Overview

National bestselling author Sharon Shinn returns to the compelling world of Samaria in an extraordinary novel of angels and mortals, music and mystery, science and faith...

More than a hundred years after the time of Rachel and Gabriel, Samaria is in deep turmoil. Charismatic Archangel Delilah has been injured and forced to give up her position, and she has been replaced by shy, uncertain Alleluia. What’s worse, ungovernable storms are sweeping across the country, and the god never seems to hear the angels’ pleas to abate the bad weather. Unless those prayers are offered by the new Archangel...

Yet another trilogy in which I like the second book better than the first. This one touches on what was only hinted at in the first book- that of technology as God- and how man's perception of God forms the world. I'm usually more of a "fallen" angel fan!- but I love the angels of this world!

I am rereading this book 10 years after I first read it, mainly because the 3rd in the series didn't exist back then and I wanted to refresh my memory.This book is better written than Archangel - the characters feel more real - like the author actually spent time writing them, rather than pulling them out of some romance novel outline.This novel is a great fantasy story with a very nice/surprising twist to it; the romance is more subtle than in Archangel and, as such, the story line is a bit more engaging for those who aren't so interested in romantic adventures.On a personal level, the twist disappointed me because I always hope for better things to be out there, but it's completely agreeable from the story point of view.

This is a wonderful second book in the world of Samaria. The world building is great here as you get some insight into the technical and scientific advancements that appear in the first book.

The second in the Samaria series turns more directly toward the SF aspect, as Sharon Shinn continues building this fascinating world. Her characters are as well drawn as ever, and are in fact easier people to like than in Archangel. A great next entry in the series.

Oct09:Now that was a solid book.Plot: Very solid. It was more about the characters, but the deep motivation was simple and to the point. It was a matter of faith and science and a blending of the two.Characters: Just great. The fallen Archangel was probably my favorite part. She was so dynamic and wonderful. The lead couple were above average as well.Style: Purely romantasized. A nice bit of faith exploration. Good world building. Really grabs me and makes me want to read it :)

Not a series where one book picks up right after the next, which is a bit disconcerting at first. However, as different as the story is from the first, it's just as well told, and just as hard to put down. Shinn is one of my favourite authors.

This is one of my favorite books. Second in the original Samaria trilogy, this novel is set 100 years in the future.Jovah doesn't hear all of the prayers of the angels. Alleluia is one of the few angels that Jovah still hears and she is named the new Archangel when Delilah, the old archangel, has an accident impairing her ability to fly.This books has many characters, all of them likable. It also shows the burgeoning of technology in Samaria, and the conflict that arises because of this. Much of the mystery of Jovah is discovered.I have multiple copies of this series of books so I can always loan them out without having to worry about not having a copy on hand.

Book 2 in the series. The description of the world and the backstory deepens.

I loved "Archangel" and I loved this one too. It had a bit of a slow start in my opinion, but as I got along through it I found it enjoyable.

Sharon Shinn introduces us to engaging characters in great stories that combine fantasy, Sci-if, religion and romance. She has a gift for pulling in varied readers-- my 18 year old grandson and I both love the series, have read three and eager for more. I especially love her subtle and insightful exploration of God, faith, and more, all in the rich context of a fine story.

I expected something completely different when I bought this book, having read some of her earlier works. I feel this had too much intelligent design controversy to satisfy me, but the plot was appetizing and the writing as always enjoyable. I had to read a happy book afterwards so I didn't have sad dreams. I guess I'm a wussy when it somes to facing life, that's why I read. Only read this book if you have a strong will I obviously don't have one.

I loved this book as much as I loved archangel!
