Underneath all the action is a cohesive, philosophical underpinning that speaks of a greater wisdom than mere Hollywood images of zombies, demons or even angels. There are multiple levels of power and understanding reflected in each of the characters, but it is most satisfying to see the main two step into higher levels of consciousness as they commit themselves to each other.
This book is fantastic--I've already re-read it several times to peel back and savor a richness and complexity that is rare to find in works of this sort. The only gripe I have is the line editing could have been better (subjunctive please in those "if" clauses plus some missing words), but I nevertheless highly recommend it.
This is a world that feels well lived in, which is helped by the large supporting cast. Isela's comrades at the academy, Azrael's guards, and Isela's family all have their roles in the events that unfold. (Plus her family are excellent.) Isela's dancing is described in a lovely, evocative way, and she has an inner strength that's very compelling. The chemistry between Isela and Azrael is steamy, and the romance is well-balanced with the action. I also appreciated the author's characterization of Azrael; while he is seriously powerful and inhuman, he's also a fair leader and capable of real gentleness. On a meta level, there's some neat stuff going on with life and death, chaos and order, and the strength it takes to love.
I'm really glad I picked this one up.
The world is fascinating. The characters are mysteries and deep so I stayed embedded in the story with the character. I love that. What would you do if Azrael a powerful necromancer, one of the most powerful creatures in the world, called on you to dance for him and aid in finding a necromancer killer? Read and find out.
