Betrayal: The Divine, Book Two | [M. R. Forbes]

Betrayal: The Divine, Book Two

My name is Landon Hamilton. I died five years ago, except I didn’t get to rest in peace like most of the departed. Instead, I was tapped by Dante (yes, that Dante) in Purgatory to become his champion and save humankind from the rest of the Divine - you know, angels and demons and their mortal followers. Yeah, I saved the world; but my vampire almost-girlfriend, Rebecca, stabbed me in the back (literally); I was forced to kill my angel best-friend, Josette; I’ve got a snarky werewolf taking up residence in my soul; and to be honest, I’m getting tired of the whole damn thing.

Publisher's Summary

My name is Landon Hamilton.

I’m a ghost.

I died five years ago, except I didn’t get to rest in peace like most of the departed. Instead, I was tapped by Dante (yes, that Dante) in Purgatory to become his champion and save humankind from the rest of the Divine - you know, angels and demons and their mortal followers.

It seemed like a great deal at the time. I would answer my calling as a diuscrucis (a perfect balance of angel, demon, and human) by getting sent back to the mortal world, inheriting the "magic" to bend the universe to my will, and saving humanity from devastation.

Hindsight… it sucks.

Yeah, I saved the world; but my vampire almost-girlfriend, Rebecca, stabbed me in the back (literally); I was forced to kill my angel best-friend, Josette; I’ve got a snarky werewolf taking up residence in my soul; and to be honest, I’m getting tired of the whole damn thing.

I don’t eat, don’t sleep, and barely feel. I’ve become obsessed with the Demon Queen’s warning, and the only thing keeping me hanging onto any shred of my humanity is Josette’s daughter, Sarah.

Except…now she’s gone.

She was taken right out from under my nose, and I don’t know by who or for what purpose. What I do know is that I’ll do whatever it takes to get her back, and there isn’t an angel, demon, or god that can stop me.

It’s a good thing I’ve still got my anger.

Betrayal is the second book in the best-selling Divine series, a contemporary paranormal and urban fantasy set in New York City and Paris, France. It is suitable for adults both young and old.

    Story
    "A good follow-up to the previous book."

    This is another excellent novel in this series. If you liked the first book in the series this one definitely will not dissappoint you. The world is vibrant and the cosmology of the series is unique and keeps getting more interesting as the series moves forward.

    Heaven and hell continue to war, but the main character finds out there is another faction in play that has been manipulating events all along. The action is non-stop and the author writes a very tight novel. He can balance character development with action so one does not overpower the other.You really get a series of danger and loss that a lot of novels don't provide and feel that something truly bad can happen to any character at any time. That is a major improvement over some of the more Mary-Sue esque main characters in other series.

    The only negative, and why I gave the story 4 stars instead of 5 is that the main character is a lot more whiny in this novel and it gets irritating after a while. That isn't to say there isn't a reason, just that it drags the story down a bit. Once you get past that the story moves at a breakneck pace. The narrarator is excellent and does a great job with a wide variety of voices and accents. Each character is unique and not at all cartoony.

    The best part is that there are so many plot twists and turns in this novel. I was caught flat footed several times with surprises in this book. I read a ton of books and finding one that keeps you guessing without being obtuse or blaming everything on a charater you didn't or barely see is great (although that does happen once). I definitely recommend this one, it is well worth a credit.

    "Upping the ante in every way"

    This book is really fun. It takes the premise of the first book (being stuck between good and evil, keeping it balanced) and ups the ante. The stakes are higher, the action is more intense and quick paced and it even expands the cast of characters fairly significantly.

    The book takes place 5 years after the previous one. Even knowing that it takes a little to play catch up as many things have changed. The author, Forbes, does well to catch you up and the jump allows him to play with the story and change dynamics of the group, which wouldnt have been possible if the time jump wasnt there. It actually important to the story because of the development and change in one of the characters over that 5 years.

    It ends of a cliffhanger, but I feel this end point was much better than the previous one. It made sense as a point to end the book. certainly looking to pick up the next one soon.

    The narration is great, like the previous book. As is the sound production. The minor things that annoyed me last time are less prevalent - the main one was a laugh thing that was done. that wasnt there. maybe the characters didnt laugh as much as much, or maybe the narrator, hays, decided not to do it this time. Not sure. The expanded cast of characters is done well with each having their own accent/voice/style to tell them apart. One female sounded off - it was a character who is now a teen after the 5 year jump but still sounded young girly. But that was not a big issue in to me.

    Overall, certainly can recommend it.
