Requiem was a really good follow up. I felt like Requiem took the perfect spot as the middle book in a trilogy, it wrapped up nearly everything that happened in Providence, while setting up a strong background for what I assume will happen in Eden. So, what I liked about Requiem:
1. Jared. Question: will I ever get over Jared. Answer: No.
2. Claire. I have to admit, I really just love the Ryel family. Jared, Claire, and Bex are all such well rounded characters wit
If I were in an alternate universe, I think I would have really liked to get into Brown University. According to this book, you don't need o study, ever, you can go MIA in some other country for a few months and come back to resume studies like nothing ever happened and no questions asked, and you can be one serious demon ass-kicker and still get a four-point-oh GPA without even trying.

Either that or the characters in the story must be really smart. Freaking smart. Like some Einstein genius. As
Oh my. This was good. So very very good.
The Providence series are crack books, that's what they are. You get addicted to them and just want more and more and more. And more.
I didn't want to finish this one so fast so I tried to stay away. I really did. But the book didn't agree with me.
And I'm sorry but I can't sum up my emotions because right now I'm too high on awesomeness.. and this review will most likely turn out to be incoherent ramblings if I were to give it a try. Not a good idea if y

“Requiem” picks up right where “Providence” leaves off.
Nina and Jared are together and having dealt with the challenges left behind by her father following her death. Nina and Jared discover she is part of a prophecy that could upset the delicate balance between Heaven and Hell. The question becomes how to protect Nina and still run her Dad’s company and plan her wedding to Jared.
Very surprisingly I thought this sequel was better than “Providence”…not something I find happening very

Requiem is the second book in the planned Providence trilogy by self-published author, Jamie McGuire. While I thoroughly enjoyed Providence, I think this second installment is even better than its predecessor.

Requiem picks up right where Providence left off. Nina has been recuperating from an injury sustained at the end of Providence, that the love of her life, and protector, Jared could not protect her from. In addition to that, Nina has be
Jessica  (My Not So Vacant Shelf)
Ok. So I loved the first one and I still love Jared and Nina in this one. In fact I’m starting to really appreciate and love all the characters in this novel. However, Jamie McGuire has stepped outside of just Angels and Demons and into religion in this novel. I’m a little scared to read the next one because when it comes to religion it’s generally a subject that I think writers should try to avoid or tread lightly. I know, I know. How can you someone write about angels and demons but not write ...more
Tough Critic Book Reviews
Jamie McGuire is 3 for 3, another great read. After reading Providence, I could not wait for the sequel. Requiem did not disappoint. I loved the addition of Bex as a main character; his angel side is mature way beyond his years while his human side is your typical 13 year old boy. It was also great to see Nina throw away her damsel in distress title and get in the fight. Jared also changes in that he stands his ground alot more with Nina. In Providence, I made the comment that sometimes Jared ap ...more
2.5 stars

Much better than the original - though Im not sure if that means anything. I doubt I would have bothered to read this if I hadn't gotten the entire trilogy on Kindle for $2.99, bc I really thought the 1st book was awful.

There was a real plot this time, and it was actually fairly interesting, if not exactly original. It helped that the book wasn't 100% focused on the "romance" between Jared and Nina, as that has got to be one of the creepiest, most boring love stories in YA Wannabe Land.
Just marry this poor boy already Nina!! Plus, HA I was correct about my suspicion.
I really liked this one.. The action and suspense really picked up in this 2nd book of the series. Cannot wait to find out what happens to them all in Eden. Ok, off now to start book 3!

It still reminds me a great deal of Twilight, but it still doesn't bother me. This one does have a lot of religion in it, but again, that doesn't bother me. I just know some people might not be keen on that. I think I love all the characters even more now.

Çok büyük hayal kırıklığına uğradım. Halbuki ilk kitabı sevmiş ve beğenmiştim. Son bölüme kadar 2 vermeyi düşünüyordum ama son olaylar en azından biraz kurtarıcı oldu.
Chelsea ❤Peril Please❤
Eeehhhh....I don't really know how to rate this-It wasn't good and it wasn't bad. It was just..ok-and that makes me sad becuase after the first, I figured the intensity would only pick up. Instead, it goes into great detail about Nina's history and the history of...well....I suppose religion? I wouldn't know because suffice to say, I skimmed at least 50% of this novel-I know, tsk tsk. I just couldn't get into the story. Which sucks. A lot.

I love Claire, and I love Jared. I even love Ryan(now),


Amazing!!!!!! Requiem picked up right where Providence left off. You find out that Nina's life is changed completely after Jared & her makes the decision to be together. There was always something exciting going on. I couldn't put this book down and when I had to put my fantasy world on hold to deal with reality I couldn't wait to get back to the story so I could find out what happens next. I love the way Jared loves Nina so much that he would do anything and everything to protect her
Maureen Hoar
This book/series should get 20 stars!!! I love this book and Jared is my all time favorite hero. Edward Cullen who??? The plot of this series is well thought out. The suspense literally kills me. I have to take little breaks every now and then to just breath.
Nina and Jared are neck deep in trouble. Nina discovers something in her lineage that makes her a mortal enemy of Hell. Jared, Claire and Bex with an addition of a couple of more than human friends do everything in their power to keep Nina
Kerry Hall
Absolutely love these book 5 stars
Okay, so Jamie McGuire clearly decided to branch out with Requiem and try to take on something different. Beautiful Disaster was an amazingly touching love story and Providence took an all-encompasing love and threw it in the middle of some dark and mysterious events. I was curious to see how the romance in Providence would play out in Requiem without growing tired, but Jamie took me completely by surprise!! Requiem isn't just a continuation of this unforgettable love story that I fell head over ...more

What can I say about Requiem that would do it justice....... HOLY NEPHILIM!!!!!!!!!! Jamie you are incredible!

