Frohock creates great peril and formidable foes. Against these forces she holds up Diago, part angel, part daimon, and marked by both. He is burdened by betrayal, cruelty and wrongdoings in his past, distrust and discrimination in his present, uncertainty and dangers in his future, and the self-doubt that is his constant companion.
For those moments when he lacks belief in himself, Diago has the faith of his partner, Miquel, his newly-found son, Rafael, and some of the Los Nefilim, a group of angels' marshals he had recently pledged his allegiance to. There is a powerful scene when societal prejudice is shattered by the simplicity of a child's untainted viewpoint.
The magic system in LOS NEFILIM revolves around music. Nefilims derive power from the melodies they sing. Together, they can also create harmonies that weave even greater power. With their songs, they can break evil spells, weaken opponents, transcend time and space, and even affect the material world.
It is a rare book that is able to move me, to penetrate my modern jadedness. Not an entirely desirable occurrence when you are reading this book teary-eyed at a Starbucks. WITHOUT LIGHT OR GUIDE is able to remind me of commitments that remain steadfast in the face of adversities, and while they may not as yet save the day--or the world, for that matter--they may just save moments from absolute despair. When it is difficult to sustain hope that all will be delivered, it is enough to know that small victories can be won, keeping the song playing no matter how softly.
Well done, and I look forward to reading Part Three of Los Nefilim!

This isn't to say there isn't a strong plot and events in this one do a nice job of setting up the 3rd novella and I'll be interested in seeing where things go from here.
