soul by Angelique Armae

 

BN ebook - Shadows of the Soul

 

When a Grigori prince and a demon huntress team up to find the antidote to a supernatural disease, the balance between good and evil is forever altered.


A fallen angel...
A human scholar...
A race against time...


Isabel Godfroie Heart is a Paradisian Scholar-an immortal human trained in the ways of Heaven and Hell-who's suffering from memory loss. During her last battle, a dark force erased specific portions of her past life memories. Now she remembers little of times past, save for the fact she's a demon slayer mentored by the archangel Gabriel. When ordered to a new post to help translate a volume of ancient text from a forbidden verse, Isabel is forced to work with the dark prince Nicolai Valentine, a soul who may or may not be responsible for her memory loss. If only she didn't find the tempting creature so hard to resist...

 

Born to a fallen angel and a mortal mother, Nicolai Valentine is a prince of the Grigorcov, the children of the fallen sons of God. Searching for the lost chalice that will save his kin from eternal damnation, Nicky unknowingly unleashes the Hadean Virus, a dark entity targeting members of the Grigorcov. Now the entity has been unleashed on man's world and Nicky's in a race against time to find the antidote that will stop this deadly parasite. But in order to keep the Hadean virus from attacking again, Nicolai must enlist the help of Isabel Godfroie Heart, the Paradisian Scholar he was unable to save from the wrath of Hell centuries ago...

 

Thanks for letting me share!

Re: Angels or Vampires?

Great question!!! I suppose I probably lean toward more books about vampires. However that being said, some of my favorite books/stories I have read are about Angels or have angels that are integral to the plot. I guess you really can't go wrong...why not a book that has both? I'd be game.

Re: Angels or Vampires?

I think what makes Vampires so loved is that they can be the ultimate bad boy/bad girl aka the dark side in all of us.  You don't think fluff when you think Vampire.  But an angel can make just as great a character as a Vampire, especially if they're a fallen angel.

Re: Angels or Vampires?

NJMETAL... If it has anything to do with Angels then yes. And a book with a lil hint of naughty is what everyone needs. Haha! :smileywink: So i will definintely check them out.

 

Oh, & Angelique. If you like fallen angels. Check out Fallen by; Lauren Kate. Love the whole "Bad Boy" act. And i say its worthy reading.
