Being a fallen angel used to be easy. A quiet life with the people she loves is all Sara ever asked for. Unfortunately, the apocalypse didn't get the message. After nearly losing everything, she's managed to put her life back together and start living what she hoped was happily ever after with her small family. Now she wants nothing more than to hide away and pretend the end of the world is a distant rumor. Her life has already been torn apart once. Doesn't she deserve a break? The apocalypse finds its way back to her doorstep when a letter arrives. Is it a friendly warning, a dire threat, or a simple reminder that she can't run away from what's to come? Sara refuses to take heed and pays dearly for her avoidance. With her family in danger and the preservation of free will hanging in the balance, she finds herself with no other choice. Sara must follow the path forged for her, a path that may take away everything she holds dear and leave her in pieces at the end. She's caught between Heaven and Hell, and the last person she'd ever have considered trusting might just be her greatest ally.
Two Boundless Stars
I was provided a copy of Between Heaven and Hell in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed At Death's Door (Freefall Book 1) so much I was eagerly anticipating book 2. Book two picks up a year after book one Sara AKA Azrael The Angel of Death, Daniel and Danny are living a happy little life in Wisconsin. Azrael and her son are prophesied to be major players in the upcoming apocalypse. Sara's (Azrael) way of dealing with this is to ignore it! I was so frustrated with this book! She is the freaking Angel of Death yet she is so incredibly weak a needy! She is pretty much everything I hate in a female lead. She cried all the time! Book one I could forgive her her weaknesses because of the amnesia and thinking she was human. Book two! No your The Freaking Angel of Death! Time to put the big girl panties on! This story was very sad and under normal circumstances if I even felt remotely connected to the character I may have got emotional. I don't, so I didn't. I was disappointed with this book as a whole. I kept thinking any minute now she is going to pull it together and go kick some ass!
I'm really hoping book three is better. But at this point I'm not sure if I even want to go there again.
