    Loved it! I have become hooked on this arthurs books. this one is about Evie a half Angel and her fight against good and evil everything she does will have a impact on those around her and all she can do is try her best and wing it plenty of action and suspense in this book as well as emotion so looking forward to the next book to see where her choices take everyone.

    Retribution is the first book to the Chronicles of the Irin series. The lead character in the book is Evangeline (Evie), she is a headstrong, fierce, Kick butt Nephilim. Evie is a hunter of evil for the Brotherhood of Irin. She had always loved working for the Brotherhood under Patrick, her mentor/father figure, until he mysteriously became ill and had to step down from his role. It is so strange to Evie, to watch him become sicker each day with no cure in site, because Nephilim are supposed to be immortal. Taking Patrick’s role as master is Marcellus, a very shady character, since he became the new master there have been a lot of changes. He sends them out nightly to kill demons without question and retrieve all metal on their person. Strange thing to do seeing how the Brotherhood should have no use for anything demon tainted. Evie being Evie can’t let her curiosity of it go, she needs to know what is going on, and she has a gut feeling that Marcellus has something not so good up his sleeve. In this book you follow Evie’s journey as she tries to uncover why and what Marcellus is really doing with the metal they’re collecting.I very much enjoyed this book. It started off with action and was fast paced throughout. Filled with twists, turns, mystery and deceit. It holds your attention and you find yourself at the end of the book too quickly, wondering if that was it and when the next one comes out! Not a cliffhanger but you are definitely left wondering… Nice and easy read I give Retribution 5 stars

    I was provided a gift copy of Retribution to review and I loved it. T.G. is one of my favorite authors. I love her books and simply devour them when I get them. Usually in one sitting.Without giving away any secrets this book intertwines, Angels, Nephilims, Demons and Greek Gods with a twist of mystery that leaves me wanting to know more. Evie is a strong character with a lot of traits I can relate to. She has me captivated. Just when you think you might have a good idea where the story is going you get a good twist thrown your way. You don't know what is good or evil, who to trust, what is going to happen next! I reached the end of the book and immediately looked to see when book two is coming out. I have to know what happens next.

    Angels/Demons plus Greek gods??! COUNT ME IN! And a badass female main character, too? Yes pleease! Retribution surprised me! I never liked Angel stories because I feel like there’s already A LOT of it out there and I’m just fed up. But as I said, this one is a big surprised. I finished it in one sitting and was disappointed when it ended. Where is the book two coming out????? I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one waiting! The pacing is right, the characters are relatable and not predictable and there’s no dull chapters. Retribution is a great series starter and I will surely check the other works of the Author!

    A visual symphony. I love this one, it is the best of Tee's by far! I loved the fact that Evangaline is a kick ass character, she doesn't sit on her laurels. When she thinks that something is up, she investigates further and finds a plot for Marcellus, the master of the Nephilim to take over and become the master of Hades. Instead, Evangaline takes the Seals and enters Hades with the intention of giving them back to Hades, but somehow, it all goes wrong.Marcellus is a scumbag - and so wonderfully written that I just couldn't find anything to like about him. He is slimy and creepy. But is there someone else driving the whole situation?Can't wait for the next installment.

    I have been provided with a copy of Retribution by the author for an impartial review. This is the first book in The Chronicles of the Irin series and it was a great way to introduce this world. It was a really easy read that just dragged me into its depths and it wouldn’t let me go until I turned the last page. I really enjoyed getting to meet Evie and to come into her world and see how she would handle the situation with Marcellus. I especially liked the ending of the book and I can’t wait to read the next one in the series.

    I love T.G. Ayer and I love urban fantasy, so I was pretty sure I would love this one. What I wasn't really expecting was HOW MUCH I LOVE IT! You get thrown into the action from the very beginning, and there is no slowing down. I loved the original way angels and demons were portrayed. I love the suspense and edge of my seat action. I loved the characters and Evie is now on my list of faves. The world building was fantastic, as always, and the story was so gripping I couldn't put it down. I am so excited to see where this series goes!

