Review for Uriel's Descent by Allyson Lindt
Any entry-level angel or demon would sell their soul for Ronnie’s job—retrieval analyst for the largest search engine in the world. Ubiquity is a joint initiative between heaven and hell. Because what better way to track all of humanity’s secrets, both good and bad, than direct access to their web browsing habits?
She might appreciate the position a little more if: a) she could remember anything about her life before she started working at Ubiquity, b) the damned voice in her head would just shut up already, and c) her boss weren’t a complete control freak.
On top of that, her best friends are acting strange—researching coconuts in Fiji? Her mentor, Lucifer, is acting cryptic—more so than normal. And the two most powerful angels in history are there whenever she turns around—Gabriel seducing her, and Michael pushing her away. Worse, Ronnie’s in danger of falling for Michael. Not a good idea…because demons and angels don’t date.
Ronnie’s struggling to keep her sanity and job, while stopping the voice in her head from stealing her life. She almost misses the boredom of retrieval analysis at Ubiquity.
Allyson Lindt's "Uriel's Descent" is the first tale in the Ubiquity series. It's a very interesting mythology with angels and demons and cherubs. The characters are really deep. I love Metatron's demeanor and sarcasm. Michael is a sweet, sexy hunk of angel. I like the lost memory, lies, deception, and intrigue! I can't wait to read #2. #1 isn't quite a cliffhanger, but it leaves a lot of questions to be answered.
4.5 out of 5 stars
