“Angelic” is like the Holy Grail for fans of Kelley Armstrong’s Otherworld series. It was released in January of 2010 as a limited release novella. If you didn’t order one of these in advance, you were out of luck. They were sold out before the release day. But now, it’s available on ebook, so most of us are getting our first look at the story.
It focuses on Eve, the ghost/angel who narrated Haunted
. She is just coming off of a six month stint on angel duty, and expected to spend the next 6 months on the ghostly plane with her man, Kristof. But the Fates tell her she needs to do one more job, tracking down a djinn problem. Eve is tired of getting jerked around by the powers-that-be. She’s always been a rebel, but she does a good job and she wants her due. So she decides to do the job her own way –and even hopes to get “fired” from her job as an angel while she is at it.
I like Eve. She is tough and irreverent. We also get appearances from Kristof and several of the lesser characters we met in Haunted
. I enjoyed the story and I’m so glad I got the chance to read it. I’m just as glad I’m not one of the folks who spent an exorbitant amount of money to get a copy on ebay. 4 stars.
