This time around, we meet the couples twins Lucia and Zachary who are now training to become Angel Knights under "Uncle" Devin who was also in the Crossroads series with Claudia and Michael. While Devin is Both Lucia and Zachary are curious sorts because of who their father is. They have inherited his Archangel bloodline, as well as becoming Demon Hunters called Venators.
The story is told via Lucia's narrative. It is a quick paced story that leads into the first installment called The Chosen Knights. The bottom line is this. There is a disturbance that has opened between worlds and demons are flooding in looking to begin another war. It is up to the Venators to try to figure out what is happening, and stop it before it's too late. There is one state in particular, Hawaii, where it seems this disturbance needs to be investigated more closely. And, this my friends, is where we lead into The Chosen Angels.
My favorite, however, was Eli—a demon with heart. He knew what fate had in store for him, but he risked it anyway. In the end, it wasn’t himself that he saved. If you have to fall in love with a guy from the wrong side of eternity, it should definitely be one like Eli.
I loved these books. I just hate that I’ve got to wait until October to finish reading the story!
The Angel Knights by Mary Ting is a prequel novella to The Angel Knights series and a spin-off to the author’s popular Crossroads series. While I personally have not read Crossroads, it did not diminish my enjoyment of this new series! The Angel Knights was exactly what I needed during my reading slump last month. It’s a light read, yet sets the series up well. Lucia and her twin brother Zachary are out on their first demon hunting assignment. It’s the first time they’ve encountered demons with their team and they are out with their dad Michael and adoptive uncle Davin. They’ve trained their entire lives to be Venators and the time has come to use their knowledge as the demons seem to be rising again.
The story is mostly told from Lucia’s perspective. I like her. She struggles to suppress her half human side. She allows for her emotions to get the better of her, more than once, putting herself and her team at risk. Yet she’s easily relatable unlike the other Venators who seem emotionless in comparison. I like her relationship with her twin. Though he’s only minutes older, he’s protective and everything I imagine a big brother to be. They work well as a team and they’ve inherited their father’s gift of speaking into each others’ minds. A little freaky, but how awesome a power that would be!!
The point of this novella (which clocks in at just under 90 pages) is to set up the series. While it isn’t necessary to read it prior to reading the rest of the series, I feel it is a bonus and would help to explain Lucia better. Also for fans of Crossroads it bridges the gap from the last book to now, showing Claudia and Michael as adults and parents. The demons are rising again, yet who is leading them? Why are they coming back now? These are the questions asked in the novella along with what are they going to do about it. Lucia and Zachary are chosen to go with Davin to earth and investigate what is happening.
Overall I really enjoyed this novella. It’s a fast read, I read it in a couple of hours one night. It sets up the series well and provides background for Michael and Claudia’s children. If you enjoy urban fantasy, looking for a new series, and of course like a little romance, I highly recommend picking up The Angel Knights!
The novella is told from a mainly Lucia's point of view. It moves at a nice pace and is just enough of a teaser to interest you in the series. One thing that I really loved was the family relationship. There is a lot of love and support for one another. They sacrifice letting each other grow instead of holding back. This is a war between good and evil, there is some violence.
