Rating – 3 out of 5 stars
Ronnie has the job any entry-level angel or demon would sell their soul for—she’s a 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.
As she searches for solutions to the first two issues, and hopes the third will work itself out in performance reviews, she uncovers more petty backstabbing than an episode of Real Housewives, and a conspiracy as old as Lucifer’s descent from heaven. On top of all that, if she forgets the cover sheet on her TPS report one more time, she’s absolutely going on final written warning.
Now 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.
Ok where do I start with this one. I love the YA themes that branch in to things with the Angels and supernatural but I really didn’t know what to expect from this one. The story is about Uriel, she works at Ubiquity a place where demons who work for Lucifer watch out for trend within the human race where a cherub has escaped and possessed a human body. I think they were still trying to maintain the balance of as demons or Angels they are not meant to interfere with the human existence but must just observe. I digress, so Uriel is just starting to get the hang of her job although she has no recollection of her past life before coming to work at Ubiquity and most of all she is hearing a voice in her head which is constantly trying to take over her body.
She first thinks she is losing her mind but then she realizes that the voice in her head is more serious that she thought. And we follow Uriel as she tries to get help on what she must do about the voice in her head. She gets help from Angels Michael andGabriel but who exactly can she trust with feeling of betrayal, lust and love swirling non stop inside her. Are these really her own feelings of the do they belong to this other voice in her head.
To be honest I found this book really hard to follow, there was just too much and a lot of it seemed a but over the top. I like stories with the top angels but the way Michael was projected was a bit much for me. The story was s bit slow for me as much of the book was spent trying to get to understand the foundation of the story. I still don’t get how Uriel and Metatron reached an agreement and who is in charge even if it is 50/50 there is always a dominant side that controls.
I might be totally wrong and book 2 might be wayyy better that this one.
