Fall of Angels (Halfway Between #3)
by Kathryn Ann Kingsley
Note – Spoilers for Shadow of Angels and Blood of Angels are in this review.
What a ride, Kat! This book took a turn that I was NOT expecting, and it made me love it even more.
The final installment of the Halfway between series really starts off with a bang. Veil is now in the sadistic hands of Octavian, and he is determined to get what he wants. It’s up to Asmodeus, Mike, and the rest of the team to stop him and find Veil before it’s too late.
This book was much deeper than some of Kat’s previous novels. We still get the amazing character development and relationship building that we know and love from her, but this book’s philosophical and moral views are what really sets this one apart from the pack. The ending ripped my heart out. I really came to care about a lot of these characters. I would definitely recommend this series to any PR, dark romance, and UF lovers!
What I liked:
Veil shows such a different strength in this book. She gets beat down over and over but continues to be empathetic and make things right. Her relationship with Asmodeus grows in such a different and beautiful way.
Asmodeus… what can I even say. Gosh, he is such a devoted, saucy, bad boy that just gets to me every time. I’ve said it before, but his vulnerability is what makes him so layered and interesting and it definitely comes out even more in this book. We learn so much more about his past and gives us some real insight into who he is and his motivations.
I loved meeting the other angels and demons! I actually could have spent more time getting to know them. Maybe a sequel / follow up?! MIKE?!
I loved Asmodeus’s flashback scenes. I won’t lie – at first, I was a little hesitant because I selfishly didn’t want to see him with anyone else. As I kept reading though, wow. What a tragic and heartbreaking story. Through these scenes, the book really took a turn and gave a level of depth that was unexpected and that really made me feel.
What I didn’t like:
I wish that we would have had more scenes with Veil and Asmodeus outside of the “other side”.
It was a wonderful conclusion to a series. It was heartbreaking, philosophical, soulful, and hot as f***.
