A man and a woman tread the lines of danger, desire, and deliverance in this novel of the Fallen Angels—from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

As the son of a serial killer, homicide detective Thomas “Veck” DelVecchio, Jr., grew up in the shadow of evil. Now, on the knife-edge between civic duty and blind retribution, he atones for the sins of his father—while fighting his inner demons.

Assigned to monitor Veck is Internal Affairs officer Sophia Reilly, whose interest in him is both professional and arousingly personal. And Veck and Sophia have another link: Jim Heron, a mysterious stranger with too many answers to questions that are deadly. When Veck and Sophia are drawn into the ultimate battle between good and evil, their fallen angel savior is the only thing that stands between them and eternal damnation.

Envy - J.R. Ward Summary

Envy (from Latin invidia) is an emotion which "occurs when a person lacks another's superior quality, achievement, or possession and either desires it or wishes that the other lacked it".Aristotle defined envy as pain at the sight of another’s good fortune, stirred by “those who have what we ought to have.” Bertrand Russell said that envy was one of the most potent causes of unhappiness. Not only is the envious person rendered unhappy by his or her envy, Russell explained, but that person may also wish to inflict misfortune on others, in forms of emotional abuse and violent acts of criminality. Although envy is generally seen as something negative, Russell also believed that envy was a driving force behind the movement of economies and must be endured to achieve the "keep up with Jones" system. He believed this is what helps to maintain democracy, a system where no one can achieve more than anyone else...

Sad they end5 star

Great book. Great books. The Brotherhood series is still my all time favorite, but hate for this series toned as well. Takes way to long for a new book to hit the shelves. But I will wait. 55

Great book5 star

I love this series. Could not put it down. The Black Dagger Brotherhood series are also great. The men in these books are so rough, tough, and full of passion. I cannot wait for the next one. Love it! 55


Envy5 star

This book was exactly the right tempo. Was a great way to continue Veck's story from Lover Unleashed. I loved the link to the Brotherhood and the justice Throe brings to the table. Looking forward to seeing where the rest of his story goes. As for Envy- it is my favorite Fallen Angel so far. It grabbed me from the get go. Some parts so sad but never disappointing. Covet is a very close second. Hoping we will see Lassiter make an appearance in this series or in either series. I have a feeling that will be a GREAT read. Bottom line loved it! Can hardly wait for the next one. 55
