Review Abyss by Claire Delacroix

This is a novel that I've been impatiently waiting for it's Claire's 4th in her Eyes of The Republic series staring Angels who willingly give up their wings to help mankind. Abyss is the final episode and stars the fallen angel Tupperman who is most deserving of his own happy ending.

Stay tuned because I have an interview scheduled with Claire soon!

Overview :                                                                                         At the beginning of the 22nd century, humanity has survived a challenge to its survival and has commenced the task of rebuilding. An elite corps of fallen angels called the Watchful Host remains in the earthly realm to help-but someone is hunting them.Once the angel Turiel, Tupperman chose to remain in this realm after his mission was completed in order to aid the Watchful Host.

My Review

The world has gone through cataclysmic changes since Tupperman voluntarily gave up his wings to aid mankind. He and his fallen angel brethren have sacrificed much to save the humans and some have received blessings in return.
Four years ago when society came out of the darkness, Tupperman once again chose to stay on earth to help the progress of this new world order and convinced many more to shed their wings to help.
Now someone is killing off the angels he persuaded to stay and he sits on a train bound for New Mexico a fugitive for those crimes journeying to what maybe his last mission when an intriguing woman sits down next to him with a proposition.
Kara’s mission to see the Oracle about fulfilling her people’s prophecy has failed, she’s been literally tossed out on her bottom by the angels who refused to grant her an audience. So she’s boarded the train back home to New Mexico a failure in one mission but as she sits next to a handsome man with the purest green eyes she realizes she may just be able to fulfill another.

Clair Delacroix’s finale to her urban fantasy romance series is fantastic, she’ll take readers down terrifying dark alleys, wide open spaces and fill the air with angelic voices with her always fluent, sometimes frightening and visual narrative. Her selfless hero and determined heroine are perfect for each other and are perfectly portrayed as they dodge bad guys and fall in love. She’ll catch readers up on her co-stars past happenings as she weaves the intricate web of her current Angel tale.
Novels are best read in order for maximum understanding and enjoyment.
Claire you’ve taken me to turret towers, dragons lairs, from the Middle Ages to the present and into the future and you can be sure that wherever you’re bound next my bags are packed. Brava!
