***Don't forget to enter the giveaway at the end of this post***

Rayna struggles to piece her life back together, but hiding in plain sight from the police, the SS Crazy, and the Fallen isn’t a foolproof plan—something Kade, the World’s Worst Roommate, reminds her of everyday.The late nights of failing to teach Ray how to protect herself against the Fallen are getting to Kade, changing him in ways he doesn’t like, and after a family emergency sends Ray back into Cam’s arms, Kade decides he’s had enough. News of Rayna’s resurfacing brings both angels and the Fallen to San Francisco by the dozens, all eyes scouring the city for the girl with the gray wings. Rayna will need both Kade and Cam’s help to ensure her family’s safety, navigate the new dangers and enemies springing up all over the city, and manage the surprises that arise with her new set of wings.


My rating: 4.5 out of 5

A Slither of Hope is the second book in the Angel Sight series by Lisa M. Basso. If you haven't read the first, and you like angel vs. fallen angel romances with a touch of mystery, I highly recommend you pick up the first book in the series, A Shimmer of Angels!

I read A Shimmer of Angels more than a year ago and have been anxiously anticipating the release of the second book in the series ever since. I have to admit, I enjoyed A Slither of Hope more than the first book. In the first book, the main character, Rayna, was a little too insecure, wishy-washy, and just a tad too clumsy, which became annoying after a while. But in this book, Rayna kicks ass. I really loved her. Gone was the silly clumsiness and insecurity. And though she still struggles with her wishy-washy feelings for Cam and Kade (the two hot angels in her life) it came across so much better in this book.

Speaking of hot angels ... Oh boy, was I happy to see more of Kade in this book! Where Cam is the vanilla, clean-as-the-fallen-snow, heavenly angel who Rayna inexplicably has a crush on in book 1, Kade is the hot-beyond-belief Fallen angel that didn't get enough of a chance. Kade gets his chance in this book and, let me tell you, the chemistry between Rayna and Kade sizzles. Many props to Lisa Basso for making me fall for the bad boy. That's not an easy task.

The story ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, so I'm eager to read A Matter of Time to see how the author wraps this series up.

Lisa M. Basso was born and raised in San Francisco, California. She is a lover of books, video games, animals, and baking (not baking with animals though). As a child she would crawl into worlds of her own creation and get lost for hours. Her love for YA fiction started with a simple school reading assignment: S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders. When not reading or writing she can usually be found at home with The Best Boyfriend FiancĂ© that Ever Lived ™ and her two darling (and sometimes evil) cats, Kitties A and B.
