Zephyr; The Men, Angels, And Undead Of The Premonition Series

This week is about ALL the men, angels, and undead. That means I have to set my obsession aside and be fair.

I’d also like to say thank you for all the shares on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest!! It’s awesome that so many people spread their love for this series!! Especially with Iniquity coming out soon (I hope).

OK — HERE WE GO!

I gave myself a birthday gift recently – a post with some of my favorite swoon worthy fictional characters. Some of those authors are, Cassandra Clare, Nicole Williams, Sarah Fine, Colleen Hoover (LOVE!!), Veronica Roth, Laury Falter, Abbi Glines, and M. Leighton <–all Amazon links

Here it is in case you missed it

In the comments a few ladies suggested we all read the Premonition series by Amy Bartol. One said she was Team Brennus; the other was 100% Team Reed.

I will start by saying that I am Team Reed.

Are there only two teams?

Meet Zephyr; Power Angel

jared angel 02 07 10

Lethal assassin badass! A machine that annihilates the Fallen.

Zephyr is Reed’s best friend. When we first meet Zephyr (Zee), however, we have no clue how fast and hard we will fall for him.

Book #1 Reed’s house. Evie is at a party and Fallen show up. She tells Russell to call Reed and Evie runs (lightning fast speed) to Reed’s house. Only Reed isn’t home.

Oh no.

…. “A soft rustle of fabric coming from the library down the hall, alerts me to the fact that someone is here…. I stop dead in my tracks…. I scan the perfect figure of the angel in front of me…. Slowly, his dark-brown eyebrows pull dangerously close together over his ice-blue eyes. Then, my fear doubles as a low, primal growl accompanies his severe frown.”

Where is Reed!!??

Also, that’s hot.

“Tires screech on the pavement just beyond Reed’s driveway, and my eyes snap open wider…. In seconds, Reed is in the room and has me cradled in his arms…. “I did not harm her,” The angel speaks to Reed in a defensive tone…. He lets me go…. Whirling on the other angel…. Reed’s shirt tears instantly and falls away from his body, while his gray wings arc out in menace.”

Can you picture it? I CAN!

*fans hand in front of face*

…. “Zephyr, if you ever do anything like that to Evie again, you will pray for death.” …. Zephyr grunts and says in a serious tone, “I will kill anything that attempts to harm her.”

And so it begins.

Let us review all the ways Zee has become, for any Team member, the one character in this amazing series we simply cannot live without.

Book #2

Evie cuts Zee while sparing. Reed is shocked and demands Evie show him. Reed leaps forward, and takes a viscous swipe at her, coming within centimeters.

Mr. Soul mate, Russell, is having none of it!

Russell

Russell– …. “I shoot forward to pounce on Reed, but am held by Zephyr who whispers in my ear, “Do not go there. He will kill you.”

Zee– Always the voice of reason. Always stepping in. Always with his military plans of attack and/or escape.

Fast forward. Evie escapes from Brennus’ cave with Russell’s help…

 only to find out that Zee and Reed have been captured by the Powers and charged with treason.

What is a half-breed Seraph Angel to do?

She goes and gets her angels, that’s what she does!!

TEAM EVIE!!!!

Zee and Reed, hearing Evie give herself up in exchange for them, fight their way into the room. They are bruised, cut, and Zee is … “courageously facing down about twenty or so Powers that are cautiously approaching them from the left and from the right…. Reed just has me in his sights—his expression is lethal.”

Whoa. It gets worse…..

…”Reed pulls me to him, crushing me in a vise-like embrace…. My eyes lock on Zephyr’s blue ones over Reed’s shoulder. He looks wrecked, like he has given everything he has to get to this point…. I reach my hand out to him and he takes it in his, hugging Reed and I together.”

 I feel gutted! I love them! Since we’re going down that road

“Reed places me in Zephyr’s waiting embrace…. Zephyr is trying to calm me down by speaking to me softly in Angel, while petting my hair…. Zee is eyeing all the other angels suspiciously while his arms remain around me.”  <– That part was when I knew if Amy EVER killed off Zee, I would never forgive her.

