When good fails, chaos rises to the challenge.The daily life of a chaos demon is delightfully sinful—overindulging in Sri Lankan delicacies, trespassing on private beaches in Hawaii, and getting soused at the best angel bar on the planet. But when Bedlam learns that the archdemon Azrael has escaped from the Abyss in order to wreak vengeance against the person who sent her there—Bedlam’s best friend, Khet—he can’t sit idly by.Only one relic possesses the power to kill Khet, who suffers immortality at Lucifer’s request: the mythical Spear of Destiny, which pierced Christ’s side at His crucifixion. Neither angel nor demon has seen the Spear in two thousand years, but Azrael claims to know its location. Bedlam has no choice but to interpret woefully outdated clues and race her to its ancient resting place.His quest is made nearly impossible by the interference of a persnickety archivist, Keziel—his angelic ex—and a dedicated cult intent on keeping the Spear out of the wrong hands. But to Bedlam, “wrong” is just an arbitrary word, and there’s no way he’s letting Khet die without a fight.
Another solid Urban Fantasy novel from Corrigan. I was interested to see how she would swing the shift in narrator but we just a three person trade off. Keeping up with Cassie, as usual, who is struck by the departure of Gabriel and the inconsistency of Bedlam. We get to see into the mind of Bedlam and he lives up to his gift of chaos because keeping on track through his thoughts is impossible. I found his ability to converse with himself slightly annoying toward the end. However, his heart of gold shone through in his quest to save Cassie. Our final narrator is an angel called Siren who is the speaker of truth. I liked this new character much more than I thought. She was a slice of responsibility without Cassie's need to constantly help others. I adored her truth telling abilities even when they were slightly abrasive. Siren gave the story more order when Bedlam was a riot of random emotions and focuses.
I was sucked in from beginning to end and will definitely be continuing the series. I want to know if angels will ever be able to love without their tragic stories. Could Gabriel and Cassie ever be together? Will Bedlam be redeemed from his selfish one true love? This is truly a brilliant start to a series that could take us anywhere. The future is endless and if these past two books are anything to go off, it will be a marvelous ride.
