The challenge to write a strong sequel that both advances plot and character development and manages to leave some plot for the rest of the series, while not stagnating in the process, is a difficult one--but Coffey meets it head-on, and provides consistent, well-rounded characters meeting some perilous conflicts while in the process of furthering the objective introduced in Angel in Training.
The thing I love most about this series is that it follows the characters through some real-life struggles, most notably the "Imposter Syndrome" everyone can relate to, that nagging self-doubt that wonders if the effort is worth it, if you've made the right choice--whether you ought exist at all. Angel is questioning why she should be Joshua's guardian angel; Josh is questioning why he needs a guardian angel at all, and what part he could possibly play in the Grand Scheme; plenty of others are questioning Michael's leadership, as it seems their enemies know how to exist outside of his hitherto-unchalenged omniscience. There were reveals that had me slapping myself for not realizing the significance staring me in the face the whole time, and that's the brilliance of Coffey's work. The plot stands strong, the stakes are higher than ever, the angels are closer than ever before to putting the Fallen to rest once and for all, though the enemy seems leagues ahead of them every step of the way--and I am absolutely committed to seeing this series through to the end!
With Michael in denial, her only allies Veronica and the cherubim believing her theory about Lucifer Angel begins investigating her suspicion especially after five "Potentials" are found murdered. Fighting her feelings Joshua,the detective trainee looking into the killings she begins to find evidence that substantiates her suspicions, only to walk into a trap that has them fighting for their lives, and uncovering clues to two ruthless and dangerous Princes of Darkness living in New Orleans.
Although slow at first as Angel tries to overcome her guilt and regret, continues her training with Raphael, and struggles to gain Michael's support to alleviate her doubt about Lucifer's death, the momentum and action heats up when she discovers a barkeep, Terrance (Ty) Hamilton who agrees to get her an ID so she check out rumors about a nearby bar. The plot progresses smoothly and quickly as trouble surrounds Angel and Joshua not only when he's faced with trouble at work and five deaths but with mounting evidence that a mole is buried in the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD). In a story filled with fascinating background details about the angels and demons and surprising twists like a confrontation with a possessed police officer, intensity and suspense quickly escalates.
Guilt-ridden, fearing her presence could endanger his life, Angel tries to draw away from Joshua, asking Michael to replace her as his guardian angel. Yet with every encounter and every dream walk the romance gets more intense until she's forced to face her feelings for him. In contrast Michael senses a wrongness in his affection for Angel but at Cupid's instigation he takes her on a quick trip to Paris. Although not drawn to him romantically Angel yearns to be able to trust Michael who seems to have a listening deficit when it comes to her.
Angel Connors in this story matures as well as developing physically after earning her wings. Regretting her part in Lilah's death she struggles to overcome her pain, uncertainty and anxiety, finally finding an anchor in Joshua. Determined to do what's right and keeping her promise to Veronica and the cherubim she stubbornly searches for the truth about Lucifer's death only to naively walk into danger. Joshua Walsh is pig-headed when it comes to Angel, refusing to admit defeat when it comes to his growing feelings for her. Flirtatious and teasing but also sincere, caring and honest it is these traits that win Angel's heart. The archangel Michael continues to be obstinate, authoritative and serious although he tries to win Angel's trust by revisiting a painful memory. It is these characters and others that infuse this absorbing, imaginative and well-developed tale with tension, passion and drama.
I was intrigued by "Angel's Eclipse" and couldn't put it down as the danger to Angel, her angelic family and Joshua continues to mount. Innovatively C.L. Coffey captures a world of angels and demons where good and evil clash and a final war looms that keeps you coming back for more.

C.L. Coffey has a way with words that just draws me in, I want more and more and next thing I know I'm half way through the book and its lunch time and I've achieved nothing apart from reading, wait that doesn't sound like a bad thing
Its a great series so far and I'm eagerly awaiting the next one to come along and render me useless apart from reading for a day.
Would highly recommend
