Book Review: The Deal by S C Cunningham


Wouldn’t it be nice to have hot, funny, feisty, rule-breaking angels protecting and fighting your corner? Keeping an eye on those who slip through law enforcement’s fingers? 

Well here you go…the Fallen. You’re welcome!

At the age of four, Amy Fox was taken…. She survived….

A week later, another little girl was taken…. She didn’t.

Angry, Amy made a deal with the heavens.

Decades later her lifeless body was found beneath a London commuter train and she became an angel. But for how long? Lusting after her partner, competing with hell warlords, avenging personal scores, and dishing out tough karma on evil exes, crime gangs, traffickers, drug dealers, rapists, abusers, trophy hunters, trolls, and serial killers, all without her unitsauthorization, will have her thrown below ground. Running with a world network of fallen angels, Amy has never worked so hard in her entire earthly life. She has to wonder if making a deal was a mistake.

My Review

This was by first audio book blog tour and I was not disappointed by this choice.

The book starts with a plea from 4 year old Amy Fox to God. She was taken and she survived, but the girl that was taken after her didn’t. She promises to be a good girl from that day forward and in exchange when she does die she asks to sit on a cloud, be invisible and catch the bad guys that evade the police. What Amy doesn’t realise is that someone is listening and as soon as she utters her plea a deal is made. 28 years later, what Amy doesn’t realise is that it’s her last day on earth and the she joins the ranks of the Fallen, a network of souls who hand out karma to those on earth. Alongside her partner and mentor Jack, Amy is now an Angel. Jack is definitely a stickler for the rules, however Amy is the opposite and likes bending/stretching the rules. When Amy feels she is being watched and a new recruit to the unit causes complications the story takes a turn that you’re not expecting.

The attraction between Amy and Jack is definitely mutual and their chemistry is off the scale. The characters were well written and it has hard not to like Pyke and Maggie especially. It was interesting to learn more about Amy and Jack’s past before they joined the Fallen, the impact that this had on their lives and how it drives their motivation during their assignments.

This was an original and fascinating story full of likeable characters and at times quite intense. The perfect audio book to escape the real world and disappear into another.

I’m looking forward to the sequel and can’t wait to get hold of the series in paperback. If you like fantasy books I would very much recommend this.
