Requiem

Synopsis

Dreaming of the dead might mean a restless night for anyone, but for Nina Grey it was a warning.

Still healing from her last run-in with Hell, Nina struggles with not only her life as a Brown University student, but also as an intern at Titan Shipping, her father’s company. Recurring nightmares about her father’s violent death have become a nightly event, but being overwhelmed with guilt from Ryan’s unexpected departure to the Armed Forces, and heart ache over Claire being across the ocean to protect him, Nina believes her sleepless nights are the least of her problems—but she’s wrong.

Worried about Nina’s declining health, Jared must steal back Shax’s book for answers. Fighting new enemies, and with the help of new friends, Jared’s worst fear comes to fruition. Desperate, he is faced with a choice: Fight Hell alone, or start a war with Heaven.

Review

Requiem begins shortly after Providence ends, and continues the journey of Nina and Jared. Where there love was previously forbidden, now it’s just a danger. However, these two are committed to finding a way to make it work, come hell or high water.

Where Providence focused a lot on the romance of these characters, I felt that Requiem introduced more of the paranormal aspect. There were a couple times where I had to stop and think for a moment to keep some of it straight (not that that’s a bad thing). However, I actually enjoyed this much to my surprise. It didn’t feel like I was reading the same romance story with just more angst thrown in for story. All the mythology, if you will, definitely put an interesting twist on it and allowed the “drama” to flow easily. I’m such a sucker for romance, so I also just loved the sweetness that could be found sprinkled throughout. No matter what, Jared and Nina never let their connection waver when it would have been much easier to just quit. I also developed a profound love for the secondary characters in this installment. We got so much more insight into who they were and it was hard not to like them.

I think my favorite thing about Requiem was that it felt like a serious journey. By the time I got to the end,I felt like I had broken into a completely different book with how much Nina’s life had become altered. It was exciting and thrilling to feel like I was on the path with her, and now I’m excited to see how this trilogy will conclude!
