Book Review for **Danann Frost Falls from Grace ** by Joanne Valiukas

Ive decided that since this was one of my favourite of many books I have read so I am posting a rewiew  .

Danann Frost is thousands of years old, yet young for her kind. She is a creature of the Light, an Angel...one of the Seraphim; a race of beings that live beyond our world. She has been cast out of paradise and Fallen from Grace, all for the love of a Dark One...a vampire. The only problem is...Seth did not want her and told her to go and not come back. Danann has made a life for herself amongst the vampires of this world and they protect her fragile nature. She and the vampire Asher live on the fringes of the human world; love and loyalty cannot separate them but trouble and vengeance is on its way.
After two hundred years of enduring the crippling punishments of her Fall, Seth walks back into her life but he is bitter and angry and out for revenge. Thank God he is after someone else...or is he?
Can Danann escape the dark intentions of her once-beloved for whom she Fell from Grace, or has she put all those that she holds dear in danger? Journey with Danann as she takes the path to taking back her Light and ascending to be Angel once more. Will the Archangel Uriel surrender her Light or will Danann be doomed to walk in darkness forever?

My review ::
First of all I must say I totally enjoyed this romance. Being a true romantic at heart and loving the parnormal books I was left with an ache in my heart, wanting more and wanting to know where this love took Danann and Seth once again. Angel and Vampire not your normal vampire romance. Unique !
In this parnormal romance, Joanne has created a world around Danann a Fallen Angel ** Seths godess** and Seth A vampire prince. Danann falls from grace, to be with her love Seth to be only thrown into a world of hurt, betrayl and darkness.Danann is saved from her death bed after falling to be taken and  cared for by the priests sister and after years pass and Deidre dies Danann goes to Australia and lives her life with vampires.She works at a night club during the night, She feels safe with them, she can only walk in the night  due to her curse and lives her life around the ones who make her feel safe. If she walks in the light she ceases to exist , she shatters and often looses her memory.
She is unable to have contact with humans, there  touch  brings out the physical aspects , she feels how they feel whether it be hate, lust or anything, she feels what they feel and she is unable to stop herself and this can get her into alot of trouble at times.
The story continues Seth and Danann are reunited after 200 years of being seperated, can they forgive each other, find there true love again or will all evail and Danann reaches to find her light and regain her wings.
The characters development is fantastic, the chapters well in unisen, flowing freely and on a uphill bolt to the end.  With so much detail it is important that you read every detail, this all adds to a fantastic read. Be sure to read the Glossary in the begining of the book this will also  give light to certain aspects involved throughout  this book.
I enjoyed the characters much so, falling in love with Ash and Seth both there love for Danann on differnt levels but unique.
 Seth is  a romantic at heart his love for Danann passionate there love an unsure battle throughout,a rollercoaster  but will true love find  there way.
The ending was a cliffhanger and we are now left to wander   how Dananns life goes on from her confrontation with Uriel and once again falling from Grace.
I recomend this to all who enjoy a great love story, it contains some *saucy* parts, ;) and the ending not your every day happy ending but leaves it open for more to come.. Can not wait for **Embraces
