Review: Highborn by Yvonne Navarro

Release Date: October 26, 2010
Publisher: Pocket
ISBN: # 9781439191736
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Award-winning author of over twenty novels enters the urban fantasy genre with a story of a fallen angel who returns to human form to gain redemption.


Brynna is a fallen angel trying to earn redemption. She’s escaped from Hell in search of a new life on Earth, but Lucifer’s deadliest hunters are hot on her trail. Police Detective Eran Redmond is after her for a different reason: he needs Brynna to help him find a serial killer who is terrifying Chicago . . . and the trail leads them right to Hellspawned demons of the most dangerous kind. She’s also got a very human problem: dealing with a stubborn, attractive cop who makes her long for everything she knows she can’t have.

Staying alive long enough to earn a shot at Heaven will mean breaking some major rules in the mortal world, as she learns just how complicated and wonderful being human can be. With so much stacked against her, even Brynna has to wonder if she’s crazy. But she’s not giving in without a fight.

Not a chance in Hell. . . .

Brynna has escaped from Hell and is looking for redemption. She is being hunted by Hells hunters right from the start. In the beginning she witnesses a murder and ends up being arrested by Detective Eran Redmond and he ends up helping set her out with clothes and a job and they slowly start gravitating towards being more than friends. Eran of course at first doesn't believe her when she tells him who she is and what exactly is killing people. Brynna is adjusting to the human world and pretty naive when it comes to modern things. She is so used to life in hell that she is very detached from human emotion. She really knows how to kick butt and ends up helping a lot more people then she probably planned to. Her big mission in this book is attached to the character Mireva who is a Nephalim (half angel/half Human) and 17 year old High School student who is trying to get a full scholarship to go to collage as her family cant afford to send her to the kind of collage she wants to attend. Brynna's character was great and defiantly not the typical heroine which was kinda a nice change from the norm.  Concrete Savior, book two will be released in June 2011 and I defiantly plan to continue the series.

I gave it 4/5 stars
