An Angel is he...

From the first moment he saw her, MIKAH BLAKE was seized by an inexplicable need to protect Vivienne Callahan, a fragile but fiery young woman who’s awakened a slumbering power within him. With his encouragement, Vivienne has begun to turn her life around, and things seem to be heading in the direction of a slow but certain happily-ever-after. But that happy ending is side tracked by a rising evil that is determined to destroy her.

When her dark past comes back to claim her, Mikah is caught in a whirlwind of events that lead him down a path he was born into but never understood. Until now.

Can Mikah save Vivienne? Will his love be enough? Will he be able to control his angelic powers and use them to protect his newfound love?

My Review:

This novel is actually more emotionally packed than the first of the series. Derrick tackles difficult subjects head on to create a shocking tale you won’t be able to put down even for a second. The dark undertones that Derrick works into her descriptions add a sense of urgency to this novel. She paints a dark world for her characters to live in, but also shows the cracks where light sets through.

Even though we got to know the main characters quite well in the first novel of this series, we get to know them much more intimately in this one. It’s all in the little details with this novel. You also get to know some of the supporting characters much better. They become more like family than storybook characters.

I love the mix of reality, history, and mythology that Derrick has worked together into this brilliant novel. My last thoughts? GAAAHHH!!! I need more now! I can’t wait for the next instalment in this brilliant series.
