Welcome to day's stop on the A Slither of Hope (Angel Sight #2)by Lisa M Basso Blog Tour presented by Month9Books and hosted by Chapter by Chapter. Today's stop is a review as well as a chance to enter the great giveaway that is being run throughout this tour.
Wow! I have just finished turning the last page and what a place to finish. I think I had to check a couple of times that there wasn't more pages.
Like book 1, in the series, A Shimmer of Angels, this did not really go where I expected it to. This is a good thing as having read a number of stories about angels, it is nice to read a story where things don't necessarily go where you expect.
I liked that this instalment showed us Kade's point of view in parts as well as Rayna's as it gave us a better picture of the story as it unfolded.
When we catch up with Rayna and Kade at the beginning of this book, a few weeks have passed since the events at the end of book 1 and we find that while the world has continued to turn for the rest of the world, Rayna is in something of a holding pattern, granted one holding a new identity but she is still no closer than to anything that can help with the situation that brought her to the attention of the angels and fallen, her family, SS Crazy and the police.
While, Rayna's life may be in a holding pattern, this story certainly wasn't. Right away we are hit surprise after surprise as Rayna's attempts to try and get her life back and protect those that she loves. The more I read of this story, the more I got into it and it felt like i read the back half of the story in the blink of an eye, and as mentioned above, shocked when I got to the end and had no more to read. I will be in on tenterhooks until book 3 comes out.
I also love Rayna and Kade's chemistry together. I have also felt it much more than the chemistry between Rayna and Cam and in this story we get to see more of the chemistry between all three and it is fun to watch!
One of the best parts of this story is that we get more information. We learn more about the angels, more about the fallen, more about Ray's family. This all fits together nicely in the story and is nicely paced so that it adds to the enjoyment and construction of the over all story. This, along the with the combination of both expected and unexpected developments lends itself to more enjoyable than expected story.
I give this story 3 1/2 stars!

Author: Lisa M Basso
Rayna struggles to piece her life back together, but hiding in plain sight from the police, the SS Crazy, and the Fallen isn’t a foolproof plan—something Kade, the World’s Worst Roommate, reminds her of everyday. The late nights of failing to teach Ray how to protect herself against the Fallen are getting to Kade, changing him in ways he doesn’t like, and after a family emergency sends Ray back into Cam’s arms, Kade decides he’s had enough. News of Rayna’s resurfacing brings both angels and the Fallen to San Francisco by the dozens, all eyes scouring the city for the girl with the gray wings. Rayna will need both Kade and Cam’s help to ensure her family’s safety, navigate the new dangers and enemies springing up all over the city, and manage the surprises that arise with her new set of wings.