    This book starts off strong during an intense battle between the protagonist (Evie) and a demon. It continues with mystery and suspense that pulls at you hoping and wondering how all this will be resolved. However, the story kinda falls flat after awhile. Evie's conversations seem immature at times and more contemporary rather than what I expected would be more ancient authoritative. Although I did enjoy reading this story and would recommend it more for the young in age and young at heart. I received this book from the author for an honest review.

    T.G. Ayer comes up with the most fascinating stories. The creativity in that mind is astounding! Retribution is another great installment of a (hope to be) great series to add to the author's collection. Retribution is all about Angels and Demons and figuring out who is really good guys and who is really that bad guys?! The world, even the afterworld isn't always black and white. **I read a complimentary readers copy of Retribution that was gifted to me by the author.***

    Retribution (Chronicals of Irin book 1 by T.G. Ayer)Evangeline is a strong character who is perhaps too smart for her own good. She has crack instincts that she knows better than to ignore ... more than 1,000 years of life has taught her that.She has become suspicious of recent events and has begun to distrust ... which is unusual for this Nephilim. She has become adversarial with current leadership & at times goes out of her way to irritate them. Not always a trait of hers as she fully trusted previous leadership.This book was well written with amazing detail to ancient Roman history & Greek/Roman mythology. I will say I caught some foreshadowing pretty early in the story but was not upset when the twists started. I was routing for the twists & turns! Now on to the next book![I received this book free as an ARC with hopes I would write an honest review.]

    This first book in a new series by T G Ayer is a fast paced, page turning read with great characters and story line.

  • Rebecca

    T G Ayer seems to be good at recreating the strong willed and determined independent young woman that seems to be regular heroines nowadays. Except of coure Ayer's heroines all have their own deep dark and often magical secrets and often live in a world like our own but where myths and legends and ancient cultures still exist beyond mere mortals vision.In this book, the first of another new trilogy, the heroine is connected to a Brotherhood that is meant to protect and serve humanity. The focus of all conflict comes from the recent and sudden change of the leader. This is where an element of mystery and detective story blends in with the supernatural characters. The trio friendship of the heroine Evangeline is well characterised a they all handle the change differently and yet all agree that something isn't quite right. It is that unity and the determination of Evangeline to find the dirty secret behind the new power that leads to a kind of alliance with demons which sadly aren't as scary as I had hoped but I felt after reading the novel that they are more of a tainted mirror representation of Evangeline and her kind. More characters of a moral compass than plot devices taking it forwards. I must be honest and say that although the plot had some interesting twists I did feel that a lot of the crucial points, decisions, objects etc were a bit too convenient or told more via the narrator or openly and too easily revealed by characters. At some points things happened that were either easily predictable or just seemed a bit random.For example, there is a point near the start where the narrator and reader observe characters instead of the heroine. In the latter half of the book I felt this narrative device could be utilised more as there was one line in the book where it suddenly became a first person narrator and not a third person narrator. In the latter half I was more curious about what was happening to the other characters introduced in the first half than the feeble challenges faced by our heroine. The ending although fitting wasn't as dramatic or as powerful as it could have been. Even the very last line listing all the unfinished business shows that perhaps due to the complex nature of the plot the characters and story structure had to be a bit forced or set out and simplified.On the whole there is an entertaining story to be enjoyed but I feel it does need to have more depth to it in the sequel in order to truly excite readers for the characters and plot or it may remain a tale that is too easily forgotten.

