This is the second book in the ‘The Angel Chronicles’ series, and kicks off where book 1 ‘Until Next Time’ left off.
**Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for book one ‘Until Next Time’.
It is now time for Emily and Matt’s second life down on earth. Once again they won’t know who the other is, and they won’t know that they are angels, they will have the same free will to make mistakes the way the other humans do.
This time Emily is a Russian girl called Anya who is travelling from Moscow to New York to start a new life. Along the way she meets a 10-year-old boy, who later becomes her responsibility.
Once in New York Emily/Anya must work out what her role is in this life, and she must also learn to recognise both Matt and Jason.
Who is Matt? Who is Jason? And what is Emily’s purpose in this new life?
This was an okay story I suppose, but I found it pretty dull.
Emily is once again thrust into a new life, without her memories. What her exactly purpose was in this life I’m not really sure, and having finished the book, I’m finding it difficult to care.
The storyline in this was okay I suppose, but I personally found it pretty dull. I felt like I was having to force myself to keep reading, and any excuse to put this down was utilised. I’m actually having a hard job even remembering what the main point of the story was, which obviously isn’t good. I think the story was mainly about Anya working out who her old friends were, but considering that she had no memories that’s a bit difficult.
The blurb for this book is also a shocker. I personally guessed at who I thought Matt was and Jason was in this new life, but it is not actually revealed until 78% of the way into the book. When I then read the blurb after finishing the book, Jason’s identity is revealed in the blurb! If that is not a spoiler, I don’t know what is!
Anyway, having finished this I’m kinda thinking that I totally wasted several hours of a sunny Saturday reading this, and I’m really wishing I’d read something else instead. I’m hoping that this is maybe just a bit of middle book syndrome, and that the final instalment will have some long awaited answers in, I certainly can’t bring myself to start reading book 3 right away though – I seriously need a break from this.
Overall; a disappointing second book in this series.
4.5 out of 10.
