{Review} Lacrimosa - Christine Fonseca

Lacrimosa by Christine Fonseca

Series: Requiem #1
Release Date: 03/21/2012
Publisher: Compass Press

Amazon / B&N / Kobo
It's been three thousand years since the fall of Azzaziel and the rebirth of evil; three thousand years since the Sentinal Order, an elite group of warrior angels, returned to Celestium. Their job-rid Earth of the dark creatures, the UnHoly. And with luck, end Azza's rule. As if casting out demons isn't hard enough, five-hundred-year-old Nesy has to masquerade as a teenage girl to do it. Nesy is the best of the Sentinals. She never makes mistakes, never hesitates, never gets emotionally involved. Until she meets Aydan. He is evil incarnate; a fallen angel that feeds off the souls of others. Everything Nesy is supposed to hate. But she can't, because he's also the love of her former life as a human girl-a life that ended too soon, tying her to emotions she was never supposed to feel. Now Nesy must choose between doing her duty-damning Aydan to the fiery depths of hell-or saving him, and condemning herself. And her choice may cost her, and Celestium, far more than anyone realizes. How much will she sacrifice for love?

Thank you to Christine Fonseca!

This one was kind of a disappointment. I was really looking forward to reading this one and hoping to find a kick-ass angel story. But nope.

From the start, we meet Nesy, who is a Sentinel in a human body. Her mission is to banish Aydan, Azzaziel's apprentice. She, of course, failed her mission in chapter 1. She meets Aydan, who is someone from her past. They were soul mates so Nesy still has feelings for him.

I found this romance thing between Nesy and Aydan kind of tiring. I had half the mind to just stop reading this book. I mean, Nesy wouldn't banish Aydan because she loves him. But then Aydan is trying to get himself killed because he doesn't want to hurt Nesy. This whole book just based around that. And it dragged on and on. It's kind of frustrating, you know?

Overall, it is still an angel book. If you love any sort of Nephilim/angel/fallen angel things, be sure to check out this one :) This one is too love/angst-y for me, I'm afraid.