I came to depend on Zee’s strength as much as the rest of “the family” did through the rest of this series. Zee’s nod of approval, his grunts, his growls of either warning or stamp of approval for the way Reed is handling himself (love that!!) had me both sitting up straighter and relaxing.

Book #4 In the kitchen, battles over for now.

Zee and Reed eye each other. They vow, with an exchange of feathers, to be brothers and always have one another’s backs. I can’t quote it. It’s too emotional for me. And this post is running late as it is due to my inability to STOP reading each book while searching for quotes.

Okay. Let’s talk book #5

My fears:

Xavier roughed up Zee’s girl, Buns trying to get info. BASTARD! Worse! What will Zee do about it? Oh, God… Can he win a challenge? Will Reed step in? Xavier will challenge Reed for Evie. Will Zee step in? Will he be killed? Called back to Heaven? What if something awful happens to Buns? Going back to book #1 — Evie asks Zee what kind of angel is Lucifer? He’s a Seraph. I don’t even want to think about Evie and Lucifer facing off….

My wishes:

BRENNUS FINALLY DIES! , Tau is completely humiliated — Amy, please have his wings severed in the process! , Reed and Evie have a baby (it could happen), Evie can CHANGE Finn back. He’s still on my trust list! Dammit! ,  Russell and Evie detroy the Fallen.

What are your Zee moments?

Fears for book#5

Wishes for book#5

Up Next — BRENNUS

Miss Cristina over at Cristina’s Book Reviews is Team Brennus. She will be doing the Brennus post for us! YAY!

 Earlier today  I issued a challenge of my own — Letting her, and every other Team Brennus member know — Team Reed is ready!

Here it is

We are expecting an ice storm here. If Brennus isn’t up on this blog, that’s why.

72 thoughts on “Zephyr; The Men, Angels, And Undead Of The Premonition Series

  1. I’m dying to see the Zephyr predictions and wish list! Thanks so much, Gabi, Cristina, and Chrissy (and everyone who has been working on these blogs and commenting on them all week)! Best Week Ever!! ❤ #grateful

  2. Oh to swoon over Zee!! *sigh* So loyal and so deadly angel. It is hard not to love him. Scary as hell, but completely lovable.

    I love how shocked he was when Evie is able to out run him. …how his intention was to kill her, but then knew he he would do anything to defend her.

    I laughed at his expression when Evie was able cut him during training.

    And the vow….oh my *tears* what devotion and love. *sniff* *sniff*

  3. One of my wishes …Zee and Buns go thru the ceremony to become each others aspire…officially!

    Reed and Evie have a baby….so with you on that one Gabi! Want Brennus to just go away…far, far away from Evie and the family. Tau and his crew to be exposed as the liars that they are. Russell to remember Anya as his aspire so he can truly be happy. For Evie’s eventual army defeat the Fallen and how ever else stands in their way

    • Brennus will NEVER leave Evie alone. HE MUST DIE!

      BUT… what say you about Finn? He’s on my trust list! OMG- Brennus loses control and almost kills Evie. Finn steps in. Evie uses her “healing powers” on him. I still don’t trust Evie’s BFF (Finn’s lovarr)

      • How about Finn killing his brother because he has been in love with Evie too! Yes, Brennus must die–didn’t want all the Brennus fans crying today–since they go down in defeat tomorrow.

        I think it should be a combined effort of Evie and Reed to take out Tau! Xavier and Cole against Zee and Russell …probably with Anya (Miss Karma) helping out!

  4. Ok, so Zee fights Xavier because he roughed up Buns and seriously, how does anyone rough up Buns?!? Zee and Xavier are fighting and right before Zee is going to rip off Xavier’s wings, Tau steps in and saves him. Zee is the ultimate killer, he can’t die or not win the fight, that defies all angel logic. Duh.

    I like Brennus but, Reed is all things magnificent and glorious. Maybe Reed can rip his wings off and shove the feathers down his throat. Don’t mess with my Reed. If Evie ever, and I mean ever says Reed kisses her and she tastes Brennus again, I will rip her ungrateful head off. Ok, so seriously, in book 5 we need to hear more from Reed’s perspective, get in his head and hear what wonderful things a creature such as himself is thinking.

