Zadekiel – Book 2 in the Path of Angels Series
I enjoyed the conflict which lives within Zade. The desire to do the right thing, even though he is forced into a role he did not want or expect. His brother’s absence hits him hard, but it is the guilt, which weighs heavily in his heart, that makes him question his loyalties. Their final conversation haunts his dreams, signifying his regret.
But Zade is an archangel, and he never backs down without a fight. He’s strong, and tough and fiercely protective. His sense of responsibility, and love for his brothers is one of my favourite things about him.
With Michael gone, the trio continue their mission, though they are clearly lost and falter more than once. They return to the streets night after night, determined to follow the path. I loved the humour, the brotherly affection, and the sense of camaraderie. Even when they disagree, there is a bond which shines through. Zade manages to hold them together, if only by the sheer force of his will!
Zaphyr is a complex woman who I instantly loved. She has a hard exterior, and finds it difficult to trust. This has a lot to do with her unique gift, something which makes her an outsider. When her path collides with Zade and his brothers, she is forced to re-examine everything she believes in. Her wit shines through, and it was fun watching her interact with Zade, Joe and Gabe. She is an atheist, which makes for an interesting dynamic and sparks some delightful tension within the group. Zaphyr challenges Zade in many ways, thought he isn’t daunted by her scepticism. He might not know how to deal with the emotions she evokes in him, but he refuses to give in.
Zadekiel ends on a cliff-hanger, one which makes you hungry for more. The writing flows and is full of expression, with delightful descriptions that bring the world to life and keep you on the edge of your seat.
Thanks for stopping by.
