YA review: Lemniscate

Leminiscate (Angel Star #2)

For Teagan, these last few months have been heaven on earth- especially now that Garreth, her boyfriend and guardian angel, is earthbound. But perhaps Garreth is becoming a little more human than either of them expected.

Now, Teagan must realize that her world is once again about to shift, as she questions the faith she held in others against those once considered enemies.

In this continuation of Angel Star, Lemniscate will draw you even deeper into the world of dark and light as Teagan realizes the angel who could possibly save them all is the one angel she feared the most.(goodreads)
My thoughts... Lemniscate, the second book in the Angel Star series, took an interesting turn. In the first book, I felt very devoted to Garreth. His strength and goodness was like a beacon to Teagan. This book definitely left me second guessing my judgement of his character.  He is faced with tough decisions and makes some poor choices that effect the lives of all the characters. Many of the same people play an important role, including the evil Brynn. Teagan discovers more about her fate, as it is tied to Garreth and Hadrian and she must overcome several challenges, some emotional and very personal ones.  

Once again I am impressed with the plot development skills of Jennifer Murgia. The lives of the characters, while full of chaos and confusion, always make perfect sense in the end. I was also impressed with the use of symbolism in the book, another sign of great planning. There was quite a bit of character development in Lemniscate. Readers will also find suspense, mystery, and a bit of a love triangle. I was impressed the strength Teagan showed in the face of evil. She is come a long way since the first book and I look forward to reading her again in future installments.

Overall, this was a great sequel. If you have not read Angel Star, I definitely recommend starting there. Fans of the series will be entertained and possibly swayed to the dark side.
