First off. Stop. And look at the cover. Yup. I know. Great stuff. Makes you want to read it straight away doesn't it? On to the book itself now.
Last year around the same time as now I read Lou Morgan’s debut: Blood and Feathers. From the first page onwards I just knew that Lou Morgan would be an author to watch out for. Blood and Feathers was a solid start into a new series and into the established genre of Urban Fantasy. A lot of coo...more

Rebellion is the second book in the Blood and Feathers series. I reviewed Lou Morgan's debut novel last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I was really looking forward to reading this second instalment in the series. The novel picks up six months after the ending of the first one and we find Alice in a much changed situation from her previous life. Struggling to learn to control her new-found powers, living in Mallory's old home in the sacristy and she's quickly running out of money. Meanwhile,...more

Lou Morgan’s 2012 debut Blood and Feathers proved to be one of the best novels I’d read that year, and also a fine guide in my exploration of the urban fantasy genre which started that very year with Chris F. Holm’s Dead Harvest from Angry Robot Books. Blood and Feathers was a great read but it missed the mark a little, yet it was good enough that I looked forward to reading the sequel Rebellion, which was relea...more

Oh Mallory, Mallory, Mallory.

There just isn’t any other way to start this review. Alice, Vin, Mallory, and the rest of the angels are back in the sequel to the excellent Blood and Feathers, and things are getting a whole lot worse: kicked out of hell, the Fallen have nothing to lose and everything to win and have taken the battle to the humans, pulling strings behind the scenes whilst Earthbounds and Descended alike struggle to keep the balance at the very least even. Tipping it back in their fa...more

It has taken me almost an age to review this book, which is not an indication of its quality. I (sort-of-but-didn’t-really) went to the signing and launch of Blood and Feathers: Rebellion and read the book almost immediately, on the way home, stroking happily my new signed copy. It made for good train reading after a long day in London.

Blood and Feathers: Rebellion is generally where the future of one branch of urban fantasy should be: just as full of action an...more
The second book in the Blood & Feathers series, "Rebellion" deals with the fallout of half-Angel Alice's efforts to prevent the Fallen and Lucifer from creating absolute chaos and war. The Fallen are more sinister, Alice is increasingly paranoid while still struggling to adjust to her pyrokinetic abilities, and this time around she has to work with Adriel, the angel of death, both to keep herself out of the limelight from Fallen eyes, not to mention having to keep hidden from the Archangel M...more
War between Angels and the Fallen Angels of Lucifer's army.

For me, the main character isn't my main focus like it usually is in other books. I really love the entire setting around the Angels and the Fallen. I love hearing about their background stories and getting to know each of their personalities. I also love that Lucifer is the end-all-be-all bad guy of this series.

In this particular book, I feel like Alice didn't do much this time. I mean, really though, how could she top what she did in t...more

Review: After the end of Blood and Feathers, Alice knows the angels will want her again, but for now, she just wants to be able to get back to a normal life. she then gets ropes into working for an undertaker, who is also the Angel of Death. Then riots involving Descended and Fallen tip the balance in the ongoing fight for control, and Alice and the angels have a lot to lose.
I left Blood and Feathers thinking “this is so good!” I started the next book in the series literally ten minutes after fi...more

So....was "Rebellion" going to be "that difficult 2nd album"....?

The short answer is "no". This is an excellent sequel to "Blood & Feathers": Alice is now working as an undertaker's receptionist for the Angel of Death, Mallory hasn't been seen for 6 months, Vin's in Hong Kong, and there is no trace of Lucifer....

This book has a much more claustrophobic feel than the 1st, which works well: it's a grim book in places (particularly in the scenes with Rimmon, Mallory & Toby), & Alice lea...more

I really enjoyed this book. Right up to 3 pages from the end. It seemed to just end. Out of the blue, over. That is the only reason the book doesn't get 5 stars from this wannabe book reviewer.

I love the violence, but must of all, I really dig Lou Morgan's sarcastic sense of humor. The relationship between Alice, Mallory and Vin is really something to watch unfold as well. Really looking forward to book #3.
Just finished reading the last pages, and well, I think I need a few minutes or more before I'm even remotely ready to summaries what i feel and thought about Rebellion.
SO for now, I'll leave you with:


You can read a full view at the road so far (in Swedish ;).

The second book in the series was also unique and messed up. I grew to love Mallory even more and cannot wait for the next book in the series.
Jan Edwards
I don't give many books 5 stars but this one deserves it. A one-sitting read!
CLIFFHANGER NO! I wan't to know what happened!
Loved, loved, loved.

Having choices is hard.
