In this second book the angels are still learning and growing as conflict develops. You feel a sense of injustice and pain for what they have lost and how they struggle to continue to survive. You begin to see the divisions more clearly and the strength of loyalty to one side or the other. You live amongst them as innocence is lost and replaced by growing sophistication unknown as yet if good or bad.
The concept of free will is now fully realised on both sides and the angels discuss its complexity. Their ability to reason continually develops and they learn more than just loyalty to the Almighty, but to each other.
In my review of the first book I used the words, 'cool' and 'cute' and the second hasn't lost any of that. What has happened is that the second book is cool and cute but now deeper and darker, an excellent progression from book 1 to book 2. Character development, plot and pace have all been crafted well.
I love how you get a sense of the angels themselves as individuals and within their 'groups'. Despite the titles of the books, Jarahmael isn't the only character focused on, but is certainly the main character. His love for Lilith continues, as does her love for him. But Jarahmael has to continue to make difficult decisions regarding his loyalty to the Almighty or to help Lilith.
Even if if you know the age old story, the author's clever approach keeps you enthralled in all of the events as they happen and chaos begins to build. You can feel the sadness, anger, anxiety and tension as the story progresses. The struggles of power, greed, pride, and desire get more intense and the lines between good and evil, right and wrong, truth and deceit begin to blur.
And where is the all-knowing and omni-present Almighty? Why is he allowing certain things to happen? Will he really allow free-will to destroy his creation? Can the created conquer the Creator? These are a few of the many questions that arise.
You MUST read this series to get the answers. In Rebellion gets you to start asking these questions, but there are more answers to come...I hope. Bring on Book 3!
Epic fantasy in the world of warrior Angels.
A first rate read.!!
