3 stars – I liked it

The Cadre has been called by the Luminata to discuss the disappearance of Lijuan, Archangel of China. Things at the Luminata compound are not what they seem though and Elena is determined to uncover its secrets. 

This book takes place two years after the previous book. The cascade effects have been quiet for those two years but it will not last. This book is interesting because it takes place in the Luminata compound in Morocco, which has never been discussed before. Elena is searching for her family while Raphael deals with the Cadre. While this book definitely felt like a filler book, I still liked it. It was interesting seeing a different aspect of life for angels and seeing Adohan open up more to Elena. 

While a lot doesn’t happen in this book, I still think it’s important because it discusses the future of Lijuan’s territory and we get more of Elena’s history. I actually am really interested in learning more about her grandparents. The other main focus of this book is on the romance between Raphael and Elena. It felt like it was a constant reinforcement of how strong their love was, which I don’t usually mind but this has played out in all of their books and it’s getting a little old. I want to see more progression on them handling the politics of what is going on at this point. 

Overall, this was a good book and I look forward to the next book which is about Viper. I am finding that while I am enjoying the progression of Elena and Raphael’s relationship, I prefer the books about all their friends finding love more.
