Series: Angel Star #2
3 STARS: I Liked It

For Teagan, these last few months have been heaven on earth – especially now that Garreth, her boyfriend and guardian angel, is earthbound. But perhaps Garreth is becoming a little more human than either of them expected.
Now, Teagan must realize that her world is once again about to shift, as she questions the faith she held in others against those once considered enemies.
In this continuation of Angel Star, Lemniscate will draw you even deeper into the world of dark and light as Teagan realizes the angel who could possibly save them all is the one angel she feared the most.

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed reading this second installment in the Angel Star series. Unlike the first book, Angel Star, Teagan learned to rely on herself instead of her angel. I loved seeing her strength and resolve grow through this new independence.

In this second book, Teagan’s best friend is Ryan. Tea and Ryan have a lot of fun together. I enjoyed any scene with the two of them. Their banter and relationship was entertaining. I really liked Ryan. He sounded cute and trustworthy and . . . human. I kind of wish sometimes Teagan would hook up with him instead of Garreth. For me, Ryan is the Twilight’s Team Jacob equivalent.

Oh Garreth, you made me angry during this book. I’m not sure if everyone would agree with me, and I don’t want to go into details. I believe in forgiveness, but I really think there should have been more of a discussion between him and Teagan over a few of his choices. Those of you who’ve read the book know what I’m talking about. But hey, no one likes a flawless character.

A new character, Dr. Nathaniel Dean, was introduced at the end of Angel Star but played a bigger part in Lemniscate. Nate is dating Teagan’s mom. Well, I’ll let you see what happens with all that when you read it yourself.

Overall, an entertaining read! I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Side Note: Most of us don’t believe in vampires, werewolves, wizards, etc, but in this book there are angels and evil spirits. I do believe in God, angels, and evil, but I don’t believe in incarnation or angels as depicted in this book. I just wanted to be clear that I read this book like an entertaining work of fiction. 

Happy Reading!
