My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not as good as the first novel but not bad, either

This novella focuses on Izrafel, one of the characters we met in “Uriel’s Fall.” Since we last saw Izzy – as he’s known – at the end of that book, he’s fallen in love and is thinking about moving in with his boyfriend, though he has some reservations because he’s still not quite sure how to to explain his past and because he feels there’s something his boyfriend is hiding from him. We’re quickly thrown into the action – almost too quickly, in fact, and the the story takes off like a runner so eager to start her race that she jumps the gun a bit.

The biggest problem I had with the story is that like in the preceding novel, most of the dramatic tension comes from people simply not talking to each other. Even Ronnie, the protagonist from the first book – who was constantly frustrated because no one was telling her the full truth – can’t seem tho find a way too clue Izzy in as to what’s going on.

Still, in spite of these issues, it’s a fun, quick read and helps set up the conflict for next summer’s release of the second novel in the series.
