Review: Saint Petersburg (Fallen #8) by Tiffany Aaron

Being the most feared fallen angel makes for a lonely existence.

 

Lucifer has spent millennia alone, despised by angels and mortals alike. He’s developed a tough outer skin to deal with the fear and rage he seems to inspire in everyone he encounters. Then in 1914, in Saint Petersburg—or Petrograd as it was known then—he meets a woman that steals the heart he thought he’d lost long ago.

 

Vera Turnick meets Lord Luka Kolwochak and finds herself instantly attracted to the mysterious stranger. When world events force them to part, she realises just how much she loved him.

 

Is there a way for love to last centuries? When visiting Saint Petersburg again after a century away, Lucifer finds a familiar face standing in the middle of the ballroom in the Winter Palace. How is it possible? Is Vera’s return a sign that God has finally forgiven Lucifer? Does he have enough faith to hope?

I have made my way through pretty much most of the books in the Fallen series so it’s pretty safe to say I’m well verse in this series. Saint Petersburg has a different flavor than the previous titles as in it is spent more in the past reflecting where Luka (Lucifer) meets and falls in love with Vera.

 

As Lucifer and Mika’il reminisce, you can’t help but feel the Lucifer is less this evil entity and more a lost man. I definitely felt sorry for him. I had my moments of meh feelings toward Vera, her interactions with Luka at times felt very rushed. I think what I thoroughly enjoyed was the historical aspect of the story on top of a more sympathetic version of why Lucifer is a Fallen. Actually, there is a curiously interesting twist towards the very end of the story that adds a completely new spin to Lucifer’s story. I can see religious folks having kittens over this AHA moment. I personally enjoyed it.

 

It’s pretty safe to say that Saint Petersburg is the finally entry in the Fallen series. All Fallen and missing angels have been accounted for and everybody has gotten a sweet individual HEA with one more giant shared HEA to finish off the series. I found the whole series to be a pleasant read and while I think each title can be read as stand-alones, this final book should not be.
