There is nothing better to me than settling down after a long day and enjoying a good book. Last year I was able to read Monica McGurk’s Dark Hope. This was the first book in her Archangel Prophecies. Dark Hope was so interesting I was eagerly awaiting the second book in the series, Dark Rising. I was so excited when I found that she had sent me a copy of Dark Rising. What a read it was. It picked up where the first book left off with the story of Hope Carmichael and Michael her protector. Hope was abducted as a small child and when she returned she had a mysterious mark on her neck. This mark leads Hope and Michael on a journey throughout the world to find the “key” that will save the world. Along the way, they must deal with the Fallen Angels who are determined to stop them in their quest. They journey from the United States, to Turkey, Ireland and France. All in a quest to save the world. What adventures they have. I won’t reveal too much because it is such a good read you will want to discover for yourself.
I enjoyed this book just as much as I did the first book. As I turned each page I became engrossed in the story and didn’t want to put it down. Monica McGurk is a talented writer that makes you feel like you are in the places the characters are exploring. The best thing about this series is that the story is unlike anything I have ever read. It is new. It is fresh, and takes turns that you wouldn’t even expect. Every chapter introduces a new twist that take the story in a direction I wasn’t anticipating. The only thing that I didn’t like is that it ended and left my dying to read the 3rd book in the series. I want to know what happens next in Hope and Michaels story.
