About the book:

In the old world shadows of Providence, Rhode Island, Nina Grey finds herself the center of a war between Hell and Earth.
Struggling with her father’s recent death, Nina meets Jared Ryel by chance…or so she believes. Although his stunning good looks and mysterious talents are a welcome distraction, it soon becomes clear that Jared knows more about Nina than even her friends at Brown University. When questions outnumber answers, Jared risks everything to keep the woman he was born to save—by sharing the secret he was sworn to protect.
When her father’s former associates begin following her in the dark, Nina learns that her father is not the man she thought he was, but a thief who stole from demons. Searching for the truth behind her father’s death, Nina stumbles upon something she never expected—something Hell wants—and only she holds the key.

What would you do if both Heaven and Hell were after you? That is exactly what Nina finds from the start of Requeim. While a life without Jared is obviously not possible; Nina is still trying to keep her grasp on a normal life. She will soon find that with extraordinary comes a price, and normality may just be debt due. The heart stopping romance that I have come to expect from McGuire is slightly witheld in this second novel. Understandably the storyline ties nicely, but it was a little disheartening to see the struggles and lack of devotion that was present the first book. I have high hopes that the third book with compensate for the dedication. On the otherhand, I was overjoyed to see several character transform throughout this novel. Ryan, first off was not my favorite person in books one, but after his display in Requiem I may just be one of his biggest fans. I love the development of his character, and was astounded with the military man persona that he took on these pages. Claire is another character that was difficult to fully enjoy throughout Providence. With her kick ass attitude is was easy to support her, but with her deep seeded resentment it was harder to actually enjoy her. By the end of the first book I could see there was more to her character than readers were able to grasp, but Requiem put her in the limelight, and displayed her character nicely. I am also a huge fan for her as well. I was estactic with the development of everyone, and can't wait to see where new development will take the series. McGuire swiftly moved this story along, and dedicated this novel to action rather than romance. Being a fan of the romance I was surprised at the talented see displays in effortlessly changing the direction of her story. Beware that bombs drop from the end of this novel. It will be a desperate wait for the next book. BOOKWHISPERER RECOMMENDED!!!
