They want to release a monster.
The day the fire came turned Morgana into a murderer.
That past far behind her, Morgana Lockwood is now a successful young woman, living another life as the owner of a small jewellery store chain that makes beautiful accessories blessed with magic.
But two of her sisters have returned, wings and all, unchanged since Avalon. With the lives of her employees threatened, she has no choice. Morgana will have to show them where Lucifer is locked away.
Half and half book again with life on Avalon to start and then present time on earth being reincarnated, which I liked as we got to see the two worlds intertwined again. Morgana is the only daughter of Adamina and Gabriel which makes her feel a little out of sorts sometimes with some of her siblings, though mainly with her twin sisters Aera and Mora, who seem to have taken on some of the darkness of their father Uriel (an evil souled angel who just wants the power of Avalon for himself).
Innocence definitely comes to mind with Morgana. That and easily manipulated/blackmailed by her twin sisters. They like bullying her for her lack of powers but I also feel that they are jealous that she has the love of her father and theirs is just a monster with a dark heart. They should have been more cautious as it seems her gift was just staying dormant until provoked enough and once released packed quite the punch. Her trigger is fear so they should really think before attacking as her powers (ones that came to be at just the right time) will just get amplified.
Jump to part two and we go straight into the timeline just after book 2 ‘Demons and Destiny’ ended with the angels returning to heaven and Morgana being left behind. She may have been trying to find her siblings to see who they could be now but the two she probably hoped not to see again show up at her door. Seems their tactics haven’t changed and its blackmail/threaten time to harm others if she doesn’t help them. They feel she owes them but she should really stay as far away as possible. Time will tell what the master plan will be and how they will fit together but danger and trouble follow most so be careful which way you turn.
It was fun returning to this series again after a break. I think I might have liked a bit more time to expand more of their lives in the present day as was expressed in the Avalon part to start with in part one. Creative world nonetheless where magic, angels, and chaos seem to go hand in hand. Interesting to see where it goes from there.
4 out of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review.
