Overview

Angel-Seeker (Samaria Series #5) by Sharon Shinn

The award-winning author returns to Samaria in this richly romantic tale that begins where Archangel left off. In that time, the women who craved the attention of angels were known as angel-seekers, a term used with awe by some—and scorn by others.

I am extremely sad that I have finished the final book in the Samaria series. These books have captivated me with the wildly imaginative setting, characters, and plot. Sharon Shinn is truly a wonderful author with a great way with words and relationships. The women in this novel are strong and the men in this novel are protective. I'm going to be rereading Archangel and the rest of the Samaria novels once again to immerse myself in this amazing world Shinn has created.

I discovered this author via another book, actually an anthology where the story was called 'Fallen Angel', i loved it so much and was delighted to know that there was more ! I went on to read the others of the series and i love them ! Samaria is the place for me , if only it existed ! Angel seeker is wonderful, i loved that it was set in the period of Rachel and Gabriel , please Sharon keep writing , we love these characters !

An absolutely stunning book from Sharon Shinn. In a world where angels intercede with Jovah for the common people, women seek out angels in the hopes of producing an angelic offspring. Elizabeth travels to an angel hold with the same dream in mind. Rebekah, a Jansai daughter, was brought up to scorn angels and never been seen in public. After rescuing an angel in the desert she continues to meet with him in secret. These two women's lives will cross paths but in ways they never expected. Absolutely stunning and beautiful. I couldn't put this book down but never wanted it end. I haven't read the archangel trilogy but now I am going to have to. A rich tapestry of characters and scenes leads to an enormously entertaining and engrossing novel. Bravo.

This book addresses some of the less attractive qualities of the planet Samaria, including the repressive Jansai culture, the after-effects of Edori slavery, and the exploitation of young women hoping to bear angel children. As always, Shinn's characters are well-drawn and her lovers are well-matched. Elizabeth grows beautifully in confidence and self-worth. However, I find Rebekah's clinging to her Jansai life contrived: her life is so unremittingly unpleasant it's impossible to believe she would so stubbornly refuse to take any chance to escape it, much less with a gorgeous angel who plainly adores her.

Not the best book in the series, but still enjoyable. I recommend these books for people who don't normally like SF.
