We get to see some Soren, Kingsley, Griffith, Nora and Michael. Everyone comes together to help each other. I can't say much more without giving away the plot, but the family of misfits are there for each other through thick and thin.
Yes, there is explicit sexual content. You learn about the lifestyle. It isn't a writing writing something they barely know anything about. Tiffany has done her research and the book is a realistic look at how those who choose these lifestyles actually live.
In this installment, Ms. Reisz creates a storyline that allows readers to learn so much about the multiple main/side characters. While Nora remains my favorite among them all, she is written in a slightly different light in this book. She is immensely enjoying her sexuality during a summer assignment. Her orders are to relocate to Griffin's home for a few months and train the newest submissive: Michael (remember him?). I loved the way Nora's protectiveness shines during her time with this damaged young man. Even though Søren didn't join them, he is a focal point in a parallel storyline which allows readers to gain valuable insight into his past. Ms. Reisz ends The Angel on a tortuous cliffhanger that I CANNOT WAIT to continue! The Prince will be on my "read" list soon. So excited!!!
My favorite quote:
"Love is the open wound that you hope never heals."
Halfway through the book, I was irritated half to death, and I finally worked out why. It wasn't just because the characters do not think or behave like real human beings--when one character mentions that he was born on December 21, another character replies thoughtfully, "The longest night of the year." You know, like people do.
But no, it wasn't just that, although that snippet of conversation is in fact a symptom of the disease. The disease is Expositionitis.
I should point out here that one of the major subplots of the book is a journalist investigating a priest for misconduct. Secrets abound and reputations must be protected. And yet again and again, characters who have never met before, have no reason to trust each other, and in fact have every reason *not* to trust each other fling open all their closets and let the skeletons dance the conga right outta there.
The first time it happened, I was puzzled, but thought it must be deliberate. It was not consistent with who the character had been in the previous book, but I figured Reisz was perhaps opening a new aspect of her personality and thought that, of course, this strange revelation would have consequences.
By the fifth time it happened, I realized that it was the only way the author knew how to deliver backstory to the reader. What other excuse can there be for a character to reveal **to a complete stranger, the investigative reporter** that she engaged in consensual incest for years and also committed murder? What other reason would there be for a teenage boy to appear just long enough to give a soliloquy about the personal history of the local priest...to the same reporter? Why would two men who hate each other share deep personal confidences that render them vulnerable for no logical reason? Because the author wants the reader to know, and this is the device she returns to again and again.
That might seem like an odd reason to give up on a book, but it just strained credulity. I want to read books about characters who act, think, and speak like human beings, not convenient plot devices or--and I should have seen this coming from Book 1--dissertations on the human condition. Reisz, though she writes well, is obsessed with her own cleverness, and it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
