Perhaps the most powerful aspect of this series is how in each of us there’s a little devil and a little angel. For the Ryan family it’s literal, for us it’s ‘probably’ figurative. In this installment Tom is barely coping with his grief, barely functioning, and doing a magnificent job of it all things considered. I just had a death in my household and I’m not holding it together at all, I have a depression so bad I don’t want to work or feel or think or interact or anything. I live on the precipice of constant tears, so reading this novel now was therapy.
In a nutshell the novel is about moving forward after death, and it helps if you have people who love you and care about you, and getting out and helping others is the way Tom does it, that is until his very worst fear is realized. The fallen angel kicked out of heaven is not a cool character in this series, he’s downright awful, and there is no boundary he won’t cross, nothing is off limits. In usual Taylor fashion there is a twist at the end, but really I see so many of the reviews already available for this novel give you a rundown of what the story is about, so I’m not going to reiterate any of it.
Angel fire is an emotive read, it’s ruled by highly strung emotions and reactions, intense and acute. The ghost hunting and the subsequent reactions and interpersonal dynamics was all so well written and described that you never question this is fiction, it simply feels too real. Being inherently good in character also doesn’t excuse us from succumbing to our inner devil when we’re seized by severe grief, trauma, or rage. Tom is in conflict, he’s not thinking straight because he’s running on pure instinct. And he’s scrummy because of it. Thank you Tom, you just made me a cougar you naughty devil/angel/man :)
I love this book, I cannot WAIT for the next one! Definitely a five star thriller romance ride.
