Can I give a book a billion stars? No? Well, I'm doing it anyway.
This book is utter perfection, and I don't mean this in a flippant way like one might say when sampling an extra fudgey brownie. "This brownie is perfection!" NO. All fudgey brownies are the same. This book is not a fudgey brownie. This book is a brownie that doesn't exist and will never exist because you cannot see with the naked eyes because of your preconceived notions of what books and brownies should be. It exists on a different plane. Reading this book is traveling into a greater existence. Let me write this review now as I crave brownies.
Four years after the events of FEATHER, Celeste, Leigh's friend, now lives in the human world, having sworn off anything having to do with the heavens and angels. But when tragedy strikes, she's reunited with someone from her past. Someone she hates with every feather on her wings. Now, on a timeclock to finish her wings, she learns the truth about what happened with Leigh and Jarod, and to let forgiveness in her heart where there had been nothing but bitterness.
My favorite trope EVER is enemies to lovers, and this hits the mark. Asher is a moody Seraphim who tasks himself with helping Celeste earn her feathers, and holy God do we get some spice. I mean I knew it would be amazing; having read Feather, I was fully prepared to fan myself. This is definitely not insta-love, but a slow burn of hate, annoyance, fun, and humor.
Dare I say it? Okay, I think CELESTIAL passed FEATHER. That doesn't happen very often. 95% of the time, sequels are always worse than the firsts, in my opinion. I didn't want it to end, and it's a long book, to begin with. But I was hoping that my kindle said 12 hours to finish rather than 7 so, Olivia, I say make STARLIGHT, like, 800 pages because I need these angels in my life.
I need some space. I miss my friends. I took this journey with them and I need to know how they're doing.
I have severe FOMO. This book destroyed me.