    Summary: Evie belongs to the Brotherhood Irin and together with all the other Nephilim of the world she is protector to humanity, protector against evil. But evil has found its way into the Brotherhood. Someone has murdered her guardian and Marcellus, the New Master makes demands of the warriors that go against all they stand for. Demands Evie just can’t carry out.Evie uncovers Marcellus’ plan to collect a set of special seals, but when a high-level demon reveals the truth behind the Seals of Hades, Evie know there is no way she can allow the Master of the Irin to get his hands on them. But will keeping the Seals from Marcellus cause her to sacrifice more that she should? Will vengeance for her guardian’s death be enough or will she need more to satisfy her Immortal soul?Review:The author wrote with such imagery that I found myself drawn into the world of demons, Nephilim and the like. I found I saw the characters as the author saw them. Following Evie's journey throughout the book was heart wrenching at best especially when she discovered that her beloved guardian Patrick had "died" but she knew he was murdered and who was behind it (No Spoilers).Evie began to distrust the New Master Marcellus when he started sending out the her, Ash, Ling and the other Nephilims out to kill demons only to find out they were actually seal bearers. They were each chosen to protect a Seal Of Hades.Did Marcellus want to become the Master of the Underworld? Is this why he's collecting all the metal from their kills? You'll find your answers when you read Retribution.I love the strong heroine that the author portrayed with Evie.Reading about these different types of beings was fascinating and kept me drawn to the story. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Typical of most of Ayer's books, Retribution begins right in the midst of the action. We find Evangeline (aka, Evie) stalking her prey -- a demon named Baltazar. Evie is Nephilim, a fierce hunter who works for an organization that seeks to rid the world of evil. Of course, as these things go, not all is as it seems. Evie is caught between doing what she has been trained to do and doing what is right. She battles loss, deception, and more than a few demons. Taking readers from Boston to New Orleans and across the River Styx, Retribution is a fast-paced story that reads like an episode of Supernatural. There are mysteries to solve, demons to kill, and many laughs. Not one to leave her readers tense for too long, Ayer does a great job of providing comic relief. And for you romance fans, there are a few stolen kisses as well. The world building in Retribution is some of Ayer's best. She takes readers through contemporary espionage and secret organizations and then drags us to hell and back all within the span of a few hundred pages. And yet, at no time did she lose me. None of that would be possible if it weren't for the equally strong character development. Evie stands out as a strong young (well, that's debatable) woman without being hypersexualized or naive. On top of that, she has some pretty amazing wings and knows how to handle a knife. Retribution is a quick read, a fun weekend escape sure to satisfy any fan of urban fantasy. Though it is the first in a planned series, Ayer does not leave readers hanging on the edge -- this novel stands nicely on its own. **Review originally posted on my blog:

    Retribution by T.G. Ayer is the first book in The Chronicles of the Irin series and I have to say it’s a great book. I’ve been blessed to have read all of Ayer’s books and they are very good, so I was defintely curious to see if she could deliver me another amazing book and I have to say she didn’t dissapointed me.The story begins when Evangelina, a Nephilim hunter is stalking her target, a demon named Baltazar and the moment she assasinated him she knows something is off. Since her mentor step down as the head of the organization that she works for, the new master Marcellus is obsessed in everything metal they find on their targets. It appears he is after some seals that involve the world of Hades.Evangelina knows she has to do everything in her power to stop that from happening and decided to take the trip to the Underworld herself and talk to Hades himself about this.I love Evangelina, she is a strong fierce woman who is caught between her duty to the organisation she works for and what she thinks is right. When her mentor is gone to her, she knows there is one way to figure out what Marcellus wants and nothing is going to stop for doing it.This book ended way too soon for me, I wanted to continue so I could see what will happen next. How will Evangelina grow into her new role and what place will Hades have in it? The only thing I can do is to wait and hope Ayer will help me out of my mysery and release the next book in the series soon.I received this novel for an honest review, courtesy of T.G. Ayer.

    Retribution was a fast read, and one I really enjoyed. One of the aspects I really liked about the book was the mix of angels, demons, and the incorporation of Greek mythology, which is a side interest of mine. I also liked the use of different types of angels from the various world religions. It's the first book in the Chronicles of the Irin series, and I'm interested in reading the second book to find out how the story continues.The main character is Evangeline, or Evie, as she prefers to be called. She's a Nephilim in the Brotherhood of Irin who are guardians of humanity. There are changes in the leadership at the organization she is a part of, and she soon finds herself questioning what they're being told and not told and the shift in their focus. She soon finds herself in circumstances she wasn't expecting, and realizes there is more going on that what appears to be true on the surface, and seeks her own answers. She was a character I really liked, and I thought this first book was a very good introduction to her and her thought processes. Not to mention she's a great warrior as well.While I did enjoy the book, after I finished reading, I thought about it a bit, and felt that the ending, namely the last chapter, felt a little rushed. Despite that, I recommend this book to those who enjoy stories with angels and demons and Greek mythology along with urban fantasy. My rating is 4/5 platypires.

