Rachel has found the Angel’s Ark, the most powerful repository of knowledge and power in the known universe. Now her enemies multiply as countless factions struggle to take it from her. She dares not let anyone possess such a weapon, but her opponents won’t hesitate to use those closest to her.
She has only one person left to rely on: the Gehennan mercenary, Knight, a former assassin of terrifying brutality. But before he can save Rachel, Knight must overcome the shadows of his own past.
Shadows of Angels. What can I say? Well, a lot, but unfortunately most of my commentary gives things away or involves strings of obscenities.
It should go without saying that whatever Matt Larkin writes, he’s going to write well. Really well. So well I’m a bit sick with jealousy. Shadows of Angels is no exception.
Rachel, Knight, Mac, Phoebe and Leah are back, with a vengeance. Now in control of the Angel ship “The Ark,” they’re on the run from … Well basically everyone. Add to that enemies they didn’t even know they had and allies that were being less than honest and you’ve got a recipe for …
It’s a recipe for awesome.
Especially when you take into consideration the fact that the Ark is this sentient ship and Rachel is a powerful empath. Crazy things happen, my friends, crazy things.
All our main characters grow and develop and (insert various other parenting/plant growing metaphors) and become this unique and awesome butterflies. And I, for one, cannot wait to spend two more books watching them.
While tapping on the glass.
Because I’m a dick like that.
The only thing I wished there was more of was Leah … Poor Leah. Oh well, maybe next time.
If you enjoy space operas, you need to give Larkin’s Sins of Angels series a spin. The series (and Shadows in particular) does not disappoint.
I received a free copy of this title from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
