Predictable, page skipper. I just didn't enjoy this ho hum fallen angel, demon tale.
I was surprised by the reviews of the two members that weren't that thrilled with this book. I was actually almost prepared to skip it. I liked the book a lot. I will agree that it was not as good as MY IMMORTAL but it was a good read all the same. There was a snipit from hernext paranormal romance TAKEN in the back of the book. I am looking forward to that one!
Second in McCarthy's "Seven Deadly Sins" series. This tells the story of Gabriel, former angel now demon, who is trying to figure out whether or not he killed his mistress 150 years ago. He meets Sara Michaels who is investigating her the murder of her own mother- who died the same way as Gabriel's mistress. McCarthy's writing gets better and better in each. Though I am not a huge fan of the paranormal, she really delves into the emotions of these oh-so-flawed characters which affords us a much juicier story.
I had very high hopes for this novel but unfortunately this novel fell a little flat. Basically the story is a supernatural who-done-it. The falled angel Gabriel covertly enlist the help of Sara Michaels, a forensic pathologist whose own mother was murdered in the same way Gabriel's mistress had been 150 years ago. Although the plot was interesting and kept me turning the pages I kept wishing the romance between Sara and Gabriel would be brought to the fore front of the book. Instead it seemed to take a distant second or third to the murder mystery and their own battles with addiction and fear. Not as good as the first book in this series, 'My Immortal' but still worth a read.
A decent read, but not one of McCarthy's best.