    Oh how I enjoyed this book. There is something quite satisfying about reading fantasy books. We tell ourselves it���s not true but hell it could be. There could really be these creatures out there laughing at us for not believing they really exist and sometimes I just want to believe that we are not the only ones.Evie is a Nephilim. Her job is to protect the humans from the demons. But Since her mentor got sick things have changed. There is a new master and he���s changing all the rules. He���s going against everything she stands for. Evie is very determined. Once she has something in her head she doesn���t let it go easily. She is also very moral.I really liked her friends Ash and Ling. They clearly cared about Evie and their old master Patrick. Marcellus, the new master is evil. He has one goal on his mind and all he cares about is achiving that know matter who he hurts along the way. He is selfishPatrick is a good man. I was sad to see him so unwell. It clearly affected Evie deeply it was very difficult to read.Barry was a very interesting character. Really hope we see more of him in the future.Julian was hot. Really hot.I found this book a bit of a slow burner at first. I found the first few chapters were quite slow and then before I knew it I had finished. I became a little hooked. I can���t wait for book 2 and plan to check our some of the authors other books.

    I was gifted a copy of the book for an honest review. The cover is stunning and sets it apart!I thoroughly enjoyed the book and couldn't put it down, until I was finished. The plot is very interesting and complex. The characters are bold and each has their own contribution to make the story flow and progress. Evangeline (Evie) is a very head strong Nephilim who does not take the change of leadership well. She is supremely suspicious of Marcellus, the new Irin Master. Patrick, the former Master, is afflicted with an unusual, incurable illness that has him room bound and weak. Evie discovers her mentor and father figure has been murdered by the new leader of the Irin.Evangeline and some of her friends start to suspect something sinister is taking place as a result of the command to bring back items that Demons had on their person. Metal discs are being collected and Evie discovers they are the Seals of Hades.Evangeline is soon embroiled in an evil plot to take over Hell by her Irin Master. By working with unlikely demon allies, Evie makes a dangerous trek to the underworld to return the metal seals to Hades. What she gets in return is undeniably unexpected. I can't wait for the next book in the series to see how Evangeline escapes her current fate and to see whether or not she falls for the current Head of Hell.

    Right off the bat it this was full of action and very fast paced. I normally don't read too many books that deal with Angels and religious stuff but this was very intriguing and didn't get too much into religious beliefs.Evie is a great character. She could be very cocky at times but I really liked her. She has a very strong presence and knows what she wants. When new leadership takes over the Brotherhood Irin, Evie starts questioning the mission. As she put it she's starting to feel like a glorified garbage collector. Taking out all these demons. Where as before they were more of protectors. Once Evie finds out the true reasons behind Marcellus take over she has to stop him.There's a lot of fun characters and creatures that Evie meets on her journey. I adore Julian who shows up more so towards the end. He seems very intriguing and sexy. I can't wait to read more in this series. It was just starting to get really good when it ended.

    I was provided this book as a gift and am happy to leave an honest review of my take after reading it. I will NOT however provide spoilers.Author T.G.Ayer brings to us readers a tale of Angels, Nephilims, Demons, and the Underworld. The beginning starts out full of action and from there on it just keeps getting better all the way to the very last page. It's full of action and honor, duty, love, deceit, and betrayal. You will not believe how it ends. You will want to read more even though you know that flipping the last page back and forth won't bring you any new pages.Evie is the type of heroine that loves deeply and will do whatever necessary to make amends for the wrong done to her and those she holds dear to her. The whole storyline will draw you in and keep you on your toes trying to figure out what happens next...all I can say is that what happens in the end will surprise you!I am personally looking forward to the next installment.

