Review: Requiem by Jamie McGuire

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.

Jamie McGuire is 3 for 3, another great read. After reading Providence, I could not wait for the sequel. Requiem did not disappoint. I loved the addition of Bex as a main character; his angel side is mature way beyond his years while his human side is your typical 13 year old boy. It was also great to see Nina throw away her damsel in distress title and get in the fight. Jared also changes in that he stands his ground alot more with Nina. In Providence, I made the comment that sometimes Jared appears to be a little whipped; in Requiem he does not succumb to Nina's every want and whim. He actually is pretty stubborn and stands his ground if he feels that what he's doing is in her best interest. Overall a great read. My only complaint was that the plot got a little too far out there at times and there was almost too much going on. It also moved quite fast; I don't mean that as a negative aspect of the book, but I blinked and Sophomore year was over.

I absolutely love these characters especially Nina and Jared. Their relationship is full of, heart blowing romance!!! My favorite part of this book has to be the direction and development she took with her characters. Though I didn't think it was possible, I loved them even more the second time around. This is a great series that I highly recomend. Can't wait for book 3.
