I think it’s important to mention upfront that this book does not stand on its own very well Obviously this didn’t bother me since I read the first book too but I don’t think a new reader should jump into this series here It ties heavily into the last book and unfamiliar readers will find themselves uite confused The past events previous character relationships and the trauma that Alex still suffers from are treated as a given only lightly explained I enjoyed this since it was enough to brush me up but not enough to bore me with repetitive infodumps but it’s probably not helpful for a new reader So consider yourself warned Usually I do not enjoy a multitude of POV’s because I don’t like taking that much time away from the main character’s narrative—This was actually a complaint of mine in the first book—but I found that the author used it pretty well here I did occasionally become impatient to see the individual story threads combined but that had to do with my desire to see Aramael and Alex reunited than an actual dislike for reading those sections We were introduced to a whole new cast of side characters since Alex was taken out of her native residence Some I liked some grated on me coughLizcough Even though I didn’t like all of the side characters I liked that the author showed the humans’ reaction to discovering the events going on behind the scenes It’s a pretty unbelievable thing so seeing someone refuse to believe made it seem realisticAlthough I did enjoy a good chunk of the book mostly the overall arc and the complicated tangle of layers that kept cropping up I have to be honest and say that I finished this book feeling rather bitter A large draw for me of the first book was the intense connection between Aramael and Alex The romance was a light background feature but it was enough since the author wrote the tension between them so well We ended the book on a cliffhanger of sorts regarding their relationship so I was very eager to finally see them reunited Unfortunately the way things unfolded left me very unhappy I had some uncomfortable moments when Alex would make throwaway comments indicating that she was somehow relieved to find herself untangled from her soulmate but I just thought I was reading things wrong And when a love triangle started to crop up I comforted myself with the knowledge that Alex wasn’t willing to reciprocate the interest How nice that I managed to lie to myself for the entire book huh I will say that I do not appreciate bait and switch romances even in a UF and leave it at that I felt that the end spiraled a bit out of control An event that should have been very traumatic for Alex in my opinion was dealt with in an extremely short amount of time and it felt like it wasn’t given the weight that it needed I know that Alex tends to live in denial but that really didn’t excuse the lack of attention given to it And then to have the whole situation become even weird and complicated and plain icky It just didn’t work for me I think I would have needed time and attention paid to it for it to feel natural I felt a distinct lack of cohesion in a lot of the events and POV’s toward the end It didn’t seem to flow very well and it made reading it feel a little erratic The interesting worldbuilding continues to draw me in and remains a favorite part of the series for me Nothing is resolved with the Lucifer plotline when the book ends but some interesting new developments do pop up Although I like the way the author has set up the world and the demonangel factions I’m finding it harder and harder to care for the “good” guys They’re not doing a lot to win my admiration I’m not sure what to expect from the next book but hopefully we’ll see a final resolution on the LuciferOne thing Favorite uote”For what it’s worth you’re right” Mika’el said “Yo

When homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis sees a photo of Seth Benjamin on a police bulletin she knows that Heaven's plan to halt Armageddon has gone terribly wrong. After reading the first book in this series Sins of the angels i had really high expectations regarding this book Who were partially met This book sounded and like a thriller with angels archangels and company than an urban fantasy book I didn't like the fact that secondary characters took a great piece of the narration I wanted to hear about Alex and Aramael Not about a snarky shrink It was like Alex as a character wasn't strong enough to take the brunt of the story Now regarding Seth there's a part of me that wants to laugh Because he detains the balance of the world as we know it Since he's the son of the Creator of life The One and of Lucifer the Fallen Angel Now Seth has a role to play in the game between heaven and earth but he decides to give it all up His immortality his powers what he is to stay with Alexa mortal Just because in the previous book when her hand touches his arm he knows that she's his Nevermind the fact that she already has a soulmate AramaelIn the last pages of the previous book the bond that connected Aramael to Alex his soulmate was broken Neverthless Aramael powerless and without his wings still has feelings for his lost soulmate A flicker of something a memory that he hopes will be enough to reconnect them againBut then the transition of Seth into the human realm doesn't go as expected And than one ends up loosing his memories All except one The name of Alexandra JarvisKeeping it short i will just say that i felt no love between Alex and Seth She likes him she wants to protect him and she wants to avoid the armageddon And she knows that she is vital for that ones balance But has she truly forgotten AramaelIt was a good story A good thriller But emotionaly i couldn't connect with it The tension between Aramael and Alex in the first book literally fuelled the book for me It's absence in this one was sadly missed

Review Courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales uick Dirty Take care for the war between Heaven and Hell is upon usOpening Sentence “Do we have an agreement” the One askedThe ReviewThe second installment in the Grigori Legacy urban fantasy series is completely crazy Betrayal–in Heaven of all places rape by fallen angels suicides the shortest pregnancies I have ever seen though I think that part would be awesome much better than all those months though the maternal death rate is a rather dismal 100% strangers turning up naked at your doorstep with no memories and no speech true love returning from the grave Crazy don’t you think But we love to love it am I rightSo in this installment of the series we see everyone we met before trying to get back to their lives post Ciam loco fallen angel with a murderous disposition and one hell of a grudge It seems most of the main characters are all having a bit of a problem with that but wouldn’t we all Detective Alex Jarvis has been sentenced to ride behind a desk by the departmental shrink pending I don’t know maybe the end of the world She’s not any crazy than most of us really But all that changes when her boss shows her a photo of a missing person like a found person case in Vancouver and they both recognize the man as the one who saved Alex’s life during a fire one presumed dead But there he is Seth son of the One and Lucifer the one who supposedly holds the fate of everything in his hands The deal being Seth is to be reborn a human live life like a human and he is to choose between good and bad Choose good and Lucifer has to say bye bye choose bad and Lucifer gets to wipe us all out Except when he makes it to earth as an adult mind you Seth doesn’t remember any of that In fact he doesn’t remember anything Alex realizes this tidbit for the bad news that it really is the coming of the Apocalypse and she rushes across the country to try to save him She begins by teaching him about the world and language again only to be interrupted by Aramael her ex soulmate she thought had died Aramael has been given the mission of killing Seth to prevent some sort of human genocide and by that I mean wiping out the entire human race You see Lucifer has been steadily building up an army of half human half angels or Nephilim so that when the angels of Heaven and Hell are in battle the Nephilim will destroy the humans But Alex gets in the way and won’t allow them to just finish Seth off as planned leaving Lucifer time to play some head games Then for awhile the world hangs in the balance as Seth makes his final decision There is some awful things that happen in the meantime but I can’t tell you everything you’ve got to read it for yourself Suffice to say the ending is a surprise somewhat scary and left open for books as the war is just starting and Lucifer is just beginning to delve into his nasty bag of tricksSo aside from all the craziness Alex has now had two heavenly beings give up everything to be with her Two What we all wouldn’t give for just onegreedy girl Though Alex isn’t like that at all And in this particular love triangle I don’t know whom I would choose if I were in her shoes Aramael or Setheither one would suffice in my worldAs I stated in my last review from this series this is an interesting set of mythos some parts close to the actual legends than I have read previously I wouldn’t call it churchy though even with the presence of a priest Religion aside the scenery and imagery are top notch characterization emotions and actions real enough to sink your teeth into I really enjoyed the story and hope there are forthcomingNotable SceneHe eyed his present tormentor now circling just out of arm’s reach Despite what the Fallen One may have heard about Aramael’s vulnerability thousands of years of caution apparently died hard Aramael was after all one of the s
