Aydan and Zane...where to begin. This is a tangled story of love and loss, sacrifice and revenge, good and evil. I have loved watching the development of Aydan, Nessa, Zane and Cass. And the new characters - well, I just love them too! All I can promise is that this is a story that will keep you wondering, hanging on edge of your seat until the bitter end. Some answers will be given, some relationships revealed. But it wouldn't be one of my stories without something unexpected. Just saying!

I hop
Seriously!! There are no words to begin to describe how I am feeling right now, after finishing this AMAZING book. I think I will take the opportunity to thank the brilliant and wonderful Christine Fonseca for allowing me to read this mind blowing sequel before everyone else. I am honoured more than you know and am truly thankful and grateful for being given the opportunity. Let me tell you, I am completely in awe, totally floored and in love with the words you write. Words, which breathe life i ...more

I would like to thank my friend and the author Christine Fonseca for trusting me with a rough draft/ARC of this BEAUTIFULLY AMAZING book to read and give an honest review. I am honored and humbled to have been trusted to read this masterpiece of literature. And I was not in the least bit disappointed with it, as I knew would be the case. It took me a while to pull my thoughts together to be able to write this review because I just did not know how to coherently put my words on paper! Yes, this b ...more

I finished this book a while ago, and have been digesting the story and what to write in a review. I'm not as good as some on this site with reviews and why I did or didn't like a book, but here goes!

First off, I would read anything Christine writes, even if it were a page in the phonebook. Her writing draws you in, makes you feel what her characters are, and lets you experience the richly defined world they live in as if it were your own.

Some of the following may be spoilery so I will hide it j

Oh how I had dreamed about this day. The day that this beautiful book would end up in my
hands and I would get to page through it's glorious story. You want to know something? Despite
my self made hype and the excruciating amount of time I had to wait after reading Lacrimosa, this
book was every bit worth the wait. In fact I knew 4 pages in just how worth it, it was! Yeah I am
talking that good and then some. Although I hated the wait the end result was worth it and Christine has outdone herself

3.5 Stars

'Libera Me' is the second book in the Requiem series, which follows Aydan, Zane, and Nessa while they try to overcome their pasts to figure out Nessa's true identity. This is a highly interesting series that mixes the lines of good and evil for the sake of true love. It's full of great paranormal beings, namely angels and demons, and their relationship with each other and with the human race. The plot is intriguing and brings new aspects to the young adult paranormal genre. I liked the

I think it's about time I wrote a review for this. Thank you Christine Fonseca for giving me a digital copy for review. I finished reading this during the time when I first got a job so I didn't have time to write the review. Now I do. Heh.

Despite giving this 4 stars, I was somewhat disappointed with how things ended. Contradicting? I know. I still love how it was written, so much emotion and sadness and #feels. I didn't like Vanessa. I was slightly irrit

First and foremost, thank you Christine for providing a copy of this review. Secondly, thank you Christine for these characters and this world. Libera Me was exactly what I expected. Brilliant. How could it not be, I mean this is Aydan and Zane we're talking about. I loved the alternating viewpoints from Zane and Aydan. The heartbreak each of them felt was written so painfully clear. Aydan's confusion over what could be going on and Zane's inability to past what he wants to believe. I just love ...more

An emotional ride that kept me guessing at every turn, dip, and upside down whirl. It isn't often that an author can blow me away with the first book and then out-do themselves with the second and impress me even more, but that's what Christine has done. This novel will have you gripping your e-reader until your fingers are white. Love, sacrifice, redemption, damnation, hot angels and demons, it has it all and so much more!
How do I tell her she is a trained assassin for Celestium, a Sentinal whose job it is to kill? How do I help her see that her memories are real? -Aydan

Libera Me book 2 of the Requiem Series by Christine Fonseca picks up a few months after we last saw Aydan in a high school in Puget Sound, Washington. Aydan is now in a relationship with a girl named Vanessa, Nessa for short, who has no memories of her life for the last 15 years as she was kidnapped when she was three. Or at least that is the stor

This time we read from Zane and Ayden's points of views, instead of Ayden's and Nesy's point of views.

Short summary:

My Review: 4 Stars, 1 Flame

You've heard the term, "The plot thickens"? Libera Me does that and then some! As you may recall, Aydan was heartbroken after Nesy's death however as this book begins, he believes he has perhaps found Nesy reborn as Nessa. One problem: She has no memories of Nesy, no memories of Aydan and no memories of their life together. Will they be able to work through all of this, their problems, old and new, and come out ahead?

The Good: First off, I love that the author has dedi

Where to begin…

Let’s start with the cover. I love this new cover. It’s much better than the previous one, but although I do love it, I think I would have preferred less Nesy and more Zane. That may be the “Team Zane” in me talking. But truth is, whether the book had gained a new cover or not, I would have still read it since I’m already interested in the story and yes, because Zane has a bigger part in it.

I'm in agony, alright? How could I NOT LIKE any Christine Fonseca books? She's born to write for meeee!!!

Okay, that probably crossed the line but heyyyy, this woman has a gift with words. I think if I to die and reincarnated seven times as an emperor penguin, Darth Vader, an orc, a Ferrero Rocher, a bottle of mineral water, Sheldon Cooper, and Batman love interest, I still can't write as good as Christine Fonseca.

