Review : Lacrimosa (Requiem Book #1) by Christine Fonseca
This book makes you really consider how far you would go for true love. Would you sacrifice everything you have? Would you go against all that you consider moral and right in the world just to save that one person?
I won this book through FreeBookFriday and was excited to give it a read. As soon as I picked it up I was hooked. Lacrimosa is about an Angel named Nesy, who is given the task of destroying the Unholy, which she has been doing for 500 years since her training began. She is the best at her job as a Sentinal. That is, until she meets Aydan, who is considered the worst of the Unholy. He is a fallen angel who lures people to him and then feeds off of their human souls in order to stay alive. Her task at hand is to destroy Ayden, which she attempts to do, until she meets him and realizes he is the past love of her life, who she has worked so hard to forget.
Nesy has to choose between doing what is right in her heart and doing what she has been trained to do for the good of the world. But it’s not as black and white as it sounds. I found myself hoping for the love of Nesy and Aydan to overcome all of the obstacles in their way. The author changes the perspective of the characters and you can see firsthand the struggles that they endure in their quest for what is right. You can read from both of their viewpoints and it really pulls at your heart strings. It is in a sense a love story, but overall deals with a greater battle between two worlds, Heaven and Hell. You also get to see how real friendship comes to play.
I would definitely recommend this book to all of my friends. While there are a few parts that are predictable, the author keeps changing it up and keeps you guessing until the very end. I can’t wait to get my hands on Libera Me (Requiem Book #2).
