From the Back Cover
The heart-pounding conclusion to the Books of Raziel trilogy, a gothic supernatural tale about a girl who discovers she holds the keys to both Heaven and Hell—and that angels, demons, and all the creatures in between will stop at nothing to possess her and control that power.
Like sand in an hourglass, time is slipping away . . .
The war started by three powerful angel siblings—Raziel, Lucifel, and Israfel—has divided the kingdoms of both Heaven and Hell for ages. Now, that destruction is spilling over into the human world, and only the Archon can stop it.
She is Angela Mathers, a human who sits on the Devil’s vacant throne, seemingly fulfilling a prophecy of ruin. As the Archon, Angela alone can oppose Lucifel and open Raziel’s Book to use its power for good. But to do so would mean murdering her best friend, Sophia, and that’s a sacrifice Angela refuses to contemplate.
But ruin does not always mean destruction—sometimes it means revolution. Echoes of the past have resurrected the Angelus, the Song of Creation, and its notes are somehow linked to the Book. Now Angela must discover the truth behind the song and her own origins, but time is running out. There are dark forces who believe Angela’s success will not end tragedy but continue it, and they’re determined to stop the Archon’s destiny once and for all.
“[Sabrina’s] unique take on religion and angels is truly innovative.” —RT Book Reviews on Covenant

I don't even know where to begin with this. So much has happened to Angela/the Archon, Sophia, Kim and the 'gang' over the past couple of years the emotional roller coaster is exhausting - even as a reader!
With Angela taking over Lucifel's throne in Hell and not opening the Book of Raziel/Sophia, the worlds are literally colliding and melding more everyday. Once Angela comes out of her trance (being fed angel blood by Lilith) she and Troy escape Hell to try to find alternative to cutting Sophia to pieces. The Angelus, the song of the Angels used to separate the worlds is in Sophia, but there are 2 stanzas missing. Some people, sadly, don't make it, yet with everyone going through Hell, Heaven, and back again it's a miracle anyone survives.
It's a little sad at the end b/c one of my favorite characters died and I was very much hoping they didn't. But so many things are revealed in this book, so many events occur and so many relationships were built.
One of the most esoteric book series I've ever read - a series for a real READER! Perhaps one day we'll get stories from some of the other characters POVs.
The story has many of the typical YA elements: angels, demons, jinn, heaven, hell, and semi-clueless humans. It also has names that most YA readers should recognize: Lillith, Raziel, Lucifel, and Israfel. These names come up in nearly all YA books with demons and angels.
The story is that a human contains the soul of a Supernal (god) and she has to set the future course of the world. She can choose destruction or salvation. Of course, the angels and demons all want a piece of the action and set about trying to kill or persuade her. She is put through many trials by the demons, the angels and the human followers of each. In the end she finally gets all the information she needs and theoretically makes the right choice.
What I liked about the book:
even though I had not read the previous two I followed along pretty well with the story
the god soul reincarnated into a human was new to me
her take on the Jinn was entirely new to me, also I am assuming is more like the actual folk lore of the Jinn/genies and not the happy, friendly lamp type
What I didn’t like about the book:
overall it was a lot like most other YA books with angels and demons
the humans knew way too much about the angels and demons to seemingly do nothing to stop any of the bad stuff from happening
For a YA book it has some unique ideas and is a fresh take on the typical good vs evil fare. Overall I would recommend it to anyone who likes supernatural YA fiction.
In an earlier post about Archon, the first book in the series, I said the book was for serious readers who are looking for a new take on a subject that has been beaten to death. The second book, Covenant, opened up the pace and now Angelus is a fantastic closer. I would suggest that they be read in order to get a clear understanding of the trilogy's plot line and characters, the characters relationships to each other and the evolution of the setting.
Can't wait for more books to come out from this author!