Ok, I have to admit straight from the get go that I screwed this one up! Libera Me is a really interesting book but I was totally lost and couldn’t figure out why. I looked up the synopsis in Goodreads and noticed that this is actually book TWO of a series that has #0.5 Dies Irae, #1 Lacrimosa, and #1.5 Mea Culpa ALL prior to this one! And sadly I did not have the time to read those before this review. So, the review below is based on my not realizing and as I was researching this I did have the ...more

I won a competition and won the novella Dies Irae (#0.5) and Lacrimosa (#1) and I have continued on the Requiem series by reading the Mea Culpa (#1.5). So when I found the Book Tour for the next instalment in the series, Libera Me, I was so on board!! Christine has continued the amazing journey of Aydan and Zane in this book and of course she has left me wanting more!

I would like to thank Christine Fonseca for giving me this book to read and review. It was wonderful, and I am just so sorry I didn't finish it faster.

Libera Me was a roller coaster of emotions that left me anxious, and gasping, and happy, and then on the next page heart broken. It was a story I could not predict where it was going, and what would happen next. It had so many different twists and turns and surprises.

Forget all your preconceived ideas about angels and demons etc. This book is absolutely amazing! There is too much information to take in, in one reading. I am sure there is a lot I missed as I feasted on this book and I know I am going to have to read it again just to get the most out of this series.

There were some grammatical errors through the book (words repeated or wrong context words in sentences), but not enough to affect the story line at all. I had read the reviews that explained how am

The sum of who we are is encapsulated by our memories and experiences giving us a sense of identity, an anchor to this life, What if you had no memories to draw upon, you would become lost and vulnerable, helpless even and Nessa is no different. Gone is the warrior sentinel and a scared human girl has taken her place though Ayden fights to recover his Nesy and help her regain her memories. I kind of felt like a ping pong ball at times (terrible analogy I know) because sometimes I was team Ayden ...more

Mind twisting!

I enjoyed this book much more than the first book. There is so much speculation with who is who, and What! Who's side are they really on??Can anyone be trusted? Probably not. Nothing seems right, yet everything seems right at the same time.

Here we have the story of Ayden and Nesy, Or Nessa, (depending what you want to believe) trying to concur just about everything and then some to be together. Even when Nessa cant remember who she is... Or are they right, is this Nessa an imposte

Another winner. This book certainly had me guessing all the way up to the end. Like Zane and Aydan I could never quite settle on if it was truly Nesy or not. This story was told from Zane and Aydan's P.O.V and like Nesy herself, we are left in the dark for what is happening with her and inside her head. I must have been so wrapped up in Aydan and Nesy in the last book that I did not notice Zane's love for Nesy until it comes out in glazing obviousness in this book, just as Cass's feeling from Za ...more

I would like to thank the author for a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

I'm going to be honest, I had very high expectations for this book. I loved the first in the series, Lacrimosa, and expected to love this one even more. Alas, it feel short.

-I really loved Zane's point of view, and his story was quite tragic. Definitely one of the more enjoyable aspects of the novel.

-I also really liked the relationships between the characters like Nessa/Aydan, Nessa/Zane, and Zane/Cass/Caim

Hey everyone! :D

Once I finished reading Book One of The Requiem Series (Lacrimosa), I was at the edge of my seat.
The suspense of the last book was breathtaking and there were no stops, just breathless thrill.

When I first started reading it, I was kinda confused because there were a few elements such as the sacrifices that Zane made. I was so utterly clueless but I kept going on because I needed to know what's going to happen to Aydan now that Nesy...ooopps. No spoilers here! :D

This second book of the Requiem series was also an AMAZING read. It took off from the start and it puts a different twist on Angels and Demons. Aydan and Nesy now human. Nesy not knowing who she is with Aydan trying to help her get her memories back without much success. Zane (an Angel) doing everything he can to find Nesy with Cass (an Angel) worried for Zane.

This is a highly interesting series that wonderfully threads the goods and evils together. And not to forget the true love betweem Aydan and Nesy. This story brings out many many emotions; it's like testing my range of emotions.

Aydan and Nesy is like Romeo and Juliet, and the both of them deserve better. They need to have each other. They need a time of their own. Urgh, they need to be togeth

Wow! Not at all what I was expecting. Aydan and Nesy can't get a break even when they are mortal.

This book has 2 POV's - Aydan and Zane.

Aydan thinks all is well now that he hs found his "Nesy" but Zane wants to make sure that this girl is really the love of both angel's lives.

Nessa just wants to remember and no one can be trusted or is who they seem to be.

The ending - well it's a big cliffhanger.

Zane! I did think he always was overprotective of Nesy, how he was angry even at matters need not to be concerned of just a friend. I'd like to see how he handles expressing this hidden desire for Nesy. I like reading a love story shared by three people and I don't know why but I always root for the the third wheel. I guess I feel sorry for them for not having the thing they want most. Anyway, I think Libera Me will be a story full of emotions such as desire, love, acceptance, pain, and hope.