    Can Xavier fight already? If he fights Reed then Reed will have to kill him because there is no other way. I can’t handle another outcome, my heart will explode and I will DIE! My heart already fell apart when Evie almost BBQ’d him. Xavier hasn’t done a thing but fly around so far. I need him to do something! How about he shows up the next time Brennus is around and try to kill him or something.

    I don’t know how I feel about angel babies. I’m going to have to think about it for a while. Babies are life changing and I don’t know if I want that for Reed.

    Oh did I mention Reed, Reed, and Reed?

    • Lilly — you are my newest and bestest BFF!!!

      I like that idea — Xavier vs. Brennus
      Reed steps in on Xavier and Zee’s fight — ONLY AFTER Tau steps in.
      Together Zee and Reed take the Seraphs down!
      Cole is cowering in a corner, sucking his thumb!

      • Lilly, I agree I hope we see more Reed action and thoughts in book 5 because I guess in a way i forgot how much Evie really means to him, and all I see is how over protected he is of Evie. I guess that bugs me. But I will save some of my angst for Reed for tomorrow. For the smackdown on Team Reed 😉 Can’t wait for Brennus!

    • I would kill to get more of Reed’s POV in book 5. The chapter written from his POV was one of my all time favorites in the series.

  5. Fears…oh too many and afraid if I type them Amy would make them come true!!! Can’t bring myself to type them…don’t know if my heart and sanity could take it!

  6. Somehow (probably b/c of Tau, Cole, and Xavier) Evie ends up in Hell. It would really suck FOR ME if Brennus, with all his new powers, was the one who went in and saved the day.
    My fear on this is that the whole family goes in through a portal to rescue Evie, and someone doesn’t make it out alive. God help me, probably Russell. It would make sense for them to be there together with the combined magic…..The mission is fulfilled, and he is back in Heaven with Anya.

    • Ok…so Brennus goes to save her…he dies in the process??? I could be ok with that…

      Seriously…no one in the family can die…I sure as hell can’t handle that…no way — no how! I have managed to get my heart too invested *I know I’m obsessed!* but they have become too important.

    • Ya it would totally make sense though if Brennus goes down to save her. I can see that. I think it will either be Reed that goes down OR Both Reed and Brennus. That could be interesting.

      • Oh, Caitlin….Reed and Brennus working together??? Interesting proposition!!! Will Brennus initially work WITH the family to help Evie…an unholy alliance?? Oh the possibilities! !!

      • Ultimately, maybe the whole “tis meant to be” is Evie changing him and Finn. Redemption.
        Remember how pissed he was when Evie offered to try? It wasn’t because he loved his life and didn’t want to give it up. no, no, no. He was livid that she would bring something like that up, since it could never be happen.
        But can it?
        Thanks for stopping by again, Caitlin!

      • Redemption could be interesting, and I guess I could only see Evie being able to do it. And ya, I agree Reed would never trust Evie with Brennus, but what if he had no choice??? Amy has thrown us for some crazy loops and that would be a pretty epic one.

        I love how dependable Zee is, a times all I want in the book is more Zee. That I am sure we can all agree on 🙂

      • Just reading these posts and I gotta tell you Caitlin-I am singing this tune. It just sounds right – the 2 who appear to love Evie the most come together to save her-at any cost. Almost perfect-gotta figure out how Russell fits in….. Love it!

  7. What I would like to happe I would in book 5.
    I would love for Reed and Evie to have a baby!!! Love that idea…Brennus must die in order for Evie to be free. But idk Brennus is growing on me….call me sadistic! Zee and Reed and Russell team up to beat some Cole Xavier booty and Tau bows to Evie! Evie discovers herself and her purpose and a HEA for Reed and Evie. I dnt want anyone called back to heaven …well of course with the exception of Xavier and Tau and Cole

    • The fact that Brennus could have BUT didn’t change Evie in book #4 gave me pause as well. It was all his fault to begin with, so he quickly went back to the top of my hate list.

      Great idea, Jessica — of course Russell would be backin’ up his boy, Zee!

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!

      • I think the only reason he didn’t change her is his fear that a souless Evie wouldn’t have feelings for his undead ass.

