Alisa Tangredi is my new favorite author. In this second installment of her 'Death's Order' series, I became emotionally invested immediately and lost myself in the story of Evlin and Hildie. Hildie is unwavering in her care for her little sister, Evlin, after they are brutally orphaned. They are completely devoted to each other and get by well enough for many years hiding in plain sight. Hildie always taught Evlin that someone would come looking for her some day, and that she must RUN! Neither ...more

Wholly original take on the Angel of Death, so to speak. Well thought-out and superbly executed, this book belies the very real potential of the City of Angel's own Alisa Tangredi. This is a writer to watch. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

I would love to see this book on the big screen. It completely captivated and entranced me, and the characters were fascinating and sympathetic. Truly refreshing. Don't wait until Halloween to read this dark contemporary fantasy. Di

An enjoyable and unique read. I picked this book up at Vrohman's Bookstore in Pasadena, thinking I'd like to check out a 'local author,' and was pleasantly surprised. Well done, Ms Tangredi!

I'm a bit torn about this book. I did like it overall, but there were a few things I wasn't that keen on.

The switching between present day and the past was interesting, but it did throw me a bit with the constant changes. I really liked the characters and the relationships in the book - but I think that Eugene and Evlin's relationship moved a bit too f

Alisa Tangredi, has a unique understanding of that which makes many of us "sleep with one eye open". With her words she strikes that cord within that lets us see that sometimes the worst monsters are not those that derive from supernatural forces but mankind itself. Her series entitled, "Death's Orders", does this very well, indeed.

This is Book II and it is set in the city of Angels, this seems a fitting setting for a story that will not only mesmerize you, but have you reconsidering

Although the worst thing in the world, it seems to me, would be to have to deliver your own sister into the world, there is something worse. That is what Hildie had to do for her sister Elvin. Not only that, she has to raise her by herself since shortly after the birth their mom dies.

Elvie is born with wings, real wings, which Hildie tries hard to hide and have removed. Unfortunately, since these appendages mysteriously grow back she soon abandons that tract. Deargh McGovern is also

A child was born and delivered by a sibling, following shortly after the mother passes away. This is not any child though, this is an angel. Taking place in the City of Angels these two girls were orphaned and left to fend for themselves emotionally. As Hilde looks after Elvie we learn that they are both being sought after by two men. The reason is very much different than the other. This book is very well written and is the second installment in The Death Order series. I have not read the first ...more

I really liked the switching back and forth from present and past. It might have confused some people but as it was a bit interesting I didn't have a problem with that. One thing I didn't really like was the relationship between Evlin and Eugene, I felt it should have been between Evlin and McGovern but that's just my personal opinion.
I liked everything expect I feel it could have been written a bit different; it al

This was a wonderful book, even with one of my pet peeves about books being part of the story, what I call "Time traveling" which is switching from past to present and back and forth, I don't like that in my books, but I was able to handle it in this book because it had such a strong story line, this allowed me to keep up with where the characters were at the moment. And all without making me want to give up on the book.
Very well written!
