Black Night (Black Wings #2)
If obstinate dead people were all that Maddy had to worry about, life would be much easier. But the best-laid plans of Agents and fallen angels often go awry. Deaths are occurring contrary to the natural order, Maddy's ...more
Although I enjoyed this book for the most part, a lot of what I loved about the first book, Black Wings, was missing. I had quite a few iffy moments while reading and found myself genuinely relieved when I ended Black Night more positive than not. I have no plans as of yet to quit this series, but I have to admit I’m a little more wary than I was after reading the first book.
It seemed like a good chunk of my time reading the beginning of the book was spent trying to resist the urge to ...more
Uzun zamandır okuduğum en iyi serilerden biri. Keşke Türkçeye'de çevirseler demeden duramıyorum :D
Her saniye ayrı bir güzeldi. Labirent olayı biraz abartılı geldi, ama çok da değildi. Aşırılık yoktu.İnandırıcı bir kitaptı. Hikayeye kendinizi kaptırıyordunuz. Hele Lucifer'a bayılıyorum. Sürekli gelsin.
Kitap tam benlikti. Her an aksiyon vardı ama aksiyonlar Cassie Palmer'ın olay akışınan çok farklı ve yorucu asla değildi. Kızın cevapları beni çok eğlendirdi ...more
I couldn't wait to start this one when I received it after a rather long wait. I still remembered how much I liked Black Wings so I really looked forward to start it. The humor in Black Night is still wonderful but I missed some things that made me like the first installment so much.
I'm not sure if Maddie was already that immature in book 1. She's in her thirties but her actions sometimes felt more like those of a teenager. She is a strong woman but pe ...more
It was non stop action. The first few chapters were just someone attacking her and her companions, her getting knocked out or passing out or losing track of time, then getting partially healed, and then figuring out some ...more
This time around Madeline is under even more stress than ever. She's mixed up in supernatural politics, beings used a pawns in a game she doesn't want anything to do with and being pressured by all the men in her life. I think she needs a day off, with pay.
This instalment was emotional, exciting and action packed. Beezle is still hilariously annoying and demandi ...more
How can anyone NOT like Madeline Black and her awesome gargoyle Beezle? BLACK NIGHT continues the series with action, suspense, and fantastic characters.
I was disappointed with the non relationship between Maddie and Gabriel. It was sorta uncomfortable to see them together with Gabriel refusing to be with Maddie. I liked getting to know JB and having him a bigger part of the story, I actually wouldn't be to disappointed if him and Madeline ende ...more
I liked it, it wasn't thrilling, often predictable, but not in an annoying way though.
The thing I hate the most about these books is the repetition of some phrases, this always irks me A LOT in a book. And I also noticed that in every 3 pages there's some kind of a monster showing, it sure gets old!
In another note, I didn't like the lack of explanation about the Nathaniel situation. I need to know if it was really an effect of the faerie queen or not. And I also need to have ...more
Ne alaka diyebilirsiniz ama bu sözün Christina Henry'e de çekici geldiğini ve bunu son derece özgün bir şekilde 'uyarladığını' düşünüyorum. Son 2 aydır en çok zevk alarak okuduğum kitap bu oldu.
Kitapta her tarzdan yaratık var. Melekler ağırlıkta olmakla beraber diğer türlerle harmanlanışını çok sevdim. Taht kavgaları, anlaşmaya varma çabaları falan gerçekten ilaç gibi ...more
İlk kitaptan pek hoşlanmamıştım. Olaylar ve karakterler basit gelmişti bana :D Ama bu kitapta her şey daha iyiydi, diyaloglar daha eğlenceliydi, tüm sahneleri çok sevdim. Tek sorun labirent sahnesinin abartıldığı kadar iyi çıkmaması :D Devamında lütfeeeen bozmasıın -,-
In BLACK NIGHT we get to spend more time with J.B, Madeline's boss and Nathaniel, Madeline's fiannce. I have to say that I love J.B. and just cannot get enough of him. We learn some new things about J.B, like who her really is. And I am really looking forward to m ...more
The Madeline Black series employs a blend of two great, common urban fantasy tropes: the “big reveal” (where a mundane character discovers magic exists) and an open world where magic is commonly accepted. The mix of these two story-lines creates a chemistry that adds new zest to familiar concepts, an energy that I thoroughly enjoy.
In BLACK WINGS, Maddie is an Agent of Death, living and working with people who use m ...more
To think Maddy used to think her life was complicated and unfair when she only had her Agent of Death duties to deal with. Now that she's learned about her heritage and the constant power struggle between the fallen angels, shes a little tired of always being a target, especially from her own family members. Yet she still manages to scrape by. At least that is until the two people she cares the most about go missing, Gabriel and her gargoyle ...more
The beginning lagged in my opinion that took a while for the plot to finally pick up. Throughout the entire novel, there was one question o ...more
Maddy’s job is much less prominent in the story this time around, and there are no scenes from ancient time ...more
In reviewing Christina Henry’s Black Night I really wish that I’d taken the time to also read the first ...more

Maddy is getting used to the fact that she no longer has a human heart but an angel’s heart stone after dying briefly at the hands of Ramuell. Ramuell may be gone, but he is far from forgotten. ...more

Usually the woman is on the side of Right and Good. Maddy isn't on the side of light, though - her grandpa is Lucifer. Last book, Daddy Azazel gave her Gabriel, a really hot bodyguard and a really boring fiancé - and she has v ...more
Only because I don't like Gabriel very much .I don't like it when the women keeps rescuing her man just as I don't like it when the man keeps rescuing his woman
I like them both strong thank you very much and Gabriel is such a wuss that I find myself saying ugh every time I read his name and that is not a good sign in a book.
Other than that it was a little bit predictable but enjoyable all the same .a good read overall.
To be pe ...more
