#Review: AngelStone (Dark Angel #2) by Hanna Peach | @HannaPeachBooks

(Dark Angel #2)
Hanna Peach

After escaping from the Hollows, Jordan takes Alyx and Israel to Aradale, a secret Rogue community, where they appear to be safe − for now. But did they bring the enemy with them? “Mini”, the strange and speechless young girl they rescued from the Hollows, is not as she seems. Why was Elder Michael keeping her locked up? What is she hiding? 

Out in the mortal cities, pieces of Black Stone, the only material that can disrupt the angels’ healing abilities, continue to be stolen to make weapons for Samyara’s dark army. Alyx and her friends must stop them, but this means infiltrating holy and guarded places to steal the Black Stone − a monastery in remote China, a mosque in Saudi Arabia, an art gallery in Florence and a cathedral in Peru. Can they win this deadly race against the Darkened?

DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of this book in exchange for honest review. Yes, I have been reading the series back to back. By the time you see this review, I may have already finished book 3 . . . okay, book 4.

The adventure continues! Our Rogue warriors, half-breeds and refugees are on a mission to stop the Darkened from stealing the rest of the Black Stone. On top of this, they do not realize they may or may not be harboring an unknown enemy. Alyx and Israel are having hard times, and we come across SEVERAL bumps in the roads. More secrets and mysteries unfold. New characters are brought in and you fall in love with them just as much as the other characters.

Just when we think we are getting close, we learn that we are so FAR AWAY from getting to our destination. The plot keeps building and building. Just when you think you might crash, it keeps going.
The ending is not as abrupt (I would think) as the first book, but it does leave you hanging. There are unanswered questions and dying hopes, but there are hints, bit and pieces, that keep the fire going.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars.
The suspense in this book had me over the top. Truly, I was impressed at how easily the author managed to keep the second book just as interesting as the first book, if not more. I tell you, I went a little nutty trying to keep myself together. I definitely think Israel is (as he should be) my favorite character. The budding love triangle is better than I would have expected. Really is great to know that I can keep going in the series. If I didn't have the rest of the books, I think I would go a bit insane.
