Review Tour for THE CHOSEN KNIGHTS (The Angel Knights #2) by Mary Ting! 

About THE CHOSEN KNIGHTS (The Angel Knights Book 2) 

A page turning mystery with a supernatural twist that entertains to the last page! ~InD'tale Magazine  

When teens go missing in Hawaii, a group of demon-hunters—half human and half angel—disguised as high school students, must leave Crossroads, the place where they reside. In a race against time, they uncover the mystery connecting the missing teens, which dates back to the era of the Knights Templar. However, when they discover one of the Templars passed down a book containing all the secrets and codes to finding a particular treasure, they soon realize this forbidden treasure needs to be found before Cyrus, the lord of the possessor demons, acquires it—a treasure which been safeguarded and hidden from him.  

There is only one problem: the pages containing the clues leading to the treasure is missing. When the first page is found, Cyrus threatens to kill more descendants of the Knights Templar if it is not given to him by Friday the thirteenth. In the midst of threats and discovery, the demon-hunting angels find they are not alone when supernatural beings begin to reveal themselves. Can they put their differences aside and work together to solve the Knights Templars’ cipher? As they astral travel to the past, they witness a lot more than they have bargained for. And some things are better left unseen.

Teaser of The Chosen Knights (Book 2by Mary Ting: 

“It’s beautiful.” I breathed. How this pendant, which was the size of his thumb, could give off so much light was unfathomable. 
“Isn’t it?” Eli agreed, staring intensely at me while taking a step toward me. 
My heart pounded mercilessly from his words. A hint of playfulness was behind his tone, especially since he wasn’t staring at his pendant but directly at me. 
“Umm.” My face flushed. I changed the subject. “We need to get back to our friends. They’re worried about us, and they might need our help.” 
He took another step, followed by my backward step. We continued that way for several steps more until I bumped into a tree.  
“They’ll be fine,” he said. “Time stands still when we astral travel. It sounds strange, but we could be here for days, and only seconds will have passed in the present.” Eli stood before me with hunger in his eyes. The nearness of his six-foot-plus strong and masculine body caused fluttering feelings to erupt in my stomach.  
“What are you, Eli?” I tried to break whatever was happening between us because God help me, I was falling. 
Eli cupped my face tenderly with the palms of his hands. With his eyes deeply set on me, I imagined he could see right through my soul. “I am...everything,” he answered softly but sternly. Then he paused to brush his lips ever so gently on mine. “And you...are my girl with wings.” I was frozen in place, as stiff as the tree trunk supporting my back. The only thing that moved was my chest and my heart racing at the same speed as his. Just before he crushed his lips onto mine, he said in somber tone, “You will be the destruction of me.”

Pages: 328
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal

I received this book for free from Barclay Publicity in exchange for an honest review.

This book is so flawless! I loved every moment of it, and I could NOT put this book down! The story really grips you and imprints on you right from the first page. I love stories that start out with a lot of action and jump right into the story, and The Chosen Knights really fits the bill.

The first thing that I noticed about The Chosen Knights is how smooth Mary Ting's writing is. The words flow together immaculately. I loved how the world building was created in a way that reading about it did not feel tedious. The world building and the character development are both woven so beautifully together.

The character development was really spectacular. Especially for the main character, Lucia. The book is told in first person from Lucia's point of view. I loved experiencing all of her conflicting emotions alongside her. I also admired how she stayed true to herself, even though she was unsure whether or not to let her emotions take over.

The plot was quite compelling. I adore stories with angels and demons. What makes The Chosen Knights stand out is the unique angle in which Mary Ting presents by adding the Knights Templar into the story. I've never seen this done before in an urban fantasy, and I adore the originality that it brings to this tale. The story has the perfect amount of action, romance, and mystery.

I loved the romance in this book! It was slow and had the perfect amount and sweetness and temptation. I adored every moment.

It is worth mentioning that The Angel Knights series is a spin-off of Mary Ting's Crossroads series. If you have not read the Crossroads series, fret not! The Angel Knights series can be read as a stand-alone series as well. I have not yet read the Crossroads series, and I was able to follow along without any problems. (Although, I am definitely going to be reading Mary Ting's Crossroads series very soon!)

I am highly anticipating the release of the next book in this series! (And by that I mean that I need the next book more than oxygen.) I have hands down found a new favorite series and a new favorite author! You will not be disappointed that you read this!

Check out the entire Angel Knights series!

About THE ANGEL KNIGHTS (The Angel Knights Book 1) 

Michael and Claudia’s decision to move back to Crossroads was to keep their children safe, but they can’t escape who they are. Their children, Zachary and Lucia, were destined to be demon hunters—Venators. From the age they were able to hold a sword, they were trained to become the best and to ensure they would become leaders one day.   

All is peaceful throughout the land until the Fallen and demons’ presences were felt in the between and on Earth. As the Venators investigate these locations, they will quickly learn how dangerous their lives are. Hearts will be broken. Teammates will lose their lives. And they will face obstacles which will test their faith.   

As danger grows, the fear of fallen angels and demons regrouping has the Divine Elders on pins and needles. Now, Zachary and Lucia, along with Uncle Davin, must prepare themselves—mentally and physically—to live on Earth to investigate where the focal point of evil resides before it’s too late.

Review of The Angel Knights (The Angel Knights #0.5)

The Angel Knights
Series: The Angel Knights #0.5
Author: Mary Ting
Publisher: Mary Ting

I received this book for free from Barclay Publicity in exchange for an honest review.

This was a fantastic start to what, I can only anticipate, is going to be an incredible series! It certainly set the stage, and I immediately wanted to delve into The Chosen Knights after finishing this prequel novella. The Angel Knights is very short, and to the point. There is plenty of action packed into its short pages, and a lot of anticipation from the characters. The writing had a great flow.

The series centers around Venators, or demon hunters. If you are a fan of angels and demons, then you will love this series!

I think that it is important to point out that this series is a spin-off of Mary Ting's Crossroads series. It is equally important to point out that this new series can also be read as a stand-alone series. You do not have to have read the Crossroads series to understand or like The Angel Knights. I have not read Mary Ting's Crossroads series yet, and I loved this! I never felt lost, or as though I was missing key information. I will definitely be starting Mary Ting's Crossroads series in the near future!

About THE BLESSED KNIGHTS (The Angel Knights Book 3) 

Eli, Lucia's half-demon love interest, has been stabbed with a true-cross dagger and captured by Cyrus, master of the possessor demons. 

The Chosen Knights must work together once again not only to save Eli, but also to decipher a clue to find the second missing page of Jacques de Molay's journal. Meanwhile, Uncle Davin informs Crossroads Divine Elders of the danger ahead and learns there is much more to fear. 

Countless children are being taken from all over the world to be turned into demons. 

Michael, one of the Divine Elders, has no choice but to intervene. The Chosen Knights track down Mortem, the demon who is the key to finding Cyrus, and learn they must travel deep into the pit of a Hawaiian volcano. 

When they astral travel to the past in search of a clue and follow Jacques de Moley to Roselyn Chapel in medieval Scotland, what they find will rewrite history.
