Overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Scarlett's lost memories returning are just the beginning - starting a chain reaction of events that forces her to both remember and rediscover her past, while changing from the fairly ordinary woman into the kickass heroine she'll have to be to survive.
While not overpowered, she's capable enough to get out of some tricky situations, using a combination of memories, contacts and, increasingly, her combat training. Yet he always seems to get pinned to a wall with some muscled man cutting off her air. Well, everyone has a weak spot.
Plenty of action - the clothed kind, though Scarlett's no nun - and a swift-moving storyline kept me riveted from start to finish. This would make a brilliant movie and I definitely hope there's more of Scarlett's escapades to come.
My biggest complaint about this book is that the sequel's not out yet.
Easily five stars.
Scarlet, her memories vanished in an explosion, undergoes the classic quest for personal revelation. As her older memories slowly return, she is propelled on a perilous journey that promises more danger than the life she has built as an amnesiac.
Many authors would be compelled to drop large amounts of information on readers when dealing with missing memories, but Wilke does a fantastic job of slowly filling in the relevant memories as they populate. The story builds maximum momentum in the final few chapters of the book where Scarlet encounters a series of conflicts that are seamlessly interwoven and leave the reader flipping the pages faster and wishing they had taken a speed reading course to get to the end.
I read Scarlet Angel is only two sittings. The only thing that kept me from reading it in one was pesky life mattes like work, food, etc. If you like action, sci-fi, and self-discovery novels, Scarlet Angel is for you. I eagerly await the sequel I am fortunate enough to know is in the works.
The book revolves around a woman, Scarlett, whose memory vanished following an explosion. Since that time, she's rebuilt a new, more wholesome, life. The book begins with Scarlett getting some of her old memories back. They push her on an extremely dangerous search for answers (she becomes a total badass on the way).
During her quest, you learn the book is set in the future. However, Wilke does such a good job grounding you in reality, anything futuristic (technology, etc...) feels natural.
Scarlett (who becomes Scarlet later on) is one of those heroins you root for from the beginning. She's strong, senstive, snarky... basically any straight guy's dream girl. Wilke does a good job of diversifying her from the other characters in the novel. Each one has his/her own personality and set of problems.
Wilke also does a great job of pacing the story. Information is revealed in manageable chunks, and enough mystery is maintained to keep the reader wanting more.
For me, the book really takes off during the last third. He manages multiple conflicts occurring at the same time and does so very well. I was so caught up in the events happening, I read that last third in one sitting.
Now that it's all said and done, I'm eagerly awaiting the sequel. Yeah!
