Review: Reaver by Larissa Ione



WARRIOR OF HEAVEN

Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels-and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell-he's agreed to go where no angel has ever gone before . . . to steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself.

ANGEL OF HELL

Harvester is one of the Fallen, a once-heroic angel who sacrificed her wings to work as an undercover agent in hell. But now her cover has been blown, and she's doomed to an eternity of agonizing torture. Even if Reaver can snatch her away from Satan's lair, even if they can fight their way out of the underworld's darkest depths, there is one thing Harvester can never escape-her new-found thirst for an angel's blood . . 


I haven't read all of the other books in this series, and I was worried that I would be lost, and that is exactly what happened. I could tell that some of the characters were clearly from previous books and I think the storyline would not have been so confusing if I had read the previous books in the series.

I think the main problem I have with this book is the complicated world. There are many species and terms that I haven't been able to figure out yet. I still don't understand the big battle that is suppose to happen every few hundred years and the full ramifications that come with it. I did find myself to be curious about some of the secondary characters though. I looked around a little on the authors website and found that most of the secondary characters have their own book.

For those of you who are fans of this series, you will love this book as much as the others, but be prepared for tears and anguish along the way. I wasn't completely thrilled with the way everything turned out.  I thought it could have been more completely and creatively resolved. I plan on starting this series from the beginning.
