Caspia has no time to think about that right now, not with Ethan and his transition into humanity which doesn't go as smoothly as they had hoped. Until Ethan discovers that it isn't the transition that i ...more
In book two Darkness in the Blood of the Angels' Edge series, the story starts nicely where Gifts of the Blood left off, and takes off at the speed of light.
This book absolutely tops it's prequel in excitement, suspense, romance, magic, mysticism and adventure. Ms Keire has an incredible talent and mastery of writing that captures a readers interest quickly and holds on through every last page. The hook that entrances a reader isn't just within the storyline with this series, it als ...more
That said, Caspia still irritated me quite a bit. She's impulsive, somehow thinks she can protect her loved ones without consulting them at all (particularly when it's obvious they're keeping many secrets from her), bumbling when she is pro-active and generally trying to ...more
Caspia meets Jack and begins getting important information from him; answers to who and what she is. She's a natural defender and protector and now that Ethan is human and Logan's getting a second chance at life, she feels she needs to protect them both. The Nephilim descendants are being taken by the Dark side and now the Light wants to destroy the descendants to keep them from becoming weapons; war is coming.

This book is the sequel to the book Gifts of the Blood. In this book, Caspia Chastain is in a relationship with Ethaniel -- a former fallen angel who is now mortal and very human. Her brother, who had been dying of cancer is now healthy and back to his old self.
However, it appears that the price Ethaniel paid to give Logan back his life and his health. Being human and mortal is tough on the once-falle ...more
I have to say that I was a little disappointed with Ethan and Caspia's relationship though. There just seemed to be a wall between them. No romance, no sparks, etc... Caspia finds out that she doesn't really know anything about ...more
Everything was just better this time around. Clea ...more
There's nothing wrong with the writing style. It's the fact that there is no connection between Caspia and Ethan. He's human now and it's like there's no desire fr ...more
This second book in the Angel's Edge series is magnificent. I have bee so wrapped up in this story that I could not put it down. The writing is incredibly detailed and fluid. I am anxious to start book 3.
Book 2 was just as good, if not better than book 1, as you were futher drawn into the brilliantly created and described world of Whitfield. You learn more and more about the Nephilim and the twisted worlds of light and dark. I enjoyed how much further Caspia was developed as a character, and her reactions to the situations she found herself in, they were realistic and believable.
Things have been ...more
My biggest gripe... the editing! There were typos, missing spaces between words and sentences, incorrect grammar... I felt like I was reading a high schooler's hastily 're-typed story. I know that one will appear every now and again, especially in the Kindle form. I can normally accept that and don't pay it much mind. However, this was just about every third page. Ms. Keire needs to fi ...more
There was drama, romance, mystery and so much more. I'm not a spoiler girl, so my advice pick this series up!
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me to review this ARC book and give my honest opinion.
