What the Critics Say

"Shinn smoothly blends the romantic sensibility of yesteryear with the feminism of today, all in a richly textured landscape." (Publishers Weekly)

"A fascinating world built upon a complex system of technology and faith." (Library Journal)

"Shinn's new novel of Samaria, where angels and humans cohabit, is set in the time of rebuilding after the chaos of former archangel Raphael's fall and is told through the intertwining stories of the mortals Elizabeth and Rebekah and the angel Obadiah. Elizabeth, forced by circumstances to be a servant in her cousin's house, leaves abruptly for the new community of Cedar Hills, where she hopes to take an angel lover. Rebekah, a young Jansai woman, is dissatisfied with her life but sees no alternatives to it. Obadiah is sent by Gabriel to live in Cedar Hills and negotiate with the Jansai over issues surrounding the now-forbidden enslavement of the Elori tribes....a solid read." (Booklist)

    "Read as book 2"

    Though the 5th book in the Samaria saga, I got it as my second as this is the sequel to Archangel. I suggest you do so. More of a romance than a fantasy novel but still well written.

    "Entertainingly different slant on angels"

    Though I had not read the previous 4 books in this series, the story was well put together and wholly engaging on its own merits. Sharon Shinn put together a coherent world with very nicely developed characters. I'm so impressed that I'm going to start at the beginning of the series. Maybe by the time I'm done with the first 4 books, the 6th in the series will be written. I recommend this book as good story telling.

    "Enjoyable and a fun listen!"

    This is a good addition to the series. Not only did I enjoy the love story but I really was drawn to the narrating for the lead female. It put a smile on my face and made my day. I couldn't wait to hear her again. This is more of a romance than fantasy however it is worth the read. I wonder if we will hear from these characters in the next book in the series.
