They’re both desperate to find a doctor who can reverse the twisted changes inflicted by the angels on Raffe and Penryn’s sister. As they set off in search of answers, a startling revelation about Raffe’s past unleashes dark forces that threaten them all.
When the angels release an apocalyptic nightmare onto humans, both sides are set on a path toward war. As unlikely alliances form and strategies shift, who will emerge victorious? Forced to pick sides in the fight for control of the earthly realm, Raffe and Penryn must choose: Their own kind, or each other?
I’m the type of person who loves blood, gore, and explosions. The more the better. Or so I thought.
Years ago, I watched this movie in theatres. Battle: Los Angeles. It was AWESOME at first. Explosions! Death! People being blown into bits. Boom! Boom! Pow! Every other minute something exploded. It was great.
For about half an hour.
And then I just got SO bored. Like when was this going to end? There was too much action that it bored the hell out of me. I lost all attachment and enjoyment in the movie, and in the end, I just sat there for the remainder of the film, falling asleep as things were getting blasted into pieces on the screen in front of me. I just had enough.
I think that was what ended up happening to this book. I just got sick of it. There was nothing overtly wrong with it; the characters were fine. The romance wasn’t too much. It was just…all the action finally got to me; it was more or less a repetition of the first couple of books in a different form, and I wanted something more from this series that this book didn’t deliver.
