Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Kellie Shoemaker
One hundred years have passed since Alleluia and Caleb discovered the secret about Jovah, the god who watches over Samaria, and a new archangel is now in charge of the country. Archangel Bael has no patience for the Jacobites, a band of renegades who believe that Jovah is a spaceship programmed to respond to the petitions of the angels. According to legend, the Alleluia Files possess the proof the Jacobites need to defend themselves, but they have no idea where or even what the files are. When an angel named Jared crosses paths with Tamar, a Jacobite, the two fall in love. Jared helps Tamar's group search for the files, knowing the risks and dangers associated with betraying his own beliefs. When the first two books are as good as Archangel (Ace, 1996) and Jovah's Angel (Ace, 1997), the third in a series has a tough act to follow. Fortunately, The Alleluia Files is every bit as intriguing and satisfying as its predecessors. Shinn poses some difficult questions about religion and faith that are not easily answered in their world-or ours. The plot may not be as compelling as the first two titles, but the romance is strong and the tension builds with a momentum to rival any soap opera. This title is a must for any library owning the first two and an excuse to get the others if you have not already done so. VOYA Codes: 4Q 3P J S (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses, Will appeal with pushing, Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9 and Senior High-defined as grades 10 to 12).

Although I accidentaly read the trilogy backwards, I still throughly enjoyed 'The Alleluia Files' to the fullest extent. The way in which Sharon Shinn depicted each character had me in awe. I have read a few other titles that contained angels, but none can really compare to this book. I love it so much that I have found myself re-reading for the fourth or fith time!!!
