Book one in the Requiem series
Edition Read: Kindle
It's been three thousand years since the fall of Azzaziel and the rebirth of evil; three thousand years since the Sentinal Order, and elite group of warrior angels, returned to Celestium. Their job-rid Earth of the dark creatures, the UnHoly. And with luck, end Azza's rule.
As if casting out demons isn't hard enough, five-hundred-year-old Nesy has to masquerade as a teenage girl to do it. Nesy is the best of the Sentinals. She never makes mistakes, never hesitates, never gets emotionally involved. Until she meets Aydan.
He is evil incarnate; a fallen angel that feeds off the souls of others. Everything Nesy is supposed to hate. But she can't, because he's also the love of her former life as a human girl-a life that ended too soon, tying her emotions she was never supposed to feel.
Now Nesy must choose between doing her duty-damning Aydan to the fiery depths of hell-or saving him, and condemning herself. And her choice may cost her, and Celestium, far more than anyone realizes.
How much will she sacrifice for love?
I was provided a copy of this book for an honest review through a read-to-recap program
MY OVERVIEW: Wow, this book is written beautifully. At points it was almost poetic with how it was written.
PROS: You really feel everything that Nesy and Aydan go through. You have set in your mind how you want everything to end. The history between them was set up perfectly. I just wish that Lori's history had been included a little better. I aslo loved the inner struggle that Aydan went through. Especially how it is clear that Nesy made him different.
CONS: I think that really the only Con I had was that it wasn't a stand-alone-book. It flowed really beautifully and would have made perfect sense as a single book rather than a series.
MY FINAL THOUGHTS: I'm not sure how the series will really continue and still have the great flow and poetry that this book had, but I look forward to continuing the series.