  8. And how many of the Fallen will ask for redemption and fight alongside of Evie’s army??? … like the one in Torun? That should be interesting…

    • Holy crap! I forgot about that. Who was the one who saw her feeling sorry for him?
      That demon thing that tortured Brownie & Russell is “nothing” compared to what’s in hell — according to Tau.
      I don’t want her going. But, morbidly curious too.

      • Holy crap is right! Iniquity has so many possibilities and so many directions it could go….omg! Amy….please give just one little hint of something that will happen?? My mind is swimming with all the possibilities!! Aaaaauugghhhh!

  9. My first Zee wish is HE CANNOT DIE. I will be absolutely CRUSHED if he dies. I’ve had a nagging bad feeling something terrible will happen to him. If someone has to die, TAKE BRENNUS. 😉

    I love all things Zee. He’s just so lovable. I love his strength, loyalty and his humor. I love how he loves Buns, Evie, Reed, Russell and Brownie. Everything he does makes me swoon but “hand on my heart I will find you”; yeah, that almost killed me. Then the scene where he told Reed he feared he’d have to hunt him and the admission he may not have been able to kill him. Yep, another tug-on-my-heart moment.

    Xavier was able to rough up Buns because she’s a Reaper Angel, she negotiates for souls, she’s not built for battle. Picking on someone weaker than you is not cool. I bet he kicks puppies too >:-(

    • Kristen…love your last line about Xavier…and he probably does!

      I had completely forgotten that line….so swoonable! And he definitely cannot die! Can’t happen!

    • Confession: I was crying while doing the Zee post. These two assassin Powers — look where they are now. All their new “feelings”, etc. You know, sure they all became a family, Russell & Zee are close, but the feelings Zee & Reed show towards each other that day in the kitchen– In book#1 could you have ever imagined a conversation between them like that?? No way. It was all about killing, protecting.

  10. Could Tau end up saving the day in the inevitable fight with the Fallen? Could he sacrifice himself for her…
    Too many scenarios running around in my head….sorry!

  11. Random thought rolling around in my head: I wonder if all this is being set up for the ultimate battle, Evie vs Tau and she gets to be the one to shear off his wings.

  12. Wow a lot of hate for Tau and Xavier! I already stalked/spammed Ms. Amy’s blog with comments not sure what else I can say here… I don’t like Tau either but he’s still Evie’s father and Evie loves him so I don’t really want anything bad to happen to him… Same thing with Xavier – I just want him to find someone else so he’ll leave Reed and Evie alone. There are so many directions the story can take and it’s driving me crazy so I’ll just leave it to Ms. Amy… My wish is that happy endings for everyone and no one dies! (Except Brennus of course… unless he redeems himself somehow). I love all of the guy angels… I do like the idea of redemption for all. Even fallen angels should get a second chance right? This does sound like it’s going to have an epic/Armageddon ending and I’m dying waiting for Iniquity… I can’t believe no publishing house/movie studio has picked up on the story yet! Seriously the best series ever!!! ❤ XOXO

      • Ooh I finally remember what I want to happen in book 5! It’s not really plot related but I really love how the angels have lived forever and they must be so good at everything! Not that we any more things to swoon over the angels, but I really love that Reed is a sculptor and (along with Zee) is killa at the halfpipe. What else can Reed do? We know he can dance and plays lacrosse, but can he paint? sing? What kind of books/music/art is he into? Basically just more of anything Reed please!

    • I agree Sarah. I’m waiting for Amy to work her magic! I just hope that Evie and Reed have a happily ever after. I can not believe she hasn’t been approached for publishing or a movie either. This series is very original, extremely well written and would make a hundred times more money than Twilight or any other paranormal book series or movie has.

  13. I love zee! he’s very dominate male would love a happy ending for him an buns but someone needs to die I think or maybe the illusion that ther dead for a while in the book??? I love a little tearjerker!! Maybe tau and xavier lock buns, zee, brownie and preben up and tell evie there gone so evie has no choice but to except her fathers help to save them?? would love a good relationship to come from tau and evie aswel enjoyed there dinner together in book #4 dont forget hes a high ranking strong sereph not a human maybe evie could soften him up a bit ?

