URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Blood and Feathers 2: Rebellion - Lou Morgan

Release Date: 04/07/13
Publisher:  Solaris

''What's the first thing you think of when I say 'angel'?'' asked Mallory. Alice shrugged. ''I don t know... guns?'' Alice isn't having the best of days: she got rained on, missed her bus, was late for work. When two angels arrive, claiming her life so far is a lie, it turns epic, grand-scale worse. The war between the angels and the Fallen is escalating; an age-old balance is tipping, and innocent civilians are getting caught in the cross-fire. the angels must act to restore the balance - or risk the Fallen taking control. Forever. Hunted by the Fallen and guided by Mallory - a disgraced angel with a drinking problem - alice will learn the truth about her own history... and why the angels want to send her to hell. What do the Fallen want from her? How does Mallory know so much about her past? What is it the angels are hiding and can she trust either side? Caught between the power plays of the angels and Lucifer himself, it isn t just hell's demons that Alice will have to defeat...


OK, I’m going to start this review out with a warning. This is Book Two of the Blood and Feathers series. Do not, I repeat DO NOT, read this if you haven’t read the original. Why? Well you’ll have missed not only one cracking book, but the development of characters that continue to grow within this, the second outing that will leave you not only demanding more but preparing to storm the bastions of Solaris’ offices in order to get more.

As with the original the story its action packed, the author knows how to twist the readers emotions and when you add solid politicking between factions into this really leaves you on a high. All round this is a series that really does put Lou on the map and if you’re looking for an urban fantasy angel series that will keep you glued then really get onto Lou’s wagon now.
