Okay. There are more betrayals, secrets unearthed, and truths revealed, but apart from Damiel and Cadence growing closer, there seems to be no real rhyme or reason to the other characters. Every one of them has either been a betrayer or an throw away character. Take Cadences BFF Allegra, that short arc just popped up and was dealt with very quickly, and after it was resolved, there was no fallout from it. Done and dusted.
I might pick up book 3 at some stage, but read this for the plot, not the characters.
I enjoyed the book - the characters and the storyline are well done. The only thing that threw me off was the words Damiel used when he expressed his feelings, as it came across as quite stiff, and therefore fake. The way he spoke - kind of formal, kind of gushing- just didn’t feel right. Otherwise, I quite enjoyed the book. Looking forward to the next one.
