My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Tiffany Reisz is a tease and I love it. I say this because this book is so chock full of hooks I dare you to put it down for more than an hour at a time. And then the ending! Gah! The Angel focuses on the “underage” boy Michael who we first met in The Siren. In the beginning Reisz schools her reader as to the legalities of the age difference between Nora and Michael. Interesting. But beyond that there is a yearning so intense within Michael that you really only want him to be happy and fulfilled. And when it finally does happen you are able to take a deep breath and let this character become a fully fleshed out person in your mind who deserves his happiness whether he is 17 or 18 or 54. I was uncertain about the use of the reporter to bring out the story of who Soren really is, but in the end I think I yelled, “Of course!” when the big reveal came as to why these folks were so open to someone who seemed a snoopy stranger. All is all an excellent second installment to this series and I look forward to reading The Prince.
