This trilogyThe Descendants Evolution of Angels Volume 2) by Nathan Wall I read the third one first and it was so good I bought this one and volume one. This trilogy is intriguing. It is a unique blend of mythology, religion, and technology.
Angels that seem to depend on technology instead of being supernatural. Humans that may be supernatural under the right conditions. This is an interesting reversal of religion and mythology.
This book has lots of action, mystery, technology that's advanced enough to seem like magic, murder, mayhem, angelic revolution, betrayal, loyalty, etc.
This book is very hard to put down before finishing it.

Linda has been murdered and she thinks her boyfriend 1. DEAD(ish) 2. (technically) DEAD 3. DEAD (as a doorpost) 4. (imminently) DEAD 5. DEAD (and hellbent)
Linda has been murdered and she thinks her boyfriend did it.
Follow the humorous adventures of Linda as she tries to find her body, solve the mystery of who is sending death threats to her friend, helps someone find why he's dead, enjoys foot massages from a hot angel boy and minimally covers her ghost body when her nudity bothers her Earthly friends (when she lets them see her at all).
On some of these adventures she is helped by the faithful detective, Trent, she hires to help find her body.
These books are one hilarious romp from Earth to Heaven to Earth to Heaven to Hell to Earth and to Heaven, not necessarily in that order.
Heads Up: These books contain strong language, sexual situations, sexual language, nudity, full frontal nudity (male and female), mild violence, vengeful dead women, one really hot blonde ghost named Linda and lots of humor.
There is also an arrogant, holier than thou angel. But, what the hell, you'll meet her for yourself, in Heaven.
Recommended for all adults.

The plot is good. The writing, however, needs a lot of work.
The character development is not very good. The characters are two-dimensional caracatures of what they should be.
The main character lived in a human hell from the age of 8 years until the story starts when she is 23. Yet she holds ideals of honor and self sacrifice that are inconsistent with her previous life. She is also extremely naïve. Innocence of this type is unbelievable in someone with her background.
This could have been a very good story but the writing falls far short of, not only what it could be, but what it should be.
I got this ebook free from Amazon. It's worth it for that price.
I can recommend this only to people that can manage to enjoy stories with unbelievable characters....more
The characters were three dimensional which made them seem real, except that some of themI like the plot.
I got this book through Goodreads giveaways.
The characters were three dimensional which made them seem real, except that some of them had contradictory personalities. The main guy seemed very naive and slow but he is the man that created the quantum brains.
His teenage neice was apparently smarter than he was.
The writing was stiff, there were too many times that titles, first names and last names were all used together when a pronoun (he, she, it) or a first name or last name would have sufficed, and would have been more realistic.
Take the stiffness out of the characters conversations and the writing, also. Make the progression of the story flow better and make people and androids that are supposed to be smart, smart.
More maturity in the writing is needed.
I have not read the first three books. This one is written well enough to provide enough background information to make it pretty easy to understand. It stands on its own very well.
Calvin Cross is sent to find a rogue battleship and arrest or kill Asari Raidan, former Captain of the ISS Phoenix and fugitive from “justice”.
He findCalvin Cross is sent to find a rogue battleship and arrest or kill Asari Raidan, former Captain of the ISS Phoenix and fugitive from “justice”.
He finds himself saddled with Commander Summers Presley, former XO of the Phoenix, as his XO. There is more than a little friction between them.
A Lieutenant Commander in Intel Wing, Cross is not stranger to investigations. His research into Raidans' actions and motives gains him knowledge that makes him doubt Raidans' guilt and puts him and his crew in danger. And that's just the beginning.
Will the Empire survive? Who are the good guys? Bad guys? I don't know yet, I've only read four of the six book series but I am definitely going to read the rest.
Outstanding writing. Plenty of action, emotional interaction, conspiracies, organized criminal families, other shady and dangerous people, aliens, etc.
Mr. Sanders writes about people, and other characters, that seem to be real.

The writing has reverted to the quality of the first book of the trilogy, it is still in need of some better proofreading and editing. It is still good enough to keep me interested.
The story was good enough, and the writing style interesting enough, to keep me interested. I think reading this trilogy worthwhile. But I think the ending is unbelievable and needs some explanation. Maybe in another series set in the same universe?
Based on the story and the writing style I would have given five stars. Improve the writing and future books may rate that....more

Good story. I didn't understand Waverly's obsessive aversion to guns considering the violent world she lived in.
I'm normally not big on zombies but they seem to fit in here.
I recommend this.
