If you're looking for action: This is it.
If you want suspense: it's there.
How about sci-fi with a riveting plot: check.
Sprinkles of humor: Yup.
Believable characters: checked - twice.
Definitely worth price & time.
Damn this is good reading. Yes there are som pretty steaming sex scenes as well there, so the very young & faint at heart should look elsewhere.
However the riveting plot, the character development, humor and suspense makes this a sound investment of money and time. Best urban fantasy i ever read. It must have been good fun inventing all Rachels somewhat less than holy language.
Another masterpiece. I particularly like the twist about the less than perfect angels. It feels like the sex scenes just happens as the story progresses. They are not overly graphical or there to please the reader. Again plot, humor etc makes this well worth price and time. Two things though. To my taste the ending feels a bit short. It would, for example, have been fun to learn what happened to Donald at the trial. Also i´d love a sequel but much rather a good one than a fast one.
