Emma Jane Hellsbane just found out she’s not human—or, at least, not only human. She’s half angel, too, and now Heaven’s got a job for her: round up all the Fallen angels and their red-skinned, horned devil-demon minions and boot their butts back into the abyss. Only problem? The demons and their Fallen masters fight back…and they don’t fight fair.
Luckily for Emma, she can put a stop to the constant threat of having her head hacked off if she figures out which Fallen angel is her father—and then kill him before he kills her. Of course, in the meantime, she’ll have to 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 one said being Heaven’s bounty hunter would be easy. But with a name like Hellsbane, Emma Jane was born for the job.

Emma Jane is minding her own business, living her normal life when fate comes knocking at her door…literally. Now Emma Jane has to learn all about being a sword carrying half angel. I enjoyed Emma Jane’s character so much. She is one of those kick butt heroin's that you get to watch grow into their gifts. I loved that she battled with who she was and where her power came from, it made her seem more real to me.
Emma Jane has help figuring out all these new angelic changes: Tommy, a half angel warrior like Emma Jane. Also there is Eli an angel who is charged with training half angels and watching what goes on on earth. LOVED Tommy and Eli!!! Tommy has that boyish charm, but he was deadly when he needed to be. I really felt for him, because before Emma Jane he has been fighting alone for a long time. Eli is the man everyone would want but no one could have, because the moment Eli slips he will turn into a fallen angel, and that is what Tommy and Emma Jane hunt.
I loved Paige Cuccaro’s style of writing! I love Urban Fantasy anyway but Hellsbane was very visual. Cuccarro has this way of pulling you into a scene--I was smelling the brimstone, and feeling the black goo that at one time was a demon. I never felt like the pace wavered, there was a constant flow to the story.
My only problem with Helsbane is that I have to wait for the sequel to come out. I have to find out what the secret is about Emma Jane! The end of the book isn’t a cliffhanger parse, but the fallen angel that Emma Jane fights at the end of Hellsbane opens up a lot of questions that I need answers to ASAP!!!
Loved it! I want to know about everything this author writes.