    • Hi Mizzy! thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
      I could see them tricking Evie like that! I don’t know if there a happy ending for Tau and Evie. He used her as a target, had her tied up, took her friends, refused to help find her Apire…. all things considered…. he doesn’t deserve another chance with her. He meets her, they have one “get to you know” dinner and he goes all “Brennus” on her

  14. My wishes for book 5…

    I totally agree with Zee and Buns being bound. I don’t think Zee and Xavier need to fight. I don’t like Xavier but right now I don’t hate him. He loves her and love makes you do stupid things. I think he deserves to get his ass kicked but they don’t need to officially challenge each other. I also think that Zee should be leader of Evie’s army because that is what he is meant to do.

    Brennus needs to DIE!! I like the thought of his character and I think he truly has feelings for her…but he will NOT STOP trying to have her for himself so he NEEDS TO DIE!

    Russell needs to remember Anya. He remembers everything else about his lives, so he should be able to remember that. He already knows he has feeling for her so the memory would help him let Evie go.

    I personally think Evie asked for this “assignment” so that she could be free to find her own love…on her own. I think that’s why she can’t remember anything. She wanted to find love without history behind it. She wanted the opportunity to follow her heart. The only kink in that theory is the fact that she felt butterflies with Reed from day one, so there has to be more to that story.

    In any event Evie and Reed are meant to be and should end up together and happy in the End. Sorry for rambling but I am so in love with this story!!!

    • You’re not rambling!

      I get what you are saying about Xavier. I’ve said from the beginning that (unlike all the other Evie fan club members) Xavier is a REAL threat to a Evie & Reed happy ending.
      I would love to hate a part in book#5 where Evie and Xavier are alone for an extended period of time (part of the mission that goes wrong??) and all her memories come back.
      She can’t help the Brennus feelings she has, DUE TO HIS BLOOD. She can’t help the pull towards Russell, he is her soul mate.
      BUT, Xavier and Evie have a ton of history… let’s see what Evie does about it.

      • Xavier and Evie alone and her memories come back? Yikes but I woud say that could easily be an interesting scene. I mean she has always been a litte conflicted with Brennus and Russell but mostly pretty darn confident in her love with Reed, but Xavier could be one to sway that love a bit more than the other love interests. Can’t wait to see how that unfolds lol

      • Wow, Xavier and Evie alone. That’s totally scary but I kind of like it (heart beating faster). Would Evie cheat on Reed? OMG, I’ll kill her. Xavier better be packin, because if Evie cheats and he’s not all that, uhhhh….I’ll be even more upset.

        No, no, I can’t handle it already. If this happens I will literally go in the book and strangle someone. Most likely Evie.

      • Yes, Evie and Brennus kissed because now the creep is visiting her in her dreams and Brenuss kisses her. So get this, Evie wakes up next to the all perfect Reed (my future) and she has the nerve to say she all she could taste is Brennus.

  15. I agree with your wish list 100% … it would be AWESOME if all of that happened. But Brennus needs to go away … he is NOT a good guy … and reading through that accent is the only thing that pains me about these books … because these books are sooooo good and I can’t wait for the next one

  16. my predictions for book 5 is first Zee needs to annihilate Xavier for what he did to Buns, but i really hope Zee doesn’t die so please Amy Bartol don’t kill him off, and i want Brennus gone, don’t get me wrong i love him i think he is the perfect villain but he has to go, but i don’t want Reed to kill him because Evie loves Brennus and even though she loves Reed so much she might end up resenting him for it. Also Reed and Evie should have a baby i believe it could happen too.

  17. First – Team Reed
    Second – Team Angel Family
    Third – Zee and Buns most bind in this book along with Brownie and Preben it only makes sense.
    Zee is the leader of this family being of sound mind and in love with Evie as a big brother who adores her. Love the scene in the book where Reed and Zee exchange feathers – cried not gonna lie! Biggest fear is that Zee or Reed will battle one of the seraph angels and during the battle will die but really only be called back to heaven for a chat with the big Guy. They would come back when it is least expected but most crucial. The conflict this would create would monstrous!
