It's been three
thousand years since the fall of Azzaziel and the rebirth of evil; three
thousand years since the Sentinal Order, an elite group of warrior
angels, returned to Celestium. Their job-rid Earth of the dark
creatures, the UnHoly. And with luck, end Azza's rule. As if casting out
demons isn't hard enough, five-hundred-year-old Nesy has to masquerade
as a teenage girl to do it. Nesy is the best of the Sentinals. She never
makes mistakes, never hesitates, never gets emotionally involved. Until
she meets Aydan. He is evil incarnate; a fallen angel that feeds off
the souls of others. Everything Nesy is supposed to hate. But she can't,
because he's also the love of her former life as a human girl-a life
that ended too soon, tying her to emotions she was never supposed to
feel. Now Nesy must choose between doing her duty-damning Aydan to the
fiery depths of hell-or saving him, and condemning herself. And her
choice may cost her, and Celestium, far more than anyone realizes. How
much will she sacrifice for love?
Christine Fonseca has a way with words. I learned that when I read Transcend [click the link to check this book out!].
So I wasn't surprised that I loved every poetic moment of Lacrimosa. I
haven't been interested in reading angel and demon books for a while
because they all seem to be the same. This book is definitely not like
the others. There is something so different and fresh about this story.
was instantly in love with the story and completely invested in the
characters. Nesy and Aydan were a tangled mess of all consuming love and
hate. Every painful conflict that Nesy felt, I felt. Every time Nesy
and Aydan gave in to their feelings, my heart soared. The relationship
was a beautiful battle and I couldn't help but to hope that love would
conquer the duty that both Nesy and Aydan felt the need to carry out.
I quite liked the secondary characters as well. I'm glad I read Dies Irae
before so I had a much better understanding of Mikayel and Azza. I
especially liked Cass and I hope to get to know her better in future
I was beyond heartbroken at the end, but was very happy
for the small bit of hope I was offered. I can't wait to dive into the
second book and become lost in this world once again.
