They say some things must be broken before they can be fixed. But when Michaela hoped to cast doubt on the Aethere, she never thought things would fall apart like they did. Now the Aethere have turned their attention to the End of Days, and they won’t rest until they obtain the tools of Earth's final destruction: the Seven Seals.
The world is falling apart at the seams, and Michaela finds herself clutching the threads. She alone understands what will happen if the Aethere ever get the seals, and it’s the one thing she will fight to the death to prevent if she has to.
Even amidst the devastation on Earth, Michaela struggles to restore her faith in Gabriel. Together, they'll need to decide if their love is strong enough to erase the line she had fought so hard to draw between holy and fallen.
Michaela said she wanted a war, but when the End is looming, what will she fight for?
Meg’s first book, The Hunted One, was a book that knocked me of my feet. It was really well written, original, and the characters were awesome. It also had a cliff-hanger, a mean cliff-hanger! So frankly I was relieved when I got to read the sequel, because that cliff-hanger was bad!
In The Lost One, Meg pulled me in as she did with her first book. The story she crafted sucked me in at the first page, and the story held my attention right until the end. Where there was, once again, a mean cliff-hanger. I think my message to Meg included lots of shouty capital letters, asking her why she would do this to me, and begging her to tell me what would happen next. She did not cave. And now I have another LONG time to wait for the next, and last book, in the series. Which is going to be killing.
There was a great amount of character growth in the Hunted One, and boy was I glad to see the growth back in the Lost One! We get to know the characters even better, find that there’s even more depth to them, and root for them even more. I said so before, and I’ll say so again, that Meg writes great characters. Her stories, even though the plot is pretty darn awesome as well, are very character driven.
I love Meg’s writing! I love the originality and the beauty of her story and I can’t wait to read the next book. Another great read that I’d recommend to any lover of the Angel genre.
