Peek Inside Unchained

Between the pissed off creatures that want demon-hunter Lily Marks dead and the fallen angel who just...wants her, Lily is about ready to trade forever for a comfy job in a cubicle farm. Her forbidden relationship with Julian provides the perfect fuel for suspicion when a traitor is discovered to be working within the Sanctuary. Lily's only hope is to discover the real traitor—and she'll need Julian's help. That is, if Julian is really there to help her...and not destroy her. Yeah, being a Nephilim isn't everything it's cracked up to be.

Between the pissed off creatures that want demon-hunter Lily Marks dead, and Julian, the fallen angel who just wants her, she's ready for a quiet 20 minutes with her favorite hamburger. If only her life could be that simple.

That she and Julian are even civil to one another, let alone sharing sexy times, is enough to have her fired from the Sanctuary where she works. Oh, and there's that tiny fact that she's suspected of being a traitor. Lily's life quickly moves from merely complicated to I-hope-I-can-survive-the-night.

She must discover the real traitor before she loses everything — and she'll need Julian's help. That is, if he's really there to do good. Yeah, being a Nephilim isn't everything it's cracked up to be, and staying alive has become her number one priority.


"This is one of those books that I need more stars. Five just doesn't seem enough. I loved Unchained that much. There aren't enough adjectives to describe this book but some that come to mind are Fabulous, Sweet, Sexy, Heartbreaking, Heart Stopping.......and the list could go on and on." --Carole, Goodreads

"This book has been a long time favorite of mine. It's one of the books that transitioned me out of the YA genre and into the world of adult romance...and for that, it holds a dear place in my heart. Unchained is pure escapism, it's fast, full of drama, sexy and funny!" --Kaila, Goodreads

"From the moment I started reading Unchained I knew I would love it." --Palema, Goodreads

Unchained Review on K-Books

First of all let me just say how insanely excited I am that I have finally read this book. I heard about this book back in 2011 when I first discovered the genius that is Jennifer L Armentrout. I had just devoured a review copy of Obsidian, the first book in her YA Lux Ser ...more

5 STARS!!!!

From the moment I started reading "Unchained" I knew I would love it.

J. Lynn/ Jennifer Armentrout is an amazing author. The stories and the worlds she creates in her books are so perfect that you can never forget them. This book is no exception. The plot was VERY interesting. The book wa ...more

What's it about: Lily Marks is a demon hunter, which means she's ticked off a ton of creatures. Add to that that she just can't shake her fallen angel, and she's in a whole twisted world. She and Julian aren't supposed to be civil to one another, yet alone want each other. When a spy is discovered i ...more

Unchained was nothing like I expected but I'm looking forward to learning more about the Nephilim world.

Epic, Sizzling, Intense, Mysterious, Perfection

Mind. Blown.

Just when I thought J. Lynn couldn’t possibly get any better…she goes and gives us Unchained.

I was surprised to hear that she wrote this book back in 2008. This book is very different from the rest…for the better!

I could shout from the ro ...more

This was a decent angel book.....You have Lily who is demon-hunter bad ass and has this unmistakeable attraction to Julian who is a Fallen angel.

She's not supposed to be near him but they always wind up together and he has saved and healed Lily twice from the wrath(touch) of evil Baal.

After reading Jennifer Armentrout flex her YA skills with the Lux novels, I was ever so curious to check out her adult skills with Unchained. I will be honest and say that any series set in Washington, DC like this one is will automatically make me a little biased. But I ...more

Lily is a nephilim, born of a fallen angel father and a human mother. Her kind is wanted by both sides in the continuing war between the Fallen and Heaven. As others of her kind, her name appeared in the book of the nephilim at birth. Shortly after, their mothers usually succumb to depression and ev ...more

I spent my Sunday afternoon and evening reading it, and I hated when I had to take a break to eat or call my sister, ha ha!
It was another gem of a read. I LOVED it!

Fallin' for the Fallen

Ahhh, angels. There's just something about them. Is it the wings? Their unearthly beauty? I don't know, but whatever that mysterious "it" quality is that they possess, it works.

Lily is a Nephilim, and it's her job to take down minions and the Fallen who control them. It's ...more

Someone is stalking Lily Marks every night. Not just anyone, but Julian, a Fallen Angel. Even though it’s Lily’s responsibility to eliminate every Fallen Angel, it seems she can’t get rid of Julian.

Ooh! I ❤ this author!!

Love Nephilim books and this one was no exception, plus this one had some sizzling sex thrown in which makes for a very happy Rach!

By Jessica (a GREAT read) November 04, 2013

J. Lynn's Unchained was a freaking awesome read! I wasn't sure what to expect being that it's called New Adult and lately the New Adult books I've seen are all contemporary, but I was definitely pleased that this read doesn't follow the contemporary route. Obviously, since Lily herself is Nephilim.

Just when you think what else can JLA come up with because she writes so many books and pops them out like Hamsters having babies. Well she did and it's all about the Nephilim in this go around.

What are Nephilim you might ask if you don't know. Well in this case they are the off springs of Fallen A ...more

It's no secret that I devour anything JLA, so I was happy to finally get this book in my greedy little hands. It felt like forever for Unchained to finally come out, and I'm happy to say it was so worth the wait.

By Sinead July 28, 2019

This was the first book Jen ever wrote, back in 2008, and was published in 2013. It’s NA, so they are nice smutty scenes between Lily, our main, and Julian, a deliciously beautiful angel who low-key stalks her but Lily isn’t that bothered by. Was it a little cliché? Yes, but that is also because it ...more

This has renewed my love for all things PARANORMAL!
It was so good that I think I'm going to list some of the awesomeness that is within "Unchained":

1. Lily is a total BAD-ASS. I love a good hunter book, and Lily Marks is a good hunter.
2. One word Juilian.
3. A new twist on a Nephilim/ Fallen s

Spicy hot :)
