Above a small hill lay a home.
And green men peer out under the dome.
Thirteen crisscrossing arches behold,
with angels singing must be told.
Cubes like teeth thus showed,
pierce one and the door shall glow.
Part the sea like Moses,

I am completely blown away by the imagination and detail Mary Ting put into The Blessed Knights. This series is so creative, the details she puts into each scene is phenomenal. You can see the scene play out before you in your mind, she's that vivid with her words. Eli and Lucia's romance just makes your heart swoon and break all at once with the situation they are facing. I love these characters and enjoyed being reunited once again. There was so many twists and turns, fast paced, has you on yo ...more

*I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

Picking up where The Chosen Knights left off, The Blessed Knights is an exciting addition to this fascinating series, a series that is best read in order to fully appreciate and understand.

As I said this one picks up where the last book ended and reading the review (and blurb) may spoil a few things for you, but I’ll do my best. In this book, Lucia, an Angel, and her friends and family and searching for and trying to rescue

Mary Ting has done it again with another wonderful story with the Angel Knights. This book will make you halt life just to be able to finish the story and know what happens next.

The adventure continnues as the knights, dubbed the blessed knights by Jack, make plans to rescue Eli fron Cyrus. Uncle Dovon has realised the enormity of Cyrus's setup and has enlisted the help of Micheal, the twin's father and one of the Devine Elders.

The reader is reintroduced to Mortem, first encountered in the first introductory novella.

I really enjoyed the second book to the series and i love the romance between Eli and Lucia, I hope it works out for them both. I just hope they can kill Cyrus and save the kids and their family from destruction. I am willing the vampires, angels, witches to win this fight for humanity.

The Blessed Knights is without a doubt a powerful and breathtaking continuation of this incredibly epic series! If you weren’t sure that this series would live up to its passionate intensity and emotional depth, then you are about to be blown away. Nothing in this story is done in half measures. When you dive deep into this wondrous adventure, you are immersed in every single human emotion and enveloped by things you will never be able to explain.

Wow!!! Just wow! The Blessed Knights by Mary Ting is the second book of the Angel Knights series and I could not set it down! The last book left us with a massive cliffhanger: Eli in the hands of Cyrus, stabbed with a piece of the true cross. The Blessed Knights picks up a week later in Eli’s POV. That’s right friends, alternate POVs from Lucia to Davin to Eli….LOVED

The Blessed Knights is the second book in The Angel Knights Series and you will need to read The Chosen Knights first, but fear not,you shall not regret it.

This is the 2nd book in this series and needs to be read in order.

“Cyrus is a Fallen who controls possessors that escaped the edelweiss trap from the Snow Queen,” he continued to explain and folded his wings too close. “When Cyrus killed me, and with angel blood, not just any angel blood, but your blood, the descendant of the original angel blood, I had been reborn.” Eli

If there are Angels, Demons and such in a book then I am totally in! When I first started this series I was very intrigued with the writing and storyline. Now? I am hooked. This is by far the best YA series I have ever read. I couldn't read this book fast enough. It held my attention from page one to the very end. The Blessed Knights includes brilliant writing regarding The Knights of Templar. I am fascinated by this history.

As we continue to follow Eli and Lucia's journey to defeat Cyrus things will always get complicated before they can get easy. Their journey not only will bring Michael Lucia's father into the group of brave knights aka the gang but will bring them to a whole new level of closeness. As always there will be smiles from Uncle Davin, and sorrow from Eli but most important this group will have you rooting for them.
