In Tiffany Reisz’s first instalment The Siren Soren’s character shocked me and if I’m honest scared me just a little bit. The Angel has completely changed my opinion of him. As Soren’s story unfolded I finally understood why Nora went back to him. Yes he’s still the master manipulator and his intelligence and ability to read people is still a little bit frightening but I could see that the sadist priest and the former dominatrix, seductress and erotica author love each other. It might not manifest itself in the way the average person expects it to, but for me it absolutely shone through.
The Angel isn’t as deliberately shocking as The Siren was but the story will blow your mind and scare the shit out of you when you realise that you now have an unhealthy book crush on a sadistic Priest. Like Nora herself, The Angel is beautifully complex, evocative, powerful and seductive. This series is a must, must read and goes straight into my list of favourite books of 2012.
