I have to say that this was so interesting to read after I had read Lacrimosa (Requiem #1). While it may have been interesting to know the exact relationship between Azza and Mikayel before reading Lacrimosa, I think reading this after opened my eyes as to Mikayel's purpose. It demonstrated that he understood so much more of what Nesy and Ayden were going through then he let on. And it brought to mind questions of what this will mean in the second novel of the Requiem series. It demonstrated that there was so much more to the story behind Azza and Mikayel's falling out, more than either of them was willing to share with Nesy and Ayden in Lacrimosa.
I love how the story revolves around saving Mikayel; that he is destined for greater things than he can even recognize. I love that his friends are willing to sacrifice themselves for him, so that humanity can ultimately be saved.
It was interesting to watch Azza's transformation. I have to say that his anger at the end seemed a little out of place, at first. But, having read Lacrimosa, and understanding what the marks ultimately do to their holder, I was able to piece together how this would happen. How he would forget where he came from and only know that Mikayel and the other angels need to be defeated.
I have to say that I would have liked to see a little more of Demi's character in this book. But, seeing as she was Mikayel's reason for having to overcome emotions, it makes more sense to see it from his point of view.
Once again, Fonseca has a way with words. They flow off the page and into your soul. They grab your heart and pull you in. You feel each and every emotion the characters are experiencing. You feel the angst Mikayel is unable to overcome. You feel the power Azza encounters as he embraces his emotions, something an angel is not ever supposed to do. You feel the sorrow that invades Demi as she makes her final decision to leave Mikayel.
Thank you, Christine, for creating a world so real, so full of sacrifice and emotion, so full of issues that can tear us apart. The experience is otherworldly, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
When given an important task by the Council, Mikayel experiences life as a human. Wanting nothing more than to shed his human body and become his true self, Mikayel must learn how to control his thoughts and emotions while spending time as a human adolescent. After Mikayel and his friends, Azza and Demi, end up caught in the middle of a power struggle with the demons, will Mikayel follow the rules or follow his heart?
Written in the alternating perspectives of Mikayel and his best friend Azzaziel, the friends struggle with their heightened human emotions. One has the desire to do what has been asked of them by the Council, while the other wants to recklessly take action. Had this book not been comprised of otherworldly elements, the plot could drop directly into the YA romance genre. Although I did find it interesting, there were not enough unique elements to set it apart.
My own feelings were torn from me in this short, exciting read! Christine really researched the subject matter and it shows in her writing, I can't wait to read the rest of this series!
