Building from the conclusion of the first book in the series, Michael’s Passion, Ramatel’s Vow follows -you guessed it- Ramatel. For those who haven’t read the first book *spoiler alert* Ramatel is one of the Fallen risen from Hell after nearly 2000 years of torture in the pit. Needless to say, that much Hell-time would leave anyone with scars and Ramatel is no exception. He’s a walking, talking conglomeration of scars: both physical and emotional.
Enter Clara, a soul lifted from purgatory by the Father himself and sent back to earth, specifically our angels, to redeem herself… but she has no knowledge of who she was before or what mistakes she made to guide her. Her only guide is, apparently, Ramatel who wants nothing to do with it.
Joel Crofoot surprised me with the first A Series of Angels book and I wondered if he could deliver the same magic again. The answer: Hell yeah! Ramatel and Clara were wonderful characters with an undeniable chemistry. She’s stubborn & headstrong. He’s equally stubborn and oh-so vulnerable beneath that hard outer shell. Through most of the book there exists a delicious tease of what could be for Clara and Ramatel if they would only let it happen. And when the sparks finally do start to fly and Ramatel let’s Clara know he’s also known as the Angel of Endurance?!? Wowza.
Coupled with the drama of their almost-there relationship, the angels are up against some major demon schemes. The ‘baby angels’ from book one are back (yay!) and continuing to grow in strength and talents. Gabriel, Michael and Jahi were steady characters throughout, adding to the tapestry which joins the whole series. Needless to say, I’ve already downloaded the next book and will be diving in headfirst soon!
