Summary, etc.:
Sun Queen Rielle faces new trials as she tries to maintain the Gate and is tempted by the angel Corien, while centuries later, Eliana must choose whether to embrace the crown or reject it forever.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 March #1
    As Sun Queen Rielle is seduced to the dark side, her daughter, Eliana, separated from her by centuries, tries to undo the harm caused by Rielle and to best the angels once and for all. Legrand's masterful sequel to Furyborn (2018) demands the background of the first book as it continues the collision course between the mother and daughter's endeavors to defeat dark angels, who are bent on erasing humans. An omniscient narrator alternates chapters between Rielle and Eliana, but occasionally includes other important characters, such as Corien (aka the Emperor, leader of the angels), Ludivine (a human-sympathizing angel), and Audric (Rielle's lover), among a few others. The two women's stories unfold side-by-side, revealing that Rielle's journey is a quest for seven instruments to help heal a gate protecting humankind from angry angels, while Eliana's is that of an apprentice hero learning her powers. Rich descriptions, near-constant action, and full-bodied characters keep readers riveted, although the few sexy scenes seem dropped in for effect and are not fully integrated into the story.
