What happens when everything you’ve sacrificed for is lost? Aydan thought Nesy’s death would be the end of him, until he meets Nessa and his hope is restored. Could she be Nesy reborn? He is certain she must be. That is, until her lack of memories and incessant nightmares begin to erode his faith.
Zane is used to trusting his mind, his wisdom and his angelic senses. But these attributes are no help with Nessa. He has no way to be certain of her identity, no way to know the truth. That is, unless he listens to the one thing he has refused to acknowledge throughout his existence - his feelings for Nesy.
Blind to both angel and demon, Aydan and Zane must figure out the truth behind Nesy's identity before all is lost, Azza discovers the truth and the Beast is again unleashed.
The lines between good and evil have never been so blurred.

Oh how I had dreamed about this day. The day that this beautiful book would end up in my
hands and I would get to page through it's glorious story. You want to know something? Despite
my self made hype and the excruciating amount of time I had to wait after reading Lacrimosa, this
book was every bit worth the wait. In fact I knew 4 pages in just how worth it, it was! Yeah I am
talking that good and then some. Although I hated the wait the end result was worth it and Christine has outdone herself once again. I was blown away and completely entranced in this novel and the amount of detail and thought that was once again poured into its pages.
The plot truly thickens in this novel. It's like everything you think you know you don't and everything you don't know can happen at the turn of a page. Things are really changing and not all of it for the better. Starting this book was like walking into everything I had wanted, to start. Aydan has found the one he believes to be Nesy and they seem to be working to help her remember. But there is more at play than the two of them as Zane now means more than anyone knows. It was heart breaking at times watching what everyone had to go through, had to fight for and what the results were for each individual.
This novel isn't as much about Nesy as it is Aydan and Zane. This is a huge change of pace and on that did wonders for this book. I did expect more from Nesy's pov but it totally worked without it every step of the way. Gone is the strong, sure and determined Nesy now anyways. She is a shell of her former self now that her memories are gone. There were times when she broke through it seemed but for the most part she is no longer herself and is confused. Well confused or denying who she could be, who she really is. It was sad to see her so lost and broken because she is such a pillar in the story but Christine as done this in such a way that I still love Nesy and still want to reach out to her.
Aydan is still struggling to loose his past and his past mistakes but he has grown. Boy has he ever grown and is becoming stronger than I ever imagined. Not that he was ever weak but his new persistence and devotion to Nesy is endearing. Though they had something previously this time around he tries more. He doesn't just push his worth away and believe that they aren't meant to
be. In fact this time around he has to fight for her and their future together. The strength and
determination that he has discovered within himself when I comes to her is wonderful. He does
make some mistakes though and it costs more than I though it would.
My wonderful Zane is a large part of this novel. I love Christine for having him be such a large part of the story and I know she didn't do it for me but she knew th affection I felt or Zane. It only deepens in his instalment and I found frequently my heart going out to him. He has given up so much just to save someone that doesn't know just how deep his feelings run. What he has lost cost him and he battles his own demons now, fights through what everyone now calls his weakness. But isn't that what we do for the ones we care about? No matter the consequence Zane continues to disobey orders and fight for the truth he believes in. In this aspect Zane has grown so much an become a more imporant part of everything and I just fell further for him. His pain though pulled at my heart much stronger and more than once I felt my chest constrict. Zane is who I fell for and so much more now.
I was left breathless and shocked many time as I read this book. The last 40% of the book refused to let me do anything but read. The 60% before that had pulled me in and captured every free moment of time I had. This includes being pulled into the kitchen with me while I cooked and through a minor break down when I ran out of power and had to stop to charge. There is so much I want to write in his review but can not find the right words. Truth be told I am so blown away that I'm not sure any words, including the ones already written can do it justice.
This work of art is just more proof of Christine Fonsca's brilliant mind. The writing is beautiful, fluent and absolutely mesmerizing. Even those that are wary of Angel novels will most likely love this book because it is so much more than just an Angel story. This is a book about friends, truths and the fight that we have within ourselves when it comes to love. If you haven't started this series I suggest you do and if you have I can say that I honestly believe you will love this one just as
much if not more than Lacrimosa.
She may not believe me when I tell her of our lives together, may not remember being angelic. But I know who she really is. And it's definitely more than human.
I can still hear her tell me of Aydan's love for Nesy, a love I can understand but can never confess.
But I do.
Zanethios, this is not your fault. There is always evil. It grows, just as we grow. You cannot hold yourself to blame.
"Look" she says. "I know you want her to love you back. And I'm not saying that's a bad thing. But before you risk it all for her, shouldn't you make certain she wants this?"
Note: Page 185 (85%) gets an OMFG!!
