Obumbrate by Alivia Anderson, review
The second installment was just as good as the first. I totally couldn't put it down. I have definitely ordered the paperbacks. I'm excited to see where this series is going. Book 2 left off in a precarious place. What is Essie going to do now? And not to mention that kiss w/ Kayden. Woot? Loved it. Even though only moments earlier it was like she almost was going to kiss Ari. The other Nephilium. But she feels a pull to him too. I'm definitely #TeamKayden all the way. demon or not!!!
Essallie Hanley just wishes her life could go back to normal. But what's normal when you carry the burden of knowing you're a half-angel created for war, that the only person who can help you is a demon still waiting to kill you, and that your only chance for salvation rested in a boy who died in front of you?
If Essallie had turned her back on everything she'd learned, she could have made the most of her fractured life. That is, until Kayden told her that she's a ticking time-bomb; that at any given moment her blood could betray her, her veins burning her alive from the inside out until nothing but ash remains.
Desperate to find answers, and possibly find her only chance for survival, Essallie heads back for New York City, back to the place where it all began. With every answer comes a price, and with every price the risks and rewards become greater. But when Essallie soon finds herself the target of an unknown hunter determined to have her, all appears to be at wits' end. Until Ari, a man claiming to be Nephilim, steps in. Charming, gentle, and boldly brave, he seems to be exactly what Essallie needs.
Could Ari be the missing piece of her puzzle, or is he the promise of her demise?
