Wings of silver. Wings of blue. Mortal heart. Broken dreams. Shatter. Shatter. Shatter. A sundering. A grave. I see the end. I see. . .
The world is in chaos as the power surge of the Cascade rises to a devastating crescendo. In furiously resisting its attempts to turn Elena into a vessel for Raphael’s power, Elena and her archangel are irrevocably changed. . .far beyond the prophecy of a cursed Ancient.
At the same time, violent and eerie events around the world threaten to wipe out entire populations. And in the Archangel Lijuan’s former territory, an unnatural fog weaves through the land, leaving only a bone-chilling silence in its wake. Soon it becomes clear that even the archangels are not immune to this deadly evil. This time, even the combined power of the Cadre may not be enough. . .
This war could end them all.
Archangel's War, perhaps the most anticipated book of the series to date, is an all-consuming tale steeped in love, violence, friendship, and the unknown. You won't be able to put it down!
After the events in Archangel's Prophecy, I was on pins and needles waiting to find out what happened to our beloved characters, Raphael and Elena. Talk about a killer cliff-hanger! *gasp* Archangel's War opens with Raphael and Elena exploding from the chrysalis that encompassed them. Weak, cautious, and forever changed. The state of the world that they have reawakened to is an uneasy mystery. How long has it been? Are their family and friends safe? Has Lijuan returned? Or has the Cascade destroyed it all?
... a moment stolen on the eve of a battle where all could be won... or lost.
You don't want to win. You just want me to fight you naked.
Archangel's War leads to a satisfying conclusion, no cliff-hanger this time, however... this is not the end. Raphael and Elena will always have a piece of each other inside of them, literally. Have we learned everything that means? The last pages whisper with foreshadowing, and I can only guess at what is to come for this powerful duo and the ones they love. If you have not started this extraordinarly unique and enthralling series, I urge you to do so right away. And if you've just fallen behind in the series, this is a great time to pick it back up as the wait between these last two books was torturous, and if anything, you'll be saved that pain now!
