- wastes no time jumping straight into the action
- still, it was missing a certain something
- not as memorable as the first book
- still wanting to learn more about Dante and his mysterious past
When a high-speed train from Milan draws into the station in Rome with a carriage full of dead bodies, Deputy Police Commissioner Colomba Caselli, a fierce detective still reeling from having survived a bloody catastrophe of her own, is called to lead the investigation. After receiving a message claiming responsibility for the killings and announcing more murders to come, officers turn their attention to a small group of Islamic extremists. But Dante Torre believes authorities are being misdirected. For him the Islamic link is a smokescreen concealing the actions of a killer who has been committing murders all over the world for years: a woman who calls herself Gilitinè, after the mythological Lithuanian goddess of death. After further carnage, Gilitinè’s murderous plans escalate to macabre heights, and only Dante and Colomba can stop her.
What I Liked
Can I just start off by saying that I was so extremely excited to be jumping back into the world of Colomba and Dante? I read Kill The Father last year and it was just the thriller that I needed. When I got to the end and realized there was a cliffhanger and that this was going to be an ongoing series, I jumped for joy! That felt like just yesterday and now here we are.
Kill The Angel was entertaining from start to finish and it wasted absolutely no time jumping straight into the action. It had me hooked from page one and I couldn’t wait to see where this story was going to go. We have a new villain that both Colomba and Dante are trying to track down and she is definitely a compelling one. A great mystery/thriller needs a great antagonist and boy did we ever get one in Kill The Angel.
What I Didn’t Like
While I loved our new villain, Kill The Angel seemed to be lacking something that Kill The Father contained. Maybe it was the fact that the story within Kill The Father was so closely linked with one of our main characters, Dante. Dante is probably my favourite character in this series and with the cliffhanger that Kill The Father gave us, I knew I needed to read Kill The Angel as soon as possible. However, it was soon very apparent that this story wasn’t really going to deal with Dante and his backstory as much which I think turned out to be a slight disappointment for me.
Kill The Angel left us with another cliffhanger that again hints at more backstory for Dante and I really hope that we get it with the third installation in this series.
