Goodreads Synopsis:
Some sacrifices should never be made—even for love.

Mikayel lives by one rule—obey the orders of the angelic Council at all costs. That is, until he and his friends, Azza and Demi, are sent to Earth. Assigned as Watchers while they await their decision of which angelic order to serve, the three assume the bodies of teenagers and experience life as human.

The sensations are overwhelming as the angels experience a host of human emotions—rage, terror, love—and come ever closer to breaking one of the unbreakable rules—never fall in love.

But being human isn’t the only problem facing the three angels. Unbeknownst to the Council, demonic activity is on the rise, threatening to break a tenuous peace that has existed for a millennia; a peace Azza seems bent on destroying.

Caught in a struggle for power with unseen demonic forces and Azza, and fighting against his rising emotional attachment to Demi, Mikayel must now decide how much he is willing to sacrifice for his new found love—a decision that could reignite an ancient war and will threaten the only thing that matters to the angels, the survival of humanity.
My Thoughts on Dies Irae:
I have not yet read any other book by this author so please bear with me.

I was very intrigued by this book mainly because the first in this series, Lacrimosa was just coming out and I had read so many good things by it. It's a good  lesson on their history. That being said I definitely sympathized with Mikayel and Demi. Love as strong as that is impossible to ignore let alone give up!

Really enjoyed it and am excited to read the rest in the series!
I've Rated Dies Irae (4/5)
