D.H. Nevins hurtles you into a world of half-angels, demons and tormented love in this driving, dystopian sequel to Wormwood.

Half-angels, known as Nephilim, have all but destroyed the surface of the Earth. Yet for Kali Michaels, her life is now much more complicated than simply surviving. Grappling with her own powerful identity, she worries her connection to the world of Shadows could destroy those around her. And what if she hurts Tiamat Wormwood, the Nephilim outcast who has given everything to save her? Tiamat and Kali know they have no future—not when outside forces and Kali’s own power push both the humans and the Nephilim to the brink of extinction. As she fights to stop the inevitable, she is led to question who her real enemies are, and whether the ultimate threat may actually be herself.

Nevins, once again, weaves a magical, complex tale about the battle of good and evil and all the grey that lays in between.

Tiamat is a Nephilim, sent to wipe out humans from the earth until he met Kali. Kali, half human/half demon, emergence into Tiamat's life was catastrophic in a way, shifting his allegiances and existence. A war is mounting where angels stand against demons, demons against demons, Nephilim against Nephilim and then there is Kali and Tiamat who stand together but wanting to survive.

There is so much going on! Don’t think any single character won’t play an important role because you’ll be sorely mistaking! Take note of everything because Nevins has constructed a world that is mind blowingly detailed. You almost don’t want to take a breath because you might miss something critical that will come back to haunt you.

In the end, I find Nevins’s writing marvelously visual, creating a work of art that stays with the reader long after that experience is complete.

I received this copy of Angel of Shadow from D. H. Nevins. This is my honest and voluntary review.
