A loyal soldier of the Garden of Eden, Anahita is faced with a daunting mission: to slay the three imprisoned immortals who ate from the Tree of Eternal Life. But her Temptation is among these immortals, and once she lays eyes on him, her spirit wars with the Compulsion to both kill and protect him.

After close to nine years of imprisonment and torture, Max Wright is scarred both inside and out. His only driving force is to protect himself and his fellow prisoners from further harm. When a beautiful angel appears in his cell, he’s inexplicably drawn to her, and desire burns between them. Yet, he fears that succumbing to his passion will only lead to ruin.

But rebellion is brewing among the angels, and shocking betrayals have dire consequences. Can Max and Ana protect their hearts and their eternal love?






I was first introduced to Micah Persell when I read Of Eternal Life, the first book in the  Operation: Middle of the Garden series. Since then I have read  the other two books in the series. I enjoyed the series and became invested in it as such I was thrilled to receive a complimentary copy of the fourth book.



Of Alliance and Rebellion is a great addition to this exciting and unique series.  Ms. Persell’s take on angels, their interaction with humans and the portrayal of the tree of Eternal Life and the tree of Knowledge of good and evil make for a unique and interesting read.  She has the ability to grab her reader’s attention from the very first page.

This installment tells the story of Max Wright and Anahita.  Max is a soldier who was deceived into eating the fruit from the tree of Etenal Life which made him immortal.  Anahita is the angel who is given the mission to kill Max and his friends. (Death was their punishment for eating from the tree).   There was, however a major obstacle to her mission. Max was her temptation and the instant she laid eyes on him her conflict began. She was torn between her mission and her feelings. Will she be able to fulfill her mission or will she yield to her temptation?

Max is a tortured soul both physically and emotionally. He is not your typical romance hero who has the perfect face and body. His face is badly scarred and he tries his best to hide it from persons he comes in contact with. The author’s descriptive style of writing allows readers to picture the unspeakable horrors that he went through.  The moment he lays eyes on Anahita he knew he was in deep trouble. Will he be able to resist her or will he give into his feelings?

The romance is well written. The lovemaking scenes are spicy, steamy, sizzling and tastefully written.  The writing style is smooth and descriptive which makes for an easy read.
Overall, this was an entertaining read and I can’t wait to see what next the author has in store for this series.