    Evie is one bad ass Nephilim.  As a member of the Brotherhood Irin she is trained to hunt and kill demons.  But her newest leader Marcellus, forces her to question his reasoning.  The assignments are more assassinations than humanity quests.  With help from her friends she seeks the truth and the true reasons why Marcellus wants the Seals of Hades.  She goes on a quest of her own to find the seals before Marcellus does.  Only thing when she finds them she gets more than she bargained for.  Trapped in the Underworld with Hades himself.  Only thing is Hades is H.O.T. and not as evil as everyone has portrayed him. She is forced to question what is right and wrong.  She must stay alive and with one pissed off Persephone, demons and Marcellus all out for her head it proves harder than she ever imagined.WOW totally blown away with this book!  Action packed.  YOU. MUST. READ. THIS. SERIES.

    What can I say – I am a die hard T.G. Ayer fan and she definitely didn’t disappoint with her latest offering. In fact she took on one of my all time favourite paranormals – Angels - and flipped it around some, played with the many myths and stories, gave it her own spin and produced a fresh NA version that lovers of all things Angel, Demon, good and evil should fall in love with.Filled with twisted plots thought up by an evil mastermind, double crossing demons, age old Nephilim, Angels, Gods and so much more, RETRIBUTION really is an up all night read; you will not want to put it down.I really can’t wait to read what comes next for Evie, her friends, and her possible love interest - it’s getting a little steamy in Hell!Another fabulous start to what I can only imagine is going to be an amazing paranormal series. 5 stars

    I was lucky enough to be gifted this book by the author, and it is more of a reason why I love her. The book never slows, it keeps you to the edge of your seat till the last page. T.G. Ayer keeps you guessing and just when you think you have figured out what she's thinking, she throws another obstacle in your path. Evie is an amazing angel to experience, to see her go through everything and then decide she must save hades, is amazing. I love the mix of angels and mythology, it takes you back to where you learned about gods and goddess's and yet still you learn more. I cant wait for the next book in this series, the author is so amazing I dont think I will ever get enough of her writing. I love how the action and suspense flowed through the whole book, it kept you intriqued, and loving each scene. Thank you for the experience of Evie.

    Fantastic! Evie is part angel part human and all determination! We see her grow in the beginning from just completing her mission, to someone who isn't afraid to take chances to get things done to save everyone!.She is confused when she is asked to bring in everything with metal on her missions, and she finds the metal is actually the seal to something pretty BIG. She has to make allies with some unlikely demons in order to make sure things stay the way they are supposed to be, and she uncovers a plot that goes deeper than she is ready to deal with.Evie is such a strong heroine that you are going to be turning the pages as fast as you can to read this book!I can't wait until the next one comes out!!!Another success for T.G. Ayer, go get your copy today!!

    I received a copy from the author via insta-freebie in return for a review.Short paranormal that reads more like the first part of a story that a complete story in an ongoing series. Eve was a good heroine, strong and determined to do the right thing. the mythology seemed a little jumbled to me and I thought that and the background needed some better explanation but it was still an enjoyable read. There is not really any romance (but the setup is there for future books) just and inexplicable and instantaneous attraction and one kiss that is hard to buy because the guy Julian does not turn up until at least 2/3 of the way in and Eve & Julian don't interact much beyond a single conversation before the kiss occurs before they go back to avoiding each other.

    Retribution was the wonderful introduction to a world where Angels are assassins trained to fight against evil forces! Throw in some Greek mythology, action, a bit of romance, and a badass female main character and you've got a good paranormal story.I'm a big fan of paranormal stories and I really enjoyed the plot and world building in this one. Good angel stories are hard to come by in my book and this one does not disappoint! The story is made up of a lot of great characters- good and bad alike, but the show-stealer is definitely Evie. She's tough as nails and you just can't help but wish she was your best friend. I'm anxious to see what happens between her and Julian in the next book.I really enjoyed this story and look forward to finding out what happens next!

    A very strong start to a new series of books from T.G. Ayer. Was captured by the book within the first chapter or two and yearning for the next installment wishing that it didn't have to end so soon.A story that incorporates angels and demons with a helping of Greek mythology thrown in too. What a great mix! I fell in love with Eve the main character wanting each step of her story fall into place perfectly, and as one would expect in a book this doesn't necessarily happen and we watch how strong she is fighting for what she believes in.
