It's been three thousand years since the fall of Azzaziel and the rebirth of evil; three thousand years since the Sentinal Order, an elite group of warrior angels, returned to Celestium. Their job-rid Earth of the dark creatures, the UnHoly. And with luck, end Azza's rule. As if casting out demons isn't hard enough, five-hundred-year-old Nesy has to masquerade as a teenage girl to do it. Nesy is the best of the Sentinals. She never makes mistakes, never hesitates, never gets emotionally involved. Until she meets Aydan. He is evil incarnate; a fallen angel that feeds off the souls of others. Everything Nesy is supposed to hate. But she can't, because he's also the love of her former life as a human girl-a life that ended too soon, tying her to emotions she was never supposed to feel. Now Nesy must choose between doing her duty-damning Aydan to the fiery depths of hell-or saving him, and condemning herself. And her choice may cost her, and Celestium, far more than anyone realizes. How much will she sacrifice for love?
My Thoughts on Lacrimosa:
I really have such mixed emotions about this one.
So much hype about Lacrimosa and it didn't really float my boat all that much. Swayed it a little bit but no raging rapids threatened to turn it over. *sigh* I saw the the author was giving away copies for honest reviews and of course I jumped at the chance to read it hoping it would be everything everyone said it was but no. It was wayyy too predictable for my liking. From just reading the first chapter I felt like I had already read it before.
To me Nesy seemed like a newly minted angel who had no prior experience in what it mean to be a sentinel. From the synopsis I expected her to be this awesome angel who was just Unholy killing machine but no I have some dear in the headlights type of bambi. That is not the type of heroine I'd recommend to others. I wasn't even halfway through when I seriously considered just rating it DNF but alas I very much dislike not finishing a book so I trudged on and to say I fell asleep on this book more than once is an understatement! Like I said it was much too predictable which would explain my falling asleep on it.
Overall not my type of book so I'd really wouldn't say yes read now would I say no don't read it. This is one of those books that you have to make your mind whether to read or not.
I've Rated Lacrimosa: (2/5)
