To Light and Guide
Cadáin's Watch, Book 3 in Daniella Bova's Storms Of Transformation series, has just been released today.
Here's the blurb:
Michelle and Jason escaped the wreckage of their beloved hometown and are determined to live free. Though they are hunted by the totalitarian bureaucracy, they vow to resist oppression no matter the cost.
But insidious evil still threatens. Once proud Americans are hopeless and unwilling to fight, making it that much harder for the rebels in their quest for Liberty.
And so, God intervenes, and the angel-warrior Cadáin is sent to watch over those whose spirits are unbroken.
I was sent a review copy which I just started reading and I am really impressed by how much the writer has grown since the first book, Tears of Paradox, which I reviewed last year. My main complaint about the first book was that we were too much in the characters' heads and as a result the pacing was erratic and at times confusing.
Cadain's Watch does not have that problem - the characters are continually in action and the narrative flows briskly. This is great because it allows the writer's talent for creating characters that feel intensely really comes through.
I was hoping to rush through this book to get a review out today but the story is getting me so emotionally engaged that I have to read it at my natural pace. I can't skim it. I'm going to get a full review out but in the meantime, congratulations to Dani Bova for Cadáin's Watch, which is promising to be a really good read.
