I am so excited to be sharing my review for D H Nevins latest fabulous novel, Angel of Shadow, Book II of the Wormwood series. I loved the first book (see my review here).
I love this awesome cover, done by Carlos Quevedo, which definitely foreSHADOWS the story inside.
I loved the first book, Wormwood by D H Nevins, so I was very excited to get my hands on Angel of Shadow, and OMG…if was fabulous…unputdownable. It took D H Nevins five years to write it and it was worth the wait!
The world and characters captured me and I am so eager to get back into the story and find out what Kali will do. In her dystopian world, she has some difficult choices to make.
Her forbidden love for Tiamat…will it sway her decision?
Good and evil. Angels and demons. If you think you know angels…think again. These angels are not ones you want knocking on your door.
Tiamat is Nephilim. They were sent to wipe out humans from Earth in The Cleansing. But, when Tiamat met Kali, his world shifted. Can an angel disobey? Will he?
Kali is half human, half demon. Tiamat is half human, half angel.
When Kali is faced with death, her Shadow saves her, but at what cost? Is it a friend or foe? Can she control it, or will it control her?
Each character, no matter the size of their role, is a valuable addition to the story. Not all will survive and I was especially saddened by one Nephilim’s death in particular, but I do like that an author is not afraid to kill off a character if they feel it is necessary. Life is not always happy ever after, so why should a novel be?
Tension mounts and war approaches. Nephilim against Nephilim, demon against angel, where does Kali fit in? I am so happy that I have watched Supernatural, the TV show, because it allows me to understand and visualize the world that D H Nevins has created.
I am eagerly anticipating Book III, And After The Shadow, Light by D H Nevins, which will be published in the fall of 2018.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Angel of Shadow by D H Nevins.
You can read a second take on Angel of Shadow from Laura @ fuonlyknew.
D.H. Nevins hurtles you into a world of half-angels, demons and tormented love in this driving, dystopian sequel to Wormwood.
Half-angels, known as Nephilim, have all but destroyed the surface of the Earth. Yet for Kali Michaels, her life is now much more complicated than simply surviving. Grappling with her own powerful identity, she worries her connection to the world of Shadows could destroy those around her.
And what if she hurts Tiamat Wormwood, the Nephilim outcast who has given everything to save her? Tiamat and Kali know they have no future—not when outside forces and Kali’s own power push both the humans and the Nephilim to the brink of extinction.
As she fights to stop the inevitable, she is led to question who her real enemies are, and whether the ultimate threat may actually be herself.
Love this gorgeous cover.
I gave this 5 stars and you can see it HERE.
