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.
Utterly stunning, will tear you up inside, have you weeping, dystopian sensation.
You may remember me spamming you with my week long cover reveal for Angel Of Shadow last month. I’m so excited to share this review with you guys! You should all know by now that I loved Wormwood and D.H herself, so I was ecstatic to review the sequel Angel Of Shadow for her.
I want to start by saying (once again) how so in love I am with the cover! I adored it the minute I saw it and congratulate D.H on how well it turned out.
Wormwood was definitely a roller coaster of a read, Angel Of Shadow is on another level! The moment you were settled and thought all was well, another crisis would occur and throw everyone into battle mode. It was truly exhausting all of my emotions, in all the best possible ways I may add. D.H really knows how to stick the knife in and have you sobbing into the book!
The general atmosphere was really heightened compared to Wormwood. I felt like danger was around every corner and prayed for my poor Kali and Tiamat!
Kali grew from strength to strength throughout the book, daring to challenge her enemies and giving as good as she got, she really is bad ass! I love her determination and her unwillingness to give up the fight. Her moments of intense fury were by far my favourite thing about her and were fuelled by her need and love for Tiamat.
Tiamat will forever be one of my favourite male characters. He loves deeply and is incredibly loyal. He feels more than most of the Nephilim and risks his life for others. He puts himself through so much guilt and grief for actions that he can’t control. Even those who have become his enemies, he still cares for and regards them as his brothers. He is a true angel and will forever protect Kali, no matter what the cost.
I enjoyed the small bursts of humour through the book. The Nephilim’s jokes with each other and Kali, it relieved some of the tension from previous scenes and nursed some of the wounds in my heart.
I loved the scenes between Kali and Tiamat. It was slightly different to Wormwood, where Tiamat stayed away to keep Kali safe, the roles were kind of reversed this time. But it was nice to have them together after everything and it was really lovely to see, thank you for catering to my gushy love scene needs Danielle! ☺
I was utterly shocked to find my name in the acknowledgements of this book! I cried many tears when I saw it and cannot thank D.H enough for her words. I’m so happy to have had such an influence and will continue to support her in whatever she does. You truly are amazing Danielle! ❤
