My Review: The first installment in the Knight Angels series, Book of Love, fixated me as though I was under a spell. The follow-up, Book of Revenge awakened my admiration for Abra's delightful writing. Its visual storytelling quality and distinguished characters took me through the stages of a well-executed sequel. Before I start explaining the plot, nothing in this review spoils Book of Love, so if you are interested in reading the Knight Angels series, the twists and turns will come as a surprise. Continued in numerous narratives, I was once again engulfed in the lives of Max, Jane, Emily and Wes. Max and Jane's electrifying bond chilled my being with goose bumps and fear. Emily, first known as a rebel, had grown into an individual she was meant to be. Wes's unexpected power was clearly defined and its animalistic origin was brought to light. Finally, Greg, Max's evil angel brother, took a backseat while new creatures were welcomed into the mix.
Jake, an undercover vampire, contributed a new version of this species. His warm blooded skin and lack of immortality went against the norm, creating a sense of excitement. Another past enemy of Max's, Avery, took the villain role this time around. Her vengeful demeanor and dark attributes made me dislike her off the bat. The back story behind her attitude was stimulating but, also explained the reasoning behind her actions. The element I was most impressed with was the magically delicious world of Winter Wood. Abra's unique take on a pixie populated land was fun yet indicated the stem of all these unknown character abilities. The ending left me overwhelmed with questions and a cliffhanger that made me wish I had the third book in my hands! Overall, this installment was even better than the first. The maturity and growth in Abra's style showcased that she is a force to be reckon with. I look forward to experiencing the mysterious flow into the third book, hopefully coming soon!
