4 stars

“Power is best held by the ones who don’t want it.”

***WARNING, I’M NOT TAGGING MY SPOILERS SO DO NOT READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO HEAR SPOILERS!!!***
Got it? Okay.

Not going to lie, I am a tiny bit disappointed in this book. Basically I’m giving 4 stars for the plot, pacing and the fact that it wasn’t a total letdown like some young adult series, but I felt there was a lot that was skimmed over or not used to its full potential.

-Obi: Started out as a strong character in Angelfall and was just killed off for what felt like pure convenience on the author’s part in this book.

-The Watchers: where the fuck were these guys the entire series? They were fucking awesome! I’m sad we didn’t get more, the author told us their story and then was like “yeah, I guess they’ll stick around in the background for the rest of the book”.

-The resolution and epilogue:

Like seriously? That’s ALL we get for the romance of Raffe and Penryn? I wanted more! Not 3 kisses and a fucking smile at the end!!!

^^^Okay, had to get these things off of my chest. Here’s what rocked about this book and had me giving it 4 stars:

-Penryn’s mom: Did we ever get her name? That’d be cool to know. Anyways the mom is crazy as usual but instead of it being a burden it becomes such an asset in this book. Her “punishment” for the cult people? It was damn funny what she said. I’m glad that in this book she proves she really does love both of her daughters.

-Paige’s resolution: It was a huge concern what would become of Paige. I like that she evolved from a helpless victim in the first book into a strong warrior girl who protects her own. She may never be normal, but she’ll have a good life surrounded by those who love her or are loyal to her.

-Dee and Dum: These guys, they never fail to bring a smile to my face. I can totally see them ruling the world one day.

-Beliel: his was the most tragic and best part of the story for me. Finding out how he had been wronged and was just an angel who fell in love, it’s easy to see how he followed the path he did. I felt really damn bad for him, he was always alone. I wanted Susan Ee to give him a happy ending.

-The action and pacing: I was enthralled while reading the book and there was not one moment when I wanted to put it down. That’s just Susan Ee. She’s a fantastic author with a slightly twisted mind and I love it!!

Anyways, thanks for reading my rant review. I hope you take a chance on this series!
