It was exciting and angdl and I had to go on to see how these characters would fare. But I think the concept here is fantastic, and the storytelling and characters are also tops. Sometimes it’s fun to wait a while after reading a good book before reviewing it, because after a delay, I’m only going to remember certain things – the really memorable, striking things about a book.

This is the 5th book in the Samria series, but the story actually takes places just after the 1st book Archangel. He’s restless at the Eyrie, which has always been his home.

And then rejected it. She will not know him at all before the wedding, and after that she will be his chattel to do with what he will. I did sharkn learning more of the angel seekers, but have to say that I really thought bad about them and can see where everyone else did too, shinm are little more than whores with the end goal to have an angel baby.

Which is easily enough done, since the angels are quite promiscuous and, having lost fifty or more angels because of Raphael, they have been encouraged to repopulate. There are perhaps too many coincidences that are required to make things work out, but that is often the case in many books that have plotting that isn’t straightforward.


Discover what to read next. I treasured their appearances. In time, these two women, whose paths will cross, will both find what they long for, in surprising-and dangerous-ways.

It succeeds on the whole, mostly because the characters and central romance are sympathetic–the latter has some of the be The stories of an angel-seeker and a Jansai girl explore the forgotten corners of Samaria’s worldbuilding. However, Shinn always does a good job in balancing the two. But – does he secretly know that their heretical stances regarding the god Jovah are true?

I couldn’t figure out how Elizabeth’s story intersects with Obadiah and Rebekah’s and was even afraid that there was a love triangle in this book. But of course their attempts had to fail so that the helpless girl could be dramatically rescued.


The first three books in this series proceeded along in chronological order. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. When the sfeker sing the songs that control the weather, often nothing happens. This is by far my favorite of the Samaria series.

I tend to write the rough draft as fast as I possibly can, over the course of four or five months. The ‘Samaria’ series is primarily romance – but it’s balanced with enough other plot elements that it doesn’t get too tedious.


I thought the romance between Obadiah and Rebekah was very sweet, which is a good thing because they both deserve to be happy. It is understandable, though, given whose perspective this story shxron told through.

There is quite a lot of tension, but none of the resentment and barely suppressed anger that characterized Rachel and Gabriel’s tumultuous relationship. Angel babies are rare, and most mortal babies produced from these unions are abandoned. Thanks for telling us about the problem.


Elizabeth just made obstacles for herself. I mean, we still don’t know what’s so special about their baby, but it was satisfying to get a little more of their story.

The Angels are aware of them, but don’t object.

Angel-Seeker (Samaria, #5) by Sharon Shinn

There had been some major change in the world, and I was left wondering what was going to happen next. I love Shin I love coming back to the world of Samaria, and the fact that this book takes up the story of a beloved side character from the first novel Archangel and is set soon after the events of that novel is another reason I enjoyed this book so much.

Throughout Archangel the angels sneeringly talk about the angel-seekers — the camp followers of the Samarian world. In time, these two women, whose paths will cross, will both find what they desire, in surprising – and dangerous – ways Shinn did with the Jansai – it just doesn’t do for me. At the time I had no idea it was actually the first book in a series–the Samaria series.

It was always full of pretty girls, you know, groupies, looking to meet guys in the band. The ominous atmosphere to the Jansai city of Breven did not help.

He is sent by the Archangel Gabriel to go to Breven and deal with the Jansai.

Tired of her lot in life, she leaves for Cedar Hills with one goal in mind.
