Fast paced and riveting, this one will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The first book in this series intrigued me and ended up on a cliffhanger and I think that there was so much going on I would have been better off recapping the first book, as I was quite confused who the sub-characters were, Of course I knew who Sybille was, but the Saints and 'spirits' had me thinking... who were they again?
At the end of Book 1 the Demons attacked - and at the beginning of this book we have Sybile and Eston the Global Good's curator and guardian of banished relics warehoused in the Arctic Region, heading for the base where the strange light is bursting through to the heavens...
The supernatural event caused earthquakes, but we now have Michael the Archangel ato help defend the world, although no one understands who or what the demons are due to Global Good turning the human race into mindless shift workers!
This book was at times hard to follow, but has a lot of underlying messages that the reader can take or ignore - are we heading for disaster? our world is vastly over populated, and there are plenty of atrocities being created... the book has a religious undertone but that is not specifically thrust upon the reader.
By the end of the book we the world has turned back to god, the epilogue was a bit of a disappointment, it read more like an obituary in a paper, succinct and to the point.
I gave this book 3 stars because I think its a unique story that shows how if the christian faith was forgotten in the future, and then by chance the world was introduced to it once again... how would the world and its people interpreted it. The author has a expressive style, but the story for me got a tad confusing in the times when a lot was going on, I couldn't remember who the characters were or what they were there to do.
over all I think you will either get this series or you won't and with that either love it nor hate it.
I had high hopes for this series after book 1 but I think in the end it gave me a predictable ending and in a way was disappointed.
The formatting probably had a bit to do with it - being an arc it wasn't formatted yet and did not flow well, and I do think that hindered my reading of the story.
My favorite chapter is The problems of this age. Loved when Franklin is explaining to Sybille the different kind of demons, I love the whole conversation with Blair, Franklin and Sybille, it was very interesting and it makes you think.
My fave LOL moment is when Sybille licked her plate clean after her meal in fear of Eston taking it away from her then she says; "you gave me no choice" OMG! I was dying, that was so funny! I could just imagine me doing the same thing. I talked to my daughter about this scene and she loved it too.
Also thought the Epilogue was great, I was happy to know what happened to all of them after the end of the story.
Great conclusion to the story with a HEA.
Will definitely recommend this story to my friends starting with the first book of course.