Requiem picks up right where Providence left off. Nina and Jared have survived the worse. Nina is healed from the shot out she was in and Jared is more protective of her. Nina is still reeling over the information she has learned about her father. Now she is caught up in a cat and mouse game with demons who want the book her father stole.

Jared will do anything to keep Nina safe from the

I remember being impressed with the first book so when I saw this in display at the library I couldn’t help but pick it up with some measure of high expectations. Much to my dismay, I found REQUIEM to have suffered greatly from the dreaded middle book syndrome. The synopsis:

Dreaming of the dead might mean a restless night for anyone, but for Nina Grey it was a warning.

Still healing from her last run-in with
Um, wow. Simply wow. It would seem that I'm barely able to form a coherent sentence to express the awesomeness that is Requiem and the Providence series. I didn't think it was possible, but this sequel built more suspense from the original and went off in a direction I had clearly not anticipated. It's clear that Ms. McGuire is in a class of her own when it comes to the young adult genre and should be commended on her ability to make a fantasy book feel like it could be reality.

Well, I stared and finished book two all in one day. First off, I actually didn't enjoy most of this book, but I was attached to characters enough from the first book to keep me going. It wasn't boring, or necessarily bad, it was just nothing like book one. This biggest difference was that while book one had just the right amount of supernatural surrounding a cute love story that had some edge of your seat action, book two was ALLLLLLLLLLLL paranormal! Which brings me to why I didn't like most o ...more

What i strongly feel right now (after finishing the book just a few minutes ago) is the need to get to the next book. haha. Well, while the first book is all about falling in love and has a lot of sweet scenes, the second one is all about keeping the relationship and facing odds. The characters definitely have all grown up. Claire still being the spunk ...more

4.5 STARS!!

Providence focused on Jared’s and Nina’s relationship, the introduction, how it unfolds and the beginnings of their coming-together.

Requiem focuses on the consequences of Jared’s decision to appear and reveal himself to Nina and the battles they encounter because of it. Requiem elaborates more on why he wasn’t supposed to reveal himself, given occurrences in the past, and they have to fight for each other’s love and life.

Nina still battles with feeling as if she had to know everyth

What an awesome read. Jamie McGuire continues to impress me with her talent. She is a very gifted author. I am absolutely convinced she can write anything and it would be amazing. I have now read a contemporary romance and two paranormal romances by her. She shifts between the two different genres with ease and grace. I recently found out from visiting her website that she plans to write a book about Zombies. There truly isn’t anything Jamie McGuire can’t do. She is phenomenal and now one of my ...more

Requiem is the second book in the trilogy Providence by Jamie McGuire. The book pretty much picks up where Providence left off.

Nina and Jared are happy, playing house living together in his loft. The demons are still after them but things have cooled down a lot. Nina begins having dreams of her dead father and Jared's dead father telling her to find the book and she is the one. The dreams, I should say nightmares keep her up and the lack of slee

Requiem is the second book in the Providence trilogy by Jamie McGuire. This book essentially focuses on Nina and the back story as to why she needs to be protected. Further, it had a lot more serious undertones than its predecessor and was set at a faster pace then the first book. Much to my dismay, because Requiem focused on the history and the whys of what is happening, Nina and Jared moments were few and far between. There were still some moments that had me sighing; however, I just wish ther ...more

Action packed continuation in this series with a happy for now ending. I loved how all the characters are developed in this book. Ryan gets resolution in this book. I think Claire has become my new favorite. She's kick-ass. I have a feeling she's going to get her HEA in the next book. At least I hope so. Also reading about Nina as 'Acting CEO' was super fun. I loved reading how capable she was. I'm a bit suspicious of Kim. I feel she has an ulterior motive. Hmmm or maybe not. Let's see

I really wanted to like this series. But Nina just gets on my nerves so much it's suffocating.

That was my beef with this book. Nina is basically absent from all the "good" stuff that make this kind of books so exciting. I'm used to kick-ass heroines but Nina doesn't come even close to being one. She's just another Bella. She's also very self-centered and self-involved beyond believe.

I was going to give this book a 1 star but Claire and Ryan were the best thing I could praise about this book. Eve

Oooh lots of angst in this! It had me questioning everything and everyone. Again, some parts I found confusing like the Pollocks and the different names and terminology. a nutshell...
Nina and Jareds relationship seems to be nothing but hurt. Theres no fun or happy times, its full of them keeping things from each other and just general sadness.
Ryan...I didnt want him to say what he said when he came back from war. I wanted him to be how he was before he went. I like him. I like the calmn
Oh My Gah! I thought I liked book 1, I LOVED part 2. I must say Requiem is better than Providence. I cant wait to read Eden. This book was action all the way through. If you haven't read this trilogy, you don't know what you are missing!! Get to reading!
